Frequently Asked Questions
Answers To Your Questions
What is your style of wedding photography?
Photojournalism with a love of beautiful portraits. For most of the day you’ll barely notice me, I like to blend in with the guests or fade into the background so people forget I’m there! I’m not afraid to get up close and personal for the killer shots, cheeky winks, a solitary tear or the moment your bridesmaid nearly chokes on her drink with laughter.
I always take 30 minutes of the day to be alone with my bride and groom to capture some beautiful portraits, usually when the light is soft and golden.
Other than that I just go with the natural flow of the day!
Why did you choose Wedding Photography?
simple reasons. I love photography, I love people, I love parties. #dreamjob
We love the idea of portraits but not sure we’ll be comfortable posing?
Not many people are – you haven’t met my wife! I try to keep things as natural as possible using natural soft light and natural surroundings. I have techniques that help you to relax and be yourself on camera. If your having a wonderful day it will show on the photos!
Do you do traditional posed shots?
Other than the bride & groom portraits I take a limited number of group photos. I keep this to around half a dozen or so (around 20 minutes) to stop the guests getting too bored. I ask that somebody in the wedding party is nominated to gather people together to help run things a smoothly as possible. I always do the “whole group” shot first.
Do we get all the photos you take?
I take a lot of photos of your wedding! You can trust me to put together a set of highlights that document the day in the most comprehensive way possible. Every image is edited with real care and attention and treated as an individual piece of art.
How many photos will we get?
For all day coverage you can normally expect between 550 and 600 images in a mixture of colour and black & white.
How long will we have to wait receive all of the photos?
Depending on the time of year – between 2-4 weeks.
Will we see any before then?
Yes, I’ll put a couple of sneak peeks on either my blog or instagram page.
Can we share your photos on Facebook / Instagram / Twitter/ Pinterest?
Are you insured?
Yes I am fully insured.
What do you mean by engagement shoot?
It’s a bit of a mis-leading term really. It just means a 1 hour (or so) shoot to get some lovely pictures of you as a couple together before your wedding. It allows you to get an idea of how I work with couples as a photographer and gets you used to being in front of the camera. Or if you fancy something different….
Do you cover the whole of the UK?
Yes, most of my packages include free travel anywhere in England. I will consider going anywhere if it feels right for both you as a couple and me as a photographer.
Can we have a second photographer?
Of course, it’s an optional extra. I have a solid network of other talented pro’s that I work with regularly. Price is based on location and length of coverage.
Do we have to meet you before the wedding?
Not necessarily. I’m happy to talk via Skype, FaceTime or old skool phone call. If We have an opportunity to meet then great. My free engagement or boudoir shoots offer a chance to see how I work and get you used to being photographed before your wedding day.
