So you've seen our prices and packages, and are ready to make an enquiry? That's great!
We've compiled a list of questions that we commonly get asked, and if you have still have questions feel free to contact us.
We like to keep things simple, which is why we ask for a small deposits of just £50 for any of the packages you choose. Once your deposit is sent, your date is completely confirmed. To find out more about deposit refunds, see the FAQ #14 at the bottom of the page.

We know some photographers want full payment 3 months before-hand, which is fine, but we know you will most likely be paying out so much around that same period, that we're willing to hold on a little to ease your financial burden.
Cash or Credit
We don't mind how you pay us, whether you want to bank transfer us the money, pay in instalments via direct debit, or discreetly give us a wad of cash in a brown envelope from inside your jacket; as long as it's the right amount, we're happy.
Your prices aren't as expensive as most Wedding Photographers, why is that?
This is probably one of the questions I get asked the most, and it is understandable.
Why don't you offer a second photographer add-on?
I think the reason for this is reliability.
Some photographers offer a shorter turnaround period than you, why is that?
As answered before in the first question, photography is not my 9-5 so unfortunately, as much as I would love to spend more time editing the photographs to you in a shorter timeframe, I also wouldn't want to rush the process.
I know that you will be anticipating seeing them a lot, but I'm sure you would prefer to get your money's worth when it comes down to the editing process, as that is a big part of providing you with photographs that will last a lifetime.
Whereabouts are you based and how far will you travel?
Though I'm based in Leicester, I'm more than happy to travel anywhere across the UK and even abroad for destination weddings. This will usually incur an additional cost to cover my travel price, but even with that added on you will still most likely be spending a lot less than with some local alternatives.
Why do I get watermarked and un-watermarked photographs?
To put it simply, the watermarked photographs will be used on my online gallery but when you receive your high-resolution photographs, either via online download or memory stick, they won't have any watermarks on.
How will you be dressed if you are booked as our photographer?
Don't worry, I won't outshine your husband with my suave attire, or at least I'll try my hardest not to haha.
I haven't seen much black and white photography on your site, do you do it often?
In all honesty, it's just not my go-to preference as a photographer, however if that's what you would like, I can definitely make that happen for you.
If you have never been to the venues before, how will you know how to photograph it?
This is a tricky one, as no 2 venues are the same. However, as a professional who has photographed at hundreds of different venues, from dingy-dark churches, to very bright rooms, the photography kit I have with me is meant to combat those uncertainties.
Will we need to provide you with food on the day?
We're not really big posey-picture-people, will that be a problem?
No, that's not a problem at all. I've had more than a few couples who are a bit camera shy and their modelling days are behind them. A majority of the day will be spent with me getting candid photographs of you and the guests, apart from the posed group family shots, photos with friends, and a selfie with me when you're ready.
What happens if you're ill on our wedding day?
Firstly (touch wood), out of all my years of photography, whether it be weddings, birthday parties or even nightclub bookings, I've never had to miss a booking due to ill-health.
If you take thousands of photographs on the day, why do we only get less than half? And can we pay you for the unedited ones?
Unfortunately, as accommodating as I am with most things to make my clients happy, I am unable to provide you with every single photograph I take on the day. I can assure you, that everything I've selected is everything you would need to see, and the ones that don't make the cut aren't ones that would be missed massively.
And if you're STILL thinking, "yeah but we won't show anyone else, it's just for us", or "we'll even pay you extra for them" sorry, but no will be my final answer. It's not about money, it's not about whether they do end up online/seen by others, it's just a pride in my work thing, and I hope you can understand that.
Does your editing include retouching with things like removing scars, airbrushing or making me slimmer?
Part of my service is that I always professionally edit every photography individually, adjusting tone, contrast, cropping etc, however I'm not a digital artist and so therefore my aim is to capture your wedding as close to how it really was on the day.
What if my wedding is cancelled or re-scheduled, do I get my deposit back?
Because we only ask for a very small deposit amount from our customers, unfortunately deposits are only refundable under extenuating circumstances such as if Studio NI is no longer able to commit to your date.
