Q. What is your style of wedding photography?
A. I specialise in creative, reportage photography. I aim to capture the true feeling of the day with lots of candid shots of guests enjoying themselves along with some set up shots of the bride and groom. I feel a good mixture of shots creates the best flow for a wedding album. I also do any family shots you would require although this is sometimes best kept to a minimum to allow time for good spur of the moment shots.
Q. How long before we get our photos?
A. I aim to have your online album ready to view within 8-12 weeks (sometimes sooner)
Q. Can our friends and family view images online?
A. Yes, as wedding guests come from all over the country and overseas , online viewing of images is ideal. Each wedding is placed online for in which you can purchase prints with all major credit and debit cards. Thereafter prints can still be purchased directly through me.
Q. What equipment do you use?
A. I use two Canon digital SLR cameras with a range of prime lenses.
Q. Do you charge mileage?
A. I cover weddings up to 50 miles from Midsomer Norton, thereafter the cost is 44p per mile.
Q. Do you have insurance?
A. Yes, I have both public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
Q. How do we make a booking?
A. At the booking stage I simply need your contact details and ceremony and reception locations if available and a deposit to secure the date!
Q. When is the balance due?
A. The balance is due two week prior to the wedding. At this point I also ask you for the itinerary of the day and any family shots you require.
Q. Can we make prints or an album from our USB?
A. Yes, you can make prints or your own album. I would always recommend using a good quality lab for your prints as they colour correct the images which matches their printing equipment.
Q. Who owns the copyright of the pictures?
A. The copyright always belongs to the photographer but as mentioned before you can make prints for your own use.
Q. Will you put our wedding on your blog?
A. Yes, I would put most of my work on the blog at some point. If this is something you did not want then just inform me of this, not a problem.
Q. Do you put our pictures of Facebook?
A. Yes, I usually will put a selection of photos on facebook for you and your family to see. I always check with the couples first that this is ok.
Q. How long will you stay at our wedding?
A. I usually stay until the first dance is done what ever time that may be.
Q. Do we need to provide you with a meal while we are having ours?
A. Of course not, but some couples do provide a meal for me either in another room or bar area. I would always check that there was somewhere I could get something to eat otherwise I just bring a packed lunch.
Q. Do you do family group shots?
A. I would always recommend you do some family group shots to keep everyone happy. Usually around 5 works well but that can end up being a bit more depending on the size of families. Normally these shots would just involve immediate family which include parents, siblings and grandparents.
