Answers to some frequently asked questions...
If you have any more questions then please get in touch, I would love to help!
How do we book you?
You can get in touch either via e-mail or phone. If I am free for your date then we can to meet at my home in Edenfield for a informal chat. Alternatively we can chat over the phone about your wedding plans and ideas. Your booking is secured with a £200 non refundable deposit. There is some paperwork for myself and your wedding folder, you know you have one:) .
How far do you travel?
I mostly photography weddings in and around the North West of England, Yorkshire and Cumbria, but will travel further if you want me. I charge 75p per mile outside of a 45 mile radius of my home address. Overnight accommodation fees of £100 will also be added to my all day fee if travelling out of area. Please ask for a personal quote.
Are you insured? What equipment do you use?
I hold full public liability and professional indemnity insurance. I use D810 & D800 Nikon cameras and mixture of fixed, zoom and wide angle lens. I always carry an extra kit including spare cameras and batteries to ensure that your big day goes without any hitches. My top of the range equipment enables us to shoot with natural light where ever possible, giving stunning atmosphere to your images. I strongly advise all my couples to invest in their own personal wedding insurance to cover them in case of any unforeseen events that may effect any part of their wedding day.
What's an E-Shoot?
It's an fun photo shoot where we can to meet up at your venue or chosen local location and take some informal lifestyle shots. Its also a great time to catch up together and a real ice breaker, as most couples book so far in advance. You can have your shoot a few months before you day or as soon as you book if you want your images for something special. Lots of my couples use the images for their invites, save the date and signature frames.
When is the final balance paid?
Your balance is paid 6 weeks before your big day. Around this time i will be in touch to check all the final arrangements.
Do you take group shots?
Yes I do, with my aim to keep shots as natural and simple as possible, taking around 30 minutes maximum to complete your family/friend formal shots. I have a formals list based on a round 10 groups. I send this to all my couples to review before the wedding to make their personal adjustments. Ideally having around 90 minutes after your ceremony ( more if you are having a church wedding with travelling to your reception venue) until your meal is advised. This gives you time for relaxed photography and time to chill with your guests before dinner.
When will my photos be ready to view?
Four to five weeks after your wedding I will have all your images edited and read. All the work is completed by myself and not shipped out to an independent editor. Editing your photography and designing your album is a big part of completing our service.
We would like to add on an album, how does that work?
I will design a contemporary layout to showcase your favourite images. You will then view a proof design layout, advise me of any changes you desire. Once you are 100% happy with the design I will send your bespoke album & parent albums to be printed. Its then shipped straight to your home address.
