Pricing & Costs
- Having run teaching classes at Folkestone camera club for the last five years, I felt that many people were not getting the chance to have quality wedding images at a fair price. I offer a complete day of photography with the images all processed from original RAW files and presented in a personalised box. I can organise all prints and photobooks required, and can also offer a selection of images converted into an MP4 slide show that can be played in HD quality on a smart TV, phone, or laptop. I work on my own to help keep my costs in line, but would expect each couple to be presented with a record of the day consisting of around 300 images, with your own set, I provide two sets of images on data discs to pass to each side of the family for them to copy and keep the images they want.

What is your most memorable wedding?
As I only do 8 weddings per year, I actually enjoy everyone because I have the time to devote 100% into each, and getting to know each couple, everyone is a completly different event and unique in it's own way.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
I try to deliver a record of the day to fill in all the gaps that my couple miss, and to be available to help with any questions they might want ask during the planning stages. I especially like to work with each couple beforehand to find out what they want, like, and more importantly don't like so that between us we work well together and they feel comfortable working with me.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Sit down with your photographer and let him understand what you want, and then understand that you have to support him with the correct planning to achieve your goal.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
I always plan what to do in the event of rain, then you can always make the best of each day whatever the weather turns out to be on the day.
Describe how you got into photography.
I am part of the team who teach photography at Folkestone Camera Club, and I was constantly being asked why people couldn't find a wedding photographer who would listen to what they wanted, and be there to help them while they were planning their event. I felt that this was a perfectly reasonable thing to expect and having helped several couples, I realised that if I could offer and enjoy each wedding, giving people what they wanted, then I should continue.
