Do you travel?
Yes, all the time!

How many weddings have you shot?
A couple hundred.

How many photos do we get?
We typically deliver between 600 – 800 images from a full-day wedding – each one graded and edited in our unique style.

How long until we see our photos?
We deliver a preview with-in two weeks of the wedding, and complete set within 8-10 weeks.

Can we print our own photos? Can we print through you?
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.

Absolutely, just ask us when we meet and we will happy show you a full wedding exactly how it was delivered.

Do you bring back up gear?
Always, and lots of it.

Do you have business insurance?

What gear do you shoot with?
We shoot with Fujifilm mirrorless cameras and lenses

Privacy add-on: We don’t want images on social media.
Most of our couples contact us after seeing and falling in love with our portfolio – at the same time we absolutely understand and want to respect some people's desire to keep images off social media. Therefore we created a privacy option for a small admin fee. If you choose this option we still maintain a back-up of your images in case you ever lose them in the future, but we put a note on your images to never use them for awards, social media or our portfolio.

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.
