FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we meet you before the wedding?


Of course! I prefer to meet all my couples before taking a booking fee. It's probably the first time you've choosen a wedding photographer and you'll have 101 questions. I've been to one or two weddings now so if you have any non photography questions, feel free to pick my brains, I'm happy to help whenever I can. If we're not local to one another, we can chat on the phone, skype or facetime.




Do we get an online gallery and can friends and family buy prints?


Yes, all packages include a password protected gallery for you to share with your friends and family. The gallery also allows you to order fine art prints and canvases.




What if you're sick or cannot photograph the wedding?


I work with a number of other wedding photographers that I know can deliver a high standard of work with a similar style to mine. Touch wood, I've never needed to call on them but one would be availble should this happen.




Are our digital files watermarked?


No. The edited images you receive on USB will not be watermarked, however the images in your online gallery will display a discreet watermark.




How many pictures will we receive?


You’ll receive anywhere between 400-600 individually edited photographs.




We would like to book you for our wedding photography, what do we do next?


Great! You've taken your first step towards amazing wedding photographs that you'll love forever. Fill out the contact form with your details and I'll give you a call to arrange a meeting. Once you've chosen your package you'll need to pay a 20% booking fee and sign an online contract to secure your date. Thats it! Sit back and relax knowing that your memories will be preserved for all time. I'm here to answer any questions and help at any point, but I wont bother you until six weeks before your big day. I'll email a couple of questionaires to confirm your formal shots list and timings for the day, but if you prefer we can schedule a meeting to go through everything in greater detail. Then before you know it, it's the morning of your wedding, yay!




Do you offer parent books?


We sure do. These are identical copies of your wedding album and make a great Xmas gift!




Are you insured?


Yes we're fully insured by a specialised photography insurance company with liability cover of £2m. If your wedding venues requires a copy of my certificate, just let me know and I'll email it over to you. I would recommend you take out your own wedding insurance for peace of mind. Not incase I run off with your money or anything, just incase either of you fall ill and the wedding is postponed. I'm happy to transfer dates to another that I'm free, but it's possible some suppliers may not be available and you could lose your booking fee.




How long will it take to receive our photographs?


Your images take around 4 weeks to retouch and process, you'll then receive a personal password to your online wedding gallery. Busy summer months may take a little longer.




Do we need to pay a deposit?


Yes. We require a £250 non-refundable booking fee to secure your date. This guarantees my services for your wedding. All new enquiries for your date would automatically be turned away. 50% of the balance is due 6 months prior to your date with the outstanding balance due 4 weeks prior to your wedding date.




What areas do you cover/will you travel to?


I'm based in Essex but pleased to say no distance is too great. I love to travel and don’t mind staying in a hotel the night before your wedding to ensure I’m close by. I'll also jump at the opportunity to pack my speedo's and jet off to a destination wedding. I've covered weddings in Cyprus & USA.




Do we have to book both photography and film together?


Absolutely not. Whilst we would recommend both, you're able to book photography or film on their own.




How does the album design process work?


I design albums all the time. I shoot your wedding day with thinking about how your album is going to be set out. Taking images that will compliment others on each page. I want to make the process as easy for you as possible. Therefore I dsign the first draft as I see your day. You will then receive a link to your album design, where you have the opportunity to make any ammendments you like. If I've done my job right, there shouldnt be many amendments and you should have your album after another 4-6 weeks.




When should we book you?


I would recommend booking your registrar and photographer as soon as you secure your venue. Anyone else who offer exclusivity and are must have's for your wedding need to be secured asap. Popular dates go quickly so if i’m available, lets get you onboard to avoid disappointment. Check out our directory for our recommendations.




Is our deposit refundable?


No...and yes. Your statutory rights are unaffected. If you pay your booking fee and change your mind within 14 days, you're booking fee will be refunded in full. Following this it becomes non refundable as you have paid for my exclusivity and I'm advising other couples that I'm not available for your date.




Can we book an engagement shoot?


Of course! I love engagement shoots. We get to hang out at a great location, stop for a drink, have a chat. I'll take some great images of the two of you, you'll see how I work and relax before your wedding day. I can see what style suits you and offer tips on relaxing infront of the camera. You'll receive 20 edited hi-res images and the option of producing a guest signing book using the images.




Can you film just the ceremony and speeches?


Yep. If a cinematic wedding film is not your style, but would like the ceremony and speeches recorded that's totally cool. We'll use a discreet mic to capture perfect audio and with two camera angles to record proceedings. Please check out our upgrades for more details.




Do you charge travel costs?


Travel costs within Essex, London and Kent are including in the price of your package. If you live further afield, we can agree a suitable figure to get me where I need to be the night before your wedding. For destination weddings, I'd recommend you include me when booking friends and family so we travel together, I'm close by and you're able to secure a special rate with your hotel.
