Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

What would it be like having you as our photographer?

ANSWER

Like having an extra friend there with you on the day. I always aim to create relationships with my clients prior to the wedding day or special occasion, so when when the day comes, I feel more like a best friend, rather than a vendor. I feel I do my best work when we have a connection, and that's not only what I deserve, but you too.

QUESTION

Do you travel for weddings and sessions?

ANSWER

Absolutely! I am based in North Cornwall, which is stunning all on its own. But I have been lucky to travel all over for weddings and love stories. Travel has always been a passion of mine, so when I can combine it with photographing a love story, it’s an added bonus for me. If you are planning a destination wedding, I would love to hear from you.

QUESTION

Do you help with the planning process at all?

ANSWER

You bet! I'm here to make the process as easy for you as possible. If you need help figuring out a timeline, need recommendations, just reach out to me. I can pull from my experience at weddings to let you know what works, what doesn't, and how to ensure you have an incredible time.

QUESTION

When can we expect our photos?

ANSWER

I take on such a limited amount of jobs per year, which allows me to have a low turnaround time. However, the turnaround depends on how much I shoot, how busy I am, my travel schedule, and the holidays. Typically, for sessions it takes 4 weeks or less and weddings take 8 weeks or less. I try to get them back to you as soon as possible while making sure I give time to each and every image needs. But don't worry, I always include some sneak peeks and highlight reel of images to share with friends and family while you wait!

QUESTION

How many images will we receive?

ANSWER

Each one of my packages varies in how many images are delivered, but I promise I’ll always include plenty of images of everything I capture throughout the day. I don’t like to give a specific number but typically a wedding can consist of no less than 500 images for example. These are your memories and I promise to capture them fully and give you more than enough images to remember this time in your lives and to tell your story effectively. I believe in quality of quantity when it comes to your final product, and won't leave anything important out.

QUESTION

Do you give us all the raw and unedited images?

ANSWER

No, I don't as I believe the editing is half the magic of your final images and without that, your images are not fully complete. If I have sent over an image that is in Black and White and you would prefer it in colour, I am happy to send a coloured copy along to you, however keeping in mind, your wedding will include a selection of both colour and black and white, and most cases, I have made it black and white simply because the image is more powerful this way.

QUESTION

We are nervous about posing and being in front of the camera, can you help?

ANSWER

I hear this often but rest assured, my approach to portraits is laid back and natural. I would prefer you both be yourselves and look like yourselves in your images. I have a trained eye to catch anything that is unflattering. I will of course help direct you should it be required, but your focus will mainly be on one another. I will ensure you are comfortable and relaxed. It's about having fun and focusing on each other, not me, and not stiff poses.

QUESTION

Is it okay if some of our guests take photos at the wedding?

ANSWER

Absolutely, its an exciting day to be a part of. I just recommend that you consider having an unplugged ceremony. I would love to capture all the beautiful emotions on the faces of your friends and families, and its not always possible with screen in the way. What I like to say is, sometimes great things are worth waiting for, would you rather iPhone photos of your wedding, or the photos you are investing in?

It will always benefit your day and your final result when I am given the creative space to carry out what you've hired me to do.

QUESTION

I don't see family portraits on your website, do you capture these as well?

ANSWER

Definitely! I typically don't showcase these on my website as I focus on candid and documentary style storytelling but yes, I do capture these and believe you should include them. These are the types of photos that sit on your grandparents mantelpiece, and that your parents will treasure. We all love a good standard family portrait to enjoy for generations to come.

QUESTION

How do we book you?

ANSWER

Easy! Firstly I would love to hear from you and what your plans are for your day so far. You can do this by filling out the contact form on my website and as long as I have availability ( Hopefully!) I will send you my pricing and packages. We can chat through what would be best for you if you like, then we just sort out the business bits, like a signed contract and deposit, which is 30% of your package price.
