Frequently asked questions
What is your photography style?
I specialise in reportage (documentary-style, story-telling) photography and my approach is friendly, relaxed and completely unobtrusive. I capture moments as they unfold and work hard to ensure my clients feel completely at ease in front of my camera. Although I use a digital camera, I have refined my editing style to emulate the gorgeous look of film, which gives my photographs a truly timeless feel. I am in my element shooting outdoors in beautiful locations using soft natural light where possible – although, let’s be honest, we live in England and the weather is not always on our side! I have therefore mastered the art of finding beauty in darker spots and can capture stunning photographs with a little help from some well diffused artificial light too!
Where are you based?
I am based in a cute little village called Luckett, near Callington in Cornwall. Our home is on the bank of the river Tamar so I am right on the border between Devon and Cornwall – I am therefore perfectly placed to cover both counties. I grew up in Redruth and my Mum now lives near Truro so I stay with her when I am working a little further down in the heart of Cornwall.
How much do you charge?
You will find my standard package prices, along with details on what’s included on each of my services pages: Wedding & Engagement Photography, Maternity & Baby Photography, and Children & Family Photography. I also offer model call photoshoots from only £50, please have a peek at my blog for more info. I can also create bespoke packages with shorter sessions or fewer goodies, or include some special extras, depending on your budget. If you love my work and think we would be a good fit, please get in touch!
What is your approach with people that are camera shy?
I am one of those people so I get it! I am friendly and authentic so I am usually able to put people at ease in an instant. My whole process is as relaxed and organic as possible, I love nothing more than standing back and capturing the raw emotion of the moment with no fake smiles or awkward poses.
How long will I have to wait for my photographs?
This is a difficult one to answer! It depends on a number of factors from the time of year to the weather! I have a brand new editing workflow that means I can turn around an informal portrait shoot in as little as 2 weeks, although a full wedding at busy times of year can take up to 8 weeks.
Can you supply prints and albums?
Yes! I have spent a long time sourcing the most incredible quality suppliers of prints, usb memory sticks, presentation boxes and albums. Some of my packages already include some of these goodies but they are also available on an a la carte basis. I will be adding the list of available products and prices soon. In the meantime, please contact me for more information.
How can I book you?
Please contact me so I can check my availability. Once I have your details, I will send you a booking form / contract to complete and return with your booking fee. I will then send you a welcome pack and we will work together to plan the finer details for your wedding, event or portrait shoot. That’s when it gets exciting!
