Wedding FAQs

This should cover it.. but because every photo shoot is different and personal, if you can't find exactly what you are looking for, just get in touch.

What is a good timeline to schedule engagement photos before the wedding?

For engagement photos, I usually recommend as soon as possible, to capture the newness and excitement of this special time. Some of my couples even use their engagement photographs in a book for guests to sign at the wedding.

Is there a contract?

Yes. As with the deposit, your date is not booked until I receive a signed contract.

How many photos will I get?

This depends on the wedding package you choose. Generally speaking, your gallery will have 300-400 images!

How long until our photos are ready?

Eight to ten weeks, approximately. During this time, I'm busy editing your photographs, ensuring the quality, as well as the layout, allow the story of your day to shine through.

Do you require a deposit for weddings?

At booking, a non-refundable security deposit of €400 is required. It can be paid by bank transfer or cheque. I can't hold dates without the fee. The remaining balance is due on or before the date of the wedding.

What time do you finish?

In my standard Wedding Package, coverage is based around a seven to eight hour day. On a normal day, photography is covered up until the meal is called. If you choose to hire me for extended coverage, I can photograph your first dance.

If you have specific requirements, please contact me and let’s discuss how I can help.

When we meet up, I can show you examples of my work and sample albums from previous weddings, with no obligation to book me.

Do you travel for weddings? Do you do destination weddings?

Yes. I am based in Dublin, and my Wedding Package includes travel costs within 20 miles of Dublin. I often work in venues across the country and am happy to travel abroad if required. If you would like to book me for your destination wedding, we can chat about your plans and agree on suitable travel and accommodation costs separately, if required.

Do you photograph engagements?

First of all, congratulations! Engagement shoots are a lovely way to document this exciting time, and make a great opportunity to build a relationship with your photographer before the wedding.

An engagement shoot can be especially useful for anyone who’s camera-shy because it’s great preparation for the big day. (And I have plenty of hints and tips for posing and dealing with nerves!)

General FAQs

Do you shoot in black & white or colour?

I shoot in colour which I then edit myself. Then, I look at each image as an individual frame and choose the most appropriate treatment to get the best from it - be it black & white or full colour. 

I'm always open to discussing this, as some people have a distinct preference and I'm happy to advise you. Generally, I make the decision in the editing process, as this is when I can see what works best.

Are you insured?

Yes. I have professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance.

Pricing and booking

What is included in the cost?

This can vary slightly depending on the package you select. However, as a general rule, the cost covers the time in the studio with an award-winning photographer and the time for editing.

After the session, I carefully select the finest images from the number I take during the shoot.

It’s a little-known fact that the editing can take more time than the photo session as I have to carefully edit each image, balancing the colour and cropping etc.

Once the images from your session are ready for viewing, I invite you back into the studio to take a look.

Photography session fees, products and services are subject to change at any time at my discretion.

How do I book with MOS Photography?

Firstly, phone or send an email to check the availability of your wedding date.

I encourage every couple to contact me to arrange a time to chat – in fact, I advise you do this with any wedding photographer you’re considering because it’s such an important decision.

How can I get MOS Photography’s packages or pricing?

For the latest packages, prices and availability, please contact me. I have a number of Wedding Packages. After we discuss what would suit you best and you choose a package, all details will be specified in the contract. For weddings, a non refundable deposit is required to confirm all bookings. For newborn, children, and all portrait photography, the complete fee must be paid in full at the time of booking. This guarantees your time in the studio.
