Wedding Photography Frequently Asked Questions
How would you describe your style?
I spend most of the day letting events unfold, and capture moments that tell the story of the wedding, without getting in the way. Although I like to take some portraits of the bride and groom, I mostly follow the emotion, and try to capture real moments, with a sense of artistry, composition and light.
Do you have insurance?
I have full insurance to cover any mishaps that can happen. So far, I haven't had to use it - but you can never be too careful!
Do you have back-up equipment?
I'm a naturally cautious person, so I make sure that I always carry multiple cameras, SD cards, lenses and batteries.
How many images will we receive and do we get usage rights?
I usually deliver about 400-600 images per wedding. You get full rights to print and share the images on social media, and I retain the copyright.
Do you do group photographs?
Group shots are often important for couples and their families. I usually do 6-8 per wedding, and ask for a finalised list in advance, as well as the services of an usher or bridesmaid to help me round up the key people!
Do you photograph in colour and black and white and do you edit all of the images?
I would estimate that I delivery 90-95% of images in colour, and the rest in black and white.
Have you worked at our venue before?
A recce is a crucial part of my workflow, so if I haven't worked at a venue in the past, I make a point of visiting it before working there, to get a feel for the light, and the layout.
When will you deliver the photographs?
Images are usually ready 4-6 weeks after the weddings - sometimes sooner!
Where are you based and how far will you travel?
I am based in west London, but will travel far and wide. For weddings that require an overnight stay, I usually charge a small amount to cover travel and accommodation.
What is the booking process?
I ask for a £300 advance payment to secure the wedding date, followed by payment in full 2 weeks before the wedding date.
Can we meet or chat?
Yes! Meeting prospective clients is one of my favourite parts of the job, and it's a good opportunity to have a relaxed chat about your big day, and my approach.
