How long will you be there?
As long as I need to be .... naf answer right. But its true, if you're bridal prep needs me to be there at 7 in the morning then that's when I'll be there. I'll then be around for the rest of the day. I usually leave around an hour after the first dance, but if there's something happening later in the evening that you want me to capture or if the dance floor is going nuts then I'll stay.
Will I get formal group shots?
Yup. Group shots can be the most painful part of the day, but they don't have to be. Before the wedding I'll ask you to fill out a form with all of the timings and addresses for the day. It will also contain a section for you to fill out the group shots that you'd like, i recommend limiting this to 5-10, this way we can get through them super quick and everyone will be happy. Of course I'm not going to make you stop at 10 but from experience this strikes the right balance between getting everyone in and not having people hanging around when they could be having fun.
Will you take pictures of all of my guests?
I will absolutely try and get pictures of everyone at the wedding, but I can't guarantee it. If someone is a key part of your day then of course they'll be captured, but if Great Auntie Ethel comes along, stands at the back of the ceremony and then ducks off after clearing up the canapes there might not be a photo of her. If you really want a photo of Great Auntie Ethel or anyone else then let me know and grab me on the day when you're talking to her.
When will I get my pictures?
I take care individually editing all of the photos that I deliver to you, this takes time so you should usually expect to get the full set of photos 4-6 weeks after your wedding day.
How do I secure my wedding date?
I'll send you a booking form to complete and once you've sent me a deposit your dates secured and we're good to go.
Do you travel abroad to photograph weddings?
I absolutely do ... I love to travel ... I've been all around the world from Easter Island to Brazil, New Zealand, Malaysia and all over Europe. If you take me somewhere I haven't been then you get a bonus prize.
What equipment do you use?
I shoot with Nikon cameras and a mixture of Nikon and Sigma prime lenses, I've got a couple of Fujifilm cameras for personal projects because they're smaller and they look beautiful! .... and I might switch to them soon (but I'm probably boring you now!).
Are you a weirdo?
No ones ever to told me to my face that I am, which hopefully means that I'm not.
Do we get to meet before the day?
I'm based just north of Milton Keynes but I'm in usually in London 2-3 days a week, so if you can get somewhere close to me or London lets meet up. If not we can do a phone or skype call.
