How do we book you?

If you'd like to book simply visit the "Book Me" page of my website. I require a booking fee to secure your date. Please note no date is held without a deposit. I then suggest a Skype consultation to go through your requirements in detail.

How soon can we see our wedding photos?

All your digital images are re-touched in detail and film is sent for processing this does take a little time-but it's so worth the wait. Usually you can expect to see your images within 6 weeks of your wedding day.

Are you insured?

Yes, I am fully insured with both public liability and indemnity insurance. I also have full sets of spare equipment with me at all weddings.

I'm with you for 8 hours of your wedding day, extra hours coverage can be added. I ask my couples to spend 30 minutes with me for photographs, twice during the day. Usually this is during the drinks reception and then again after dinner.
I do not do lots of group shots and recommend around 5/6 as a maximum.

How long are you with us on our wedding day?

Why have an engagement shoot ??and?where?

I recommend an engagement shoot around 3 months before your wedding. The shoots take place on a weekday, so please be sure to plan for this in your diary. I can guide you on styling and location during our consultations. I encourage my couples to treat these shoots as a chance to celebrate their engagement and to enjoy dressing up and looking fabulous. I always love to travel, so European destinations are perfectly possible.

Do you travel?

Yes, I am delighted to cover weddings both across the whole of the UK and internationally. I travel anywhere to photograph beauty.

What is your style?

It's not your typical wedding photography, my style is heavily influenced by fashion photography, stylish and elegant. My aim is always to make you look like cover stars-totally beautiful.
I approach my photography as fine art images, with a consistent look, gorgeous soft colours and cohesion. My images are infused with light, rich with textures and romance.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I have a base in Yorkshire and another in Hampshire and am delighted to cover weddings both across the whole of the UK and internationally. In some instances travel and accomodation expenses would be applicable. This is discussed at our consultation.
For destination weddings I charge for flights, accommodation, meals and transfers in addition to my booking fee. I usually recommend to my couples that I arrive a couple of days ahead of the destination wedding to allow me to visit the venue. I am also happy to photograph the rehearsal dinner and the day after the wedding, should flight timings allow. Contact me directly for a bespoke quote.
Should you wish to have your engagement shoot abroad, again my travel, meals and accommodation are chargeable.

How long are you with us on our wedding day?

I'm with you all day, typically from preparations in the morning though to your first dance. If you have fireworks or extra evening entertainment I am of course happy to stay to cover that for you. I'm yours for the duration. I ask my couples to spend 20 minutes with me for photographs, twice during the day. Usually this is during the drinks reception and then again after dinner.
I do not do lots of group shots and recommend around 5/6 as a maximum. They take up a huge amount of time, so to avoid you being stuck having endless group shots taken I recommend just a handful.
I advise my couples that a minimum of an hour and a half is advisable between the ceremony and being called in for dinner, to allow for plenty of mingling time and some photography.



Are you insured?
Yes, I am fully insured with both public liability and indemnity insurance. I also have a full sets of spare equipment with me at all weddings.



How soon can we see our wedding photographs

All your images are re-touched in detail and this does take a little time-but it's so worth the wait. Usually you can expect to see your images within 4 weeks of your wedding day. Many of my couples like to book that date in the diary before they go on honeymoon so they have something wonderful to look forward to.Once you've had a private viewing of your images, they are immediately available on a onine wedding gallery for you to share with family and friends.
If you decide to have an album, I do all the design and layout work and then send over a preview design for you to approve. Albums typically take 6 weeks to complete from the sign off.


How do we book you?

If you'd like to book simply visit the "Book Me" page of my website and drop me a line. I require a booking fee to secure your date. Please note no date is held without a deposit. I then invite you to visit to my client lounge to go through your requirements in detail.
I'm taking select weddings for 2013 nd encourage you to book early for 2014 weddings.

It's not typical wedding photography, my style is heavily influenced by editorial and magazine photography, romantic and stylish. I bring a fine art approach to weddings, styling every shot. I shoot on film and digital. formats.
