"The photos are just spectacular and anyone who has seen them is blown away by them.
Choosing Emma as our photographer was by far one of the best decisions we made. When we first met her, she made us feel so relaxed. It was like meeting a friend. She is such an amazing person and gifted photographer.
The whole process before the big day was so easy, as Emma is very organised and you can put your full trust in her.
On the day of the wedding, she made everyone feel so relaxed and was such a fantastic energy... within seconds we had forgotten she was there.\"
She is on hand to help out too, like when I was trying to get into my dress. She captured beautiful moments throughout the ceremony that will be treasured forever.
For the formal photos she was able to organise everyone to get the shots needed without much hanging around and made everyone feel so comfortable in front of the camera.
So many people throughout the day said how lovely she was. She is soooo much fun to be around and it is clear she loves her work.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Is there a deposit and how can I book?
To book me there is a contract we both sign and a deposit to pay of approximately 25% of total cost.
Once the date is booked, I send out a booking/timeline questionnaire. This gives me all the information I will need to work out a timeline for your day to help with the day’s running order.
What happens on the day itself?
Before the day arrives, we will have chatted through the timeline for the day, so you will know when and where to expect me, and vice versa.
I like the morning preparation to be purely documentary. This enables you to relax, enjoy your morning with all your girls or guys, without having to worry about me getting in the way or posing you. The more you ignore me the better the photos!
Im nervous about getting my photo taken and hate posing, help!
I hear you, I feel the same. When Im there Ill help you feel comfortable and itll be easy and fun. At the end of the day it’s less about posing, more about enjoying your day together with all your favourite people.
How much does it cost to hire you as my wedding photographer?
As every wedding is different and unique, prices can vary depending on the number of guests, location, etc. Please drop me an email via the button below or my contact page and I’ll send on my wedding brochure, which includes costs, extras, and album details.
Do we get to meet you before the day?
I love to meet couples before the day, ideally an engagement shoot is a great way to break the ice and help you both feel comfortable in front of the camera. However, I’m not asking you to book me for anything extra. Normally, we meet at my home or at your venue or at a convenient location or video call.
What is your style and approach?
My approach is mainly documentary, which means I don’t want you to feel pressured to perform. Documentary is about observing and capturing, but at some pre-arranged points of the day, I will gently and efficiently direct you and your loved ones into composed family photos.
Do you take the family photographs?
Yes, before the day, we will have talked about exactly what you want to get with your photographs. I normally recommend a maximum of eight group photographs as gathering people takes precious time away from your guests.
How long do you store the photos for?
I guarantee six months back-up on my system, so I highly recommend couples to back up their photos as many times as possible as well as print them.
Where are you based?
I am based between wonderful West Cork in Ireland and the stunning West Coast of the Algarve, both of which I know very well, but I also travel, so if I’m not where you want me to be, I can be.
Do I pay extra if I hire you to travel to a foreign location?
Yes, you pay for my transportation costs, visas, and accommodation on either side of the event. I am fully insured to shoot your special event in any location worldwide.
Is this your main job?
Yes. I have been a full-time professional photographer since 2003. I started my career with Press 22 in Limerick City, one of Ireland's premier photography agencies. I moved to West Cork in 2013 where I set up Emma Jervis Photography.
Can I get an album from you?
Yes, I’m a proud supplier of Queensberry albums. (www.queensberry.com)
When can I expect my photos?
You can expect your photos four – six weeks after your wedding day, depending on time of year. They will be delivered on a USB in a USB presentation box, and on a personal online gallery with downloadable link.
Are you insured?
I have fully comprehensive public liability & indemnity insurance, required by most hotels and resorts.
What happens if you can’t shoot my wedding?
I guarantee I will find a replacement photographer of equal or better standard than myself to photograph your wedding. You never have to worry about this. If my replacement is not satisfactory, you have full money back guarantee.
