Wedding Photography FAQs

Here are a number of commonly asked questions about my West Midlands wedding photography. 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? I love to capture real moments and create beautiful images with the minimum of fuss, my aim is to capture the real spirit and atmosphere of your special day without you really being aware that I’m actually there. My popular shoot and share collection includes full day coverage (around ten hours) which covers everything from bridal preparations right up to the first dance. If you’re getting married at a registry office, you’ve got the option of around two hours coverage which includes arrivals, ceremony, family and couples pictures.

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 if they have full day coverage and around 150 if they get married at a registry office. All the images are edited to the highest possible standard and uploaded to your personal online gallery within a week of your wedding, I’ll then put your USB flash drive in the post which will contain all your pictures in colour and in black and white. All your images are kept online for five years so you and your family and friends will have plenty of time to view and download them, all for free.

Can we print the images on the USB flash drive and are they the same as the files we can download online? Yes, the files on the USB and what you can download from your online gallery are exactly the same. They are all high resolution JPEG’s and you make your own prints at home or get them printed at an highstreet/online lab, you can also make your own wedding albums, photo books, order canvas prints, etc.

Can I see a wedding that you’ve recently photographed? Yes, of course, please click here to view a recent wedding. This is exactly how you and your guests would see your pictures and download the images, all for free.

Are you full time, how long have you been in business, are you insured and what camera do you use? Yes, I am a full time West Midlands wedding photographer and I’ve been in business for nearly twenty years, I photographed my first wedding back in 2003. I have both public liability and indemnity insurance and I shoot on a Canon 1Dx along with L series lenses. I carry spare camera bodies, extra lenses, flashguns and batteries.

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. I am friends with other West Midlands wedding photographers and in an emergency, I would do my very best to find a replacement photographer for you.

How can we go about having a chat and possibly booking you? Please let me know the date of your wedding, hopefully I’ll be available and we can have a video chat over Zoom or arrange an home visit. There’s no pressure to decide there and then, I’ll let you have a think about it and if you’d like to go ahead and book, simply let me know and I’ll send you confirmation via email, there is no need to pay a deposit. We’ll then meet up around one week before your wedding to finalise all the details and where you can make payment, you can pay with cash, a cheque or via bank transfer.
