Do you work alone or with another photographer?
I work alone. I've tried working with other photographers but it does more harm than good. The style of the pictures aren't the same and even though there's more images at different angles they're not necessarily the right images. I also want to be as unobtrusive as possible and with another photographer it becomes more difficult to be discreet. I've also seen videographers banging around causing havoc and doing their best to destroy the atmosphere of the day. A fun and relaxed atmosphere helps with lots of discretion from the photographer.
Do you do wedding albums?
I personally don't do wedding albums. Instead, I take you to the right place that specialises in them. Most photographers who say they do wedding albums don't actually do them personally, they just send it all off to the printers and then charge you extra. So why not just take the images to the printing shop and get the same album for much cheaper. I can take you to the place that has my 100 percent trust that produce quality albums of all sizes and materials, I can give you advice on the design of which images to use and to go where or you can even design them yourself online through an app that the printing shop provides.
Do you travel outside of Lancashire?
I do lots of weddings outside of lancashire. I actually prefer it because it means i'm shooting at a different venue. The advantages of working in the same venue numerous times is that I get to know all the little hotspots for the best light and angles of view but I love travelling to a new venue. I love a change of scenery and that search for another unique image. I charge a bit extra for mileage depending on how much further away the venue is and may even charge for an over night stay if it's a big distance away. I also do weddings abroad but will charge for the flight and an overnight stay.
How long are you at the wedding for?
My wedding day package is from the morning until after the first dance around 9pm and so i'll start as soon as the hairdresser and makeup artist arrives. The 'getting ready' part is actually my favourite part of the day because everybody is excited, nervous, happy, sometimes with happy tears - plenty of opportunities for those spontaneous images you never get tired of looking at and certainly ones that last a lifetime.
What is the music DVD?
My favourite part of post processing. Once the images are finished a lot of them are put in order on to the DVD with your choice of music playing over them, telling the story of your day. I guarantee you'll watch it again and again!
