How would you describe your style?
I appreciate that most people want a combination of moments captured, couple portraiture, family shots and details of the items you have worked so hard on for your wedding day. As such, this is typically what I deliver from each wedding. When it comes to families I generally like to catch people being natural and the relationships between you. It’s a very relaxed experience as you just carry on as normal. Of course we’ll get some nice portraits for you too!
I hate having my photo taken, what can I do about this?
This is where a pre-wedding shoot is a great idea for wedding couples; it gives you a chance to get relaxed in front of the camera before the big day. However, on the day itself I typically offer gentle instruction, capturing semi-posed photos that look natural. Many of my couples that didn’t opt for a pre-wedding shoot said they enjoyed the couple portraits, as it gave them some quiet time to themselves during an otherwise hectic day.
I have a list of photos I want, can I send this to you?
The majority of photo lists I receive tend to be exhaustive and merely slow me down on the day. I’m happy to show you a full wedding gallery – the coverage is very detailed. The only shots you’ll need to list are those of your family group photos.
How many pictures do I receive of my wedding?
For weddings I edit down your day into a minimum of 30 photos per hour but often this will be more depending on coverage. These will all be fully edited and in JPEG format. I do not provide unedited photos or RAW files.
What albums do you use?
I am really passionate about the albums I use. I use some amazing companies and do all the design in-house so you have a completely unique, one-of-a-kind heirloom album to enjoy for years to come. I’ll happily show you the full range over a coffee.
Are you insured?
Of course. I have full public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
Is it just you that takes photos?
The majority of my weddings I cover by myself and it’s always just me when it comes to your family photos. On occasion I do bring a second shooter to weddings to provide extra coverage, often for larger weddings or at your request. If you’re interested in having a second shooter at your wedding I’m happy to provide the details for you.
How soon do I receive my photos?
Images are typically delivered to you six weeks after your wedding or four weeks after your family shoot. However, I will post a ‘teaser’ photo on my Facebook page much sooner.
How do I see the photos after our wedding?
We’ll get together in person where your images will be presented to you. This is also a great opportunity to decide on the details of your wedding or family album and any other items you might like, such as frames or copy albums. Having made sure you’re the first person to see your images, they will then be uploaded to a password-protected gallery so your guests may also view them.
We want to meet with you but don’t live locally, what should we do?
I frequently book photo assignments after a chat on Skype or after emailing and a phone call. I’m happy to chat however works for you.
We’re having our engagement shoot / wedding out of town, can we take you with us?
Of course, I find visiting new places hugely inspiring when it comes to taking your photo! I’ve been lucky enough to scale the country for weddings and overseas too. I’m happy to travel to wherever you are, just let me know where and when and I can give you a more detailed quote.
I’m sold! How do I get you as my photographer?
Great, give me a call or drop me a line to tell me! I’ll then ask for a retainer and signed contract and the date is all yours.
