FAQs

HOW DO YOU WORK?

I aim to capture real moments as they happen rather than pausing the event to take a photo. This leaves you free to enjoy the day, to soak up the atmosphere and to spend time with your friends and family. I don't believe the photography should get in your way, a natural moment captured means so much more than a posed photo.

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?

I’m based in Bath but am available for weddings all over the UK and beyond. Travel within 100 miles is included, if your wedding is further than that I’ll charge £200 travel expenses. Need me to get on a plane?  Just cover my accommodation and airfare.

HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT?

I require a £400 deposit to secure your wedding date, with the remaining balance due 28 days before the big day

DO YOU SUPPLY ALBUMS?

Yes absolutely. Please contact me for a price list.

DO YOU STILL DO THE TRADITIONAL GROUP SHOTS?

I’m always happy to do the groups, this will take between 30– 40 minutes depending on the number of groups. Your ushers and best man can be very helpful at this stage by gathering the people you need.

CAN WE PRINT FROM THE USB?

Yes, please do! The only limitation I place on the images is that they are not to be used for commercial purposes without my consent (you can’t sell them), and if you’re sending them on to your hairdresser/magazines etc just let me know. The images are full sized and don’t have my logo or anything else over them, so you’re good to go!

DO YOU BACKUP THE PHOTOS?

Both of my cameras record the images to two memory cards. I back the images up to a laptop when everyone is eating and I make an offsite copy when I return home that night. By the end of the day there are four copies of your images in two different locations.

HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE WE CAN SEE OUR PICTURES?

All of your images will usually be ready within three weeks

CAN MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY BUY PICTURES?

Yes, you will have an online gallery with a password which you can give out to your friends and family. This inludes free high res downloads and the option to purchase prints.

We didn’t want to go on our honeymoon before saying a quick thank you. You were absolutely fantastic from start to finish and it really felt like we had a friend taking the pictures. Being the centre of attention isn’t something that comes naturally to either of us but you made everything so easy. We are beyond excited to see the pictures and I actually just squealed with excitement when I read your email then! We’ve just watched the video and it was so amazing and beautiful we’ve both just been crying! I really do not have the words to express how grateful we are for everything and how stunning the pictures are. Thank you so much for helping to make our day special, Alice and Jack
