What information do you need from us at the point of our initial enquiry?
Upon your initial wedding photography enquiry it is massively helpful to me if you can provide your wedding date and venue(s). This will allow me to check my availability and provide you with examples of my work at your chosen venue(s) if I have worked there before.
How far in advance should we contact you?
Many couples vary on when they start planning for their wedding, but I always say the earlier you can secure the contracts with your preferred suppliers, the better.
Are you insured?
Absolutely! Please click on the following links for copies of my insurance certificates.
Do you have a portfolio of your work we can look at?
Yes I do; you can review many examples of my work here on my website by visiting my portfolio pages or alternatively, if you would like to meet in person I will be more than happy to bring hard copy prints and photo books for you to look at.
Can we give you a list of specific shots we would like taken?
This would be great and I would certainly welcome this. I do however, provide all my Brides and Grooms with a standard "shot list" to help them think about the kind of images they may want taken.
How do we book you?
If we have corresponded and met and you have decided that I am the right fit for your photography requirements, I will, first and foremost, be massively excited and over the moon that you have chosen me to share this magical journey with you, and then I will provide you with the following documents:-
a booking form - which is very straight forward and simple,
a copy of my Terms and Conditions - all fairly standard stuff,
and, an invoice for the package deposit - this is for 25% of the total
package price and is non-refundable - this secures your date in my
diary and I will not entertain any other enquiries for this date.
Will you be our photographer on the day?
Do you expect payment in full or do you offer payment plans?
Regardless of the size of your wedding photography package and price, following receipt
of the deposit you can spread the payments for the remaining balance out as best suits your circumstances over the course of the months leading up to your wedding day. However, any outstanding balance is due in full 14 days prior to your wedding date.
Do you charge for an engagement photo shoot?
A complimentary Engagement Shoot is included in the AMP Signature Wedding Package, and a tailor-made engagement shoot can be booked for all other wedding packages.
Do you take bookings for same-sex couples?
I would be delighted to take wedding bookings for same-sex couples!
How long will delivery of our images take?
I quote 4-6 weeks for delivery of my digital wedding images, this timeline may be a little longer if you have requested a photo-book or album or other photography products.
We don't really like our photographs taken and are nervous about our wedding photos! How will you help us get the best possible images on our wedding day?
Firstly, please do not worry! You are not alone! I will make every effort to get to know you and your fiancé in the months leading up to your wedding; the time and investment we make collectively will ensure that come your wedding day, you are both totally comfortable and relaxed with me and being photographed by me - this will give you beautifully natural photographs. I will gently guide you to obtaining the stunning images every bride and groom wants. I promise you there will be no forced, un-natural poses and I will not ask you to do anything that is out of your character or uncomfortable.
