Do you need a professional photographer at a wedding?

No absolutely not. You may have a family friend who is more than capable of taking excellent pictures throughout the day and may well be free of charge. However I do speak with brides who have done this and been a little disappointed with their pictures. Remember that photographing all day and in difficult lighting conditions is not easy, particularly with consumer equipment. In addition consider if that family member will really enjoy the day as they should! Most of my time is spent post processing the images from the day after the event and that often gets forgotten when you get handed a disc of unedited images after your wedding day.

Are you insured?

Yes I carry professional insurance and professional indemnity.

When do you require payment?

I require a 10% deposit at the time of booking and full payment one month prior to the wedding day. This is in line with most professional photographers. You can pay by instalments, cash, cheque or via credit card.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No I set the whole day aside for you, whether you require us for 4 hours or 16 hours. We do not book any other weddings once you have booked the day with us. 

We have a set idea of what we want can you fit in around us?

Absolutely. However I will tell you if I do not think I am the man for the job. If your day is about posing for photographs and lots of group shots then I would suggest that you seek another photographer.

Do you take any group or posed shots?

Ideally the whole day is unposed and natural. I aim to capture images that reflect your day. However I will set some time aside for 2 or 3 specific group shots if this is important to you.

Can you suggest hair and make up specialists, flowers, wedding dress and wedding car providers?

Yes I have a list of people I trust and would happily recommend to you. Just ask me.

What happens if we change our mind after we have booked?

You would lose your deposit but you would not be obliged to pay anything else. If you cancel within a period of time within your contract after you have paid the outstanding balance then you would not be entitled to any refund.
