Frequently Asked Questions
How far are you willing to travel?
We are based in Oxfordshire on the border of the Cotswolds and most of our weddings fall within the Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Buckinghamshire areas. We have shot weddings at lots of major venues in this area. However we are more than happy to travel and have recently shot weddings in Spain, Ireland, and Scotland and we are looking forward to shooting our first weddings in France and Poland this year.
What is your wedding photography style?
Our style is relaxed but dynamic. We include a good mixture of documentary style shots, group shots and details as well as looking for the coolest backdrops and lighting to get some awesome portraits of you and your partner. Our style has been described as arty, quirky and cool. To view some of our favourite images please visit our gallery ……..
How long do you stay for?
If you book us for a full day then we will be with you for the bridal prep (we usually arrive with you 2-3 hours before the ceremony time) and we will stay with you well into the evening to capture the party. We are often with you until 11pm and if there’s more to shoot after that then we’ll still be there.
If you are planning a smaller wedding and would prefer shorter coverage then please speak to us and we will be happy to discuss a coverage to suit you.
What is included in the package?

Why do we need a pre wedding shoot?
It’s a chance for you to see how we work and what to expect on the big day. We don’t want to be strangers to you on your wedding day and by the end of the pre wedding shoot you’ll feel relaxed and comfortable with us which will help us to capture you at your best. You’ll also receive all of your pre wedding shoot images to use at your wedding. See examples here
How many pictures will I get on the USB?
If you book us for a full day you can expect around 700 images on your USB, all high resolution and fully edited.
Do you shoot any video?
We shoot lots of mini video clips throughout the day and merge these with your still images to create an animated highlights slideshow of your wedding day. To view some of recent wedding highlights shows click here ….
Do you do a mixture of colour and Black and White?
Yes we usually do a mixture of both based on which images we feel look best in B&W and which ones suit colour. If you would prefer all of your images in colour or all in black and white then we are happy to do this.
What about my friends and family getting copies of the pictures?
Your friends and family can also download high resolution copies of your photos direct from your online viewing gallery at no extra charge. There is an option for them to buy prints from the gallery if they prefer prints.
