Where are you based, and where do you travel?
I’m based in Newcastle upon Tyne, and shoot weddings anywhere on the planet.
Can you hold a date for me without a booking fee?
Sorry, but I can’t. To be fair to everyone, and due to the volume of enquiries I receive, a date is only reserved on receipt of a completed booking form and deposit.
How much is your booking fee and how do I book you?
A booking fee of £500 together with my standard booking form takes your date off my availability list. As soon as these are received, your booking is confirmed and I’ll send you an invoice and receipt for your non-refundable deposit. Full payment is required no later than three weeks before your wedding.
Do you charge for travel?
I do. For weddings in my area I charge per mile. For all other weddings a standard expense fee applies to cover travel and accommodation.
The image files on USB stick…. can I make prints from them?
Of course you can! I encourage it. I always grant my clients full personal use with their supplied images. High resolution with no watermarks.
Do you have Professional insurance?
Yes, 100%, absolutely. As every reputable business should have.
Will you take any posed formal photos of me and my wedding party?
Of course I will. It’s important you have a photographic record of your family and the people that are important to you. However, I strongly suggest you limit your choices to no more than ten choices. These images will quick, fun, and mostly informal. Please understand my trademark style is mostly documentary, and I’d much prefer to see you guys back with your friends and family, happily mingling with a glass of champers in your hand.
Do you love what you do?
What happens if you’re ill on the day?
I’ll replace my bottle of water for Lucozade, take a couple of paracetamol, and possibly have a perturbed expression on my face for some of the day. It’s happened, I’m sure it will happen again. I’ve never yet been unable to cover a wedding I’ve been booked for. Although, should this happen, and I really really couldn’t make it, I have ongoing arrangements with some of the best wedding photographers in the region. Your wedding will be photographed.
Can we meet and have a natter?
If you’re local, then definitely. We can do this whilst booking, or if you’re busy we can leave it until a couple of weeks prior to your wedding. Or lets arrange a Skype call over a cuppa.
Do you ever shoot more than one wedding on the same day?
How many photos can I expect to receive?
I average around 300 individually edited and polished images per wedding.
