The simple answer is as soon as you have your wedding date in place. I take bookings up to 2 years in advance and can get booked up very quickly. As soon as you are booked, that date gets reserved only for you so no-one else can book.
Simply get in touch, we can arrange a consultation, all i require is a 25% booking fee and a signed contract - this secures your wedding date.
I also do a bespoke option where you tell me exactly what you would like and I will quote you based on your needs.
I travel within a 50 mile radius of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, anything over that I charge per mile.
I have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity cover
Mostly yes, I do tend to have a non-shooting assistant with me but if you would like a second shooter I can accomodate this for an additional fee.
This is where I take photos of the last minute touches to your hair and make-up (no photos without make-up), everyone getting ready, bridesmaids, the brides dress and all details like the flowers, the dress, the shoes, gifts etc. It's not just about the make-up 😉
I always have a plan for if it rains such as lighting equipment to shoot indoors and if I should fall ill there will be a contingency plan in place. I always have a backup camera and spare sets of everything should anything break down.
Obviously contact me as soon as you possibly can. The booking fee is non-refundable however the rest of the fee may be returned depending on how close to the wedding we are, full details of this will be in your wedding contract which I will go through with you before you sign it.
It depends on the how many photos you want, and the size of the groups for the formal photos – so it can range quite a bit. As a benchmark, each formal photo will take about 5 minutes, as you need to allow for finding guests, posing them and then take into account people not looking, blinking etc so I tend to limit my formal group shots to no more than 10 as any longer than that can get too much for the bride and groom, plus as I do this after the ceremony everyone is gagging for a drink! 😉
I try to get at least 1 done and posted on facebook within a day or two of the wedding to give you a sneaky peek! The rest of the photos can take up to 6 weeks in busy periods. All photos will be uploaded onto a private online gallery in full colour and black and white for you to view.
Essentially yes. I would ask you to choose a set of photos covering from bridal prep through to the first dance, then I will design an album adding additional photos to help with the flow of the album. I will then send you proofs of the album before it goes to print. Once you approve the design, it then goes to print, I will not order the album until you are happy.
The parent album is a popular choice and can either be a smaller copy of the main wedding album or one specifically designed just for them. I provide various options.
Your online gallery will be live for 12 months after the wedding which means you can purchase additional items long after your wedding if you want to spread the cost. Your photos will be backed up in triplicate for the full 12 months, after this the gallery will expire and your images are deleted.
