Frequently Asked Questions

How long have you been a photographer?

I’ve been working in photography for 20 years now, starting on film when people had to learn how to take a picture , and after 15 years in hairdressing alongside fashion photography, I decided to do more weddings and up the game for other photographers.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

What style of photography do you offer? 

I try to cover the whole day in a press/reportage style to capture all of those moments of emotion and the bits you don’t see. Understanding there is an amount of tradition that goes along with some families preferences, we would sit down to discuss and plan to work along with you, in producing a style that you love.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Are you insured?

Insurance is a vital part of our industry so the answer is a big yes, and I would recommend that you don’t use anyone who doesn’t own 2 cameras or can’t provide you with a certificate of insurance.

Do you work with a second photographer?

Depending where in the world I am working, I always tend to have an assistant with me. But this is not a necessity, if you require a second photographer to travel to a different address, this is something that can discuss and plan in the wedding meeting beforehand as there may be an additional charge.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

How far do you travel?

Just like Columbus I was willing to find out if the world was flat or round. And soon I discovered that Columbus was right in that the world was round and have travelled all over it for work and for fun! There is no limit to where I will go.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

How do we book you?

I tend to only book after me talking with people as I like to keep a personal and friendly service, and discuss what you would require on the day. And from this I ask for a deposit and the completion of a booking form to ‘save the date’.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Do you re-touch or enhance the images?

I offer fully finished edited service as part of the package as you can see in my portfolio, but also I know people have different tastes. So I can offer you a few different styles for your wedding.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

What cameras and kit do you use? Do you have backups?

I’m a big Canon fan and have been for 20 years. I have the top of the range Camera lenses and lighting which is serviced and renewed on a regular basis, with back-up to complete the job  if required.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Do you do engagement shoots?

This is an optional extra and if you feel you have a fear of photographs this can be a good opportunity to conquer these fears.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Who owns the copyright of the images?

The copyright of the images will always remain in the photographers name. But I will provide a license for all images of your day to be printed and produced as long as it is not for a profitable or commercial sale.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

How many photographs will you take/provide for weddings?

Depending on the service you have, whether it be the short story or the fairytale, you would normally end up with as many as 400-900 pictures.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

How long after the wedding will we see the images?

You may be aware that processing can take some time to apply your style of effects onto your captured images. We aim to get these processed and ready for you within 3-6 weeks after your wedding day (Please be aware that at peak times or weddings abroad, it may take a little longer).
