How soon do I need to book?
As soon as possible. I only take on a limited number of weddings a year and I am usually booked 12-18months in advance.
Can we meet before we book you?
Yes, of course. Once I have confirmed that your date is available, We can arrange a time and place to meet, I’m based in Tadley Hampshire so anywhere local is Ideal. If this is not possible a call works just as well where you can ask me any questions you have and we can discuss your day.
What’s your style?
For the majority of the day, I like capturing moments as they happen with a very informal, friendly and journalistic approach. Along with this is a blend of my own creativity to create some beautiful portraits.
Do you provide photography by the hour or day?
My package is based on a full day(up to 10 hours) starting with 1-2hours of bridal prep in the morning up to the first dance. If you need more or less we can discuss and work something out to meet your needs.
Will you travel for weddings?
I love to travel anywhere in the UK and abroad. Anywhere within 50 miles of Reading is included but further afield and inside London will have additional expenses. If it is more than 2 hours travel I may require overnight accommodation the night before so I’m fresh and ready for your wedding day.
How much do you charge for a destination wedding?
The cost of shooting a wedding is the same just the additional travel and accommodation expenses.
Do we meet before the wedding?
Yes absolutely, I’m just south of Reading so anywhere local is ideal. If this isn’t possible then I find a skype call works just as well to talk through the details and then I have everything I need to rock up on the day.
Do you have a second photographer?
Yes, I can arrange a second photographer for Groom prep and for extra coverage of your day.
What happens once I have booked?
When you have paid your deposit and signed your agreement, your date is then secure and no one else can book that day. In the meantime enjoy planning your wedding day and all the details that go with it. I’m sure you will have a plenty to do! I will be in touch to plan your pre-wedding meeting a few months before your big day.
When is the final balance due?
Your final payment is due 1 month before your wedding day.
What do you need from me?
I ask for a full plan of your day along with any must-have group photos or anything you want me to pay extra attention to! Everything else I capture as I see it.
There isn’t parking at our venue, will this be a problem?
If there isn’t parking at any of the wedding locations you need to let me know at the time of booking. This may have a significant impact on time & travel on the day and will need to be planned & cost for.
Do we need to provide a meal?
Yes please, having a meal provided during the wedding breakfast at the venue allows me to fully concentrate 100% on your day and be on hand if required. Somewhere away in the bar area is fine.
What about the weather?
Unfortunately, it is the only thing that can’t be controlled. If it does rain on your day we can change the plan accordingly. We can get some photos inside or wait for the rain to pass, or better yet just embrace it and go dancing in the rain 🙂
What if your camera breaks?
Accidents can happen but don’t worry I have backups of all my equipment in case of any mishaps!
What equipment do you use?
I use Nikon cameras and a variety of lenses and flashes.
How long will it be before I receive my photos?
Photography is not just about taking pictures. All the photos will be carefully edited to make them absolutely perfect when you receive them. This can take 4-6 weeks depending on the time of year.
Can I add to my package after my deposit is paid?
Yes! Just shoot me an email with what you would like to add and I’ll make it happen. You can also come back to me anytime after your wedding if you decide you want to make an album.
