frequently asked

I live just on the edge of the Peak District in beautiful South Yorkshire, England. I frequently travel for weddings throughout the UK and abroad. 

Many of the weddings I shoot are in London and the South East of England, so it's not uncommon to find me traversing across the UK. Since I travel so frequently, my quotes always include any and all travel costs.  

My coverage ranges from one-hour civil ceremony coverage to multi-day events. I always aim to include everything you may need in your package, including travel throughout the UK, edited and retouched digital images, an online proofing gallery and high-resolution images. Please note, for prime weekend dates, I only book out full day packages.  

For my detailed pricing menu and to confirm your wedding date is available, pop me an email.
If you’re planning an affair that differs from the traditional schedule, I’m happy to create a bespoke quote just for you. 

Shoot me a message to check your wedding date is still available. After that, we can meet up for a free consultation over a cup of coffee or a cocktail and talk about your wedding! If you’re not local to me or I'm not passing through your area any time soon, we can still have a face-to-face chat over Zoom.

When you’re ready to reserve your date, I'll send you a booking form to make sure I have all of the important information. After that, it's just a 30% initial payment on the invoice and a signed contract to make everything official.

To keep things simple, I include travel and accommodation throughout the UK in all my full-day packages. Whether you need me in the Scottish Highlands or even all the way down south in Cornwall, there are no extra costs involved.

For engagement sessions and hourly mid-week wedding coverage, I may charge extra for travel depending on the location. If you’re further afield, I’m happy to travel to your destination wedding. I offer a flat rate “European Coverage” option that is just one fee that covers all travel costs.

Yes! Most definitely! I have full equipment and public liability insurance. Even if you do not choose me as your wedding photographer, please ask this question to your prospective photographer, as this is very important.

I’ve never missed a wedding (cross fingers, touch wood!). I do spend a lot of time networking with other photographers throughout the UK. I know if something happened to me, I would be able to call on a photographer I trust to cover me.

During our client meeting, we can talk through my backup plan options, so you can rest assured that your wedding will be covered.  

Most definitely! Depending on the size of the wedding, I will have a second photographer with me. This will always be another photographer that I trust and has a high-quality standard.

Like most professional photographers, I do maintain the copyright to the images. If you have any questions regarding privacy, or would not like your images appearing online, please let me know. We can discuss a clause to be included in your contract that can address your concerns.

I most certainly do! I photograph all images in colour and then convert certain images to black and white during my editing process. You are welcome to request black and white copies of images in your proofing gallery.

Images are delivered via direct download from your viewing gallery.

Prints can be ordered through the online gallery. One nice feature of the online gallery is that you can share the password-protected link with your family and friends, and you don’t need to worry about distributing the pictures to them.

I also sell beautiful bespoke albums if you’re interested in having a lovely handmade album as an heirloom.  

Your privacy is incredibly important to me.

I will never give your details out to a third party or put your name on a mailing list. The information I collect as a part of your inquiry and booking process is needed to make sure I have all the important details of your wedding day. You can request your images be removed from my website at any time or ask for the accompanying text to be anonymous.
Your online gallery also has privacy controls, so you can control the privacy of your images when you’re sharing them with your friends and family.

engagement sessions

Perhaps you and your fiancé have never been photographed professionally, or you may feel uncomfortable being photographed. You may not like the way you look in photos. This is all completely normal, but it’s why I like to meet you for an engagement photo session before the wedding. It gives us a chance to get to know each other and I can see how best to take photos of the two of you. It may also help you relax ahead of your wedding day. You’ll get to see how I work and how I pose you for photos. You can also give feedback on what you do and don’t like to ensure you love your photos on your wedding day!

Engagement sessions usually last 1.5 hours, whereas the photos I capture of you on your wedding day may only take 15-20 minutes. Spending time together at your engagement session will help us get the most out of our time together on your wedding day, leaving you free to get back to the party!

Engagement sessions can be a fun and relaxing time together. We’ll go out on the hunt for great backgrounds and beautiful light. There can be a bit of walking, so bring comfortable shoes to change into, and some extra layers should the weather change!

It’s completely up to you! You just need to let me know what time of year you’d like to have your engagement session so I can send you a list of my available dates, then you can select one that works best for you both. My busiest period is between April and October. 

Is there somewhere that has special meaning to you as a couple or a part of town you just love? I’m also happy to suggest a few places to add into the mix! If either of you think you might feel uncomfortable being somewhere public, I would suggest choosing a quieter location.

If you’d like to be photographed in a public park (particularly any of the Royal parks) we may require a photography permit. It’s also good to think about the weather and have a plan B if you don’t want to be photographed in the rain.

FAQs from Photographers

I’m so glad you’re excited to learn more about wedding photography. Unfortunately, I only use a small, select group of experienced professional photographers as second shooters at a wedding.  

On occasion, I have opportunities for non-shooting assistants to come along on a shoot or a wedding. Please feel free to ask me anything regarding getting started. I promise I’m friendly and I won’t bite!

I also offer 1-to-1 training and feedback. Please message me for more information and pricing!

Mid-2017 I switched from Nikon Full Frame cameras to Sony Mirrorless Cameras. Any current blog post will be 100% shot with Sony Cameras.
