Can we meet you before deciding to book?
Of course, it would be fun to meet and I think that it is very important that you like and get on with your photographer. I am more than happy to meet up for a chat with no pressure of booking, so that you can see if I might be the photographer for you. If you live away from the area and a meeting is difficult we can always chat on the phone, via Skype or WhatsApp if you prefer.
How far ahead can we book you?
As far as you like as it pays to reserve your date once you know it. I am currently booking weddings up to three years in advance. Prices quoted for weddings booked in advance are guaranteed not to change. As well as booking in advance you also have the option to pay in advance with a 10% discount.
Can you tell us some of the venues you have worked at?
Yes indeed. Horn of Plenty Tavistock, Fox and Hounds Hotel Chulmleigh, Exeter Golf and Country Club, Escot House, Lord Haldon Hotel Dunchideock, Deer Park Country House Hotel Honiton, Double Locks Inn Exeter, Padbrook Park Hotel Cullompton, Woodbury Park Golf Club, Two Bridges Hotel Dartmoor, Great Barn Higher Ashton, Haldon Belverdere, Holne Park House Ashburton, Devon Hotel Exeter, Old Pavilion Honiton, Dartington Hall Totnes, Torre Abbey Torquay, Hestacombe Gardens Taunton, Guidhall Exeter, Larkbeare House Exeter, Old Forde House Newton Abbot.
Our wedding might be outside of your immediate area, can we still book you?
Yes, I am always happy to work anywhere in Devon, Somerset and Dorset. Some of the towns and surrounding areas that I cover include Bampton, Barnstaple, Beaminster, Bridport, Bridgwater, Chard, Crediton, Crewkerne, Cullompton, Exeter, Exmouth, Honiton, Ilminster, Langport, Lyme Regis, Newton Abbot, Okehampton, Seaton, Sidmouth, Taunton, Tavistock, Teignmouth, Tiverton, Torrington, Torquay, and Wellington.
Why are your prices so reasonable?
Weddings are expensive enough and I see no reason to charge more than I have to for my services. My pictures and client reviews speak for themselves. You save money and I expand my client base. A win-win situation for everyone.
How would you describe your style?
I am a natural light photographer and I want my images to capture the laughter and emotion of the day. I focus not just on the couple but also on your guests who pay such a big part in your day. I will capture the bits you were looking for and the bits you didn't see. Looking at your wedding images for the first time, should be a fun and great surprise.
What happens if I am nervous about being photographed?
Most couples say that they feel worried about being photographed but try not to worry about this. I offer very gentle direction, a great sense of humour and will never put you into awkward poses. Just knowing that your photographer has done this many times before means you can trust that I know how to get the best from you on the day. How you are looking and feeling on your wedding day is what I aim to show in your photographs.
We like your informal style but will you take formal group shots for us?
Yes of course. I will happily take any formal shots you need for your day. I always ask for a list of these shots before the day and will be happy to provide a suggested list for you to use as a starting point.
Can our guests take pictures too?
Yes of course, guests taking their own pictures is a very important part of the day. I actively encourage them to take as many pictures as possible! The guests can take photographs, sneaky selfies, you name it! I don't have any rules for what guests can and can't do.
Do you require a deposit?
Your booking should be accompanied by a 10% deposit to secure your date. Unfortunately I am unable to reserve a date until a deposit has been received.
When do we pay you?
Full payment can be made at any time after you make your booking. If you are local you can pay when you see the photographs or any time before if you choose. If you live away from the area your photographs will be sent to you by Royal Mail Special Delivery and payment will be required before the day. You have the option to pay in advance with a 10% discount. All payments can be made securely online.
Do you have any hidden charges for anything?
There are no hidden charges, ever.
How do we get our pictures?
Images are supplied copyright free on a memory stick allowing you to use the images as you want.
How long before we get our images?
Your images will normally be ready within 7/10 days after your wedding day.
Do we need to feed you on the day?
You can and I am always super grateful but I certainly do not expect to be fed so I leave that with you.
How long do you stay on the day?
It depends on the length of your booking but I always agree a start time with you and never leave until I have checked in with you to make sure there is nothing else you need.
Do you ever photograph more than one wedding a day?
No, my sole focus is always you and your day.
Do you have insurance?
I have public liability, personal indemnity and insurance for all my equipment.
Do we have to choose from one of your set packages or can we create something just for us?
No, I can cover as much or as little of your day as you like! Let me know exactly what you are after and we will work together to create something especially for you.
