"Vicky and Phil are wonderful! They made us feel so at ease and we love the photos of our special day. On the day, they were so unobtrusive and half the time we didn’t even know they were there. We’d 100% recommend Vicky and Phil to anyone and everyone planning their wedding"
Amy CREW • November 2019
A: Absolutely, we're a husband and wife team who always work together, book us and you'll know exactly who will be there on the day, Vicky and Phil.
A: In 2002 Phil 'Senior' married Vicky 'MacDonald' and Senior Mac Photography was born! We’ve been happily married (even with three kids!) and loving every minute, ever since.
A: Whilst we'd love to say yes to every enquiry, with the amount of time and care we put into preparing for every wedding and the several days of editing afterwards, we limit ourselves to shooting no more than 75 to 80 weddings each year.
A: Typically our style is a fusion of relaxed documentary and editorial wedding photography with some traditional posed photos thrown in to keep the parents happy! We have shot many weddings in pure documentary style and also many at the opposite end of the spectrum in a more traditional style. The beauty of having two photographers with a broad range of experience is that we can when necessary adapt our style to fit your needs.
A: We take bookings as much as 3 years in advance, but do get in touch even if your wedding is just a few weeks away and we’ll always be happy to help if we can.
A: We size the images as large as we can without filling up your USB media. We want you to print your pictures nice and big and display them proudly around your home!
A: We work a little magic on all of our images, but never to the extent that they look un-natural.
A: We have both public liability and indemnity insurance, certificates can be provided on request.
A: We have multiple backups of all of our equipment.
A: They can in a variety of sizes, the prints are album quality and delivered direct within a few days.
A: We include up to an hours travel in our prices but will consider travelling anywhere.
A: Two calendar months before the wedding.
A: For the variety of images and different angles we like to capture, one photographer just wouldn’t be enough. Then there's the posed family photos (which are optional) to keep the parents happy, with two of us we can make organising them as quick and painless as possible, while ensuring they still look great.
A: We're both full time photographers. We have experience in many types of professional photography, but have been specialising in weddings since 2009.
A: Yes, yes and yes! We pride ourselves on offering a personal service where we build a good relationship with you before the big day. Nobody wants to have two strangers wandering around at their wedding, for us booking via email or Facebook and then not meeting at least once before the day just doesn't feel right. We do like to meet all of our couples before they book if we can (though we understand that isn't always possible), many couples have a pre-wedding shoot and then finally there's the pre-wedding meeting where we talk through the details.
A: Absolutely, we are fully qualified and insured UAV pilots with CAA permissions for day/night aerial photography and video.
A: We guarantee a minimum of 400 images, once we have removed the duplicates and those where you are blinking etc. We’re very strong believers in quality over quantity.
A: Each and every image we supply is individually colour corrected and creatively processed with the same care and attention no matter which of our packages you have chosen.
A: We aim to have all images ready for our couples to view 6-8 weeks after the wedding, on rare occasions during the busiest times this can occasionally slip, but usually by no more than a few days.
A: We’ve heard this many times but unfortunately it’s not the camera that takes the photos it’s the person holding it! As with most things, having lots of experience, combined with ability is the key. Photographing a wedding is far from easy and is often very demanding, even for those, like us, who have many years of experience.
A: Our booking fee is £295, which is deducted from the final balance.
A: We are VAT registered, but all quoted prices include VAT where appropriate.
