Questions + Answers

 

What type of gear do you use?
I am extremely fortunate to be able to shoot with the best Nikon equipment available at the moment. If you’d like to see what’s in my bag, please visit this page.
What steps do you take to safeguard our images?
As soon as I get home from a wedding, I immediately back up all of the images taken during the day onto 2 seperate external harddrives. One of the harddrives is kept at a secure off-site location. I’ve also recently started to make use of online storage as a third backup system.
Do you use a second photographer during weddings?
I don’t as I prefer to work alone. I’ve tried a few things to see what works and what I’m most comfortable with and I always go back to using only an assistant. My style is to keep it as simple as possible with someone to help me carry the heavy bags and run around after missing family members during the group photos. I do provide the option to bring in an additional second photographer for your wedding if it suits your needs. Normally, you only need two photographers if you are having a very large wedding with many guests or require photographs taken at the same time in different locations.
Do you take table shots?
Unfortunately I don’t. In my experience this takes up a lot of time and prevents me from noticing precious moments that are happening all around me and which has become such a part of my signature style. I’m at my happiest when I can just blend in during the reception and take photos of the moments and the emotions that are happening and that makes your family and group of friends special. I would highly recommend hiring a photobooth to get fun shots of all the guests.
Who chooses the photographs that goes into the album?
You do. After sending you your digital photographs, I will guide you through the steps of selecting your favourite ones to be put into the album.
I'm very camera shy. Do you have any tips on being more comfortable in front of the lens?
Don’t worry, we’re in the same boat! I also don’t like to have my photos taken. But over the years I’ve learnt a few tricks on making my clients feel at ease. I’m the type of person who has absolutely no “airs” about them and I often say something embarrassing or trip over rocks or other invisible objects, so we’re bound to have a laugh! If your still unsure, I’d suggest booking an engagement shoot beforehand to give you some practise before the big day.
What is required to book the date?
1. Fill in my enquiry form. 2. Wait for my email with my rates and packages. 3. Fill out my online booking form. 4. Carefully read through my Terms & Conditions, sign and send it back to me. 5. After receiving the invoice pay the 50% booking fee. 6. Smile! And tick me off your to do list :)
