q) are you right for us?
a) I’d like to think so, if you’re reading this.. my couples are generally very relaxed, happy to listen to advice on timings (I do this, a lot), and are looking for both candid and posed photos. they’ve planned their day their way, with their guests being their chosen family.
q) which areas do you cover?
a) Bradford, Skipton, Leeds, Harrogate & all the little nooks & crannies in between.
q) do we have to book you for a full day?
a) no. I realise it’s not for everyone to have me there all day. I offer part day coverage all year. The blogs below are from part days, between 2-6 hours.
q) how do you work on the day?
a) I flit between ninja style shooting, behind the scenes, and popping up to take a more ‘formal’ photo. I’m also a dab hand at keeping children entertained, and come prepared with my wedding emergency kit - all the handy things you may need on the day.
q) can we see a full gallery?
a) at the moment, I don’t have permission from a couple to share with you, for various reasons. The blogs below are from full day bookings (prep-dance).
q) do we meet before booking?
a) as with everything else relating to your big day, we can do, or we can speak on the phone, swap emails too.
I have a display of wedding photos at my studio, as well as a few albums.
The postcode is BD21 5LD.
q) we really don’t like having our photos taken, how can you help relax us?
a) by getting to know about you both - your lives together, your shared and separate interests, what you love, what you don’t. there are some silly games too, designed to get you both concentrating on each other, not me.
q) do you only offer digital packages? what else is available?
a) no. albums, wall art (canvas, framed prints, for example) are options, and you can also add a second photographer to your booking.
I recommend the latter for 8+ hour bookings, or weddings with more than 60 daytime guests.
q) how do we book?
a) Typically, I’d take a booking fee of 20% of your package cost, but you may not know exactly what you want when you book - just that you want me for your date!
In that case, I’ll take a fixed amount, and you can set your package within 3 months (wedding in same year as booking) or 6 months (wedding the following year).
q) are you insured?
a) yes. most venues ask to see my certificate ahead of the wedding, and you can see it too. just ask.
q) what happens afterwards?
a) I’ll safely back your photos up to multiple drives, and the cloud, and within a week I’ll send you some previews to share with loved ones. Your full gallery will be edited in 4-8 weeks, and you’ll receive your gallery via email. If you booked a digital package, you can download immediately.
