Do you offer bespoke packages?

Absolutely, the packages above are meant to be a guide to my services and bespoke packages can be arranged to suit the individual needs of the couple.  Midweek and off-season discounts might be available, contact me to arrange a bespoke package.

 

Is tax included?

Yes. The price quoted is the total cost and there are no hidden fees or costs.

 

Is travel included?  Travel is included in all my wedding packages in Oxfordshire or central London. Travel outside those areas will incur a small fee to cover my expenses, and is determined on a  case-by-case basis depending on the distance and potential hotel and flight expenses.

 

Do you photograph destination weddings?

I would be thrilled to photograph your destination wedding! Contact me with the specifics of your wedding and what you need, and I will give you a quote.

 

Do you have liability insurance?

Yes, I am fully insured.

 

How long after the wedding can I expect to receive my photos?

Delivery times can vary depending on the time of year, but 4-6 weeks is the standard. Of course I always do my best to deliver your photos to you as soon as possible.

 

Do you offer albums? What kind?

It is my view that your wedding photographs are best preserved with a custom made album.  My parents wedding album is one of my most beloved possessions, and I still look at the photographs often.  I’ve chosen Queensberry Albums as my preferred album supplier- they make the finest handmade albums available. 

I will custom design your wedding album for you using a selection of your best images.

What kind of equipment and lighting do you have?

I use top of the line professional Canon and lenses and shoot on the highest-resolution settings.  My kit includes two Canon 5D Mark III professional camera bodies, several L series lenses, flash lighting, professional studio lighting kit and high end Mac computers with all the latest editing software.

Do you shoot black and white and color?

Since I shoot 100% digital, I shoot everything in color and transfer images to black and white in post-production. This gives me enormous creative freedom, because any image you like in color can be transferred to black and white and vice versa.

Do you photograph formals or group shots?

Unless you request otherwise, I will do a short family portrait session to ensure you have a record of your family gathered together on your wedding day. 

I also schedule a creative shoot between you and your new spouse, usually before the wedding breakfast.

Can I make my own prints from the digital negatives? You own your digital negatives, so you’re free to make reprints from your USB of high-resolution files any place you choose.  I would suggest that you take the images to a professional lab to maintain the highest quality.  Or you can order prints directly from your online gallery.

Great, how do we book you?

If you live in or around Oxford, we can meet and have an informal chat while looking at sample albums and galleries.  Otherwise, I am available by phone or Skype to discuss your wedding.  I will provide you with a booking form that explains all of my policies and details photography.  A non-refundable £300 retainer fee is required at the time of booking to secure your date and will be applied toward your balance.  I accept cheques and bank transfer.

I look forward to meeting you!
