Here are a few answers to commonly asked questions
1. I hate photos, and I hate posing, can we just do candid?
Yes! (kind-of) One thing I try really hard to do is help you guys relax and enjoy the photos, so If I'm doing my job right, It won't be awkward, but it will actually feel natural and a whole lot of fun! - If you're still not sure, many of my past clients comment on this aspect on the reviews page :)
2. Can we meet before booking so I know what you are like?
Yes! I totally understand why you would want to do this, so if you fill the enquiry form on the weddings page, we can organise coffee or a video call.
3. How will I receive my photographs?
We deliver via a beautiful online gallery, with a secure and personalised link, for you to view, download and share.
With the All-Inclusive package we also send a custom USB stick packaged with some small prints.
4. Who is Stanley Pictures?
Jacob is the main photographer, Ariel (Jacob's beautiful wife) is in charge of the finances (naturally). We also have some videographers - Sho and Eugene - who sometimes work for us.
5. Do you offer videography?
Sorry, no, but I can recommend some great videographers I have worked with.
6. When will I receive my photographs?
A few days after your Wedding you will receive a 'sneak peak'.
Within 6-8 weeks after your wedding day I will have a full online gallery sent your way.
7. Do you charge for travel?
Travel in and around Christchurch is included, outside of Christchurch will need to come in to the hours shooting.
8. Do we have rights to print our photos?
Yes you do and please do make some prints! Photos come to life when they get printed.
The only thing you can't do is sell them for profit or supply them straight to vendors - they need to contact me for that.
9. Can I get albums or framed prints through you?
Yes, there is a shop area inside the online gallery with tons of options, custom albums too!
10. Do you do engagement shoots and pre wedding shoots?
Yes, check out the 'Couples' tab.
11. What does the booking process look like?
First you can fill out the form on the weddings page, then we can arrange a time to catch up either in person or on a call. If you are all happy from there I'll send an online quote through my booking system. If you accept the quote, a contract, questionnaire and invoice will be generated for you online.
We'll get together for a coffee or video call a couple weeks before the wedding (or earlier if you like) and we can discuss the finer details of the day.
So what are you waiting for? Let's catch up :)
