Questions you may have
Q - Are you a full time photographer?
A - Yes, photography is my only job which allows me to devote all the time, care and attention needed to your images.
Q - How long have you been in business?
A - I officially started running my own business in 2011 although I took my first professional portrait shots in 1999
Q - Do you just cover weddings in Staffordshire?
A - No! Although I am based in the heart of the Staffordshire I often cover weddings in the surrounding counties and beyond too. As of September 2014 I have a passport and would consider traveling further afield for destination weddings. Included in the package price is travel within a 40 mile radius
Q - Why do couples book you?
A - Friendly & relaxed photography - creative professional images - I pride myself on high service levels - bespoke albums available
Q - How do I know if you are free on my Wedding Date?
A - Call or Text 07946 545214 to check or click HERE for my Availabilty Calendar
Q - Do you supply High Resolution Digital Images?
A - Yes, a unique heart shaped USB drive containing your wedding images is yours to keep included within the price (**unless you opt for the complete album box in the album package - then USB comes in the same material as the album cover**). This USB comes with the print release so you can get as many images printed as you would like
Q - What about Wedding Albums?
A - If you opt for the digital only package, I also specialise in Album Design to tell the story of your day in an archive quality book that you can choose as a bolt on. Most couples want to view these and see more of my work so I bring them to any meet up. You don't have to decide right away whether an Album is right for you but it's a good idea to know before the Wedding as I can shoot with this in mind.
Q - Can I have a 2nd Photographer on the day?
A - Yes, you can have this as a bolt on for an extra so your day gets covered from another perspective
Q - Do I have to pay a booking fee in advance?
A - Yes, a booking fee secures your date. The balance is due 6 weeks before your Wedding
Q - Do you use a contract?
A - Yes. Be wary of any Photographers that don't have a contract for you to sign as it protects both parties.
Q - What payment methods do you accept?
A - Cash, Cheque, Bank Transfer.
Q - Do you accept credit card?
A- I currently have no credit or debit card terminal, sorry.
Q - Do you have Insurance?
A - Yes. Some venues ask to see public liability cover before they allow photographers to shoot there or you may want the details for your own peace of mind. I can provide this on request.
Q - What happens if your camera breaks / gets damaged?
A - Don't worry, I have 2 or 3 camera bodys with me at your wedding and a duplicate of each lens and they are all fully insured
Q - How long after the Wedding will I see my images?
A - A handful of 'sneak peeks' can be made to Facebook within 48 hours for you to share and tag your guests in. The full online gallery takes around 3 weeks. Delivery of your USB drive is normally shortly after this by Royal Mail Special Delivery
Q - Anything else I should know?
A - I am a Qualified Member of the Guild of Photographers so you have peace of mind that I can deliver professional images consistently
Q - That all looks fantastic and we are interested in finding out more.....What Now?
A - Use any of the methods on the Contact Page to check your date with me or use the Availability Checker above. If I'm available the next step is normally to meet up, show you more of my work in sample albums and make sure I'm the right Photographer for you. Once you are 100% happy I can take a Booking Fee and lock in your date.
