Well let me start by saying CONGRATULATIONS to you on your engagement!
Who ‘asked’ and who said “yes” to marrying the one that completes them and wants to spend the rest of their life with the other and vice versa??. Being in love is one of the best feelings in the world and when you find your ONE it’s the beginning of your DREAM TEAM!!
Although my relaxed wedding photography is based in Birmingham in the West Midlands I have had the pleasure to photograph beautiful weddings in Solihull, Dudley, Lichfield, and Derby. I will also cover areas such as County of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Stoke-on-Trent, and Telford and Wrekin; and the counties of Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Staffordshire and beyond.
Well now comes the most exciting part of your engagement the wedding planning!! I absolutely adore weddings, I can confidently say you’ve come to the right place as I want to hear all about your perfect day, so we can plan how to capture every last detail of your BIG day.
My style of photography means I strive to capture your day in an unobtrusive and discreet way. I will tell the story of your beautiful wedding day in a relaxed and honest manner. I really want you to feel relaxed, not dragged away from your family and friends for hours on end taking lots of posed photographs. I truly appreciate you wanting some group photos with the people you hold dear in your heart. I truly get that parents and grandparents want these photos for the mantel piece and that’s great because who doesn’t want to be reminded of happy times!!
I simply want to capture your wedding day so that when you look back you can be reminded of how you felt on the day, having your hair done, walking down the aisle to meet you soulmate to say “I do”. I also want you to see moments you physically weren’t able to see and enjoy the details of your special day that you so perfectly planned.

Frequently Asked Questions……
Are you insured?
Yes, I’m fully insured and carry both public liability and indemnity insurance.
When will we receive our photos?
Digital processing of your photographs takes approximately 6-8 weeks but could be longer during busy periods. The creation of a wedding album takes 6-12 weeks.
Who owns the copyright?
I own the copyright to all my photography work. What you will get from me with regards to your photographs is printing rights. What this means is you can print as many images as you like and put them in frames on canvas and display them with pride. This also means you can share photos with family and friends. The rights you have only cover personal use. This means you are not permitted to sell them for profit. If you have suppliers wanting to use the images you need to send them my way!
How will the wedding be covered if you are ill?
I hope never to let my clients down through illness, or personal emergencies but if this were ever to arise I have a network of professional photographers I can call upon to attend in my place.
How many images will be in our gallery?
The exact amount images you get is dependent on many factors including things like, which package you choose, how long I’m with you. Whether there is a second shooter and how many guests you have. I would say as a minimum I deliver 300 images.
What is your photography style?
My style of photography is about capturing your wedding day in an unobtrusive and discreet manner. I want to document your wedding in an authentic and honest way. As one of my couples I want you to feel relaxed, so you can enjoy your time with each other and with your lovely guests. I’m not about forced smiles, crazy posing just simple storytelling capturing the moments as they unfold.
Can we share our photos with family and friends?
The online gallery that is sent to you can easily be shared with family and friends.
Do you take group shots?
Yes, I take group photos as I know they can be an important part of your day, documenting family and friends so they are in the picture. But I am also aware that people tend not to like standing around waiting for these shots as they would rather be getting the drinks in, laughing and chatting with friends. So, I tend to say a limit of 10 group shots for the comfort of your guests.
How do we book you?
Firstly, get in touch with me to see if I have your wedding date free. This can be done via my contact page. Then we can schedule a consultation where we can meet, chat about your plans and see if we are a good fit this will help you decide if you want to book me as your wedding photographer. Then your booking will be complete once you’ve signed the contract and paid your non-refundable booking fee. The remainder of your fees are due 4 weeks before your wedding.
How are the photos delivered?
Your photos will be delivered via an online gallery. Your gallery will be password protected so its secure.
Do you offer prints?
Yes, I’m able to provide prints from a professional printing lab.
