These are some frequently asked questions, if you have any queries that are not listed below please do not hesitate to contact as I appreciate there is so much to think about choosing your photographer.


WHAT PACKAGES DO YOU OFFER?

I offer three collections, starting with the digital collection (£1250), an all inclusive, premium Italian storybook collection (£1950) and an all inclusive, beautiful Italian matted album collection (£2450). You can add extras to any package, as I appreciate people have different requirements, and so I can design a bespoke collection to fit in with your specific requirements. Add a storybook from £250 or a parent copy book from £100.


HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?

I will travel anywhere needed to shoot a wedding, I would ask that for locations over 100 miles away from my base in Staffordshire that a little extra re travel costs would be added to the bespoke package.


HAVE YOU SHOT A WEDDING AT MY CEREMONY AND RECEPTION VENUES? IF NOT, DO YOU PLAN TO CHECK IT OUT IN ADVANCE?

I travel the UK shooting weddings, however, there are times when I would not have shot a wedding at your chosen venue. In this case I have to research the venue thoroughly before our pre wedding meeting, this way I’m totally prepared.


WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR STYLE?

My style is documentary & photo journalistic, telling the story of the day, capturing the natural unscripted moments as well as the must have shots. I also create beautiful, contemporary and artistic imagery. Please take a look at my galleries for examples of my work. I adapt to different people different light as its so refreshing to give couples different imagery.


WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO THE BIG DAY?

I have to say I pride myself on not being a focal point we all know who the stars of the show are and this is certainly not the photographer!! I’m relaxed and as unobtrusive as possible, I admit I can't be too unobtrusive when shooting the family groups or the main wedding party images, however, these images are all captured in a polite and relaxed yet efficient manner. Please if you have time read some of the testimonials as these are how past clients felt about my style, approach and results.


HOW LONG DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH FOR?

I usually photograph from the bridal preparations, through the ceremony and reception and into the evening.


WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOGRAPHS?

I aim to present your online web gallery within 2-3 weeks of your wedding day and will then look to complete your USB disk of images and design your storybook with you (if applicable), so that you are 100% delighted with the finished products.


CAN I HAVE MY PHOTOS IN AN ALBUM? DO I HAVE TO HAVE AN ALBUM?

Yes, you can have them printed in a range of storybooks, albums and guestbooks and I'd be delighted to show you examples beforehand. If you only want a digital version of your photos, I can cater for that too.


CAN I USE THE PHOTOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND PRINT THEM MYSELF?

Absolutely!


DO WE MEET BEFORE THE WEDDING?

This is an absolute must. Included within my package is a pre wedding meet up where we will go through all of your ideas and wishes.


CAN YOU HOLD MY DATE WHILE I DECIDE?

On your initial enquiry I would ask for the date of your special day. If available, it's first come, first served. Therefore I would always out of courtesy check before dealing with another enquiry other than yours. You can of course pay a deposit to secure your date. Normally I request a £250 deposit, followed by 50% at our pre wedding meet up and the balance upon presentation of your wedding gallery to complete your booking.


ARE YOU A FULL TIME, PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?

I am a full time photographer, its not a part time job to make a few extra pounds, I put all my time and effort into the business and love it!!

Being a professional photographer, this is what I do every day and every week of the year. This also enables me to offer late availability to my brides and grooms as I don't have to work around other commitments.


ARE YOU FULLY INSURED?

Yes I am fully insured, it’s crucial that Wedding Photographers are fully insured, it’s genuinely worth checking with any photographer you contact with a view to booking for your Big Day.

If anything was to happen that made it impossible for me to attend your big day, you can rest assured that I am fully insured for such eventualities and as a member of the SWPP, a replacement can be found to fall back on and ensure your day is captured.


THAT ALL SOUNDS GREAT, HOW DO WE BOOK?

I would like the opportunity to visit you both and show you some more example work and talk you through my style and approach. This is also a perfect time to answer any questions you may have. I can visit you at your home at a time to suit you or meet you half way if it’s easier.  Once we’ve had a chat and you would like to book me, I’ll leave you with a booking form and ask for a deposit of £250.  Once I receive the fee and form back I will confirm all your details in writing and your all booked in ready for the big day.
