What is your photography style?
My documentary approach to photography means that I create visually striking, authentic, and emotive lifestyle photographs outdoors or in your own home in my signature natural and unobstructive style.
Where are you based? Do you travel?
I’m based in Buckinghamshire and I’m happy to travel wherever the job takes me – I was even flown to Malaysia to shoot a wedding! If you are based in Buckinghamshire too, I have scouted beautiful spots around the area and would love to take you there. I’ll give you options of locations with examples of work shot in these locations. I can also take photos in your home which is wonderful if you have a newborn baby or would rather stick to a personable setting. If you are based outside of Buckinghamshire, a reasonable travel fee will be assessed.
I don’t know what to wear on our shoot, can you help me?
The most frequently asked question I get from my clients is “What should I wear?”. Dealing with the styling process when finding something to wear for your scheduled photography session is a massive source of stress, which I want to reduce as much as possible for my lovely clients. That is why I have written a ‘What to Wear guide‘ that you can read over at any time, and I also provide styling assistance during the pre-shoot consultation phase of the booking should you need help.
I also have a client closet which you’re free to borrow pieces from. A client closet consists of a carefully curated collection of beautiful dresses, accessories and props that I’ve selected to enhance my style of photography. I created my client closet purely to make your Constance Doyle Photography experience as hassle-free and smooth as possible!
How do I book you?
I assume that you’ve check out my work, who I am and read some of the +100 five-star testimonials past clients have said about me. You 100% love my photography and editing style, and want to book me.
That’s great news! Let’s create some memories. Now what happens next?
Pop over to my contact page to get things started and let’s talk. Tell me as much as you can about you and what you want me to capture – and when/ where if there’s a specific date. I’ll be in touch within 48 hours.
Please feel free to ask questions at any point.
Once you have decided that you want to go ahead with the booking and we have both confirmed the shoot date, I’ll send a contract and invoice via email. I require a 50% booking fee upon booking to secure the date (25% for my full day wedding coverage package). The remainder of the balance is paid by or on the day of the photoshoot.
I book slots on a first come first served basis and unfortunately can’t hold dates as I have a substantial amount of enquiries coming through on a weekly basis.
Once you’ve booked me, you have me!
When should I book you?
I’d advise to book early or as soon as possible. If you have a good feeling about me, my work, and my price, then go for it!
When it comes to weddings, I only take a limited number of bookings a year that way my couples have the attention they deserve and can benefit from my signature dedicated personal service. Remember, you only have to pay 25% of the total rate to book, even if its a year or two before your wedding day! If you want to know if I’m available to capture your big day, message me here.
How much do you charge?
This all depends on what kind of photoshoot you are looking for, are you after a headshot session, a family session, a newborn session, a wedding, branding content? Check out my pricing here.
What if my kids don’t cooperate? How can I make the session go smoothly?
I don’t expect kids to “be good” during their session. In fact, if they get to be a little naughty, that will probably get us some genuine smiles and laughter. What you can do is allow your child to be themselves. The kids are in charge! Try not to tell them no or scold them for anything during our time together and your photos will turn out happy and carefree!
When and how do I get the photos?
I may post an image or two on social media to give you a little peek while I’m working on your images. Your gallery will be ready within 3 weeks. If you need to select your favorites, you will get 3 days to review your gallery, and your final images will be delivered within a week from when you make your selections in digital format.
Do you offer gift vouchers?
Yes, I do! A gift voucher for a photoshoot experience makes the most perfect birthday, Christmas, baby shower, graduation, wedding or anniversary gift. If you want to know more about it, I’ve made a blog post detailing everything you need to know about my gift vouchers.
Do you do Christmas minis?
Yes, I do! My Christmas ’20 minis were a massive success in Buckinghamshire and I was fully booked within a few days of announcing the dates! If you’d like to pre-book your slot for my Christmas ’21 minis, contact me now!
