My booking fee is £400 which fully confirms the date for you. The remaining balance would then be due 28 days before the wedding.
How much is your booking fee?
Yes, I have professional indemnity and public liability insurance should your venue request this.
Are you insured?
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.
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.
how many photos do you take at my wedding?
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. If visiting Southend-on-Sea isn't convenient, I am also more than happy to meet you virtually on a video call.
where are you based?
how long do you spend with us on our wedding 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.
I will travel anywhere in the world, and I am more than happy to fly abroad for your wedding.
what areas do you cover?
you look young, are you very EXPERIENCED?
Thank you! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years and have shot over 600 weddings. Yes, I have a baby face!
do we have to feed you on the day?
No, I do not write into my contract you must feed me. Most of my clients however very kindly offer me a meal, especially ones where I am attended for 9 hours +.
how safe are our photos?
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.
how long until our pictures are ready?
After the wedding day, I aim for you to be able to see your edited photographs in around 3 weeks.
what if your camera goes wrong?
I have backup equipment for everything! Multiple cameras, lenses, flashguns, batteries… everything is covered!
can we meet you before the day?
Definitely. If anything, I will recommend you meeting me before you even book me. Photography is such a personal service you want to make sure that I am the right person for the job.
