Wedding Photography FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Some questions pop up all the time, so I created this wedding photography FAQ page to try to answer any questions or concerns that you might have!

If you’ve have another question, please get in touch, I’d love to help you!

Can we meet you?

Yes, I try to meet or at least speak to all my couples. It’s important we get to know each other BEFORE you put down any money.

It’ll have a huge impact on your photos if we get along, and I want you to enjoy the process and book the right person!

I believe this so much that I don’t limit you to a number of meetings.

We're completely awkward in front of the camera, Will you help us?

Honestly, I feel exactly the same. Camera out, awkward feels on. I get it.

That’s why I work hard to create an enviroment where you can relax, let go and just be you. 

I prompt you and give you things to do so you’re not focused on the camera, and you might even have a bit of fun!

Do I need an engagement session?

An engagement session is a great way to mark your engagement. But it also gives you a chance to see how I work as a photographer.

You don’t have to be all dressed up like you will be on your wedding day. AND it’s great practice at getting relaxed in front of the camera!

AND gives us a chance to get to know each other better. This will make for EVEN better wedding photos.

But you don’t have to have one, the choice is yours.

How many images do I receive?

I don’t limit the number of images you receive. I get rid of duplicates and blinks and give you the best of the bunch.

When will we get our photos?

I know waiting for your photos is tough. It’s one of the most exciting things you’ll be looking forward to once you’re married.

I’ll get you a sneak peak and blog post to share with friends and family within the first week or two. And after 4 weeks you’ll receive all your lovely images to relive the day!

Albums take a bit longer to produce as we’ll work together to confirm the perfect design.

How do we book you?

I’ll send you a link to your very own client portal where you’ll find all your info.

You’ll need to sign a contract and pay a booking fee which secures your wedding date with me. 

The booking fee is 25% of the package price. Don’t worry, you can book a smaller package and upgrade later if you want to!

What happens if you're ill on the day?

Only a very serious illness will keep me from photographing your wedding day! As long as I’m able to I’ll be there.

But if something horrible did happen and I couldn’t make it, then I’ll do my best to get you a replacement photographer.

I have a back up list of photographers, who all work very similarly to myself, for this very reason.

They’ll photograph your day, and I’ll take over the editing. This will keep your images consistent and ensure you have images you’ll love.

If I’m so unwell I can’t do the editing, then I’ll transfer the money you’ve paid me to my backup photographers, and they’ll take over the job.

If I really can’t find someone (which is extremely unlikely), I’ll give you a full refund.
