frequently asked questions

about our photography services

General faq

For Headshot Sessions, images are normally provided digitally within 48 hours of selection and payment being cleared.

For weddings, we ask clients to allow up to five weeks, although this is often quicker and also subject to the varied differences between each wedding shoot.

For all of our photography services, we try to keep our clients fully informed every step of the way. 

The first thing we ask is that you get in touch with us. Cancellation fees may apply for cancellation and these are included in our standard terms.

In most cases we try to accommodate alternative options, but understand sometimes this is not always possible.

With every photographic service we offer, you have the right to reprint images whenever you want. However, you may not sell your images for profit or publish your images without the written consent of Leon Britton Photography

Get in touch !  

We’re fully understand that things change, and our preferred option is work with you to find an alternative solution. 

For headshot and portrait sessions, we offer a split pricing structure.

This means that once you have paid your session fee, all that remains is a fee per image. This leaves you in control of how much you spend overall.

We upload your images to a online preview album allowing you to preview and select your images from the comfort of your own home. This means you can take your time and make a non-impulsive, non-pressured decision on the images you want.

Also – if you decide within 12 months that you want to purchase additional images from your original shoot – get in touch. We are able to unlock your preview album for you meaning all you are paying for is the images, and not an additional session fee.

The simple answer is yes!

Being honest – most people are as it not something they tend to do every day.
We will lead you every step of the way with helpful guides and prompts to ensure we get the best out of your photography session.

Wedding faq

No, we do not. We get rid of duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because we often shoot in low lighting, sometimes we take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect shot. We don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so we spend hours doing that at our end. In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some unflattering facial expressions. We might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With our expertise of processing many images each year, we may eliminate ones that we feel are duplicates and only deliver the best ones.

Not at the moment, but we are more than happy to refer you to another professional video service provider if requested.

We have shot at many venues, so there is a good chance that we have. However, if we have not, we will get to the venue early on the day of and be sure to perform a thorough walk-through to scout out the best photography locations. We also do extensive online research prior to your big day!

While Leon Britton’s Wedding Photography is based out of Liverpool UK, we are happy to serve clients all around the world. Our destination wedding photography pricing includes the cost of travel and reasonable accommodations.  All destination pricing is bespoke – please contact us for more information.

Your photographer will usually be Leon. He is often accompanied by either an assistant or secondary photographer where requested. It is not uncommon for us to receive requests for up to three photographers at some of our larger weddings. 

We typically do not provide partial day coverage on weekends. On weekends, we only accept clients that require at least 6 hours of coverage.

For more information please visit our weddings page, and request our pricing brochure.

Yes, we have experience in many fields of photography. Feel free to get in touch.

We have dedicated pages on this site covering headshot, wedding, & portrait photography – why not have a browse. If there’s something you need but can’t fin – please drop us a message.

Yes. These are all considered ‘event photography.’ We have chosen to focus and excel at wedding and event photography, and we would love to cover your celebration.

Full details of our available packages please request our pricing guide – this breaks down ideal times and suggested options, including pricing.

For a variety of reasons, we have to charge for the time in between events. The fact is, we’re never truly resting during the day, whether we’re backing up images, setting up for the second venue, traveling to the second location, taking venue shots, or making up for lost photo time because of unforeseen wedding day delays. In many cases, we use that “downtime” to take you and your significant other out for a photo session or more family portraits.

We understand that not everything goes as planned during a wedding. We never pack up before the contracted time, and moreover, we’re not leaving on the dot when the contracted time is up. Instead, we will ask you at the end of your contracted time whether or not you would like to extend. If you would like us to stay, we will charge the rates specified in your contract rounded to the closest 30-minute increment.

We’ve dedicated the entire day to your wedding, so we won’t be racing off to catch other plans that evening. However, we need to charge for additional coverage primarily because there are costs of having the team stay for additional

Style and Quality faq

The Leon Britton Photography Wedding team is acclaimed for developing a unique style of wedding photography that is deeply rooted in wedding photojournalism while influenced by fine-art and fashion photography. We love using creative lighting, unique perspectives, angles, compositions and artistic post-production refining to bring out our clients personalities and beauty while telling their wedding story. We pride ourselves on not just being photographers, but rather artists creating unique and expressive imagery. To see examples of our quality and style, please visit our Portfolio. 

We have shot in the darkest of dark chapels and reception halls so no need to worry! If the situation allows, we will set up additional lighting to ensure we get focused pictures. Some chapels do not allow for flash photography; and for that reason, we shoot on camera’s with superb low-light performance and lenses with low apertures

No. We take every measure to ensure consistent style and quality among our photographers. We have developed the unique style you see in our work over the years. Each shoot is reviewed to ensure our quality and style are consistent. All mistakes, no matter how minor, are scrutinized by the team. We trust that the quality and style of photography you receive will be consistent. However, we do tailor our shooting style and techniques to our client requests. For example, some clients may prefer a light and airy look while others may prefer dramatic lighting and shadows.

albums, prints & books faq

Product creation times vary, however, print orders will generally be completed within 5 weeks after the product order is submitted.

Similar to the post-production process, if you require rush processing, a fee of £250.00 will be charged. Additional fees for rush shipping may also apply.

As with our other products, production times vary. However, you can typically expect to receive your album 6 weeks after placing the order. The process prior to placing the order varies in duration depending on how quickly you respond to the instructions for the album design as well as the number of changes you request after the initial designs. Some brides complete this within a month or two; others take over a year.

Similar to the post-production process, if you require rush processing, a fee of £250.00 will be charged. Additional fees for rush shipping may also apply.

Each album is different, all with options for various page quantities. 

Extra images beyond what is included in your package can be added for an additional cost. Refer to our album designer for more information!

Post production FAQ

Yes we do. Every image we deliver is post produced with our unique signature style of post-production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. Many photographers will not post produce any images, or will only post produce “select” images from your wedding. This means that you may have pictures that are too dark, have strange skin tones or other common photography flaws.

“Touching up” in our studio is the same as our signature (standard) post-production. See the question below for clarification.

Advanced post-production includes touch-ups such as removal of blemishes, removal of bags under eyes, removal of fly-away hairs, etc. On the other hand, custom post production is anything that requires extensive, custom work in Photoshop such as removing entire objects from the scene, changing the size and shape of body parts or other objects in the scene, adding objects to a scene and other custom work. We charge hourly for the custom post-production as the time required ranges depending on the complexity of the project. Please contact our studio manager for a quote for custom post-production.

We shoot all of our images using Large Raw.

Image Download FAQ

You have the right to reprint images whenever you want. However, you may not sell your images for profit or publish your images without the written consent of Leon Britton Photography.

Each of our packages comes with a full resolution image download. However, we typically do not provide RAW (unprocessed) files from our shoots because we believe in delivering a finished product. In fact, we’re often shooting with the end (post-produced) product in mind. However, on occasion, we may provide RAW images along with our post-produced JPG’s for an additional fee and restrictions.

For a 3-hour engagement session we typically deliver 50-70 images and for a wedding , we typically deliver 50-300 images per hour of coverage. Keep in mind these numbers may increase or decrease depending on the flow of the day and the number of events/activities needing to be captured.

Yes we do. All of our packages come with Full Resolution image download.

There is a £100 replacement charge for additional downloads after the event has been archived. We strongly suggest you make at least one copy of the download when you receive it from us. Archiving takes places 6 months after the date of your event.

In addition to a selection of lenses and portable lighting options, we use the following cameras both in our studio and also on location:

Canon R5 DSLR

Canon 5d Mk IV DSLR

I couldn’t recommend Leon more highly!! I needed some headshots and in all honesty, I don’t like to have my pictures taken or see myself on them. Well, I couldn’t have hoped for a better photographer. From the moment I set foot in the studio, Leon made me feel comfortable and at ease. He talked me through the details of shoot beforehand, chose my favourite music and gave me so many helpful tips on how I can e.g. place my hands or feet so it looks good on a photo (and I feel more comfortable ‘posing’. He took a lot of time and I never felt rushed or pressed for time at all. We had several outfit and background changes and by the end of it, I really enjoyed the experience. A first for me when it comes to having my pictures taken. In short, I was completely happy not just with the experience in the studio but also with the photos that he took. If there is any ‘criticism ‘ at all, it’s that you’ll have too many good pictures to choose from. But even for this Leon has a pro tip on how to select just the right one.
