How long have you been a photographer
I started working for another photographer in June 2006, with absolutely no prior experience. I worked as a second shooter for him at weddings before leaving to start up on my own in January 2009.

Are you insured
Yes I have Public Liability up to and Professional Indemnity up to

Who will shoot our wedding
Always me!

What if you’re ill
To date, I have never had to arrange cover for a wedding. However, I am only human! I am part of several large and active groups of wedding photographers covering the UK;¬†If I were to be unable to shoot your wedding, I would put out an SOS in these groups and someone would be able to step in. I’ve seen it happen for other photographers who have been in a sticky situation, so I have every faith that I could arrange cover.

Do you shoot formal family group shots and detail shots
Of course! Though I don’t go overboard on either of them. My main aim is to record your day¬†as a photojournalist, so I dedicate more time to photographing the goings on than setting things up.

I recommend no more than 8-10 group shots to keep the day running smoothly.

As for details, I always find time to shoot the dress/shoes/table decoration etc.

You can see a selection of group portraits here

And some detail shots here

What if it rains
This one’s easy – we take pictures regardless! We either embrace the rain, and use umbrellas/wellies/sheltered spots etc. or we make use of the interior space of the venue. I love using flash to create interesting lighting, and sometimes playing around inside the venue can create more striking shots than can be had outside.

How long do you stay on a wedding day
Usually around 12 hours. I tend to start at 10.30am and finish at 10.30pm as a rough guide. All days are different though, and I will discuss this with you before hand.

How do we book
It’s easy and can all be done online! Once you’ve been in touch with me, I will setup a client booking page for you and email you the link. From here, you can view prices and options,¬†select the package you want to go with, fill in some initial details, sign an electronic contract and pay your deposit. Just so you know, the deposit is ¬£300. To confirm your date with me, the deposit must be paid and the¬†contract signed.

Do you need fed
That would be lovely! Thanks!

How long does it take to get our photos
I always try to get a preview of a few images to you in the week after the wedding. Your full gallery will take longer, and in busy season can take up to 8 weeks.

How many images do we get
Usually around 1000, all fully edited and ready to print
