I want that photo!!

Have you got an Image Request?

IF YOU HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN A RECENT WEDDING, EITHER AS A GUEST OR VENDOR, KEEP READING

Here’s all you need to know

01.

REQUEST ACCESS TO THE GALLERY IN QUESTION

Gain Access First

Find the wedding in question by going to my “Client Galleries” Section. All recent weddings from approximately the past 12 months will be in there. Once you see the event you are interested in, click that gallery and you can request access from there. This request will be sent directly the the wedding couple to either approve or refuse access as they see fit. It is entirely at the discretion of the couple to allow access to their galleries.

You can find the “Client Galleries” section by clicking HERE or else by clicking the link below.

ONCE ACCESS IS GRANTED

PRODUCING THE IMAGE

Once the wedding couple have granted you access, you can browse all the images in the gallery. Once you see the image or images you want, you can obtain them in one of several ways.

Digital Downloads are free to download and are available as low resolution images only. This is suitable for social media sharing and computer viewing but is never ever suitable for printing. It will look terrible. Don’t print a low resolution image, they are NOT designed for this. Please ensure you have the permission of anyone featured in the image before you share it on any public forum.

Low Resolution Images, suitable for Social Media sharing, are free to download

High Resolution Images, required for printing, or prints themselves, are available to purchase.

I AM A VENDOR AND WANT TO USE THE IMAGE FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES

GOING LIVE

If you are a Wedding Vendor and wish to download an image for commercial purposes, please feel free to download Low Resolution Images for sharing on social media in the same way as guests do; they are free! Please, have them with my blessing if you think they are helpful to your business. However, please 1) Tag me in the image and underneath in the comments 2) Do not crop, edit or apply filters to the image. It is always nice to do this as a small gesture of goodwill.

If you want any images for printing purposes, such as billboards, flyers, posters, magazine features or brochures etc, please contact me directly for further details as this will incur a bit more admin.

THE IMAGE I SEEK IS FROM AN EVENT MORE THAN 12 MONTHS IN THE PAST

Historical events

If you are interested in obtaining images from an event more than 12 months from the date of this event, please contact the couple directly. I do not hold on to images for more than 12 months past the date of the Wedding/Event.

In the rare event that you are former clients who want to re-establish an old online gallery that is over 12 months old, this is sometimes, though not always, possible. A fee will be required to re-establish all older galleries, if it is even possible. It is the clients responsibility to properly store, look after their images and make their own back ups once they have been delivered to the couple. If you find yourself in this scenario, whereby you have lost your images, please contact me to see if it is possible to re-establish your old online gallery.

Although there can be no guarantee of this, it is worth checking.

DID YOU KNOW I MAKE ZERO PROFIT FROM PRINT AND DOWNLOAD SALES?

In 2020 I made the decision to turn my gallery sales into a not-for-profit enterprise.

This means that for every print ordered, every album, every physical product sale or high resolution download ordered from my galleries, make absolutely nothing in profit for me. All profit margins are donated to local charities every year at Christmas time.

In 2022, £928 was raised and donated to two charities!!

Please consider using this option, for example, if you are a business seeking commercial images for printing. It is very disheartening to see image copyright being infringed through backhanded illegal obtaining of images.

Professional Images have value. Every one is taken with extremely expensive equipment and edited with time, effort, care.

That has value.

Do the right thing. Keep the good Karma going!
