Frequently Asked Questions

Do you Travel?

I am based in Nottingham, so right in the very heart of England. I’m happy to cover anywhere in the UK.
I've shot in Scotland, and the Home Counties before now and am always up for a road trip
If you're getting married far outside of the East Midlands area then there might be an additional charge for travel expenses but this will be discussed with you and included in your quotation.

I am available for weddings outside the UK too; if you are planning getting married abroad ask me about special rates for destination weddings.

How many photos do we get?

In general, a full day of of photography will get you somewhere between four and seven hundred pictures. This number varies dependent on a number of factors such as whether you've asked for a second shooter, or if there are restrictions on where we can taken photos.
Looking back over the weddings I've shot over the years it averages out around 600 or so.

How do we get our photos?

You'll get access to a client gallery within my website. I'll provide you with a PIN you can use to download your images, or share them with your friends and family.

Whats your turn around time?

In the busiest of periods I would normally expect a turnaround time of 3 to 5 weeks. I always endeavour to make sure that a couple of teaser images are made available within a couple of days of the wedding - it helps whet the appetite for more.

How do we book you?

First, get in contact - by phone, email or the contact form. We'll have a chat and work out the details.
Once we've spoken, and you've confirmed your dates we'll agree the contract. A deposit of £200.00 will secure your booking for the day. The remainder of the cost won't need to be paid until 4 weeks before your big day.

How far in advance should we book?

Honestly, as soon as you have a date and a venue you should then look to book your photographer. The busy dates, especially from May to September go very fast and sometimes years in advance. As a broad rule of thumb I'd say look to book your photographer at least 12 months in advance.
If you're going for a mid-week or an off-season wedding then you have a bit more flexibility in timing.

What should we do for an engagement session / Pre wedding shoot?

There's a lot of flexibility here. It's a chance for you to get to know your photographer and for them to get to know you. I strongly recommend a pre-wedding shoot as I find it helps build that connection with your photographer, and it makes a difference to the quality of pictures you get from your big day.
My recommendation is to go to a venue that means something to you. It can be a park / abbey / castle or even just a walk in the woods. The key factors are not to worry about posing so much as cuddling into one another and enjoying each other's company. Your photographer will help direct you a bit but it will mostly be in terms of movement rather than them putting you into a static pose.

Do you have an assistant or second shooter?

I work with some great photographers who can join in with us for the day. This is extra on top of the usual packages.

We are not good in front of the camera. Can you help?

Don’t worry, many people aren't comfortable in front of a camera, and none of my couples are professional models. I will guide you a little during any formal portrait session but there won't be much posing on the day. Be yourself, cry with laughter, smile and have fun - that's the key for great wedding photos.

Are you Insured?

I am, yes. I have full cover including Public Liability & Professional Indemnity insurance.

Do you provide wedding albums and prints?

Yes. I offer a variety of albums, prints, and wall-art.
