Everything we do before and at your wedding is either to make the day run smoothly or to tell your story in the best way possible.
We genuinely get excited when someone approaches us and says, "I don't really like posed photos", or, "It's not your usual wedding". You see, we don't have a usual set of photos either. Our portfolio above features a few traditional wedding photos, just to show we take formal-ish photos if you want them. The rest of them though, are more like it!
If you're planning to arrive by boat, fire cannons, or there's a slight chance your best man will try and fail to jump over a pond, then please just book us right now.
Below we've tried to put together all the wedding photography information people usually ask for. It's a pretty big decision you're making, so we want to be able to answer every question you have. However, some people have no questions, as this is all very new to them. If that's you, hopefully by the time you get to the bottom of this page you'll know a lot more about what us photographers get up to on a wedding day - and for the weeks after!
Although our photography studio is in Hull, East Yorkshire, we happily travel with our Photo Booth all over the country and on occasion, out of the country. Our favourite venues are tipis, barns, woods, farms; anywhere that allows you to put your personal touch on the day!
So glad we had these guys photograph our wedding! So professional yet we felt like they were our guests, so easy going, friendly and fun
Great people producing outstanding pictures - both formal and informal - which was everything we could have asked for and more
We had so much fun both on our engagement shoot and at our wedding and this was due to Tom and Ant's professionalism and fab personalities
Thanks for our amazing wedding photos - so many smiles. Exactly what we wanted. Highly recommended!
Extremely personable, approachable. You really put us at ease. Plus the photos are stunning!
Super friendly and unobtrusive photographers. They blended in as if they were one of the guests themselves
The perfect opportunity to get to know each other, and get some photos before the wedding.
We'll meet up & discuss your running order and group photos, ensuring your day runs smoothly.
From preparations until 9:30pm, we'll tell each part of the story of your day.
A photographer each for your preparations, then we work together to make your day run smoothly.
Included in the package so your guests can leave their own lovely or horrendous photos.
You always hear the story of that person who waited six months for their photos. Not something we think is acceptable!
Visit our studio to see your photos for the first time. Spend time designing your perfect album, and request any Photoshop work.
Your photographs set to your own choice of music, delivered on USB and either Blu-ray or DVD. Posted to you after Photoshop changes.
A password protected gallery gives family & friends a hassle-free way to download photos or order their own products from your collection.
The most timeless way to share your day. You get the final say in the design. Fourteen page 12x8" included, with larger options available.
Make prints for yourselves, family and friends. Full-size digital copies are included on USB.
Not the most asked about part of our package, but your photos are encrypted and stored in three countries for at least a year after your wedding.
As you've probably gathered by now, we make sure everything needed to tell the story of your day is included. Remove any one part of our wedding package and we don't feel the end result would be as well crafted. It's all in there to make your day run smoothly, and your album look its best!
If you think we could be the photographers you've been looking for and would like to know more, please tell us your wedding date either below, or by emailing Hello@fossca.co.uk. There are still a handful of 2019 dates available, however 2020 is booking up quickly so don't wait too long to ask the question.
If you're not ready to get in touch just yet, would you like some advice on weddings? Here's a link to our 'This Is What Makes a Brilliant Wedding!' series. We've been to our fair share of weddings and have kept notes of what works. Hope it helps you!
We're more than happy to shoot a wedding anywhere in the country, or indeed the world. Our package and coverage remain the same. We will let you know any travel and accommodation costs before you book.
There are photos in our portfolio from France, Wales, Somerset, The Lake District, Oxford, Morecambe, Sheffield, to give you an idea. We end up travelling all over, thanks to our lovely couples!
Yes, we have full professional indemnity and public liability insurance. Certificates can be provided if required by your venue.
Firstly, thank you for showing your interest in this normally neglected question!
You'll be happy to hear that your photos are downloaded and encrypted at the studio to our custom built server, designed to keep your photos as safe as possible. Once there, they are sent fully encrypted to two other servers (also encrypted), in two other countries.
We guarantee to keep these backups for at least a year after your wedding.
We understand how important your photos are!
Very few people are! We've had some people, who are absolute naturals in front of the camera. A few, in many years!
Most people's dreaded part of the day is their official portraits (or the speeches, but we can't help with that). However, if you ask our couples, this part of the day is usually far more enjoyable than expected.
Our posing is minimal. We're not looking for millimetre placement of your hands etc. We'd much rather capture a pose that's 99% there, but is quick and feels natural to you. The best pose in the world will look awful if you are bored out of your minds!
Also, think about it this way. The first time you will see each other on the day is at the ceremony, not the best time to have a chat. You'll then be mobbed by well-wishers afterwards and perhaps go straight into group photos, depending on your running order. Your portraits are likely to be the first time you'll get a quiet moment to take it all in and chat between you - admittedly with us pointing cameras at you - but the point is, it won't be as bad as you think.
Worry about your first dance instead!
Unfortunately, we can't. We can only take on a certain number of weddings a year, so whilst we don't force you to take everything included in the package, such as an engagement shoot or the Photo Booth, we can't offer a discount.
The engagement shoot is a great opportunity to get that first bit of awkwardness out of the way before your big day though! You also get a lovely set of portraits to enjoy before your wedding.
Check out our Having an Engagement Shoot? Work it! blog post.
Any time before your wedding. If you're thinking of using the photos for stationary, give us a couple of weeks to turn them around and order any products.
As for location, anywhere in the local area that has a bit of shade and some shelter, just in case the English weather finds us. The Humber Bridge Country Park is a perfect example. There are hundreds of different places for any kind of sun/weather combo.
Check out our Choosing a Location for your Engagement Shoot blog post.
We provide chalk and chalkboards, but you are more than welcome to provide additional props to suit your wedding. Just be aware that the more props you have, the fewer messages people will write!
Sorry no, the Photo Booth is packed up when we leave at 9:30pm. But we won't pack it up if people are still queuing to have a go, we're not mean! We also make sure to ask the DJ or Band to announce that the Photo Booth is going half an hour before, just to make sure!
Yes, please. We're going to be on our feet for the whole day, and our only break is when you sit down to eat. We don't have time to leave your wedding and find food elsewhere, as there are speeches to photograph and a Photo Booth to set up!
We will require a full meal, please make sure your caterers don't just give us a plate of sandwiches - we may collapse in the evening!
We will sit elsewhere to eat though, nothing like a photographer at your guests' table to make them feel like they're being watched!
We aim to have your photos ready in about four weeks. Enough time for you to enjoy your honeymoon and relax a bit after all the time and effort you've put into the day!
We'll then ask you for some songs for your slideshow. Once everything is ready, it's time for you to come to the studio and relive the memories!
After watching your slideshow, you'll have as much time as you need to work on your album design with us. We will then perform any Photoshop changes you have requested, before posting your slideshow and digital copies to you.
Then it's up to you to decide at home which album size you would like, and if you'd like to add any Parent Books or Pocket Books to your order.
No, we're pretty flat out just taking the photos! We're happy to work alongside most videographers though. However, we've had some interesting experiences over the years so make sure you choose someone who isn't going to intrude on your day.
We work pretty hard to stay in the background at your wedding, and that's all for nothing if the videographers yell at your guests!
We're happy to recommend some, so just ask!
These are our favourite nearby venues, and some further afield - in alphabetical order, no favouritism here!
