– Frequently Asked Questions –

Can we meet you before booking?

Definitely, I am always happy to meet and hear your plans for the day!  Any questions you have can be answered in person.  


Although based in Cornwall I love destination weddings - Las Vegas and NZ have been my highlights so far!  Please mention when enquiring for a bespoke quote. 


Travel is included in all Cornwall weddings.  Outside Cornwall a mileage charge will be added.

Are Engagement Shoots included?

Engagement shoots are included in my 10 hours Full Wedding day package. They are are a really lovely opportunity for you to celebrate your engagement and capture who you are now!  Also it's nice to relax and get comfortable with me and my camera, one less thing to worry about before the big day!  They can be added on to any collection.

How much is the booking fee and how do we book you?

I work on a first come, first serve basis, once the retainer is paid and your contract signed, your wedding date is firmly secured.

A booking retainer fee of £200 takes your date off my availability list. As soon as this is received, your booking is confirmed and I’ll send you an invoice and receipt for your non-refundable deposit. Full payment is required a minimum of 30 days prior to the wedding.

What experience do you have?

I am a professionally trained, experienced and award winning press photographer.  With over 16 years working for newspapers and magazines in the UK and New Zealand, Weddings have been a natural progression for me - blending my candid photojournalism with my love of creative portraiture, is a dream job!


I chose Wild and Free Photography because I really do believe that 'all good things are wild and free'.  And I believe the best photographs reflect this, capturing life in all its crazy untamed glory!  My favourite photographs always show some combination of emotion, spontenaity, interraction and nature if possible. 

Are you insured?

Yes I hold full Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance as part of my professional photography cover.

Do you offer Wedding Albums?

Yes, I offer beautiful fine-art wedding albums as an optional extra to all packages.  Please enquire for album options and pricing.  I also offer a Booking Discount on these to all new clients when they book me. 

How much photoshopping do you do?

I plan to get your image right when I take it.  But if a fly lands on your nose in an otherwise amazing photo - I'll zap it (I hate flies!).  Other extensive photoshopping can be farmed out to a professional retoucher at ££ per image, if you would like to go further (if say you want to remove a guest). 

How long before my images are ready?

It's usually between 4-6 weeks before your final edited and presented images are ready.  Although sometimes longer during the busy summer months, I will advise if so.
