Hopefully you are looking at my website because you would like your amazing memories of your wedding day captured in a complete and elegant way. I have a simple approach to pricing – just one package that gives you everything you need to do that, no fluff and no fillers. This package includes:
"I simply observe the beauty and meaning in events as they are about to happen and I frame them in a more impactful way - to reveal deeper characteristics, which might otherwise be missed."
This approach to photography means that I need to be unobtrusive and part of the furniture - interacting with guests as other guests would, to blend in.
There are times I do direct (during portraits). However, I shoot these in a fluid, relaxed and speedy way to encourage real and natural emotions - they are treated with as much care, skill and optimism as every other part of your story.
Don’t think of me as a “wedding photographer” but as a photographer that will come to your wedding and document it in it’s sincerest form from beginning to end, without aims to stage certain photos that I want for my own portfolio.
– Unlimited wedding day coverage, because a lot can happen after the first dance!
– A pre-wedding consultation via Skype to get to know you both and your plans for the big day
– Me, in the run up to your wedding I am there to help guide you through your planning to help you get the most out of your day
– Full license to print and share your images for you and your family and friends
– An online slideshow and gallery of your images, a private way to view and share your images with friends and family
– USB of fully edited colour images (450+) with black and white copies
– Travel and accommodation for England and Wales
If there is something else important to you that is missing here: gorgeous albums; multi-day weddings; overseas weddings; great second shooters; a pre-wedding shoot or stunning prints – don’t worry I do all of these, just ask.
Where do you shoot?
If I am available, I will shoot your wedding wherever and whenever it is.
Are you insured?
Yes. I have professional indemnity and public liability insurance up to £5million.
Do you charge extra for travel and accommodation?
If your wedding is outside of England & Wales I do charge for 'economy-standard' travel and accommodation.
What time do you arrive and when do you leave?
I start as early as you would like (the earliest ever was 6am) and I stay until the end of the party - I am there to capture your day. If I left immediately after the first dance I would miss a lot!
Can I share my images on social media?
Yes. They are your images of your wedding, you can do anything you like with them - except to say that you took them!
Will I receive High-Res images?
Yes - both high-resolution and social media sizes will be available for you to download.
What about black and white copies?
You will receive every image in both colour and black & white.
Can I have all of the RAW images you take?
I don't offer this. I typically take over six thousand images at a wedding (e.g to check exposure, calibration, or are part of a burst sequence to prevent blinks). I only edit and send you the keepers.
Do you take family group photos?
Yes. I recommend that you have as few as these as possible to allow you more time to enjoy the reception.
Can I have a second shooter?
Yes. I work with a lot of talented award winning photographers and we all second shoot for each other. You will get two photographers who are both capable of leading a wedding.
How much is a second shooter?
Can I buy an album after the wedding?
Yes. I can add an album to your package for a year after your wedding and I can work with you to sep up a gift register for your wedding album if you wish.
What happens if you can't make it to the wedding?
I am well connected in several communities for established wedding photographers. I will do my best to find you a replacement in any situation.
Do you back-up your images?
Absolutely. I back-up to spare memory while I shoot and make multiple on-site and off-site back-ups once your images are ingested. I recommend that you keep local back-ups of your images when you receive them (but I keep spares forever in case).
How do I secure the date in your diary?
Through payment of a £300 deposit.
When do I need to pay the final balance?
I will send the final balance invoice a month before the wedding date.
Do you take credit card payments?
