• How do we book you?
Firstly, I always like to meet my clients for a ‘no obligation’ chat to discuss their requirements and learn about their day. This can either be a meeting in person or a skype / phone call. This is a good way for me to get to know you and you to know me as well. In order to secure your wedding date, you will need to sign a wedding contract form, complete a pre-wedding questionnaire, and pay a 15% booking fee.
• What style of photography do you offer?
My main aim is to provide you with a set of images that reflect the story of your day, therefore my style is very much grounded in documentary wedding photography. However, I do appreciate that family like to have a few group portraits, and will happily plan and coordinate these with you before and on the day.
• How many photographs will we receive from our wedding?
Typically, at a wedding I will shoot over 4000 photographs. I then spend time editing all the best images for you – removing photos where you are blinking or in mid-sentence. I don’t limit how many photos that I give you but you can expect anywhere from 300 – 600 photos depending on the length of the day.
• How long until we receive our photographs?
I work hard to make sure that your wedding photographs are ready as soon as possible without compromising on quality. I aim to have your wedding photographs completed and ready within 6 weeks from your wedding date but more often than not it is much less that this.
• What equipment do you use? do you have backups?
I use two professional Sony mirrorless digital cameras with a set of high performance prime lenses. I always have a backup camera, lenses, flash guns, batteries and memory cards on hand if anything goes wrong.
• How long have you been a photographer?
I graduated with a BA Hons degree in Photography in 2005. In 2006, I photographed a friend’s wedding, loved it and progressed from there. I now currently shoot 20/30 weddings a year.
• Are you insured?
Yes indeed! :) As a full-time, professional I am fully insured for both public and professional indemnity and have all the paperwork to show if required.
• How far do you travel?
There is no limit at all. I travel all over the UK and love to travel internationally for destination weddings abroad. For the UK, all wedding prices are fully inclusive of any travel costs within Cornwall & Devon. Additional travel costs are quoted for weddings outside of Cornwall and Devon.
• My fiancé and I feel a little awkward having our photo taken, how can you help during the wedding day?
Believe it not, I feel the same so don't worry, we are on the same page there! However I am super calm, relaxed and do my best to blend in to the background so not to bring attention to myself. As my style is focused on genuine documentary, just ignore me, be yourselves and enjoy your day. The only time you will be aware of the camera is during any family photos and portraits
• How can we use the high resolution photographs?
The high-resolution photographs come supplied on beautifully presented online gallery which is password protected. From here you can download the high-resolution files, print high quality prints and canvasses, send photos to your friends and family, share them on Facebook or use them in any other way you can think of.
I would love to be considered for you wedding photography, please get in touch with your date and any questions and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
