– Frequently Asked Questions – Engagement –

WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHING COUPLES?

My photography style is natural, relaxed and timeless and my aim is to create beautiful, intimate and emotive imagery that represent you as a couple.   

HOW CAN WE MAKE OUR SESSION UNIQUE?

Every love story is unique, so is every couple photo session. Ultimately, the most important choices you need to make is the location and your clothing, as these will reflect your personalities and the type of couple you are. Some of my couples know exactly what they want, however if you are unsure, I am happy to talk through ideas and options with you.  

CAN YOU RECOMMEND US A MAKEUP ARTIST HAIRDRESSER ETC.?

Absolutely! Working in the wedding industry in the last years I have worked with some fantastic wedding suppliers, whose details are worth passing on, so feel free to ask! I think that pampering yourself a little bit before your engagement photos is a great way to relax and will leave you feeling confident and your absolute best. 

HOW LONG WILL THE SESSION LAST?

The photo session lasts for 2 hours; and you will have time for a change of clothes if you would like more variation. The best time of day for photo sessions is two hours before sunset or two hours after sunrise. Most of my couples opt for evening session, but I am used to early starts (got three kids, remember) so we can discuss what works best for you. I shoot during weekdays as my weekends are primarily booked with weddings. 

CAN WE SHARE THE GALLERY WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY?

Yes of course. Your gallery will be available from the ‘client’ area of my website. You will get a password to access the gallery and another to download the images. The images can be downloaded in high resolution (6000 px wide) as well as web size versions (1024 px wide). The high resolution files can be used to print photos up to poster size canvases and are more than sufficient for web use. The web sized images are much smaller and therefore are faster to download and upload. They are ideal for sharing on Social Media or for quick viewing. You will be able to send the link with the passwords to your friends and family as you wish.

DO YOU OFFER PRINTS AND OTHER PRODUCTS?

Yes, my client gallery is linked to my favourite professional printing lab and you will be able to directly purchase prints, canvas, metal and mounted prints. It is a very user friendly site and the printing lab produces very high quality, beautiful products which I am proud to put my name on. Other products like print boxes, acrylic frames and keepsake folios are also available, so please let me know if you would like me to source something special for you.

CAN YOU MAKE A PHOTO ALBUM FROM THE IMAGES?

Yes, I am very happy to partner with Yorkshire-based company Folio Albums to offer beautiful fine art photo albums. Each album is handcrafted with the highest quality materials and care. Folio albums are luxurious and wonderful products you will fall in love with at the first site, just like I did. Please click (here) to read more about Folio albums.

THAT ALL SOUNDS GREAT, HOW DO WE BOOK?

A 30% non-refundable booking fee is required to secure your date. We can email or chat over the phone about location ideas and other details to make the session perfect for you.
