12 questions to ask your wedding photographer

Choosing a photographer for your wedding isn’t something you do every week so I’ve answered below ’12 questions to ask your wedding photographer’ – my most asked questions. I’m sure there are probably 100 or so more so if you’d like to know anything else, please use the contact form at the top of my website or email [email protected] Alternatively, head to the featured wedding stories.

It's simple! Let me know you'd like to secure me for your wedding date and I'll email you details of how to pay the deposit (25%) and how to sign your agreement. I'm often booked up to two years in advance for Summer Saturdays. Your balance is due a month before your wedding date.
I deliver anywhere between 400 and 600 images of your wedding day. This often depends on the location(s) of your wedding, the weather, time spent travelling between locations etc. All images are all fully edited, high resolution Jpegs, free of any watermarks.
Of course! A deposit and a signed agreement secures me to photograph your wedding day. Prior to this, I can make a note of your date in my diary and let you know if I have any other enquiries.
I'll be with you around 3 hours before your ceremony and stay with you until after your first dance. If the dance floor in rocking, I'll stay a little longer.
All galleries are delivered around 4 weeks after your wedding day. I'll send you the link on email with instructions on how to download your images.
Anywhere you wish! I'm based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire which had great transport links being in the Cotswold whcih is close to the A40 towards Oxford and London and the M5 motorway. There might be an extra charge if flights or boat trips are involved or if I have to stay overnight near your venue but usually all travel is included.
I do! Sometimes called pre-wedding shoots, these are a lot of fun. They usually result in around 50 - 70 images. There are lots of engagement shoot blogposts in my galleries: Click here for more information.
I store your images for up to a year after delivery. Please ensure you back up your images both on and offline so they are secure. If you need me to recommend an image storage service, I'd be happy to.
Of course! I encourage it The images are yours to print as you wish. Prints are also available to purchase via your online gallery which is included with every wedding. Alternatively I can recommend a place to get your images professionally printed. I also offer beautiful fine-art wedding albums with leather covers and archival cotton paper, printed in England. There are £450 for 15 spreads. There are some sample images on my pricing page.
Of course, I regularly work closely with lots of local professionals including make-up artists, magicians, caterers, singing waiters, harpists...you name it! Let me know what you require and I'll do my best to help.
Yes. I use two cameras with many different lenses on the day and carry backups for cameras and lenses with me too. If you are interested in what kit I use, send me an email and I'd be happy to share.
Absolutely! My public liability is available upon request.
