Frequently asked questions

HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?

HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?

I travel all over the country shooting weddings and also have shot weddings in Europe and North Africa.

Whilst I don’t put a limit on what you will receive, I tend to deliver between 500 and 1000 images from a wedding. These are all the images that tell the story and really showcase your day.

WHAT IF I AM UNCOMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?

WILL YOU NEED ANY INFORMATION ABOUT OUR WEDDING DAY IN ADVANCE?

You are not alone. 95% of my clients and many others feel the same way including myself!

I purposely keep my approach to capturing your wedding day relaxed and fun to help you feel at ease. I help out where I can, become part of the party and try not to hide behind the camera so you see me instead of hearing loads of clicking!

Yes I will. A few weeks before your wedding day, I will send you a questionnaire to read and fill out. This should cover most of what I need to know. We would then arrange a time to chat and go through a plan for the day.

I’m a big believer that the most important thing is that the both of you have an awesome time. The last thing I want to do is bother you with loads of questions when you could be celebrating with your guests. So we get all the organisation bits out of the way before the wedding day. Then on the day, I know when things need to happen so can work with others and we can do it all for you and you can enjoy your time with your invited family and friends!

IS THERE A BOOKING FEE?

The booking fee is £350 and is required to reserve your date. The balance payment is required 2 weeks before the wedding.

CAN WE HAVE GROUP SHOTS?

100% yes. I don’t show many on my website or social media as these are personal pictures that only mean something to the people at that wedding, however, I do take them and actively encourage you to take the time to take them.

I hear a lot that they take a long time, but with some pre-planning and a helpful groomsman/bridesmaid or two, they can be done really quickly and we can get you back to mingling with your guests where you should be.

If you can provide food on the day, then it would be very much appreciated, but it is not required. All I ask is to let me know at least 48 hours before your wedding day so I can arrange an alternative. If you are providing food, a hot meal would be great and I don’t have any dietary requirements.

HOW DO YOU HANDLE FAMILY DYNAMICS AND LARGE GROUP PHOTOS?

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE ILL OR INJURED FOR OUR WEDDING?

When I send you the questionnaire to fill out, there is a section for you to fill out any family politics or details I might not know. Please let me know if there are any tricky family dynamics to be aware of, I’d hate to commit a faux pas.

On the day I typically communicate with the groomsmen/bridesmaids to make rounding up people nice and easy, but I’ve also got a loud voice when needed, so announcing to the crowd is easy. However, I try to keep this to a minimum to allow for a more relaxed approach!

To date, I’ve photographed over 470 weddings and have only had to have 1 covered and that was due to having COVID and not being allowed to leave the house legally!

Luckily, I am part of a wide community of wedding photographers, many of whom are lovely people and have a similar approach and style to me. If something did stop me from photographing your wedding, I would use my network to find a suitable replacement.

If you have booked a second photographer, they will be up to speed with all the plans for the day, would step in straight away and absolutely smash it. You will be in safe hands!

WHAT DOES COPYRIGHT MEAN AND WHO GETS IT?

HOW LONG AFTER OUR WEDDING DAY WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?

Whoever owns the copyright of a photo owns that photo and the right to do with it as they wish. As with the majority of professional photographers in the UK, I own the copyright of the photos I take at your wedding.

You will have a licence to use the photos for unlimited personal use. This means you can post them on social media, share them with friends and family, and get albums and prints made as you wish. You can pretty much do as you please with them. The only limitation is using the photos for commercial/business use.

For example if your cousin owned a wedding planning business and wanted to use some of the photos I took at your wedding for their website, the personal licence wouldn’t cover this. You or your cousin would need to contact me to ask permission to use them for this purpose (in this, and most, examples I’d most probably would say yes). I like to keep track of where my (and your) photographs are being used.

All my couples receive their wedding photos within 6-8 weeks of their wedding date

CAN I GET AN ALBUM AND/OR PRINTS DONE?

Yes you can. It doesn't matter if you ordered one when you booked, you can add an album and/or prints to your booking at any time! Even years down the line! Just let me know your favourite photos and I will get on with the first design draft!

HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?

You will receive your photos on a secure password protected online gallery. You can view and download your photos from there at any time. This gallery can be shared with all your friends and family. Whoever you want to show your photos off to!
