Frequently Asked Questions


I work on a first come, first serve basis, once the deposit is paid and your contract signed, your wedding date is firmly secured. A booking fee of £300 takes your date off my availability list. As soon as this is received, your booking is confirmed and I’ll send you an invoice and receipt for your non-refundable deposit. Full payment is required no later than one month before your wedding.

How do we book you and how much is the Booking Fee?

Sorry, but I can’t. To be fair to everyone, and due to the volume of enquiries I receive, a date is only reserved on receipt of a completed booking form, contract and booking fee.

Can you hold a date for me without the Booking Fee?

I live in Durham in the North East, and my work takes me all over the country and further afield.

Where are you based and where do you travel?

I average around 500 images per wedding, individually edited and polished by yours truly.

How many photos can I expect to receive?

Of course you can, I encourage it. I always grant my clients full personal use with their supplied images. High resolution with no watermarks. I always encourage you make a back up of your images as USB's do not last forever.

Can I print images from my online gallery?

Yes. It’s important you have a photographic record of your family and the people that are important to you. However, I strongly suggest you limit your choices to no more than around 8 choices. These images will be quick, fun, and as informal as they can be.

Will you take any formal group photos?

All my couples say this!  Most people book me for my relaxed approach, and I always make it fun!  I have the skills to create amazing photographs without you even knowing! This means I won't be forcing you into cheesy poses!

We hate having our photos taken!

My pricing includes travel up to a 50 mile radius of Durham. For weddings further afield, a small fuel charge is added, and if an overnight stay is required, I will find a cheap and cheerful hotel nearby and this will be added to the final cost.

Are there any additional costs?

No, I retain the Copyright, but you get Printing Rights. This means that every photo I deliver will be yours to download, save, share and print. There are no hidden extra costs for photos. You are welcome to order prints and products from the Store attached to your Gallery, or order your own separately.

Do we get copyright?

I would describe it as unobtrusive, relaxed and fun! It can sometimes be called documentary photography. I am laid-back and friendly.  I'm really passionate about allowing your day to flow smoothly.  You'll probably not notice me for the majority of your day.  My couples often say they can't believe how I've managed to capture so many moments they had missed.

What is your shooting style?

Yes. I have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance.

Are you insured?

I'll upload all of your edited images onto a private password protected Gallery, you'll be able to download, print and share to your hearts content. There's also a Store attached to the Gallery for you and your friends and family to order prints and products.

How do we receive the images?
