FAQ - Chris Randle Photography




Where are you based?

I live near Newcastle in the North East of England

Are you willing travel?

Hell YES! Pretty much anywhere! If you're getting married, I want to capture it; regardless of location! UK, Europe, and beyond! I'll travel anywhere in the world :)

Are you a full time wedding photographer?

Yes. Weddings & elopements are my only focus. I want to give you my full attention, and I simply can’t do that if I’m working elsewhere or shooting other genres of photography.

Why just weddings?

Weddings are THE shit! I love photographing people. I love the atmosphere at weddings. Most importantly I love how two people are bringing two families together as one. It’s amazing! I absolutely live and breathe wedding photography, it’s awesome!

Can we meet you before you book?

That depends. If you’re close to Newcastle, then I’d jump at the opportunity to meet you. If not, then don’t sweat it… We can Skype/Google Hangout whenever is best for you! Same goes before your wedding.

How do we go about booking?

I try to make my business as eco as possible. Everything is based online, so I’ll send you an invoice for your booking fee and the booking form. Simply transfer the booking fee, and sign the booking form and your date is secured. It takes five minutes, so there’s very little chance of someone beating you to the punch!

Do you do formal group shots on the day?

I do BUT the whole reason you’re booking me is for my natural style. For this reason, I try to limit group shots to 6-8 formal shots. It’s impossible for me to capture the moments if I’m busy herding cats (organising group shots).

We’re pretty nervous about having our photo taken, how does that affect you?

It doesn’t. Honestly, I hate having my photo taken too. I feel this helps me because I can relate. I’ve also invested in workshops and education within photography to make sure that I know how to relax you and capture you at your best. If you’re still worried, then I offer a connection session. This allows you to see how I work, get some practise before your big day, and hopefully shatter those nerves.

How do we book the connection session?

Well you can do this at anytime. You can book when you book me for your wedding, or anytime leading up to it. I’ll just add it to your invoice. You could even book a connection session before you book me for your wedding, consider it a trial run. If you love the photos, you can then book me for your wedding. If not, you’re free to look elsewhere.

When do we pay the remaining balance?

Your final balance is due 28 days before your wedding.

Do we need to provide a meal for you?

It’s not necessary however I do appreciate it when my couples feed me. It can be awkward though, as I’m vegan and some venues find it hard to put together some rabbit food… If that’s the case, I can bring my own.

How do we receive our photographs?

Your images will be uploaded onto a private online gallery for you and your guests to view. From there you may download your images watermark free and at high resolution. If you’d prefer something a bit more tangible, then you can add a custom USB to your package for £150.

How long will it take to receive our photographs?

I like to take my time with your images so that you get a high quality set of images. For this reason, it can take anything up to 12 weeks to upload your images during busy season and a further two weeks for your USB (should you opt for one)

Are you insured?

Yes, by Hiscox.

Do you love your job?

One million times, yes!!! There’s no better feeling than making people happy, and knowing that my couples are going to be super awesome happy when they receive their photos… Well… That just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside 🙂
