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 4-6 weeks depending on whether it’s peak wedding season, but fear not, you’ll get a sneak peek of up to 10 photos within 3 days 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.
Do we have to have an engagement shoot?
Not at all, this is optional and included in the Full Moon package, but you don’t have to have one. I think engagement shoots are a great way for us to get to know each other before your big day and to get you feeling comfortable in front of the camera if you’re a little nervous! It’s also a chance to dress up and have some fun!
How far will you travel?
I mainly work in the Cotswolds but I’m happy to travel all over the country!
Weddings over 75 miles from my home (approximately 90 minutes drive) will be charged an accommodation and travel fee for the night before and the night of your wedding. This avoids any nightmares of me getting stuck on the motorway and being late, or 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 and I can provide what you’re looking for. So we can have an initial call through zoom or chat in person before committing!
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 we will have a meeting over video call or in person to discuss all the timings and details of your wedding day so we can iron out any timing complications in advance! 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! 2022 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 photographers 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.
