FAQ's

  

Are you a full-time Wedding Photographer?

Yes, this is my full-time job other than being a Dad! Every wedding I shoot is my only project at that time. I'll give it my full attention to ensure you the best experience I can from start to finish!



What’s your price?

My day rate for a full wedding is £1,200 and covers from a few hours before the ceremony to capture bridal preparation right the way through to 30 minutes to an hour after first dances in the evening and includes a final collection of at least 600-800 images of which you receive the entire gallery with no additional fees.


I offer more flexible pricing should you wish to only cover part of the day. Feel free to contact me for a quote.



Do you do half days/partial coverage?

At this moment in time I can offer partial coverage yes! My pricing is totally flexible to match what you need me for so feel free to ask!



How long do you take photos on the day?

For a full day as mentioned above I will start a few hours before the ceremony to capture bridal prep, then I work throughout the day until 30 minutes to an hour after first dances.

 
 

What's your style?

Most of your final collection will be taken in a "documentary storytelling" method but my style is more natural, I capture mostly candid shots throughout the day to ensure the emotions are true and the memories are genuine. I'll do the staged moments/group shots quickly and professionally and throughout the day we'll go off to get some more unique and stunning portraits together in a more high-end fashion/art photography style. 


Short answer: My style is a combination of many styles!



Can we see a full gallery?

Of course! The collections on my social media and website are only a small part of what my clients receive so feel free to ask to see more or if you book a free consultation, I’ll happy show off some of my previous work in person!



What if timings change or the day overruns?

It happens! There’s no need to worry, I don’t hold you to any strict timing, I’m here from beginning to end no matter the times so you just relax and enjoy the day!

 
 

How many photo's will I get?

For a full day shoot you will receive a minimum of 600-800 images, but the final collection depends on many variables.



Do we get all the photos?

Yes absolutely! I don’t bother with tiered packages or complicated pricing, what I capture is what you get, once I’ve curated and edited your final gallery I’ll send it to you in its entirety in full original quality, from there they’re yours to do with as you please!



How do you deliver your photos?

Upon completion of the editing you will be given exclusive access to your own personal online gallery where all your photos will be available to view, share and download in full original quality.
 

You will also be sent a personalised keepsake box with a USB stick containing the entire gallery.



How much work is involved in covering a wedding?

From our initial chat/consultation right the way through to editing and delivery of your photos it typically takes around 40+hrs of work.



How long will it take to get the photos?

I’ll aim to get everything to you within 3-4 weeks but if you need a few shots for thank you cards etc. let me know and I can send you some early.



Are you insured?

I am fully insured for public liability, professional indemnity and all my business equipment for your peace of mind as well as mine!



Do you need food on the day?

It’s entirely up to you but not at all necessary, I am perfectly fine to bring a packed lunch!

If you have any other questions or want to book a consultation feel free to contact me!
