Frequently Asked Questions
You are based in Cheshire, do you travel elsewhere?
Yes, I am based in the quaint town of Knutsford. I can and will travel anywhere to photograph your wedding. I regularly travel across the country and to Europe to cover weddings.
How would you describe your photography style?
My style is a mixture of fashion-portraiture and reportage ( I have spent many years shooting for high end magazines in celebrity portraiture and fashion,so I have the skills and lighting techniques to make you stunning on your day) and a background in reportage means special moments are not missed and result in the 'story' of your day.
I understand that most weddings will require a selection of group shots, and this is factored into my shooting schedules, it is your choice on the number needed ,I recommend around five or six formal group shots so to allow more time for me to concentrate on the documentary wedding photography which captures more of the essence of your day, obviously if you feel you need more group shots, then we can do this.
Essentially I will create stunning portraits of you, lovely photos of you both together and I will capture the true story of your day through my photojournalistic style of photography.
What preparations do you make before our wedding?
When booking with me ,I will send you a questionnaire to complete (or we can meet together at my studio); The questionnaire covers the details of timings , your requested formal images, names of wedding party, ushers etc, contact telephone numbers etc. I would ask to have all this information no later than a month before the wedding. With regards to organisation, I will visit your venues before the wedding and source possible locations for photography on the day. I shoot with two the very best professional Nikon cameras on the day with the best available lenses and lighting kits, and have backup equipment in the boot at all times.
Do you photograph in colour or black & white and do you edit all the images?
I shoot both colour and black and white, depending on which will work best for the scene. I personally retouch every image and this involves colour and density correction, cropping and any necessary retouching techniques I feel will enhance the photo such as spot removal or removing shadows under eyes etc.
Do you take group shots?
I do, and am happy to do large group shots when required and family group shots which have been discussed prior to the wedding.
Just call or email me at anytime and I will check availability. You are more than welcome to come to my studio to discuss your wedding further over a coffee or I can arrange a home visit if you prefer.
I will require a completed and signed contract and a non-refundable booking fee to secure my services for your wedding date. The retainer fee can be paid by bank transfer or cheque. I am sorry but I can not hold dates without the form and payment, and I would request that he remainder of the balance to be paid no later than 28 days before the wedding date.
There are photographers who charge £500 and give us a DVD with hundreds of images – why don’t you?
Throughout my entire working life photography has been my profession and I care about the photos I produce, you can be assured that by booking me, you will be in safe hands.
I have many years of experience and hundreds of happy clients.
Generally speaking, people offering these £500 packages do this at weekends to top up another salary.
Typically a wedding involves marketing, consultations, visits to venues, the wedding photography,then the editing of hundreds of photos, retouching, album design and delivery, I believe in this professional approach as I want every client to be over the moon with the photos.
All the photos will be taken by me in my unique style and with the comfort of knowing I have photographed many top celebrities and fashion models for many important magazines, which in turn means this professional approach is the same that I will apply to your wedding, all the editing and post processing will be done by me, not one image will make it into your album unless I am 100 percent happy with it. Your album will be filled with amazing photos that tell the story of your day, and only the very best materials are used in the handmade album delivered to you, and this will be something you will want to look at time and time again.
I am chosen as a wedding photographer for the complete package, for beautiful fashion like portraits, a storybook representation of a wedding day and a quality product that will become a treasured family heirloom.
Of course you can get your wedding photographed for £500, but your photos will be the lasting memory of your day long after the flowers and cake have gone.
The fees I charge are such that you are guaranteed a professional photographer who you can rely on, stunning images by a photographer trusted by some of the biggest magazines in the world with rave reviews from previous brides, a photographer who will supply a superb album that will last generations, in a word you will be investing in - quality.
What happens with regards to photography after the wedding ?
I consider the quality of your photos of the paramount importance, and it may take me two weeks to edit your photos, I take my time and give equal attention to each and every photo that will go into your album, when I am happy they will be put onto a DVD slideshow for you to view in the comfort of your home, from this you can select the photos you want for your album, I will also create an password protected online gallery so that friends and family can view the photos.
The albums are handmade in Italy and can take up to six weeks to produce, but they are well worth the wait, once shipped to me, your stunning album will be delivered to you.
Are you insured?
Yes I am fully insured. I have professional indemnity insurance and public liability insurance.
Any other questions, please drop me an email and I will be more than happy to answer them.
