FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DO WE HAVE TO PAY, AND WHEN?

To secure me for your wedding day, I only need a deposit and signed terms. The deposit is 20% and the remaining balance is due on the first day of your wedding month, no later than 14 days before your wedding day.

WE MIGHT WANT AN ALBUM, CAN WE DECIDE LATER?

Absolutely! If an album isn’t included in your package, you can choose to get one anytime. Sometimes my couples order an album once they’ve received their final images, even if it’s a few weeks afterwards.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE WANT TO BOOK?

I squeal with excitement. After that, in order to secure my services on your date, I require a 20% deposit (usually by BACS) and signed terms. I send you my terms and conditions by email for you to read, complete and return, and these include my bank details for the deposit.

After that, I like to keep in touch with you, usually by email, between now and the big day. We’ll look to arrange your pre-wedding shoot at a convenient time, and discuss plans as necessary. You’re welcome to follow me on social media (FB and Insta are best) to see what I get up to in between.

WILL YOU PHOTOGRAPH THE LITTLE DETAILS, AND FAMILY GROUPS?

I’ll always photograph the little details you’ve carefully arranged for your wedding day, like the table decorations and the table plan, as long as they’re available. And yes, I definitely do group shots, as parentals usually demand them! I tend to keep to around 8 groups, so you don’t spend hours bogged down in group shots with your face locked in a perma-smile.

DO WE HAVE TO DO A PRE-WEDDING SHOOT? IF WE DON’T HAVE IT, WILL YOU TAKE SOME MONEY OFF?

You don’t have to do a pre-wedding shoot, but from previous experience, my couples will tell you it’s a great opportunity to get out all the nervous giggles, plus it’s a nice dry run for you to see how I operate, and for me to see what you’re like in front of my camera! At the end you get some lovely photographs and everyone’s a winner.

If you choose not to have the pre-wedding shoot, sadly no money gets knocked off, as it’s actually a bonus for me to get together with you before the big day.

WHAT IF YOU HAVEN’T PHOTOGRAPHED AT OUR VENUE BEFORE?

There are literally hundreds of wedding venues across Essex, Suffolk and the UK, with new ones opening all the time. If for some reason I haven’t photographed there before, rest assured I do all the necessary prep before the day to ensure I know all the best spots to photograph.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Wedding forums seem to encourage you to ask this question! Fear not – I am fully insured with professional indemnity and public liability insurance.
