FAQ

General Questions

Q: Where are you based?
A: I am based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. It’s pretty much in the middle of England (near Birmingham), so it’s perfect for travelling!

Q: Are you willing to travel?
A: Yes. Each commission is different so we will need to discuss this when you book but travel is not a problem. Simply Contact Me for more information.

Q: My question isn’t here, what do I do?
A: Please contact me, or connect with me by Social Media.


Weddings

Q: Do you do pre-wedding / engagement shoots?
A: Yes. The standard wedding packages all include a pre-wedding, or engagement shoot. The purpose of this is to make sure that we are comfortable with each other and I can understand exactly what you want from your photographs. This is done at a mutually agreed time and date, preferably at the wedding venue. You will also receive these images as a part of your package.

Q: Do we pay your travel expenses?
A: I am quite happy to travel all over the world to cover your wedding.
The cost of travelling to any shoot within a 100 mile radius of Shrewsbury is included in the cost of the shoot (unless otherwise stated).
Any additional miles will be charged at 45p per mile. If we are expected to travel abroad and/or stay overnight somewhere, this cost will be charged back to you (including any visa payments, etc). For further information, please contact me.

Q: Do we feed you?
A: As standard, yes, please. I am there all day, just like you, and when you and your guests eat, I would appreciate a bite too – I don’t need three courses, of course, but a small meal is always appreciated.
You must inform me at booking if this is not possible to ensure I can arrange provisions.

Q: How soon do I get my photos?
A: That really depends on how long I am there and how many I take. I aim to have all photos to you within 6 weeks of the wedding although it is often before this.
If you have ordered prints/books etc, the lead time will also depend on my suppliers but I will keep you informed of this


Headshots & Portraiture

Q: Where is the shoot?
A: I prefer to shoot outdoors with natural light. There are some locations local to me in Shropshire which are ideal. I am, however, willing to travel of course and will scout locations when this is the case.
If the weather isn’t amenable to outdoor shooting, however, I can also shoot indoors with the studio set-up. This would of course be at my base.

Q: Can you come to me?
A: Yes. I can come to your home or workplace. Please get in touch to discuss your needs. 

Q: Do you do school photos?
A: Not at the moment, but this is something that I aim to develop.

Q: Do you do executive / management photos?
A: Yes. I don’t just photograph actors. You can also come to me for your business needs too. A great profile photo on your business networks, such as LinkedIn are essential. A great photo is also a great introductory tool on websites in the ‘Our Staff’ or ‘Meet The Team’ sections.
I can do individual commissions or come to your office and shoot all the management team or, indeed, your workforce. Please get in touch to discuss your needs.

Working with Aaron Prior Photography

Q: Do you need an assistant?
A: Who doesn’t? Having said that; currently I do not have the need for an assistant (photographer or administrative) full-time. I am, however, always on the look out for someone to assist with weddings and large events. If you are a keen photographer looking to expand your portfolio or start your own business, please get in touch today.
