Booking me as your wedding photographer

East-Quay-Lobster-Shack-Whitstable-Beach-Wedding-40Getting in touch

When you enquire with me, I get a thrill of excitement. Whether it’s a teeny tiny wedding, a pub-based shindig, a big fat Greek wedding or a festival in a field, as long as we get on, and you’re looking for my fun, natural, documentary style of wedding photography, then we’re on!

If I’m available I’ll send you my pricing info. Have a peruse and let me know which options you’d like to go for. If I get another enquiry for the same date I’ll let you know. The first to put down a deposit gets the date, but I offer the first enquiry first refusal.

Meeting up

If I’m available on your date, I’d love to meet up with you in Thanet during the week or via Skype to make sure we get on and are on the same page. At our meeting we’ll chat about your wedding, what you like to do in your spare time and how great cats are.

If you would like to book me, let me know! I’ll send you my booking form ( followed by a contract from Lightblue, which is a super-easy e-signature thingy. I do this all online because I’m really good at losing pieces of paper, and also because the whole print, sign, scan, email thing is a ballache for you.

YOU’RE BOOKED! How exciting!

I ask for a £500 deposit to secure the date, which is due when you fill in the booking form. The details for the deposit will pop up on the screen after you send the booking form, and you’ll also get an email with the info. The remaining balance is due on the 1st of the month the month before your wedding (so 1st June for a wedding in July).

Albums and other nice things

You don’t have to decide on an album or engagement shoot etc just yet – you can add these on later. Yes that’s a cat’s bottom in the photo.

Between booking and the big day

In this period you can feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or want to run any ideas by me. Otherwise, I’ll leave you to your wedding planning without bothering you – I’ll get in contact a couple of months before your wedding with an invoice for the balance and the Day in Detail form for you to fill in, which is really important as it will detail the group shots, addresses and timings. If there are any secrets you’re keeping from your guests or partner as a surprise on the day, please let me know, so I can make sure to capture them! I’ll get in contact the day before your wedding to let you know I’m raring to go and find out if there are any last-minute changes. I’ve heard from other photographers that sometimes their couples have neglected to tell them about a last-minute venue or time change. The thought of missing anything brings me out in a cold sweat, so please let me know if anything at all changes!

And then it’s the big day! Let’s do this thing!

What happens now?

My wedding photography gives you a full day of coverage, from getting ready till a few songs after the first dance. I like to have a good boogie on the dancefloor before I head home, and god help you if Taylor Swift comes on you won’t be able to get rid of me.

When I get home I back up all your images, and crash. I tend to sleep 12 solid hours after a wedding. The next morning I’ll pick and edit a few pictures for a sneak peek, so you have something to look forward to. I’ll put them on my facebook page – if you ‘like’ my page you can tag and share away. Feel free to ask me for the high-res versions of any of these if you’d like to use them as thank you cards.

I’ll spend the next 6-8 weeks editing the whole wedding and getting it sent to you. You will receive the photos via a special online gallery so you can easily buy prints and share your photos with family and friends.

If you’re having an album, you can use the image gallery to choose the photos by clicking the ‘heart’ button – super easy. I’ll design the album and give you a look to make sure you love it. I use QT for my albums because I just love them. They have thick pages and sharp bright colours.

I know what it’s like after a wedding with all the budget gone, but I highly recommend getting an album, otherwise your photos will be doomed to live on your computer and not shared. It’s the start of your collection of family memories to pass on down the generations. Consider asking your guests for money towards an album as a gift.

I hope this has helped answer some questions you may have about booking me as your wedding photographer. If you would like to book me, email me on or if I’ve confirmed your date, fill in my booking form.
