Yes, absolutely. I don’t limit the amount of group shots you may want but I do suggest (heavily suggest) that you limit the amount of groups to the VIPS – immediate family and bridal party. There is nothing worse than having to stand around for ages, waiting for the ushers to round up that one lost cousin/friend who has decided that they just need to nip to the loo whilst all your mates are drinking champagne!
They are a necessary part of most weddings but managed properly, they can be done efficiently without hijacking your day.
No. I tend to find that I am much more efficient without an assistant to look after or manage. I work quickly and carry all my kit on me – I try to be as self-contained as possible. I don’t need anyone to carry my bags, set up complicated lighting sets or hand me bottles of water as I go! I find also that I can blend in with the day much more, be a part of the wedding.
Sometimes I find that having a 2nd photographer is beneficial (note: ‘photographer’ as opposed to an ‘assistant’) but usually only if you want two situations photographed at the same time in different locations (bride and groom preparations, for instance) or if you have a large number of guests (175+). It’s rare that a wedding needs two photographers though.
Yes indeed. I’m based in Suffolk but travel nationally and happy to photograph weddings abroad as well. I prefer to to have a broad spread of locations and venues over the year which keeps things fresh and interesting.
Travel & accommodation charges may apply on some UK based locations. Travel and accommodation will be charged at cost for destination weddings.
There is no VAT to pay on top of the prices I quote. I do not charge VAT.
