I’m sure you’ll have lots of questions when planning your wedding, it can be a bit of a minefield. Here’s some questions I get asked regularly.
If you can’t find the answers you’re looking for feel free to email me via the Contact Form or na.lac19830115&gmail.com and I’ll be more than happy to talk through your questions.
What areas do you cover?
I am based in Halesowen and I offer wedding photography across the whole of the West Midlands. I will travel to most parts of the UK but this will incur in travel costs.
What is your style?
Couples always say they book me because they love natural, modern, creative images. If people ask me, I describe myself as a Documentary style /reportage Wedding Photographer. You can see from the many photos on this website the natural style I have. I can capture all the laughter, the glances, the fun and character-filled shots. I want to capture your friends and family as you know them best!
I am very relaxed photographer, but if you have a long tick-list of required shots that you’d like me to go through, I can also do that for you.
How many images will I get from my wedding?
It depends on the lenght of the service. With an 8 hours service you would get around 600+ pictures, with the 4 hours coverage you would get around 300+ images and with the 2 hours wedding potography you would get 200+ photos. I don’t limit the number of photos you receive but equally I don’t release anything to you that doesn’t live up to my high standards.
What is an Engagement Session?
Engagement Sessions are really just a practice before the big day and a great oppurtunity to meet up before your wedding day and spend an hour or so getting to know each other. We can take a little walk in the woods or a location of your choosing and get some cool extra photos of you both to add to your collection.
Could we meet you before booking?
You most certainly can! Just drop me a message and we can arrange something. If we can’t meet for any reason, don’t worry, we can chat on the phone or via Skype, Messsenger or Whatsapp, I would love to hear all about your plans!
Can we get a shorter package?
I do offer shorter/bespoke packages yes! This is covered in my pricing page but if you’re looking for something smaller just get in touch and tell me about your plans and i’ll see what I can do.
Do you do Albums?
Yes I do! and they are beautiful. All albums are completely bespoke and designed to tell the story of your day perfectly, just as you remember it. You can choose from a range of options to suit your wedding, just get in touch for more information.
Are you fully trained?
Like many Wedding Photographers I am mostly self taught and have been taking photographs and enhancing my skills for years. I come from a creative background.
What can you do if I dont like having my photo taken?
You are not alone by a long way. Most, if not all couples struggle with this one and I can relate to that as I also hate having my photo taken. So what can I do to help with that. I do not pose people, if they don't want to, I may offer some guidance to a point of course but I much prefer to place people where I want and then ask you to be intimate with each other, forget I am there and just be yourselves. Some couples struggle with this also so I may ask you to kiss or look at each other but it is always in a relaxed way. By getting you to just be yourselves you will find the best images. That quick cuddle or kiss I did not ask you to do, they are the images I look for. Bottom line is..... it is your day not a photoshoot. I want to capture the moments you share with your partner and not images you will never naturally take.
Do you plan your photos?
I love to explore. I always prepare myself for your wedding. Before your wedding If I am able I will visit the venue a couple of times and have a good nosey around. I love that. Visting new venues to see what I can get out of it. I then work out how to shoot your wedding from the group shots to your couple photos so on the day everything runs smoothly. I do plan your day, but plans can change and with experience I know I may not get the shots I would like to take for you but I have already prepared for that. for example, if it rains!!!
I am not a photographer who just turns up to click click click. I care about every image I take I care about every client I work with, every wedding is special and I dedicate my time to each wedding. I love what I do and I make sure you get the best possible customer service and images I can. If you want a photographer/videographer who will take care of you from start to finish then I am the person for you.
How do I book?
I take 20% deposit to secure the date. If you are ready to book, I’ll just ask for a few details so that I can send over a contract for you to sign along with details of how to pay the booking fee.
Do you request to be fed on my wedding?
Yes, I would need some sort of meal on wedding which is longer than 4hours, please.
Can I have drone coverage on my wedding?
Yes, you can have drone coverage on your wedding, however I cannot guarantee it. It depends on weather, venue permission, and also there are safety concerns too. I am fully trained drone operator, but always safety first.
