Wedding photography FAQ’s

Yorkshire Wedding Photographer? – do you only work within that area?

I am a documentary wedding photographer based in Yorkshire. I live in Whitby on the Yorkshire coast, but do travel up and down the UK if you would like me to photograph your wedding. Additional costs will apply (sorry, but I have to charge for overnight stays on long distance).

How would you describe your wedding photography style?

I’m am mainly documentary wedding photographer (also referred to as journalistic) 80-90% of the day is photographed as it happens. I capture things as they happen, the laughs, special moments, and the evening reception dancefloor. I create you a storybook of images that you can view to relive your wedding day.

If you would like portraits, we can choose a time in the day to create them without too much interruption to your celebrations.

What is a Documentary Wedding Photographer?

Reporatge style wedding photography or documentry, journalistic photography is unstaged photographs that are taken as events happen. This helps create a story book in pictures of your day, as it happens.

Do you provide wedding video?

If you want video, I have a preferred supplier who can come along at an additional cost. Contact me for more information.

We would like a 2nd photographer; can you provide one?

Yes! I can guide you if I think a 2nd shooter is required. No need to add extra cost if it is not needed.

Most weddings only need one photographer, but on occasion it is recommended to have two. Larger weddings or if you require some extra special portrait images can benefit with an extra pair of hands. A second photographer can be added for £500

Do you do group shots?

As I am a documentary wedding photographer all your guests will be photographed at some point in the day. This mostly rues out the need the cheesy line ups. Endless line up photographs can look a bit stale and uninteresting so when group shots are needed, I create something a bit more exciting.

I would recommend keeping them to a minimum, so that it does not eat into your celebrations.

What if you have not photographed at my venue before?

If I cannot visit your venue before your wedding day, I will arrive a little earlier to familiarise myself. I also check out your venue beforehand online too.

Do you photograph all the special elements?

Yes. The rings, cars, wedding attire, cake, decorations, the venue, the list goes on. Let me know of any elements that are on your must have list beforehand.

How many images do we receive?

On a full day’s wedding photography, you will receive approximately 500 images. I do take many more but spend the time picking the best images and retouch any where needed. They will be delivered to you via a secure digital download. You will be able to share with friends and family, on social media and download the files to make prints, books and framed wall art. You will have the rights to print as many as you wish.

Can you provide wedding albums?

Yes, of course. I use a high-quality album supplier in Italy. I can design your album for you from your choice of images. Please ask about the options.

I can also prove high quality professional prints and framed pictures.

Are you insured?

Yes, I am fully insured.

If I wish book you, what happens next? Just get in touch so we can arrange a video call, you can let me know all about your wedding day plans and what you want from your photography. If I am still a good fit for your day, I ask you to make a booking deposit of £300 to secure your day. The rest is payable 28 days before your wedding
