Of course you’re going to get wedding photos, but what will I cover on the day? A wedding photography packages covers a variety of elements from your wedding. It includes bridal morning prep, your ceremony, group shots and portraiture (if required), your wedding breakfast/speeches and evening reception until 9pm.
You may well have some special requirements and I’d be only to happy to discuss those with you ahead of your big day. I’ll endeavor to meet any and all your photography needs and ensure all the key elements of your day are covered.
My Purpose as a documentary style photographer is to bring your event back to life and make you smile every time you look at your images. The number of pictures I deliver varies depending on the size of the wedding party and the duration of the celebrations. You can expect to receive the completed catalogue via an online gallery two to three weeks after you’ve tied the knot.
These days it’s common for clients to want an online gallery of their wedding photos so I include this as part of my single price. Each clients gallery has its own unique password and download key to ensure your pictures are kept safe. There’s a six month expiry date on the gallery from the date of upload. From your private gallery page you’ll be free to share them, order prints or download images as you wish.
I’ll upload you wedding photos in print-ready form to an online gallery. My gallery service has print ordering built in. Simply pick the image you want a print of, select the size and the number of copies, hit the Paypal button and off it’ll go to a dedicated print lab. There are myriad options for you to choose from basic prints to huge canvases.
Making a full-fledged video of your big day might seem like an attractive prospect and a great way to make the moments for your wedding forever. But it is usually costly and requires multiple videographers.
You could end up with several camera people hovering over you, which might make you feel like you’ve got the paparazzi at your wedding. The extra bodies can be very intrusive for you and your guests as well as impede your photographer’s ability to shoot events naturally.
So, is there an alternative? The answer is yes – it’s called a Video Slide-Show or Photofilm.
Using a compact mobile audio recorder, I can capture snippets of high definition audio from throughout your day. These could include: the morning prep, the ceremony, the speeches and so on. I then combine this audio with a video slide-show of images taken from your wedding photos being sure to the audio chronologically aligns with the images.
The idea is that you won’t know I’m recording so you’ll be your natural self. With the exception of the speeches, my intention is to capture the atmosphere of an entire room rather than specific conversations.
I have two passions in life, one is photography and the other is to travel. I love to travel – my first ever wedding booking was in Italy. I understand how hard it can be to find a documentary style event photographer outside the UK. That is why I offer this optional service to couples.
In addition, I also understand that you’ll want peace of mind on your wedding day. Likewise to my UK wedding packages, I like to get to know you. I believe this helps put your mind at ease as well as giving us both a chance to learn about each other. Please be aware however that my travel and lodging costs will be in addition to my usual fee.
You may prefer an alternative to the online-only copy of your wedding album, therefore I also offer a personalised USB sustainably sourced beech memory key. This costs between £30 and £40 depending on the memory size required, plus the delivery. Each key comes in its own little wooden matchbox with your names engraved on the front and a little banner from me. Cute!
You’re newly engaged and walking on air. You can hardly contain your excitement and you feel like you’ve fallen in love all over again. Wouldn’t it me amazing to capture those emotions in image form? Engagement pictures are a useful way to announce your engagement or a lovely image to put on the wedding invitations. Not only this, but it means that this special moment is captured forever.
For this service, I offer two options – you can come to me or I’ll come to the location of your choosing and we’ll spend a couple of hours shooting. Here again, I won’t pose or direct you. My aim is to capture your feelings for one another, not to model you in a lifeless pose with a cheesy grin.
