Your photography questions



☰ We already have a videographer booked, does this affect me booking yourselves for my wedding photography?

Not at all, we believe 100% in freedom of choice. It's your wedding and you can choose us for your wedding film, or wedding photography or both. We are totally professional and have worked with hundreds of other videographers including many of the top videographers in the world.


☰ How long does it take for us to get our wedding photographs?

We aim to get your proof images online within 3 weeks of your wedding day. During peak season this may extend a little and if this is the case we will let you know. You can also track the progress of your wedding photographs through our AMD Studios Client Area.
We also offer a fast track priority editing option where we will edit your proof images within 3 working days. The fast track editing is available as an optional extra.



☰ How long does it take to get my wedding album?

Typically your final wedding album is ready 2-3 months after your wedding. Your proof photographs are online usually within 3 weeks and once you have viewed these you choose which images your would like in your album, most clients take about 1 month to make their choices. We will then begin the design process which takes 2 weeks. Once you have approved the final design all hand-made albums take 3 weeks to build (Not including Bank Holidays, Public Holidays or Government enforced lockdowns).


☰ I'm nervous of being photographed, I don't like cameras in my face! How do you help me get around this?

At AMD Studios we have an excellent reputation for being very friendly, approachable, understanding and professional. We listen to our clients needs, we offer a complimentary pre-wedding shoot with most wedding packages where approximately six to four weeks before wedding takes place we invite you to attend a pre-wedding photoshoot. This lets us go over some of the photographs we will shoot on your wedding day and also helps you to feel more comfortable with being professionally photographed. It's this level of personal attention that lets you know you are working with a great team.

Our cameras are superb and we do not need to be in your face to get a beautiful close-up. We are very discrete during the wedding ceremony, we wear smart attire during your wedding day and couples very often tell us how relaxed and enjoyable they found their photography experience.


☰ What format can I have my digital images in?

Your wedding photographs are digital files. Your photographs are supplied in a minimum size of 9in x 6in (15cm x 23cm approx) at 350dpi in very high quality JPEG. You can have your photographs presented as follows:
Online download
TIFF format*
USB stick
USB credit card stick*
Personalised USB memory sticks*
*Optional extra.

At AMD Studios we have an excellent reputation for being very unobtrusive. Our cameras are superb and we do not need to be in your face to get a beautiful close-up. We do not move around during the wedding ceremony either. We wear smart attire during your wedding day and couples very often tell us how they didn't even realize we were at their wedding which is testament to our filming style. We don't stage shots either, in fact, the work our clients love the most is when they didn't even know they were being filmed.

It's your choice! We can of course help you to chose the music for your wedding film but most couples like to decide themselves.

Your general questions



☰ Can we change the date of our wedding booking?

Yes you can. There are a couple of conditions you should keep in mind:

Where your current wedding date has been made unavailable due to a Government enforced lockdown we will work with you to move your booking to your new wedding date. You will not be charged for moving your wedding date.

Where your current wedding date is being moved due to a change in personal circumstances we will work with you to move your wedding booking to your new wedding date. If your new wedding date is a date where a price increase applies, you will be charged at the price for you new wedding date.

If we are unable to rebook your current wedding date for your new wedding date your deposit will not be refunded if the change in dates takes place more then 14 days after your original wedding booking was commissioned.


☰ Can we change our photography or videography package?

Of course, many clients do this as they get nearer to their wedding day. You are free to pick and choose between any of our wedding packages before and after your wedding.


☰ How many of you attend our wedding?

In most cases 2 of us will attend your wedding to cover your wedding photography or wedding photography.

For combined wedding photography and wedding videography packages we work with a team of 3 or 4 members. If you have the drone commissioned this will add an extra person (pilot) attending your wedding.


☰ Do you wear a uniform?

Yes we do. We certainly don't attend your wedding in jeans and a t-shirt! All of our crew wear the smart AMD Studios uniform. We don't wear suits because we need to be identifiable, plus a suit can get a little restrictive when you need to move around quickly or carry equipment. The clothing we wear at wedding shows and client meetings is the same uniform we wear to your wedding.


☰ Can I have my images edited in Adobe Photoshop?

We provide two different types of image editing, most commonly referred to as 'Photoshopping.' Depending on the photography package you have chosen this will reflect the type of editing we will do to your images.

Type A: Normal Editing. This can include cropping, sharpening, exposure adjustments, white balance adjustments, conversion to monochrome and saturation adjustments. Type A Normal Editing is done during the creation of image proofs and is also standard for digital packages where no wedding album is required or ordered.

Type B: Enhanced Editing. This can include all of 'Type A Normal Editing' as well as object removal, blemish removal, spot colour (Monochrome images with one colour shown), dramatic effects and compositing effects. Type B Enhanced Editing is standard for images placed into an album produced by ourselves.

If you have a digital package and you wish enhanced editing on some photographs this can be done for £25-£75 per image depending on the complexity of the edit. The price is decided on an image-by-image basis so we ask you contact us for further information.


☰ What are your payment terms?

A deposit of £200 is required for photography or videography on all weddings where our coverage is less than 15 hours. For weddings longer than 15 hours the deposit is £250.

A deposit of £400 is required for combined photography and videography packages on all weddings where our coverage is less than 15 hours. For weddings longer than 15 hours the deposit is £500.

All deposits are refundable for up to 14 days, thereafter deposits are non-refundable. Your final balance is payable one calendar month prior to the date of your wedding. Payments can be made by card, bank transfer or via PayPal. If you choose to pay in installments, you will be sent a receipt and balance statement for each payment made.

All prices are quoted in GBP and are inclusive of VAT.


☰ We have something different at our wedding, is that OK?

Great! We love that little something different at weddings. As long as you let us know what is planned we will do our best to work with you and make sure it is included on your wedding coverage.


☰ Do you have Insurance?
