I am an established wedding photographer, having been in business since 2011. I photograph with my partner Martin meaning that we can capture your wedding from two angles. Martin is on hand as a ‘crowd herder’ for the formal pictures and also usually meets the Groom before the ceremony to get some pictures while everybody awaits the arrival of the Bride.
I do not offer packages, I charge for the time that you want me with you. If you get in touch, please tell me what time your ceremony is and if you want getting ready pictures. If you do want getting ready pictures, I usually suggest that I come to you up to two hours before your ceremony time. In the event that you want me earlier, I’ll come earlier, in the event you don’t want that aspect of your day covered, I usually suggest that I will be at the ceremony location about 30mins before ceremony time. Please also let me know what time you want us to finish and I can supply you with a quote quite quickly.
We are fully insured and offer payment over three installments, the supply of all pictures on an on-line gallery along with the supply of two USB’s of all your images without copyright restriction. There is no additional cost for the use of a second photographer.
I don’t routinely supply albums as they are time-consuming and therefore costly. However, if you would like an album supplied, this is something I can quote for separately.
Choosing a wedding photographer is not easy – it’s something you’ll probably have little or no experience of and it seems that we all offer the same thing for wildly differing prices. All I can suggest is that you meet with at least three and (cost aside) chose the person you think you will be happy to spend eight hours (or more/less) with.
I normally don’t charge for travel to and from your venue(s), however, if travel time is over 1hr from my address, there may be an additional charge.
I look forward to hearing from you.
We mainly take candid/informal pictures, but always include formal pictures from a list supplied by the Bride and Groom. You might want a picture of your Aunts/Uncles - without a bit of guidance, this group of people might not come together naturally, so we organise guests for half an hour or so, to get that list completed. We are unobtrusive, blend in when we need to, but are also on hand to organise things like the confetti/ bouquet throw and that must have group shot of you and all your guests.
Weddings are so emotional: Whether it is a poorly dad who struggles to walk his daughter down the aisle. Whether it is dad who is no longer with us, but has a candle lit in his memory. Whether it is a couple who have their pets at their wedding. Whether it is a dad in a wheelchair who, with a little help, manages to stand to give his speech. Whether it is a bride who is given away by her mum because dad is no longer around. Whatever the kind of wedding we photograph - we get to witness some truly amazing moments and I've found myself wiping a tear away on more than one occasion.
I always suggest that you meet at least three photographers before you book anybody. This will allow you to compare prices and what is on offer, it also allows you to meet the photographers. For the Bride, if you have somebody to photograph your Bridal Prep, you will spend two hours or so with somebody who will be fully in your personal space. Make sure you like the person you book. If you are having your wedding in the spring/autumn/winter, consider that it might rain, and if it does, will your venue have a large bright/suitable space to have your wedding photographs? While I always attend any venue where I will be photographing a wedding to consider space for a rainy day, there are limits of what can be done if the only space available is small and dark.
Prepared to travel up to 1hr to venue, could charge for much more than 1hr travel.
