Below you'll find some answers to the questions I'm asked the most. I hope you find the answers to any questions you have here, but if there's anything I haven't answered, please do get in touch and I'll be happy to help!
WHAT PACKAGES DO YOU OFFER?
I offer three packages for UK Weddings; Classic, Elegant and Sophisticated, for your beautiful day. You can see what is included in my Classic Package over on my Pricing Page. Here you can also request a copy of my Information & Pricing Guide, which gives you detailed information about exactly what is included in each Package, the extras you can add and what to expect when you book me.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
Absolutely! I love to travel and I love to photograph weddings, so what could be better than a destination wedding!? Destination Weddings and Elopements are beautiful affairs and often aren't met with the same excitement as Weddings at home, as they've been played down in the past as the option chosen by couples wanting to marry in secret or at a low cost. However, this really is not the case and when you book me for your Destination Wedding, you'll get the same excitement, attention and passion as any of my UK Wedding couples.
WHAT DESTINATION WEDDING PACKAGES DO YOU OFFER?
I offer the same three Wedding Packages for Destination Weddings, as well as two Extra Packages; The European and The World Traveller. These two extra packages allow for more coverage of your time in your gorgeous destination and you can read more about these over on my Destination Wedding Page, or by requesting a copy of my Destination Wedding Information & Pricing Guide through the button below.
CAN YOU TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS AT MULTIPLE LOCATIONS ON MY WEDDING DAY?
Of course! Travel up to 60 miles is included when you book any of my Wedding Packages. If you'll be exchanging vows at a different location to the reception, or getting ready at home before heading off to your venue, travel between the different locations will just be included in the total travel time. If you'd like me to photograph both of you getting ready in the morning, I can either split my time between the two of you, or if you can add a Second Photographer to any of my packages.
HOW DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?
For UK Weddings, travel up to 60 miles throughout your Wedding Day is included at no extra charge. Travel beyond 60 miles will be added to your invoice at the standard 45p per mile. For Weddings over 60 miles from me, I may also need to book a nearby hotel, the cost of which I will discuss with you and include in your invoice. For Destination Weddings, I will research flight and hotel prices and put together a total package cost for you.
WILL YOU EDIT MY PHOTOS?
This is an important question. I edit all of your photographs, to make them the absolute best they can be. This involves editing the photographs themselves and I may occasionally add creative elements, but I won't alter the features of the people within the photographs. I'm all about honest photography and believe self-confidence and body positivity are so important, so I won't retouch your photos if this means changing the way you look.
If you've got a temporary mark, such as a spot or a cut on your face, for example, I will happily remove these from your favourite photographs, as they aren't a part of you and your naturally beautiful self. However, a big part of the reason I chose to become a photographer, was to empower my clients and show you just how beautiful you really are. If you have any concerns about this, please do get in touch, because I would love to show you what everyone else sees when they look at you. I think we all see a distorted version of ourselves, not the way we truly look, but I will do my absolute best to help give you the confidence to feel your unashamed, incredible self, with photographs of you just the way you are, not the way I could photoshop you to be.
CAN I BOOK NOW & PAY LATER?
For all of my packages, I simply require a 30% deposit in order to secure your booking, then the rest can be paid in instalments, up until 4 weeks before the wedding.
HOW DO YOUR PAYMENT PLANS WORK?
I understand that expenses month to month can go up and down, particularly when planning a wedding, so I will work with you to create a payment plan that you're happy with. Have a big venue payment to make in April? No problem, we'll schedule your payment for May! Generally, depending on the package you choose and how soon your wedding is, my couples have payments scheduled every 3 to 6 months. If you would prefer to pay smaller amount more often, this is also possible.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS A PAYMENT?
I know it's easy to forget one payment when you've got so much else to think about, so will send you email reminders a week before your payment is due. When you book, we'll plan your payment schedule so it works for you, but if things change and you feel that for whatever reason you won't be able to make your next payment, simply get in touch and we can rearrange your payment schedule.
