DO I NEED A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
IT TOTALLY DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU WANT TO GET OUT OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY AND THE SIZE OF YOUR WEDDING. TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS MEANS THE WHOLE DAY IS CAPTURED FROM TWO DIFFERENT ANGLES AS FOUR EYES SEE MORE THAN TWO. IF YOU HAVE A LARGE WEDDING PARTY AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU TO HAVE THAT SIDE OF YOUR WEDDING EQUALLY CAPTURED AS WELL AS YOU TWO, WHO WILL ALWAYS BE MY PRIORITY, AND ALL THE BIG AND SMALL DETAILS ON THE DAY, THEN IT IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER. THIS ALSO MEANS THAT TWO PREPARATION LOCATIONS CAN BE CAPTURED IN THE MORNING, WHICH MAKE GREAT MEMORIES AND ARE REALLY FUN TO LOOK BACK ON WITH EACH OTHER AFTERWARDS. “WHAT? YOU DID AX THROWING WHILST DRINKING RUM BEFORE THE CEREMONY?” TRUE STORY 😉
CAN WE MEET YOU BEFORE WE BOOK?
ABSOLUTELY. ALL MY QUOTES, NO MATTER HOW SHORT THE COVERAGE IS, COME WITH A FREE CONSULTATION IN YORK. I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER, AND ALSO HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO FEEL WE ARE A GOOD MATCH, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IF YOU WANT TO GO FOR A COFFEE OR DRINK AND GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER A LITTLE WHILST TALKING ABOUT YOUR EXCITING DAY AHEAD.
HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE WE GET OUR PICTURES?
THE AVERAGE TURN-AROUND TIME IS 6-8 WEEKS WHICH CAN VARY IN PEAK SEASON. BUT DON’T WORRY, I’LL ALWAYS SEND YOU A FEW HIGHLIGHTS WITHIN THE FIRST WEEK SO YOU CAN GET EXCITED AND SHARE THEM WITH YOUR LOVED ONES.
IS A DEPOSIT REQUIRED?
YES, I ASK FOR A £500 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT AT THE TIME OF BOOKING TO MARK THAT DAY IN MY DIARY AS YOURS! THE REST IS NOT DUE UNTIL FOUR WEEKS BEFORE YOUR WEDDING.
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH ON THE DAY?
MY STYLE IS NATURAL AND HONEST. PEOPLE OFTEN ASK ME WHERE WE KNOW EACH OTHER FROM AS I COME ACROSS LIKE A FRIEND ON THE WEDDING DAY. THIS IS A HUGE COMPLIMENT TO ME AND EXACTLY WHAT I WANT TO ACHIEVE. I BLEND IN AND CELEBRATE YOUR LOVE WITH YOU. I WANT TO PORTRAY YOU THE WAY YOU ARE. NO AWKWARD POSING NECESSARY. I WILL CAPTURE YOU BEST WHEN YOU FEEL RELAXED, HAPPY AND TOTALLY YOURSELVES.
WE ARE REALLY CAMERA SHY, WILL THAT BE A PROBLEM?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND BECAUSE I AM THE SAME. ON THE DAY YOU WILL PROBABLY BE TOO BUSY HAVING THE BEST TIME EVER THAT YOU WILL HARDLY NOTICE ME. WHEN IT COMES TO COUPLE PICTURES, ALL WE DO IS GO FOR A STROLL AND I CAN DIRECT YOU A LITTLE IF IT DOESN’T FEEL NATURALLY AT FIRST. IT IS A GREAT WAY TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF TIME OUT FOR YOU ON THE DAY. JUST THE TWO OF YOU WITH MY “NOT SCARY” CAMERA, OF COURSE.
WHAT IS A PRE-WEDDING OR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT FOR?
IN AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT WE’LL HAVE THE CHANCE TO SPEND A COUPLE OF HOURS TOGETHER IN A RELAXED SETTING. WE CAN GO FOR A WOODLAND STROLL OR HAVE A COFFEE AND CHAT WHILST I TAKE PICTURES OF YOU TWO. IT IS A REALLY RELAXED TIME WHERE YOU CAN GET USED TO ME AND THE CAMERA AND IN THE END YOU WILL HAVE SOME BEAUTIFUL PICTURES. A LOT OF MY COUPLES USE THESE FOR THEIR INVITES TOO.
DO YOU DO WEDDING ALBUMS?
I THINK THERE IS NOTHING NICER THEN SITTING ON THE SOFA TOGETHER ON YOUR ANNIVERSARY OR WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND LOOKING THROUGH AN ALBUM RATHER THAN AT A COMPUTER SCREEN. I MAKE AN ALBUM EVERY YEAR OF OUR LIFE AS A FAMILY. I LOVE THESE SO MUCH. ALONG WITH 30 ALBUMS OF MY CHILDHOOD, THESE ARE SOME OF THE MOST VALUABLE THINGS I OWN. YOU ARE CREATING SOMETHING FOR THE FUTURE TO KEEP FOR EVER AND PASS ON. ALL ALBUMS ARE HAND-MADE, FINE ART ALBUMS PRODUCED IN ONE OF THE UK’S FINEST PHOTO LABS TO ACHIEVE THE BEST QUALITY POSSIBLE. I DESIGN THEM FOR YOU AND YOU CAN CHECK OVER TO SEE IF EVERYTHING IS OK BEFORE WE ORDER. NOTHING ELSE NEEDED, JUST CHOOSE YOUR HIGHLIGHTS AND I’LL DO THE REST.
DO YOU DO GROUP PHOTOS?
SURE! I KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THEY ARE TO A LOT OF PEOPLE AND THEY ARE A GREAT WAY OF MAKING SURE YOU DEFINITELY HAVE A PICTURE WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT GUESTS. HOWEVER, I ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE HOW TIRING THEY CAN BE… SO I TRY TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO KEEP THEM TO A MAXIMUM OF EIGHT, AND WILL OFTEN ASK A FAMILY FRIEND WITH A LOUD VOICE HELP ME ROUND UP PEOPLE.
