The most popular questions I get asked.. in a few easy steps!
During the wedding consultations I often get asked some important questions. I have detailed a few here to give you a head start! But this is not an extensive list, you are free to ask me anything you want.
Where are you based?
I am based in London and Oxford wedding photographer, covering all of the UK and abroad. Especially the London and Devon areas which is included of travel. Certain areas of the UK will look to have a small milage fee included. This is normally 20 miles outside of London. I am also a destination wedding photographer. Having previously covered Atlanta, Malta, Qatar, Santorini and also a wedding photographer Italy.
Do you have insurance?
Yes. I have public liability insurance to 5 million, professional indemnity instance and kit cover. And can provide a copy to your venue if they request this.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes. This is £200 to secure your day. This is non refundable and will mean the day is fully yours.
Do we have any paperwork to fill in?
Yes, although only a small amount. It is important that the agreement is signed, as this can be a long relationship with some couples booking more than 2 years in advance. This contract informs all parties what is expected of each other as well goes into editing, delivery etc. You will also have a booking form with all the important details I would need to know for the day- this would be my go-to document. These are provided via e-sign for a simple process. No printing required!
Do you do engagement shoots?
Yes, as a creative wedding photographer in London I think these are a great idea, these come automatically with the 10 and 12 hour package but can be removed if you don’t want this. Or you can add an engagement shoot onto any of the other package you would like.
I wish to tweak my package, is this possible?
Of course. All packages are a guide and we can add or take away items as required and I can provide you with a tailor made quote.
Are we able to pay the amount in instalments?
Yes, this is completely fine. We can discuss payment terms and decide the best steps forward. Noted down on your account and invoiced when you need them.
When will we receive our images?
Depending on the time of year, this can take 1.5 weeks for proofs, between 3-6 weeks for your USB, but ideally this is delivered beforehand. Albums are around 4 weeks from design.
How many images do we get?
This depends on the package you have. But it is normally anywhere between 400-700 images.
Do you edit all of the images?
You get to select your own images. And out of these images they will each be individually edited in my own signature style as you se on the website.
Are we able to print our own images?
Yes,these come print ready at high resolution without watermarks, so you do not need to order prints through me.
Do we provide you a meal on the day?
It is always lovely to be offered this, as this can be a very long day and anything over 8 hours has this in my contract. But I never request anything special, whatever is easiest for you and your caterers. It also means I can re-fuel and perform much better.
I want to look at ideas and props. Can we talk about this?
Of course. I love to plan ideas with couples, the more the merrier. Send me Pinterest ideas or boards and I can alway source certain propels if needed. I often use smoke and other things in my images to create fashion inspired images.
How long should we leave for group and couple photos?
I would say at least an hour and a half minimum. As this allows you time to mingle, enjoy canapés as well as get the time in for group shots and the private couple moments. This allows things not to be rushed and have a mixture of all of these elements. These parts are my signature style, it is what makes me stand out from other photographers so make sure you give me enough time to create some magic!
Do we get the RAW images?
No. I do not provide any un-edited images. Like most photographers, we do not send out any work that is un-finished. As you are hiring me for my style. This is half how I photograph and half how I edit.
Drop me and email and say ‘Hi’ and we can get a coffee or chat over the phone to speak about your day. I would love to hear from you.
