I’m a wedding photographer working across Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Hampshire with more than 15 years of experience of telling the wedding stories of the couples I share the day with. If you’re planning a wedding, your head is probably swimming with information from photographers and package options.  So I keep it simple, just two packages depending on how long you want me to be with you on your wedding day…  Of course, you’re welcome to get in touch if you would like to talk over creating something unique to you.

  • Professional and Experienced Wedding Photographer

  • Mix of Portrait and Reportage Photography

  • Relaxed and Natural Style

  • Fully Edited Image Gallery on Memory Stick after the Wedding

  • Full Range of Albums Available

Engagement Photo Shoot Crawley Down East Grinstead

Engagement Photo Shoot

A free engagement shoot at my studio in Crawley Down (in West Sussex) is included with every package.  You can have it as soon as you book and use some images for your wedding invitations / signature frame guest book / anything else you can think of to use photos for or you can wait until nearer to the time and just do it because you want to get pictures of you together.  Either way, it’s a good way for us to get to know each other, chat about your wedding photography plans, practice a little wedding posing (amongst other things) and of course get some great photos of the two of you.  You can choose your favourite image to download for free that you can print and distribute as you wish and of course buy any others that take your fancy. There’s no sales meeting to attend – just view and order from your private online gallery.

On Your Wedding Day

Here you have a choice – coverage can start with the bridal party preparations.  Now before you recoil in horror at the thought of a photographer being there while you are getting ready, we’re only talking about the last bit of preparations (about an hour and half).  This is generally the fun bit where everyone is putting finishing touches to hair and make up and getting all dressed up and ready to go.  I just mix in with you girls – I can help out with doing up fiddly necklaces and shoe buckles, fetching and carrying, providing advice and reassurance where required, and generally joining in the fun.  But I do it all with a camera in my hand and capture the story unfolding.  That said, if you really don’t want coverage of this time, it’s not obligatory – you can choose for me to arrive just before your ceremony instead.

Then I leave the girls alone and shoot off to meet the boys at the ceremony venue, to capture guest arrivals, and of course be waiting for the arrival of the bridal party.  I capture the ceremony as it happens (well obviously) and then any photography you would like at your reception – a mix of formal groups, traditional shots, reportage / candid photography of your guests having a great time and a little time alone with the two of you to get some great pictures of you as a couple.  We finish off with a ‘fake the cake’ shot just before your wedding breakfast is due to begin, where we pose and stage the cake cutting.  Then I leave you be to enjoy the rest of your day without me (sniffle).

After your Wedding

Your finished image collection will consist of a set of individually edited and enhanced photos of your day’s story, presented to you on USB memory stick (about two weeks after your wedding).  They are at print resolution and sized at 9″x6″ so you can print as many as you want and distribute them as you wish.

Although I don’t include an album in either of my packages, I can offer a full range from traditional overlay style to more modern coffee table / magazine layouts.  You’re welcome to talk to me about the options available after your wedding if you’d like to.

What does Wedding Photography Cost?

The bit you’ve been hanging on for.  So coverage from bridal preparations through to when you sit down to your wedding breakfast with all the images at print resolution on disk is £750.  If you would just like coverage from your ceremony through to your wedding breakfast then the price is £500.  

The deposit required is £150 and the balance is due two weeks before your wedding date.  Your booking is confirmed as soon as you have completed the online booking form and I have received your deposit.  Then we have a chat the week before the big day (I like your wedding to my next wedding so I have all of your details and plans fresh in my head), to create a rough plan for the day and finalise all the timings.

Full Range of Wedding Albums and Presentation Options

I don’t include an album within my standard package although you will receive a fully edited gallery of all your images on memory stick at print quality.  However, if you would like to look at professional presentation options for your wedding photographs, I can work with any of the industry suppliers to create you any kind of album – from traditional overlay albums, to magazine type albums to albums that feature a built in screen for your wedding video. Just get in touch after your wedding to talk things over.
