When is best to book in for my consultation?
I get fully booked a year in advance, So please do book in your consultation as soon as possible.
Consultations can take place within your own home or my studio, Once booked you will be contacted to confirm your preference.
How long does it take before I receive my photos?
Its stipulated in my contract that i aim to have your photos with you within 28 days, however you will receive your password protected viewing and sharing gallery with sneak peeks within 24 hours and the rest will be added once edited (usually within 28 days).
Are you insured?
Yes, I have public liability and indemnity insurance as well as cover for my equipment.
What happens if your equipment fails?
I always bring along a back up camera, SD cards and equipment to use when needed.
Do you visit the venue prior to the wedding?
Yes, where possible i will visit your chosen venue so i can get an idea of the surroundings, and meet the staff.
Do you attend church rehearsals?
Yes, If possible it is always best for me to come along as this gives me an idea of how your ceremony will be conducted and it also gives me a chance to meet the vicar/priest to see if they have any strict policies regarding photography.
Please bare in mind some churches and registrar offices will not allow me to take photos when you are signing the register.
Do you allow other photographer's to capture the day?
No, It is stipulated in my contract that I am to solely photograph your day. The reason for this is if someone is hovering over me trying to capture a shot I have set up, I wont have your full attention and photos can be ruined by you looking at the wrong lens, also it can pose a risk to myself and others as weddings are very fast paced at times and I need to be able to move around quickly and if someone is behind me or above me it could cause an accident.
Photos can also often be ruined when people have their cameras out during the ceremony so it is my recommendation that you have an unplugged wedding and ask your vicar/registrar to announce for photos not to be taken during the ceremony.
Ask you guests to sit back, relax and allow me to do all the hard work. Trust me its a more enjoyable experience and after all that's what you are paying me for!
Will I be entitled to unedited Raw photos?
No, All images taken by myself are copyrighted which means nobody else can alter or edit them, I spend a lot of time editing your wonderful photos to match my style of editing, an edited photo is a finished product. I highly recommend you view my images to get a example of my style before booking in your consultation.
Do you Travel?
Yes, Distance is no objective as i love to travel.
Iv photographed weddings all over Yorkshire and beyond.
Packages do include travel up to 25 Miles, and £2 per mile there after.
To offer my clients as much flexibility as possible, I can take the deposit payment via cash, or bank transfer.
This is only required on signing your contract, at your initial consultation.
When you have your initial consultation you will have a chance to not only view a few images, but full galleries and how they are presented to you, The consultation also gives you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
The balance payment can be paid via installments or in full with the final payment being due 1 month before the date of the wedding.
I hope this information has been of help to you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
