Frequently Asked Questions

I am so thrilled that you are considering me to capture your wedding!

It is likely that this is all a brand new experience for you, and you will have lots and lots of questions you would like to ask me! Below are some that I get frequently asked by my couples that you might find useful to know.

Do you charge extra for travel?

All of my packages are priced accurately for any wedding held within Cheshire, Manchester, Lancashire and even parts of Yorkshire / the Lake District. Outside of these areas, a small surcharge will be added to cover travel costs.

Do you require accommodation?

I like to be as close to the location of your wedding as possible to avoid any chance of delay. If your wedding is more than a1.5  hour journey away from me I would require local accommodation, for which a standard charge would be added to your package cost.

Do we need to feed you?

I have been incredibly lucky to be always offered a meal by my couples! It is always greatly appreciated to receive any fresh meal when you and your guests are sitting down to your wedding breakfast. I would never ask to sit with your guests, nor to be eating your lovely wedding breakfast! So please don’t feel you need to include me in your seating plan. A hot meal and a table away from your seating area would suit perfectly!

What happens if it rains on our wedding day?

For all England based weddings, the chance of rain is always there, especially in the colder months (my own wedding day was the wettest I have ever been to!) but fear not! This won’t stop me from creating beautiful photographs for you. Whether that’s finding a cosy spot indoors, or braving the elements with wellies and umbrellas!

How many photographs will we receive?

I am pretty snap happy! The approximate number of images you will receive can vary, based on many variables such as the length of time I am there on the wedding day, or if you’ve got lots of activities / guest entertainment etc. For ‘The Love Story’ package, I estimate you will receive on average; 500 images.

What equipment do you use?

I use the very best professional camera equipment available to me. My equipment includes, but it not restricted to the following; Canon 5D MIII with back up camera bodies always ready, and my favourite lenses are 24-70 2.8 L and especially my 35mm Art lens. Although I am mostly a natural light photographer, I also carry sufficient lighting equipment with me just incase.

How long will it be before we get our photographs?

You will be kept up to date and if you wish, you can receive ‘sneak peek’ a few days after your wedding day. But you will receive your final and completed gallery within 6-8 weeks from your wedding date.

What if you are ill on the day?

I am incredibly fortunate to have some wonderful colleagues in the wedding industry, who I would be able to trust to do an amazing job in my absence. I will do my up most to ensure that you have a great photographer to cover your day under this circumstance. However, this has never happened before and hopefully never will.

Are you insured?

Yes of course. All of my equipment is fully insured and I am covered by public liability and indemnity insurance.

You're definitely the photographer for us! We want to book you for our wedding date! What's next?

Hurray! That makes me so happy! The first step is a celebratory dance, because you’ve just ticked off a biggy on your wedding to-do list! You’ll be pleased to know that my booking process is nice and simple. I ask for a 25% deposit to be paid, along with my booking contract agreed. Then your wedding date is officially secured in my diary!
