Frequently Asked Questions

What cameras do you use?

I use professional Nikon cameras and lenses and I always carry a backup just in case. So, don’t panic, I can assure you I will always have a suitable camera to capture your special moments

 

Do you just photograph weddings?

Yes, I am a full-time wedding photographer and portrait photographer. I sometimes take on different projects. So, if there is anything I haven’t covered on my services page please fill out my enquiry form with your requirements and I’ll get straight back to you.

 

Can you provide the raw files after the Wedding??

I deliver to you beautiful images with a print license so you could get your images printed. All my images are fully edited. And capture the moments of your big day so you can enjoy them again and again.

 

Do we need to cater for you on our Wedding Day?

Not exactly, I appreciate being offered the opportunity to be included however I much prefer the option of eating separately from your guests but I’m sure you can appreciate I’ll be on my feet, working hard all day so being fed and watered is very much appreciated. I don’t take pictures while people are eating so this is the time I normally have something to eat while you guys enjoy your Wedding Breakfast.

 

How long does it take to edit our wedding?

I try to have all the editing completed in less than 6 weeks and your images ready to view on your own private gallery. If you have ordered an album this will take longer as I take great care in designing my albums.

 

Do you do a discount for weekday weddings?

Yes, I class Monday – Thursday as a weekday wedding (not including bank holidays)

 

What is the booking process?

The easiest way to book is to fill the form out on my website. Then I will email you back and arrange a meeting so we can have a chat about your big day. If this is not possible because of distance we can have a nice chat on the phone. It’s important that we are singing from the same hymn sheet and that we get on, if we don’t I can point you to the right photographer for your needs.

 

Do you take last-minute Bookings?

Yes, click here to view my page on last-minute bookings and why you should always give me a call as soon as you can.

 

At what point is our wedding date booked and secured?

Your wedding date is secured once you have paid the deposit of £250.

 

How much time do you need for photographs on the day?

The more time we have the more we can do. However, on average, for formals I require at least 35 minutes, I start with the full wedding party group shot, then work our way down the list of shots and let people leave after each shot so not everyone is required all the time. A typical formal shoot list would look something like this:

  1. Full Wedding Party Shot
  2. Grandparents / Elderly Guests and Children
  3. Parents

Then finally it will be time for the couple shoot, I normally need around 20-30 minutes for this. In the summer we could push this to after the wedding breakfast.

For feature shots (hero shots)  I normally set them up and then come and grab you, this saves you time to enjoy your big day!

 

Do you travel and is there a fee?

Yes, inside Yorkshire is free of charge, but outside of Yorkshire, I may add a small travel fee. For location weddings overseas please get in contact.

 

 Are you fully insured?

Yes, I have public liability, professional indemnity and equipment insurance. If you or your venue would like to see my public liability certificate please just ask.

What Happens if you are sick?

If I am sick on your wedding day one of my professional photography friends will cover the wedding for me.

 

We are only having a small intimate, half-day ceremony. Will the cost be the same as your full wedding package?

Not necessarily, I do have a standard wedding package offer but all requirements are discussed during our initial meeting and any further discounts will be discussed then.

 

What if we have to cancel our wedding?

I understand that circumstances change and dates may need to be altered which is why I take a £250 deposit at the time of booking. This deposit is non-refundable. If you need to change the date of your wedding you will be required to pay a £50 admin fee. All I ask is that you let me know as soon as possible so that we can try and find you an alternative date.

 

My partner and I both want preparation shots but we are at different venues, do you have a second photographer who can capture both of these?

The best way to capture both wedding preparations is to use my second photographer please ask me about this

 

Do you cover Civil Partnership/ Same-Sex Marriages?

Yes, love is love, I will cover all Weddings, Ceremonies and Blessings.

 

Why haven’t you won any awards Yet?

I don’t agree with some of the award boards, I believe you should not have to pay to win an award.

 

Do you offer a payment plan for the final balance?

Of course, I understand how expensive weddings are so I work with my client’s needs to organise a payment plan to suit you.

 

We have met with a couple of photographers already but have come across your website and would like to discuss things with you before we make a decision. Will you charge us a fee for the meeting if we decide to go with someone else?

Absolutely not. I always advise all of my clients to meet with their photographers of choice to ensure everything has been discussed. Miscommunication can easily happen if communication is only via email so it is always best to meet each other. Your wedding day is super important to me I want you to get your dream wedding photographer whether it is me or someone else.

 

Do you have a recommended supplier page?

Yes I do, as I have worked in the wedding industry for a while now, I have networked with many other wedding suppliers,  and these are the best of the best and who I recommend
