There is so much to think about when planning a wedding, here are some of my most Frequently Asked Questions answered here for your convenience
Where will you travel to, will you travel overseas?
Absolutely! I can provide a bespoke quotation for wedding photography anywhere in the world. The quoted price will include all my travel expenses and a validity period (due to fluctuating flight prices).
I can't find any prices on your website. How much do you charge?
I provide tailor-made quotations based on the travel costs, required coverage and the size of the wedding. It is hard for me to give you a set price when there are so many variables to consider.
What wedding photography packages do you offer?
I do not have any fixed packages. Your wedding is unique and tailored to you and so is your wedding photography. I can shoot anywhere between three and fifteen hours per day, depending on your required coverage and budget. There are also optional extras to consider when requesting your price including an additional photographer and/or a videographer. The photographers and videographers whom I work with our industry professionals, whose creativy support and reflect a similar style to my own.
Are travel costs included in my quotation?
I will always include my travel expenses within the quoted price which you are given. For weddings which are outside of Europe and further afield, quotations will be valid for a more limited time period to ensure that fluctuating flight prices are budgeted for correctly.
Can we speak to you before committing to book?
Of course, you can. I'd love to talk to you about your wedding photography requirements. I am free to chat to clients both on the phone or though online video calling, whichever works best for you, just send me a message and we can arrange a convenient time.
How do we know if you are available for our wedding and secure the date?
The best way to find out if I am available for your wedding day is to complete the wedding enquiry form or send me a message with all the details of your special day. Once availability has been confirmed, I will send you a booking form and a wedding photography agreement to sign and return to me. Upon completion of this and receipt of your deposit (normally 25%) the date will be secured, and we can start planning! For dates which I am not available, I can always recommend a handful of highly skilled wedding photographers who I work with.
How long will you shoot for?
I always prefer to spend the whole day shooting as this enables me to capture as many memories as possible to build your beautiful story from. But often couples only require coverage for a few hours, or half a day, the duration is totally up to you.
How many photos will I receive?
This depends roughly on the number of hours that you require me to shoot for but I become so absorbed into documenting your wedding that is not uncommon for couples to receive anywhere between 300 - 500 fully edited photos. I whittle this down from around 3,000 images actually taken on the day!
Do you take traditional group shots and/or posed photos?
I can absolutely take group and posed photos for you if that is what you would like. Overall my preferred style is a more natural and subtle approach, because I believe that this provides the most genuine photographs, but I am fully flexible to document your wedding as you would like it to be remembered. I will normally try to steal the two of you for at least an hour or more (totally up to you), after the ceremony, to take some personal and romantic shots. If you would like a particular set of group shots then I normally ask for a list to be provided (before the day) with the names of the family/friends that you would like to be gathered together for these photos.
When will I receive my images?
Usually I am just as excited to share them with you, as you are to see them and I always endeavor to send a few sneaky images to the newlyweds within a few days of the wedding. I love to be able to give my couples an extra little gift before they catch that plane for their honeymoon or whilst they are sipping their first cocktail together at sunset somewhere far away. The rest of the images will follow 2 - 4 weeks later.
How will I receive my images?
We have built a special 'Client Access Area' just for you! This is a special section for the bride and groom to view and download their images from me directly. I can also send images on a USB stick if preferred and of course there are those beautiful wedding photography albums to think about!
Can friends/family view and buy images?
Yes of course, you can share your personal login to your client area with whoever you choose to, so they can view your complete album of wedding images. They can then choose to buy prints directly from me, so I can ensure that they are optimized for printing, or they may choose to print these images themselves. Alternatively if you do not wish to share your complete album then you are able to order prints directly from me on their behalf. Pricing available upon request.
Do you offer engagement and post-wedding photoshoots?
Yes I do! Adding a secondary for even tertiary shoot can help those who are nervous about being photographed feel relaxed and prepared for their big day. It also gives us another opportunity to play around with some creative ideas and make an all encompassing romantic collection complete.
