Wedding photography is an investment just as much as it's a commitment. It's not something to be taken lightly. It's a trust between you and your photographer.I'm here to not only narrate your love story, but to forge a relationship, a bond, that creates an atmosphere of trust and comfort. Therefore I have the mentality of "Sell to people how you would like to be sold to." This means there is no up-selling my package. This is why my pricing is simple, transparent and honest.

From the moment you first get in touch with me I start to lay the foundations of a new friendship. Getting to know you in the early stages of our journey together is key to getting great images later. It allows you to be yourself around me.
After we get to know each other, and have had a great time on your pre-wedding session. It's time to capture the wedding. My approach to this is to capture it as if I were a guest.
I start early in the day to get to know the important people on your wedding day. I won't usually get my camera out until I've had a chance to chat to everyone, and have a coffee!
I treat every single image from your wedding as a piece of art. Making every single image from your wedding consistent with the style I shoot. After all you booked me based on my previous work.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WEDDINGS FULL-TIME?
Yes. I went full-time in January 2016. Going full-time allows me to concentrate solely on my couples and building a great relationship/friendship. It also allows me to stay on top of boring things like admin.
DO YOU WORK OUTSIDE LINCOLNSHIRE?
The short answer is “Yes I do!” In fact I work nationally, I’ve been as far north as Edinburgh, and as far south as Kent. I also work internationally. There is literally nowhere I wouldn't go to capture true love!
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes I do. I have full public liability and professional indemnity insurance. My equipment is also insured on location.
DO YOU DO GROUP SHOTS?
To be honest I don’t really like doing them (controversial I know!) but I know parents want them. I’m not into the whole standing there like a mannequin, stiff and expressionless. I much prefer capturing groups enjoying themselves. If you want them I’ll do them, but limit it to important family members. And remember, it’s your day not theirs.
DO YOU CARRY BACK UP EQUIPMENT?
I carry two camera bodies and lenses with me to every wedding. In addition to this I have a shit-ton of memory cards.
CAN WE MEET YOU BEFORE WE BOOK YOU?
Absolutely. I always love meeting new people and it’s a great way to get to know each other. I always implore people to meet with your photographer before you book anything. It’s not just about liking your photographer’s work, you also need to like your photographer as a person. We won’t just meet the once before the wedding either. If you ever need to have a chat about your day, I’m always there. After all I like to think that after the wedding I’ve gained some new friends!
WHO DO YOU CONSIDER A GOOD FIT?
Couples who are truly, madly, deeply in love is a must. Anyone who is up for an adventure, and couples who I can call a friend even after the event. It's great creating new friendships, and these relationships allow me to get emotionally invested, which in turn create sincere images!
HOW DO WE BOOK, AND HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT?
The deposit is £100 non refundable. This cost is used to secure your chosen date. I can’t under any circumstance secure a date without a deposit.
WHEN DO WE NEED TO PAY?
I ask that the full amount be paid four weeks prior to the wedding.
WHAT DO YOU WEAR TO OUR WEDDING?
I wear a scruffy t-shirt with ripped jeans and flip flops. Seriously though, I wear what any guest to a wedding would wear. I want to blend in after all.
WHEN DO WE GET OUR PHOTOS?
I take the utmost care in editing your wedding images, and I like to make sure they are 100% perfect before sending them out to you. So this time frame varies. It depends how busy I am around the time of your wedding, but I would say 6-8 weeks during busy times. For off peak weddings it can be anywhere around 3-4 weeks.
DO YOU DO DESTINATION WEDDINGS AND ELOPEMENTS?
Yes. I would love to capture your wedding abroad. Or if you’re planning on eloping to the middle of nowhere, I can be there. Destination weddings are usually my full day package, plus expenses such as flights and accommodation. I know this may sound expensive but you are getting my undivided attention for a whole week. I’m there with you every step of the way. I can do a pre-wedding shoot at home and when we touchdown in your chosen destination. If you’ve planned an excursion, I can be there to capture it. I can also capture family sessions for your guests while I’m there.
I DON’T LIVE NEAR YOU, HOW CAN WE CHAT?
Through the wonders of the internet. I have access to Skype and FaceTime. We can arrange to have a chat anytime, anywhere. If you live outside the UK and would like to chat I’m more than happy to wait for an appropriate time for you taking time differences into consideration.
