HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
Firstly, you need to check if I am available. To do so, please send me an email, or give me a call. If you’d like we can arrange a meeting to discuss your wedding requirements and needs, there is no charge for this. Should you wish to book, please complete a booking form sent by myself, and return it with a £250 deposit to secure your date from other potential clients.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes. I have recently moved to Birmingham, however with family in Yorkshire, I am always back and forth and completely available to work anywhere in the UK.
WHERE DO PORTRAIT SHOOTS TAKE PLACE?
Portrait shoots are on location, completely of your choice. I do have a list of my own locations that look good on camera, however whether that be your favourite beach, somewhere special to you, or your local park, it’s always a nice touch to be somewhere that means something, as the photoshoot will capture memories for you as a family.
HOW SOON UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
That is all dependent on the type of shoot. Typically around 14 days maximum for weddings, and 3 working days for headshot sessions.
CAN WE EXTEND COVERAGE ON YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES?
Yes, all of my packages are completely customisable, including the time coverage. Hours can be tailored to you when booking, and can be added on the day if you feel that (as weddings often do) things have run behind, and you’d like additional coverage and for me to stay on.
HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
I will send you an online gallery with all of your beautiful images in them. They will be fully downloadable, and will have a shareable link that you can show your friends and family. You will also have printing rights with your images, should you wish to print them.
HOW WILL YOU MAKE ME FEEL COMFORTABLE ON CAMERA?
My aim is to make the entire session feel less like a shoot, and more like having a bit of fun. I won’t pose you, or get you to smile awkwardly at the camera, I want you to relax and be yourself, and I’ll capture what makes you you.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes I am fully insured with public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
WHERE DO YOU SHOOT HEADSHOTS?
I shoot in the Jewellery Quarter, a ten minute walk or three minute train from the centre of Birmingham. Upon booking, an exact location will be provided. I shoot in a quiet tunelled area that provides beautiful natural light, as well as weather shelter.
WHAT OUTFITS SHALL I WEAR FOR HEADSHOTS?
I will discuss this with you on a more personalised level upon booking based upon casting type, however I always encourage clients to bring a top matching their eye colour to make them pop, as well as different neckline tops such as a roll-neck jumper, a round-neck t-shirt, a jumper and jacket (layers always look very natural), and a v-neck shirt. I always encourage ladies to bring hair ties to add more diversity as well. If you are certain on a casting type look, it does not matter if it is niche - because if it’s YOUR niche, it will get you called in.

IS 60-90 MINUTES ENOUGH?
Yes! As a Wedding photographer as well, I am used to working incredibly efficiently. Your session is not limited to that time frame, however I will have captured your best and most natural shots by then, before you get tired of ‘smizing’’.
