How far in advance of the wedding do we need to book?
It’s always best to secure your wedding date as early as possible to avoid disappointment. I take bookings up to 3 years in a advance, so if you want me to photograph your wedding don't hesitate to get in touch.
How do we book you to photograph our wedding?
Get in touch and once I have checked that I'm available for your wedding date, we will arrange to catch up to discuss your wedding plans in more detail. To finalise the booking I will then send you a contract along with a request for an initial payment of £550.
What is your style and do you take any family or formal group photos?
My style of photography is natural, creative, cinematic and most of all fun! I capture the day as it happens, no set poses or forced smiles. I do however believe that including some formal shots is important, but this really is the decision of each couple. I would normally recommend limiting set group shots to no more than 10, so that we can do these as quickly as possible to allow you to enjoy your day. The style of my photography can be consistently seen through the images that are displayed throughout my website.
We are getting married overseas, can we still book you to photograph our wedding?
Absolutely! I love to travel and have photographed weddings all over the world and there's lots more places I'd like to go! For overseas weddings I do ask that both travel expenses and accommodation costs are covered but I always aim to keep these to a minimum. Simply get in touch so that we can discuss your requirements and plans for your big day in more detail.
How many photographs would you expect to take on our wedding day?
There is no limit to the amount of shots I would take on your wedding day, but I would estimate to provide you with a *minimum of 350 images of what I believe to be the best representation of your day. Quality over quantity really is the best option.
How soon after our wedding will we be able to see our photos?
I take great care in the post production work on your photographs so I aim to provide the final images to you 8 to 12 weeks after your wedding date. The images will then be available for you to view via the secure online client access area of the website. You will be provided with a unique code to allow you access to the gallery, which you can also pass on to friends and family if you wish. The images will also then be sent to you on a presentation USB at an extra cost if required.
Can we print directly from the images that you provide?
All of the edited images of your wedding day can be accessed via your private gallery hosted on my website forever! The images are in a high resolution format to allow you to print directly from the files provided. You are free to print your wedding photographs as you wish, email them to friends or even upload them to Facebook.
Can we order prints from your website?
All of the edited images will be saved in your personal online gallery. You can share this with family and friends, who can look at your photos and order any fine art prints and artwork that they choose.
What happens to my wedding files?
I save multiple copies of wedding files on external hard drives to ensure that they are stored safely. However we will only commit to saving raw and jpeg files for a 12 month period after your wedding date.
What kind of album do you offer?
Please see the Prices section of the website for information on the albums that I offer.
How does my album design process work?
I will ask you to choose the images that you would like to be included by selecting individual photos in the client area of my website. I will design your album with your selection, to tell the story of your day. I will then email you with a proof of the album design for you to approve. Once you are happy I will send the album to be professionally printed with your choice of cover and personalised text.
Do you provide video coverage?
No, I only specialise in stills photography, but I do highly recommend that you contact Stefan from YSD MEDIA. We have worked together many times at venues throughout the UK and also overseas at destination weddings.
