Q&A:

Q: What services do you offer?

A: I can offer a tailored package which can include a pre-wedding shoot, signing frame, video slideshow, 2nd shooter coverage and more. Let me know what you'd like and I will put together a package just for you.

Q: How do I book you for my wedding?

A: To secure your date you would pay a £200 deposit by credit card or debit card. The balance is due no later than 30 days before the wedding and is payable by bank transfer. Alternatively, I can arrange a payment plan to split the payment into equal payments.

Q: What locations do you cover?

A: I am happy to work at venues across the UK. I regularly cover weddings in Middlesbrough, Darlington, Durham, Newcastle, the North East and North Yorkshire. So if you are looking for a wedding photographer nearby - I can certainly help you.

Q: Can I visit you?

A: Yes - I always like to meet the bride and groom before the big day. We'd book a convenient appointment at your location or mine. My address is Acklam Hall, Hall Drive, Middlesbrough TS5 7DY.

Q: Can I find out more about you and do you have any reviews?

A: Yes - you can visit the about me page on this website or visit my Facebook page or Instagram. You can see my reviews on Google, Facebook and at Hitched.co.uk and on my own reviews page.

Q: Do you do a digital only package?

A: If you want, you can choose to swap the album in the standard package for a USB in a presentation box with 100 x 9.5"x6.5" prints for the same price. I always recommend a wedding album to couples as something that is a record of your special day.

Q: Can I use my images on social media or print them?

A: Yes - you are granted a copyright license for your own personal use which includes standard resolution images for use on social media and for 6x4" prints. The high resolution files for use on large scale prints/canvases etc are available to purchase on a USB or DVD.

Q: How many wedding photographs will I receive?

A: It depends on the day and the size of the party and the amount of time I am covering. As a guide, I would typically produce 300-500 images from a 8 hour wedding.

Q: How long will it take to get the edited images back to me after the wedding?

A: I guarantee you'll get them within 2 weeks of the wedding although the typical time is around 1 week.

Q: Can I get the images in black and white?

A: Yes - I provide the images to download in both colour and black and white.

Q: Do you work with second shooter?

A: If you'd like the extra coverage that a second shooter can provide I can arrange that as an optional extra.

Q: Do you cover more than one wedding in a day?

A: No - never. I couldn't provide the focus and attention that each couple deserves if I was doing this.

Q: Would you be prepared to be a short notice wedding photographer

A: Yes I would -  I know things happen and people can fall ill or other issues crop up. If you are looking for a short notice wedding photographer then contact me to check availability.

Q: What equipment do you use?

A: I shoot with the latest Canon professional DSLR cameras - currently two Canon 5D Mark IVs. I always carry two cameras on me for a wedding to allow me to cover different shots and to minimise the risk of an equipment failure at a critical moment. Each camera has dual memory cards to protect the images in the event one card is corrupted. I use a range of Canon L Series lenses depending on the situation - primarily a 24mm-70mm f2.8 zoom and 70mm-200m f2/8 IS zoom. However, I also shoot with Canon L series 35mm f1.4, 50mm f1.2, 100mm f2.8 Macro and 135mm f2.0 prime lenses. Photos are captured in RAW format and edited using Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop - again depending on the effect I am looking to achieve. Images are backed up to a minimum of 3 hard-drives including one which is stored in a fire-proof safe. Edited images are then stored in the cloud on Dropbox and an online gallery. This approach is to, as far as possible, avoid the risk of an issue with the equipment or images which could compromise the day.

Q: Do you recommend any local wedding venues?

A: I do not recommend any venues as such. However, Acklam Hall where I am based is a great venue as a historic grade 1 listed building which has been recently refurbished. I do have some other favourite venues which are worth checking out - including Rockcliffe Hall Hotel & Spa in Hurworth-on-Tees, Wynyard Hall, Seaham Hall, Grinkle Park Hotel in Easington, Crathorne Hall near Yarm, Hardwick Hall near Sedgefield, Ramside Hall Hotel in Carrville, South Causey Inn near Stanley and finally the unique Crab & Lobster in Asenby near Thirsk.

Q: Do you cover same sex / LGBT+ weddings?

A: Yes - of course. I am very happy to cover a same sex / LGBT+ wedding. Please get in touch to discuss.

Q: Are you insured?

A: Yes - I have insurance as a professional wedding photographer with Hiscox including public liability to £2M

Q: How far ahead can I book?

A: I am happy to take bookings up to end 2021 provided you pay an initial deposit.

Q: Why does wedding photography cost what it does?

A: There is a wide variation on what wedding photographers charge throughout the UK. This is based on the experience of the photographer, the equipment being used, the demand for their service and how much time they are prepared to spend on each wedding. If you consider a typical wedding takes 40 hours of work from the initial communication, consultation, preparation and set up to the actual coverage, editing and distribution of the images afterwards. It is definitely possible for photographers to cut down the amount of time and cost a wedding takes. This typically involves not editing the photos properly or at all, going unprepared, under equipped, uninsured, untaxed etc. There is always someone who can offer to shoot your wedding for less - whether that be a friend, relative or novice photographer who is looking for practice. Given the once in a lifetime event that a wedding represents each couple has to decide what approach is best for them. This article about the true cost of wedding photography.  

Q: Do you have a contract?

A: Yes - this would be backed by a wedding photography contract which we'd both sign explaining the service and our responsibilities.
