I'M SO EXCITED YOU'RE HERE
AS YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER, I DON'T JUST AIM TO CAPTURE YOUR DAY. I AIM TO GIVE YOU AN EXPERIENCE. FROM THE PRE-WEDDING SESSION RIGHT THROUGH TO YOUR WEDDING DAY. BY THE END OF THE WHOLE THING, WE WILL BE FRIENDS FOR LIFE AND I WILL DO EVERYTHING I CAN TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE BEST DAY EVER.
If your wedding date is available, you love my work, and we’re a fit just pay your deposit and the dates yours! My calendar books up to 2 years in advance, so send me a note and see if your date is available.

JUST WANT TO CHECK DATE AVAILABILITY OR HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT PACKAGES? THEN FEEL FREE TO SEND AN EMAIL TO CARLAANNEPHOTOGRAPHY@GMAIL.COM.
IF YOU SEND AN EMAIL AND HAVE NOT HEARD FROM ME WITHIN 48 HOURS, PLEASE CHASE ME UP.
Can we meet you before we book you?
Unfortunately, due to the volume of enquiries I receive, I’m only able to do consultations with couples who book with me. Once you’ve booked, I’ll be more than happy to Skype/meet in South Wales to discuss your big day.
What is your turnaround time for edits?
I know how excited you’ll be to see your photos after your wedding. I always make sure to edit 5-10 previews as soon as I can so that you’ve got something to share with friends and family straight away. Typically the bulk of your photographs will be ready within 4 weeks but during busier months this might be 6 weeks. Once the shots are fully edited, I’ll send you an online gallery for you to look through at home. You then get to select your favourites, which I will get printed for you.
Can we have the RAW files?
No, I'm afraid as a rule they're not something I make available to my clients. It's quite standard in the photography industry and there's a good reason for it! To begin with, simply to view them requires specialised software such as Photoshop or Lightroom, programmes which are expensive and so usually only owned by professional photographers. This means to the majority of my clients they are completely inaccessible.
I put a lot of love into the editing processing to make images look the way they are. This isn't what they look like coming out of the camera.
Where are you based? Do you travel?
Yes, to the ends of the earth! I am based in Aberdare (South Wales) but travel globally to capture weddings. I have a valid passport and love travelling to exciting destinations. If you're getting married abroad, get in touch for a personalised quote. PLEASE help me complete my bucket list!!
How does payment work?
To secure your wedding date a deposit of £500 is required and the remaining balance 28 days before your wedding.
How soon do we need to book you?
I get booked up as far as 2 years in advance and only take on a select number of weddings per year. It makes me so sad when couples fall in love with my work, only to find out I'm already booked for their date. As soon as you have a venue and a date, please get in touch to check my availability!
Do I have to feed you?
Yes please! Weddings are very long days for us photographers. If I were to leave your wedding in search of food, I could be gone for up to an hour and might miss something. A fed photographer is a happy photographer.
How many images do you include?
I don't have a fixed number but typically a wedding gallery can be anything from 600 images to 800. This all varies on a combination of things, number of locations, amount of guests, length of coverage, lighting etc.
Can we have a second shooter?
Of course if you would like additional coverage (e.g. to capture the groom’s prep or if you have a larger wedding), an experienced second shooter is £350 for the day and all of these photos I will edit in my signature style.
