Q: How would you describe your style of photography?
A: If I had to pick three words to describe it, I would say “candid”, "natural" and "fun" .
Most of the time I like to capture people as they are and an event as it really happened, so usually I am not too involved with what’s going on and trying to manipulate it. I take a step back most of the time to let things unfold naturally, don't get me wrong I'm not antisocial I love a good chat and I will with pretty much anyone, so I won't be a scary odd person who is stern and just watching things unfold. Every now and then I will step in and give direction and suggestions, but I am definitely not a control freak or someone who likes to pose people very much.
Q: What does “full day coverage” mean?
A: Every wedding day is different. If you need me to start at 8:30 in the morning, I’m there. If you are planning to have fireworks near the end of the night and want me to be there, I got your back. I have nowhere else to be that day and no other jobs to go to, my day is your day. I do ask for us to come up with a “start” and “finish” time for me though, so there’s no confusion about when I’m turning up and leaving.
Q: We’ve paid our booking fee, when do you need us to pay the rest?
A: Firstly, thank you very much for that and for choosing to work with me. Your non-refundable booking fee secures your wedding date in my diary. All I ask is for the remaining balance be paid four weeks before the wedding day at the absolute latest, via bank transfer or cash, by instalments or in one go - the choice is yours.
Q: How long will it be until we get our edited wedding photos?
A: Wedding season can be very hectic for me, and weddings do take a while for me to sort through and edit properly. I always try to get your wedding photos sent to you in a timely fashion, but also not to rush them, so they are of the best quality. The shortest time I've sent wedding photos to my couples is a week, the longest is four weeks.
Q: How many edited photos do we get?
A: For a full day wedding shoot, I give my couples an average of 500 colour edited photos. That doesn't include the black and white edits I also do. If a photo doesn't work in black and white then I don't do a black and white edit.
Q: Can we, our family and friends order prints of our wedding photos from you?
A: Absolutely! If you have an online photo gallery, which is standard in my wedding photography packages, you, your family and friends will be able to look at the photos and order prints too. All you need to do is give them the web address and the password to access the gallery, which I will give to you as soon as I get it set up, and it'll be live online for 12 months after that.
I hope you found this helpful and happy wedding planning!
