Questions and Answers

How much deposit should I pay?

Bliss Images Photography & Cinema

We only require a 20% deposit, with the remainder not due until 2 weeks before the wedding.

Be exceptionally careful if anyone asks for more than 30%.... almost every couple who's come to us after having to cancel their old photographer last minute, had paid them a 40% or 50% deposit. That’s probably not a coincidence

What’s the difference between your Flat rate vs Hourly packages?

Bliss Images Photography & Cinema

Unless you’ve planned dozens of weddings, you couldn’t be expected you to know how many hours coverage to book, so luckily, much of the industry has moved towards flat rate packages….  that is, a package that describes the parts of the day covered and is less about an arbitrary amount of time. 

We still offer packages where you can book a certain number of hours, although these are usually selected by couples seeking more modest coverage, perhaps just a few hours.

The benefits of flat rate: With so many variables on the big day, we’re drawing on 500 weddings of experience, to guide us when planning the coverage timeline.  For example, we’ll usually set aside an extra 20 minutes during the morning for a bridal party with 5 bridesmaids and groomsmen, vs say 3 of each.   We plan to get to the ceremony well ahead of the start time…. 30 minutes on average.  Making your wedding a stress free day, usually doesn’t start with cutting things close to the wire :)

1 Photographer or 2?

Bliss Images Photography & Cinema

That depends…. if you’ve got the budget to cover 2 really great photographers, then absolutely, go for it.  Some serious magic happens, when a pair of photographers at the top of their game, bounce off each other’s creativity!

But if you’ve only got the budget for 1.5 great photographers for the day, then spreading it over a package that includes 2 photographers, the best you could hope for is 1 good and 1 average photographer… possibly just 2 average photographers.  And ‘average’ photographers will be missing that innate ability to just know what the other is thinking, especially during times such as the ceremony that require absolute silence.

Really great photographers usually don’t work for free, so 2 of them in a full day package should cost around 75% more than just 1.   Anything less than this, and you’re at risk of signing up for either: a junior photographer, a less skilled photographer not able to cut it on their own, or the spouse of a photographer.
