Frequently Asked Questions


You’re probably new to this, so it stands to reason you’ll have a lot of questions and concerns. I’ve listed some of the more popular ones questions and answers here.

My style for most of the day is documentary. However, for the couple photographs, my fashion background helps to produce a mood which is beautiful and vibrant.

On the day I’m friendly and chatty, which helps to relax people around me.

I travel throughout the UK and to all destinations abroad to join you for your wedding.

All couples receive 300+ (three quarter day) or 400+ (full day) un-watermarked, high resolution photographs to print and share. They’re in a mixture of colour and black & white – typically about a quarter are black & white.

In addition, you may also choose a beautiful bespoke designed and built wedding album if you’d like one. I don’t automatically include them, since not everyone wants one.

Nothing that would restrict you.

You may do anything you like except sell them – which let’s face it, would be a bit weird!

For a full day wedding, wedding days are usually around 9 to 11 hours.

This is usually 2-3 hours before the ceremony to half an hour after the first dance. But if something exciting is happening later on, I’ll not ditch you … and I always check that we’ve finished everything before I leave.

If you choose a three-quarter day, you may choose for me to not cover the bridal preparation or the first dance. So, I’d either be there from the bridal preparation to the speeches, or the ceremony to the first dance.

My style has been developed from both my fashion background. That produces a style which has a focus that’s different to others in the market.

My attention to detail was also born out of my fashion photography and I spend more time in post production than other photographers.

Incredibly rigorous!

My camera has two cards in it and the photos are written to both on the day. When I’m home, the photos are copied to two hard disks as well as offsite into the Cloud. Finally, I keep one of the original memory cards in a fire safe box.

Yes, typically there are around 6 to 8 and they take around 20 to 25 minutes.

Most definitely!

You’ve spent a lot of time on deciding on these. Typically I would photograph the shoes, dress and flowers, and the venue and table details, wedding cake .. and anything else which I see.

It’s been over a decade now so I suspect it’s between 200 and 250 weddings.

Flattering, bright and airy would describe it best.

Yes, I come to every wedding with at least two of everything.

I have a bag full of lenses, a couple of camera, multiple flashes, plenty of batteries and way too many memory cards.

For nearly all of my weddings I prefer to work alone.

You choose me because of my photographic eye and after so many years of honing it, I can’t find anyone who can replicate that. However, if you need a second photographer, it is usually possible to organise.

Yes, I’m fully insured, as are any others who I bring to your wedding.

I can provide a copy of my insurance certificate if needed by your venue and I can also increase my public liability cover of £2m if necessary for any particular wedding.

I have a fantastic network of local photographers who would be able to take over the wedding for me .. but I’d have to be really really ill to not attend your wedding.

I may have, but it doesn’t matter if I haven’t.

I work at a many new venues every year and know how to get the best from each as I turn up.

I have the simplest process.

You fill in a quick form and pay the retainer invoice that’s sent to you, usually online using a card. And then you’re done!
