Do you have public liability insurance & professional indemnity insurance?
Yes to both
Can friends & family view my images?
Yes! You will have access to a password protected online gallery of your images, live for 30 days from the date I send you the link. They will also be able to download low res versions from this gallery.
Will you travel?
Of course! Love to. I'm based in Hampshire (near Southampton) but happy to chat about travelling to wherever you may be! The package price includes travel within 30 miles of Southampton and it's £150 extra if over that distance. If your wedding is abroad I ask that flights, accommodation & transfers are covered.
Why are some images black and white and some in colour?
I like to include a mixture in the finished collection, it's part of my style! Although sometimes, if it's a great picture in terrible light, turning the image black and white can save it. If there are any black and white images you'd like to see in colour, just let me know but it may not always be possible.
Are you DBS checked?
Can we have a second photographer?
Yes, depending on availability! Just ask for more info.
How long until we get our photos?
Family shoots are delivered in 1 week and weddings in 3 weeks. But don't worry, there will be previews during that time!
Do you do group shots?
Yes I do but I try and get them done quite quickly! Your booking form will include a list for you to fill in so we know how many we're doing and who we need on the day. It's a great idea to have an usher round everyone up.
How much is the deposit and when is our balance due?
For weddings I take a 20% deposit along with the contract to secure your date. The final balance is due at least 28 days before the wedding. For family shoots it's a £50 deposit + contract to secure the date with the balance due at least 7 days before.
Do you need anything to eat on the wedding day?
I'd be extremely grateful if a meal could be provided for me on the wedding day. Although more than happy to sit out of the way somewhere, so please don't feel you need to squeeze me into the seating plan!
How many photos will we get?
For weddings you'll get at almost everything I've shot. Everything is fully edited images on a branded wooden USB. For family shoots you will get at least 40 images sent via Dropbox or Wetransfer. There will be a mixture of colour & black and white images.
Can we print from our USB & share the images on social media?
Yeah! I just ask that you don't make any copies of the USB, don't edit/add filters on social media (this goes for any images I deliver) as it changes the look & style of my work, and don't use the images for commercial purposes.
