Travel and Accommodation

The above quotes for Tuscany weddings and Devon weddings in most cases will include travel and accommodation. Once I know the exact location and date I will be able to provide an exact quote.

Other destinations, for example for weddings within Italy or the UK, may have extra travel and accommodation costs, but I always try to keep these to the minimum and will ensure they are included with your quote so you are fully aware of the costs.

Other extra costs

Prices are all inclusive. Any taxes or VAT will be included in the quote given to you.

If retouching is required for the images, then a fee may be charged for this. Any special requests may also incur an additional fee, but any work will be quoted and agreed upon before being carried out.

An additional photographer is between €200 to €700 depending on their experience and length of time required

Extras

Additional coverage may be purchased at a rate of €175/ £150 an hour.

Wedding Albums are also available and highly recommended as a beautiful way to remember your wedding day.

Please contact me for a full price list of additional items, included prints, canvases, and frames.

FAQ

How do you describe your style?

Emotion and story telling is the most important thing in an image to me. I work in both a documentary/ reportage way, capturing things as they happen, and a more artistic and styled manner at times. Combining both methods means I can create a unique set of images just for your wedding. To sum up my style in a few words, I guess I would have to say ever the romantic, dreamy, and heart-felt.

Where are you based and do you travel?

I'm based in Northern Tuscany, about an hour and quarter from Pisa, but I also still travel back frequently to photograph weddings and family portraits in Devon. I love to travel, so if you are getting married somewhere other than Tuscany or Devon, please contact me with the details and let's see if we can make it happen!

When will we get our photos?

I have a 6-8 week turn-around on getting the images edited and up on-line for you to be able to view. Once they are loaded on to your password protected web gallery, I send you the link to be able to view them at you leisure (preferably snuggled up together with a glass of wine!) A little later after that you will receive your keepsake box with usb containing your edited images.

How many pictures will we receive?

You will receive a minimum of 500 edited images for a wedding, but giving a specific amount can be quite difficult as each wedding is unique. And I tend to think quality and not quantity are more important. Usually, though, a full day's wedding can produce around 600-800 edited images, all of which you would receive on your usb.

Can we meet before my wedding?

I very much like to meet before the wedding if possible. Sometimes the venue or where you live might just be a bit to far away though. We can, in these cases, attempt to Skype (and if you have a cat he'll have to be involved too I think!) or chat on the phone. I normally like to meet no more then two weeks before the date of the wedding for the final visit/chat, as then you'll have a clearer picture of how the day will go and we can make a timetable and talk any particular images you'd like.

Do you work alone?

I cover most of the weddings I do on my own, as I find this helps with making a connection to the couples I'm working with. It also means I can be as unobtrusive as possible. One of the greatest compliments I receive from the couples I work with is when they say how I seemed to be one of the guests, and they hardly noticed me, but in the pictures I seem to be everywhere - like a photo ninja! If it appears you may need a second photographer to cover the day, though, it's not a problem. I can hire either an assistant or another professional, and have lots of contacts to be able to find the best match for your budget and requirements. Cost for a second photographer can range from £150 to £500 depending on experience and how long they are required on the day.

Are you insured?

I am fully insured with a company that specialises in covering photographers. I have both public liability and professional indemnity insurance.

What qualifications do you have?

Once I decided that I was going to be a photographer at 16, I set out to educate myself to be just that. I took an advanced GNVQ in Art and Design specialising in photography, and then went to the University of Brighton where I gained a BA Hons (2:1) in Editorial Photography. I started assisting a wedding photographer at 17, and after being a wedding photographer for other companies and partnerships for a few years, set up my own business in 2007.

Do you require a booking fee, and when is the balance due?

A non-refundable deposit of £400 is required at the time of booking, along with a signed contract, in order to secure your date. I only take one wedding a day so by paying the deposit I turn away any other queries I get for your date. The balance can be paid in two parts if you like, one a few months before, and the final balance due a month before the date of your wedding.

What if you are sick on my wedding day?

Touch wood! I've yet to miss a wedding in the many many years I've been doing this. But should for any reason I not be able to make your wedding, I have a group of professional wedding photographers I can contact and I will do everything I can to ensure that someone of the same standard and style as myself will be there to capture your day.

Do you take group pictures/ formal photos, and how many would you recommend?

It is completely up to you with regards to group and formal pictures. I have some couples who do not want any, and others who would like quite a few and to have a bit of fun playing around with poses. Everyone is different and we can discuss what works best for you when we meet. I would say that having a list of group photos does mean that you are ensured to get at least one picture of important members of the wedding party. I would recommend keeping the list to 8 to 10 group pictures and just remember that each shot can take up to 5 mins, worth keeping in mind when working out how long you want to hold a big smile for.

I don't like having my photo taken, can you make it any easier?

Most people don't like having their photo taken, but trust me, on your wedding day you'll be far to busy to worry about it! I also always try my best to make sure you feel comfortable so the pictures look natural. And with any of the more staged photographs, I still want you to be yourself and actually prefer to see a couple looking at each other and interacting rather then staring at my camera. If you are really nervous we can also take a more documentary approach and the couple pictures can just be the two of you having a little walk around the grounds, for example. Meeting before can also help, as can a engagement session (see below).

Do you offer engagement or pre-wedding photo shoots?

Yes! I love getting to meet with and also photograph a couple before their wedding. It is useful for both of us as I can see how the two of you interact so I can get the best out of you on the wedding day. For you, it's a chance to get a feel for how I work, discuss any worries you have, or just chat wedding plans with someone who loves to hear about all things wedding! You also get some extra images of the two of you looking all loved up. And how often do you get a chance to have great looking pictures of the both of you? You don't have to dress up any different, we can just go down to your local pub or for a nice walk somewhere if you like. The engagement sessions are all about capturing the two of you together and showing you as a couple.

Do you require us to provide you with a meal on the wedding day?

Yes please! It is a long day and in order to be working my best until the first dance I really appreciate a meal being organised for me and any assistants. Sometimes couples sit me with their wedding guests and this is lovely as I can see if anything happens during the meal that would make a good photograph, but this isn't necessary. I don't need the same meal as guest either, just a good hot vegetarian meal is much appreciated as it's a long day and refuelling is always helpful.

Can family and friends view and potentially buy our pictures?

Yes. I upload all your edited pictures onto a password protected web gallery. I send you and only you the password first though, as I know I would want to be the first one to see my pictures before anyone else! Then it's up to you if you'd like to share the link and password with any friends and family. If you want to give me a list of e-mail addresses I'm more then happy to send out the links for you. Or think about ordering some thank you cards and you can include the log-on details in them. Individual images can then be purchased through the website by your family and friends and posted directly to them so you don't have to worry about organising any of it, it's all taken care of.

How does copyright work?

Copyright, by law, belongs to the photographer. I retain copyright of all my images when I give you the digital files, I assign a licence of rights to you so that you may print (from the high res files) and share on-line (from the web optimised, watermarked images) until your heart's content. You can use the images for personal use, the only thing I ask is that you do not sell or use the images commercially without seeking my permission first.

Can we purchase an album at a later date?

Yes, of course. A year or two down the line if you'd like an album just let me know. Please contact me for a link to my on-line brochure which has the individual prices of albums.
