- Frequent questions -
how long have you been doing this for?
I've been a wedding photographer for 6 years now and behind the camera for more than 10, freelancing most of the way; it all started many moons ago at Chesterfield college and it’s continued to grow from there!
Will You be with us on The Day?
Indeed I will. I generally work by myself, it's the way I prefer it. This way I can work without distraction and capture the story of your day as everything happens. I do occasionally work with a 2nd photographer as well when couple's are after a little extra coverage.
Do you only do a full-day package?
Nope! I also create bespoke packages tailored to suit most coverage lengths :)
I'm terrible at having my photo taken, will we have to pose?
Forget about the traditional 'everyone say cheese!' weddings photos you've seen. My style is the complete opposite and focuses on real smiles, belly laughs and capturing real moments. One of my couples recently commented that they wanted their photos to feel as though they were 'a guest at their own wedding', which I felt was a perfect way to describe the natural feel of my photos! When I steal you both away for our little photo session, I might give the occasional cue like 'hold hands and walk over there in the sunlight together', and then simply capture what comes naturally to you!
When will you arrive on the day?
I usually arrive a few hours before the ceremony for some relaxed shots of everyone getting ready, and to get revved up for the day. In the weeks before the wedding, I'll ask who you'd like me to be with in the morning, unless you're both getting ready at the same location or live next door to each other! Going back and forth between locations first thing can quickly get stressful, so I just prefer to stay in one location to keep everything chill and flowing smoothly.
When will you leave us?
I generally leave about 30-45mins to an hour after the first dance, after everyone's started throwing their best shapes on the dance floor! This gives me the chance to get some all-important party shots to complete your story.
how will you get around on the day?
Normally I'll hop in your wedding car and ride shotgun, or I'd travel with a guest so I can make sure I'm always on time to capture you throughout the day, Plus it's always great to capture those 'riding to the reception' shots when you're all buzzed from the ceremony, glass of bubbles in hand, of course!!
Do we give you a shot-list?
Personally I don't follow shot-lists as they can get lengthy and cumbersome really quickly and really distract me from what’s happening around me, I always capture the key moments of the day, so I'll likely know 95% of the shots you want off-by-heart already!
Of course if you have any shots in mind I'll definitely not know to get, like of a certain family member, for example, we can absolutely capture these throughout the day :)
How many images will we get?
Every wedding is different and anything can happen, so an exact number is always really hard to pinpoint! In my full day package, I hand my couples a minimum of 350 finished images, and for shorter coverage lengths this will be a little less (however I almost always end up giving WAAY more). These will all be stored both in your private online gallery and, if you’ve chosen a full day’s photography, a USB stick.
Will we get the unedited shots from the day?
No - I hand my couples a finished, hand-edited story of their day.
When will our images be ready?
All being well, it normally takes 2-3 weeks for me to work on your images and put together your story, though this can be longer during my busy months. You'll receive an email inviting you to your private gallery, and a package in the post with a USB stick full of your images. This will contain both web-friendly images for sharing online/emailing, and high-res versions so you can print, print, print!
Are travel costs included?
I do include all my travel costs within the UK mainland unless I need to hop on a plane to get to your destination. If you're big day is particularly far-out, or overseas, we'll work out a bespoke quote including travel and any accommodation if it’s needed for me to be there on time on for your wedding,
If your wedding is over a few days for example, or somewhere very remote, your quote will be tailor made to include everything necessary.
Do you do albums?
Yes! I work with Blurb albums who create beautiful hard-back storybooks in varying sizes, quality and finishes. Mine start at £200 for an 18x18cm hardback storybook.
If albums aren't for you, please ask about my prints! And the hi res images you'll receive on your USB will also allow you print wherever and however many you like!
Do we need to set aside food for you?
I'm a massive foodie, and one of the things I enjoy asking couples most is 'what food are you having?!' I always pack a bite (to nibble on at quiet points during the day) and to have during your meal. Though if you're a fellow foodie like me and you're super excited about the food you'll be having, I'll NEVER say no to a few tasty morsels!
How do I book?
Simple! Fill in my contact form here or hit the button below; include some juicy details about your day and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
I require a £250 deposit which will secure your day in my books no matter when your big day is. If it happens that I'm already booked, I'll always try and help you out with a list of horribly talented wedding photographer friends of mine :)
