Do you work with a second photographer?
I don’t typically work with a second photographer because working solo allows me to be more discreet and shoot the documentary images that really bring the feeling of your wedding alive. I tend to blend into your day as almost a guest with a camera, quietly working and building rapport with your guests enabling me to capture the true atmosphere of your big day without making it feel like a photo-shoot. The images you see on my website and my style of working is what will be delivered on your day. However, if you are planning a large wedding or feel your ceremony coverage would benefit from two photographers please contact me to discuss our options and I can advise you on whether it would enhance your coverage.
My wedding is not in Devon, can you still cover it?
Yes! Absolutely, although I am a Devon-based wedding photographer I also travel across the UK and am also available for destination weddings abroad. For details please see my destination package prices on the 'Weddings' page.
Are you insured?
Yes indeed! I am fully insured for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity.
What happens if you are unwell on the day?
My wedding kit contains Lemsip, tissues and plasters in case of emergencies! But should I, for example, break my leg and be unable to physically cover your wedding I have access to a network of wedding photographers that provide coverage in a similar style and are able to offer stand in support in the unlikely event that an emergency were to occur.
Can my guests take pictures too?
Certainly! The most important thing I like to stress about my wedding coverage is that this is your day, I am there to document it, all of it; the guests taking photographs, sneaky selfies, you name it! I’m there to record your day as it happens and don’t have any ‘rules’ for what guests can and can’t do.
It is completely up to you to decide if you would like your guests to take pictures during the ceremony or reception, but I would advise to have an 'unplugged' ceremony so that your family and friends can truly be there with you, and it also allows me to capture every magical moment in the ceremony without having any phones, cameras or tablets in the photos.
Can I see a full set of wedding photographs?
Yes! Always ask to view some full wedding albums. Our ‘hero’ images are often what we feel are most representative of the best of our work and it is always a great idea to have a look through at least one full album to ensure that level of consistency and attention of detail to documenting all those details of your wedding story is applied throughout the day. Although there are too many photographs within each set to include full sets on my website please do not hesitate to get in contact with me to request to view a full album. In the meantime, my blog page is where I post weddings in far more detail giving you a really good idea of how and what I will capture during your wedding day, from the tiniest details to those big emotional moments that seem to pass in a shot.
Can I get all the RAW files / unedited jpegs from my wedding?
Personally, I don't send out the RAW or unedited files to my couples after the wedding day. The RAW files can look so different to the finished image, and us as photographers spend so much time refining and perfecting each image to create a stunning gallery for you to cherish and look back on. I do keep my RAW files from each wedding, so if in the future you did come back and were wondering if there was a specific photo of or more photos of something, I can always have a look back through the files, but no RAW files will be shared.
