FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
how would you describe your photography style?
My photographic ‘style’ is raw, nostalgic & warm, and I am an avid lover of candid moments. Unscripted photographs that truly reflect the emotion you are feeling at that very moment in time are what I aim to create. I want to capture your special, sentimental memories in a way that you can look back on in years to come and feel the exact same happiness you felt on your special day.
What equipment do you use?
For Weddings & Portrait sessions I carry 2 Canon 5D Mark IV’s, and primarily use Sigma Art prime lenses (35mm, 50mm & 85mm). I use a Canon 580 EXii flash to fill, however I tend to use ambient/natural lighting much as possible.
How do you edit your photos?
I use Adobe Lightroom to edit all of my images. I try to keep my editing style as natural as possible, mainly playing around with tones, curves, skin tones, and dodging & burning. I will occasionally use Adobe Photoshop to retouch an image where necessary (I do not airbrush).
do you offer print/albums?
I currently do not offer print as a service, however all of my Wedding Packages include a private online gallery in which you have the option to print images of your choice/create albums (at an additional cost) through Atkins.
We aren’t comfortable in front of the camera…?
This is my favourite thing to hear from my clients, and if you have booked a shoot with me you will soon find out why! The best part of what I do is getting to know you very well and having a joke around. I will give you direction however, you will find that I do not ‘pose’ you as such. Instead I capture the in-between, raw moments where you are giggling at my lame jokes while I shout ‘YASSSS’ at the top of my lungs.
Can you customise a Wedding package for me?
Yep - flick me an email and let’s chat!
What is your turnaround time?
For Weddings, typically 4 - 6 weeks. I also provide you with 5-10 sneak peek images 7 days after your wedding, depending on your package choice. For events/additional services, generally less than 7 working days.
Do you offer Videography?
I do not! However I know some very talented videographers that I can recommend for your special day.
