HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING WEDDINGS?
Since 2013. I started out second shooting and shot my first solo wedding in 2014. I'm now lucky enough that it is my full time job.
HOW ARE OUR IMAGES SUPPLIED?
Images are supplied via an online Pixieset gallery. In addition you will receive a gorgeous mini accordion album produced with images from your sneak peek with "The Digital One" package, and beautiful fine art wedding albums with the other 2 packages.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE GET?
This completely depends on your day, how much is going on, what things you have planned for your guests, how many people are there etc. The more things you have going on, the more photos you'll get. The figure is usually around 600 but it is hard to guesstimate!
HOW LONG WILL I NEED TO WAIT FOR MY IMAGES?
I aim to get sneak peeks out within 48 hours. You can expect to receive the rest of your images within 6-8 weeks (the latter in the peak season).
WHAT USAGE DO WE HAVE?
As with all photographs, I retain the copyright on MY images, but you will have full usage. You can print, share, do whatever you like with them (other than editing them yourself). All I ask is that if sending to a magazine, other supplier, blog or newspaper that they credit me with website and/or instagram handle.
WE HATE HAVING OUR PHOTO TAKEN & DON'T WANT A LOT OF POSED SHOTS. IS THAT A PROBLEM?
Not at all. For most of the day I'll work really naturally and unobtrusively and you'll be too busy having the time of your lives to notice me too much! I think it's much more valuable to capture the actual story of the day & the real moments, than directing things. I do like to have a small amount of time away from your guests to take some couple shots, but I do these in a really painless, fun and natural way. eg. 'hold hands and walk over there' while I snap away I'm good at reading people and making them relax - it won't work if you're not enjoying yourselves so that's a key part of my job!
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU'RE SICK?
If 2020/2021 taught us anything it's that us wedding photographers have each others back! I'm lucky to be part of both a national & local network of photographers who support each other by jumping in when one of us are sick! You'll have the choice of handing over the whole thing to another photographer or they can shoot and I can edit (both options at no additional cost to yourselves). Either way, your day will be covered but this is an absolute last resort!
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes! Venues often ask to see suppliers insurance details. I am fully insured (Public Liability & Personal Indemnity).
HOW DO WE SECURE OUR DATE?
Yayyy! If you'd like to secure your date I ask for a £250 booking fee (which comes off your final balance), I'll send this out with your contract and once this is complete you're in my diary! I ask for the final payment 4 weeks priorate your wedding day.
