Do you provide us with a contract?
I sure do. This will be signed by me to confirm that I am photographing your wedding. It will be an honest transparent document with no hidden agendas or information. The contract will confirm the venue details, the wedding date, the timings of the day & which wedding package you have chosen.
When do we need to pay you for your wedding photography services?
I take an upfront deposit of £500 to hold the date for you & then the balance is to be paid 4 weeks before the date of the wedding. What equipment do you use? I use Professional Canon bodies & lenses. I also use professional lighting systems which I can set up if the weather turns and the wedding needs to be moved inside.
Do you edit images?
I like to keep shots natural & timeless – I like to get it right ‘in camera’. However if the exposure needs a lift or a skin tone needs to be smoothed I can do this & many of my favourite pictures are converted in to black & white. There are so many different ways to edit photographs these days, yes I can use photoshop if needed to clone or stamp a picture but I prefer to capture images the old fashion way.
Why do you offer a pre-wedding shoot?
Many people are nervous about having their photo taken – will it be cheesy? Will it be painfully embarrassing? I personally love doing the <pre-shoots> as it is a chance for us to get to know each other. Being photographed on your wedding day is made so much easier if we have met in person & I have seen how you guys are together. The positives of doing a pre-shoot are; meeting up, having a coffee, sharing ideas and fears and thoughts about your big day and also finally capturing images of you two together rather than it being a selfie. You really don’t want every photo in your house to be of you both in your wedding gear! There are so many places all over Europe that are beautiful & romantic or locally in Surrey there are many beautiful areas from Alice Holt to Windsor Great Park.
Do you use a second photographer?
When we meet up it is always good to find out how many guests will be attending your wedding & to also discuss logistics on the day. If for example the groom would like pictures of himself getting ready but the times clash then it is a huge advantage to use a second photographer. They are also great at helping to organise guests and can also capture the day from a slightly different perspective. I work very closely with another very talented photographer who can be added to any of my wedding packages for an additional fee.
What is included in my package?
Take a look at my <services> to learn more about the images, USB, app and a whole lot more you will received.

Are you insured?
Yes you will be happy to know I am fully insured & have public liability & indemnity insurance to £2 million.
