There are so many questions you could ask when booking a photogapher. Some of the most common ones are below.
If there is anything else you want to ask...please just get in touch. Always happy to have a chat.
What areas do you cover?
I enjoy working all over the UK and beyond. I feel it keeps my images fresh and creative, instead of working the same venues repetitively. All quotes are inclusive of all travel costs.
What sort of coverage do you offer?
Each and every event is unique. So is my approach. Whether you are looking for a full day wedding, or a couple of hours at a business event - I can help.
How many photos do I receive?
One of the most commonly asked questions - to which there is no exact answer. Any photographer who sells themselves promising "X" number of pictures cannot possibly fulfill. A typical wedding can produce between 400-800 images depending on the size and length of the day and coverage. Quite often you will receive some key images in multiple edits.
How long will I have to wait for my pictures?
This differs on the type of event. Weddings, I always deliver some "preview" pictures within a few days of the wedding itself. The rest take around 6 weeks. Whilst events etc usually take around 2 weeks depending on the event itself.
Can I pay in installments?
Absolutely. I am happy to accommodate any ideas you may have and I am very relaxed when it comes to payment terms. As long as the balance is cleared around a month before the wedding, that is good with me.
Can I print my own images?
Of course. Many clients choose to do this, but may approach me if they wanted to order a more professional print for display for example.
The only thing I do insist on, is that images are NOT edited further by anybody else.
Do you supply Albums and Canvasses?
Yes I do. I am very fortunate to be on the accredited suppliers list with some amazing album companies. I can include them in wedding packages, or they can be ordered at a later date. They can be surprisingly inexpensive to purchase, but amazing quality. They are designed around you and your choices, and the options are endless.
Canvasses can be supplied in virtually all size combinations.
Are you insured?
Yes. I hold public liability cover of up to £2 million.
I also hold Professional Indemnity insurance.
I have an enhanced DBS check in place.
All certificates can be viewed upon request
Do you put your logo on my pictures?
Not at all.
If I use some of your images on my social media pages or in my gallery, I may use my logo on them, but all the images you receive will be free from watermarks and logos.
I can create a personalised standard logo FREE of charge if you wish and place this on images (works great with events)
Can you help with other suppliers?
Yes I can! I am fortunate to have built great relationships with other suppliers in the wedding and events industries. I am more than happy to recommend anyone that I have worked with, and know they will look after you.
Do you edit ALL the images?
Yes I do. Every image that you receive will have been hand-edited, individually, without batching them into groups or mass-editing them. Editing usually sorts out colour balancing, cropping of the image, and basically ensuring that the image reaches you the best it can possibly be.
Do you bring an assistant?
Sometimes. As every wedding is different, I can usually tell by the enquiry itself what will be required. If needs be, I may suggest that I utilise my second photographer for your day as well.
Do you need feeding at my wedding?
The question which couples always feel awkward about.
If you wish to feed me - brilliant!
It is always appreciated but never expected.
All I ask is that we sort this out beforehand so I know whether I will need to bring foo with me or not.
What if the weather is awful on my wedding?
It happens. However, it is very unusual that it rains ALL day. However, even if it does, there are some amazing images that can be produced.
Can you provide references?
Yes of course. I can put you in touch with any clients I have worked with, and you can talk about me behind my back with pleasure.
The reviews you see on the website and on my social media pages are all real and authentic.
Business/Corporate references can be supplied upon request
Do you provide videography and drone coverage ?
I have 2 teams of videographers who work with me often, ranging from single camera operators to a camera team to capture your event from multiple cameras.
I also have a qualified drone operator who I can utilise for any event.
I don't operate these personally, as I am usually too busy photographing
