For those of you setting your Wedding dates for 2023 Please book in sooner rather than later.
I have already taken bookings right through to the end of next year and also through to June 2024.
You can book by the hour, from Bride Prep to as late as you need me to be there.
Whether you are having a church wedding or a country hotel wedding, once you have booked your date with your venue, you should book in your photographer too - we get booked up early :-)
If you have any questions about what happens, what you get, how long you will wait for your photos, just ask, but most importantly as soon as you have your date why not phone for a chat about your wedding.
Questions to ask your photographer should include;
1. How many weddings have you previously photographed ? and How long have you been a wedding photographer ?
The reason is - if you are one of their first - or their first wedding then they will not understand how a wedding day flows, and they will not know what happens when and how important is it to be in the right place at the right place for when certain things are going to happen.
2. Do they have insurance - public liability insurance ?
A venue does not have to let e photographer work at their venue if they do not have public liability insurance - and it's amazing how many don't bother.....
3.How many cameras and lenses do they carry?
If a camera or lens breaks as the bride is walking back down the aisle or as they are about to kiss for the first time as man and wife - what then - i have spare everything in my bag around my shoulder - it's all turned on and ready to go - so when I had a lens break as a bride was walking down the aisle - I picked up my other camera and carried in like nothing had happened - she had no idea....
4. Can you see a portfolio of their work ?
If not why not? How many weddings have they really done?
5. What does the price actually include ?
Is it prints, a memory stick - a mixture? are images limited or do you get everything?
These are just a few questions that you should be asking, but even if these are the only ones you ask - make sure you do - and make sure that you are completely happy with your photographer before you book them - as they will be spending your wedding day with you.

If you would like to have a chat about your day or see some more of my work - or see a whole wedding in photos from start to finish - or several hundred :-) then please give me a call and remember that whatever questions you have that none of them are stupid or silly - I shoot weddings most weeks and I see and experience a lot - you may have been to friends weddings, but getting married yourself is very different so please don't worry about asking me any questions at all.
