Here you will find the answers to questions I get asked the most! If there is something you’d like to know that I haven’t listed here then please drop me a line and I’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you have!
We really love your images… How do we go about booking you?
First of all, I always like to have an initial consultation with all of my couples. This doesn’t need to be in person (but totally can be if its possible) it can be done by phone or skype – Whatever works best for you. This gives us a chance to chat and you can ask any questions you might have. If you are happy with everything and would like to go ahead with the booking I will send you through an agreement and info sheet that you will need to fill out, sign and send back to me. I take a 30% deposit and this will need to be paid to confirm your booking. Once I have received the signed copy of the agreement and the deposit, your booking is officially confirmed!
Your packages have “hours of photography”. When do these start and finish?
This is entirely up to you and how your day is scheduled. I know that every wedding is different and I very much work around your day. I try to be as flexible as possible for my couples so if you have any concerns about timings let me know and I’m sure we can figure something out.
How long will we have to wait to receive our images after the wedding?
Your images should be with you 4 – 6 weeks after your wedding day. I take your photos very seriously I make sure I put the maximum amount of time and effort into making sure your images are perfect. This, understandably, takes time.
How will our images be delivered?
Once I have processed all of the images from your day and made them look amazing for you I will upload them to your own private gallery. Don’t worry once the photos have been uploaded I will send you a link to the gallery and all the information you need to login to it! From this gallery, you can view all of your lovely photos from the day, share the gallery or individual images with friends and family and order prints, canvases and other keepsakes! You will then receive all of your images on a USB memory drive within a presentation box! On the memory drive, you will find 4 copies of each image. Full Resolution versions of each image in Colour and Black/White. These are images are best used for printing or if you wish to enlarge your images on canvas or large prints. These images will be large file sizes so no appropriate for uploading to social media sites such as Facebook or Instagram. The final set of images are “Web Ready” versions of each image in Colour and Black/White. These are smaller file sizes and better use for online share, uploading to social media.
Our venue is asking about Insurance??! Do you have this??
Yes, I do! Not only is all of my equipment insured but I have Public Liability Insurance of £5million and Professional Indemnity Insurance
Why don’t you have any prices on your website?
I know that there is no “one size fits all” package out there so I would rather provide you with a customized quote to exactly fit your needs. My prices range from £1,000 – £3,500 and all of my packages can be tailored to your day! All of my packages include:
A password protected online gallery,
High-resolution digital downloads of all of your images
Travel & Accommodation (UK only)
All images delivered to you on USB in both Colour and Black & White
Do we need to feed you on the day?
Obviously, that would be amazing if you can but I know that the price per meal can be pretty expensive (especially if you get the glazed scallops) so I totally understand if it is not possible to provide me with an extra 3-course meal. Caterers will often do a “Crew meal” of something simple that they give to the waiting staff, band, photographer etc and it really is appreciated if you are able to provide me with some form of hot food. However, I can bring a sandwich and a bag of skips with me if necessary.
Do you bring backups in case your camera breaks?
Yes, yes and yes! I am a belt and braces kind of guy (I don’t actually wear a belt and braces at the wedding though) so I bring a total of 4 cameras with me. I bring 2 full frame cameras that I will use throughout your day. Why do I use 2?? Several reasons really… not only does it mean that if one camera goes down I have a 2nd on me ready to go at all times but I can also have both zoom and wide angle lenses available so I will never miss a moment changing a lens! I also bring a 3rd camera which lives permanently in my bag for the very unlikely scenario that both cameras go down. It has never happened to me and I always make sure I have the best quality equipment so it doesn’t happen to me! Finally, I have what I like to call my “end of the world” contingency plan – I bring with me my trusted analogue Canon AE1 Film camera! Now don’t worry I don’t plan to shoot any of your wedding with it BUT if all the electronic devices in the world just so happened to stop working on your wedding day, that little camera would still be able to capture images all day long!
I see you that you are based in the London/Surrey area… What other areas do you cover?
I have no limits or boundaries of where I work. I am more than happy to travel all over the world to photograph weddings (especially if it’s somewhere nice and warm!). All of my wedding packages include free travel within 50 miles of GU1 (Which is Guildford, Surrey). If your wedding is outside of this area I will charge an additional fee for mileage. This is charged at 45p per mile. If you would like to know what my travel fee for your venue just drop me a line with the venue address (including postcode please) and I will be more than happy to give you a quote.
