I’m sure you have a number of questions as you try and find the wedding photographer for you.
To make it easier for you, I’ve pulled this list of frequently asked questions just for you.
If don’t find your question below, please get in touch and I’ll get back to you.
Great news! Once you’ve decided to book with me, and we’ve selected the best package for you, I’ll send you a link to your contract and booking form. I’ll then send you your invoice with instructions on how to pay your non refundable booking fee. To save on trees and postage, your contract can be signed electronically, so no need to print anything out. Payments can be made by bank transfer or card.
Once I’ve received both your signed contract and booking fee, I’m ready and all booked for your wedding day! Cue some Carlton dance moves!
I keep in touch with you from the time you book all the way to and after your wedding. I’m here to help you with any other part of your planning process and love knowing when you’ve found your dress or suit as well as the touches you’ll add to make the day truly yours.
I wrote a post on what to expect from me as your wedding photographer which will outline further what will happen once I have you booked in.
Snap! Neither do I and yes you can!
What if I told you a large portion of the couples I’ve photographed, at least one of them was camera-shy? I understand how you’re feeling and because of that, I work very hard to make sure you feel as comfortable in front of my camera as possible. I rely very heavily on my love of sarcasm and weird sense of humour to get you laughing naturally, relaxing, talking and doing anything but thinking about my camera. I don’t overly pose as if you feel awkward, it will show, but get you to focus on each other which will always produces the most natural and in my humble opinion, version of you.
If you’d like to practise being in front of a camera, you can always book an engagement shoot which will help banish your fears about being camera side.
Within 48 hours after your wedding, I will have emailed you a selection of photos from your wedding for you share and remember the fun you had on your day.
Your private online gallery will be delivered around 4 weeks after your wedding but I will always aim to get them to you sooner. However, in high wedding season, it may be slightly longer but I will keep you posted every step of the way.
If you have ordered an album, after you have approved the design, your album will be ready for delivery within 4 weeks.
All collections include a second photographer as standard. Having a second photographer means more of your day is covered and you can get different perspectives of the same moment. I work with a group of photographers who are amazingly talented and run their own photography businesses. We have similar styles so there is no disconnect in your final set of photos.
If you’re having a small intimate wedding, a second photographer isn’t usually necessary so we can customise your collection accordingly.
Yes I do. An engagement session allows us to get to know each other and is a great way to get used to being in front of the camera if you’re camera shy. I find it also helps you relax and overcome any fears you have of being photographed. I’m not a fan myself, either, so I will do everything possible to make this a pain free process for you both.
Your photos will be delivered in an online downloadable gallery within 2 weeks of your session. Sessions usually last 60 to 90 minutes and are shot mainly in London but as I now live in Cambridgeshire, shoots can also take place around Cambridge.
If you’d prefer to be more adventurous, I do also travel for engagement shoots and love to do so. My travel and accommodation will incur an additional fee.
I keep album designs, simple and classic so not to date your album. Your photos are printed directly onto the page and each double spread opens out and lays flat. It is possible to upgrade to a matted album if you prefer a more traditional style.
All albums come with 15 double page spreads or 30 pages as standard and are custom made by hand for you from sustainable resources in the UK. It is possible to add additional pages to your album if you want to add more photos to your album.
