Frequently Asked Questions
What is the price of your service?
I can provide a range of services from covering just a small part of your day to the whole experience from bridal preparations to the first dance and beyond. I have bespoke packages from £800 but can create an experience you will love. Get in touch for more information.
What services do you offer?
I provide digital photography using full frame professional cameras with a range of lenses. I edit my own photos to ensure a high quality image and am happy to provide a range of printed products. I create wedding albums using an Italian printer and can provide parent albums for others to also cherish your day.
All images are provided as digital files as standard for your own personal use. t/his is provided on a unique USB stick or a CD. Images can also be printed and presented in a luxury presentation box in individual mounts.
How far in advance should I contact you?
While I am happy to shoot weddings allayer round I would advise to get in touch to secure a free no obligation consultation and we can ensure i am available for your special day.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
I never cover more that one wedding a day as your wedding day is your special day. I spend the day focussing on getting the best images for you. If i had two weddings on the same day, i wouldn't be able to give you my whole focus which is not fair for you.
Are you able to travel?
While I based in Somerset, i am able to travel across the whole of the UK and beyond for destination weddings.
What is the charge for travelling?
I am happy to travel for free for up to 20 miles from South Petherton, Somerset. Distances further will be charged at 40p per mile.
Do you send all the photos taken?
After the wedding I go through and load the images onto a separate Hard Drive. I then go through the images and check for quality. It is possible to take over 1000 images on one camera for one day. I make sure all images that are sent to you are of a high quality. As a member of the Guild of Photographers I adhere to their code of conduct for wedding photographers.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I work closely with another local wedding photographer and will assist her with larger events. We have an arrangement where if we are available we will assist each other. This is particularly useful for catching more unassuming images to get a more natural feel to the images.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
The images are your memories from your special day. While I retain the overall copyright to the images i do understand that you may not want your images used as part of my portfolio or advertising campaigns. You will have the opportunity to opt out of this usage for your photos.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
I can be flexible to your needs. If my packages do not seem quite right for you then I am happy to discuss hourly rates. If you are on a budget I am happy to do part of a package and then design an album at a later date. Every bride and groom will have the digital files and a selection of print files as standard. That way even if you are watching your budget, you will have printed memories of your day.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Weddings can be stressful and after the ceremony everyone wants to relax and celebrate with you. For this reason I understand that your initial timings may not be kept to. We can discuss realistic timings during our no obligation consultation. This way I get to know what you expect and can ensure you get this from my services.
How do you charge extra time?
While I am happy to stay longer if timings are not perfect, if you wanted something specific that we have not discussed which would require a considerable time element there would be an hourly rate to be agreed.
