I have put together some of the most frequently asked questions that I receive in hope that some of them may be helpful for you. If the answer to your question isn’t on this page, please do not hesitate to get in touch however!
• How much is your deposit?
My deposit is £400 which fully confirms the date for you.
• Are you insured?
Yes, I have professional indemnity and public liability insurance should your venue request this.
• How soon should we book you?
As soon as you know you want me to photograph your wedding, I would suggest you book me then. The last thing I would want is you to leave it for a while and then when you come to make a booking I have already got another wedding for that date.
• How many photos do you take at my wedding?
This is a hard question to answer, as it will depend on a number of factors. For example, how long I am with you for the day, the number of guests you have, etc. To give you an idea, from a usual wedding day from Bridal Preparations through to the first dance, most of my couples receive between 350-450 fully edited photographs.
• Where are you based?
My office is in Southend-on-Sea, and I am more than happy for you to come down and visit me. This will give you a chance to take a look through some of my albums and get to meet me too. Photography is a very personal part of your day, and it’s important for us to meet beforehand to make sure I am the right match for you.
• How long are you with us on the day?
My standard collection is from the Bridal Preparations through to the First Dance however you are also welcome to ask for the hours that suit your requirements and I will provide a quote bespoke.

Your photographs are backed up onto a second hard drive, as well as into the cloud. Therefore the photographs are in 3 different places to avoid any problems.

After the wedding day, I aim for you to be able to see your edited photographs in around 3 weeks.
