WHO ARE YOU?
You are fun, happy and creative. You LOVE to laugh and want to share these memories with your favourite people. You don’t want to be told what to do or line up for hours for endless group shots. You are laid back, down to earth and want a relaxed, stress-free party with a wedding somewhere in the middle!
You love the outdoors and won’t let a little bit of rain stop you in your tracks. You’d choose pumps or sandals over heels and amazing memories over “things”. You love to travel and want a passport full of stamps.
You don’t mind that your hair’s a little bit messy in the wind or that your dress is getting caught in the leaves. You love animals and would do anything to have your furry babies with you. You don’t take life too seriously.
You’d love a wedding photographer who will be more like your best friend and less like a supplier. If this sounds like you, I would love to meet you!
HOW DO I WORK?
Many of my couples tell me they hate having their photo taken and that’s okay, I do too! It turns out I have a knack for getting people to relax and feel more comfortable in front of the camera, so you can be sure there’s no Chandler Bing grins! My style of photography is very much relaxed and laid back – absolutely no cheesy or awkward posing! I always find myself getting super immersed into every wedding, so when you’re balling your eyes out during the ceremony, there’s a big chance I am too! I just can’t help it!
I’M MORE THAN JUST A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Whilst I am a wedding photographer, I also double up as a planner and a helper-outer! If you’re running a tad late and need help with your dress – I’m pretty good at fastening buttons! Need a tissue? I’ll run and grab you some… after taking a photo! I actually love finding out about details you have planned in the lead up to your wedding, so feel free to bombard me with information such as which flowers you’ve picked and where you’re going on your honeymoon. Did I mention I love to travel?
If you’re sat there thinking ‘this all sounds perfect’, get in touch! I actually do a happy dance every time an enquiry comes through! 😀
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL WE RECEIVE?
From a full day package I deliver a minimum of 450 images, but more often than not it’s more than this! 🙂
HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE WE RECEIVE THE IMAGES BACK?
I know how excited you are to see your wedding images, so I’m proud to offer a quick turnaround on images of just 4 – 6 weeks! I also love posting a couple of images on social media during this time! 🙂
ARE YOU INSURED AND DO YOU HAVE BACKUP EQUIPMENT?
Yes and yes! I have public liability and professional indemnity insurance and wouldn’t leave the house without it! I also have backup cameras, lenses, memory cards, flashes and batteries should anything fail on me!
CAN WE CHOOSE THE IMAGES FOR OUR ALBUM?
Yes of course! Just click “favourite” on the images you would like from your online gallery and I will do the rest! You will always see a copy of the finished album before it goes to print!
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU'RE ILL ON THE DAY?
I will get out of bed and do my very best to tell your story!
Okay.. so if I’m REALLY ill, I’ll contact the many photographers I know to cover for me, finishing off the rest of the work myself when I am better. I will make sure I choose someone who works in a similar way to me and who can provide you with what you have paid for. Luckily this has never happened, yet!
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
I am so excited you’ve asked! Firstly, please contact me to find out if your date is available. If it is, bookings are taken via email, or as an alternative I’m happy to meet couples in Huddersfield or over Skype. A £400 non-refundable deposit and a read of the t&c’s are required to secure your date. I look forward to hearing from you!
