What''s the delivery time for photographic report?
I don’t rush my post production editing and this does take some time, but I aim to have your photographs ready to send about 4 weeks after the wedding.
Do you send all the photos taken?
No not all the photos. I choose the best of the bunch which depending on what package you choose. I tend to be more generous than not, so I do try to include as many images as I can for you.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
Normally I work alone, but depending on the size of the wedding I may decide to have an assistant with me. (This is at my discretion and is no extra charge).I can offer a second shooter for an addition price.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
I charge per event depending on which package you would like.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Yes I am really flexible on tailoring my packages to suit my clients.
What are the forms of payment?
A deposit of £50 at the time of booking which reserves your date. Then the final amount due is 4 weeks before your wedding date.
How do you work?
I generally like to be as discreet as I can when photographing weddings to keep things natural and not staged. However there are times when I have to be more direct and I will always help whoever I am photographing to feel relaxed in front of the camera.
Do you offer engagement shoots?
Yes, I do. I really encourage these if possible as it allows me to spend time with couples before their big day. It also gives us the opportunity to get to know each other as well as ideas on how to “pose” in front of the camera ready for the big day. Engagement shoots can be at a location of your choice or I can help with some suggestions.
Do you have insurance?
Yes of course! I would be silly not to.

Everyone has commented on how gorgeous they are!
Now that I have had time to look through and digest, I wanted to say how happy I am with them!Sent on 15/08/2019
They are so natural and you have really captured not only how happy and relaxed everyone was on the day but also the venue and flowers within the gardens. Everyone has commented on how gorgeous they are! The packaging of the photo usb and little personal details like the wooden initials and lavender from the garden, really made it so special. Thank you so much, I couldn’t recommend more xx
