Will there be a second shooter for our wedding?

Yes, 2 epic photographers on all wedding packages, means that I can follow your moments throughout the day capturing all your interactions between you both and your guest, whilst my 2nd photographer will be focusing on your guest's actions and interactions. This could mean that you value the importance of the grooms first look as you walk down the aisle and have your reactions captured as well.

Maybe, it's your father wiping a tear from his eyes as he sees you both interacting with each other. 2 great photographers with different processes to follow mean nothing is missed.

How many images will I receive?

This will depend on how long of a service you need, For a wedding this could be anything from 300 to 600 edited images handed over on average.

Portraits we manage around 20 to 50 retouched images to review and enjoy.

What if there is a national emergency?

If the government force weddings to not be allowed to happen then I will be happy to discuss alternative dates with you. If you select a date that I can cover then I will not ask you to pay the booking fee again and I will not ask you to pay an admin fee unless a new contract needs to be signed.

Do you offer discounts for emergency services?

If you work for the NHS, Armed Forces, Fire Service, Police and even Teachers. Then I am happy to work with you on a special package. These can be additional options at a reduced price etc.

Are you a preferred supplier anywhere?

Yes, we are recommended by Eastwood Hall in Nottingham for several years now, We have also worked closely with venues such as Mansfield Manor. I do offer a reduced starting price for weddings at Eastwood Hall as well.

Do you shoot same-sex Weddings?

All I see is 2 people that love each other, I don't restrict who this is with. So yes I am happy to shoot same-sex marriages.

What If I want something different to your packages?

I prefer my couples to tailor their package to suit their own unique needs, this way they will value every part of their package. Please feel free to tell me what you are hoping for.

Do you offer a double wedding discount?

On occasions I have been asked if I do a due wedding discount, meaning if 2 sisters, for example, are getting married and both wish to book my services then I will offer both a discount if booked at the same time with similar prices packages.

This does not mean the wedding has to be on the same date or same venue but must be booked at the same time, or within 30 days of booking the first wedding.

Can you add things into photos?

Yes, I have been known for adding special things to wedding photos such as a dinosaur, Ghostbusters, Starwars and more.

I will need to know this in advance so I can process the appropriate research into images, copywriter licencing and so on.

Do you shoot alternative weddings?

Yes, 100%. Being alternative myself I love themed alternative weddings. Nothing is more pleasing to me than working with a couple on something we all are into.

This could be Marvel, Starwars, Gothic, Space, Supernatural and other interesting themes.

I'd love to hear your ideas and see if we are a good fit for each other.

How long do I have to order wall-art prints?

All my galleries online will be active for 6 to 8 weeks from the date of your image reveal session.

So on your image reveal session you may get better prices for purchases on the day as purchases after this period can be impacted by no discounted offers or possible price rising.

Further discounts may be possible on orders secured before the shoot or for a number of orders made.

Do you offer Family Photography Sessions?

I am happy to discuss any family photography requirements on a fully tailored service. From on a location shoot, home studio setups at your home. how long you need, how many people and what you want printed etc.

Typically I would look at a shoot fee of £100 plus wall art orders.

What do you do to protect my images from damage or getting lost?

I offer a unique process for protecting your memories, some photographers will photograph a wedding then go home to backup the images. But what if something should happen to the memory cards on the way home?

I have the ability to back up your memories throughout the day with a professional portable hard drive kept on me at all times, this means I can plug mine and my 2nd photographer's memory cards into the hard drive during the wedding breakfast and at the end of the night when we are not shooting to back up your memories whilst we are still at your venue.

This will now mean we have your memories on several memory cards and a portable hard drive, giving your loads of protection if something goes wrong with a memory card or one gets damaged somehow, then I will have multiple sources to pull your images once I get home.

I will then back those images up again once home with online storage space and on a hard drive kept at the office.

As you can properly tell by now, nothing is more important to me than the two of you, your memories MUST live on. This is my promise to you both, I will look after you and your guest's memories and you will just enjoy the day with no stress about your memories being lost.

This is your opportunity to let me know your thoughts upfront.
