FAQ

How far in advance should I book?

It is good to enquire about your preferred date as soon as you start planning or confirming the venue. I have already opened my diary for 2022/23.

How far are you happy to travel to photograph my event?

I have no problems travelling from Oxfordshire anywhere in the UK or the rest of the world!

Do you work with any videographers or second photographers?

I can recommend some great Videographers and I also enjoy working with second shooters.

Do you meet couples before the wedding?

Yes. I would love to meet you and to know more about your plans and answer any questions you might have. If you are unable to meet me due to distance or other engagements, we can then e-meet on zoom or skype. I also introduce myself to the Wedding Planner (should you decide to work with one) to make sure I have all the details and timings of your BIG DAY!

What equipment do you use?

At the moment I use two full frame Canon bodies with a full range of lenses, from wide angle to zoom to make sure I am able to cover all variations of shots, from big group shots to the smallest details, such as wedding bands. I love using prime lenses for that painterly, creative feel too.

How do you work with clients to feel more comfortable in front of the camera?

I adore candid style photography, therefore most of the time you will not see me at all! I try to be as invisible as possible, however if I am being noticed, it is always a good moment for the group shot and laughter.I consider myself  friendly and approachable, so that might help as well!

Do you photograph groups?

Yes!

Do you accept photo lists before the wedding day?

Absolutely. I like to know your special requirements and what shots you wish me to cover, providing circumstances and time allow.

How long will you stay at our wedding?

It all depends on the package you decide to choose, however I am aware of the fact that there might be slight delays, so please be assured I am not going to disappear only because we agreed a certain amount of time. I respect it is one of the most important days of your life.

How long do I wait after the wedding to receive my photos?

I would say about 5-6 weeks, however I always try to deliver them faster to you to be able to enjoy the photographs and bring back those memories. It is important not to rush the process though in order to be able to deliver the best work and best edits. After all, you will cherish them for years to come!

How do you supply photos after the wedding day? Do you offer photo albums?

I offer a range of options, including prints and albums. You will receive digital edited photographs in colour and B&W online and you will also have your own online password protected gallery. Please remember, you can always get in touch with me at any point after the wedding and speak to me about any extra products, I will be happy to advise.

How many images will I receive?

It depends on the package you select and how many hours you would like me to cover. I would say it is usually about 80-100 chosen images per hour.

Will the photos be in colour or black and white?

I provide both, colour & B&W version. Colour is so important, however B&W takes it to the next level and focuses more on emotions and people, bringing in the documentary feel to them.

Do you have any lighting tips?

Spring/Summer natural light is fantastic! Spacious rooms with big windows, delicate colours and some lovely warm light in the evening is great.

Do you have backup camera equipment?

Yes! I use two camera bodies during the day. I also like working with a second shooter, who can also cover the groom’s preparations and different angles throughout the day.

Do you just photograph weddings and families?

My great passion is beauty and fashion photography and I have been fortunate enough to have been published in many renowned publications, including Marie Claire, Observer and Wedding Ideas.

Will you photograph any other events? Baby showers, engagement parties, birthdays etc?

Yes! Please get in touch with any further information, I will be glad to help.

Can I see more of your work?

Certainly! I am happy to share full wedding coverage with you, so that you are able to see the day from bridal preparations until late evening.
