Frequently Asked Questions

Here you will find the answer to some of my frequently asked questions by Brides and Grooms. This information is really useful for getting an idea of what I offer as well as some of the finer details. After you have had a look through these questions, why not get in touch and see if I can assist you further.

How long do you cover at our wedding?
My packages are all Full Day coverage. This means I cover the whole day, without compromise, from Bridal Preps through until after the First Dance.

Where are you based?
I am based in Lancashire but work all over the North West and North Wales. I love traveling and if you need me to get on a plane, just pay for the airfare and accommodation. For destination weddings, please get in touch for a bespoke quotation.

How long will it take before we get our photos?
Usually I will have them to you within 4-5 weeks. You’ll even get a sneak preview a few days after your wedding.

How much is the deposit?
You will need to pay 20% at the time of booking to secure your date. The balance is due one calendar month before the wedding.

What will you wear at our wedding?
My usual attire consists of black shoes and trousers and a dark shirt. I want to be smart but subtle and also flexible.

What areas do you cover?
I cover the entire UK and abroad however the majority of my work takes place in the North West.

Can we meet up before we book?

Most of my clients opt for a Skype or FaceTime meeting nowadays as we all lead very busy lives however I can certainly make time to meet you. Due to my incredibly busy schedule, if you do want to meet me in person, before booking, it would need to be in the Fylde Coast area.

Do you offer album design?
Yes, please enquire for details. If you have something specific in mind, just ask and I’ll see what I can do. I also offer the full range on Folio albums which can be seen here.

What happens if you are not able to attend on the wedding day?
It’s never happened to me yet but don’t worry, I am part of a special network of photographers, one or more of which are on standby for each wedding I shoot. In the extremely unlikely event that I not able to attend your wedding, a selection of photographers of a similar standard will be offered to you as a replacement.

Are you insured?
Yes, I have public liability and professional indemnity insurance for all UK wedding venues.

How many photos will I get from my wedding?
Of course this depends on your wedding but typically, its between 350-450 individually edited images.

Do you take formal group shots?

I can absolutely do that if requested, although I encourage couples to limit this to around 20 mins which is around 8 group shots.

Can we print or make copies of the images?
Of course. Once I hand the images to you, they are yours to do with as you please. The only restriction is that you can’t sell them for commercial purposes.

What if I don’t like having my picture taken?
That’s fine. Most of the day, you wont even know I’m taking photos but for those who are camera shy, I recommend a pre-wedding shoot. This will help build your confidence and you’ll soon realise the camera is nothing to be afraid of.

Can we buy prints and photo products?
Each of my packages included a private client gallery where not only can you view all your photos, you can also order a huge range of professional quality prints and photo products. This service is fulfilled by a UK based, professional printing company called One Vision. You can also download your photos from this online gallery.
