We reckon we might be mega awkward in front of the camera, is that going to be ok?

Yes, it’s going to be ok, don’t panic Mr Mannering! A majority of the couples who approach me tend to bring this up, and actually the way I work is perfect for people who don’t feel they’ve perfected their Vogue poses. My default mode is to not interfere or pose anything, so for most of the day you’ll look absolutely brilliant by just ignoring me! Even when I shoot couple shots, I’m secretly snapping the fits of giggles and stolen looks when you’re not noticing, and this is how I capture relaxed happy faces!

How many images do we get from our day?

I work in an unlimited way, essentially all that means is that I photograph everything that looks interesting and wonderful to me, and if there’s more, I will give you more. I’m there to shoot your wedding for YOU, and it’s pointless for me to take nice photos that never get seen by anyone because there’s a maximum number. Having said this, not everybody likes surprises, so I can reassure you that generally I will produce a minimum of 400 photos for a full day’s shooting.

What happens if you get ill?

Luckily, I’m a fairly robust person, I put that down to my excessive love of sushi (if the mercury poisoning hasn’t got me yet then nothing will!) and my Captain America-esque vaccine record (travelling+working in hospitals=sore arm). However, if something bad was to happen to me, there will be no need to worry as I am a member of three UK wedding photographer networks, including one cleverly named “Emergency Wedding Photography Cover Club”, that will almost certainly have a willing stand-in.

Are you insured?

Yes indeedy, I and all my equipment are fully insured! Which is good because I sometimes like to climb around like a ninja in the name of wedding photography.
