Frequently Asked Questions – How do you work?

How much time do I need for photography?


As a photographer, the more time I have to photograph your day, the better! Something to bear in mind when planning the day is that phrase “where did the time go?” and in my experience, it tends to be all the little things. For example – Ceremony 2:00pm to 2:30pm followed by Group Photos [...]

How long do you stay for?


Most full day weddings are up to 8-10 hours; and that is generally more than enough time to capture most weddings. From the getting ready up to and including the first dance regardless of any slight time slippages. We would discuss this during your consultation to ensure you get the right cover for your [...]

What if it rains (or other things go wrong)?


Improvise adapt and overcome! Seriously though I’ve experienced some very ‘wet’ weddings before; and I’m generally prepared to deal with most situations; and we can discuss contingency in your plans.

What’s a pre-wedding shoot?


A pre-wedding is just a 20 to 30, minute practice session where I go through the ‘routine’ and provide tips for getting those natural shots and is normally part of the final meeting before the wedding to go over the wedding plan. Not everyone is natural in front of the camera so this is [...]

Do you work alone at weddings?


While I’m more than confident to work alone and often do, I however, do recommend; and regularly use an experienced second photographer or assistant to add variety to your photographs as well as contingency; and if there is a specific requirement that needs covering or you have a lot of guests. This would be [...]

What’s your style of wedding photography?


My style sits somewhere between Photo-journalistic/Documentary style and contemporary ‘posed’ styles. Primarily I’m there to capture the story of your wedding, unobtrusively and capturing real moments in as natural way as possible. At the same time, I will include some naturally looking posed shots for a more contemporary feel. Don’t forget to look at [...]
