• How quickly do I receive my pictures?
I aim to have your pictures on my website sharpish! 7 to 10 days is what I typically aim for but if it's a particularly busy time of year then I would always keep you up to date with my progress with your pictures. Honestly, I can't remember the last time it took me longer than 2 weeks! Within a few days of the pictures going on the blog, your USB would be delivered in the post along with the photofilm and proofs.
• Where are you based?
I'm based in Frimley Green in Surrey and I shoot weddings all over the UK and abroad. To date, I've shot weddings in the USA, Sweden, the French Alps, Scotland, Durham, Lancashire, Cornwall, Kent, the Midlands, London and the home counties.
• Do you photograph groups of family and friends?
Absolutely. I shoot a handful of posed groups at every wedding unless of course you don't want any.
• How would you describe your style?
The wedding should not be about the photography, the photography should be about the wedding. In other words, I don't direct and cajole, I capture and document!
• Are travel expenses included? What about VAT?
My pricing is transparent and there are no hidden costs. VAT is included as are travel expenses within a 3 hour drive of Surrey.
• Can I print my own images?
Absolutely! You will receive a minimum of 750 high resolution JPEG files and the copyright is shared so go nuts!
• What kit do you use?
Last year I changed from Canon SLRs to two mirrorless Sony A9 cameras and I have to say...WOW! I won't go into full geek-meltdown here but it's by far the best purchase I've ever made. Complete silence, amazing technology, and awesome pictures!
• What happens if you're ill?
Should the worst happen and I'm seriously ill I have many backups to call upon. Specifically, I'm part of a group of wedding photographers based in the south which was founded for this very reason. My absolute priority would be to make sure that I find the right style of photographer for you and at the right price.
• Who decides on the look of the album?
You do - I want you to love this book forever! So after you've given me your list of favourite images I edit them, put a design together, and share it with you. You can request unlimited changes and it doesn't go to print until it's perfect.
• Are you insured?
I think a wedding photographer would have to be a bit crazy not to be so yes, I am generously covered.
• Can you recommend a videographer?
I've worked alongside many videographers and I'd be more than happy to recommend a few who share a similar ethos and produce outstanding work.
• Can we meet?
I love meeting couples and talking about their plans for the big day. My office in Frimley Green, Surrey is always open and it's opposite a great pub should you want to plan lunch/supper either side of a meeting. Should a face to face not be convenient then I'm always up for a chat over the phone.
