HOW MUCH IS THE BOOKING FEE AND WHAT IS THE BOOKING PROCESS?
I require a 20% booking fee to secure your date (the remainder of the balance is to be paid 6 weeks before the wedding). A booking fee ensures both parties are covered in the event of cancellation or the contract being ended.
You'll also be sent a short questionnaire and an online contract to complete. If we don't meet before the booking is made, we will certainly meet around four weeks before your big day where we'll go over all your plans, timings and a shot list while eating copious amounts of cake with a coffee.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO BOOK?
I book out up to 2 years in advance for some dates so my advice is - contact me sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
Do you shoot destination weddings?
Yes - they're my favourite! Get in touch to talk to me about your destination wedding and I'll put together a bespoke package for you.
ARE YOU LGBTQ FRIENDLY?
Absolutely yes. Love is love. Your wedding is no different to any other wedding.
DO YOU SHOOT UNUSUAL WEDDINGS?
YES! Honestly, I love unusual weddings! Oh, you're both covered head to toe in tattoos? Awesome! You're dog is your best man? Amazing! You're getting married in an abandoned warehouse and the theme is halloween? Incredible!
ARE YOU INSURED AND DO YOU HAVE BACK UP GEAR?
Of course I'm insured and I always carry a two camera bodies with multiple lenses. I am rather clumsy so if I drop something or have some kind of malfunction, I will have other equipment to use.
HOW LONG AFTER TO WE GET THE IMAGES OF OUR WEDDING?
I aim to upload your online gallery within 6 weeks, however, I do try my best to work quicker. 6 weeks allows me to be a mum to my two boys, complete other galleries as well as putting 100% effort into your gallery. I am a perfectionist and so your gallery needs to look perfect before I send it to you.
I HATE POSING FOR PICTURES SO I THINK I WILL STRUGGLE. WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?
I know exactly how you feel! I hate being in front of the camera and I even dislike people looking at me while I take a photo (hence a very natural style). It's awkward, I get it. I find laughter is the best way to overcome any nerves and don't worry, I won't pose you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable. If you were feeling particulary anxious about being in front of the camera then I would recommend booking an engagement shoot which can help you feel more relaxed.
DO YOU OFFER A SMALLER PACKAGE WITH LESS HOURS?
This is a tough one. I do have just the one package on my website which includes all day coverage as I love spending all day with you capturing your day from bridal prep to first dance. However, I will of course consider half a day of coverage if you were to contact me with your date and plans.
WE LOVE NATURAL PHOTOS BUT STILL WANT A FEW TRADITIONAL FORMAL GROUP PHOTOS FOR OUR PARENTS. IS THIS OK?
Absolutely fine! My style of photography is very laid back capturing all the fun as it happens but I can always fit in a few group shots. I would ask that you try and keep it to a minimum of around 10 groups to ensure there is a lot of time for you both to enjoy your day with your friends and family.
HOW DO WE BOOK?
Thank you if you've made it this far! You can book by contacting me through the contact page, through my Facebook page or even through Instagram (if, unlike me, you actually know how to work Instagram). Include as many details about your wedding as possible and I will get back to you as quickly as I possibly can. I can't wait to hear from you!
