After you've enquired via the contact form, you'll receive a comprehensive guide giving you more information about the service you have chosen (All Inclusive Elopements, Weddings or Family and Newborn Sessions). To confirm the booking, you must sign the contract and pay the non-refundable deposit.
I use an online gallery platform, a stunning way for you to experience your images digitally on computer, tablet or phone. You can download the images in the gallery here and also access the store. You receive Sneak Peeks within 2 weeks and your Full Gallery within 8 weeks. This may vary depending on time of year due to my workload. I will opt to extend this than deliver rushed work.
All-Inclusive Elopements: At current, there are only 2 slots left for 2023 elopements:
May 20th - 25th, 2023
October 14th - 19th, 2023
Weddings: 2023 is now FULLY BOOKED for weddings. 2024 diary will open in October 2022.
Family + Newborn Sessions: I have reduced availability for family portraits and newborn sessions for 2023. They will only be available for a limited amount of days per week for the first 3 weeks of each month. There will be one monthly mini day on the last week of each month. All sessions will take place on weekdays.
Weddings + Elopements: You get wet. Seriously, it's Shetland. The likelihood of rain is quite high and if you're considering eloping or marrying outdoors, you're going to have to factor in the chance you're going to get rained on. You won't melt, you'll bring plenty of layers and you'll get some wildly fun photographs. Embrace it!
Family Sessions: We will be in touch in the days leading up to your session and can look forward to the forecast. If you decide that you really don't want to have the session outdoors, we can opt for an indoor session at your home or have a look at re-scheduling.
Newborn Sessions: We'll be indoors anyway!
What Susan Sees Photography will have and will always have copyright and ownership of the images. When you receive them, you then have printing rights to the images, which means you can print them, post them on social media, blog them, email them to your family. What you don't have the right to do is re-edit them, sell them, use them for marketing purposes to earn a profit, or claim them as your own. Those rights remain as mine. All the nitty gritty is in the paperwork I’ll send you.
I'd be delighted to discuss your plans for your wedding wherever that may be! Enquiring early is key as leaving Shetland often requires a few day either side of an event. Travel and accommodation fees would be quoted depending on location and time of year and added to the package fee.
Simply answered, no. RAW files are unprocessed image files and they take up a heap of space. Plus you really don’t need 20 photos of you blinking, I promise. When you hire me, you're doing so because you like examples of my work. My post-shoot process is an enormous part of what you see and editing is where so much of my signature style comes into play. I promise not to withhold any images that you're hoping for.
Yes. I do not is book in every single wedding enquiry that comes my way. I do this so that my couples get the best experience possible and so I don't burn out. When it comes to weddings, it's about providing quality to my clients, not about squeeing in as many weddings as I can.
The Elopement Package has been designed for locals AND those who don’t live on the island. There are endless new ways to enjoy Shetland for everyone whether you've never been to Scotland or you've lived in Shetland your whole life.
