Everyone has a few questions, hopefully this might clear a few of them up!
What is your shooting style?
Think natural light, negative space and and a dark, analogue feel with a cinematic twist.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I live just outside of Newcastle in the North East of England. And I most certainly do, I have 1 flat rate for all UK weddings – Thinking about getting married abroad? Get in touch and we can put together a bespoke package.
Do you enjoy what you do?
I wouldn’t change it for the world! I absolutely adore my job and honestly couldn’t think of anything better than being involved in the happiest days of peoples lives.
When should we get in touch?
I’d recommend getting in touch ASAP, I accept bookings up to 2 years in advance and normally go into a year fully booked.
How do we receive our images?
I provide images on USB in a wooden presentation box as well as an online gallery.
How many images can I expect?
This totally varies on your day, I’m a firm believer in quality over quantity – on an average wedding I deliver between 350-500 final images.
We’d love to book, how do we go about it?
I ask for a non-refundable £500 booking fee and a signed booking form to reserve a date and remove it from my availability.
Can we reserve a date without a booking fee?
Unfortunatley not, due to the amount of enquiries I receive on a weekly basis, I cannot reserve a date without a booking fee.
When can we expect our images?
Due to the nature of my work this varies, however you will always have your gallery within 12 weeks.
Are you insured?
100%, professional indemnity and public liability. I wouldn’t dream of running a business without this.
Do you work by yourself?
I do! However if you would like a second photographer on the day I have many professional photographers I work with regularly.
How long do we have you on the day?
I work up to 10 hours on the day, additional hours can be added but need to be booked in advance.
Can you recommend any other wedding suppliers?
100%! I’m lucky enough to work alongside some super talented folk and would love to share them with you. Whether you need help with a videographer, florist, stylist or decorations, I will happily give you a list of trusted businesses.
Do you photograph elopements?
Yes! Totally, similar to weddings I have 1 flat rate for UK elopements.
On the day, we’d love some shots of our family. Is this something you can do?
Of course. Nothing is more important than capturing family members, although I shoot candid, natural moments for the majority of the day I always allocate time for this, its super important.
What if you are ill on the day?
This has never happened but there’s nothing a paracetamol won’’t fix, if the worst comes to the worst I have a very close knit group of photographers and friends who I trust very much and have a very similar style who could fill in.
When is the final payment due?
I ask that the final balance is settled no later than 4 weeks prior to the wedding day.
Can we meet up before the day?
Where possible yes, I’d love to meet you! During busy periods of the year or if its not possible I’d love to set up a Skype or a phone call to talk details.
