All of the questions.
Where are you based?
I live in the heart of East Sussex, but I cover all of Sussex, Kent, London and the rest of the UK. I also travel abroad for destination weddings!
How much do you charge?
You can see a run down of my prices on my wedding photography info page. If you are planning something far from the traditional wedding and need a bespoke quote then just drop me an email, i'd be more than happy to chat through this with you. My standard package covers 10 hours and there is the option of adding on bits and bobs if you like.
How far will you travel to photograph a wedding?
ALL OVER THE WORLD! No, really, I will travel anywhere and everywhere. My packages include travel anywhere in England, there may be a small charge for travel expenses if accommodation is required. I am so excited to offer destination weddings, which would be my usual day rate plus travel expenses.
How do we book you?
Just fill in the little form on my contact page and we can get the ball rolling! I will have a couple of forms for you to fill out and we can have a chat via skype or even meet for a cheeky beer beforehand. I take a £350 booking fee which secures your date for you!
What happens if you get ill?
Touch wood I have never missed a wedding! However, I do network with a lot of awesome photographers throughout the UK so if I did need cover it wouldn't be a problem at all. One of the bonuses of booking a second photographer means you have instant back up too!
When do we need to pay the final balance?
The final balance is due the 1st of the month, the month before your wedding date. So if you were getting married on the 25th April then you would need to pay the final balance by 1st March. I also offer the option of paying in instalments, as long as the whole balance is done by the agreed date then thats absolutely grand with me.
Are you insured?
Yes! I have full equipment and public liability insurance.
What if it's raining on the day?
Fear not! I always bring a good selection of lighting equipment with me so if it really is miserable weather we can set up some shots indoors or just go and get wet! If the weather subsides at any point we can always run out for 5 minutes to grab some shots outdoors too. Rainy back lit shots are a photographers dream!
How long will it take for me to receive my pictures after the wedding day?
I aim to edit and send you your images within 4-6 weeks of your wedding date. If I finish them sooner then rest assured you will receive them sooner too! I also love to share some sneak peeks within 48 hours after your wedding day on Facebook, which I'd love for you to share with your friends and family!
Any other questions?
I am so aware of what a big decision it is when booking your wedding photographer. I want to make sure you feel happy and safe with your decision when booking me so please don't hesitate to get in touch, i'm always available at the end of an email or a quick phone call! No question too big or too small. I hope to hear from you soon!
