Our wedding might be outside of your immediate area, can we still book you?
Yes of course. I am always happy to work anywhere in Devon, Somerset and Dorset. Some of the towns and surrounding areas that I work in include Bampton, Barnstaple, Beaminster, Bideford, Bridport, Bridgwater, Chard, Crediton, Crewkerne, Cullompton, Exeter, Exmouth, Honiton, Langport, Lyme Regis, Newton Abbot, Okehampton, Paignton, Seaton, Sidmouth, Taunton, Tavistock, Teignmouth, Tiverton, Torrington, Torquay, Totnes and Wellington.
Can we meet you before deciding to book?
Of course, it would be fun to meet and I think that it is very important that you like and get on with your photographer. I am more than happy to meet up for a chat with no pressure of booking, so that you can see if I might be the photographer for you. If you are live away from the area and a meeting is difficult we can always chat on the phone or via Skype or WhatsApp if you prefer.
How far ahead can we book you?
As far as you like as it pays to reserve your date once you know it. I am currently booking weddings up to two years in advance. Prices quoted for weddings booked in advance are guaranteed not to change.
How would you describe your style?
I am a natural light photographer and like to tell the full story of your day with pictures by capturing the laughter and emotion on peoples faces. I want my images to capture the mood of the day and give you something to look back on in years to come. I focus not just on the couple but also on your guests who pay such a big part in your day.
What happens if I am nervous about being photographed?
Most couples say that they feel worried about being photographed but try not to worry about this. I offer very gentle direction, a great sense of humour and will never put you into awkward poses. Just knowing that your photographer has done this many times before means you can trust that I know how to get the best from you on the day. How you are looking and feeling on your wedding day is what I aim to show in your photographs.
We like your informal style but will you take group shots for us?
Yes of course. I will happily take any formal shots you need for your day. I will always ask for a list of proposed group shots before the day and will be happy to provide a suggested list of shots for you to use as a starting point.
Do you require a deposit?
Your booking should be accompanied by a 10% deposit to secure your date. Unfortunately I am unable to reserve a date until a deposit has been received.
When do we pay you?
Full payment can be made at any time after you make your booking. If you are local you can pay when you see the photographs or before if you chose. If you live away from the area your photographs will be sent to you by Royal Mail special delivery and payment would be required before the day. All payments can be made securely online.
Do you have any extra charges for anything?
There are no extra or hidden charges ever.
How do we get our pictures?
Images are supplied copyright free on a memory stick.
How many photographs will you take?
There is no limit to the number of photographs I will take on any day. The number will vary depending on the length of time I am with you and how many guests you have. Normally a minimum of 250 images are supplied and anything up to 400 or maybe more. Smaller ceremonies with only a couple of guests will mean less images proportionally.
Do you provide black and white images?
Your photographs will be edited in a mixture of colour and some black and white.
How long before we get our images?
They would normally be ready in 7 days or sometimes less although this can vary according to the time of year.
Can my guests take pictures too?
Yes of course, guests taking their own pictures is a very important part of the day.
Do we need to feed you on the day if you are photographing our reception?
You can of course and I am always super grateful but I certainly do not expect to be fed so I leave that with you.
How long do you stay on the day?
It depends on the length of your booking but I always agree a start time with you and never leave till I have checked in with you to make sure there is nothing else you need.
Do you ever photograph more than one wedding a day?
No never, my sole focus will be you and your day.
Do we have to choose from one of your set packages or can we create something just for us?
No, I can cover as much or as little of your day as you like! Let me know exactly what you are after and we will work together to create a package especially for you.
Are you insured?
I am fully insured with professional photographic insurance, which covers my equipment, public liability and professional indemnity.
