It is totally understandble that you will have lots of questions for all of your prospoective wedding suppliers. Below are some answers to the most commonly asked questions I recieve.
If your question isn’t answered here dont worry! That’s what our intial chat in person or over zoom (if you’re not a London-based couple) is for.
DO YOU DO VIDEOGRAPHY AS WELL?
No. I have spent many years learning and developing my photographic skills and continue to grow and incorporate new ideas and techniques year on year. Specialising purely in photography enables me to deliver a high-quality service and focus on delivering images that truly reflect the individuality of the couples I am lucky enough to work with. I know a variety of excellent videographers who I am always happy to recommend and work alongside on the day. There are some photographers who offer to film all or part of your day, in addition to providing photographic coverage; please do ask to see examples of their work beforehand to ensure that this a genuine element of their skillset and not simply a way of them securing or up- selling your booking.
DO YOU JUST DO GAY / LGBTQ WEDDINGS?
As a gay man it’s incredible that I can now capture weddings for members of the LGBTQ community and I’m lucky enough to be able to say that I am shooting more LGBTQ weddings every year. I also feel strongly that it is really important that LGBTQ couples find it easy to identify and book inclusive wedding suppliers for their special day as the wedding industry in general is a little bit slow when it comes to embracing and celebrating diversity. I therefore make a conscious effort to ensure that all prospective clients know instantly that I run a business based on inclusion and welcoming all members of society.
Does this mean I don’t shoot or don’t enjoy shooting straight couples? Absolutely not!! Who you love, how old you are, what you look like or what your faith is have no impact on the customer service you receive from me. As I have said elsewhere, all I ask from my couples is to be 100% themselves so I can beautifully capture who you are and not who you think you should be.
Everyone is welcome and will be made to feel so.
WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DON'T WANT LOTS OF POSED PHOTOS?
I love weddings where the only images that you want me to capture are 100% natural moments that unfold without any intervention from me.
If this sounds like music to your ears then we can of course take this approach to your wedding photography.
Usually, however we intersperse this coverage with some quickly captured group shots (pre-planned) and some romantic couple shots with minimal posing. Think walking hand-in-hand, a quick cuddle and a smooch in front of a beautiful backdrop. Super simple stuff.
It’s totally your call and the type of photography coverage does not imapct the quality and quantity of the images you recieve.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE ILL ON THE DAY?
I have been in the industry long enough to know a great collection of professional photographers in my area who are happy to be contacted at the drop of a hat, should I not be available on the day. I will endeavour to find a replacement of a similar style and approach. It takes a lot to keep me from a wedding though (no man-flu fears here).
HAVE YOU PHOTOGRAPHED AT OUR VENUE BEFORE?
I have photographed at many venues across London and the UK but if I have yet to shoot at your wedding venue that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Photographing a venue for the first time allows me to see things with fresh eyes and come up with creative ways to work within the grounds and buildings. I always love to visit new venues with my couples beforehand to plan where we can take some stunning images and come up with lots of exciting shot ideas. Do not let lack of venue experience put you off booking a photographer that in all other ways seems perfect for you.
HOW DO WE BOOK AND WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Hooray! That’s my favourite question to be asked. Booking is very straightforward, and can all be done online. Once you have decided that I’m the man with the cam for you, I will send you three documents; an invoice, a booking form, and a wedding contract. Once the invoice has been paid, the booking form completed, and the contract signed it’s official! I’m all yours for the date of your wedding.
So hit that button below and let’s get the ball rolling.
We also gave him the challenge of photographing us with my horse and 2 dogs alongside 200+ guests! We received the photos and slideshow super quickly (1 month!) with Ross presenting us with the USB in a beautiful box. I cannot recommend Ross high enough! He is truly talented and such a lovely person to be around. Thank you for giving us a gift that will last a lifetime.

I knew I would be asking Ross to take my wedding photos before my husband even proposed. I knew he would completely understand that there were certain ‘traditions’ that I didn’t want at my wedding and that included photos.
Ross is great at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and is as able to capture your wedding parties’ attention for group photos as he is inconspicuous and therefore able to get some fab relaxed shots. Of the few formal pictures we wanted Ross completely understood what we were looking for and his photos are the first thing any guest to our house sees. I recommend him 100%.

So I set my groom the task to pick the photographer and what a job he did! From start to finish we felt at ease with Ross. He took the time to meet us at home and the venue and listen to our love story, so he really could take the best photos of our day! And what photos we have, they are incredible, he didn’t disappoint. I can see from the results the passion he had in taking the photos and talent in getting the perfect shot, capturing our day from start to finish! I couldn’t recommend Ross enough, thank you.
