Got some questions?

Here are a few things you might want to know about how I work and the process of booking me

How I work

What's your style of photography?
Do you offer shorter or longer coverage?

I have two wedding photography packages which you can view on my Pricing page; Full Day and Hourly. There are Extras you can add on to either package too, including additional hours if you need more than 10 hours of coverage (I love capturing a good party!).

For Peak Weekend Wedding Dates

With there being a set amount of prime time weekends for a wedding photographer to work during the year, especially between April and September, I can only offer my Full Day package for such dates. Full Day coverage is up-to 10 consecutive hours of coverage; this may vary from 8 to 10 hours depending on the plans for the day (the price remains the same) and allows time for all parts of the day to be captured in my documentary style.

Perhaps you’re not sure on having photography in the morning. If so please see my ‘Do we need ‘getting ready’ photos? FAQ below for my thoughts.

Monday to Thursday Dates

With Monday to Thursday dates being less in demand, I can offer Hourly Coverage. Occasionally I can offer this package for super last-minute weekend bookings when I have space in my diary. Head over to the Pricing page to get the full low-down!

Do we need 'getting ready' photos?

I understand that having a camera around on your wedding morning may seem a little daunting, yet there are many lovely moments for me to capture within that time, even if I’m only with you for a short while.

I love arranging details for photos such as your outfit, shoes, sentimental keepsakes, the flowers, perhaps you have spare ‘save-the-dates’ and/or invitiations I can include to capture your theme too.

I’ll always avoid taking photos of faces until everyone is nearly ready/their make-up is on. Moments such as shared laughter between your friends, emotions running high, the buttons on your dress/outfit being done up, final touches of hair and make-up and perhaps everyone seeing you for the first time are all apart of the story! Reactions such as these really illustrate how the morning felt, so that when you view your whole wedding gallery, you’ll be able to relive the day which as everyone says, will go SO quickly!

Importantly, it’s a great way to get used to having a camera in the space, and for me to become familiar with your nearest & dearest. This really helps later on during times like walking down the aisle, when you’ll want to feel as relaxed as possible rather than distracted by seeing me and my camera for the first time.

I can typically start 2 to 3 hours before the ceremony to cover one partner. I can sometimes cover both partners depending on logistics and time (or you can book a Second Photographer, please see the FAQ section on this for more info) which we can discuss during the booking process. I’ll of course respect your wishes if you do not want me to capture the morning preparations, in which case coverage will begin 1 hour before the ceremony start time.

Do you take family and group photos?

As mentioned above, I won’t relentlessly pose guests; instead I will photograph them as they chat and enjoy the day. I am discreet yet super friendly; often people think I must be a friend of the couple!

That said, a small collection of posed, group photos with your family/friends do play an important part in your memories of the day. I will ask you for a list before the wedding which I will coordinate soon after the ceremony with the ‘group helpers’ (two of your mates that know who everyone is, they can gather them whilst I focus on the photos). As a guide, allow 5 minutes per photo in your drinks reception.

How many photos do we get?
Do you retouch photos?
What kit do you use?

I use two professional, full-frame Sony A7III Mirrorless cameras with a collection of prime and zoom lenses for different situations. I have lighting equipment should we need it, although I mostly work with natural light where possible. I use flashlights on the dance floor. I have a thorough backup process for your photos post-wedding.

What’s the process?

How far do you travel?
Who owns the copyright of the images?
How long have you been a photographer?
Do you work with a second photographer?

I mostly shoot weddings on my own as this best suits the way I work and my style of photography.

However there are times where an extra pair of hands are needed; if you’d like photos of both of you getting ready in the morning, or the venue and size of your wedding requires extra coverage. Every wedding is different and unique, so the need for this can be discussed before the wedding.

Are you insured?
How do we book?

Is your last question “are you free on our date?”

If so, drop me a line and we’ll chat!
