Frequently Asked Questions
I hope the below is helpful, feel free to get in touch to ask anything at all that’s not answered or if you would just like to chat through your specific requirements.
When do we meet?
If you are relatively local I would be more than happy to call in and chat through any questions before booking or if you prefer we can chat on the phone, Skype or by Email. I understand its such a big moment in your lives and being sure you have chosen the right person (and more importantly personality!) to photograph your day is essential.
Once booked in I meet all of my couples face to face around a month before your wedding day. Its the perfect time for relaxed introductions, note all of the required details and timings for the day and make sure I am aware of any important family history such as divorces or that Grandma can only stand for a few minutes etc.
Is all day coverage REALLY all day?
Yes 100%! I provide an all day coverage package because I don't want my couples to have to compromise or worry about their schedule.
I arrive a little while before the bridal party preparation commences so you can relax and then stay with you both right through to the evening celebrations and first dance.
Can we give you a list of "must-have" group photographs?
I work really closely with all of my couples to put together the perfect list of group shots for family formal pictures.
Weddings are wonderful unscripted events, my style of photography ensures I capture all of the real moments that happen, and whilst some posing is necessary for groups and ‘wow’ shots of the two of you, I try to keep it all very natural, relaxed and to a minimum.
Can other people take photographs during the wedding?
Of course! It's your special day and I wouldn't dream of insisting that guests don’t take photographs. The only exception would be if a guest is taking snaps of the formal pictures over my shoulder my concern is people in groups looking different directions so I may politely ask them to pause for a moment to ensure that I can give you the very best pictures.
Do you have Wedding Photography Public Liability Insurance?
I have comprehensive £1m public liability cover with a professional insurer.
If your venue(s) require a certificate I can provide this directly to them on request by email.
What Cameras and Photography Equipment do you use?
The camera is probably the least important part of making beautiful memories but what does matter is resilience.
I shoot your wedding with two professional camera bodies and the very best professional grade lenses. I have a third backup camera and both of my main cameras have two memory card slots, so every single image I take of your big day is simultaneously recorded to two separate memory cards. I have ensured as far as possible, no matter what happens, your images are safe and technical issues will not get in the way of documenting your wedding day.
I use a Sony A7 iii (Full frame camera), Sony A7S ii (Full frame camera), Sony A9 (Full frame camera), Sony G Master 24-70 f2.8, Sony G Master 70 – 200 f2.8, Sony Carl Zeiss 35mm F1.4, Sony G 85mm f1.8, Godox AD200 and 3 x wireless flash
