Find the answer here or if you don't see it, please get in touch! 

Do You Do Wedding Photography Full Or Part Time?

I am a full-time wedding photographer - it really is the best job in the world!

Do You Edit The Images? 

Yes - I personally hand edit each image for you 

How Much Is The Deposit? 

For weddings I take a 50% deposit to secure the date and the balance is due 3 months before your wedding. If it is easier, I am happy to put a payment plan together with you! 

When Do You Deliver The Images? 

If you like, I can normally deliver a sneak peek within a couple of days of your wedding so that you can share some of the highlights with your friends and family 

I normally deliver the rest of the images between 2 and 6 weeks after your big day via a gallery on my website for download 

Do You Have Your Own Studio? 

I am a full-time wedding photographer and so I don't need a studio as my business takes me out and about to lots of wonderful venues and locations 

Are You Insured And Do You Have Spare Equipment With You? 

I have public liability and professional indemnity insurance … my equipment is also insured and I carry spares of everything with me on a wedding day - just in case! 

Do You Meet Before Booking? 

It really comes down to what you would like! I really enjoy discussing your plans and how we can make beautiful photos for you either before you book or afterwards. If you are based nearby, we can talk things through over a coffee or a drink. If you are further away, then a facetime or skype chat might be a better idea for you.

Can We Discuss The Photos Before The Wedding? 

Yes, I enjoy meeting my clients ahead of their wedding - it is one of the reasons I include a free engagement shoot in most of my packages. Talking through the big day, working out timings and developing your plans is always a delight and time well spent ahead of your wedding. If you prefer to do this face to face or over the phone/through skype or via emails etc, then that is also great

What Does Your Wedding Procedure Look Like?

Have a look at this page describing the different stages of wedding photography 

Can You Provide A 2nd Photographer? 

Yes, I work with a variety of 2nd photographers – further details are available on my prices page and the price depends on how long we will need the second shooter for and what we would like them to cover

Do You Take Group/Posed/Set Up Shots? 

Yes, I really enjoy making group and couple shots – I try to move through this as quickly and efficiently as possible so that we can keep recording the story of your day alongside them … after all, you don’t want the photography to dominate your day! 

How Many Images Will You Send Us? 

I find 400-500 pictures tells the story of an ‘all day’ wedding – each image is individually edited and produced with a variety of different looks for you – so you could have nearly 3000 images in your final collection 

Who Owns The Photos? 

I retain the copyright of the images we make and license you to print and share them with friends, family and guests - you are just not allowed to use them for commercial gain without prior arrangement with me!

How Long Will Our Album Take Once Ordered? 

Between 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the time of year
