what is your payment schedule ?
To reserve your date I ask for a deposit of 25% of the total agreed fee, due upon return of my wedding booking form. The remaining balance would be due four weeks prior to your wedding date. If you'd prefer a different arrangement then that can be discussed.
your social media presence ?
I limit my presence on social media through personal choice. I don't use Facebook at all so you won't find me there, this I've no doubt is to some degree detrimental to my business but the whole thing is just not my cup of coffee. I do use Instagram regularly as I prefer that platform and it allows me to play more with pictures.
I prefer spending my time taking photos more than working social media.
what happens if it rains ?
Well, Britain is where we live therefore rainy is what we do. I always carry a couple of umbrellas that can be made good use of but in my experience, rain on a wedding day as only ever added to the fun and drama of the occasion. A bit of rain is not to be feared. I won't stop me from working and it won't keep you from becoming newlyweds.
what happens if you're ill ?
In the years I've been shooting weddings I can gladly say that I have never missed a wedding for any reason.
I take the responsibility of photographing a wedding absolutely seriously and equally so my preparations in the lead up to your wedding. It would take a very grave reason to keep me from attending, however, I have a network of photographers and always have a back up plan in place which includes a replacement photographer. Rest assured though that I'll do everything in my power to ensure I'm with you as planned.
do we need to feed you ?
I don't make it a contracted requirement but it would be wonderfully kind of you if you could. A hot meal is very welcome during the course of a hard days work. I don't expect to sit with your party, a quiet corner away from the action is best and I'm not fussy but I am veggie.
when and how will we receive our photos ?
It is always my aim to deliver your photos to you within 6 weeks of the date of your wedding, however, at busier times of the year this may be realistically 8 weeks.
Your photos, once hand edited by me, will initially be uploaded to a private, password controlled online gallery. This allows you the chance to see your beautiful new photos for the first time and also to share them with your friends and family. All images are then transferred to your bespoke USB package, this is an elegantly crafted hand finished wooden case, personalised with your names and the date of your wedding. This will hold your 10 free prints and your USB which will contain all of your edited wedding photos and your engagement session photos if you had one.
