Frequently asked questions

Where are you based?

I grew up in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and my family and I now live in a small country town in Derbyshire. I've always travelled far and wide for weddings so it's definitely worth asking where I am for your big day!

How much does it cost you to travel to our wedding?

I've travelled mainly within europe for all my weddings and it's actually been very affordable. If your wedding is more than 2hrs from SK23 I'll just ask for a travel quote when you send your enquiry. 

How do we book you?

This is the easy part! Drop me an email here to see if your wedding date is still available. If it is, I'll send out your deposit invoice and booking form to sign and we're good to go. I'm also totally up for a catch up anytime!

Can we meet before the big day?

Yes! I love to meet up in person for a drink and a chat where I can, but if it's not possible facetime/zoom/googlemeet - are great options.

What do we receive?

Depending on the package you've chosen, a minimum of 350 carefully selected, edited and finished by me. All the photos will be sized for print, for as much printing as you can handle! They'll also be sized for social media and email for sharing as soon as you get them. If you've included a Keepsake box, they include a USB drive containing all your images and seven fine art prints, all wrapped up in a handmade wooden keepsake box.
If you've ordered an Album, we'll work together to make sure it's exactly how you want it, with as much or as little input from you as you'd like - we're all busy! This can be ready just weeks after you recieve your photos.

Wow, there are so many incredible weddings on your site - do you still shoot humble DIY weddings and simple church weddings? 

Heck yes! Every wedding's it's own little adventure. Doesn't matter the shape or size!

Do you shoot same sex marriages?

I absolutely 1000% do, and I'm looking forward to catpuring many more as time comes. 

We're not really into posing, it just feels awkward. we much prefer candid photos!

I'm right there with you. I won't be asking you to smile for your photos! Most of the time you won't notice me, and during your photos I can give enough direction to make you feel at ease, but not so much so things still flow naturally and you have fun.

Do you use flash or natural light?

I adore natural light - you really can't beat it, and it shapes the whole atmosphere and the feel of your photos. I don't use flash during the day unless I absolutely need to, but I do use it for the party shots and maybe if we go for a wander outdside in the evening - those shots can look VERY cool.

I really want to book, but I'm based outside of the UK - will you travel this far?

No worries. I LOVE to travel and I've been all over the UK, with the odd wedding abroad during my time, so really I'm up for anywhere! If your wedding is more than 2 hours away for SK23, or outside the UK, we'll work out a quote that covers your photography and my travel and accomodation. 

So how does the deposit work? Is it refundable?

I ask for a £500 non-refundable deposit for my wedding packages and it's advisable to pay this as soon as we've met up and you've made your final call. It completes the booking proces and locks me into your date :) 

When do we pay the balance?

The balance is due no less than 1 month priot to your wedding and I always send an email headsup nearer the time. 

Do you ever shoot with a second photographer?

90% of the time I shoot solo, but I occasionally shoot wth a second photographer if the couple asks for one, or depending on the size of your day I might suggest one. A second photog can be added for a separate fee. 

Have you ever not shown up to a wedding!

GOD no! And I plan to keep it that way. In the event that I for-sure can't shoot your wedding, I have a backup plan in place. 

Can I include an album with my package?

Of course! You can add an album/s to your package from the very start, or once you have your photos and decide you just have to have them in print. A lot of my couples order their albums either with their package, for their first year anniversary, or a gift for the holidays.  

My question isn't here!

No worries! get in touch here and ask away.
