Some people tend to book 1 to 2 years in advance, but that's entirely up to you. For weddings, we only take one booking per day and once booked we commit that date on a first come, first served basis. For Portraits and Commercial booking so far ahead is not normally required.
As a photographer I try and limit myself to 35/40 weddings per year to allow me to focus on and give the required attention to my new and existing clients.
To confirm and hold your date, a £250 deposit is required to be paid along with a signed copy of the booking contract. The final balance be paid and cleared 6 weeks prior to the big day. Are payment plans available? We do not offer payment plans as such, however we are looking at working with a finance company and information will be posted online once available.
Included in all wedding packages are the printing rights for the happy couple. This means you are able to get your prints from a number of companies or you can print your own. It is always strongly advised that to get the best quality and longevity you get these from a professional printing lab.
For weddings, and as part of the consultation process we discuss any key shots you require to be taken and we work this into our process on the day.
The same also applies to our portrait and event photography - but almost all our clients allow us take full creative control.
I will always be your primary photographer, along with Steve from Purple Parrot Photography.
We may also have an additional shooter or assistant but this will be discussed with you first.
I understand that guests may wish to take photographs too, and especially at a wedding, and this is okay. However, I ask that I photograph alone during couple and group shots.
In addition to this we would request that we are the only professional photographers shooting at a wedding.
We usually arrive 1.5 to 2 hours prior to the ceremony to cover arrivals etc, and are usually with the bride and groom until the first dance, depending on the package agreed.
Obviously we would always appreciate knowing in advance if this is was the case, but understand this is not always possible.
If requested, additional coverage is charged at £100 per hour
Yes, of course! It would be our pleasure to document your celebration of any faith, non-faith, or orientation.
We fully understand each and every wedding is different and bespoke to you, and are happy to discuss any ideas changes or customisations you might have
Yes - this is not included as standard in our packages but is most certainly something we can discuss with you.
We aim to get a mini selection of images online for you within 24 hours, with the rest to follow. This can be between 4-8 weeks after the day of the wedding.
Great question, and whilst this is usually in the region of 300-500 pictures this can often exceed 750-1000 depending on the length of the day
Firstly, we always like to meet clients for a ‘no obligation’ chat to discuss their requirements and learn about their day. This can either be a meeting in person or a skype/phone call.
This is a good way for us to get to know you and you to know us as well. In order to secure your wedding date, you will need to sign a wedding contract form, complete a pre-wedding questionnaire, and pay a deposit.
Our main aim is to provide you with a set of images that reflect the story of your day, therefore our style is very much grounded in contemporary and reportage wedding photography. However, we also do appreciate that family like to have a few group portraits, and will happily plan and coordinate these with you before and on the day.
