Wedding Photography FAQS

• How do you approach a wedding and what makes you different?

I offer an honest interpretation of your wedding day; while I try to remain discreet when working, its often pretty apparent that I’m the guy with the camera as I will be following you both around all day, standing at the front of your service and arranging any small group shots.

I like to think then that my photographs are about the interactions that occur on your day wedding day that are captured around the formalities that exist.

I’ve also won awards, been published in some prestigious publications and even been exhibited in LA. I use my spare time to travel and document my experiences and I bring all of this to the way that I approach your wedding.

• Have you always photographed weddings?

Before I took up wedding photography I was a mental health nursing assistant for over a decade. These experiences enable me to integrate myself within new environments and groups of people fairly quickly, and despite being the guy with the camera, I’m often just another guest too and this means that I’m able to capture lots of the things that happen that you often don’t get to see.

I also have experience of working in lots of different light and weather conditions and have a list of kind words to support the fact that no matter the size, location or weather, you will have a beautiful collection of photographs that document the people and events that go into creating the next chapter of your lives together.

• Do we get to see all of the pics?

Due to the candid nature that I aim to achieve, there are often shots that get culled because they are similar to a better one or because of a limitation in terms of people moving and blinking, etc. As an average I deliver around 250 – 300 photographs from each full wedding that I cover and often more. in terms of a ten hour day this is around one produced for every two minutes of my attendance.

• Do you process the images?

All images are processed by myself and presented in colour & B&W. I use colour-managed equipment and licensed software to ensure that the images you receive are of a high professional, technical and industry standard.

• How long do you stay for on the day + Do you work alone?

A typical wedding day for me starts at around 10.00 or 11.00, allowing an hour or two to cover preparations and then coverage until the first dance or 9pm ish. Staying later on into the day is possible though so please get in touch to discuss your plans.

I do work alone as I find that I am able to absorb myself within the day without distraction.

• What happens if the day runs over?

As is sometimes the case, with hurried last minute preparations and late arrivals, to uncle John going missing during the group shots and the groom going for a snooze just before the first dance is scheduled, wedding days can run over the scheduled time line. On the day if this happens I will liaise with you both and give you the option for me to stay later if this is feasible given bookings the following day. The charge for this on the day is £200 / hour.

• Do we need to meet before the wedding?

I arrange all communication through email and conduct appointments using video calls via Facetime or Skype and failing that I find that a good old phone call works!

I get in touch with everyone that books around 6 weeks before the wedding to discuss the order of the day and any group shots that you might like and also some ideas for some shots of you both together (if thats what you want). I will provide plenty of suggestions during this planning call.

• How soon do we get our photo's + do you supply photo albums?

I aim to get photographs back within 4-6 weeks, however for weddings photographed during peak months this may be 10-12 weeks.

If you are interested in putting an album together, please let me know and I can send you a brochure for the album company that I work with. A draft design can be made online and emailed to you so that you can make comments regarding any adjustments that you would like making before it goes to print.

• Do you take any formal / creative portraits of the newly weds?

Its completely up to you guys, some weddings that Ive covered have had no formal photography throughout the day, however most that I photograph will have a 10 – 20 minute session at some point.

• Are you insured?

I carry full public liability and professional indemnity insurance. If you or your venues require proof of this please let me know.

• Do you take Formal Shots?

Yes, if thats what you want me to do. I believe a small number of close family group shots can be an essential part of your wedding photography collection. I recommend no more than 6-10 however, so that time is not taken away from your reception and in order for me to concentrate on the storytelling that I look to capture for my clients.

I can also offer some help in the planning of these to ensure that all boxes are ticked succinctly and that you have some family photos to hand out at christmas. ;-)

• How much is the retainer and how soon should I book?

The non-refundable retainer depends on the package that you book but is typically £150 and is deductible from the final balance. I advise booking as soon as you are in a position to do so as I take work on a first come basis.
