Frequently asked questions

Where are you based?

I grew up in Sheffield and my family and I now live in a small village in Derbyshire - only downside? UberEats isn't here yet. I've always travelled far and wide for weddings and I love the advenuture of going to new places, so don't be put off if I'm not local!

*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 me I'll include a small travel supplement of £100 to help me out with fuel there and back. Any accomodation is include in my all packages. 

How do we book you?!

Super easy; Fill out my short contact form here and include as much detail as you want! I'll see if your wedding date is still available and if it is, awesome! Once we've had a facetime I'll email you the formalities and once your deposit is with me we're you're officially booked! 

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 any of the MAAANY videochat options are fine by me.

What do we receive?

Depending on the package you've chosen, a minimum of 350 carefully selected images, edited and finished by me, presented in a beautiful, private online viewing gallery.

All your photos are fully edited and finished and will be sized for print and also for social media and email for sharing as soon as you get them. If you've included a Keepsake box, this includes a USB containing all your images and seven fine art prints, all wrapped up ready to adorn your home.
If you've ordered an Album, we'll work together to make sure it's exactly how you want it and this can be ready in just a few weeks once 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. 

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 what I'm doing. During your photo session I 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 use both! I don't normally use flash during the day unless I absolutely need to, or unless I'm doing something creative, but I do use it for the party shots to catch those amazing poses!

* 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 anything! 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 retainer for booking me 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 1 month prior to your wedding and I always send an email headsup nearer the time. 

Do you ever shoot with a second photographer?

99% 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! click here and ask away.

Do we feed you??

I do eat food! If it's the case that your caterers only have enough food for guests, absolutely no worries, I always bring snacks. But there's nothing like a hot meal during my day, so if there's enough to go around, then hells yeah I'll eat! Intolerances-wise, I'm gluten and dairy free. (unfortunately. sob).

Can we order prints and other extras?

Absolutely! Your Online gallery also contains a a one stop shop for buying different styles of prints, albums, mini-books, USB's and loads more.

You don't have to worry about uploding the images you want printed either, because your entire collection is built into the shop. Just select the product and you'll see every image ready there for you to select.

Anything purchased through your shop initially comes to me for quality control and packaging to be delivered straight to your home.

How long is the online gallery open?

For packages 1+2 your gallery is accessible for one year from the day you recieve your gallery invite. 

For package 3, it's a six month gallery pass.

Do you do video as well?

I learnt long ago that video wasn't for me. But I have a TON of recommended videographers I've personally worked alongside here.

Let's Chat!

Do you give us every image you photograph?

No I don't. I take about 5000+ raw images every wedding and I present all my couples with a hand finished, polished piece of art work. You wouldn't go to an awesome restaraunt and ask for all the ingredients to a meal would you - you trust the chefs to create an incredible meal for you. Same applies here :)  

Can we ask for the RAW images?

No, I don't hand over any unfinshed images. See above!

Do you use AI to edit your work?

The only AI tools I use are within Photoshop and Lightroom which I use to remove, say, an 'exit' sign above a door, or slightly extend a wall, things like that. Personally I don't agree with using AI applications that edit entire weddings at the click of a button. That's not how I roll. 

Can we ask you to edit our photos a certain way?

This is a biggie, and I'm always open to suggestions. But at the end of the day we're working together on a trust basis because we're absolutely on the same wavelength and you're already in love with the approach, work/colours etc that I produce. If you want control over your images we're not te right fit, but that's ok!

Message Sent!

Thanks so much for reaching out, I can’t wait to meet you! If today's a Sunday I'll be with you on Monday. Otherwise I’ll be in touch within 24hrs or sooner to go through the next steps. 

Let's do this!!
