…you need an A to your Q.”

HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOUR STYLE?
In a word “natural”. I have an off-
with creative portraits that keep you engaged and moving, and you get a coverage of your wedding that is not only beautiful but also authentic.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU AND ALL THAT STUFF?
All it takes in the completion of an online wedding photography agreement plus a £400 deposit ― and we’re all booked! The balance is due 2 months before your day.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE THE FORMALS (GROUP SHOTS)?
Keep it simple ― Any more than 10-
families getting together. I’ve not photographed a wedding without them. Have a think about the people you want in your shots and run-
I’M NOT COMFORTABLE HAVING MY PHOTO TAKEN ― CAN YOU HELP?
Yes, because you know what? Me too! I work to get to know you which helps us all relax. The results are natural photos full of emotion and feeling.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
In the UK ― really? Boo! Actually, not really ― Rain is an opportunity. Your photos might show lots of umbrellas and guests hiding under trees, but that adds character.
CAN WE SHARE OUR PHOTOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
Yes, absolutely. Two tiny polite requests ― I ask you not to put any extra filters on them, and if you could credit me where possible ― that would be groovy, cheers!
WHAT IS THE ONLINE GALLERY YOU MENTION?
This is where your photos will be when they are ready ― all your high-
DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU AT THE RECEPTION?
It would be kind and lovely if you do, but it’s not contracted. Feeding my assistant/second shooter and I ensures we stay cheerful and mobile, and don’t end
up relying on forgotten protein bars that have sat at the bottom of a camera bag since 2017. I do request our drinks be provided on the day (non-
CAN OUR FAMILY & FRIENDS TAKE PICTURES?
Of course! I do request they give me all the space I require; but I don’t mind if they snap away in the background. I don’t allow family or friends to come along
to the couple photos. But I welcome other cameras during the dancing and cake cutting. Just no bundling me out of the way ― always nice to stay standing up.
ARE YOU FULLY INSURED?
Completely! ― with Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance; and should your venue require documentation, just ask ― I always carry copies.
DO YOU TAKE OTHER TYPES OF PHOTOGRAPHY OR JUST WEDDINGS?
I specialise in weddings and focus my attention on my wedding couples. If there is something else you want to discuss, please
get in touch and we’ll chat. In the past 12 months I have completed Head-
Booking a great wedding photographer should not be hard. You’ll probably have a few questions however; so I have compiled a list of questions that
I’ve been asked quite often. Should you not find your answer here however, please do contact me with your question or even your list of questions.

HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION?
A lot of brides and grooms ask “What is the most important thing at our wedding day?”, and usually my answer is your schedule. I can’t stress this enough. Having a proper schedule
sets the entire tone for your wedding! The timing for photography needs to be juuuust right and fit in with the rest of your day’s schedule flawlessly. Of course, each wedding day is unique;
but these general time slots allow for the right amount of time needed for me to photograph each important moment as thoroughly as possible. I’ve basically got it down to a science!
This is a good amount of time, a minimum perhaps, for photos of the Bride getting ready ― including the Maid of Honour, the Bridesmaids, Mum arriving, and Dad’s timely decision to make a bacon sandwich just as the car arrives!, and of course all of the hair, make-
― The Bride
The whiskey, the cufflinks, the unapproved Batman socks ― the banter, visible nerves, and also the rushing to YouTube to work out how to tie a tie properly ― when did we all forget?
― The Groom
Photographer talk for “Group Shots” ― The family moments and the friends you’ve collected over the years. These can sometimes take a little longer than you’d think, so making sure of the time for them can be important.
― The Formals
I say “Twenty’s Plenty”, and it is; but allowing a little extra is a good idea, as we will get interrupted (It’s your big day ― everyone will want to celebrate it with you in their own way). Plus it gives me a little flexibility should something else overrun.
― The Newlyweds
A lot of research, thought, time and effort usually goes into how amazing and personal your day looks, and it’s important those details are captured.
― The Decor
It’s always a nice photo, and absolutely worth stealing you away from your guests for a few quiet moments towards the end of the day ― I usually do this before the cake cutting and your first dance, which also allows you to take a few moments before showing the world all your moves!
― The Sunset
