To start off, congratulations on finding your lobster! (Yeah, I'm a total Friends nut!) I hope you haven't stopped showing off that ring since the day it was put on your finger!
After photographing many many weddings, I sympathise with all my couples and the planning that they have to do.
Which is why I tell everyone that I work with that I am always there for them when they need me.
I'll do more than just turn up at the wedding for photos. From the moment your date is booked, I'm there for you both. To talk you through how to get the best out of your shoots with me, what to wear for you engagement shoot, how to pose, working out a photo timeline for your big day. Damn, I even help Bride's put their shoes on and get the Bridesmaids in their dresses!
I always make myself available for my couples whenever they need to chat to me about anything. Even if they've seen a photo on Instagram (I LOVE Instagram!) that they'd love as a shot for their own wedding. Tag me in it! Drop me a message on Facebook or give me a text. I love to keep in contact with my couples, not just as one of their vendors, but as a friend!
My couples are always my top priority. So if you need to meet up for a coffee and a chat, you can be sure that I'll be freeing up some time for you both!
Depending on the distance between us both, I'm more than happy to meet with enquiring couples.
If I feel that the distance is too far to travel for a couple yet to book, I will book you both in for a video call so we can still chat about your big day!
Do we get to meet with you before booking?
The non refundable deposit for your wedding is due upon booking when the contract is signed.
The remainder of your payment is due 4 weeks before your wedding day.
When do we have to pay the full amount by?
All of my couples will receive their photos on their own online galleries 4-6 weeks after their weddings.
Printed products can be ordered after this. Printed products are sent away when ordered. Please contact me for more info.
How long until we get our photos back?
I always suggest to couples that a second photographer is a good idea for weddings of 70+ people. A second photographer captures the wedding from another angle.
Also whilst I'm photographing the Bridal prep, my second shooter can snap away with the guys whilst they're getting ready!
Should we book a second photographer?
Yes and yes! I am fully insured with public liability insurance as well as insurance for my equipment. I always carry at least two cameras with me at weddings, so if the worst does happen and a camera malfunctions, it doesn't mean the photos have to stop.
Do you have insurance and back up equipment?
I take my couples out at least twice on the day. Once after the groups shots/ ceremony so you both have time to celebrate being married. And a second time an hour before sunset (Golden Hour,) when the light is lovely and soft, so we can get some proper dreamy photos!
When do we do our portraits?
I'm always appreciative of couples who feed me at weddings! I'm a fatty deep down. I don't make it mandatory to be fed at weddings but please feel free to ask if you do want to feed me, but don't feel bad if you don't want to.
Do we need to feed you?
