Do you travel?
Travel is and has always been an integral part of my photography. I am happy to travel for weddings all across the country within reason, however, additional travel and accommodation costs will incur.
Do you need accommodation?
For weddings that are over two hours away, I will require to book accommodation the night before to ensure I am there for you on the wedding day. Trust me, the last thing we want is for me to get stuck on the road on my way to you!
How many photos will we receive?
Every wedding is unique and it's impossible to guarantee a specific number of files. I focus on giving you quality, not quantity. There are only so many shots you want to see of your cousin having a drink at their table! Unless it really is your favourite cousin... But, as you put your trust in me to create a beautiful and emotive story, it generally works out as 350+ images.
How do we book you for our wedding?
When both parties are happy that I'm the right person for your wedding, I will send you a digital contract to sign followed by a 25% booking fee. This becomes non-refundable 14 days after you have made your deposit, as outlined by The Consumer Rights Act. This deposit allows me to refuse service to anyone else inquiring about the same date and covers administrative costs.
When do we need to pay the final payment?
The final payment is due 28 days before your wedding date. In your contract, I outline the exact date so you don't forget. I will also send you a reminder!
What happens after we book you?
After you have booked me for your wedding day, we might organize an engagement shoot if you’ve decided to book that, too. I will also continue to answer any questions you might have in the run-up to your wedding. I don't travel to venues before your wedding day because I don't find it necessary - your wedding day will unfold unique to you. Few weeks before your wedding, I will send you a questionnaire to ensure I have all the important details on hand!
Do you back up your images?
I back up the original files both physically and on the cloud. However, I urge you to do the same when you receive your files. Few years after your wedding, I might delete the original files, however, should that happen I will get in touch with you and ask you if you'd like to purchase them. This doesn't mean you have the permission to digitally alter (edit) the files, though.
Have you got an insurance?
It is not uncommon for some venues to request a public liability insurance certificate. I’m fully insured and am happy to send a copy to your venue.
Can we print our images?
Of course! I'm a big believer that your images deserve to be printed, either to go in an album, book, or in a frame! You will receive a print release with your gallery which allows you to approach any printing lab of your choice. Also, your gallery will have an online shop connected to it, so you can easily make purchases through my lab of choice, giving you a guarantee of high quality.
Do you do albums?
Yes! I will get in touch with you after your wedding day to have a chat about albums and books or we can discuss them during the booking process.
Do you go group shots?
I know that traditional group shots may be important for your parents and grandparents. For that reason, I will undertake a handful of group shots, however, I don't do many different variations of family, extended family, and friends group shots. This takes it away from the documentary approach I use and keeps you away from enjoying your big day. If you prefer a more traditional approach to weddings, I may not be the right person for you.
Do you do destination weddings?
I most definitely do! I regularly travel abroad for street and documentary photography (or, used to pre-Covid!) so I am used to it, and I love combining the two. I will give you a tailored quote for your destination wedding based on airfare, accommodation, and the number of days you require me for.
Do we have to feed you?
As someone who spends more time with you than anyone else on the day, I do kindly request that you ensure my second shooter and I are able to either eat a vendor meal during your wedding breakfast or you have a bar tab allowing us to order food on the premises. We do not require a three-course guest meal (although, we certainly won't decline it!), but we do need the energy and focus which is why a warm meal is important and very much appreciated to keep us going. This also means that I won't have to leave the premises to travel to local cafes or restaurants.
What happens if you're ill on your wedding day?
In the unlikely event of being physically unable to photograph your wedding (e.g accident, severe illness), I will ensure a photographer of similar style and caliber is covering the wedding on my behalf. I am a part of various supportive networks that connect wedding photographers for situations like this and helps me find people on short notice. The wedding will then be edited by myself to keep it in my signature style.
