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. I love to take advantage of the natural light and changing seasons and use some of the stunning sceneries we have on our doorstep. Through these photographs, I get to celebrate every individual, couple, family or brand I meet through their very own and unique story. If you love my signature photography and editing style and are thinking of book me, keep on reading!

 

Where are you based?

I’m based in Milton Keynes, 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 can also take photos in your home which is wonderful if you have a newborn baby. Find out more about me and where I work over here.

 

Where do your outdoor shoots take place?

Part of my job is going location scouting all over Milton Keynes on my bicycle so that I can offer the best settings to my clients. Keep in mind that it’s all based on the seasonality, so you can’t expect to shoot in my secret poppy field in winter for example! I’ll give you options of locations with examples of work shot in these locations. I’ve listed 5 reasons why outdoor lifestyle photo sessions are a great idea in a recent post.

 

I don’t know what to wear on our shoot, can you help me?

Once you book me, you’ll receive a complimentary ‘What to Wear guide’ and I will provide styling assistance during the pre-shoot consultation phase of the booking. 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 and accessories that I’ve selected to enhance my style of photography. The most frequently asked question I get from my clients is “What should I wear?”, and my understanding is that dealing with the styling process when finding something to wear for your scheduled photography session is a massive source of stress. Creating a client closet has been on my mind for quite some time as I want to make your Constance Doyle Photography experience as hassle-free and amazing as possible!

How do I book you?

I assume that you’ve check out my work, who I am and read what past clients have said about me. You 100% love my photography and editing style (yay!) and want to book me. That’s great news! Let’s create some memories. Now what happens next? Fill out my contact form 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 a day or two. Please tell me as much as you can, it really helps me get to know you as well as get the conversation started.

Please feel free to ask questions at any point. Once you have decided that you want to go ahead with the booking, let me know and I’ll send a booking agreement and invoice via email. A booking fee of 25% for weddings is payable to secure your date. For all other shoots, I require a 50% deposit upon booking. The remainder of the balance is paid on or before the photoshoot. 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.

 

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.

 

When and how do I get the photos?

For a headshot, couples or family session, you’ll get the high resolution and edited digital images within 2 weeks via a password protected online gallery, which you’ll be able to share the gallery with friends and family.
