QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Do you cover my area?
Certainly. If I am available, I will shoot your wedding wherever and whenever it is.
Do you charge extra for travel and accommodation?
If your wedding is outside of the south of England I do charge for 'economy standard' travel and accommodation.
What time do you arrive and when do you leave?
I start as early as you would like and I stay until the end of the party (my personal record was 6am to 5am the following day). I am there to capture your day in its entireity, not the day I think you should have or the day instagram thinks you should have.
Can I have a second photographer?
Yes. I work with a lot of talented, award-winning photographers and we all second-shoot for each other. You will get two photographers who are both capable of leading a wedding. The additional charge for this is typically £300.
Will I receive High-Res images?
Yes - both high-resolution and social media sizes will be available to you for download.
What happens if you can't make it to the wedding?
I am well connected in several communities for established wedding photographers. I will do my best to find you a replacement in any situation.
Do you back-up your images?
Absolutely. I back up to spare memory while I shoot and make multiple on-site and off-site back-ups once your images are ingested. I recommend that you keep local back-ups of your images when you receive them (but I keep spares forever in case).
Are you insured?
Yes I have public liability and professional indemnity cover, world-wide, up to £5million.
Can I share my images on social media?
Absolutely. They are your images of your wedding and I'd really like it if you shared them. You can do anything you like with your images - except to say that you took them!
Do you take family group photos
Yes of course. I recommend that we plan these together to ensure that you have as much time as possible to enjoy the reception.
Can I order an album after the wedding?
Yes, I can add an album to your package for a year after the wedding and I can work with you to set up a gift register for your wedding album if you wish.
Can I have all of the RAW images you take?
I don't offer this. I typically take over six-thousand images at a wedding (e.g. to check exposures, test compositions, calibrate lenses. or are part of burst sequences to prevent blinks). I only edit and send you the keepers.
How do I secure the date in your diary?
I only take approximately 30 weddings a year to optimise the experience for my clients and those dates are taken very quickly. If I am still available, you can secure the date with a £300 deposit.
When do I need to pay the final balance?
I will send the final balance invoice a month before the wedding date.
Do you take Credit cards and American Express?
