Frequently asked questions
Do you travel ?
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. Just get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.
If you'd like to know if your wedding venue is likely to be in my free travel zone, check out these handy maps!
Can I book you for a short time?
If you're looking for a short amount of coverage, I have a mini 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 just 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 artistic standard. Every photo has my custom look applied, and is adjusted for things like brightness and optimal color.
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 fill in my booking form and provide a 25% deposit. Dates cannot be reserved until these have been received. You can find my booking form here.
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 £150-£250.
Do you provide albums?
Albums are not included in my basic packages, however I’d be delighted to design one for you. They’re fantastic keepsakes to commemorate your day and can be made in a range of sizes to suit you. I also give you choice over which images are included so you know your favourites are in there!
Do you do 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.
Do I have to print things through you - e.g. physical photos, canvases, albums...?
A lot of photographers do the watermark thing or force you to print through the studio of their choosing – I’m not a big fan of that route. I would be delighted to design you an album or organise the printing of images or canvases, but the way I see it, you’ve invested a lot in your photos, so you should have the freedom to do what you want with them for personal use. If you’d rather design your own album, go for it, though it is very time-consuming! You will also find the companies available to professional photographers offer a much higher quality of finish and more options than, for example, Snapfish or Boots.
How long will it be until I get my photos?
I think year long turnaround times are crazy, and push to have your photographs finished within eight weeks. I also always provide a small preview gallery within a fortnight of the wedding so you can have a sneak-peek at some photos earlier!
That said backlogs in busy summer months can mean a LOT of editing, and I never want to compromise on quality in a rush to finish faster, so circumstances my 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.
Can I still have the traditional group/portrait/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 or the style I primarily work in. If your dream is hundreds of perfectly-posed shots with everyone staring into the camera, 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.
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.
