So, I get asked a lot of questions and I have covered a few here, however, if you have other questions then please get in touch and I will be happy to answer them for you:
Q: Do you travel outside of your Hertfordshire area?
Yes, absolutely, national and international options are available also. My prices are for weddings within a 100-mile radius, so additional travel fees will apply to cover costs over 100 miles. If I am required to stay over those costs will need to be factored in...but I'm a cheap date, so it doesn't need to be Park Lane standard!
Q: I hate having my photo taken
Don't worry, so many people are in the same position. For the all-day package we would have already done a pre-wedding engagement shoot, so you will see my style and how that works. Some of the best photos I have captured are of people who really don't like having their photos taken, that way when a great image comes through it is totally authentic. I like to think I have a calming, relaxing nature and this helps on the day for you to be relaxed.
Q: Can we meet before we decide
Absolutely, I would insist on it. You need to be confident you are not only booking someone's style you like but also someone you actually like to spend time with. After all, that person will be around a lot on the wedding day. That meeting is totally non-committal, just a chat, great coffee and discuss your plans, my style and anything else you wish to see or hear. Oh, coffee is on me!
Q: Have you covered many different types of weddings?
Yes, I have been fortunate to have covered many styles in many locations. Over the last couple of years alone, I have covered traditional western weddings, Sikh, Hindu, same-sex and even a Druid ceremony. All of them are fabulous and offer something unique. I have yet to cover a Jewish wedding, so feel free to help me cross that off my checklist.
Q: Do you stay all day and cover everything?
The Wedding Collection comes with an all-day agreement, so yes, I am there...until you get fed up with me, which is shortly after the first dance usually. The day starts with bridal prep and ends in the evening, covering everything in between. If you need me to stay longer, such as for a surprise that has been arranged, then I will, of course, be happy to do so.
Q: How many images will I get?
It's about quality and not quantity. You want photos that you want to look back on regularly and relive the day, not 10,000 that you barely look. As a wedding photographer, it is my job to tell the story of the day and capture the best moments to give you the photos that you want to look at. As a result, I tend to provide about 300-400 images from a shoot (and back & white conversions)
Q: What style is your photography?
I see it as storytelling, capturing the joy and emotion of your wedding day. It's mainly candid, documentary shots, taken without intrusion. However, I do also pose some simple elegant art shots so you have options for printing later and enhances the story of your day
Q: Can I see a full wedding that you have shot?
Absolutely! Happy to send links, but there are examples, although not a full wedding, in the blog, go check it out Mulu Blog
Q: Will you be the photographer on the day?
Yes, I will be the photographer for you on the day. I know, you will be bored of the sight of me by that stage!
Q: Do you charge extras, such as travel fees?
Not for weddings within 100 miles of St Albans. The price is the price, I do not have hidden extras unless travel is beyond 100 miles and doesn't include a stayover. For those, there will be a cost to cover a stay over nearby to the wedding, but let's discuss it to see what the arrangments are.
