Where are you located?
I am located in West London (W12). I regularly service throughout the UK and I am also available for destination weddings!
When should I book you and how do I secure my date?
It’s best to book at least a year in advance. So in order for me to reserve that date for you, a 30% retainer and a signed contract are required to secure your event. For Engagement shoots, a 50% retainer is required to secure a day and time for your shoot. Approximately 2 months leading up to your wedding day, I will be emailing you a schedule form to confirm the perfect timeline for your day, along with your 30-day payment reminder.
Who will be my photographer?
I will be your photographer. An assistant or second photographer can accompany me (depending on the Wedding package chosen).
How many hours should I have a wedding photographer for?
8-10 hours is usually long enough for a full day coverage.
Why do I need an Initial consultation?
I want to learn more about your photography needs and overall wedding vision, shooting details and key moments. It is very important having a well-planned wedding timeline and to discuss the throughout of the wedding process. This is key to having a successful event. You will get to know me before the wedding day so there are no surprises! We can also consider which kind of album you have in mind, print selections & wall art pieces.
What is your style of photography?
I like to consider my approach and style of photography as “editorial photojournalism” with a touch of fine art, elegance, romanticism and sophistication. I try to be as unobtrusive as possible while shooting, allowing me to photograph in a more fluid way, capturing authentic and candid moments.
I focus on personalities and I love exploring the spirit of the day, capturing emotions and spontaneous key moments, fun and laughter. Of course portraits or family formal group photos require a bit more directive.
I am also shooting in a way that will lend itself better to the design of your final wedding album, print selections & wall art pieces. I am very talented at editing your gorgeous photos and have them printed into exclusive, high quality display products. My main supplier is Graphistudio, which produces the most authentic, unconventional and elegant collection of photoproducts.
Are you insured and what equipment do you use?
Yes. I subscribe to Hencilla Canworth Limited, the specialist cover for photographers and artists. I am well equipped with Canon DSLR cameras and with professional lenses.
In the instance of Government restrictions banning weddings due to Covid-19 or similar, I agree to be flexible and move the couples wedding date free of charge, waiving the postponement fee and cancellation policy below, and for the same rate as stated on the contract within 12 months of the original wedding date. For postponements further in advance than the original wedding date stated on the contract, my current rates will apply for the chosen year.
You, the couple, agree to check my availability for any new wedding date before confirming with the venue and other suppliers. In the instance of Government restrictions meaning weddings can go ahead but at limited numbers I agree to discuss coverage and rates on a case-by-case basis. All amendments to postponed wedding dates can be done so in writing via email with agreement from you, the client and myself.
