Frequently asked questions

-- Before booking --

How far in advance do I need to book my wedding photography?

Many brides book me as their wedding photographer over a year before their wedding but it all depends on the date required.

June to October are obviously the busiest months and the Saturdays tend to fill up first. I usually have a couple of bookings that are over two years away so it’s better to check that your date is available early.

If you do find that I am already booked on your wedding day, don’t panic. I’ve got a few fantastic photographer friends that I’d be happy to put you in touch with.

Are you insured?

Yes I have full Public Liabilities insurance and I’m a full member of the SWPP, The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.

When would you require balance of payment?

The balance would be due one week before the big day.

Do you take credit card?

Yes I do.

Please ask me for details and I’ll send you a link to the online booking form.

How do I book?

I have an online booking system. I can create a proposal and email you a link to the booking form.

Once you ‘accept’ the proposal you will be taken to the payments page. The various payment options are on there.

Can I have a list of references?

Yes of course.

I can supply you with a list of venues, florists, car hire companies, DJs, videographers and caterers that would be happy to supply a reference.

Do you have backup equipment?

Oh yes. I have backups of my backups.

I always have three camera bodies with me and half a dozen lenses, lots of memory cards, three flashes and about a bazillion batteries.

I come from an IT background and I’m fastidious about data backups too. Whilst the wedding guests are enjoying their food, I will be backing up the memory cards to my external storage.

Do you require a deposit in order to reserve a date?

Yes, to reserve a date, a deposit of £100 would be required.

I can however hold the date upon request. If you ask nicely.
