FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Can we meet up before we book you?
Of course you can! Whether its because you want to see for yourselves just how passionate about photography I am, or you’d feel more relaxed on your wedding day if we’re not strangers, meeting beforehand can be a great idea! You can have a meeting with me at my office in Nottingham, or if that's too far, or you're just too busy, we can always arrange a FaceTime / Skype chat. Mon - Friday // 10am - 8pm
Q. Can you pencil us in / hold our date?
Unfortunately no. Due to the number of enquiries I receive your wedding date is only secure once you've paid the deposit and returned the booking form. Weddings are booked on a first-come, first-served basis.
Q. How much is the deposit?
£500 - This is a non-refundable deposit and is deducted from your final balance.
Q. How long do we have to wait for the photos?
I'm very passionate about the quality of my photographs, therefore I spend a lot of time editing your images to a tip-top standard. It normally takes 6-8 weeks to finish the images and get them sent to you.
Q. Have you won any awards?
Yes. Lots! I just don’t feel the need to brag about them or plaster them all over my website.
Q. How far will you travel?
I have a passport and I have a car, therefore I'll travel anywhere! If your wedding is in England I don't charge anything for my travel to or from a wedding venue. If it is elsewhere in the UK (or further / destination weddings) a reasonable fee will be added.
Q. Will you visit the venue before the wedding day?
I don't normally. The spontaneous and candid way that I photograph weddings means that it's not really important for me to see the venue. I nearly always turn up to a venue with plenty of time to have a good look around. And sometimes I arrive the night before. If it's a venue I've never photographed at before, and you really want me to have a look around with you, we could always do the pre-wedding shoot there.
Q. Can you make an album for us?
I'm afraid I no longer make albums for couples. I can however recommend an excellent supplier.
Q. Do we have to feed you?
I don't insist on it. But its very much appreciated if you do. We all work better when we’re not hungry right?! It doesn't have to be anything fancy, a bar snack will be fine. It can be a really long day, sometimes 12+ hours on the go, so a snack to stop me from passing out would be awesome! If you can't supply a meal for me, please let me know so I can either bring a pack-up, or find somewhere near the venue to get a meal.
Q. What is your shooting style?
I would describe my style of shooting as documentary wedding photography… relaxed... stylish... creative... and fun!
Q. How do we receive the images?
All your edited photos will be uploaded to a password protected online gallery approx. 6-8 weeks after your wedding date.
Q. We want lots of group photos, you can do that right?
I don't mind doing a couple of close family group shots, and of course ones of you with the bridesmaids or best man/ushers, but if you're after a photographer that is going to work off a long list of group snaps, then I'm definitely not the photographer for you.
Q. How do we pay the final balance?
The balance needs to be paid at least 4 weeks before the wedding date, and is a bank transfer to my account.
Q. Are you insured?
Yes. For both public liability and professional indemnity.
Q. We need two photographers, can you help us with that?
Yes. Anna, my assistant can accompany me on weddings. Just let me know at the time of booking me why you might require two photographers and we'll sort it for an additional £500.
Q. Can we really do whatever we want with the images?
Yes. You've paid me to be your photographer, you've got the photos, so feel free to print them off, share them with family and friends, or make your own album.
Q. I look really drunk in lots of the photos... why is that?
Maybe it's because you were having fun... AND were actually really drunk!
