I love working with people to capture the special times of their lives. I am always proud when I get to share in an event or a portrait session, knowing I'm helping to preserve a once-in-a-lifetime moment.
I am a full time professional photographer, with over 30 years experience.
My simple pricing gives you the best deal possible - and helps you manage your Wedding budget.
The only thing I ask you to decide before your Wedding is how many hours you need me there for:
A minimum is usually 4 hours, which starts with the bride's arrival and runs through the service (where permitted), then continues outside the Wedding venue and at the Reception venue, through to a staged cake-cutting. For this coverage, your only commitment to me is £500. That gets you an unlimited number of images (at least 100), fully edited/retouched and hosted on a secure website. You also get the full set of images on a USB drive. You are free to share, print and upload these however you please - I do not add any watermarks, or place any restrictions on how they are used.
Extending my coverage to 6 hours moves the price to £550. Added before the normal package, this will allow for pictures of the bride's prep, the groom's prep, or even both. Alternatively, the time can be added after the normal 4 hours, to cover speeches, first dances and the cake-cutting proper.
The one thing I won't do, is try to split the extra 2 hours either side - it simply doesn't work. If you do want the full day covering, then you need to book me for 8 hours (which is still only £600 in total).
I don't ask you to commit to anything else.
If you prefer to book a package, including a photobook, an album, or a set number of prints, I can show you some example prices, or I will produce a bespoke quotation for exactly what you want.
I also offer prints, both framed and unframed, and also albums and photo books separately.
These can be added at any time you like, which could be before the Wedding, straight after the honeymoon, or even years afterwards. My guarantee of fair pricing is that your initial package includes the USB. I'd be delighted to work with you selecting print sizes and working out the best format for an album, but your own USB always means that you aren't tied to me - you are in control.
Pre-Wedding (or Engagement) shoots
I also do great deals on pre-wedding photography, which is a great way to capture some romantic pictures at a special location, without having to hire it!
It's also good for getting both of you accustomed to posing for photographs together, which makes you more relaxed on the big day itself.
From £100 including a USB, price may be slightly higher depending on travel time.
This is included as standard in the Platinum package. The pictures can be included as the opening chapter in your Wedding photo book if you wish. They can also be used to give your "save the day" or Wedding invites that special wow factor.
For brides to be, I offer a Boudoir photography experience. These are great for giving you confidence in your appearance and they have a real feel-good factor, together with producing a really special gift for your husband to be. You can contact me separately about this service, without booking it when you book your Wedding (or even if you aren't booking me for your Wedding). I have a separate portfolio of my boudoir photography, which I only show in printed form. These pictures will show you how tasteful boudoir photography is when done well, and will help you choose which style suits you. I always work within your comfort zones, and nudity doesn't have to be involved if you don't want it to be. The images are edited and then put onto a CD, DVD, or USB for you. Prints or photo books can also be ordered. You have total control of these images and your pictures will not be added to my portfolio. I bring my mobile studio to your home, where you have all your own clothes and make up to hand. I'm happy for you to be accompanied if you're happy, and you can even split the booking between you and a friend, or include it as part of your bridal shower.
From £50 including CD.
I have a fully mobile studio - including lighting, back drops, etc.
I can come to your own home (or anyhere you choose) and create wonderful photographs of you, your children, or a family group. Your pets can even be included if you wish.
I can include printed photographs, but you always get the digital files on a CD. From £30.
