Before your eyes go darting off to find the price, let me talk a little about what it is you’re actually getting. After all, it’s not like you’re just buying a new pair of socks, is it!
Your wedding day will be one of the happiest days of your lives and one you’ll look back on forever. So I’m sure you'll want to make sure you get just the right photographer to capture your day perfectly.
I limit the number of weddings I photograph each year because each one is more than just a job to me. I'll often help out with recommendations and suggestions for the day. And where possible I always meet up with couples before the wedding. Taking a fixed number of bookings allows me to give each wedding my undivided attention. See. I can tell you’re feeling special already!
Throughout your wedding, I’m not just skirting around the edges of your guests, picking people off from a distance, sniper style. I’m in the thick of it, chatting with your friends and family, making them feel comfortable. More often than not, I get told that people didn’t even realise I was the photographer and this allows me to capture some wonderfully genuine moments.
Over the years, I've taken note of the most popular elements people added to their wedding photography bookings and put them into three collections.
Each collection includes the following:
Prices start from £1500.
Special rates are available for midweek weddings.
Well, you should definitely get in touch and tell me all about the pair of you and your wedding day plans!
There are a couple of ways you can do this. Firstly, I have a nifty contact form that you can fill in. My highly trained team of Net Hamsters™ will then whisk your message over to my inbox. Click here to visit my contact page.
If you'd rather flex your writing skills and go at it freestyle, then here's my e-mail address - firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to write as much as you want. I love it when people have plenty to say!
Once I've heard from you, I'll send you over a copy of my online brochure with more details about the collections on offer and ways to choose the one to suit you.
I’m based in Derbyshire but also have a base in London which makes it easy for me to travel to weddings all over the UK. In the last few years I’ve photographed weddings in the Netherlands (a rather lavish wedding in a castle) and Normandy (a wonderful French village wedding). So basically, no wedding is too far!
Each wedding is different, and having shot weddings across the UK and Europe, I know that travel expenses vary. There’s no need to worry about there being any surprise additional costs being tagged on after the wedding, I’ll be sure to let you know a full breakdown of any travel expenses when you get in touch.
When you’re ready to book, all you need to do is give me a quick call or e-mail to say that you’d like to book. I’ll then send you a digital booking form to complete and return.
A £250 booking fee is required to complete the booking. Details of how to pay this fee will be included in the booking form. And that’s all there is to it. The remaining balance is due 28 days before your wedding date.
The number of photographs I take at a wedding can vary depending on the number of guests, the weather, how long your wedding day lasts and how hard the band makes people dance! I realise this doesn’t answer your question, so to give you a rough figure, you could expect somewhere between 350-450 photos.
In short, yes. Wedding photography has moved on from being mostly about lots of posed shots, but a wedding is a perfect opportunity to create some natural portraits with your close family and friends. I’m sure you won’t want to spend too long grinning at the camera, so for 5 or 6 carefully chosen groups, we’ll be done in around 20 minutes
If you’d like help with deciding what these groups should be, I’m happy to work through the list with you to make sure you get everything you’re after.
This question elicits the same reaction in me as the ‘What style music do you play?’ question I got asked when I played in bands. It’s a tricky one because to me, it’s just what I do. Quite often, there’s no conscious thinking behind the style, it’s just something that’s developed naturally over time.
When I started, I really liked shooting in a way that was ‘fly on the wall’ that showed a slice of life. Since then, I’ve worked on not just capturing natural moments, but also telling a story. I’m a huge fan of movies and books and have taken inspiration from the techniques filmmakers and authors use to tell their stories. So when you receive your photographs, they’re more like a visual story of your wedding than just a collection of individual moments.
