How do we find out your availability?
just drop me a message with your date
and I will check my calender!
How far in advance should we book?
as with most wedding providers, the longer the
notice the better to guarantee your date and
avoid dissapointment - but this doesnt mean
I wont have your date available -
simply drop me a message to check!
Do we need to pay a deposit? when is this due?
yes - as with most services a fixed deposit is needed
to guarantee your date to you.
a deposit of 25% is required
for all of my wedding packages and can be paid
along with your booking form via paypal
or with bank transfer.
deposits are non-refundable.
When would we need to pay the final amount?
this can be paid in part or in full before your day
or in full by 2 weeks before the day.
How would you describe your style & presence at a wedding?
I like to get in amoungst the day, working discreetly
to capture intimate moments and candids
and taking control when needed for those group shots.
I like to be creative and love ideas from you too!
my style is artistic, romantic and vintage/rustic.
do you have a portfolio of work for us to view?
my work is available to view online in my galleries
and I can provide a sample wedding book on request.
what type of equipment do you use?
I work with professional grade D-SLR and lenses.
I have invested a lot of money into better equipment
as well as teaching myself further.
I shoot in digital RAW format.
Do You share our images?
only with your consent.
What if it rains?
we will get wet! haha. we will work around the weather, its the only
thing you simply cannot predict! especially in the UK.
What if you are ill or cannot make our day?
on the very, very rare occasion I am too ill to cover your day,
I liaise with top wedding photographers all over the UK and would
find an associate shooter if the need arose.
this has happened less than 4 times in a 100+ wedding career.
Do you need to know anything from us before the day?
yes. I like to have a list of requested shots (groups, etc)
to work from, as well any input into the style
or specific things you'd like captured.
your input is important for me to get you
the best photos from your day -
don't worry about the technical/artistic side,
as I work from the environment & capture moments
I know you'll love, but when it comes to
something special to you,
I may not know - so tell me! :)
Do you charge for travel?
if your wedding is taking place out of the
Portsmouth/Fareham/Gosport areas -
I will charge additionally for travel.
this can be discussed during our booking.
Do we provide you food on the day?
its not compulsory to do so, but is very much appreciated!
only if I am shooting for you all day.
i tend to take a break during the wedding breakfast.
nobody wants eating pictures!
Are you insured?
I have public liability insurance & proof on request.
I also have insurance on all of my equipment.
will you be shooting other weddings on the same day as ours?
I never book more than one wedding in a day.
this ensures my full attention on your special day only.
is there a contract/paperwork we need to see or sign?
yes, I can either send this to you over the internet
or via post to check and sign before your wedding day.
it simply includes the agreement made between us,
whats included and consent of the use of the images.
THIS CONTRACT IS NOW INCLUDED
WITH THE BOOKING FORM
SO PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL THE INFORMATION
WHEN SIGNING. view full terms here.
you also need a print release for your images
for printing, which will come with your downloads and USB.
How long after our wedding can we expect to view?
during busy periods (usually Jul, Aug, Sep)
you can expect to start viewing your proofs online
within 3-4 weeks minimum, I will keep you updated
on this as at times, it can be sooner.
Do we receive all original images?
I do not provide all of the original shots.
I work through them and select the best shots taken,
avoiding you receiving many duplicate shots
and any shots that didn't quite fit my standard.
