    CAN I SEE SOME OF YOUR PREVIOUS WORK?

    Absolutely! I actively encourage prospective clients to take a look at my portfolio, to get a good idea of my style of work. A selection of my wedding images are available to view here on my website. I also post regularly to my Facebook and Instagram. If you would like to view my work in sample Folio wedding album please let me know and we can arrange a meeting. 

    DO YOU HAVE A CONTRACT?

    Yes, I give all my clients a photography agreement that confirms your booking and explains exactly what you can expect before, during and after your wedding day.

    DO WE NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT? 

    Yes, a deposit of £95 is payable when you confirm your booking (which reserves your wedding date), this is non-refundable. The balance is then due 4 weeks before your wedding day.

    HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

    Once you’ve decided to engage my services, if it's at a face to face meeting we can complete the paperwork, if it's online I'll send you a secure link to a private booking form and when that's been completed I'll have the information needed for your contract. Once the contract has been signed and the deposit paid you'll have booked your wedding date! Payments can be made by bank transfer, paypal, cash or I can now take payment via a contactless machine.

    I'D LIKE TO GO FOR AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT....BUT WHAT DO I WEAR?!

    First and foremost, you should feel comfortable. I usually advise my clients to avoid large logos, brands and loud patterns. Items that crease easily should also be avoided. Furthermore, shots look great when the couple are wearing clothing of a similar style and colour palette. I am happy to offer guidance here if required. 

    DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?

    Yes, I offer a range of beautiful Folio wedding albums, if you would like to see a sample please get in touch to arrange a viewing. I also offer beautiful folio boxes and some fabulous wall art.

    DO WE NEED TO MEET BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?

    If you're having a pre wedding photoshoot then absolutely!  If you're not having a pre wedding photoshoot we could always meet up for a tea and a chat, this isn't always possible but we can still build up a relationship via messages/emails/video call, whatever works.

    DO WE RETAIN THE COPYRIGHT OF THE IMAGES?

    As photographer, I retain the copyright, but I give you the licence (as stated in the wedding contract) to use the photos as you wish from the USB for personal use only, including making prints. You may use also them on social media if the images are credited. I also ask that I am able to use some on social media and my website but this is wholly dependent on your explicit permission and a privacy form will be sent out to you. 

    This is a opt in or opt out form, it also informs you how I will use the information you give to me.

    WHAT APPROACH DO YOU TAKE IN PHOTOGRAPHING A WEDDING? 

    Capturing your wedding is one of the most important ways to tell the story of your love and one that I'm extremely honoured to be part of. Your wedding day forever captured in beautiful photographs will be something you will treasure forever! I encourage all my couples to relax and let loose on their wedding day, to embrace whatever the day may throw at them, to laugh until their stomach's ache, to dance until their feet hurt and enjoy every moment because those make the best memories.

    Don't worry about the dress, it will get dirty at some point and guys you may even split your pants - yes, it has happened before and yes I did capture it. ha ha but these make the best memorable images that will turn in to wonderful memories. In years to come when looking back at your photo's I promise you will say 'WE HAD THE BEST DAY EVER!'

    I also love those photos you didn't know I'd taken, raw genuine emotions and hilarious moments!

    ARE YOU INSURED?

    Yes. 

     

  • ON THE DAY

     

     

    HOW LONG DO YOU WORK ON THE WEDDING DAY?

    It all depends on the package chosen, typically on a full day I will arrive halfway through the bridal prep halfway and will stay up until at least 10 minutes after your first dance, which is usually around 8-9pm. However, if you require more time then I am very happy to quote for that.

    DO YOU SHOOT ALONE?

    Yes, unless a second shooter is requested.

    My aim is to be a friend at your wedding whilst also being your photographer. Shooting alone allows me to remain unobtrusive and to go unnoticed for the majority of the day.

    DO YOU NEED FEEDING AT A WEDDING?

    No! I am more than happy to bring along my own lunch. That said, if food was available for me on your wedding day then I would greatly appreciate it.

    HOW LONG WILL THE GROUP PICTURES TAKE?

    I’ll work with you to understand what group shots you would like and how these are best scheduled into your day. Just to give you an idea I'd say allow 2-5 minutes for each group photo, typically I would try to take all of your group pictures within half an hour. I personally recommend you limit the amount to around 10 group pictures, as any more than that can end up eating into your precious time. It's entirely up to you though so if you want more or less group shots then that is absolutely fine.  

    DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?

    Yes, I always have additional cameras and lenses, along with extra batteries, memory cards, lighting gear, and anything else I think might come in handy on your wedding day.

     WHAT IF IT’S RAINING ON THE DAY?

    If it’s really throwing it down outside we can find a nice place to light up inside and take any of the formal portraits that you require there instead. Typically, at some stage of the day there will be a break in the rain though, so if an opportunity presents itself, I may drag you outside for a few quick pictures. Unless of course you don't mind getting wet, as in that case we just carry on taking photographs as normal!

    Don't be too scared of the rain as it can make for beautiful photos.

  • AFTER YOUR WEDDING

     

    ARE ALL OF THE FINAL IMAGES EDITED?

    Yes, following the wedding day I go through all photos ensuring that you have a good variety of quality pictures that tell the story of your day. 

    HOW LONG AFTER OUR WEDDING WILL OUR PHOTOS BE READY?

    I aim to have all your photos ready within 5-6 weeks.

    HOW WILL WE RECEIVE OUR WEDDING PICTURES?

    I upload your images to a private online gallery where you, friends, and family can log in and see your photographs. Once you have viewed the gallery and have confirmed you're happy I'll post your USB, ALBUM or any ART WORK you've ordered to you.

  • ✰STILL GOT SOME QUESTIONS?

    I fully understand that choosing your wedding photographer is a massive decision and I want to ensure that you feel secure when making a booking with me, so if you have any questions then I am always available to chat. Just head over to my contact form here and let me know how I can help.

    I have only touched on the basic details on this page, so if you like we can arrange a meeting to have a chat about your wedding plans and we can go over how I work in more detail too.

    Hope to hear from you soon
