Can we chat to you before we book?

Your gallery will be ready within 4 to 6 weeks depending on the time of year. I will always send you a set of up to 10 sneak peek photos within 5 days so you can share the excitement on Social Media
What do your packages include?
I have three standard packages which include a fully digital option and two which include a beautiful hand made album. Every wedding is unique and will I will create a package that means I will be there when you want me, from morning preparations to the fun of the dance floor! I have a range of extras including second photographers and priority delivery. There is also 25% discount on engagement shoots for couples who book their wedding with me.
Tell me about the wedding experience?
My approach is simple relaxed and natural. Weddings and wedding photography are about emotions, moments, and memories. My job is to capture them naturally and spontaneously. For most of your day I will work in a relaxed documentary way. I don't shout instructions, do elaborate set ups or stop everything to get a shot. One my favourite parts of the day is taking a few minutes to take some couple portraits. This is a great time for you to take a few moments focussed on each other to get some beautiful, elegant photos of you together. I am a dancer myself, and I love the energy of the dance floor. I will stay and catch some of the evening's fun.
Will you edit our photos?
Your wedding collection will be carefully selected and edited. to create my signature classic meets contemporary style. I edit using Photoshop and Lightroom.
How do we book you for our wedding?
Just get in touch! I will send you a simple booking form. There is a 25% deposit to secure your date and the balance is due four weeks before your wedding day.
What happens after we book?
Once you have signed the agreement and paid the deposit the date is yours! I will send you a questionnaire and checklist which helps me plan, keep organised and work out the “must have” shots. After that we will arrange a pre-wedding consultation where we will talk everything through
