How far will you travel?
I’m based in Shropshire in the West Midlands however I’m happy to travel anywhere for weddings!
Travelling is a huge passion of mine so to me it’s a huge honour when couples from further afield ask me along to capture their day. Travel and accommodation is included in the price of your wedding photography, so you don’t have to worry about any unexpected extra costs.
Will you visit the wedding venue before the day?
Good photography all revolves around light. A spot that may have gorgeous light if I was to visit prior to your day won’t be the same as it will on your wedding day. For this reason on your big day I make sure to set aside a little time to have a scout round for beautiful areas and beautiful light for us to get those extra special photographs of just the two of you.
Do you shoot group shots?
I do! Most of your day I will be shooting in an unobtrusive, Fine Art, Documentary style. Meaning for most of the time your guests will hardly notice I’m there! I do however completely understand how important group shots are! Usually after your ceremony we set aside a bit of time to shoot a list of group shots that you will have provided me with before your day. I suggest having around 8 group shots, this means the most important people will be in them but also means you can also spend the majority of your wedding day doing the most important bit, enjoying it!
When do we need to pay the final balance?
The final balance for your Wedding Photography will be due the 1st of the Month the Month before your day. So for example, if you’re getting married on the 25th July, your remaining balance will be due on the 1st June. I do send out an email to remind you about a month before your final payment is due.
Will we need to provide you with a meal?
I am always thrilled when couples see me as a guest and invite me to join in at this part of the day to be seated with your guests. I do however completely understand wedding’s can be expensive and I wouldn’t want to add extra cost onto your day! I just ask that you let me know before your big day whether a meal will be provided, so I can bring some lunch with me if needed.
Are you insured?
I have full public liability insurance and professional indemnity insurance and only shoot with fully professional and insured equipment. I shoot with two camera bodies as standard, so if one of them was to fail I always have a back up on me at all times.
Can we meet before the wedding?
I don’t often meet couples before their day as I travel around quite a lot for weddings making time quite limited. However I’m always happy to speak to couples on the phone before they book or before their wedding if you were to have any questions or would just like a chat about your day!
Can we have an Engagement Shoot?
Absolutely! Engagement shoots can be a great way for us to get to know each other before your wedding day. They’re not essential, however if you are a little worried or nervous about being in front of the camera on your day it’s a great way to ease you both into it. It also of course provides you with some stunning photographs of the two of you! Engagement shoots are offered on weekdays, in Summer months it is possible for us to do this in the evening as I know sometimes getting from off work can be an issue.
Engagement Shoots are £250 for a 2 hour shoot within Shropshire.
How long will it be before we get our photographs?
Your images will be with you no later than 4-6 weeks.I limit the amount of weddings I do per year to make sure that images can be delivered to you as soon as possible after your day.
