Frequently Asked Questions
When do we meet with you?
If you are in the East Midlands and 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.
Once you are 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 and to walk through all of the required details and timings for your wedding day.
Is all day coverage REALLY all day?
Yes 100%! I provide an all day coverage wedding photography 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 preparation commences so you can relax and then stay with you both right through to the evening celebrations, first dance and beyond!
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 wedding 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.
Is every photograph edited?
Yes, every photograph in your wedding gallery is edited and colour corrected by me. I don’t contract out any of my editing and my style is classic, clean and timeless. I stay well clear of fads which tend to date very quickly.
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. Some couples ask guests not to take photographs as the bride comes down the isle to avoid a plethora of mobile phones held in front of faces in your photographs but that’s completely your call.
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 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
