FAQ’s

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 and invoice via email. You need to complete the forms and send the deposit within two weeks of saying you want to book. If payment is not made after the two weeks then I reserve the right to offer the date to someone else.

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 mind I always ask that you allow a little time (20-30 minutes) for us to go somewhere alone without the rest of your guests to capture some relaxed portraits of the two of you on your wedding day. These are those romantic shots which will take pride of place on your wall, on your loved one’s mantle or hell, even your FB cover photo!

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 organise and plan these shots. We will even come up with a rainy day plan for these shots….well because….its the U.K.

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 personalised contract. This will be supplied as a PDF for you to check prior to making payment. There’s no need for a signature, as the contract starts when payment is made. Please note, there is no VAT on the prices charged, so the price shown is the price you’ll pay.

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?

A sneak peek will be posted within 24-48 hours of your wedding on Facebook with a story usually put on Instagram depending on your privacy agreement. File processing and editing will commence following the wedding date and shall be completed within 6 weeks for weddings between September – June or within 12 weeks for peak season weddings in July & August. The photos will be available to view in an online gallery once the editing is complete. A link will be sent to you via email.

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.
