Absolutely not! I specialise in camera shy couples because I am super camera shy myself. There’s a reason why you’ll always find me behind the camera and not in front of it. I will blend into your wedding like a ninja so you don’t need to worry about seeing me out of the corner of your eye and suddenly stiffening up as you want to be relaxed on your wedding day and not feel as if you’ve always got a camera in your face.
I always encourage couple who are awkward in front of the camera to have an engagement shoot as this is a fantastic way of becoming more comfortable in front of the camera.
This is entirely up to you. I appreciate that some people don’t like to pose for photographs and this is OK. The majority of my photography is candid shots that capture the real you. However, if you do want to pose then I will make you as comfortable as possible and bring out your inner model.
If you are unsure about posing then I recommend adding an engagement shoot to your package as this will make you feel more comfortable in front of the camera and also inform your decision as to whether you want to pose on your big day or not.
I’m based in Basingstoke, Hampshire
You will receive at least 400 images. I cannot say the exact amount as this will change. I don’t deliver you every image that’s taken as some will not come out quite right or might catch a guest in an unflattering pose e.g. eyes shut.
All images are included in the cost of your chosen package, there are no hidden charges.
It usually takes me 6-8 weeks to turn around and deliver your photos. This will vary depending on the time of year and how busy I am.
All of my couples get their photos delivered via a password protected online gallery. These in high resolution for wall prints and lower resolution for social media.
I can’t say an exact number but I won’t stop taking photos throughout the day. So in theory the amount that I will take is unlimited.
Of course! These are really important, but I promise they won’t take up too much time – my couples normally ask for 4-6 groups.
Absolutely! The last thing I want is to lose your photos because of a hardware or software malfunction. I back up the images to 2 extra hard drives (other than my computer) to ensure that they are safe. I also back up your photos in ‘the cloud’. This means that I always have a minimum of 4 copies of your images.
Only a very serious illness or actual broken bones or like a pen sticking out of my left eye would prevent me from shooting your wedding.
If I am unable to attend I will do my very best to find you an awesome replacement photographer – I have a brilliant network of photographers I can contact. I will then pay them the money you paid me or give you your money back if I can’t find someone.
I currently have 2 bases (Basingstoke and Banbury) so any travel within 60 miles of either is included. Any additional miles are calculated at 45p per mile. This is a large area of coverage, because I’m generous like that 🙂 The map below shows the coverage area included in my package.
Overnight accommodation will also be added to your invoice. However, I will always book cheap accommodation, where available, to keep your costs down.
Of course! I love to travel and also love to capture weddings in different destinations. However, my pricing structure is a little different for weddings abroad so please get in touch to discuss this option.
Whilst being fed is always nice it’s not something that is necessary. If I don’t get fed I consider myself an adequate sandwich maker.
Once I have received the booking fee of £250 and you have signed the contract I can then hold your date. I work on a first-come, first-serve basis.
