If you’re further than that, a small fee of £0.50 per mile is charged. For weddings with travel more than 2 hours, overnight stay may be charged.

Where will my photo session be, can it be done in a studio?
I tend to shoot my photosessions in the great outdoors using natural and available light as I find people are more relaxed and children’s skin tone tends to look more natural. I also find taking photos in parks when they are having fun helps in getting their personality shine. I can photograph client’s at their home, outdoor country parks, private locations (client will need to bear the additional entrance fee if an entrance fee is required). We do not have a studio at the moment but can use flash strobes if you would like a photo shoot done in your home.
How many people can you include in the portrait session?
I do not limit the number of people in a portrait session but do note that time is limited when more people are involved and that might also mean there are less photos of each person to choose from.
What do I wear during a photosession?

Do you shoot (Large / Small / Asian / Jewish / Christian / Gay / Non-Religious) Weddings?
Yes, we do all sorts of wedding. Just contact us with the details of your wedding and we will love to be apart of your special day.
What is your style?
We tend to photograph both candid as well as posed styles during our portrait sessions using mainly natural light and sometimes flash strobes. For weddings we tend to use more of a photojournalistic style to capture the moment and ambiance of your special day, we do take some posed family group photos.
Are my photos edited?
Portraits – We shoot a maximum of a few hundred images during a portrait session so each and every photo is scrutinised and then selected before it is professionally edited. We aim to provided you all your images in hi-resolutions (depending on your package). Photos are provided in colour while some are further edited into different tones, if we feel they are best showcased that way. It takes anywhere between 2 to 4 weeks from your shoot date for you to view the online gallery depending on how busy we are.
Weddings – We can easily capture around a thousand images during a wedding. Each and every photo is then scrutinised and then selected before it is professionally edited. For a full day wedding coverage, you can receive anywhere between 300-500 hi-resolution images of your wedding. These images are then further edited into black and white or sepia, if we feel they are best showcased that way. It takes anywhere between 4 weeks up to 12 weeks from the date of your event for you to view the online gallery depending on how busy we are.
Do you provide other products besides the hi-res images?
Depending on client’s budget, we offer a variety of packages either just hi-res images on customised USB thumb drive, prints, canvas enlargements or leather bound albums. Do contact us and let us know your budget and what you would prefer.
