Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the price of your service?
My Ceremony Only package is £250. My Pre-Ceremony and Post-Ceremony packages £400 each. My Full Day package is £600
What services do you offer?
I offer an unobtrusive approach to natural, candid, and fun wedding photography.
What does the wedding package include?
My bronze package covers the whole of the ceremony and formal portraits afterwards at one location. My silver package covers the ceremony and formal portraits plus either the bridal (and groom if applicable) preparation, or the reception details, speeches, and first dance. My gold package covers all of the day, from bridal prep to first dance.
How far in advance should I contact you?
I recommend contacting me as soon as you can so I can check my availability, however I may be available on shorter notice.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
No. Even if you book a Ceremony Only package, I will not be covering any other weddings on your day.
Are you able to travel?
Yes. I generally cover Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, but I will do the whole of the UK. Any places outside of my usual area will require a travel expense.
What is the charge for travelling?
I charge 20p a mile outside of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire
What style of photos do you take?
I take candid photographs of moments unfolding naturally. I try not to direct people into poses as I find that the best photographs are of people being themselves. I will do formals portraits efficiently so everyone can get back to celebrating quickly, and for your couples portraits I love to capture the simple dynamic of your relationship.
What kind of technology do you use?
I use 2 Olympus OM-D EM10 cameras, a 12-40mm f/2.8 lens and a 35-100 f/2.8 lens, a 50mm f/1.2 prime lens, a 25mm f/1.8 prime lens
Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?
I tend to use natural and ambient light where possible. I use bounce flash and fill flash if needed.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I use 2 Olympus OM-D EM10 cameras, a 12-40mm f/2.8 lens and a 35-100 f/2.8 lens, a 50mm f/1.2 prime lens, and a 25mm f/1.8 prime lens. I also use on and off camera flash with tripods.
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
I will upload teaser photos to my Facebook page, and all your photos will be available on a password protected online gallery via Pixiset
What''s the delivery time for photographic report?
I aim to have your photos uploaded to the album and your USB posted within 6 weeks of your wedding day
Do you send all the photos taken?
You will receive all the photos that are deemed suitable. I will not send duplicates, out of focus ones, or ones where people are blinking etc.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I work alone
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
Do you charge per hour or per event?
I charge per event in packages
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
For the most part, yes. My packages do not state how many hours at this point. I estimate that a Ceremony Only package would be 2-3 hours and a Full Day would be 12 hours. If they are a little longer then that is fine as long as it is within my package specification.If you want me to work beyond the package specification - for example come to the reception after booking a Ceremony Only package - then the difference in package price is applicable. No photos taken in the extra time will be released without payment, and I cannot guarantee that I can meet the extra time requirements at short notice but I will always try my best.
What are the forms of payment?
I accept cash, PayPal, and bank transfer.
