Frequently Asked Questions:
some FAQs that I am asked. If your question isn’t covered, please contact me to ask.
Q: How much do you charge and what does that include?
A: My price package is straight forward. At the moment weddings start at £1200 for full day coverage and a USB of high res edited images. Additional extras such as an album or a second shooter can be added. An additional cost will be added for travel 50 miles outside of Nottingham. Please contact me here with more details of your wedding for an accurate quote.
Q: Where are you based?
A: I am based in Nottingham but often travel to London and further afield for weddings and photo shoots.
Q: What camera do you use?
A: I use a Canon 5D Mark iii, with a mark ii as a back up
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I have a natural and relaxed style to my photography, enjoying nothing better than to capture someone laughing, smiling and just having fun. I DON’T do a lot of posing, preferring to capture you as you are. Along with this, I would also say I have a quirky edge to my photography and enjoy vintage styles. If you want something a little bit different, and not so traditional, I could be your photographer.
Q: How many photos do we get??
A: I aim to deliver around 400 pictures to tell the story of your day. Sometimes it may be closer to 500, particularly if I am working with a second shooter. I take thousands of pictures on your wedding day, but rather than overwhelm you with every single shot, I spend a long time editing my shots down to the absolute best.
Q: Do you use a second shooter or is it just you?
A: I often work with a second professional photographer with a similar style to help me capture the day. It is entirely up to you as to whether you opt for this as an extra. I can chat through the benefits to help inform your decision on this. Or just take a look at this blog post that outlines some of the benefits. A second shooter is currently an additional £150.
Q: Why do you include a complementary engagement shoot?
A: I always offer an engagement shoot, usually lasting a couple of hours at a location of your choice. It gives you as a couple the opportunity to feel comfortable with me as a photographer, get to know me and my way of working and therefore feel more at ease on you big day. It also gives you some wonderful shots of just the two of you that can be used for save the date cards, thank you cards or in a guest book, or just for your own memories. I also really enjoy it! Take a look at some of my engagement shoots here.
Q: We are not really used to having our picture taken, and we don’t want to look awkward, do you pose us?
A: My style is super relaxed and natural, which means I don’t do a great deal of posing, preferring to just capture you as you are. My aim is to get you to feel as comfortable as possible in front of my camera, so I can capture this, and this is one of the reasons I do a pre wedding shoot. I might give a little bit of simple direction, like “look at each other” or “have a little cuddle” but generally we have a chat and the photos just come naturally. No need to worry, please see some of my testimonials from other couples who say how relaxed they felt, despite feeling apprehensive to begin with.
