Frequently Asked Questions
Do you travel to shoot weddings further afield?
Absolutely! Travel is included within 50 miles of London SW6 and Somerset TA11. But if you’re getting married outside these areas I’d still love to photograph your wedding and I’m happy to travel for the cost of fuel (the first 50 miles is always free). Just get in touch and we can discuss your requirements. I would also LOVE to cover your destination wedding, so if you're tying the knot abroad (lucky you!) do ask me for a quote.
Can I hire you for a short time?
If you're looking for a short amount of coverage, I have an intimate package for two hours - perfect for a wedding ceremony and some photographs before and after. However, if you feel that isn't right for you, I am very happy to do you a bespoke quote to fit your requirements. Please send me a message with what you're looking for and I can quote you.
Do you edit your photos?
Post-processing is the most time intensive part of your wedding as I work hard to ensure every image meets my standard. Every photo has my custom look applied, and is adjusted for things like brightness and optimal colour. I am also happy to do minor retouching free of charge, so if you get a blemish on the day, don't worry about it! I can whip that away like it was never there.
Can I have two photographers?
If you’re interested in a second shooter to cover more of your day, that’s certainly something I can arrange. Prices will vary depending on the shooter’s rates, but it is usually around £250-£450. If you'd just like an additional person for the morning so you can have pictures of you both getting ready, this will obviously cost less.
Do you do albums?
Of course! An album is included in my Full Day+ package, but you can add on to any other package or bespoke quote as well. They’re fantastic keepsakes to commemorate your day and come in a range of sizes, with a selection of gorgeous covers and layflat pages. I also give you choice over which images are included so you know your favourites are in there!
Can I have black and white photos?
YES! The beauty of shooting in digital is that I am able to produce ALL your photos in either colour or black and white! When I am processing your photos I’d be very happy to do a black and white set if that is something you would like. A full set is an extra £100, but if you just want the odd photo in black and white, that's not a problem, I'm happy to do that free of charge.
Do you do videography?
I don't, but I know lots of awesome people who do! I would be delighted to offer recommendations, or provide a quote for a combined photography/videography package with an associate.
I'd like to book. How do I go about it?
AMAZING! I can’t wait to get to know you and are so thrilled you’ve chosen me! To secure your date I need you to do three things - fill in my booking form, sign my contract, and provide a 25% deposit. Dates cannot be reserved until these have been received. Get in touch and I'll send you the link to my online booking platform.
Can I still have the traditional group and detail shots etc?
Of course. While I specialise in documentary photography I’m more than happy to take some more traditional shots if that’s something you’d like. My approach is that it’s YOUR day, and it’s up to you.
However, I will caveat that this is not my area of speciality. If your dream is hundreds of perfectly-posed shots, or artfully-arranged flatlays of every single wedding detail, I may not be the most appropriate photographer for you. You may be more suited to a traditional-style wedding photographer and I would be happy to offer recommendations.
What happens if you are ill or can't attend?
I hope this would not occur, but, as with any supplier, it is possible an emergency or illness could prevent me from attending your wedding. In this very unlikely event, I will do my utmost to try to find a similar style replacement from my trusted network of professional wedding photographers.
How long will it be until we get our photos?
I aim to have your photographs finished within eight weeks. I also always provide a small preview gallery within around a fortnight of the wedding so you can have a sneak-peek at some photos earlier!
That said, busy summer months mean dozens upon dozens of weddings and a LOT of editing, and I never want to compromise on quality in a rush to finish faster, so circumstances may arise that prevent me from maintaining that eight week estimate. If this is the case, I will always keep you informed and work to get you your photos as quickly as possible.
