▸ How can I get in touch with you?
▸ I would like to know my photographer before booking, can we meet?
Of course! Actually to me meeting the couple is essential. We can meet whenever you want with no obligation. I would love to hear every detail of your wedding day and your expectations. Just send me an email or fill out the contact form and I will schedule you in.
▸ I cannot meet in person. Can I Skype/FaceTime you?
Sure! We can have a friendly video chat. Just get in touch and we will find the best time to do it.
▸ How can I secure my wedding date?
The date is secured when the wedding contract is signed and the non-refundable deposit is paid. The rest of the amount is due one month before your wedding date.
▸ Do you offer digital-only packages? Why are wedding albums so important to you?
I work with Queensberry Albums which are the finest handmade bespoke albums. I do think that digital images are great but not as great as a proper album or print. Nowadays, we are used to have hundreds of images on our phones and the thing is that we tend to forget about them. A moment as important as a wedding or an engagement, and the artistic and beautiful images which I love to take, deserve a better place in your lives. Barcelona Experience includes both a beautiful Queensberry Album and your Digital Files with a copyright release for personal use. Madrid Experiences includes a beautiful but smaller Queensberry Album and your Digital Files. Madrid Experience Digital includes the digital files but no album. You can learn more about my albums clicking here. Learn more about my packages / experiences or get in touch for further information.
▸ Where can I find more information about your experiences / packages?
▸ Why do you say 'experiences' instead of packages?
Well, because I just don't put my services and products together with a price tag. I rather offer a high-end experience that meets what a couple expects for their wedding day: to be special. I'm not the typical photographer, I do not just pop up on your wedding day to take the pictures and that is all. I meet my couples as many times as we need to know them really well, to know what exactly they are after, I visit their venues with them and overall, I help them as much as I can. On the other hand, I work with the best wedding suppliers in the world to hand to my couples unique, bespoke and the best hand-crafted wedding albums, prints, frames and canvases of the wedding industry.
▸ Do you include an Engagement / Pre-wedding session in your experiences/packages?
Yes, I do. An Engagement / Pre-wedding session is included in all my experiences/packages. This session is mandatory.
▸ How many photographs can we expect?
It depends on the wedding but you should expect around 350 - 800 edited photographs.
▸ When will we see our wedding pictures?
As soon as the same day or one day after you will see an image as preview on your placeholder gallery (where your friends and family will be able to sign up to receive a notification when your online gallery goes live) and my social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+). You will see the whole set of pictures within 4-6 weeks at the final consultation, where we will choose all the images for your Queensberry Wedding Album with the help of a stunning bottle of Spanish wine. Learn more about Queensberry Albums.
▸ Will you edit our wedding photographs?
Sure! As part of the 'experience', I will edit all your photographs, one by one. Not just the colour and contrast but also skin, small imperfections etc... You will have exactly what you can find across this website, matching my style.
▸ Will I be able to print my images?
If you book an Experience that includes digital files you will receive a 'Copyright Release' for personal use so you can print as many pictures as you want.
▸ I don't like to have my photograph taken, what can I do?
Ok, don't worry. I hate to have my photograph taken either. You just have to be yourself on your wedding day and enjoy. You don't have to worry about how you will look, that is my work and I swear: you will look amazing. One of my last brides told me at her first consultation that she always looks terrible on photographs - I’m not photogenic at all - she said. At the end, when she saw her wedding pictures for the very first time she cried like a baby. She couldn't believe how she looked but, as I said to her: This is you!
▸ How soon do we need to book our wedding date?
Dates book really quickly, usually 12 or 18 months in advance. For this reason, get in touch as soon as possible.
▸ Do I have to choose a package / experience at the time of booking?
No, you don't have to choose one at the time of booking. You can secure your wedding date and then think with your partner which one is the best for you. If you don't make up your mind don't worry, I will help you with that. You have 30 days after you commission me for your wedding to decide. When you do, I will include the package on the contract to sign it online or in person.
▸ Where are you based?
I'm based in Basingstoke, Hampshire. I document weddings across the UK and Spain.
▸ Are you fully insured?
Yes, I am.
▸ How long will you be on our wedding day?
It depends on the package you choose. My aim is to tell the story of your wedding day so even my starting package offers enough time to take all the pictures I need to tell your LOVE story.
▸ What kind of equipment do you use?
As I demand the very highest standards in image quality, performance and reliability, I only use Nikon professional equipment.
▸ Do you have backup equipment?
You never know what might happen so, the answer is yes. Several cameras, lenses and hard drives. Your pictures are always secure with me, I have never lost a digital photograph (touch wood 😎).
▸ Do you take 'family formals' / traditional group wedding portraits?
Yes, I do. We will talk about the family formals during the process. I send a form to each of my couples to fill out. One of the questions is about family formals and you decide how many you would like to have and the family members taking part of them.
▸ What happens after I book my wedding with you?
The experience starts! We will schedule your Engagement Session and we'll talk about possible locations which mean the world to you. Two months before your wedding date we will begin working on your provisional timeline and you will fill out a form to know more about both of you. To me, it's very important to know every detail to tell your LOVE story as you deserve. Things like how you met, where, important family members etc. Finally, one month before your wedding date we will walk through the timeline again to see if something has changed.
▸ I haven't made up my mind. Could you hold my date?
Unfortunately, I cannot. I receive several enquiries each week. Therefore, I only lock a date when the wedding contract is signed and the deposit is paid.
Have I forgotTEN something?
Let me know!
