FAQS

1. How far do you travel to photograph weddings?

I photograph weddings all over the UK and Europe. One weekend I will be shooting a wedding in the Houses of Parliament, or St Paul's Cathedral, the next over in Cornwall, then on a flight out to Italy. I've been as far as India & New Zealand to shoot weddings. I go anywhere, but am based in East Sussex.

2. How long do you stay for, what packages do you offer?

I like to keep things simple by only offering one package. Typically, I would come to photograph 2hrs before your ceremony time, to capture the excitement as you get ready, until beyond the first dance, to photograph some of the party atmosphere!

3. How many photographs will we get?

You can expect to receive somewhere around 800 - 1100 finished, edited images in high resolution. Every single image is studied by myself in the editing process, with complete dedication and pride in my work. Where some photographers seem to be offering 'quality, not quantity', I don't see any reason why in this digital age, over a day's shoot you can't receive a LOT of photographs that are also high in quality. Have both!

4. Can we see examples of full weddings please?

Yes! What you can see on the website is not every shot that my clients received – there are too many! Please just ask and I will send you links to some FULL weddings, to give you a better idea.

5. How will we receive the photographs?

You will receive all the finished images on a lovely wooden memory stick, in high-resolution with the rights to print away as you wish. You will also have an online gallery so all your family and friends can view your wonderful photographs! Books and albums are also available – you can either decide before your wedding, or as most people choose to do, we can discuss this afterwards when things have quietened down.

6. Can we meet up set up a Zoom call?

Definitely! Any time – and absolutely zero pressure...happy to chat, and then you can go away and consider your options.

7. We love what you do - what do we do next?

I limit myself to 25 weddings per year, to allow complete dedication to my work. The first thing to do is to get in touch, to check on my availability and to have a chat!

Tom & Rosie

“I’m Hannah the Celebrant who conducted Gemma and Emily’s wedding in Wales. They have just shared the photos with me and they are so beautiful. Honestly, I have to tell you that they are my favourite set of wedding pictures that I have ever seen. Really. You just captured how beautiful the day was & how stunning the girls are - and just the lighting and colours and composition and everything was just so spot on. If I ever get married I am calling you. I don’t normally send emails like this to people, so know that I mean it and that it’s not hyperbole!!”

Hannah, celebrant

"I just wanted to drop you a note on our first anniversary to say just how pleased we are that we found you before our wedding day! We adore every photo you took, how at ease you made everyone feel and just what a great guy you are!"
