FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS {II}

CONTACT ME ABOUT YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Intimate London wedding photographer

I'm really thrilled that you've had a chance to have a good look through my portfolio and are considering taking things one step closer. No doubt by now you will have the measure of me and how I work.

Hopefully you will have realised by now that I am more than just a guy with a camera. I have photographed almost five hundred weddings for couples over a career spanning more than ten years. I bring to the table a huge amount of practical experience and wise words to ensure your big day goes as smoothly as is humanly possible.

Based in Wimbledon, UK

The form above is an opportunity for you to get in contact about your potential wedding pictures. Please feel free to ask questions about any and all aspects of my service. Feel free to discuss with me as little or as much as you would like to or if you would prefer, we can schedule a phone call.

My ideology from the very beginning of starting this business in 2009 has been to ensure the booking process is as effortless and pain free as I can. If you feel all set and ready to progress things further, I would love to hear from you.

I AM NOT GOOD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. HOW WILL THIS AFFECT MY WEDDING PHOTOS?

Documentary wedding photography

This is a legitimate question which I hear a lot. Personally, I can't think of anything worse than being in front of the camera. Though, from the very beginning, my approach to wedding photography has been centred around this idea of getting the best out of people with as little interference as possible and that includes you both; the bride and groom.

However, before I properly answer the question, I just want to address what preconceptions you might have of how a wedding photographer might behave or look. Because, there's a very good chance that I won't look anything like that. I always wear a suit with a shirt and for all intents and purposes, I will look like any one of your guests.

Discreet wedding photographer

To add to my anonymity, my two cameras are concealed under my suit jacket. My cameras are small and I never use tripods or big showboat lights. My Canon cameras and lenses are small, discreet but very powerful. The idea being that I blend in and move amongst your guests with the minimum of fuss.

Candid wedding pictures

My photography is candid and very much documentary style which means no awkward posing and nothing outside of your comfort zone.

The most important thing (I think) is that you both have an incredible day, relax and enjoy yourselves. It won't be long before you will have forgotten that I am there, documenting everything from the shadows. Honestly and truly, it sounds glib but so many couples tell me that their guests had commented that "we didn't realise you had a wedding photographer because we didn't see him".

HOW MANY WEDDINGS DO YOU NORMALLY PHOTOGRAPH IN A YEAR?

DO YOU TRAVEL?

WILL YOU NEED TO DO A SITE VISIT BEFOREHAND?

The good news is that there is no need for me to see the venue prior to the big day. On the morning of the wedding day itself, i arrive early to do a full recce of the venue to scout out the best locations.

I photograph a maximum of thirty weddings in any given year. This means that I am able to give clients my undivided attention in the run up to the wedding as well on the big day itself.

Since 2009 the majority of my wedding work has been within luxury London venues. When I'm not shooting in London, I travel to far flung corners of the UK or Europe, particularly France.

WHICH TYPES OF WEDDING HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED?

WE DO NOT LOOK ANYTHING LIKE THE COUPLES YOU HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED

With close to 500 weddings and twelve years experience shooting ceremonies of all descriptions across Europe, I have witnessed a vast and rich tapestry of nuptials from a multiplicity of different cultures. I have witnessed Jewish weddings, Chinese, French, Hindu, Greek, Ghanaian, Persian, Muslim, American, Lebanese, Nigerian and Italian to name a few. Each country and culture has its own traditions and I will always learn the essential elements of each and every ceremony beforehand.

For more than a decade, storytelling has been at the very heart of my work. Telling stories always in pictures has and always will be incredibly important to me. The question above does come up from time to time, though to be absolutely honest with you, from the very bottom of my heart, I'm not remotely interested in how my couples look. What interests me more is their story. How the couple connect and then painting a picture of them both on their most important day with absolute love and integrity.

The couples who I work with are the headline stars of their very own glamorous fairy-tale for the day or weekend. Like all newlyweds, they are both suited and booted, looking incredible, ready to celebrate their love for each other.

Further, the way you will see your wedding photographs will be unique and personal to you. The images I take will serve as a permanent reminder of the incredible time you had together, with your very nearest and dearest. Rest assured, your wedding photos will be equally as beautiful as any of those you have seen on my website. Your wedding photos and album will become an enduring reminder, a precious family heirloom to be passed down from one generation to the next.

If geography permits, I would love it if we are able to meet up here to run through the final timings of your big day. That said, with many of my wedding clients living overseas or far away from my home/studio in Wimbledon, London we could catch up virtually on Zoom.

WHAT IS THE BOOKING PROCESS?

To secure a date in my diary, a £500 holding deposit is required and the booking forms returned. The balance payment is due 30 days prior to the wedding.
