I love wedding albums. You'll always be able to look through them. Even if your phone dies, you lose the laptop charger, or the WiFi goes down. Digital stuff is fab, but sometimes, analog wins!
My couples love wedding albums, too. Whether it's when they first see my sample albums during our initial meeting, or when they open their very own wedding album after we've lovingly chosen the images and layouts together. They're a bit special.
I only offer Folio albums, one of the top album companies in the UK, and an utterly lovely bunch of people to boot! Having paired with Folio for almost as long as I've been photographing weddings, it feels good knowing that the life of my couple's wedding photos is in such safe hands.
Well, you should absolutely get in touch and tell me all about the pair of you and your wedding day plans! Let me know about all the bonkers stuff you like, what makes you tick, what your latest ear worm is. All the stuff that makes you who you are.
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 some more details about the different photography collections available to you 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 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.
