I've been a full-time wedding photographer since 2014 and have had the pleasure of shooting hundreds of weddings in that time!
I'm based in Chester, Cheshire, in the North West of England but I cover weddings across the whole of the UK and beyond.
Yes, I use two cameras on the day and bring plenty of lenses. Any photographer who takes their craft seriously should always carry sufficient back-up equipment.
Yes, I've worked with some wonderful suppliers over the years and I'm more than happy to offer recommendations to my couples if required.
At some point during your drinks reception, we'll take a little walk away from the crowd and spend a short time (20 mins or so) capturing some natural and relaxed couple shots. I am of course more than happy to offer a spot of direction here, but it'll be nothing cheesy or forced though, don't worry!
Formal group shot images are totally optional but yes, I am happy to take these if required. You may send me a list of up to 6 group combinations before the wedding day. This will be your "priority" list of groups and if more are required on the day, this may be possible, time permitting.
As a wedding is a long and often non-stop working day for me, the offer of a vegetarian meal and soft drink served in a separate room to your wedding breakfast would be hugely appreciated, thanks so much!
Each one of your wedding photos will be individually edited in my signature style and I work as hard as I can to make sure that your photos are ready as soon as possible without ever compromising on the quality. During my busiest times, please allow up to 8 weeks for digital delivery.
Please complete the form on my contact page and I will be sure to get back to you ASAP. To secure a date, I request a booking fee of £400. This booking fee amount is taken off your final balance, which must be settled no later than 8 weeks prior to the wedding date please.
This isn't essential but I do understand if you'd like to meet up before committing to a booking. Meetings will take place in Chester, on weekdays or weekday evenings only. Please note that due to the amount of weddings that I shoot, I'm unable to offer weekend meetings.
Most couples tend to book their photographer 1-2 years in advance of their wedding day, however, if your wedding is sooner, please do drop me an email to check availability ASAP.
Yes, I have both professional indemnity and public liability insurance.
