What is your photographic style?
Like a lot of wedding photographers, I have a photojournalistic style. This means I capture the whole day naturally as it unfolds and create as little disruption to the flow of your day as possible. Your wedding photos will tell a true story of the emotions and moments throughout the day. I aim to capture truly honest reactions and emotions from you and your guests and so want them to be relaxed around the camera and for the camera not be intrusive into the atmosphere of the day.
Did you study Photography?
Yes! I have a Degree in Photography & Digital Imaging.
How far will you travel?
Anywhere! I love to travel and will be happy to travel to wherever you want me. If I need to travel further than 100 miles then I ask for a nights accommodation the day before the wedding to ensure I arrive without traffic issues. I am also available for weddings abroad.
Do I need to pay a deposit when booking you?
Yes. I ask for a deposit of £200 to secure your booking with the remaining balance payable 4 weeks before the wedding.
Do you usually meet couples prior to booking?
Not always. Most couples get a good sense of my style from my website portfolio and are happy to book as soon as they’re ready. I do like to meet up with my couples closer to the wedding date to go over all the details for the day.
How many photographs will we receive?
This completely depends on the day. The number of photos can depend on factors such as the number of guests, hours of coverage, types of events, weather, hours of dancing ect. For a general full day wedding you can expect between 300 – 600 images on your final USB.
Are you insured?
Yes, I am fully insured for both public and professional indemnity.
What cameras and kit do you use?
I use 2 professional Nikon digital cameras with a variety of lenses and flashes. I also have extra back-up cameras and kit just in case.
What is a pre-wedding shoot?
A pre-wedding (or engagement) shoot is a great opportunity for you to get comfortable in-front of the camera before your big day. The shoot takes place in natural surroundings, any time in the lead-up to your wedding at a location of your choice. A pre-wedding shoot can also be a great way for us to get to know each other better and for us to chat about all thing weddings. The photos from the session can be useful for save-the-date cards, invitations, the guest book or just to have up on the wall!
Do you take traditional family photos?
Yes! I am more than happy to do group shots, although I do recommend you keep them down to around 8 or 10 traditional groups. If you would prefer not to have the formal group shots that’s fine too!
Who owns the copyright of the images?
I own the copyright to the images but you have the right to do whatever you want with them for your own personal use. This includes sharing on social media, making additional USB/CDs for friends and family and printing your images.
What happens if you’re ill on the day?
I have never had cause to cancel or not attend a wedding to date and I take my obligation to you, on your wedding day, very seriously. That being said I could never give a 100% guarantee against illness. In the case of a very serious illness or other exceptionally serious circumstance I would do my upmost to find you a replacement photographer. I have a great network of photographers I can contact in circumstances like this – and if I am unable to do so you would of course receive a full refund.
When and how do we view our photographs?
I always aim to have your wedding photographs fully edited and ready to view 3-4 weeks after the wedding. I will send you a link to your private password protected gallery, from which you can download the images and begin sharing them with your friends and family. Your images will also be sent to you in full resolution on a USB.
If you have any other questions please contact me here and I’ll help in any way I can.
