Frequently asked questions
Can we give you a photo list for the day?
I try to capture your wedding day as naturally and authentically as it happens, so it isn't really necessary or the best way to work. The only list I do ask for is any group shots you'd like, and I normally advise to keep this to between 8-10 groups.
I would hope you are booking me as you love my style, so trusting me and giving me free rein to work will result in the photos you want.
What camera equipment do you use?
I shoot with two Sony a7iii cameras, one with a 35mm lens and one with a 85mm lens. Both of these cameras have dual memory cards, so I'm backing up the photos as I work (for extra security)
Do you need to visit our venue before the wedding?
No this generally isn't required. I will research the venue before the wedding, and then also arrive early on the day to scout out photo locations.
Do we have to feed you?
Yes please! Shooting a wedding is generally non-stop for 8-9 hours, so a meal to refuel is needed. I generally sit down and eat while you and your guests are eating in a separate room.
How does payment work?
Upon signing of the contract, a £250 deposit is payable. This then secures the date for you. The remaining balance is then due four weeks before the wedding date.
I hate posing for photos, do we have to pose?
I know what you mean, I hate posing for pictures too! Thats why for 90% of your day, everything will be captured with the REAL you and you ENJOYING your day. There will be the formal group shots if you wish, but I make them FUN!
Are you insured?
YES! I am fully insured and have professional indemnity and public liability insurance.
How long will you stay at our wedding?
Thats up to you. If its a full days package that is booked, then I'll be there from bridal prep in the morning, through to catching everyone busting moves on the dance floor. If you only need me for the ceremony etc, then other packages can be considered.
How long will it take to get our photos back?
Believe me, I want you to have them as soon as possible BUT editing and making sure your photos look perfect takes time, and I don't like to rush it. For engagement photo sessions, you can expect your photos within 1-2 weeks of the shoot. For weddings, you can expect your amazing gallery 3-4 weeks after your wedding date.
How many photos can we expect from our wedding?
You can expect 50-100 photos per hour that I am there.
Can I have more than one photographer?
You certainly can! I work with a select few other photographers that assist me on weddings if needed. They understand my style and how I shoot, and in turn you'll get the same high quality service on the day.
