Do you travel?
Yes! I regularly shoot in England and Scotland and have weddings booked for Colorado, Iceland, Mexico and Italy currently.
Destination weddings and elopements are quoted on an individual basis for travel costs.
Is travel included?
For venues within a 2 hour drive time from Margam SA13, travel is all included
Venues further afield will require an overnight stay which will be an extra £150 (£300 for Scotland & Northern Ireland)
Why do you require an overnight stay if my venue is more than 2 hours away?
Simply because I won't risk leaving the morning of your big day and getting stuck in traffic or on a closed motorway/bridge etc.
If your venue is over 2 hours away (by google maps estimates) I will head over the night before and get an early start on your day!
When will my final balance be due?
The final balance is due 1 month before your wedding. You can make early payments or pay in full on booking.
Any money paid over the retainer amount is protected until the date your final balance would be due
What if you haven't shot at our venue?
No issue at all! I will do venue visits beforehand to check lighting situations, scout locations for portraits and learn of any restrictions. You are more than welcome to come with me and discuss any and all ideas.
If I book, will it be you shooting my wedding?
Of course! I don't hire out any associate shooters on my behalf. I take on a very limited number of weddings a month to ensure I am not overbooked and my clients receive exceptional service.
The ONLY time I will ever send an associate is if for an unexpected reason I am unable to attend your wedding. THIS IS EXTREMELY UNLIKELY, but if the pandemic taught us anything then it's to be prepared for the worst. I have a network of photographers I work with who would take over in this instance and I would edit the images and offer a post wedding couples shoot.
Please be assured this is extremely unlikely. In all my years shooting weddings I have not had to get an associate in but I need to have provisions in place just in case - for your peace of mind and my own.
Do you also do Video?
No. In my opinion one person cannot properly provide full coverage of photo and video at one event.
I do have a package with a lovely and talented videographer which gives clients a discount on our services when booked together.
Can I book a second shooter?
You can but usually one photographer is plenty to cover a full day for you!
I usually recommend a second shooter If you know you want full coverage of both partners getting ready (at different locations) or if you have 200+ guests.
Do we really have to feed you?
This question always makes me laugh because I had no idea it was a thing before starting to shoot weddings!
But the answer is no you absolutely do not have to provide meals. Sometimes venues will already have vendor meals that they prepare, all I will ask is for you to check if they do this and let me know so I can make other arrangements if not.
What if your camera breaks on our wedding day?
I always carry 3 cameras and multiple lenses/flashes in case of any equipment failure so don't worry! You're in safe hands with me
How long until we receive our photos back?
A preview link will be sent out typically within 24 hours of your day (this may increase to 48 during peak season)
Your full online gallery will be delivered usually between 4-6 weeks. If you have opted for an album or wall art they can take up to an additional 4 weeks for design and printing.
Are you insured?
Yes. If your venue requires a copy please let me know.
We want to do something a little different, can you help with ideas?
Yes! When you book me you get my guidance and creative ideas. If you have any particular ideas for shots just let me know and I can make your ideas a reality. I'm more than happy to work with sparklers, confetti and smoke bombs to add something different to your images ( though these will be subject to venue approval)
Are you LGBTQ+ Friendly?
Makes me sad that this is even a question, but of course I am <3
Are you dog friendly?
