If you’re planning a wedding, your head is probably swimming with information from photographers and package options.  So I keep it simple, one package, one price…  Of course, you’re welcome to get in touch if you would like to talk over creating something unique to you.

Engagement 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…

Coverage starts with the bridal party preparations.  Now before you recoil in horror at the thought of a photographer being there while you are getting ready, just go with me on this one.  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 won’t be there first thing in the morning when you get out of the shower.  Secondly, you can think of me as a sort of extra bridesmaid (that you didn’t have to buy a dress for). 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.  I am not scary at all.  I promise. That said, if you really don’t want coverage of this time, it’s not obligatory.

Then I leave the girls alone and shoot off to meet the boys at the ceremony venue, usually aiming to get there about 40 minutes before the ceremony begins. We have time then to say hello and do ‘boy photos’ before grooms and ushers have to get on with their duties and the serious business of getting married.  I’m then there 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.

I’ll also prepare you a slideshow of the day’s highlights set to music which is a perfect way to share an edited version of your wedding photos with your friends and family.   If you’d like to see a sample of this to see what I mean, just click here and your wish will be granted.

The Price…

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.  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.

Advance Notice: My package price will increase from £650 to £750 from the 1st January 2017. Obviously this won’t affect bookings made with deposits paid before this date.
