How far do you travel?
I am happy to travel anywhere in UK or Europe. Fair fee will be added to cover travel costs
Can we meet you before booking?
Yes, of course. I am based in Nottingham so if you live near by we could discuss your plans somewhere over a coffee. if you are from afar, then Skype video call would be best option.
Do you do photography full time?
Yes, wedding photography is my full time job. I put lots of time & effort into every wedding to create photos that you will treasure forever.
When will we receive our finished photos?
I publish a little preview, usually 3-5 images few days after wedding. Full set is finished within 3 weeks.
How are photos delivered?
Photos come on USB in gift box, as well as private online gallery, that stays online indefinitely. I will also make HD slideshow set to your favourite music.
Can we print photos ourselves?
Yes, as much as you like. I will send high resolution photos optimised for printing on USB, no watermarks. Same Images in low resolution optimised for sharing on social media are also included.
How many photos do you convert to B&W?
Every wedding is different, but usually 30-40% are in B&W. I do like colour as much as B&W, but some photos simply don't work well in colour.
Do you keep backup of our photos?
All photos that you will receive on USB are backed up indefinitely. I keep physical copies at 2 different locations + 1 copy online. In case you would lose your usb, I can resend your photos easily.
When do you normally start & finish?
If you would like photos of getting ready, I usually start about 2-3 hours before ceremony. If not, then I start about 45 minutes before ceremony to capture guests arriving & finish 30 minutes after first dance.
Do you do any formal group photos?
Even though my style is about documenting day as it happens, I am happy to do few family group photos. I would say 6-10 is good number, what usually takes 10-20 minutes.
Can you do a few portraits of Bride and Groom?
Yes, of course. I keep portrait session very relaxed, no stiff poses or asking you to smile. I will find best backgrounds beforehand, so 10-20 minutes is usually enough.
What if you camera breaks down?
It never happened but it is a possibility. I carry 4 cameras to every wedding and selection of lenses so I am well covered, just in case.
Do you require a meal on the day ?
No, I am happy to bring my own lunch, but if food is available, it would be appreciated.
Do you work alone?
Yes, I prefer to work on my own, but I can offer services of second photographer if it would be suitable.
