Frequently asked questions

Here are a few questions that I am often asked and also a few that I think people would like to ask if they weren't so polite.

 

Q. What sort of photographer are you?

A.  I like to think of myself as being a 'documentary style wedding photographer' and in the main, the majority of my work is exactly that. It's candid and unposed and represents what is really happening rather than everyone standing on ceremony for hours on end. However, I still enjoy taking family group photos but I try to make it fun and I don't take too long about it. Also, I like to take a few shots of the Bride and Groom in more of a creative fashion or bridal magazine style. 

Q. How much experience do you have?

A. I've been a photographer for more than 30 years but shooting weddings since 2004. 

Q. What can we expect from you as part of your service?

A. I'm not really into long winded complicated packages so I offer a premium service which includes a pre-shoot, all consultations, unlimited time on the day, all edited images on USB or download, a password protected online gallery for friends and family to view at your discretion and I'll usually price any albums and products separately after the wedding. Depending on distances and locations, the price will be all inclusive. However, I'll be happy to give a bespoke quote to clients that want a reduced coverage or a midweek booking.  

Q. How many photos will we get?

A. On average I shoot in excess of 1,000 images often more, and I edit to a final set for my clients of around 400 edited magazine quality images which are generally delivered within a month after the wedding. You'll need to choose around 100 of your favourites for me to design and build a well balanced album if you'd like one. There's lots to choose from and I have samples. 

Q. Are you insured?

A. Yes, I have full Public Liability insurance and I am also DBS checked. 

Q. What happens if you are ill or cannot attend the wedding?

A. Firstly, this has never happened and I don't ever expect it to and I would have to be on my death bed or stranded on a desert island to not turn up for your wedding. I understand the need to answer this one properly though and if that ever happened you would be provided with another photographer, one of a number of other professionals that I associate with plus a compensation payment of not more than 25% of the total paid.
