FREQUENTLY asked QUESTIONS
How far in advance should we book?
I take on a limited number of exclusive weddings per year and tend to get booked 9-18 months in advance. The sooner you book the better as my diary can fill up quickly.
Can we meet before we book you?
Communication and connection is at the heart of what I do so I highly recommend we have a chat before you secure your date with me. We can do this in person if we’re local enough or over zoom if that’s not possible.
When will I receive my photos?
You will receive a selection of preview photos in the week following the wedding. This allows you to have professional photographs to share instantly and something to use on your thank you cards. Your final full online gallery will be with you within 10 weeks of your wedding date.
Do you travel?
Yes! I’ve captured weddings from Cornwall in the west to Kent in the East. I also have two bases in Hampshire (Fareham and New Forest) and a sister in London where I stay for weddings in the South. I love an adventure and have been flown out for destination weddings in Mexico, Italy, France and Bali. If you’re planning a destination wedding you can find out more here.
Should we have a second photographer?
I highly recommend having two of us capture your wedding day for so many reasons: both your mornings can be captured, both of your expressions as you first see each other at the aisle will be documented and more photos of your guests to name a few. I also highly recommend two of us for weddings with over 70 guests. Take a look at this blog post which explains why I think second photographers are worth their weight in gold!
Do you require a deposit?
There is a £500 non-refundable booking fee at the time of booking. This secures your wedding date in my diary and makes sure I don’t book anything else on that day. This deposit also covers admin costs between booking and paying your final balance.
What if you're sick and can't attend?
If you’ve booked a second photographer, they will take over as your main photographer and we will source you a new second photographer. If you haven’t booked a second photographer we will call upon our trusted and talented associates to step into my place for the day. They will then hand the photographs over to me for editing in the style that you love and I’ll deliver the rest of your service as agreed. However, I’m so proud to be able to say that I’ve never ever missed a wedding!
Will you photoshop us?
I wholeheartedly believe in promoting body confidence and self love but I do understand you want to look your best for your photographs. I will remove blemishes which aren’t permanent (acne, bruises, skin rashes etc). I will also make sure the shape of your dress is correct. If you are specifically concerned about something then please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate while posing and in post-production.
