Where are you based?
We’re based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Technically, just outside of Belfast but we travel all over Ireland, Europe and internationally shooting weddings.
Oh, so you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! We love to travel and are always on the road. Check in with our travel schedule or get in touch for specific dates. Travel within a 100 mile radius of Belfast is included and outside of this there is a minimum mileage rate and any accommodation/flights if required. We always do our best to keep these costs to a minimum.
How long do you stay at our wedding?
Depending on which level of coverage you’ve chosen, I’m with you all day from the morning prep through to the evening speeches and dance floor mayhem. I couldn’t miss your favourite in-law pulling some serious shapes!
Have you shot at our venue before?
There’s nothing more that I love to do than explore new places and that goes for venues too. Shooting internationally, I’m always coming across exciting new locations and with that comes a chance to create something different. I find that it helps kick my creativity into overdrive. Rather than relying on the same spots or locations of a venue I’m looking at everything, the light, the location, the surroundings with a fresh pair of eyes and I’ve found this to be invaluable when it comes to capturing the intricacies of your day.
Are you insured?
Yes, I have both Public Liability & Public Indemnity Insurance and all my equipment is insured.
Do you work alone?
I am the solo shooter of Chris Copeland Photography (genius name I know) but Colleen is the brains and the braun behind the scenes! All the images you see on the website are my own.
Do you need a shot list?
Hell no! Joking, but seriously they simply are not necessary if you trust me. As important as family formals are to lots of our couples we’ve found that if they are kept to a minimum this allows me more time to spend searching for those unscripted moments. The thing about a shot list is, in the end they actually can prevent us from capturing the authentic emotions of the day.
How many photos will we receive?
While there is no limit to the amount of photos I take during the course of your day on average I’ll edit them down to around 500+ images that tell the story of your day from start to finish.
How and when will we receive our photos?
Typically 6-8 weeks after your wedding. When wedding season is in full swing this may be a little longer. But I’ll always give you a rough idea when we’re hugging it out at the end of the night! You’ll receive an online slideshow a few weeks after the wedding to whet you appetite and then the full she-bang! Don’t worry, there’s no naff watermarks!
Can we print our photos?
Of course, you can print away until your hearts content! Or if you prefer to switch off after all the wedding planning we offer albums and some pretty snazzy prints too!
What is your pricing and how do we get started?
If you’re planning a wedding, elopement or destination wedding get in touch via our contact form here and we can send over our pricing info and get the ball rolling. If you’re based locally, we can grab a coffee or if you’re based further afield we can arrange a skype session!
