How do we book?
Bookings are made on a 1st come 1st served basis so act quickly. Bookings are taken well in advance, sometimes around 18 to 24 months prior. If you’d like to take your enquiry to the next stage then please get in touch. Either complete the enquiry form, email or call me. I’ll check the date for my availability and reply as soon as I can. There’s a small bit of paperwork to compete as well as a booking fee to pay. Only on completion of both does the booking become official.
Can we meet with you?
Yes, with pleasure. I’d love to hear more about your day and run through the details. If you’d like to make a no obligation viewing appointment please just ask. If you’re not local I’m happy call or even Skype you.
What is the best way for group shots?
I generally find its best to start with a photo of everyone straight after the ceremony, this way everyone is still around and present. Then I normally let everyone mingle before starting group shots approx. 45mins prior to guests being seated. Although it is a personal preference from couple to couple. I do recommend listing groups in a priority order and keeping them to a minimum. Pass a copy to your Ushers & Best Man to round them up. I’m more than happy to call and request guests come forward but I prefer to be shooting rather than shouting. It’ll also save you on time.
How can I feel more comfortable with couple photos?
Taking time out away from your guests is recommended and usually 20 minutes or so is plenty. I’m happy to go through some simple poses and tips during the consultation session to help you feel comfortable. Also my main package includes a pre-wedding shoot which is great to use to get comfortable in front of the camera. If I’m with you all day through to your 1st dance then the time between your wedding breakfast/ speeches is an ideal opportunity to shoot the portraits. Most couples are more relaxed at this time, easing the pressure off the main part of the day. Technically it can also be a finer light to shoot in.
How long after the wedding until we receive our images?
All usable images are edited to meet the highest professional standards. Each wedding takes a few weeks of editing from start till finish, allowing for day to day running of the business . During peak season images usually take 8 to 12 weeks.
What happens if you-re poorly on the day?
Touch wood, I’ve never missed a wedding. In the case of illness I would do my absolute best to provide a equivalent replacement. I have a lot of photographer friends who all help each other out. I’m fortunate to be associated with many high-end professionals who I can call on. Covering your wedding would be my priority.
