FAQ
I've put together a list of frequently asked questions to help you with your decision making.  I'm always more than happy to answer any question you may like to ask but here are a few for starters

Hey there!

Curious about my journey as a wedding photographer? I gained my degree in photography back in '99, moved back to Herefordshire and I shot my very first wedding gig in 2000. Over the years, I've racked up quite a bit of experience, earning a Licentiate with the British Institute of Professional Photography in 2007 and later becoming an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society in 2011. You can learn more about my background on the About page.

Wondering about the packages I offer? I've got four different photography coverages, ranging from a quarter day to a full day. You can customize your package by adding extras like a USB or an album. Check out all the details on the pricing page of my website. Oh, and just so you know, all my prices include travel within England and Wales.

 

Got questions about securing the date or when the balance is due? For starters to lock in your date, I just need a £200 deposit. You can pay the rest of the balance a month before your big day.

Curious about how many photos you'll get? I don't put a strict limit on the number of shots I take, but I also don't believe in overwhelming you with thousands of photos. Typically, you can expect around 300 images for a quarter day and add about 200 more for each additional section of the day. Of course, the total can vary based on factors like the size of your guest list, the weather, and the vibe of your day.

Wondering about second photographers? The simplest answer is I prefer flying solo because it allows me to keep track of everything and remain discreet. Plus, you can trust that all the photos you get will be mine.

Curious about how you'll receive your photos? You'll have your very own password-protected online gallery where you can download images for free. You'll also get a USB with all your images in both color and black & white. Or if you prefer, you can opt to download them in high resolution directly to your system.

Have questions about insurance? I've got you covered with full public liability and professional indemnity insurance.

What's my photography style? I like to mix candid, documentary, and emotive portraiture. I'm also a fan of those epic big sky portraits, but I don't forget the importance of capturing those group shots with your nearest and dearest.

Curious about the size of weddings I've shot? I've photographed everything from intimate gatherings with just two guests to larger celebrations with around 200 attendees. I'm comfortable with all sizes!

 

Concerned about equipment backup? I carry two of everything, so no need to worry about any technical hiccups ruining your day.

Want to know how many weddings I've shot? I've been behind the lens for over 700 weddings to date!

Wondering about color correction? I shoot all your images in RAW format and then tweak them in post-production to ensure the colors and tones are just right.

Thinking about engagement photography? I highly recommend it! A portrait session before your wedding can help build confidence and make you feel more relaxed on your big day. Plus, I make sure to keep these sessions unique so you won't feel like you're repeating your wedding photos.

Interested in group photographs? Despite the recent trend to skip them, I'm a fan. It's a chance for me to interact with your guests, and I always aim to make them efficient and fun!

Curious about how long I stay? A full day typically covers about three hours before your ceremony until after your first dance and some solid dancing. But I'm flexible and can adjust based on your needs.

Can you request specific shots? Absolutely! To help in your decision making I have a suggested list of group photos that you can chop and change as you need.  We'll also have a good chat before your day about any must-have shots you want, so don't be shy about letting me know what's important to you.

Want to see full wedding galleries? While I don't offer open access to full weddings for privacy reasons, I'm happy to provide access upon request if you want to see a specific venue or style.

Thinking about a destination wedding? Count me in! I've traveled far and wide for weddings, from New Zealand to Croatia, and I'm always up for an adventure.

Curious about what happens after booking? Once you're ready to secure your date, just pay the £200 deposit via BACS or PayPal and fill out the online booking form. After that, I'm here to help with any wedding planning questions you may have. About a month before your big day, I'll touch base to go over final details and collect the balance for your photography.

Concerned about what happens if I get sick? Don't worry! I'm part of several online networks specifically designed to find a replacement photographer in case of emergencies. I'll handle all the post-production work to ensure the resulting images are as close to my style as possible.

Wondering about food? While I always appreciate a good meal, I understand if you'd rather not pay an inflated rate for it. Just let me know what's happening, and I'll come prepared!

Curious about what I wear? Not so frequently asked but you may be worried I'll rock up in joggers!  You can always spot me in a black suit with a black shirt and leather shoes. Occasionally, I'll be joined by videographers sporting a more casual look, which always surprises me!

Thinking about how long it'll take to get your photos? I aim to have everything ready within two weeks of your wedding day.

If you have any other questions or need advice on your wedding day logistics, feel free to reach out anytime. I'm here to help!
