Do you use flash?
Only when I need to. I use flash to improve quality of light rather than quantity, but I am mostly a natural light photographer.
Do you take formal and group photographs?
Yes… at every wedding… On my booking form I will ask you how many formal family group shots you would like taken so that I can make sure I take the time to get these photographs for you. I appreciate that the older generation still like traditional photographs for their mantelpiece. I suggest up to six for the documentary coverage to prevail
How long will these take?
I try to get them all done in 20 minutes right after the ceremony before anyone escapes to the bar.
When will you take the portraits of just the two of us?
I will normally ask you at some point during the day when you are ready and this will also only take 20 minutes. I like to wait until the light is right or when you are both relaxed and ready to have your pictures taken. My aim is to make it relaxed and fun and not too staged, but still try to get something creative.
Do you have insurance?
Being a professional wedding photographer, I have full public liability insurance and insurance for all my equipment. Being fully insured and paying taxes does cost a lot of money… if you see a good photographer that is cheap, it may be because they are cutting costs elsewhere… for full peace of mind… cutting corners is not what I do.
Can we decide after the wedding If we would like a book and get back to you?
You can, I do not have packages…. I offer books, prints and albums, all of which can be viewed when we meet, I am not a salesman…. If you would like to get an Album then that can be arranged, I will not try to sell you something you dont want.
