The sooner the better. Once your date is secured with me then you have one less thing to worry about. And the earlier you book the cheaper your monthly payments will be :)

No

What is the charge for traveling?

Within reason I don't charge for travelling if I can help it :)

What style of photos do you take?

Other (I don't like to limit myself to a style. Depending on the venue affects how I work. But generally i would say i'm an organic photographer. I would rather get the natural shots over the posed)

What kind of technology do you use?

Digital

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I try to be discreet when i'm not with anyone. By that I mean I will walk around the room and look for those natural laughs and smiles. That way I can capture the natural shots

What kind of equipment do you use?

Both of my cameras are Professional DSLR's. So if one memory card fails it automatically has a back up. And if the camera fails. I have a back up for that too

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Yes, secure online link to your photo's which you alone have the link and password to. From there you can share with with friends and family around the world

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Yes

How do you charge extra time?

All the timings are worked out on the Wedding Walk through which happens a few weeks before your Wedding date :)

What are the forms of payment?

For payment i prefer Online Banking, but i can also take payments via Paypal, Cash or Cheque. For each I send you a receipt straight away

How do you work?

I work by building a rapore with you both. That way you both are relaxed, I am relaxed and I can be a little creative with the shots sometimes and you both have the confidence to ask for shots

    Amazing photographer!

    We were really struggling with finding a photographer we trusted but once we stumbled across Karl, we knew straight away we had to go with him! He caught some really magical moments on our special day and I can’t wait to receive our finished photos.

    Unprofessional

    Response at the beginning was brilliant and obviously wanted our custom. At the beginning I didn't know the watermark was going to go all the way across the pictures so we couldn't use them for anything. Pointless offering our pictures thar can't be used. This is where we loose money as you have to pay another £300 if you wanted all your photos unwatermarked.

    On the the day of wedding, he was stressed. He moaned he had to share time with my videographer, he didn't know what photos he wanted to take, moaned about size of the room, moaned about lighting. My guests were agitated by his lack of skill and knowledge to what he wanted to do. Feedback from my guests said this too. He wore jeans and t shirt so stood out from my wedding. He wasn't planning on taking photos of us at wedding breakfast which was planned but disappeared for 4 hours from breakfast which had opportunity to take photos for speeches and the singing waiters we had. Also the photos outside took longer because of simply editing people out on pictures he waited lengths of time for non guests to move out of picture on a very sunny day on the beach. Didn't do many natural photos which I mentioned to him. Felt really let down at the end as he said he didn't do as many photos as he wanted to, yet he wasted the time and was unprofessional. And when recieving final editing of photos to choose from was only about 200 for entire day, and I had to ask him to edit a lot that wasn't edited properly to standard. E.g removing himself from pictures. Very disappointing

    A huge contribution to making our day special

    As a person Karl is lovely, as a photographer you couldn't want more.
    He manages to come across as though your talking to a friend when your nervous but the professionalism comes through to put you at ease. Our photos are beautiful, and some are so quirky. He really has a gift for not just capturing the people in the pictures nicely, but he really captures the emotion and he captured it in our pictures forever. He really helped make our wedding an amazing day.

    We had Karl as our photographer and photo booth for our wedding. He put us at ease as soon as we met him and explained everything. He was honest, thorough and professional. I would definitely recommend the guest book he does too.

    Friendly photographer

    Karl photographed our wedding back in 2019. He was amazing, talented & very professional. He kept in contact running up to the wedding and then afterwards while preparing are photos and wedding album. I always recommend Karl whenever someone needs a photographer.
