How would you describe your style?
In essence, I don't dictate or direct but instead observe to discreetly cover events as they happen. I photograph your day as it naturally unfolds, capturing real moments and creating a timeless record of your day.

What is your colour to black and white ratio?
My standard approach to processing a wedding is to supply a mixture of colour and black and white images, this usually works out to be somewhere around a 60/40 or 70/30 split in favour of black and white. I can, in addition to putting together this 'mixed' set, supply you with all of your final images processed and perfected in colour, as a separate gallery on your website - available to view, download and share.
Do you have back-up equipment?
Yes, I always have at least three cameras and multiple lenses, it’s exceptionally rare that a technical issue occurs but in the event that it does, I’m covered!
How long have you been a wedding photographer and how many weddings do you shoot each year?
I've been a full time wedding photographer since 2004, averaging 50 weddings a year. I've documented weddings of most faiths and cultures and have worked in hundreds of different locations and venues, and across the globe!
How many images will we receive and do we get usage rights?
Images numbers largely depend on how much coverage you opt for in your package and whether you add a second photographer. During a typical wedding day, you will receive between 300 and 500 images. You are assigned full and unrestricted usage rights to print and distribute yourselves.
Do you do group photographs?
Documentary wedding photography doesn’t automatically rule out the need for groups shots. I regularly do around 3 group photographs at each wedding and will request a group photo list prior to the wedding day.
Will you be photographing our wedding?
Yes, it will be me photographing your wedding, my name will be shown clearly on the contract between us. Read a little more about me.
Are you fully insured?
I have full, professional insurance to cover every aspect of my wedding photography services.
Does it matter if you haven’t worked at my venue before?
No. If I haven’t worked at a venue before I factor in a venue visit on the morning of the wedding (or before) to familiarise myself. If you're still concerned, please check to see if I've worked at your venue by running a search on my blog or wedding venue section.
How long after the wedding will the photographs be ready?
Your images are ready within 6 to 8 weeks following the wedding. I always aim to try and deliver them sooner than this if possible.
Where are you based and how far will you travel?
I’m based in the Wiltshire town of Devizes but most of my commissions involve wedding photography in London and the surrounding counties. I travel all over the UK and overseas, shooting weddings in France, Austria, Cyprus, Kentucky and even Melbourne!
Do your prices include VAT?
Yes, all wedding photography prices displayed are inclusive of 20% VAT.
Can we meet or chat?
If you would like to chat over the phone, meet me in person or even over Skype, just get in touch and we can easily get something into the diary.
