Wedding videography retainer fee £695 followed by £1650 prior to your wedding. If both services are required both retainers fees are required to secure your booking.
WE ARE INTERESTED IN BOTH PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY, DO YOU OFFER BOTH?
Firstly, yes I offer both photography & videography for your wedding day. With the specialised equipment that I am using I am able to capture photos and video, its totally unobtrusive. I do have a second camera operator with me when you want both services. Videography is full day coverage with a cinematic highlight film and main feature film on USB.

The date is only secured upon the signing of the booking form and receipt of the £695 non refundable retainer fees. The retainer fee is for my time & skill in photographing / filming your day only.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
Yes, I’ll travel anywhere in the world to document your wedding.

I endeavour to have your Wedding day photos ready to see in just under 6 weeks, at this time I will arrange a viewing appointment with you, during the viewing you have the option to purchase a picture book collection and your completed order will be ready in 6 weeks once you have submitted your image choices. Alternativly if you are unable to attend the viewing appointment you can receive a password protected web link to view your entire gallery of images upon receipt of full payment for your chosen picture book collection.
HOW MANY PHOTOS ARE IN OUR PICTURE BOOK?
My wedding photography style is photojournalistic and I capture your day so it has a narrative approach, for me the emotion of the day can only be presented well when you have 250 photos to remember your day.
WE WOULD LIKE THE PHOTOS ON A USB STICK?
I offer a complimentary USB stick of digital images of your chosen 250 photos these are inclusive with all GOLD and above picture book Collections stated on my price list. I do not offer a USB of digital images only package.
ARE YOU FULLY INSURED?
HOW DIFFERENT IS EVERY WEDDING?
Finding that magical moment, composition and style is what I love to do. Every single moment can be captured artistically. It’s people that make a wedding different and at every wedding its different people. Your family and friends make your wedding special.
DO YOU GET EMOTIONAL DURING A WEDDING?
I do, a wedding can be incredibly moving. I can smile or shed a tear – thats what happens at a wedding! Wonderfully unique events that deserve to be captured beautifully.
WE NOTICE THAT ALL YOUR IMAGES ON SOCIAL MEDIA ARE JUST COUPLES, DO YOU ALSO TAKE DETAIL PHOTOS AND FAMILY PICTURES?
I have always wanted my couples to book me for my connection and intimacy in my work, so this is what I share the most. I am with your for approx 12 hours so yes I do capture all the days events, details, candid’s, family images and everything else that happens at a wedding day as they are very important to me. There are many full wedding days on my blog that show the entire day perfectly.
YOUR PHOTOS ARE BEAUTIFUL, HOWEVER WE WERE WONDERING IF MOST OF THE PHOTOS WE WOULD RECEIVE BE DARKER AND MOODIER, OR WOULD THEY BE LIGHTER?
I love using natural light and shadows in many of my images to create mood, drama and a feeling of intimacy, I’m always looking at the sunlight & checking the weather on your wedding day as I am wanting to photograph the portraits of you both in the most creative, dramatic and atmospheric light possible. This style is not best suited for an entire day. I will capture your wedding day, with a good mix of both dramatic portraits and blend clean photography throughout, to create an accurate representation of your day which can be seen in all my blog posts.
DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT WITH YOU?
I do indeed. I bring three camera bodies and have backup lenses, batteries and memory cards.
DO YOU HAVE A SECOND SHOOTER?
I get asked this a lot and the answer is no (unless both photography & videography are provided). My main reason is that I am very protective over the attention and care that you receive plus I’m a bit of a control freak, also I blend in more when I need to and I’m less obvious to your guests allowing me to capture those great laughing natural unaware moments. I have many wedding photographer friends who can step in and help if your guest list is over 200. Everything you have seen in my blogs has been photographed by me other than one wedding which had a guest list of 250. If I am filming and photographing you’re wedding then I do have a second videographer.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH A YEAR?
I only work with about 40 couples a year, so it’s really best once your heart is set to get in touch, the disappointment in finding out that your date is not available is not nice to hear I genuinely care about every couple, every wedding. The people I meet at weddings become friends for life, they see me as their family photographer. First baby, family photos and special occasions. I capture a moment in history for you and its an amazing experience.
HOW OFTEN DO WE NEED TO MEET BEFORE OUR WEDDING DAY?
I love to build on our relationship after-all Im going to be with you on the biggest day of your lives for over 12 hours and we need to be a perfect little team, I call us the “A team”. We can talk, we have social media allowing you to become so familiar with me we become friends and this is how the nerves go and your complete trust in me is built. It will be beautiful, you and your guest will be relaxed with me around, I don’t have to tell them what to do, where to look. I watch the story unveil and try to capture every bit of it.
HOW CAN WE FIND OUT MORE ABOUT YOUR WEDDING COLLECTIONS?
I’d love to hear about your wedding, say hi and I’ll get the full wedding brochure over to you.
WHAT WILL OUR INVESTMENT BE?
Newborn sessions are £65 and there is a minimum spend of £550. All newborn sessions include a complimentary Sitter session when they are between 7-9 months old.
WILL MY BABY BE SAFE?
I am fully trained by three of America’s leading newborn photographers. Newborn photography is an art and a skill. I am handling the most precious part of your family and you have the reassurance in knowing that my care and safety for your baby is more important than the photos themselves. I am experienced to understand the needs of the baby during the session. There are many untrained photographers out there offering really poor quality Newborn photography so please study their work to see the quality and if you feel they are safe in handling and caring for your baby during the session.
WHAT IS THE BEST AGE TO PHOTOGRAPH OUR BABY?
The best age to photograph your baby is between 7-10 days old. Its always best to book in advance as I only operate on a ﬁrst come ﬁrst serve basis. If you are interested in having a maternity session as well these are best taken when you are about 7 months into the pregnancy.
HOW LONG DOES THE NEWBORN SESSION TAKE?
The session lasts up to 2 1/2 hours take a look at my newborn PAGE to see some examples
WHEN WILL WE SEE THE FINISH PHOTOGRAPHS?
Newborn photos will be ready within a few weeks after the session for you to come and view.
