Yes I cover the UK and abroad
Typical prices range from £750 to around £1250, depending on how long you require me, what you want and where
  • I bring three sets of pro camera equipment to every wedding
  • I edit every image personally. I do not sub contract any editing so what you get is what I want you to see.
  • I will provide you with an online private galley for you and your guests to view all your images
  • I offer continuing consultation throughout and after your wedding planning
  • All my packages include the edited images at no extra cost
  • Free Smartphone App for all your images
  • Free signature board
    • I may charge you a small fee for travel depending on your venue
    • If you want an extra photographer then I charge a fee depending on how much coverage you require
    • I can provide a photofilm of your day with audio from your ceremony and speeches if you wish
    • I offer some amazing albums
I can offer both for you, this is becoming more and more popular for weddings, but may depend on the distance between venues. Generally my efforts are concentrated on the bride!
I provide a documentary style of wedding photography. I will not interfere in your day at all. I may offer some direction for group and couple shots. I won’t ask you to do anything twice and I never use the word ‘cheese’
No absolutely not. You may have a family friend who is more than capable of taking excellent pictures throughout the day and may well be free of charge. However I do speak with brides who have done this and been a little disappointed with their pictures. Remember that photographing all day and in difficult lighting conditions is not easy, particularly with consumer equipment. In addition consider if that family member will really enjoy the day as they should! Most of my time is spent post processing the images from the day after the event and that often gets forgotten when you get handed a disc of unedited images after your wedding day
Yes I carry professional insurance and professional indemnity
I require a 10% deposit at the time of booking and full payment one month prior to the wedding day. This is in line with most professional photographers. You can pay by instalments, cash, cheque or bank transfer
No I set the whole day aside for you, whether you require us for 4 hours or 16 hours.I do not book any other weddings once you have booked the day with me
Absolutely. However I will tell you if I do not think I am the man for the job. If your day is about posing for photographs and lots of group shots then I would suggest that you seek another photographer
Ideally the whole day is unposed and natural. I aim to capture images that reflect your day. However I will set some time aside for 2 or 3 specific group shots if this is important to you
Yes I have a list of people I trust and would happily recommend to you, just ask me
You would lose your deposit but you would not be obliged to pay anything else. If you cancel within a period of time within your contract after you have paid the outstanding balance then you would not be entitled to any refund
Yes I do offer film and video at weddings. However I use both in the documentary style. My cameras shoot 4k video but often you will not know if I’m filming or capturing images. You need to add the extra fusion package to your wedding for me to capture some film, time lapse and audio from speeches and ceremony.
