If you have any questions regarding my
wedding photography services, or you would like to arrange
a meeting to discuss your individual requirements, you can
contact me by phone, email or facebook.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can we meet you before making
Absolutely! I would be more than happy to meet you
at your home, work (or wherever is convenient) to show you
my portfolio and to explain how I work.
Will you be rushing off to another
wedding after you've finished with us?
Definately not. I dedicate an entire day to each wedding and
I'll stay with you for as long as I'm needed.
What does 'All day photography'
I usually start the day with the bride getting ready 2-3 hours
before the ceremony. Subject to logistics I can also usually
cover some of the groom's preparations too. I then shoot all
day (having a brief break while you're all eating) and then
continue until 10pm so that you get party photos and some
night time shots to finish off. This frequently means I photograph
for 10-12 hours.
What areas do you cover?
I work all over the UK but primarily cover Bedfordshire, Berkshire,
Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hampshire and Hertfordshire.
Will you travel?
Yes, I can travel to anywhere in the UK and Europe. For weddings
in excess of 100 miles from my home near Hitchin, I ask that
accommodation be arranged for me where it is not practical
to travel on the morning or night of the wedding.
What equipment do you use?
I shoot 100% digital using professional Nikon Digital cameras
and lenses and yes, I bring back-up equipment! I also bring
lighting, umbrellas and occasionally a step ladder.
How quickly do we receive our
3 weeks after the wedding I'll supply the proof book and high-resolution
printable files on USB.
What is a proof book?
This is an A4 sized paperback book with all the finished (digitally
processed) images displayed as thumbnails 9 to a page. They
all are numbered exactly the same as the photos on the USB
meaning you can flick through the book and easily identify
photos that you wish to print or share with others. It's great
for taking round to family, friends or into work to show everyone
all the offical photos!
What about the images on the
USB - can I print from them?
The digital images I supply are high-resolution JPEG files
and yes, you can get your own reprints and enlargements from
them as they are not stamped or watermarked in any way.
Do you shoot black and white
I shoot the raw images in colour as this gives the best tonal
variety. In post-processing I convert any that work well as
black and white and give you this option in the proof book
and on disc. I can also produce sepia or spot colour images
How many images can I expect
you to produce?
I will deliver at least 450 finished images from each full
Do you take group photographs?
Yes. In order to keep the disruption to your day to a minimum,
I recommend shooting around 12 group setups and always agree
a shot list with you in advance.
Will you do a venue reckie?
Wherever possible I will visit venues in advance of the wedding
day in order to be familar with the rooms, grounds and facilities.
What about payment?
A non refundable booking fee of £200.00
is to be made at the time of booking, dates will be reserved
only when this deposit is paid. The final balance for photographic
services will be invoiced one month prior to the wedding and
must be settled at least 2 weeks before the wedding day.
