Wedding Photography FAQ’S

I’ve done my best to answer the most common questions I get below. With that said, every wedding is unique and every bride and groom have different needs and expectations. If you have any questions that I haven’t answered, drop me an email and I will get back to you ASAP. If it’s pricing you want to know, click on the contact & pricing page and fill out my super short questionaire.

How long are you going stay on our wedding day?


I want to tell the complete story of your day. That often means getting there super early for morning preparations and staying until late. I don’t put a limit on my time and as long as there’s still a story to be told, I will be photographing the hard-core dancers late in to the evening.


Do you offer a second photographer?


Yes, I work closely with a select few Midlands based photographers that I 100% trust and that produce work in the same style and quality comparable to my own. I edit all the images from the day so they will all have the J S Coates Photography magic applied. Second shooters are an optional extra.


How many images will I receive?


Whilst I don’t put a limit on what you will receive, it seems on average I delivery (on average) between 400 and 700 images from a wedding. These are the best images that tell the story and really showcase your day.


After the wedding, how long is it until we see our images?


I aim to deliver your images within four weeks of your big day. Each image is edited to my highest standards and you will first receive a highlight reel Slideshow of the day. A few days later I send you the link to your online gallery where you can view, download and share your images.


Can I buy Prints or Albums?


Directly from your online gallery you can order professional-grade prints. I also offer printed wedding albums as an extra and they look AMAZING. You also get a print release with your images so you can get them printed wherever you like.


How Can I Book You & How Far Will You Travel?


Click on the ‘Contact & Pricing’ page and fill in the enquiry form. I will send you my wedding brochure with everything you need to know.

I travel the whole country shooting weddings and also shot in the USA and in Europe.
