What are your prices?
My collections start at £1295 for a full day of wedding photography. Contact me for more details about my collections including prices.
Can we print from the digital downloads?
Yes, if you wish. The high resolution images come without a watermark or logo. The only restriction is that you can't use the photographs for commercial purposes (you can't sell them.
Where are you based?
I live in Newcastle upon Tyne but I'm available for weddings anywhere in the UK and beyond. I don't charge extra travel or accommodation fees for mainland UK weddings. For weddings outside the UK, add travel and accommodation costs to my usual fee.
Do you still do traditional group photos?
Yes! I recommend that you have 6 to 10 group shots maximum, as each can take 5 minutes or so to set up. Your ushers and best man can help me out by gathering the correct guests. I won't make you have group shots if you don't want them.
How many photographs will I get?
Every wedding is unique so it's impossible to give an exact number but usually 300 or more.
Can I see a full wedding?
Of course! Here is Sarah & Bry's full wedding at Ellingham Hall, Northumberland. It will give you an idea of how many photographs you will get, what my style is, and how your online gallery will look.
Did you study photography?
I have a B.A. Hons. 1st Class in Media Production. I specialised in film and part of my application portfolio was photography based.
How long will it be before I can see my photographs?
Your images will usually be online within 4 weeks. I normally do a sneak preview of a handful of images within 48 hours of the wedding. Portrait photographs are usually available after 2 weeks.
How much is the deposit?
I ask for a £200 deposit to secure your wedding date, with the balance to be paid one month before your wedding.
Can my friends and family buy photographs?
Yes. I will set up a password protected online gallery on this site and you are free to give out the password to your friends and family.
Do you require a meal at the reception?
Absolutely not! I'd rather sneak off into a quiet corner, have a sandwich and a cuppa and check my equipment over.
What should I wear to my portrait shoot?
Whatever you like. Please bear in mind the location, but if you want to wear a mankini on the Quayside then go for it!
What is your policy on cookies and privacy?
When are you available to meet for a consultation?
My normal 'office hours' are 9:30am to 5:00pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. If I'm not shooting a wedding on a Saturday, I'm available on that day too. If you'd prefer to meet one night after work, Mondays at 8:00pm are best for me.
I have a list of dream weddings I would like to photograph. It might be a wedding in a specific venue or geographic location, a themed wedding or anything else that I think is awesome. If your wedding fits a wedding on my list, or you're doing something truly extraordinary, make sure you tell me about it because I'll apply a generous discount on my normal fee. Once that particular wedding is booked, I'll take it off the list!
