How long will you be there on our wedding day?
As long as you want me! Plenty of photographers have fixed time limits on the weddings they shoot, but that doesn’t make sense to me; it’s not the full story of your day. I’ll stay as long as you want me to be there – from beginning to end, no limits.
What are you like when you're shooting a wedding?
The most common question I’m asked by guests on a wedding day is ‘So, how long have you known these two?’ That’s because I’m basically like an extra guest with added cameras. I also have a solid track record of soothing frayed nerves and producing sewing kits if buttons pop off. Mostly, I’m just having a great time doing the best job in the world and taking amazing photos for you!
Do you shoot weddings outside of the UK?
All the time. My packages are exactly the same – all you need to do is cover my travel and accommodation. I hold dual UK/EU citizenship so am able to work in EU countries.
What happens to our photos after the wedding?
As soon as the morning after I’m already at work on editing selected highlights of your wedding day to be ready within 48 hours. After that, I start work on the rest. You can find plenty of examples of highlights over on my Instagram!
How many photos do we get?
It varies from wedding to wedding, but typically in the region of five to six hundred. The important thing to mention is that every photo is delivered as part of a carefully curated story of your day – each photo tells a new part of that story, and is carefully selected and edited to take you right back to when it all happened. (Don’t worry, I definitely won’t be sending you photos of your flowers from 50 different angles. You’ll only get the very best.)
What's your photography style?
Creative, informal, colourful and completely uninterested in whatever is currently trending on Instagram. These are photographs for a lifetime, not a timeline.
So we popped the champers, watched, cried, rewatched, went through every photo, twice, tried to create a favourites list, far too many to favourite so gave up, now want to show everyone! You have an unbelievable talent at capturing personality and emotion, it’s like reliving it all over again. Nothing was missed. Thank you so much!
We wanted a more natural and creative feel, rather than the generic style of wedding shots, and that’s exactly what we got. Whilst we did want a few staged pics of family etc., the majority were candid moments of emotion, dancing and laughter, which we will treasure forever.
Hire Will, now, otherwise he’ll definitely be booked up. We absolutely love our photos – the fact that it’s been impossible to whittle down to a manageable list of favourites says it all. Alongside his obvious talents (the photos speak for themselves really), Will is brilliant to work with. From our initial conversation, through the engagement shoot, to the big day he was always a pleasure: calm, funny and genuinely excited by his work. He couldn’t have been better throughout.
OH MY GOD WILL, THEY'RE AMAZING! WE'RE BOTH CRYING!!! Thank you so much for everything; we're sat going through them again already. You're so good at what you do, and I'm so freaking glad you exist! You smashed it and I can't stop crying... you're so fucking good!
Oh Will, I don’t know where to start! I keep crying every time I look at them. They are absolutely beautiful. You have given us the memories of a lifetime and we can’t thank you enough. I didn’t realise how much we would treasure the photos of our family as well as all the photos of us. Oh, I’m crying again. Thank you so much, you are incredible at what you do and we feel so lucky that we were able to have you there.
