How far in advance should I contact you?
I am often available at short notice, but the earlier, the better.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
No, just yours.
Are you able to travel?
Yes. I may charge extra to cover travelling costs if you're very far away, but I am happy to travel anywhere in the world.
What is the charge for travelling?
If you are in the London/South East region, no charge. Further afield will incur a charge to cover only the travel costs, not time involved.
What style of photos do you take?
We like romantic shots with soft shadows and rich colours, both posed and candid, but we are happy to discuss the type of photos you would like and are very versatile. We can do something different according to your preferences and have a excellent editing skills so w can give your photos a style and feel of your choice. Wealways include a black and white set of your photos, along with the standard set.
What kind of technology do you use?
We use professional grade DSLRs and lenses for shooting, and an iMac running Lightroom and Photoshop for post production editing. We also utilise We Transfer to send you your photos (unless you'd require another vector, like CD or USB).
Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?
We're adept at working the floor at a wedding without being too intrusive. We're very friendly and approachable, so if you or your guests want to grab one of us for a pic, this is always okay (unless you stipulate otherwise). We also like to get some time with the newlyweds for a more private shoot if possible. We believe the single best way to go about my job is to cultivate a good relationship with you so we can gain a deeper understanding of what you expect. Sometimes a couple will say they don't want anything in particular and would prefer us to do everything in a more spontaneous way, which we are totally happy to do, and this can sometimes yield stunning results despite the lack of prescribed criteria.
In short; I'd like to meet you, preferably face-to-face (although a phone call may be sufficient) so we can talk about everything you would like and get to know one another just a little. In this way I can ensure that you are confident about my role, and you can get on with enjoying your wedding day.
What kind of equipment do you use?
Our main kit consists of a Nikon D810 DSLR, Nikon D750 DSLR, a 70-200mm F2.8 zoom lens that gives beautiful bokeh and pin sharp focus; as well as 20mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm prime lenses, all F1.8/F1.4 for the best quality shots possible.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I work with my wife, Kizzy, who is a talented wedding photographer, so you will always get two photographers when you hire me.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
I know a handful of excellent wedding photographers, who could cover for me. The cost for this would be covered by my insurance. I've never had to use someone for this reason though as I pride myself not just on talent, but on professionalism, integrity and reliability too.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
This is something we can discuss. I would like to keep the rights to them because your wedding day may look stunning on my website. I have shot weddings where the clients have been very uncomfortable with having their photos published, and in these rare cases I forego the rights.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
Per event, although I am happy to discuss prices for short jobs.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
I'm always happy to do this. All things are possible with a little discussion.
How do you charge extra time?
We charge £100 per hour, or part thereof, if you'd like us stay past the agreed time.
What are the forms of payment?
We usually take payment by bank transfer and will take a £150 deposit to secure your date. The balance is invoiced for once your photos are ready for you.
How do you work?
As professionals (and a married couple), we understand the importance of your wedding being special and unique. As such, we pride ourselves in working according to your needs.
