FAQ

We're not good in front of a camera, can you help?

You and me both, that's why I prefer to be behind them! All jokes aside, almost everyone I speak to says they hate having their photo taken! But the results speak for themselves and if you check my testimonials page you'll see my clients often express how relaxed I am able to make them feel.

How long do you stay?

Depending on the package you choose I will start from a couple of hours before the ceremony to capture bridal prep or I'll begin by capturing guest arrivals at the ceremony then I work throughout the day until after first dances, typically 30 minutes but I don't put a hard limit on things! If the party is rocking I'll stick around to take some more awesome shots!

Do we get all the photos?

Absolutely! I like to keep things simple so every photo I capture, pick and edit is yours to keep forever. Download, print and share as much as you like! No additional fees or complicated tiered packages here!

How do we get the photos?

You'll receive your photos in two ways, first via a personalised online gallery where you can download, share and order prints and secondly you'll receive a stunning custom wooden keepsake box with your entire gallery on a premium USB stick and a selection of prints highlighting your day.

How many photos will we get?

Depending on the package you choose you'll receive a final collection of at least 450-800 images, sometimes more! (If it's a great shot you'll get it!)

How long will it take to get the photos?

I’ll aim to get everything to you within 3-4 weeks but if you need a few shots for thank you cards or something else, let me know and I can send you some sooner.

Do I have to order prints through you?

I do provide a print shop where you can order high quality prints and other products directly from your gallery! My chosen supplier is an award winning UK print lab with 30 years industry experience. However you can always download your photos and have them printed anywhere!

What's your style?

Most of your day will be captured in a "documentary storytelling" style but I tend to focus on capturing images that are more artistic and natural, I typically capture mostly candid shots throughout the day to ensure the emotions are true and the images are organic. I'll do the staged moments/group shots professionally of course and throughout the day we'll go off to get some more unique and stunning portraits together.

Short answer: My style is a unique combination of many styles!

Can we see a full gallery?

Of course! My portfolio is a showcase of my style and what I post on my social media is only a fraction of what my clients receive so feel free to ask to see more!

What if timings change or the day overruns?

It happens! There’s no need to worry, planning a wedding is stressful and I totally understand! I try to be as helpful and flexible as possible so if something happens on the day I'll work around it . If there's a last minute change just let me know and I'll be sure to accommodate you.

Do you recommend having a 2nd Photographer?

Everything you see on my website was captured by myself working solo, I personally do not recommend a 2nd photographer, they can sometimes be helpful to capture groom prep in the morning but beyond that I find it's quite distracting for your guests and can be hard to keep a low profile when there are two of us walking around! However if you do want a 2nd photographer on the day I'll be happy to help!

How much work is involved in covering a wedding?

From our initial chat/consultation right the way through to editing and delivery of your photos it typically takes around 40+hrs of work.

Are you insured?

I am fully insured for public liability, professional indemnity and all my business equipment for your peace of mind as well as mine!

What happens if you get sick or injured and can't attend?

As much as I'd like to say this will never happen I am of course prepared! It would take a lot to keep me from capturing your big day but if I cannot attend for any reason I'll do my utmost to find a suitable replacement in time. There's an amazing community of professional photographer's locally and across the UK and I'll do my best to find someone epic to capture your wedding in my place.

Can we meet you?

Absolutely! A face to face consultation either over Zoom or in person if you're local is a great way to discuss all your requirements and get to know each other before the day! Of course if you forget to ask me anything during our chat I'm only an e-mail or WhatsApp away!

Do we need to feed you?

It’s entirely up to you but not at all necessary, I am perfectly happy to bring a packed lunch! If you do want to feed me just FYI I have no dietary requirements. (Thanks by the way!)

Are your prices going to change?

The current cost of all my packages and extras are for 2022-23 and are subject to change for 2024 onwards.
