Steve & Tania Photography | FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions


What areas do you cover?

We're based in Haywards Heath, Sussex, Surrey, Kent and anywhere in the South East of England. However, we do travel all over the UK which may incur a small fee to cover our costs.

Do we need two photographers?

This is a personal preference but because there are two of us we can be in two places at once; we can be with both the bride and the groom as they are getting ready or we can follow the bride from her room or car to the altar while the other captures the groom nervously waiting. We will also shoot key moments, such as the kiss or exchange of rings, from two vantage points and of course we have twice as much chance of spotting those wonderful incidental moments that truly reflect your day!

Are you Insured?

Yes. We have professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

What equipment do you use?

We use Canon 5D Mark III & Mark IV cameras and professional Canon lenses (L Series for those that know their stuff!). We also use Canon Radio Speedlight Flashes and various other equipment as needed on the day. We have backup camera bodies, and so along with two photographers we've pretty much got everything covered!

How long should I allow for group shots?

We discuss all of this with you at our pre-wedding meetings and email exchanges. We aim to make the group shots as relaxed and informal as possible. These photos can take anywhere from 3-10 minutes each depending on numbers and age ranges. We may ask for someone in your party to help organise the groupings since this makes life easier as they will know everyone on your list.

Do you do couple shots?

Yes, we really love this bit! This is 'you' time and we find that our couples really appreciate just taking time out from the party to focus on each other. We like to use our long telephoto lenses at this point and 'hang back' - giving you some privacy and allowing us to capture those candid and intimate moments. We may also pose some shots just to ensure that we get you looking your best! 

The best time for these shots is just before sunset. However, if this does not fit in with your schedule that's fine, we always try to get two slots with you if time allows, one just after your group shots and one early evening. Please allow at least 20 minutes for your couple shots.

When will we get our photographs?

We may send a few teaser photos via our Facebook page a few days after your wedding day. The rest of your images will be with you in around three to four weeks.

Can you help with an album?

Yes! We are very keen that our wedding couples get to see their photos in print! There's nothing quite like a beautiful wedding album that you can feel and hold and share with your family and friends from time to time. We have a selection of exquisite albums included in our album packages. Once you have chosen your favourite photos, we will arrange them into an album for your approval before sending to print.

Any other questions? Please send us an email and we'd be happy to answer your questions.
