About Steve


I have been a photographer for over 30 years, I am still continuing to learn - as they say "Every day is a school day"


There are literally hundreds if not thousands of photographers and it can all get a little confusing for my clients. To help I have a FREE guide on choosing a photographer - its not written by me, its from the British Institute of Professional Photographer (of which I am a member), feel free to drop me an email and ask for it, there is no obligation and I wont pester you. I just get so fed up of poor images. 


For all of my clients I want the process to be something positive and memorable. I will work with / alongside  you  to ensure I fully understand their requirements and ensure that together we get the best from the opportunity, here are a few common questions, if its not covered below please contact me and ill answer you.

COVID GUARANTEE

During the Covid Crisis - I offer a full / 100% money back guarantee to any weddings canceled due to Covid Crisis.


DO YOU HAVE BESPOKE PACKAGES ?

Yes 100% I do, we have three digital packages and three wedding album packages, I do sometimes get asked to provide something bespoke, based on the couples needs and budget. I love to work alongside the couple and plan completely bespoke for their special day. Just fill out my contact form, send me the details and I’ll prepare a bespoke quote.


WHAT IS YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?

I like to work with my clients, I am relaxed as a Wedding Photographer, you won’t see me ordering everyone around, but I will calmly gather family, friends & wedding guests to co-ordinate group photos if you want them.

During the quieter times you will find me wandering around capturing the candid moments, recording the story of your wedding day naturally as it unfolds. Sometimes the bits you wont  see until you receive the photos!

I do like to spend a little time during the with the couple - mabe two 20 minute sessions, one before the wedding breakfast and one after, capturing some memorable and creative images for the couple to cherish.

WHEN DO YOU HAVE TO PAY?

If you would like to secure me as your wedding photographer, I ask for a £250.00 booking fee. This fee is to secure the date and goes towards some of the initial costs. Things like: Preparing your online portal - this holds all the online information (initial information from yourselves / Contracts / Invoices etc). The setting up of your online gallery.

You will receive an automated invoice for the balance around 40 days before the wedding, which will be payable 30 days before your Wedding Day.


HOW LONG DO YOU STAY ON THE DAY?

There are a number of all inclusive wedding packages, offering coverage from the preparations to beyond the first dance so you can choose how long I stay on your wedding day. But if you don't find exactly what your looking for please contact us and we can create something besope to your planes. 


CAN I MEET YOU BEFORE MY WEDDING DAY?

Yes, of course. I always try to meet you ahead of your Wedding Day, its sometimes not possible if we are at opposite ends of the country - in which case we can have a chat (often online). I always hold a wedding consultation meeting with my couples to gather all the special details of your wedding day. I also offer an optional pre-wedding photo shoot, where I can give you some little tips for photographing you on your special day and making you feel comfortable. Most of the couples who have taken up this option  have told me how much they have benefited from this and it has made them feel more relaxed on their Wedding Day.


HOW MANY PHOTOS TO YOU TAKE AT A WEDDING ?

We take unlimited photos on the day, we want to record everything for you, to help create some amazing memories.


HOW DO YOU WORK WITH US FOR A WEDDING?

I offer a free/ no obligation consultation, I will never pressurise you. I simply leave you with all the information and provisionally hold your date. I simply ask that you contact me within 7 days if you want to use me, if not your date is simply removed from the diary. 

. I can offer free advise / guidance from the moment you book (if you need it), ideal if you have any thoughts / questions, simply let me know.

ARE YOU A FULL TIME PHOTOGRAPHER?

Yes, I have been a fully insured, full time Wedding Photographer for a long time setting up my own company in 2006.


DO YOU TAKE GROUP PHOTOGRAPHS?

During the quieter times my aim is to blend into the background and create the story of your wedding day in a natural unobtrusive / candid way. However, I understand that most Weddings require a certain amount of traditional group photos.

Being a very organised Wedding Photographer, I make preparations before your Wedding Day with the couple and together we create a running order for the day and a detailed list of what we want, this is a slightly more formal part of the day, buts is done as quickly and relaxed as possible.


WHEN DO YOU RECEIVE YOUR PHOTOS?

When I get home from photographing your Wedding, I backup all the photos onto the cloud, this is to ensure your photos are stored safely in two places (online and on my computer). I will then aim to edit your photographs and have them back to you within 4 – 6 weeks, but quite often it is much sooner than this.


Still unsure !

It can be daunting wooking for your wedding photographer, there is so much choice.

We will always answer your questions so please feel free to ask us.
