HOW LONG DO YOU USUALLY STAY ON THE DAY?
As long as you like! Typically, I like to arrive a couple of hours before the ceremony, and stay until just after the first dance to ensure nothing is missed. My full day coverage includes 9 hours of coverage, from bridal prep, until the first dance, and is included as part of my standard package. For any additional hours coverage beyond the standard 9 hours, a £95 charge will be applied per hour.
HOW LONG AFTER THE WEDDING DO WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WE GET TO SEE THE IMAGES?
Trust me, I am just as excited to share your photos with you as you are to receive them! So after every wedding, I send over a little “sneak peek” the very next day for you to get excited over and share with your friends and family. Then, approximately 4 weeks after the wedding, your full private online gallery will be ready and delivered to you via email. The images in your online gallery are all high res, so are perfect for using to make thankyou cards or sharing on your social platforms in the meantime before your USB arrives. The USB then usually takes an additional 2 weeks to arrive along with your chosen prints, once a selection for prints has been made.
DO YOU OFFER HALF DAY SERVICES?
Of course – I appreciate every wedding is different so I carefully create a plan which is tailored to you and your needs. Please enquire for further details.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use 2 professional camera bodies, both Canon 5D mark IVs, which are both regularly serviced and upgraded when required. I use a variety of top range prime lenses and indoor flash equipment for receptions or when natural light is very limited.
WILL THE PHOTOS BE EDITED?
Yep, all the photos you receive on your USB will be edited in my signature working style.
ARE YOU INSURED AND BACKED UP?
Absolutely. Keeping your images safe will always be my number one top priority! I shoot on dual cards in each camera body throughout the day, so I have a duplicate back up card should one fail for any reason. My cards are kept on my person at all times throughout the day too. I have separate hard drives for backing up your images once I’m back home and I NEVER delete any files until your gallery has been delivered in full and you have .
All my equipment is insured and I have full Public Liablity and Professional Indemnity Insurance too for your peace of mind. If your venue require my insurance documents please do get in touch and I’ll be happy to provide them.
DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?
Absolutely! I am currently working with a wonderful album supplier, who are renowned for their stunning print quality and attention to detail, ensuring every album they make is of the highest standard. More info on albums can be found on my ‘What’s in the box” page under the info tab, and album brochures are available upon request.
HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE GET ON THE USB?
I select the best images from your wedding for the final selection. Full day coverage can expect to give you approx 600+ high res images.
DO YOU TRAVEL ABROAD?
Yes! I would love to travel for your European Destination Wedding. Destination Weddings are charged based on my current standard pricing, plus expenses. If you are thinking about booking me for your wedding abroad, please enquire as soon as possible for more information and I would love to chat!
WHEN DO YOU REQUIRE FULL PAYMENT BY?
I require a 25% deposit of the total price upon booking, which is included in the final price and is non-refundable. The remaining balance can be paid up to 30 days before the wedding.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO WE NEED TO BOOK?
The earlier the better! I usually start taking bookings up to 2 years in advance, however, last minute bookings are always welcome! My availability varies depending on the time of year, however, cancellations can happen and I rarely have to turn clients away, if key dates are booked well in advance or if dates can be flexible.
WHAT DO YOU WEAR ON THE DAY?
Smart, usually all black. I take a professional approach on my image, but comfort is also important!
