Thank You

A belated ‘thank you’ to everyone who attended the Fennes Open Day, we enjoyed meeting new clients as well as existing ones and had a very successful day.

 
 
 

Paying Venue Commissions

My good friend and fellow Photographer Dave Court of Court on Camera has written a great blog on how he is recommended by Venues for his work and not for a commission. This I fully agree with. Recommendations should be for consistently doing a good job, not for money. Our clients can rest assured that the Venues that kindly list us as a preferred supplier do not receive any payment.

 
 
 

Wedding of Carly & Darren

Despite the weather being a bit chilly on Carly & Darren’s Wedding day, the Ceremony was held outside in the Gazebo at Newland Hall, Roxwell.  The Autumn colours were fantastic and we took full advantage of this and produced some beautiful pictures.  The Guests were entertained during the Wedding Breakfast by the marvelous Magician, Nick Crown.

The Wedding of Kieran & Becky was held at Parklands, Quendon Hall.  As well as providing a lovely setting, there are lots of areas inside Parklands for photographs.  Kieran & Becky were happy to oblige. 

 
 
 

Wedding of Sally & Wayne

Sally & Wayne were married at The Fennes, Bocking on a lovely day. The Fennes provides numerous opportunities for creating wonderful photographs and Sally & Wayne enjoyed being photographed.  Thank you to Glenn Mayes (Toastmaster) for assisting us on the day.

 
 
 

Jeff & Coral's Wedding

Newland Hall, Roxwell, was the chosen venue for Jeff & Coral’s Wedding Day.  Despite being a cold day, Jeff, Coral and their Guests braved the cold, allowing David and I to take some nice photographs outside.

 
 
 

Wedding of Patrick & Kathrine

The weather was kind to us for the Wedding of Patrick & Kathrine.  After photographing Kathrine at her parents’ house we travelled to the beautiful Layer Marney Tower.  After the Ceremony, with the weather being dry and not cold, various photographs were taken around the grounds.

 
 
 

The News today

Today the National News is full of how one photographer has been (rightly) sued for truly dreadful work. Just one of the multitude currently giving true Professional Photographers a bad name. Many are new to the profession, many are unqualified, untrained or even part-timers, doing a full time job in the week just earning a bit of spare cash at the weekend.
We are members of the two UK Qualifying Bodies for Full Time Professional Photographers, The Master Photographers Association and The British Institute of Professional Photography. There are other Associations which look very convincing but allow ANYBODY to be a member!
Our clients can ask the above for binding arbitration should we ever have a dispute that we can not resolve between us.
Do ask questions of your Photographer, are they insured, are they qualified Members of one of the above, can you see THEIR work, do they have testimonials, do you like them as a person, are they passionate about what they do or is it just for that bit of extra cash?
Price is important, but don’t spoil the wedding! Think about it, every wedding takes us 30-40 hours of work and uses skill level built from many years experience and on-going training, let alone the thousands of pounds of photographic and computing equipment and back-up spares that are needed.
Question why somebody would offer to do photography AND video for under £1450? Buyer beware!
