Today's magical moment, tomorrow's treasured memory.
I don’t just offer a point & shoot service. I offer the whole experience.
I like to offer the couple a pre wedding shoot at a location of their choice, this enables us to get to know each other and you will be more relaxed in front of my camera on the big day. I will give you a disk of the images from this to do with as you wish.
Having an experienced photographer with you all day means you don’t need to worry about anything being missed & can enjoy your day without the stress!
The images will be hand edited with a preview with you within days after the wedding.
Images are all about the details & the moments. Starting with the hair and make up and all of those fun moments between the bride and her bridesmaids.
There’s something special about the dress hanging before the excitement of the day, or the wedding ring before it’s worn, the beautiful engagement ring which started the wedding process many months ago. Even the bridesmaids in dressing gowns and drinking champagne right through to everyone all dressed ready to leave.
I normally start about 2 hours before to capture all of these amazing moments. Without interfering with your day, I’ll quietly capture moments as they happen. One of our favourite things to do in the morning is take a photo of the engagement ring, It’s a perfect image to start off the couple’s wedding album.
These are just as fun as the bridal preparations! Although it’s not so much about the hair and the getting ready – it’s more about the final touches and the fun and joy between the groom and his ushers and best man.
I usually spend less time with the groom as they tend to have a lot of jobs to do the morning of the wedding. However even with less time we work quickly to get beautiful images using natural light or flash set up.
During The Ceremony
Whether you’ve planned a large ceremony or small intimate ceremony, every last detail is just as important as the last.
Photographs from the front are kept to a minimum to respect the wedding ceremony, but where we do take images we capture all the emotion and moments of the couple getting married.
I rarely have to use flash during ceremonies, even when there’s low lighting. my cameras are absolutely amazing in low light situations so there’s no need to worry! And if flash is needed, we will discuss it with you beforehand.
Post Ceremony Pictures
I’ll be sure to capture some wonderful group shots along with the precious little moments you might have missed like children playing or guests chatting.
I will discuss the group photo list beforehand so there’s no confusion on the day. I will work with the toastmaster/master of ceremonies or usher/best man to ensure a speedy photo shoot so people can continue with their drinks and socialising. The last thing you want is to spend all your time going through a long, slow and painful list of images or worse, forgetting someone and run out of time. We want a stress free day for you!
Couple Photo Shoot
This is my favourite part of the day. It’s a wonderful time where you can slip away from the attention for a while, enjoy some intimate time as a newly married couple while capturing some breathtaking images.
You may have a favourite place to go within the wedding venue or elsewhere and we’ll happily capture your first romantic moments together as a married couple.
The engagement session prior to the wedding, allows you to feel more relaxed about ‘posing’ and you can just enjoy your photo shoot with your photographer. During the engagement photo shoot you will learn all the poses so on the day you can just enjoy being together without even thinking about the camera or worrying about how to pose.
The Wedding Reception
There are so many more moments to capture throughout the day and evening. wedding guests, all of the laughter and the tears. The cake cutting is The speeches are an amazing opportunity to capture the emotions of the classic photo, perfect for the album. The first dance, a beautiful moment between the newly married couple with all of their friends and family watching
And all of those wonderful candid moments in between.
Guest Comment Board
Another service I provide is to take some pre-wedding shots to put on a guest comment board as in the photograph below.
This is something we can discuss at our pre-wedding meeting.
The cost for a full days wedding photography including the pre wedding shoot is only £900. This covers bride preparations up to the first dance. Images will be supplied on a memory stick and also an online account for you to view. If other family members want a memory stick of their own these can be bought for £50.00.
I also provide luxurious wedding albums , photo books, coffee table books, wall displays using 5 or 10 mm foam board, there are too many options to list here so please ask and i’m sure it can be done.
I like to encourage the happy couple to be part of the album design process so it is perfect for you.
I look forward to hearing from you to start planning your special day.
