I have photographed hundreds of weddings and gathered the most frequently asked questions from my couples. If you have a question that isn’t below, no matter how small it might seem, then please do ask me.
When ready to book, confirm your names, wedding date & location and I will send over a booking form and confirm availability. You’ll also receive details for paying the £300 booking fee. Balance is not due until nearer the wedding.
Some clients like to meet me beforehand the booking is made, while many like to chat via Zoom/Facetime or on the phone to secure their wedding date and then meet up with me closer to their wedding day. It’s up to you.
I’m usually available Sunday afternoons or evenings during the week for wedding meetings.
Coverage is from 2 hours of bride preparations to a short while after the first dance (You can add extra coverage if you like). All the images are carefully hand-edited ready for you to print and share. An online viewing gallery is also provided.
For intimate weddings, I can provide a half-day packages for Monday to Thursday weddings throughout the year (excluding Bank Holidays). Please contact me for further details.
Absolutely! This can include adding an album, having an engagement shoot, adding more coverage or a second photographer. In addition, prints and canvasses and also available. Simply, let me know your specific requirements.
As I want to blend into your day seamlessly, I will dress as if I were a guest at your wedding (I’m not a t-shirt & cargo trousers photographer). If you have a specific themed wedding, then please do let me know.
Absolutely! I recommend keeping the group photo list to around ten, but of course, you can have more. I work through group photos as quickly as possible so that you don’t miss out on any of the fun of your wedding. Nearer to the date of the wedding, we will discuss the group photos that you want.
I’m very grateful that many couples choose to feed me. The majority of caterers can provide a ‘suppliers meal’ for the photographer, band etc., without the cost of a guest meal. However, it is never a requirement, and the last thing I want to do is add more costs to your day, so I’m happy to pop out and get lunch somewhere or bring a picnic; just let me know.
I have photographed nearly 350 weddings and have never even come close to missing a day. I’m very hardy, and I eat well and keep myself fit and healthy. Plus, I also avoid extreme sports and pursuits. However, just in case of an emergency, I am a member of many photography associations and networking groups, so I have other professional photographers that I can call upon.
When photographing a wedding, I like to be as unobtrusive as possible, so I generally work alone. However, if you would like a second photographer, this can be added to your package.
When photographing a wedding, I take along with me three cameras plus multiple lenses, flashguns, memory cards and batteries, just in case of any unlikely problems.
Very safe! Firstly, my cameras hold two memory cards, with one of the cards being a backup copy. At the end of the wedding, the cards go into a secure holder. The holder is kept in my pocket until I get home.
The photographs are then uploaded to my main computer, onto a back-drive, and up to a cloud-based storage system. The photographs are also kept on the original memory cards for the first few weeks for good measure.
3 weeks! The industry standard is 6-12 weeks, but I know how keen and excited you will be to see the photographs and start showing them to all your loved ones.
Every photograph is individually hand-edited to ensure the best exposure, contrast, tone, etc. I avoid using ‘Instagram style’ photo filters, which will make your photographs look dated within only a few months of your wedding. Instead, your photos will be bright, colourful and will reflect the spirit of your wedding day. If you want more extensive editing, I am happy to obtain quotes from commercial retouchers.
You can expect to receive around 400 carefully edited photographs for a full-day wedding. The pictures you receive will be high-resolution, large files, ready for printing.
Yes, of course! I always do things properly. This includes extensive public liability and professional indemnity insurance, plus all of my photography equipment is insured too.
Yes. Many couples choose to do this. Having an album is a beautiful way to preserve the memories of your wedding day, and the album also becomes your first family heirloom for you to pass on to generations to come.
I can tell you that every wedding is different. Having photographed weddings for over 15 years, I have pretty much experienced every possible situation, so you can rest assured knowing that you are in safe hands when you book me. If you have any questions or are unclear about anything, please let me know, and I’ll be delighted to help.
