As soon as possible after you have booked your venue! I am currently getting bookings coming in right round to December 2017, almost 2 years in advance, so if you love my work and know that you want to book me, please don't leave it too long before you do so - I really hate [...]
As a guide, full day coverage starts from £1250, but I recognise that every wedding is as unique as the couple planning it, so please get in touch, give me all the details (the more the better!), and let me give you a personalised quote based on your actual plans for your day.
Engagement sessions are a great way of breaking the ice before your actual wedding day. They are not included in your wedding package price, but can be purchased at an additional cost. I do sometimes include them on gift cards that I give out at wedding fayres that I exhibit at, so why not drop [...]
There's no doubt about it, getting married can be a very costly affair. After your venue, your honeymoon, your dress (and maybe your shoes if you are a very lucky girl!), your wedding photography can be the next most expensive thing you spend your money on, and I totally understand that it can seem a lot [...]
I certainly am! I have both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance. Many wedding venues will actually not allow photographers to work at their venues without it.
The decision of whether you need a second photographer at your wedding depends on a number of factors, including personal preference. A second photographer is a popular option because it provides more photographic coverage of your wedding, and also helps to provide a different perspective on your day. An example of this is during your ceremony, [...]
My standard, full day photography packages all include up to 10 hours photography coverage. This is usually plenty of time to cover from the getting ready photos in the morning to about 30 minutes after your first dance to get some of those fun party shots. And don't worry, if on the day things get [...]
You certainly can! I love to see the images that inspire you & I'm happy to see how we can incorporate a certain style or specific pose into your wedding photography, if it is possible on the day. I don't guarantee to copy them all as, apart from anything else I assume that you will [...]
That's absolutely fine, it is your wedding, and I want you to love the photos that you receive from me. I will probably check that this is still the case during our planning meeting, and look at the ways round it if you suddenly find yourself in the dog house with great aunty Mabel because she got [...]
Of course it is - it's your wedding and it's important to me that you are happy with your photos after your wedding. Most couples choose to have between 5-10 formal group photos of their family and friends as they consider them to be an important record of their day and their family. We discuss [...]
I really hate having my photo taken and am worried about how I will cope with having a photographer following me around all day!
This is one of the reasons why having a pre-wedding photo shoot is such a good idea. It gives us a chance to get to know each other, and have a bit of fun down the park or the beach, out in the country or out and about in town before the big day. 'FUN?' I [...]
Well, just to reassure you, I have never missed a wedding yet! That said, because I like to plan for every eventuality, I do have a back up plan in place, and have a wide circle of highly competent wedding photographer friends who I know will be only to happy to step in should the [...]
Yes please! It's a long day, and I work better and am less cranky when I'm not starving hungry!!! I start the day with a hearty breakfast, and usually have a couple of cold drinks and a banana in the car, but after that I'm usually too busy taking amazing photos of your wedding to [...]
As a rule I generally provide between 350 - 550 photos for each wedding I photograph. This is only a general guide though, as the number of photos provided depends on a variety of different things. The size of your wedding, whether you have booked 1 photographer or 2, the number of venues used throughout the [...]
The short answer is no, but please, let me explain why not before you get too worried! A wedding is a very fast paced, and action filled day, and this is very different from the more controlled environment of a portrait shoot such as your engagement shoot. As a result I am likely to take [...]
No, when you receive your photo files they will all be watermark free. I do sometimes put a small watermark on any photos that I share as a sneak peak on facebook, and I ask that you do not crop these out, as this is one way I can advertise my services through the wonders [...]
You certainly may. If you want all of your images converted to black & white as well as colour, just let me know. I used to provide this as a standard part of my service, but feedback from my couples was that they preferred me to just select a handful of key images into black [...]
Yes you can! All photos are provided in both high and low resolution file sizes, so that you can print large from the high resolution files, and can use the low resolution files to share your wedding photos on facebook or other social media if you wish.
Can we order an album after our wedding if we didn’t select an album package at the time of booking?
You certainly may. The price of my albums remains the same whether you choose to order one at the time of your original booking, or if you decide that you want one at a later date - I won't artificially inflate the date after the wedding. The only changes that I cannot control are manufacturing [...]
You do. I am happy to assist or advise in this process if you wish, and I do sometimes make suggestions of an additional photo here or there if I think it will help in the story telling element of the album, or if it helps the images that you have chosen to work better [...]
