Q. How do we book you and secure our date?
Once I have checked availability of your chosen date a 20% non refundable deposit is required. The remaining balance will be paid 30 days before your wedding date.
Q. Can we meet up before we book you?
I encourage this as it allows us to get to know each other and finalise arrangements. If you do not live locally do not worry as we can talk either by phone or via Skype.
Q. What time do you arrive on the wedding day?
We will negotiate a suitable time beforehand. This often depends on the package you have chosen.
Q. What time do you leave on the wedding day?
Most couples like me to stay until the first dance, then try to get a selection of dance floor shots of evening guests partying away.
Q. What happens if you fall ill for the day of our Wedding?
If I do fall ill before your wedding day and can not attend I will make sure that I let you know with as much notice beforehand. I know a number of alternative wedding photographers who can happily step in if needed and I will make sure that the service they give you is the same as the one I am giving you.
Q. How long do we have to wait for the photos?
This time to receive all of your finished photos can vary depending on work load in peak times. I do like to share with you a few sneaks peaks a few days after your wedding on our Facebook page.
Q. Do we have to have a Pre-Wedding shoot?
You can individually customise all of the options in your package package so you get what you want.
Q. How far will you travel?
I am available to cover your wedding anywhere in the UK and the world. This may incur an extra cost depending on the distance involved. This can be discussed further in our meeting.
Q. Will you visit the venue before the big day?
Although available to photograph anywhere in the UK and Europe, it is not always possible to visit the venue beforehand. Where it is not possible I will research it via Internet to familiarise myself it fully.
Q. Can you make an album for us?
Of course I can. Our luxury wedding pack includes a deluxe digitally printed album at no extra cost. All our other packages an album is an added extra. You will be involved in the choice and fully decide how your finished album will look in terms of layout, colours and number of pages etc.
Q. Can you pencil us in / hold our date?
Unfortunately not. Your wedding date is only secure once you've paid the deposit and returned the booking form. Weddings are booked on a first-come, first-served basis.
Q. Do we have to feed you?
Although a meal would be appreciated, if this is not possible I am happy to bring/ buy my own.
Q. What is your shooting style?
I would describe my style of photography as contemporary, relaxed and fun
Q. We want lots of group photos, you can do that right?
Group photos are not a problem. I normally ask you to list approx 10 key groups which can be photographed after the ceremony either at the church or at the reception venue. Once these groups have been done there is a window of opportunity to take some relaxed shots of other guests and the venue before everyone sits down to their meal.
Q. How do we pay the final balance?
The remaining balance does not need to be paid until 30 days before the wedding date. This should be paid by Bank Transfer. Please note I do not accept cheques.
Q. Are you insured?
Yes. For both public liability and professional indemnity.
Q. What equipment do you use?
I use only the top quality Nikon cameras and lenses.
Q. We need two photographers, can you help us with that?
Yes. I often have an assistant with me who will help throughout your day and with getting groups ready. Depending on my chosen assistant they are also qualified to take photographs professionally at an additional cost of £250.
Q. Can we really do whatever we want with the images?
Yes. Your photographs on your USB Stick are all High Res images and are yours to keep. Just make sure you do not manipulate the images in anyway and that you use the very best printers to get any prints printed. I can help you with this if you require. Family and friends who would like to be order any photographs can do so directly through your Online Web Gallery.
Q. Do you offer any discounts?
My fees are very competitive without compromising the quality. Every effort is made to offer you a package which offers you exactly what you want
