WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I am based in Basildon, but I am available for weddings all over Essex, Greater London, and beyond. Travel within 50 miles is included; if your wedding is further than that I’ll charge extra for travel expenses.
DO YOU YOU HAVE AN ASSISTANT?
Normally I work alone, but if you request a second shooter I can arrange that for you. I will be the ‘lead photographer’.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS?
I have been shooting weddings since 1999. I am fully insured and come prepared with backup equipment, extra batteries and spare memory cards.
DO YOU STILL DO THE TRADITIONAL GROUP SHOTS?
I am happy to do a few traditional groups, this will take 20 – 30 minutes depending on the size of the groups.
CAN WE PRINT FROM OUR GALLERY?
Yes, please do! The only limitation I place on the images is that they are not to be used for commercial purposes without my consent (you can’t sell them), and if you’re sending them on to your hairdresser/magazines, just let me know. The images are full-sized and don’t have my logo or anything else over them, so you’re good to go!
HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE WE CAN SEE OUR PICTURES?
All of your images will usually be online within 3 weeks, but there will be a sneak preview on my blog about a week after the wedding.
CAN MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY BUY PICTURES?
Yes, you will have an online gallery with a password which you can give out to your friends and family.
DO YOU REQUIRE A MEAL AT OUR RECEPTION?
No, I am quite happy to bring my own food and sneak off at the ideal times. It’s really lovely when I am asked to join you for dinner, but honestly, that’s the time I like to have a cup of tea and back up your precious images.
HOW MUCH IS THE DEPOSIT?
Once the 1/4 booking fee and a signed copy of the contract have been received I’m completely yours for the day, with the remaining balance due 14 days prior to the wedding.
DO YOU SHOOT DIGITAL OR FILM
I used to shoot film, but now I shoot digital.
I DON’T LIVE NEAR YOU, CAN WE SKYPE?
Yes! Although it’s a bit nerve-wracking chatting over the net, it’s a great alternative if you live in Bucharest!
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use Canon DSLRs (mainly 5D MkIIIs), and a range of L lenses (including 16-35 mm 2.8, 24-70 mm 2.8, 700-200 mm 2.8)
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes, I am covered for Professional Indemnity and Public Liability.
DID YOU STUDY PHOTOGRAPHY AT UNI?
No, I am a self-taught photography geek.
DO YOU VIDEO WEDDINGS TOO?
Yes, we do. We could include it in the Wedding Photography package as an add-on – We call it Fusion or we can dedicate our full resources to produce the best cinematic wedding film possible. We’ve been filming weddings in Europe, Caribean Islands, and the United States and looking forward to filming your wedding next.
DO YOU SHOOT AERIAL IMAGES AND VIDEOS?
At this stage, we don’t have any experience with aerial photography/videography to offer as a service. If you’re looking for an aerial photographer/videographer, check out our friends over at RMC AV LTD.
