Q. You are based in Essex but do you travel for weddings? A. Yes. I’m more than happy to travel, I'm also more than happy to travel abroad if the need arises
Q. Do you have back up equipment? A. Yes, I always carry a minimum of two cameras and multiple lenses at every wedding. I back up all photography to a secure cloud service, multiple memory cards and RAID level hard drives insuring your photos are safe.
Q. Do you use flash at all? A. I want to be as unobtrusive as possible when photographing weddings so I mainly work with the available natural light, using high performance lenses. I use flash in very specific circumstances, it is not something I rely heavily upon in my work
Q. Do you take formally posed group shots? A. Yes, of course. Although I am mainly a candid documentary style wedding photographer, Most weddings require traditional group photos., this part of the day I organise very quickly,. I request a list of group shots you/your family would like prior to the big day.
Q. How many photographs will we receive?
A. Every wedding is unique and different. No two are the same. So the number of photos delivered varies from wedding to wedding. However, from 12 hours of coverage it’s usually around 300-400.
You will receive a full set in colour and a full set in black and white.
Q. Can we print our own photographs? A. Yes, of course, you can make as many prints as you like. You will be able to see all of your images via your password protected online gallery which will also be available for friends and family to place orders and view your photos.
Q. How do we book? Please Contact me any time so that I can check my availability We can meet up to discuss your wedding and requirements To confirm your booking I will need a completed contract and non-returnable deposit of £150 which is usually paid via bank transfer.
Q. What preparations do you make for a wedding? A. I like to catch up with the couples I shoot for, meet and consult as their wedding is a very big day in their lives - It needs to be captured how they want, as much as humanly possible. About three months before a wedding I send a questionnaire to my couples requesting information of the final details
Q. I hate having my picture taken - Can you help? A. Don’t worry, very few people like having their photo taken. My approach is letting the day happen - stepping back and documenting you and your guests interacting naturally and looking happy together. I promise, after a while you'll forget I'm there!
