All the need to know bits and pieces
So Whats your style…..
I shoot 99% Documentry style with a large hint of creativ lighting thrown in for good measure. I hate cheese, the only cheese I like is on toast. I keep my weddings relaxed, simple and fun. Lets have some fun together!
What equipment do you use?
For all my stills work I currently use the Sony A7III camera bodies x2 married to a selection of Sigma Art prime lenses. I find the Sigma Art lenses to be the sharpest lenses around. For my Film work (video) I shoot with a Canon C200 Cinema camera which captures 4K from a super 35mm sensor in the Cinema RAW format which is the standard for Cine and Television work.
How many frames do you take on the day?
Over the recent years I have been delivering an adverage of 100 Fully edited images per hour. So on a 12 Hour day you can expect from 800-1500 unique images.
Im shy and dont like the camera!
I hear this nearly every wedding and its perfectly normal to be uneasy with a camera in front of you, hence why I am like a silent Ninja! But no need to worry 99% of the time you won’t even know I am taking a picture. Telephoto lenses are the best :)
How long will my images take?
Most of the time I aim to get your completed collection to you within a week. I purposely do not take on too many commissions so I can deliver high-quality work on time with no rushing to complete edits.
Are you insured?
Too right I am! I have full public liability insurance that will cover almost everything possible. I have not had to use it to date which is a jolly good sign! But its good to know that I do carry it.
Copyright talk to me…..
Ok so copyright and print release are two different things. I will always remain the copyright holder unless otherwise agreed. I grant all couples print releases so you can print the images yourself and share them too your heart’s content. All I as is you do not modify the image in any way.
Bad Weather! lets face it.
As I say to all my couples if it rains it rains. Embrace the rain and have fun no matter what the weather. You can do some amazing things in the rain and still have a good time. Think umbrellas, boots and backlit raindrops! trust me its amazingly cool! I’m a great believer making the most of what you have.
Ok Lets book…..
Commissioning me to be your wedding photographer is easy. We can meet up for an initial consultation, And if you like what you see we can go on to completing the booking by signing a contract and paying a 20% deposit.
Lets talk about Monies….
I like to keep things simple and dont offer a million and one packages. I only offer two day long packages. 8 hours £1500 and an unlimited time package for £2000. I have NO added extras! wedding books are included in both packages at no extra cost.
Only full-day packages, why nothing else?
I like to tell a story through my work, a story cant be told by only covering half of the day. As a visual storyteller, my job is to capture every last moment of your awesome day from start to finish. I will take on shorter commissions for certain things like elopements.
Im getting hitched abroad
No problem! I undertake weddings abroad every year and have vast experience working in many different countries around the world. I charge my normal full day rate plus my flights and accommodation.
