Frequently Asked Questions

Who will be photographing our wedding?
Me! You are investing in my vision & experience.
How many weddings have you photographed?
Somewhere in the region of 350 over the past 15 years.
How would you best describe your photography style?
90% of the images I capture are reportage, I love capturing the natural moments, they’re the best parts!
What makes you stand out from other photographers?
You can have all the photography skills in the world, but it means nothing in a wedding environment if you aren’t a people person. I love weddings, I do enjoy making people laugh (especially nervous brides!) & becoming a part of the wedding. I have met so many wonderful families over the years who are now friends and my biggest ambassadors, I can’t say much more without blowing my own trumpet!
Do you have insurance?
Yes I do. I have Public Liability Insurance & Professional Indemnity Insurance.
What equipment do you use?
I have been a Canon shooter since 2005, I have 3 Canon bodies & a vast collection of Canon & Sigma lenses. Additionally I have a huge bag of high speed strobe lights, reflectors, LED lighting panels & even fairy lights!
Can you help us put our itinerary together?
I sure can!
Can you help organise family shots on the day?
This is where my experience pays off. I’m firm but fair when it comes to dealing with guests, particularly family shots, we will organise a group list in place beforehand to minimise disruption on the day.
What is your image backup strategy to ensure our images are safe?
All images are backed up to 3 separate hard drives, 2 hard drives are on site, 1 hard drive is off-site.
How long until we receive our photographs?
If you do not require an album, images will be delivered between 8-10 weeks. If you do require an album, this timescale depends on how long you take to select the images you would like to go in the album.
How many photographs will we receive?
Everyones favourite question! Unfortunately there is no definitive answer, rest assured I will deliver as many images as I can; there is no cap or limit.
Will the images be retouched?
All images delivered will be colour corrected. This means image brightness; contrast and colours will be corrected before being delivered.
Can we share our images on social media?
Of course! You will get a personal image license for all your images, however, this doesn’t allow you to sell the images or use them for commercial reasons.
Do you provide cinematography?
I work alongside some amazing cinematographers & would be more than happy to recommend them to you during our discussions.
We’re having a destination wedding, do you travel?
Yes I do. I have captured weddings in the Mexico, Italy, Austria, Spain, France, Portugal, Ireland & the USA
Can we discuss our wedding in more detail with you?
Definitely, just drop me an email or a call.
