- Why should I hire a wedding photographer? .

Simply put, your friends and family probably aren't professional photographers. The photos that end up on Facebook may seem like a great idea at wine o'clock, but chances are they won't do your big day justice. I am a fully trained and insured Liverpool wedding photographer; this isn't a hobby or part-time occupation as is the tendency with many wedding photographers. I have professionally shot in excess of 500 weddings with high-end equipment and always carry backup gear. I know when and where to achieve the best shots so your day isn't interrupted. And most of all, my photos won't become blurrier as the day progresses!

.

.
- How would you describe your style? .

I class myself as a documentary wedding photographer. The less obtrusive I am, the more genuine your photos will look. I observe and capture the day as it organically unfolds, drawing as little attention to myself as possible. A genuine smile is far more beautiful than a forced one, and I would rather lurk behind the bouquets waiting for that perfect shot than tick boxes and produce fabricated, set-up memories.

- You are based in the North West, do you travel elsewhere? .

Although I am a North West wedding photographer I will travel wherever you need me and have accompanied wedding parties to many parts of Europe.

.

.
- What preparations will you make before our wedding? .
About a month before your wedding day I will send you a checklist to complete, or we can meet and finalise it together; the checklist covers final details such as time, and formal wedding images, names of wedding party etc.
On a practical level, I make sure my car is fully serviced and that I have maps and a Sat-Nat; I leave with plenty of time to spare to avoid any traffic delays and make sure I get to the church on time!

.

.
- How long will you photograph at our wedding? .
If you choose Wedding photography Package One, you will receive coverage of your day from early wedding preparations until the wedding first dance and evening party. Wedding photography Package Two is only available Monday to Thursday, and you will receive coverage from the wedding ceremony to the wedding breakfast.

.
- What if I don't like having my photo taken? .

Don't worry, many couples feel awkward posing! They look comfortable and natural in my wedding galleries because of my unobtrusive approach. I will give you some hints and tips, whilst a pre-wedding or wedding engagement shoot can prepare you with a taste of what to expect.

- How do you deal with low light and/or bad weather? .
As a British wedding photographer I am fully prepared for capricious weather! Professional lenses help, and as a full-time wedding photographer I have the experience to quickly adapt to these situations.

.
- How can our guests view photos and purchase their own copies?
Your pictures will be available on my website via a password protected client login. From there, your guests can purchase their own copies, either in black and white or colour in sizes ranging from 4” x 6” to 8” x 12”. You will also have the option to buy the copyright DVD enabling you to reprint infinite photographs for your family ad friends

- How many photos do we get? .
There is no limit to the number of photos you will receive, but usually it is between 300 and 400

.

.
- How soon after my wedding day will we receive the photos and what kind of retouching and editing do you offer?

All photos of the day are taken in colour, and then some are edited to black and white, airbrushed and so forth. Because each image is individually retouched and edited for quality and consistency, you will generally receive your photos within 6-8 weeks after your wedding day. You will be sent a link to your personal client login wedding gallery, and after that, you will receive your Proof book and Memory stick enabling you to reprint infinite photographs for your family and friends.

- Can we decide which photos go in the album?
Of course! After your wedding you will receive a Memory stick and proof book, which will contain your wedding photographs taken during the day, which will be the basis from which your wedding album will start to be built. Photos can be printed from the disc and reproduced for personal use. You can even take it to your favourite processors even upload them to Facebook.

.

.
- What kind of albums do you offer?
Your wedding photos can be displayed in a range of wedding albums and story books are available for you to choose.
Your wedding photos can be displayed in one of a range of wedding albums and story books that we have available. You can choose the Graphic Studio Story Book, the Jorgensen Wedding Album or the Folio Wedding Album.

- What are your fees?
To discuss fees please get in touch via my contact page.

- How do we book?
When possible, it's great to have a chat in person at my studio or even via Skype or Facetime. On receipt of a contract and a £250 deposit, your wedding day photographer is officially booked and I will be indisposed to you only on that day.
If you have been lead to my wedding photography website on your search for Liverpool wedding photography, rest assured that you won’t find anyone more dependable and I would be honoured to document your special day.
