We deliver a preview with-in two weeks of the wedding, and complete set within 8-10 weeks.

You can absolutely print your own photos, we use a generous creative-commons license, so you can print, copy and share the photos for personal use as much as you want.
If you want to print through us, we offer a range of fine-art albums that we think are simply the best way to re-live and share your wedding.
Is there an easy way to share our photos with our guests?
Yes! We deliver your photos to you via a password protected online gallery that makes it easy for you to share with the people you choose, no matter where they live in the world.
Can we see a full wedding gallery?
Absolutely, just ask us when we meet and we will happily show you a full wedding exactly how it was delivered.
We don’t want images on social media.
Most of our couples contact us after seeing and falling in love with our portfolio, so we are very grateful that so many of our couples really understand that sharing our work is a big part of keeping our business sustainable – that said, we completely respect if you don’t want us being able to share your images this way. Please just let us know if this is the case; there may be a small admin fee so that we can manage this request and to make sure your images are keep separate from our other work.
Do you have business insurance?
What gear do you shoot with?
We shoot with Fujifilm mirrorless cameras and lenses
Do you bring back up gear?
Always, and lots of it.
What is included in your wedding films
Our wedding films are a short, one song length video, that gives you more of the vibe and feel of the parts of the day that are better felt through film. Your wedding shouldn’t feel like you have the full paparazzi following you, we already work together 24/7 so we know how to keep the flow of the day feeling natural. We don’t record the vows or deliver a long uncut video of the whole day (if you are wanting this, we will happily recommend some videographers who do this kind of thing). But what we do create is a great little watchable (and re-watchable) film of
the experience that will be your wedding.
Can we add a wedding film to one of the shorter packages
Sorry, because of the editing style of our films (high energy & fast cuts, that give the vibe of the whole day) our films are only available with our longer wedding packages to make sure we get enough footage to give us the options we need while editing.
Planning consult add-on: What is the best time of the day for photos?
We have a huge amount of experience of what works and what doesn’t when it comes to planning the time and structure of a wedding day. Most couples don’t need the full expense of a wedding planner but simply a day-plan and some tips for how to get the best out of their day. We will listen to what’s important to you and help you craft a custom day plan to help make time for these things so that you can be sure you are making time for the experiences that matter. Whether you choose this add-on or not, we still provide you with some tips and info that will help when it comes to creating the day-plan yourself.
How do we pay you? What types of payments do you accept?
You can pay via bank transfer or with a credit card from your client space. All our wedding collections have three payments. The first is due on booking; the second, 6 months before the wedding; and third, 1 month before the wedding.
How do we book you?
We like to meet all our couples before booking – after-all you definitely want a photographer that ‘gets’ you. We then gather the booking details and set you up with your own client space. From here you can sign the contract and make the first payment. Once we’ve received that payment you are fully booked in.
