Frequently asked questions
HOW DO I BOOK YOU?
First things first, get in touch! Fill out the contact form below with your details, let me know the date and venue locations of your wedding, and which package takes your fancy. Feel free to tell me a bit about yourself too! You will receive an email reply from me within 48 hours, answering any questions you have.
Once you're fully satisfied with all the info we've discussed and you're happy to book me as your photographer, I'll send you my Wedding Photography Contract and a Booking Form for you to read and complete. I'll also send you an invoice with the agreed quote and payment details. To complete the booking process I ask for a £350 non-refundable deposit to secure your booking. Once I've received your completed contract and deposit, the deed is done! I'll officially be your wedding photographer!
WHAT IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE?
I love capturing those moments where pure and real emotions are expressed, the kind that a pose in front of the camera just doesn't grasp. So, I take a step back and capture the memories of your special day, as they unfold.
I consider myself as relaxed and creative. I try to ensure that the bride and groom, and everyone else for that matter, feel as though they can be themselves and have fun. I aim to capture the quirks of the couple within my images, giving the images personality and character. I also pay a lot of attention to detail, so I photograph the small and easily forgotten things such as table decorations, table names, and button holes, so that none of the details of your special day are lost.
DO WE NEED TO HAVE THE ENGAGEMENT SHOOT? AND DOES IT HAVE TO BE IN YORK?
If you do not wish to have the pre-wedding engagement shoot, you do not have to take it, however I would highly recommend going for it! The engagement shoot is a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera as a couple before your big day.
Not only that but it also means that your wedding day won't be the first time we've worked together, and I can get to know you and your style so that I can reflect this in how I capture your love story! If you would like to have the engagement shoot outside of the York area, that's no problem at all however there will be an additional cost depending on the distance. I'd love to chat about this with you, so please do get in touch.
DO YOU TAKE FORMAL GROUP PHOTOS TOO?
Yes, I am very happy to take formal group photographs, however I ask if this can be organised and compiled into a small list prior to the wedding day. I would also recommend keeping to a lower number of organised group photographs, often around 8-12 groups, otherwise it ends up taking a lot of precious time from your special day.
WHEN & HOW DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
You will receive 500+ carefully selected and edited, high-resolution, digital photographs on a wooden usb, ready for you to share. I will post the package containing your photographs to your home address within 6 weeks after the wedding, however during busy seasons it may take up to 8 weeks.
Digital files are great, but there's nothing like pulling out an album full of your favourite photos and remembering such wonderful memories. This is why I also offer and highly recommend asking me about the albums, prints, and photobooks that I work closely with the best printers to provide.
WHO'S PART OF THE TEAM, IS IT JUST YOU?
I [Rhi] am the main photographer of the business, I am the one who will be responding to your emails, editing your photos and making sure that you are fully satisfied with this service, however, my wonderful husband, Kieran, is the second shooter of the company. He often works quite close with the best man on the day when it comes to organising group photographs and snaps away when I'm pre-occupied with the bride and groom.
HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?
I'm happy to travel anywhere in the UK or even abroad! Package prices will vary depending on how far I need to travel (outside of North Yorkshire), so please get in touch for a quote!
