Questions and Answers

What's your style?

Joanne Keighery Photography

I'm so glad you asked because it's really important to have a photographer who shares your vision for your day. My style is romantic, feminine and classical with a strong editorial focus. Editorial simply means what you'd expect to see in a magazine or print. When I say my style is classical, it means I'm not taking photos in a 'trendy' way - in fact I steer clear of trends. I really love looking at other photographers images on Instagram and how they really spin some great modern looks but I like my work to look romantic, fresh and elegant. I edit carefully so the colours you carefully picked out for your details and bridal party are accurate in your images.  Check out my website and view my blog on there - thats the best way to get an idea. 

Will you be directing us all day?

Joanne Keighery Photography

No definitely not. I like to think of myself as a fairly quiet presence through your day, just here to provide some gentle guidance when necessary or to help you out. In the getting ready portion, I busy myself capturing everything thats going on. We may do some pictures with bridesmaids and a few bridal portraits but I'm generally out of the way. I may suggest a nice well lit space to put on your dress. After the ceremony (or before in some cases), we'll head out and I will give some direction for portraits. I like to think I'll give you enough instruction to look natural but not so little you stand around wondering what to do with your hands. It might be something as simple as 'hey go for a walk, hold hands, talk to each other'.

I'm worried about how I will look in high resolution. Will your photos show all that up.

Joanne Keighery Photography

Todays modern cameras really do show everything up.  I edit all images carefully - in fact, I edit skin to look beautiful but still natural. Not only do i look out on the day for lipstick on teeth or any number of things, but we can have a chat about any temporary blemishes if they occur, so don't stress if you have a break out. (There may be a further editing charge if every image needs something removed). I don't alter appearances in dramatic ways though -  I don't thin people down etc. This is because I think you already look gorgeous as you are! 

How many photos will we get?

Joanne Keighery Photography

You receive approximately 100 images per shooting hour. Obviously, this can change. For example, a wedding held completely at night may have less.  I give you as many as I can. 

What if it rains heavily?

Joanne Keighery Photography

No doubt this is tricky. I do check the weather the week of every wedding and we have a chat if its looking rainy. We can do some in the rain with an umbrella but I don't always think this is a great idea. You don't want to get your dress and shoes muddy and wet. We can do them indoors and this works great for beautiful venues. We could move portrait time to earlier in the day. I will present you with a rain plan if the forecast is not looking good. When all fails and you just want the dreamy portraits you envisoned, I have done reshoots before - thats where you put your dress back on, hubby dons the suit again, (or you two grooms get your suits on) you get hair and make up done again and we go out another time. I offer super reasonable rates for reshoots.
