I'm happy to go ahead and book, what do I do next?
What type of training/experience have you?

I have photographed and videoed over 1000 weddings over the past 25 years.
I did my formal training at Bournville College Of Art in Birmingham.
Hold an Oxford Board qualification in photography.
Served my time under Terry Walsh, a seniorcameraman/ producer for the
BBC, in Moseley, Birmingham.
I moved to Ireland in 1999 and have been working here in Ireland filming
weddings ever since.
Is there a travel fee if my wedding is far away?
.
For 95% of  weddings there is no travel charge.
But if your ceremony location and then on to reception location, adds up to
more 100km from Loughrea, then travel is charged for at 1 per km, this fee
covers my return journey also, you pay for one way only.
( This still leaves the price very reasonable)
Dont assume that all videographers are all the same.
Here are afew questions to ask.

Experience...What year did you start filming weddings = 1984

How long have you been trading as a wedding videographer from your present
                                                                                    premises = 16 years

Are you professionally qualified or did you just pick it up as you went along
                                                                  = Oxford Board, Photography

Will you be relaxed and confident at my wedding, do you know how to use your
gear without looking at it and will you know what's going to happen instinctively
Experience, how many weddings have you attended professionally = 1000+


What precautions do you take in case of equipment failure on the day,
what type of backup camera do you carry with you in case
your main camera breaks down is it a lesser quality than your main camera
                                                                              = It's a Sony EX also

Do you keep a second car taxed and insured in case your main car shows signs of possible problems in the days leading up to a wedding = yes

Do you treat the sound recording with the same level of importance as the video, by using radio mikes and quality senheisser microphones = yes

Have you  been assessed by a professional organization and have you been accepted as a member of that organization at member level or at a higher level
Yes Master Photographers Association, Licenciate Level
FILMING AT THE BRIDES HOUSE
There is no extra charge for this and I am happy to include this for
you, if it is practical, if your house is within a short distance from
church..
Some brides want filming at the house, some brides don't, and want
this to be their own private time before the wedding with only the
photographer present.
I can film at the house as long as I can get away in time to be at the
church, and film the guests and the groomsmen arriving, and all of
the pre-wedding fun that you would otherwise not see!
What's Your Style, Cinematic Or Documentary?

My style is documentary, and most couples realise that it is documentary that they want after reading this......
