We love capturing your story in intimate, relaxed settings and try to use natural lighting as often as possible. Our style is natural, fun and editorial and sessions are candid and fun!



Q: What makes your work different from other photographers & film-makers?

QUESTIONS 

your

You’ll get a gallery to view and share images and you can add downloads of the hi-res digital negatives with a full copyright release for £350.



Q: Will we get the copyright to our photos after our wedding?

Each of our collections always include a second shooter. If you opt for an all-inclusive collection of photography, film and photo booth you’ll have a team of five looking after you on the day.


Q: How many photographers and/or film-makers will be there at our wedding?

Although many of our sessions do get featured, this is not something that is guaranteed. Most publishers are interested in colorful, uniquely designed weddings!

Q: Will we get featured in a magazine or blog?

We've been blessed to shoot weddings around the world, from Mexico to Australia and all around Europe. Get in touch for a custom quote for destination weddings and elopements.

Q: DO YOU TRAVEL?

As a guide you should budget 10% for photography and 10% for video. So if your wedding budget is £20,000 set aside £2,000 for your photography, if your wedding budget is £50,000, set aside £5,000 for your photos.

Q: How much should we budget for photography and film?

Send us an email at hello@donaldoherty.com or fill out our contact form to check availability for your wedding date. If we have the date free (Yay!), a £300 non-refundable booking fee for photography or film or £500 if booking both and completed contract is required in order to get your wedding day on the calendar. The Photo Booth can be booked for £100 so £600 if booking all three services. One month prior to your wedding, the remainder of the balance is due.

Q: HOW DO WE RESERVE OUR DATE?

Yes, we have professional indemnity and public liability insurance.

We use all of the latest Canon equipment for photography. For video we shoot with the incredible Sony A7S II. We have backups for everything in the rare event that anything should occur to one of our cameras or lenses on a wedding day.

Q: WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

Q: CAN I BOOK PHOTOGRAPHY, VIDEO OR ROXBURY BOOTH ON ITS OWN?

Yes, you can choose individual services or combine them into a bespoke collection. 



Q: HOW LONG DO YOU STAY FOR ON THE WEDDING DAY?

Typically we provide 10 – 14 hours coverage on the day which depends on your timings. We arrive 2 1/2 hours before the service to cover bridal prep and stay until shortly after the first dance.



A lot of couples prefer to chat on the phone, especially as time is precious the week before the wedding. We can also skype and you’re welcome to visit the studio in-person if you prefer.

Q: DO WE MEET BEFORE THE WEDDING?

It is valuable and not only helps you get comfortable in front of the camera, but we get to know one another and you get some beautiful photos of you both which is a bonus.



Q: SHOULD WE DO AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?

We charge a small session fee of £75 which includes the time and travel for the shoot. You’ll also receive your favourite image from the session as a digital negative and you can order prints or purchase the gallery to download all of the images for £200.



Q: WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?

We can provide an online gallery to choose your images from at home. Couples who choose at home tell us that narrowing down the images is one of the hardest things they’ve ever done. It’s strongly advised to choose as soon as you can so we can get your album to you.



Q: I LIVE AWAY AND CAN"T ATTEND A VIEWING, CAN I CHOOSE MY ALBUM IMAGES ONLINE?

We’re passionate about print and want you to have an heirloom to cherish and to pass onto future generations. Being able to hold an album in your hands of the best day of your life is a beautiful experience. With that said, we're here to help so reach out if you'd prefer not to have an album.

Q: DO ALL YOUR PHOTOgraphy collections come with an album?

Q: Are you insured?

We license music for your wedding films to fit the theme of the day. If there’s a genre you love, please let us know and we’ll try and match that to your video.

Q: do we choose the music for our wedding film?

The first 55 images are included in your wedding album, this is across 40 pages in our storybook albums and 20 in our duo matted Queensberry albums. Additional images are £15 each in storybooks and £20 in Queensberry albums. For every 2/3 images we add a couple of pages to your book. We work our butts off on your wedding day to make it really hard for you to narrow your images down as you'll love them all! It's the best problem in the world! Typically people go for 80 - 120 images in their final album and some people order additional albums and copies of their main album.

Q: HOW MANY IMAGES/PAGES ARE IN OUR ALBUM?

Typically your images will be ready in four weeks with wedding films taking six to eight weeks.

Q: WHEN WILL MY PHOTOS AND FILM BE READY?

You'll attend a viewing at the studio in Ebrington Square where you'll view your images for the first time. You guys are in charge as you choose your album images and I'm there to help. You'll also choose your wedding album options and you can add on any extras you'd like. This viewing can take 3-5 hours depending on how decisive you are :) 

Q: HOW DO I CHOOSE MY ALBUM IMAGES?

Our wedding films are cinematic. We use techniques from the movies to create dynamic wedding films, shot and edited with care to provide an impact. If you're looking for a 2-3 hour traditional video, we're not the right fit for you. If you're looking for a wedding film which looks spectacular, has story at the heart, and which is edited to cool music with beautiful cinematography we're the perfect match.

Q: IS THE FILM TRADITIONAL OR CINEMATIC?

We include drone footage in our films if it matches the story of the day and if weather permits. 

Q: Will our FILM include drone footage?

It saves you so much time as you're dealing with one great team. Communication is streamlined, you only have to do one pre-wedding chat and deal with one invoice among other things. Feedback from couples is that it makes life and the planning process so much easier! As we're one team we're all working towards one goal, to create an amazing product and experience for you. We know how each other works on the day and know how to collaborate to create something which is not only cohesive, but more than the sum of its parts.
