FAQ

Frequently Asked Photography questions

How would you describe your photography style (e.g. traditional, photojournalistic, creative)

See above. A mixture of both. I'm pretty flexible. I've done photojournalistic weddings where the couple wouldn't sit still for a nanosecond so everything is candid. Horses for photography courses.

How many weddings have you done? Have you done many that were similar to mine in size and style?

I've taken stills or video for around 40+ weddings as of last writing. I lean towards candid or photojournalism with a good hint of classical. Blown out backlights are all the rage these days (just look at any photographer's website for the couple walking through the field with the sun streaming behind them on an engagement photography shoot). It's not that I don't like that style it's that my photography gut tells me that's going to look very passé in years to come. I want your photos to look timeless. Classic. But sure, I'm not a pedant, I like a FEW blown out shots like the rest of 'em.

How long have you been in business?

I've been doing preossional photography since 2009 and full-time since 2012.

How far in advance do I need to book with you?

Preferably a few months but I know everyone's booking last minute these days. So if it's next month and I have the wedding date available - you're in!

Why are you so expensive?

Because I do great work. Because I love my photography clients, Because my clients love me. Because I always give that little bit extra.

Does an assistant take the shots?

No, usually I do all the shots and videos myself but when requested, or when necessary I'll use a second shooter for wedding photography and sometimes wedding videography.

Are you on time?

Always. In fact I'm usually early.
