the ‘need to know’
That you have found my website and get that little tingling feeling when looking at my images speaks volumes to me. It suggests to me that you are interested in something different from your wedding photography, something unique, and also that you feel that I could be the person to create this vision with.
I am humbled every single day that I am able to document life in this way. I am in love with ‘feelings’ and what better a day to encapsulate all of the ranges of our human emotion? You will laugh, you will cry, you will panic and you will let go. I will be there to capture those moments. That’s something rather special, isn’t it?
My intention is to exceed your expectation on every level. Be safe in the knowledge that I will do the best job possible and also that I care about the day. That I will be part of it. That I will chat to your grandad about photography and help your mum make cups of tea in the morning when she’s feeling a little panicky. That I won’t spend the whole day rounding people up to stop and stare at the camera. That isn’t my passion.
My couples are also those who trust themselves. They are people who believe that their wedding day means that they are able to spend the rest of their life with their best friend and isn’t just about the one celebration. They don’t mind too much about stressing over flower arrangements if they can create interesting table decorations with DIY plant pots or herbs and they are confident in putting their stamp on the day and simply having a good time.

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
Please contact me with as much information about your day, and your ideal budget, for a bespoke quote!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING WEDDINGS?
2018 will be my seventh full time year, I’ve documented over 250 weddings in the UK and abroad.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Lets have a chat on the phone first! I love to get to know my couples and your plans for your day – every one is so different. If you then want to go ahead and book me in I take a £500 booking fee plus a signed contract.
HOW LONG UNTIL WE SEE OUR IMAGES?
I will send you your slideshow direct to your email within 5 weeks of your wedding, and usually it’s closer to 4. Once you have confirmed that you’ve seen that I then email you the link to your online gallery with the full collection.
DO YOU OFFER A PRE WEDDING SHOOT?
Not within the package at present, but I 100% love to be involved with them. I would recommend that if you are thinking about a pre wedding shoot at all, that you read this post all about the importance (or not!) of them. Let me know in your enquiry if this is something you may like and we can discuss it further.
DO YOU STILL DO THE FORMAL GROUP SHOTS?
Yes absolutely! I recommend no more than 6-8 and usually that includes parents, then immediate family and of course the wedding party itself. You are sent a questionnaire before the day to fill in which lists my suggestions, and gives you the opportunity to add your own ideas.
DO YOU NEED TO HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED OUR VENUE BEFORE?
Most definitely not. I’ve photographed the same venues before, sometimes months or even years apart and I’ve truly found that it makes no difference. I don’t approach weddings in the way that others may do – some photographers will do the same poses at the same backgrounds multiple times and I much prefer to be more inspired with my work. To provide you with a collection that nobody else has; same venue or not.
HOW MUCH SHOULD WE DIRECT YOU?
I work much better when I’m trusted to photograph your day as I see it. I rarely direct or pose anything, the best shots are always when they are least expected and it’s far more important to me to have a laugh with you and your guests so that everyone relaxes around me rather than spending all day bossing people about! The same applies in reverse, if I’m being told where to be or what to photograph then you just won’t get as genuine a collection of images.
Having said that I do love a Pinterest board and it’s always nice to see a couples’ vision of the day so I’m more than happy for you to send any of that over to me so I can have a looksee!
