I really like your work. How do I book?
That’s great news! Let me get you both a coffee and have a face to face chat. If this is tricky to arrange then, no problem, we can chat over Skype. This gives us chance to get to know each other and I can show you some more of my work and talk through the package and contract with you. It’s so important to me that our personalities connect, we’re a good match and that my approach to wedding photography is what you’re looking for.
Please feel free to ask any more questions after the chat. Once you have decided that you want to go ahead with the booking let me know and I’ll send a booking form, contract
How would you describe your style of photography?
I take a photo-documentary approach to my wedding photography, capturing things as they happen. I’ll step in to take some more posed photographs of you both with your families and give some gentle direction at this point. For the rest of the day I will be busy behind the scenes getting precious photographs of all the tiny details you have spent months planning, and photographs of you and your guests having a blast on your special day.
In my experience, brides and grooms don’t actually spend much time together on the day – there are simply too many guests and too little time! With that in
When we discuss and plan your photographic day we’ll work out when best to fit these in. It can be all done in one go or split over blocks over the course of the day.
Can we provide you with a 'group shot-list'?
Yes please do! But please keep it to a maximum of 10 groups. I can provide suggestions to choose from if you are stuck! And remember that you have me to consult with up until the day where we can
If you don’t want the formality of the group shots then, well, don’t! It’s your day and you don’t HAVE to have these. I’ll capture who was there as you party – but please bear in mind I can not photograph every single guest and nor can I guarantee I caught Aunty Janet raising a glass. I will, however, capture everything that I see and will move around lots to capture as much as I can.
Do you have insurance?
Yep. I am fully insured and have both public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
What’s the total price that I’ll be paying for my photography package?
The total price of your goods and services can be found on your
Package prices can be found here.
How soon do I need to book you for my wedding?
Book early! I only take a limited number of bookings a year so that I can deliver a dedicated personal service. Once you have a face to face meet with me I will check in with you after a week to confirm whether you want to go ahead. Then you’ll have two weeks to pay the booking fee to secure the date.
When do I get the photographs?
Do you do a pre-wedding shoot?
Yes, I do! And even a post-wedding shoot – yes, that’s right, a shoot the day AFTER the wedding! These are all as add on’s to your chosen package at an additional cost. You can find more about that here.
Do I need any special hardware or software to view the photos?
The wedding photographs will be supplied in JPEG format via a password protected online gallery. You’ll just need a computer with internet access to view the photographs. I will email you a link to the gallery and you can even share the gallery with friends and family.
What is the meaning of life?
I’m still working on this one. Let me do a quick google and I’ll get back to you.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO I GET?
This depends on how long you book me for and whether or not you choose to have a second photographer. On average, for a full day for just me, you can expect around 500 images.
WHEN DO I HAVE TO PAY?
The payment is divided into a booking fee (25% of the total package) and a balance payment. The booking fee is due upon confirming the booking and secures your date for you!
The remaining balance is due one month before the wedding date.
WHAT IF I NEED YOU FOR ANOTHER HOUR?
If you decide before the day or on it that you need me to come earlier or stay a little longer than the purchased package hours then I am happy to do so at £50 per hour. You can add on a maximum of 2 hours.
DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS?
I believe my prices are more than fair especially considering the fantastic added value I offer in terms of great customer service as well as the ability to create bespoke packages.
I only take on a small number of weddings a year. I do this so that each couple get my full time and attention that you and your day deserves. I do not shoot weddings to supplement another income – wedding photography is my real job. For real. It is my chosen profession and one where I make sure I deliver a kick-ass service and photos with a smile.
DO YOU EAT CAKE?
Seriously, you even need to ask?
