WHAT ARE MEMORIES WORTH?

We understand that you have a big decision ahead and how important it is to choose the right photography & film team.

In an unregulated industry, we hope that you can take confidence in the fact that the big brands trust us. As European Sony Ambassadors and Rotolight Masters of Light we are recognised as some of the “world’s most respected and celebrated photographers and content creators“.

Every shoot with us is unique because we work on location and believe that a collaborative approach always delivers the most beautiful results.  We are not afraid to be challenged, we are happy to travel and with years of experience, we also have complete confidence in our ability to create something unique and beautiful.

Each wedding is a love story that deserves to be shared.

For those of you who want to be able to see and touch your wedding memories you can choose to have high-quality loose prints, mounted prints, print boxes and beautiful frames of your favourite images and we can organise beautiful fine art thank you cards following your wedding day too.

For wedding albums we have chosen to work with Queensberry – their stunning luxury albums are made in New Zealand and are recognised as being the best in the world for wedding photography.

They offer a variety of paper stocks from traditional photographic, to textured fine art and silky smooth matte pages.  There are also lots of beautiful leather cover options from very traditional to gorgeous contemporary metallics.

ASHRIDGE HOUSE

Working with byLumiere was one of the best decisions we made. Their professionalism is second to none and they knew exactly what we wanted from our first meeting with them. Naturally, you’re nervous on your wedding day but they guided us through the whole day and made us feel at ease. They captured some incredible moments with quality pictures and videos & even created some amazing silhouettes and slow-mo videos which we weren’t expecting. They know the house & grounds extremely well so they get all the best angles inside and all the best scenes outside. I’d definitely recommend them and taking the full package including drone footage as the views of Ashridge are truly spectacular

YOUR QUESTIONS

We have provided the answers to the questions that we get asked the most below.  If we haven’t covered what you need to know please get in touch.

How would you describe your style?

Luxury wedding of the bride with little girl There are many, many labels used for wedding photography and films and we describe our signature style as fine art storytelling – which means we work hard to capture natural emotion and human connection in a beautiful and artistic way.    We want to tell the whole story of your day but also provide some beautiful stand alone images and moments that are timeless.  We work alongside other exceptional wedding suppliers and offer luxury and destination wedding films and photography. 

What venues are you preferred suppliers for?

We are prepared suppliers for the following venues:

  • Blenheim Palace
  • The Royal Palaces
  • Ashridge House
  • Bodleian Library
Are you fully insured?

Absolutely – we have professional indemnity insurance along with public liability insurance.  We also carry a full backup of professional equipment.

How much do you direct/pose your clients?

We believe in a collaborative approach and how much we direct varies from shoot to shoot.  We are as comfortable working with shy, self-conscious adults and children as we are with experienced models.  We promise to get the best out of you in a relaxed and effortless way.

Do you have a license for your drone work?

byLumiere has the CAA GVC to fly drones commercially with full insurance.

Do you only work within the UK?

We have worked all over the World and are always happy to travel. As a team of 4 we also only ever require 2 rooms as we are married couples.

What if we are planning a large wedding and need a larger production team?

We have a network of trusted photographers and cinematographers that we have worked with before and can, with sufficient notice, build a team according to the requirements of the brief.

Do we sign a contract?

Yes we have a contract that we will sign copies of via your very own dedicated client portal – the contract has been legally approved by a UK solicitor. 

Should we book an engagement shoot?

Some couples really want to experience what it’s like being in front of my camera before the wedding day.  If you do decide to book a shoot then we suggest we make a plan to do something fun and different.  Location is very important to the final photos so we can chat about the kind of styling you would like.  The imagery is always different to your wedding day and some couples have used their engagement images for wedding stationery, guest books and signing boards.  

Print Res Vs Screen Res?

Why do we give you 2 versions of your wedding images – print and screen resolution?  

Digital images are measured in pixels per inch, or ppi, which is similar to but not quite the same as dpi in printing. Most computer monitor displays are 72 ppi which is very low resolution compared to print.  Most digital images look great on your monitor and 72 ppi images will be a smaller file size and load faster than a 300 ppi image.   So We provide you with the images in screen resolution – perfect for sharing via email and displaying on any screen.

When it comes to printing the dpi refers to the amount of ink printed on paper. The more ink, the higher the resolution. 300 dots per inch is the standard for quality printing.  When we provide your images in high resolution at 300 ppi they will be very large file sizes so should only be used for photographs you want to print.   If you try and print the 72ppi version the print will literally pixelate and look blurry.  

Can you provide prints for the guests?

After the wedding, we will send you a link to a password-protected online gallery that you can share with your guests (or we can create a separate gallery with the images of your choice).  The gallery links directly to an online professional print lab where people can order individual prints that will be delivered directly. 

How do we book you?

We always like to talk with our couples and get to know each other a little – often on Zoom these days. We are interested in your story – how you met, the proposal, the venue, the details. The truth is we love weddings.  If you decide to work with us we ask for a completed and signed contract and a non-refundable booking fee of 20% which can be paid by bank transfer or credit card (with a card transaction fee). Unfortunately, we can’t hold dates without the form and fee because in peak season we often have many enquiries for the same day.  The balance will be due one month before your wedding date. 

Have you covered same sex or multicultural weddings?

Absolutely yes.  As well as a number of same-sex and multicultural weddings we also have experience with Jewish and Asian ceremonies.
