FAQ

How many pictures will we receive?

There's no limit to the amount of photographs as I want to feel free to record your day in full without restriction.  After all, there's no second chances at a wedding, I want to ensure your day is fully covered.

Do you do airbrushing/Photoshop?

Yes, unlike many photographers, I'm highly qualified and very skilled in image manipulation.  All the images you receive after your wedding are processed to ensure they look natural and you are able to relive your day in every detail and see everything as it was captured.  Further processing, such as opening eyes, adding confetti, removing tattoos, vignetting, black and white conversions etc. is all available and is usually included in the price of albums, prints and wall art.

I've seen a lovely photograph in my bridal magazine, could you do something similar?

Probably. I love to experiment and try new ideas and I'm completely open to suggestions, in fact it's important that I get to know what you like and don't like. Many wedding photographs used in the media are staged using models, specially constructed sets which wouldn't be practical to set up at a real wedding. Everything you see on this website has been taken at a real wedding.

How far do you travel?

Most weddings are in North Yorkshire and the Tees Valley but I've often travelled to Cumbria, York, Durham, Newcastle and Scotland.  There may be a small charge to cover expenses for traveling more than 40 miles from Northallerton.

What happens if you're ill on our day?

Firstly it would have to be something very serious to prevent me from making it to your wedding.  If such an event occurred I have several backup plans that would help to ensure that your wedding is covered. I'm a member of a local network of other professional wedding photographers that have agreed to cover for each other in an emergency.  I'm also a member of both the British Institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP) and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP).  Both BIPP and the SWPP would help find a replacement.

Are you insured?

Yes, of course! I'm covered for both public liability and professional indemnity. I'd also recommend that you take out wedding insurance, it's inexpensive and maybe a lifeline if something unexpected happens.

What happens if the camera breaks?

Simple. I switch to another one!  As well as several backup cameras, I carry backups for pretty much everything else too.  The cameras I use store images on two memory cards, so even if one fails, there's still a contingency.

Do we get copyright?

Almost but not quite. You will be licensed to use the images pretty much as you wish. I only ask that you do not use them commercially without checking with me first because I'd like to ensure images displayed publicly look their very best.  If you would like me to send any images to your other wedding suppliers or to the local paper, just let me know and I would be happy to arrange this.

How many photographers will come to our wedding?

Usually just me, but I'm able to bring in other qualified photographers if required.  Working alone ensures that I remain unobtrusive and able to capture more natural images as they happen. Assistants, second shooters and their extra equipment are very likely to impede this and could get in the way of the natural flow of your day.  I believe your photographs should tell the story of your day without intrusion.
