Frequently asked questions
What are the most important things to consider when choosing a wedding photographer?
1 - Make sure they are professional. This is my full time job and I love what I do. I have been a wedding photographer for over 20 years. It has taken me a lot of time, training and commitment to get to the level I'm at. 2 - Make sure you like them. Your photographer is going to be with you and your guests all day so it's important that you are comfortable they are going to get along well with your guests. 3 - Price. Make sure you know exactly what you are getting for your money. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. We are very open and honest about everything, especially money and we are very good value.
How far are you willing to travel?
All over the world. We had a wonderful time photographing and filming a wedding in Mexico last year, but we also enjoy being close to home and are lucky enough to have a few great venues within 1o miles of our studio.
Do you charge travel costs?
If we can get there and back in a day, then no, we won't charge for travel. If your venue is in the UK but more than 100 miles from our studio in Northamptonshire then we will need to stay overnight and will ask you to cover that cost. Don't worry though, we don't need 5 stars and are happy for you to book our room (you may get a wedding discount) or to book it ourselves and add it to your invoice. We like to keep things easy so we'll discuss this in more detail with you. If you are getting married overseas then we ask you to cover our travel and 3 nights accommodation. From experience it is often best that we go for at least a week and then we cover the cost of the extra nights. When travelling overseas staying 3 nights usually cost more than staying 7, so it'll keep your costs down and allow us to have a break.
What packages do you offer?
We offer 3 photography collections, 3 filming options and 1 collection that includes photography, film and the most stunning album that comes in a box with a screen in the lid that shows your wedding highlights film.
What do your prices start at?
Our prices start at £1450, but don't forget we pride ourselves on being very open and honest, therefore our prices are very inclusive. You will always get a pre wedding shoot, all day wedding photography from getting ready through to first dance, an online gallery for your friends & family, an album and a USB with all your wedding photographs.
How long will it take to get my wedding photographs after the wedding?
It usually depends on the time of year and how busy we are, but we never make you wait more than 2 weeks.
How many photographs will I receive?
The average is around 500-600. This is very much dependant on the weather, the time of year, your willingness to be photographed and the venue.
Do you offer a discount for midweek weddings or shorter sessions?
During these times of Covid-19 government restrictions, yes. We are happy to discuss prices individually because couples are only allowed a ceremony, but no reception or party so the day will be considerably shorter. Usually, no. The time, work and expertise that it takes to photograph a wedding are the same for us regardless of the day and length of time.
Do you work alone or with a second photographer?
I work with Katie. She will be with me either as the videographer or as an assistant.
