Pricing & wedding photography FAQ
I mainly cover weddings in London and Surrey, but will happily cover many areas nationwide. I specialise in modern and heartfelt wedding photography and love working with chilled out, fun couples who just want to enjoy their wedding and have an amazing day.
You'll have all your absolute favourite people around on your wedding day. The people you love the most. You want your photos to capture all the genuine moments of fun, laughter, craziness and emotion. You, your friends and family at your absolute best. You want informal, documentary photography to capture those amazing memories for you and that's where I can help.

With me as your wedding photographer, you won't have someone barking instructions at you or putting you into awkward poses that just don't feel natural. I want to capture the real you, your relationship as it truly is, and those genuine moments of love and laughter on your wedding day.
My package prices range between £1,550 and £2,100 depending on how long you would like me at your wedding.

your questions answered
HOW IS YOUR DAY USUALLY STRUCTURED?
Well, it depends on which package you pick as to how my day would be structured. I would usually start the day with the bride and bridesmaids as they are getting ready. If I have a second shooter then they would be with the groom. I would then cover the whole day (with a short break while you all eat!) ideally until about half an hour after the first dance. Depending on which package you have booked I may stay a bit later, and you have the option to add hours onto your package if you want more of the dancing and party-time documented.
DO YOU DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
Ooooh, yes! I love to travel so I would love the opportunity to shoot abroad more often. If you are thinking of travelling abroad for your wedding please contact me for a bespoke quote. Exciting!
CAN WE EDIT OUR PHOTOS?
I spend a lot of time editing your photos to make them look beautiful. Hopefully if you are going to book me as your wedding photographer then you like my style of editing! If you edit them yourself it means that it is no longer my own work and infringes on my copyright. So, please don't edit the photos with a horrible FB/Instagram yellow filter. Pretty please!
CAN WE SHARE OUR PHOTOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
Yes please do! I include low resolution versions on your USB for this very reason. I would love it if you would tag me or link to my website when you share your photos. :)
CAN YOU STAY UNTIL THE BITTER END?
Yes of course! I love staying until the end, that's when the most fun happens! You can add hours on to any of my packages, so please contact me for more details.
DO YOU DO WEDDING ALBUMS?
I do indeed. The albums I supply are called Fine Art Albums and they are beautiful and handmade in the UK. There are many personalisation options and a variety of cover materials and colours. Please contact me for more information on my albums.
CAN WE PRINT OUR PHOTOS?
Yes you can! Depending on which package you pick you may have some prints included in the price. You can also order prints directly through your online gallery. Finally, if you want to get your photos printed elsewhere you can download the high resolution digital files (or use the ones on your USB) and give them to the printers of your choice.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE ILL ON THE DAY?
I am very careful with regards to my health, so luckily I don't get ill too often! Just to reassure you, I would have to be extremely unwell or injured to have to miss your wedding. However, if I really was unable to do it then I would do my very best to find a suitable replacement. I have several photographer friends and I'm a member of a few online networks so it's likely I would be able to find someone awesome to step in and shoot your wedding. If it ended up that there was absolutely no one who could do it then you would get all your money back.
WHAT KIND OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU?
I describe my photography style as natural, creative and contemporary. I'm quite unobtrusive in my shooting style, so I don't tend to interfere too much. I want you to be relaxed and enjoy your day so I try to encourage that in everything I do.
WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
I set a deadline of 6 weeks for your photos to cover myself in case it's a really busy time. However, it is often quite a lot quicker than that. If it ever looks like it's going to be longer then I will keep you fully informed of when you can expect them.
DO YOU DO PRE-WEDDING SHOOTS/ENGAGEMENT SHOOTS?
Absolutely! I really recommend them and think they are a great idea. It means you get to know me a bit better and make sure you are comfortable with me ahead of the day. It also means you get a bit of practice in front of the camera. You will realise that it only feels weird for the first couple of minutes, after that you will be used to it and much more relaxed. You might even enjoy it and start posing like a rock star! But even if you don't go that far, at least you will know what to expect on the big day.
Some people even use the photos from their pre-wedding shoot for their Save the Dates or Invitations!
Pre-wedding shoots can be booked for the price of £350. They can be anywhere within Surrey or London. It's likely that the pre-wedding shoot will need to be on a weekday and will usually last around 1.5 hours. Perhaps plan something fun for afterwards and make a day of it?!
CAN WE HAVE THE RAW FILES?
No, I don't give out the RAW files. You are paying for me to take the photos and edit them into a beautiful final product, so I do that and send you the Jpegs.
