FAQ'S and additional Info that may be of Interest...
If you can't find the answers you're looking for here then just get in touch and I'll be more
than happy to answer any questions you may have!
How soon do we need to reserve our date?
As soon as you've decided that I'm the right photographer for you! I take bookings up to 2 years in advance so if you've looked through my portfolio, you like my style of work and think that we might be a good fit then I would encourage you to either give me a call or send me an email so we could discuss my availability and arrange a consultation.
Do you travel?
Absolutely! I love travelling to wherever your special day is happening - whether it’s Surrey or The South of France! My wedding package includes my travel expenses for up to 1 hour, travel fee's will be added beyond this. Should I be required to stay overnight due to distance and/ or requiring extended coverage then an additional fee of up to £40 per night be added to cover the cost of my accommodation.
Deposit- How much & Is it refundable?
If you decide that I'm the right photographer to capture your wedding then a £250 deposit is required to secure your date. You would then receive a signed contract and your date would be secured with me. Once a deposit has been paid, I decline any and all offers to shoot other weddings on that date, due to this the deposit is nonrefundable.
How would you describe your Photographic Style?
In a nutshell, I would describe my style as journalistic with a touch of lifestyle thrown in. I like to capture things as they happen in order to tell the story of your wedding in the most natural way possible and I’m always looking out for those little details and sweet moments that make your day so personal to you. When it comes to your Bride & Groom portraits I believe that a little bit of direction really helps achieve beautiful pictures that still feel natural, fun and relaxed.
Do you do Group Shots and more "formal" photographs?
Yes, absolutely! I do however recommend that couples keep it to no more than 10 combinations. I am , of course, happy to cater to more combinations than just 10, but would strongly recommend that you allow for additional time in your itinerary so that there is sufficient time.
Do we HAVE to do the pre wedding shoot & do we get a discount if we don't?
The short answer is no. The pre wedding shoot is not mandatory and your under no obligation to do it, at all. However- I highly recommend it! I include the shoot into the package for free because I think it’s a great way to have a sort of trail run before your big day, especially if you're camera shy!! It’s fun, relaxed and there's absolutely no cheesy posing, that's a promise! It's also a great way for me to get to know you both a little better and helps me to map out your wedding photography in a way that suits you both. And, as I don’t charge for the shoot, there is no discount if you decide to pass on it. So you may as well give it a try!
How soon would we get to see our pictures?
Approx 6-8 weeks after your wedding your images will be available to see in the Online Viewing Gallery. Your full wedding package will then be sent out to you within a week of you selecting your prints. If you’re adding a Photobook to your package then this will take longer, the lead time will depend on the season.
Who owns the Copyright?
As the photographer I own the copyright to the images. I do, however, provide all clients with full printing and sharing rights so that you can print and share your wedding pictures until your hearts content! That said, just promise me one thing....don't print them off your home printer!! No!!! Very bad!! The images will not turn out anywhere near the quality that they should and I can recommend plenty of amazing professional printing services that will provide you with lovely prints that will really do your beautiful wedding pictures justice.
Do you offer a half day package?
I’m afraid not… I love telling the story of your wedding day and I genuinely believe that the best way to do that is to be there from start to finish.
Do you offer any discounts?
From time to time I am able to offer discounts but this is entirely dependent on my schedule & availability.
Are you Insured?
Yes- I'm fully insured! Some venue's may require proof of this and I'm more than happy to provide it upon request.
