Most frequent questions and answers

My booking fee is £400 which fully confirms the date for you. The remaining balance would then be due 28 days before the wedding.

Yes, I have both professional indemnity and public liability insurance should your venue request this it can be provided to them.

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 400-500 fully edited photographs.

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.

My standard collection is from the Bridal Preparations through to the First Dance (and a little after) 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.

I have been a wedding photographer for 16 years and have shot over 600 weddings. Yes, I have a baby face!

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 +.

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.

I have backup equipment for everything! Multiple cameras, lenses, flashguns, batteries… everything is covered!

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.
