Booked in and Feeling Unwell?


If you are feeling unwell and have any flu-like symptoms please let me know, I kindly request that any photography sessions are postponed and I will be happy to rearrange any sessions booked.

I want to reassure all my clients that if in the event I were unable to attend your photography session or wedding due to the virus or self-isolation, I have senior lead photographers on my team who I can call on to step in my place. They have been hand picked by me and trained to shoot in the Chloe May style. All post production the final delivery of the gallery will be done under the Chloe May brand so the final product will meet the same standard.
