Personally I like to be as well informed as possible before booking anything! I’m a sucker for being organised! Below are some of my more frequently asked questions, but if you have any questions that aren’t covered please add them to your message in the booking form!
When will I receive my gallery?
Your gallery will be ready in 6-8 weeks depending on whether it’s peak wedding season, but fear not, you’ll get a sneak peek of around 30 images within one week of your wedding for sharing on the gram and so forth!
Do I need a second photographer?
A second photographer is ideal if you’re having a large wedding and don’t want any of the action to be missed! Also, if you want coverage of you both getting ready in the morning and you’re not at the same location this may be necessary! I wish I had magic powers but unfortunately I can’t be in two places at once!
Do you take a deposit?
Yes, I take a 25% deposit to secure your date so no one else can nab it and to cover admin costs. The remaining sum will be due one calendar month before your wedding date. More details on this are covered in the T&C’s.
How Do We Receive Our Gallery?
Your gallery will be created on an online platform called Pic-Time, when ready you’ll be sent a link to your gallery and from there you can download all of your images in high res! You have the option to hide any photos you don’t want guests to see, you can also make a favourites list and order prints from the store – all super easy! And even better you can share your gallery with your guests by sending them a link and then they can also download and order prints without having to hassle you to do it.
How far will you travel?
I mainly work in the Cotswolds but I’m happy to travel all over the country for the right clients! I am also taking on a handful of destination weddings each year.
Weddings over two hours away from my home will be charged a set fee to cover hotel accommodation and additional fuel costs. I will always stay nearby the night before the wedding as this avoids any nightmares of me getting stuck on the motorway and being late. Depending on location I may also stay the night of the wedding to avoid falling asleep on the way home!
Can we have a chat before booking?
Yes! I think it’s important we have a chat before booking to make sure we’re a good fit! If I’m free on your date I’ll always arrange a zoom call to talk you through all the details and see if we vibe!
What happens after booking?
After your initial consultation and once the contract is signed and the deposit is paid we are good to go! I’m here to support you during the lead up to your big day so if you have a query feel free to get in touch! Around 4 weeks before your wedding I’ll send out a questionnaire and we will have a meeting over zoom to discuss all the timings and details of your wedding day so we can make sure I’ve got all the deets! Organised huh!
How do you keep our photos safe?
I use two cameras throughout the day and both have dual sd card slots which means every image is duplicated, so if one card corrupts the other one still has all your images! Once your day is complete all your images are uploaded to multiple places to keep them safe.
how far in advance do we need to book?
Once you have secured your wedding venue you should be looking at booking your photographer! 2023 in particular is going to be crazy busy for the wedding industry so it’s best to book at least a year in advance if you can to get your dream photographer!
what happens if you're ill?
On the rare occasion that I cannot make it to your wedding, due to sickness or unforeseen circumstances, I hold a list of photographer friends who are happy to cover in an emergency. These photographers uphold the same standard as myself and we will do everything possible to provide satisfactory cover for your wedding day. All being well and me not being in a coma etc, I would then edit the images myself so you’d still get the same style!
