You may have a few questions before you’re ready to book so I’ve tried to cover what I can here but if there’s anything else feel free to drop me a little note or give me a call.
I absolutely love your work so sign me up. What happens next?
That’s great news! To secure your wedding date I ask for a non-refundable deposit of £500. I always like to have at least spoken to you or to have met you in person where possible. I’ll then send you a booking form and contract to complete. I ask for deposits to be paid within 7 days of booking. It’s always worth doing this sooner rather than later if you’re getting married in the height of wedding season to avoid disappointment! Tell me all about your big day and check if I’m available through my Say Hello page.
For all other shoots, a non-refundable deposit of £200 is required to secure the session and as above I will send you a booking form and contract across.
I’ve narrowed down my photography search to a select few and would like to meet with you. Is that possible?
Absolutely! I always recommend either a Skype meeting or if its practical we can meet up somewhere local to me and chat through your day. We get to find out more about each other and generally walk away having had a little bit of fun too.
What is a wedding consultation and what if I can’t do this face to face?
This is where we meet up somewhere in Manchester to discuss your wedding plans and talk through your photography needs as well as how I work on the big day. I love meeting my new couples and getting to know you before the big day and this is the first step towards developing that relationship. I’m always happy to do this over a drink or two.
Don’t worry if we can’t make a face to face meeting work we can always do this over Skype or Facetime. I’ll try not to be in my PJ’s…
We’re on a bit of a tight budget, do you provide any discount?
Not as a general rule as it’s unfair to my existing couples who have already booked me. But if your wedding is out of the peak season, or is midweek (Mon to Thurs) or if it’s something you think would be right up my street then tell me all about it and we can have a chat.
What happens in terms of photography if it rains on my wedding day?
Well we just embrace it! It’s always good to plan for rainy days and maybe have some wet weather footwear and a few brollies to hand and we can head out if it’s not too bad. I’ve been faced with all kinds of weather conditions and always find interesting places for your portraits. My advice would be go with whatever happens on the day and I’ll always come up with a plan for your photography.
I’ll be itching to get my photos after the wedding, how long does it take for us to get them?
Your photographs can take up to 10 weeks to receive especially during peak wedding season. As I carefully select and edit every single image you receive I like to do this justice and actually this is where my creativity kicks in again ensuring your images are presented beautifully in my signature style.
Don’t worry though as I tend to put a little preview up shortly after the big day either on my Facebook business page or on my blog so you’ll get a little peek quite early on!
Do you provide albums and prints?
Yes. I suggest having an album consultation meeting after you have had time to enjoy your photos. There is so much album choice out there that the options are endless. Album prices start at £200.
Prints and framing is also available.
Do you have wedding insurance?
Yes. I have both public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
Do we need to feed you at the wedding?
Yes please that would be lovely. It can be a long day so I always appreciate a hot meal.
