Here are a number of commonly asked questions about my wedding photography services. If after reading, you still have an unanswered question, please feel free to give me a call on 01384 830745 or send me an email.
What’s your style and how long will you be at my wedding? My style of wedding photography is natural, creative and most of all, fun! My aim is to capture the real spirit and atmosphere of your day, telling the story as it unfolds without you really being aware that I’m actually there. I offer full day coverage, that’s bridal preparations right through to the first dance, I usually spend around ten hours at the weddings I attend.
How many photographs do you take and when do we get to see them? I don’t put a limit on the number of photographs I take, but usually couples receive around 300 images from their wedding, all edited to the highest possible standards. All your images are uploaded to your private gallery within a week of your wedding. Your USB flash drive will be ready at the same time and I’ll put that in the post.
Do you take traditional family group shots? I prefer to take mainly natural un-posed shots but I do understand that some couples want a few traditional family group’s as well, I advise no more than ten and these can be done quickly and with the minimum of fuss.
Can I print the photos provided on the USB flash drive and are they watermarked in any way? All the images I provide are high resolution jpegs and I give you a licence to print, the images aren’t watermarked. You can take your USB to your usual photo processors on the high street or use an online service such as Photobox. And of course, you can also upload your images to social media to share with family & friends should you wish.
Can I book the shoot and share collection and come back for an album later? Yes, just pay the £495 for the day, then you can come back for an album later, all you’d need to pay is the difference of £250. Some of my couples ask for money as a wedding gift from their family & friends and pay for the album that way.
What if your ill on the day? I’ve photographed over 600 weddings and I haven’t missed one yet. It would take something extremely serious to keep me from attending your wedding. In an emergency I do network with lots of other local photographers so I would do my very best to find a replacement photographer for you.
What camera do you use and do you have backup equipment? I shoot on a Canon 1dx along with L series lenses. I carry spare camera bodies, extra lenses, flashguns and batteries. I also carry an emergency kit for brides/bridesmaids/guests which contains nail glue, needle and thread, safety pins and extra pins for button holes.
Are you insured and are you a member of any photographic professional bodies? Yes, all my equipment is fully insured and I’m covered by public liability and indemnity insurance. I’m a qualified member of the SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Photography). I’ve also won gold awards hosted by WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) based in America.
How can we go about seeing more of your work and possibly booking you? Please get in touch with the date and location of your wedding, hopefully I’ll be available and we can arrange a meeting where I’ll visit you in your home and I’ll explain how I work and show you things in more detail. There’s no pressure to book there and then, I’ll let you have a think about it and if you’d like to go ahead and book, let me know and we’ll speak over the phone to get a booking form filled out. I will then post out the form including a contract for you to sign and return to me, along with a £95 booking fee, which you can pay by cheque or bank transfer. The remaining balance is then due one week before the day of your wedding.
