Hey! Thanks for being here.
So – I shot at your venue, you created the floral arrangements, you made the cake, did hair/make-up, or you’re one of the many other lovely suppliers who help make weddings amazing. If you’re interested in using my photos, this is all the information you need.
I’m all about sharing my images with you – as long as the couple are too! A few ground rules, depending on what you want to use them for. One thing that applies to any use – you cannot edit the photo. No Photoshop or airbrushing, filters or that awful selective colour nonsense. I spend a lot of time editing to get every image just right in my signature style and sticking an Instagram filter on it would make me cry. (As well as being against copyright law.) I don’t mind the Instagram crop because it’s unavoidable (bloody Instagram!), but that’s about it.
Images are always provided to the couple first and this can be up to 8 weeks, please be aware of this when contacting me for images. May to September is an incredibly busy time (I’m sure it is for you as well), so please don’t be offended if I’m not the speediest in responding during this time.
I retain the copyright of all of my images. My couples don’t get commercial usage rights as I retain the copyright, so if you want to use my images you’ll need to come to me directly. When I let suppliers use my images I still retain the copyright.
Online Usage Information
Online usage (websites/blogs/social media) is FREE as long as there is a CLICKABLE linked credit to my website/social media on each page/post you are posting the image on. For Facebook a link to my page, Instagram a link to my Instagram profile and so on… (Hint: I’ve popped all the credits at the bottom of this page to make it easy for you).
Please let me know if you want images for this purpose and I’ll send you over gallery access. If you can’t credit me or want to use the images for your advertising – there is a paid option, just keep reading.
Advertising / Print / No Credit Usage Information
I’ve made it nice and easy if you want to use an image without a credit, for example in a magazine ad or for your own advertising, anything like that. It’s £25 per image and if you want 5 or more I’ll work out a bespoke cost.
Just ask if you have any questions or would like the paid option, my email is email@example.com. Come say hello!
These are the credits you’ll need for free image usage – remember, they must click through to the relevant page.
