  • Where are you based and what areas do you cover?
    We are based in Maidstone, Kent and are available for weddings in Kent, London as well as the rest of the UK.
  • Do you charge travel/accomodation fee?
    There is no travel/accommodation fee for wedding within 1.5 hours travel from Maidstone. For weddings further away, we will add a travel and accommodation fee - get in touch to discuss this for your specific needs.
  • How far in advance should we book you?
    It's best to book your wedding photographer as soon as you have your date and venue secured. Popular dates tend to get booked up quickly, especially during peak wedding seasons, so it's wise to secure your date with us early to ensure availability.
  • Do you offer engagement photo sessions?
    Yes, I offer engagement photo sessions as part of my wedding photography services. Engagement sessions are a great opportunity for us to get to know each other better, and for you to become comfortable in front of the camera before your big day.
  • What is your photography style?
    My photography style is natural, documentary and romantic. I strive to capture genuine moments and emotions in a natural and unobtrusive way, ensuring that your wedding photos reflect the true essence of your day.
  • How many hours of coverage do you provide on the wedding day?
    I offer customisable wedding photography packages tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Coverage typically starts from bridal prep and finishes about 30 minutes after the first dance, which is usually 8 hours. There is also an option to add additional hours if needed.
  • Is it worth adding a second shooter?
    If you're planning on having more than 50 guests and your budget allows, I would suggest that having a second photographer is a great idea. Having a second shooter allows us to capture multiple angles and perspectives, providing you with a more diverse and complete collection of images - from having both of your mornings captured to having your ceremony photographed from different angles.
  • How long after the wedding will we receive our photos?
    The turnaround time for receiving your wedding photos depends on the time of your wedding. Peak wedding season typically takes a little longer, but not longer than around 12 weeks. We also send you sneak peeks within 24-48hours of your wedding. There is also an option to add express editing service and we can return your photos sooner.
  • What happens if it rains on our wedding day?
    As a seasoned wedding photographer, I'm experienced in adapting to various weather conditions. In the event of rain, I'll work with you to create alternative plans and find creative ways to capture beautiful photos indoors or under cover and if you're up for it, we can always brave the rain for some super romantic shots.
  • Do you have backup equipment?
    Yes, I always bring backup camera gear and equipment to ensure that I can continue shooting seamlessly in case of any technical issues or malfunctions.
  • Can we schedule a meeting or consultation before booking?
    Absolutely! I offer complimentary consultations via phone or video call to discuss your wedding plans, vision, and photography needs. This gives us the opportunity to get to know each other better and ensure that we're the perfect fit.
  • Do you require a deposit to secure our wedding date?
    Yes, I require a 20% booking fee along with a signed contract to secure your wedding date. This deposit is non-refundable and goes towards reserving my services for your special day.
  • What happens if you're unable to photograph our wedding due to unforeseen circumstances?
    In the rare event that I'm unable to photograph your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, such as illness or emergency, I have a network of trusted colleagues who can step in as a replacement. Rest assured, your wedding day will be covered no matter what.
