— Are the images really all included?
Yes! Almost every other studio and photographer charges you per photo in addition to the shoot, meaning that end up spending hundreds of pounds more than you thought. All of my prices include all the photos we take, so there's nothing extra to pay on the day.
— 100+ images seems a lot...
Part of the magic of good photography is taking many variations of any one pose so that you have options when choosing ones to use.
Unless you’re a very experienced model, it takes time and lots of photos and direction from me to arrive at really good ones - particularly so when there are two of you in the photo. The photos always get better and better as the shoot goes on, as you relax and look more and more confident. So the packages are designed with this in mind, and it takes that long and many shots in order to arrive at the really great ones you’d choose to use.
Most studios only let you have a few of the photos, but I find that people really like having the outtakes too, as there are often lots they like and want to use. So you won't miss out on any - you'll get all the images we take, all included in the price with nothing extra to pay on the day.
— What happens on the day?
When you arrive, we'll have a quick chat about what photo styles and ideas would best suit you and your needs. We'll do some warm-up shots to get you both comfortable in front of the camera, and then proceed with the shoot.
With each outfit/idea there'll be a different lighting setup, and you'll get a chance to review the pics we've just taken to make sure you're happy before moving on to the next look.
Most people I work with have never had a shoot before and arrive a bit nervous. That's normal! I'll give you tons of direction all the way through and make it very easy and fun.
— What about a make-up artist?
I do have a separate Makeover section, but if it's important that the photos feel like 'you', then it's much better to keep it natural and do your own make-up. (By all means, arrange to visit a hair salon beforehand if need be.)
I've been doing photoshoots since 2002 and people always assume they'll benefit from a make-up artist, but photographic make-up feels much heavier than you're used to, and even a very minimal look will feel really 'caked on' and you'll feel it made you look older. Doing your own make-up is not only much cheaper, but you will look and feel much more like yourself, and more comfortable and natural as a result.
I recommend the Standard or Deluxe package because they include some professional retouching, and retouching is what fixes skin blemishes and the things that people typically hope make-up will improve, but in a much more subtle and natural looking way.
— Can we shoot outdoors?...
As long as there is daylight and it's not raining, we can do some or all of the photos outdoors in the area outside my studio. It's right next to the River Thames. This is great for photos with a very natural feel.
If you want to do the whole shoot outdoors somewhere further afield, such as in a park or at famous London landmarks, I have a specific Outdoors package - ask me for details.
Couples Photo Gallery
These are photos of couples. We can also do individual shots of you both if you want, as part of the shoot. To see lots of examples of those, please see the individual galleries on the female and male pages.
