FAQs About My Services

HOW MUCH COVERAGE DO WE NEED?

Typically, a wedding day has a few familiar key elements:
* Bridal Preparations
* Ceremony
* Meal
* Speeches
* Cake Cut
* First Dance
If you’d really like all of these elements captured, then it’s best to book my All Day Package, which gives you 10 hours of coverage. This is usually enough to span the bridal preparations through to first dance. This is my most frequently requested length of coverage.
However, as optional extras, you might also like to capture the Groom/2nd Partner Preparations, or ask me to stay beyond the first dance for any evening entertainment you may wish to have recorded in images.
I offer consecutive coverage in all cases which means that if you are considering my Part Day Package, you’ll need to choose which neighbouring elements of your day are the most important to you. This can span anywhere from 2-9 hours. Most couples opting for shorter coverage choose to capture the ceremony through to the first dance, or at least just the ceremony and a few portraits afterwards.
If you’re trying to figure out how long you’d like, some general advice is to work from your ceremony time. For bridal preparations, I usually arrive to capture 1.5 hours before leaving enough time to travel to and park at your ceremony venue, around 30-minutes ahead of you.
Travel time between your venues is included in the coverage time.

Kate Hennessy Photography Reviews

 

DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF KENT?

Yes! I frequently photograph weddings in East Sussex, Surrey and on the Kent/London border.

My packages listed on my website are priced for Kent so just let me know as much as you can about your wedding and I’ll let you know whether any additional expenses are necessary.

CAN WE HAVE AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?

Yes please! See my page here which explains about why it's a great idea and what to expect!

CAN WE HAVE AN ALBUM?

Yeah! Why keep your photos on your computer? Enjoy them every day, see them in your home, share them with visitors! I offer a gorgeous, high-end 100-image, 8"x8" album with splash-proof, board-like pages and various options for the cover and box! I'll bring one to our pre-wedding meeting so you can have a look!

CAN WE HAVE BOTH PARTNERS' PREPARATIONS CAPTURED?

You’ll both be able to see aspects of your wedding which you weren’t able to see on the actual day! It’s exciting and gives you some surprises to look forward to after the wedding day is over (boo)!
If you are both getting ready in the same place (i.e. the same hotel) then this can be included within all day coverage if time allows. My second photographer will capture these images.
In most other circumstances, whereby you are getting ready in different locations you can book this as an additional service for if you fancy it!

WHY DO WE NEED A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?

My assistant photographer will attend your all-day coverage wedding at no additional cost to you, as she will be there partly to support me in my role as your main wedding photographer. She remains in the same locations as me throughout your day and has two main responsibilities; the first is to help ensure smooth-running, for example, by helping to rally and organise your guests for any group shots you may wish to have. You’d be surprised at how helpful a second person can be! At all other times, she is helping to maximise the coverage of your day by providing a different perspective, focus or angle. You’ll love her complementary images, which I edit in my style to ensure a cohesive collection.

You can also add on a separate location, for example, to capture Groom/Partner 2 Preparations. She'll be acting as the main photographer for this period. It can involve slightly different skills and there are some additional expenses, editing and logistics involved which justify charging an additional fee for this service.

HOW DO YOU PROTECT OUR IMAGES?

It is a fact of life that technology can and does have issues sometimes. However, I have at least two of everything and unless something extreme happens, I will have enough equipment with me as a back-up on the day. Phew!
I have comprehensive insurance and my equipment is well maintained so I have taken every preparatory step I can to protect your images.
You may also like to know that I shoot with two cameras and both have a dual card slot. This means that the photos are written as duplicates to two memory cards at the same time. Therefore, if one card fails for any reason, there are duplicate images on the partner card. Even better, since I shoot with two cameras, I have four memory cards recording duplicate pairs of images throughout the entire day! It sounds a bit technical, but essentially, I have every portion of your day across at least four memory cards (and that’s before my second shooter’s images too)!
