There are a few common questions people often have. hopefully, you can find your answers here but please don't hesitate to get in touch with any further questions!
(you can also find more wedding-specific questions here!)
Where are you based and do you travel?
I am based in Scotland, and travel all over mainland Scotland for weddings! I’m also not opposed to travelling further afield (provided travel and accommodation is covered) - destination wedding anyone..?!
What can I expect from my session?
When it comes to your shoot, I want nothing more than for you to feel relaxed and at ease, no matter what the occasion!
Whether it's a wedding or a portrait session, I want you wearing whatever makes you feel most comfortable and confident, and coming with a willingness to show me your true selves. I may direct you slightly in order to capture you in your truest form, but most of the time I will float and capture those little moments created by you.
How long will my session last for?
I generally spend around 1-2 hours shooting on smaller sessions, with the occasional coffee break if the Scottish elements are against us!
For weddings, these will either be half or full day sessions. I want to give you some time to get comfortable in front of the camera - no awkward smiles here!
What should I wear?
This is one of the most common questions I get asked from clients booking with me! As your photographer, I want you to look your best and feel your best, whatever the occasion. My biggest advice is to wear what makes you happy and confident, so that all you have to do is enjoy yourself!
If you're still a little stuck, I highly recommend sticking to neutral tones and solid colours/simple patterns. If shooting with a partner, co-ordinating colours can also be a great way to tie your outfits together without looking too matchy!
How will I receive my photos?
Once I have reviewed and edited your images, you will be sent a link to a private online gallery where you can view full quality images for download. For weddings, you will also receive a USB stick with all of your edited images.
Do I have access to the unedited/RAW images?
I believe the whole process of photography is important to creating the perfect moment; from the initial snap right to the final touches, everything I do is carefully thought about to create the perfect photo which shows you in your truest form. Therefore, I do not distribute original images.
Will my photos appear on this website?
Absolutely not if you don't want them to! I will only ever share images on the website/social media with full permission from yourselves. I totally appreciate that some moments are too special for the whole world to see!
Do you shoot for businesses/events?
Yes! Feel free to get in touch for a tailored quote!
Do you have insurance?
I sure do! I have insurance for public liability, professional indemnity and all my professional camera equipment, including equipment breakdown.
How does COVID-19 affect you?
This is a hugely uncertain time for everyone, and I want to do everything I can to help those who have booked or are looking to book with myself. I will always operate in accordance to the Scottish Government guidelines, so sadly some shoots may need to be postponed. I am happy to chat through this with you - we need to work with what we have!
Depending on travel restrictions, some shoots may still be able to go ahead, following social-distancing guidelines. Please don't hesitate to get in touch and we can have a chat.
Thank you for your understanding!
