Being married myself I’m more than aware of the time and effort that goes into preparing for a wedding. I know that the little things are important too! I enjoy my work but take it very seriously . Every effort is made on my part to get the best possible images on the day in such a way that it truly represents the people present and moments that occured without disturbing the flow of the celebrations. I always check out venues and possible portrait locations before the wedding to make sure I can keep things moving on the day. The way I work on the day is very unobtrusive and relaxed. I like to let the day flow without interruption as much as possible.

Do you keep a backup of our pictures?
Before I leave your wedding reception I will have a back up of all the original files. I’m a bit of a tech geek but it has its advantages. When I get home I make another back up on an external drive. This backup is kept indefinitely. Furthermore all of the edited images are posted to an online gallery at their full resolution and can be downloaded at any time.
What camera do you use?
If you like my pictures then why does it matter? I will answer technical questions on formspring www.formspring.me/sterooney
How late do you stay?
I usually stay until the first dance. This way I will have captured all of the key moments of your wedding. If you have anything going on after the first dance such as a band, fireworks or an act I’m happy to stay a bit longer (if you buy me a drink. I want to be able to tell the story of your wedding so getting a few dance floor shots is important too.
Do you work on your own?
Yes. I see what I do as an art form. It’s personal to me and everyone sees things differently. I couldn’t trust your wedding photographs to anyone else. Occasionally I will have a second shooter with my but this is because I like to help those who are interested in photography such as students. I get a lot of e-mails from people asking if they can come along. If this is the case I will ask you first!
How many pictures will we get?
It really depends on how much is going on at your wedding. This year I’ve never delivered any less than 400 images but it has gone up to 800. All images are provided on a DVD as high resolution JPEGS. You are free to print and copy the images.
Do you have insurance?
Yes, of course. I have a comprehensive insurance portfolio.
Are you an award winning photographer?
Aren’t we all? I’ve won 3 Golds from the SWPP, 5 silver and 5 bronze. These are for Traditional and contemporary wedding photography . (One of the golds was for a landscape) I’ve also won 1 Kodak award and 3 Fearless awards from www.fearlessphotographers.com
Do you use flash?
I only use flash when I really have to or for special effects. For most weddings I don’t get the flash out until the evening reception. I want to be able to work with available ambient light and give a true impression of the wedding.
What is your style?
It cannot be defined!
What time do you start?
Usually 3 hours before the service.
How long before we see our pictures?
Usually within 4 weeks of the wedding.
Do we need to sort out a meal for you at the wedding?
No but a cup of tea would be nice. I don’t think you should buy me lunch if I’m working for you, just as I didn’t expect my boss to buy me lunch when I worked in an office.
How long do the albums take to be delivered?
Once you have OK’d the layout it can take anything from 10-28 days.
Do you get rid of any images?
I take a lot of pictures at a wedding and edit anything that’s in focus and looks good. I may experiment or take 2 or more of the same scene then choose the best one later. Although I don’t use all of the images in the final edit I never delete any of them.
Are you the best wedding photographer in the world?
I’m the best at doing what I do.
Does the price go up if we order an album at a later date?
No, you only pay the difference as it was at the time of booking.
