CAN I SEE A PORTFOLIO OR A COUPLE OF EXAMPLES OF COMPLETE WEDDINGS?
Yes of course, I always have full galleries available for you to view! It's important for you to see the whole wedding day not just select parts from it!
DO YOU TRAVEL TO THE VENUE BEFORE THE WEDDING TO FAMILIARISE YOURSELF WITH IT?
As long as it's a UK wedding venue I will always try and travel to the venue to see it before your wedding date. I also offer the option to have your engagement shoot taken at your wedding venue as well so we can look round together!
If for some reason I'm not able to see the venue beforehand I always make sure to research it online as much as possible before your date and I always aim to arrive at least an hour early to allow myself time to look around.
DO YOU HAVE PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE AND INDEMNITY?
Yes, yes and absolutely yes! I wouldn't dream of turning up to photograph a wedding without it for fear that something happened! I always keep a copy on me as proof just in case which I'm more than happy to show to my clients!
DO YOU HAVE A PHOTOGRAPHY DEGREE?
Although you do not necessarily need any specific academic qualifications to be a wedding photographer I am proud to say that I do have a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Photography :)
WILL MY WEDDING BE THE ONLY ONE YOU ARE SHOOTING ON THAT PARTICULAR DAY?
Always. I think it would be very irresponsible to take on more than one job in a day! Weddings are a mammoth task and very rarely run on schedule! I will only ever accept one wedding a day and only accept less than 20 a year to ensure that my couples are getting my undivided attention.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE UNWELL AND UNABLE TO MAKE IT ON THE DAY?
If for whatever reason I was unable to attend your wedding then I would make it my mission to find a suitable replacement with a similar style to mine. I work with a network of professional wedding photographers who are able to cover weddings within short notice. (But just to put your mind at ease, I've never had to cancel a wedding! It would take A LOT to stop me!)
HOW LONG AFTER THE WEDDING SHOULD IT TAKE TO SEE MY PHOTOS?
I tell my couples that the waiting period in high season (May-Sept) the average waiting time is between 6-8 weeks. I edit all my own images to the highest possible standard, which does take time but my couples
are always worth it! I'll make sure to keep you updated with sneak previews whilst I'm editing as well.
WHAT DO YOU WEAR TO PHOTOGRAPH OUR WEDDING DAY?
On your wedding day I try and blend in as much as possible whilst still being able to work efficiently and comfortably! So I'll always be dressed smartly with a pair of comfortable black shoes for all the running around and climbing that I get up to!
DO YOU OFFER A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
Yes! A second photographer means you get another view of your wedding photography and extra photos! Whether that be coverage of your partner getting ready in the morning with their chosen people (trust me, it's almost worth it just to see what they get up to on the morning!) or even if you just want those extra couple of candid photos at the reception!
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
All of my second photographers are also professional wedding photographers that I know and have worked with before. They are each selected by me as per your requirements so that there is no difference in photographic style. If you prefer you can request whether you would like a male or female photographer.
WHAT PACKAGES DO YOU HAVE AVAILABLE?
I like to keep my pricing simple. That's why I offer three wedding collections that covers most people's needs but I also have a couple of a la carte options if you fancy ;) This can help make your package more personal to you. Further details can always be found on my Info page or you can also pop me a message here.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Absolutely! I adore travelling! I'm based near Cardiff in South Wales but I'm originally from the Midlands area in England so I am always travelling back and forth for weddings and I shoot around 50% of my weddings each year in England.
I also cover weddings abroad so if you're jetting off for your wedding make sure to get in touch for a bespoke quote!
DO YOU DO VIDEOGRAPHY?
We do offer 3-5 minute video highlights set to music which are great for couples who want video coverage of their wedding without all the fuss and added extras.
HOW DOES BOOKING WITH YOU WORK?
The booking process with me is really simple, I always like to have an informal consultation first with couples before they book so that we can chat more in person and so that I can learn more about your wedding day plans!
After that I'll send out your booking forms and invoice for your booking fee and reserve your date for two weeks from your initial enquiry.
Due to the amount of enquiries I receive I cannot hold any date for longer than two weeks and no date is confirmed without a signed contract and booking fee.
HOW DO WE GET IN CONTACT WITH YOU?
It's super easy to get in touch with me! The best way is via my website. Simply by clicking here.
You can also email me directly, phone or leave me a message via social media! I try to respond to all messages within 24 hours of receiving them. If you don't hear back within 24 hours make sure to check your spam/junk folder.
I'm always super excited to chat to couples about their wedding plans!
