Sansom Photography Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve tried to answer all the common questions we get asked all the time on this page but if you still would like to know more please feel free to get in touch!

Are we insured?

We’ve got just about every insurance you can think of. Even the dog and cats are insured as highly as possible! We take every precaution when it comes to weddings but Public Liability and business insurance in a no brainer!

Do you use Digital or Film cameras?

Digital! We love our film photography but there are so many advantages to digital that it makes absolutely no sense to not use them! We might bring a few film cameras along on the day but only for one or two shots!

Do you travel abroad for Destination weddings?

We’re honoured to be commissioned for work around the world and each year we take on a select number of international weddings. We know the time that goes into destination weddings and we take these assignments incredibly seriously with each event being our sole focus during our time abroad.

Do you travel abroad for engagement shoots?

Destination Engagement shoots are the perfect alternative to a wedding abroad and we love to shoot 3-4 international engagements per year. Here are some past examples – Slovenia & Marbella.

When do you arrive in the morning?

Verity usually aims to get around 2 and a half hours of bridal prep in her coverage and therefore arrives around 3 hours before the ceremony. From there Chris heads straight over to the grooms location.

How long do you stay in the evening?

Our coverage usually ends at midnight or after the first dance depending on your chosen package. For more information please request a brochure here

Do you do group formals?

We pride ourselves in being genuine documentary photographers, working from the background. That said we both realise that most wedding need some group formals, we’re happy to do around 5 or 6 on the day.

Do you need food on the day?

We are always extremely grateful for a hot meal during weddings however we realise this isn’t always possible an so we’re more than happy to arrange our own meal if required.

How many photographs can I expect to receive?

You will receive 600-800 images from your day depending on light and time of year. each image is individually edited and presented in full resolution on USB free to print and share as you wish.

How long will it be before I receive my images?

Every single image is individually checked and edited before being sent. As such it’s a process we will never ‘fast track!. Edits can take up to 8 – 12 weeks.

Do you offer albums/framing/prints etc?

Yes, we have a huge range of luxury storybook albums and a great supply of framing and printing options. Your photographs are also uploaded to an online password protected gallery where you and your family and friends can go buy prints and framing options.
