Frequently asked questions

Wedding

What packages do you offer for weddings?


In my humble opinion, the best way to convey the true nature of any wedding day is to shoot from begining through to the end, which is untill the last dance, not the first one. Full day coverage starts at £1250 which includes Full coverage on your wedding day, a Pre-wedding shoot, approx 400 high-resolution images in your own private online gallery coupled with a beautifully presented USB stick. The pre-wedding shoot is also included in the package, to give us a chance to break the ice and to learn how to get the best from each other. It is a great way to get comfortable in front of a camera, and build a rapport that will shine through the images of your big day. Personalised albums and Canvas prints are avilaible and sold seperately through the online gallery portal. I understand some clients wish for a more bespoke package, including extra days, second shooters etc, and I'm more than happy to discuss indiviudal needs to suit your wedding. Please get in touch her via the contact form or directly at hello@ashswift.com for initial enquiries, I would be honoured to be part of your day.




How would you describe your style?


Hopefully you have already seen some of my images in the gallery, and how I like to present each shot. I love putting a greater focus on candid and reportage shots filled with emotion, but that's not to say I steer clear of tradional posed shots when requested. I always try to be as subtle as possible, engaging with the guests as unobtrusively as possible. I find this allows guests to relax, and not have to worry about a lens being thrust in their face leading to more naturally captured moments. When it comes to editing, I treat every image individually, correcting colour and tone, and creatively making each shot form part of the larger narative. I prefer shooting in natural light, and love to edit in black and white, but I'm also adept at off camera flash, and creatively using this lighting when the sun goes down.




How will I recieve the images of my Wedding day/Lifestyle shoot?


Every client recieves a full set of high-resolution images on a USB, which is usually sent out within 6 weeks of the wedding day, or a much shorter lead time for Lifestyle edits. I do send each couple a sneak peak of some of the images within a week or so, but a fully edited collection will arrive as stated above. I also use a fantastic online gallery, which will be accessible around 4 weeks. Through this gallery clients are able to select their favourite images, and customise their own album using the fantastic Loxley Colour Printing. Prices for this will be found via the gallery.




Are you Insured?


Of course! As a professional photographer, I have public liability and personal indemnity insurance, whilst also having all of my gear insured, so rest easy guys, I've got it all covered. I also have threee camera bodies, a huge selection of prime and zoom len's and multiple flash heads, so should one piece of equipment fail on the day, you won't even know it's happend.




What is the best way to get in touch?


Head to the contact page here, or email me directly on hello@ashswift.com with any enquiries you have. I always make sure to get back to these by the end of the day.




Will you travel across the country or further abroad for weddings


For sure!! I maybe based in Norfolk, but I love traveling across the country to different venues, and happily accomodate clients from further a field. If travelling further than 2hours away from home, I would simply require an AirBnB for the night and travel expenses, which I would arrange, but add to the final invoice at cost.
