My style is reportage based.. covering the story and the emotion of the day as naturally and un-obtrusively as possible; and with gentle direction for the group photos and romantic couple shots.

Fuji Cameras.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Not currently. Images are sent via digital download, and are copyright-free.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I email over a few images the week after the wedding, so you have something for social media etc.. Following this my final edit is normally completed around 8-10 weeks after the wedding (although it can take longer in peak seasons).

Do you send all the photos taken?

I edit everything I take, with the exception of duplicates or eyes-closed shots.. which I delete in the edit process.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I always work alone.. I like my work to be my own..

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

I have photographer friends with a similar style I can call on (subject to their own availability).. or would offer a full refund should anything happen to me and I not be able to make it. However in over 13 years and over 800 weddings I've only had to cancel once, and that was due to Covid, and having to isolate.

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

Yes my images are copy-right free.

What's your cancellation policy.

If customers cancel their booking for any reason they do lose their deposit/booking fee (as per my terms and conditions), however should something happen to me (ie hit by a meteor etc) you would receive a full refund :)

Excellent Photographer!

Sarah was amazing from the start! Once booked, she kept me up to date with any information I needed to know and was so friendly and warming. We didn't actually meet up at all before the wedding but as soon as she arrived on the wedding day I was completely at ease! She captured the day perfectly and made everything so romantic and natural. She found shots which suited our 1950s vintage theme and made it really personal to us. It didn't feel like just a generic photo shoot. Everyone has loved our wedding photos and our best man has actually booked her for his wedding this year! I can't thank Sarah more for giving us the perfect gift to enjoy for the rest of our lives together!
