Wedding Photography Frequently Asked Questions 


Do you have insurance?


Yes, I am fully insured with Public Liability Insurance as well as Professional Indemnity Insurance.



Why do I have to sign a contract?

It’s simply an agreement between us, for me to agree with you the service I will provide and the payment you will make for that service, you will receive a signed copy for your records.



What travel is included?


My wedding photography fees cover all my travel within a 20mile radius of my home in the Lake District.

I do travel beyond this distance but there will be additional travel costs involved and this will be agreed at the time of booking.



What if it rains on our wedding day?


It’s known to be good luck if it rains on your wedding day!

I bring along a couple of cream wedding umbrellas, so if your willing and it’s not a complete downpour we can still capture some magical moments of you both in the grounds of your venue on your big day. 

If it is extreme weather then of course we can arrange any group shots etc inside your venue.



Do you require a meal at our wedding?


That really is up to you both! For a full day I will need to eat a hot meal and take a short break…whether I am included within your numbers as a guest to eat, or whether I grab something from a bar meal menu separate is entirely up to you.

Having a meal at the same time as you makes things far more easier, from my experience people don’t like photos while they eat and its not very flattery, so this is an ideal point for a break, I would then be ready to continue shooting when you’ve also both eaten.



Do I get raw files?


No. As the client you will receive high-resolution Jpg photographs, edited in a manor reflective of my style and aesthetic.


The original photo file (known as a raw file) is basically the foundation that allows me to create my finalised photo style. It’s like asking a chef for the ingredients and not the final dish!

It is solely for my office use only; I can assure you your final photographs will be beautiful and natural matching my approach to wedding photography.



How many photographs will I recieve?


It is difficult to give you an exact number since the number of photographs taken depends on many things...the number of guests, hours of coverage, any planned events etc.

I do not limit the number of photographs I take on your wedding day and I will supply you with the best photos.



When do you require payment?


I ask for a fee of £100, at the time of booking, which secures your date. The outstanding balance is then due anytime until 2 weeks prior to your date.



How long will it take to get our Wedding Photographs afterwards?


I work hard to make sure that your wedding photographs are ready as soon as possible without compromising on quality. I aim to have your wedding photographs completed within 4 weeks from your wedding date but more often than not it is less than this. Will vary with peek periods, I will however keep you informed.



How do I book?


Firstly, Check my availability either through my website contact page or direct with myself.

Secondly, get in touch! I like to meet my clients for a ‘no obligation’ chat to discuss their requirements and learn about their day. This is a good way for me to get to know you, and you to get to know me as well. In order to secure your wedding date, you will need to fill out a booking form and sign a wedding contract and pay the booking fee, then make a note to pay the remaining balance up until 2 weeks prior to your day.  

We can keep in touch as little or often as you wish before the big day.
