Frequently Asked Questions
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
I certainly do. In fact, I travel for almost of all my weddings - anywhere from Isle of Skye to London to Australia. Nowhere is too far. Travel is included for full day UK weddings, and Scotland for half-day weddings. I love photographing weddings abroad only charge for my return flight for weddings outside the UK.
WILL WE MEET BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?
I want to create a great relationship with you before the big day so I’d love to meet up for a coffee if we stay nearby. Otherwise, we can arrange a Skype meeting. If you have booked a pre-wedding shoot there’ll also be an opportunity for us to meet there too.
DO YOU CARRY BACK UP GEAR?
Yes, of course. Any professional wedding photographer will bring back ups just in case of thefts, accidents on the day or total mechanical failure. Your wedding day only happens once, I don’t want to miss capturing a thing.
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
I certainly do, I have full liability and indemnity.
DO YOU TAKE FORMAL PHOTOGRAPHS?
Yes, I’m happy to take a few formal family portraits on the day. I only ask that you send me a list of any formal family/group shots before the wedding and recommend arranging no more than 8.
DO I NEED A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
Almost all of my weddings have been photographed solo. However, if your wedding has a large number of guests (100+) or multiple venues a second shooter is recommended, especially if your timeline is restricted. You’ll also have the option of both of your preperations being covered, plus will receive more candids and details shots.
CAN FRIENDS & FAMILY VIEW MY PHOTOGRAPHS?
Included within my package is a password protected online gallery of your wedding photographs. The address will be e-mailed out to you so you can share this with your friends/family to view all the photos of your wedding day. They can also use the gallery to order any prints they would like.
HOW LONG UNTIL WE WILL RECEIVE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
It can take up to 6 weeks during high season, but this is normally a lot sooner. First I send your highlights slideshow then once I've heard you've received it, I will send your gallery link.
WE DEFINITELY WANT TO GO AHEAD, HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
That’s great news! I require a £500 booking fee to secure your date (this is deducted from your final balance) along with a signed contract. For this I’ll need both your full names and address. The final balance is due the 1st of the month before your wedding date.
