Wedding Photography Details
Your wedding is unique. This means that what you want and/or expect from your photographs is also unique. Some couples prefer coverage of just the central aspects of their wedding day, while others are looking to have their entire day recorded. With this in mind I have put together a range of packages designed to suit most couples. However if you feel that the different options listed do not meet your specific requirements then simply let me know, then I can come up with a tailor made package to suit you. After all, it is your special day.

A couple of frequently asked questions
How many Photographs will I get?
I do not put a number of photographs in the package details. This is simply because I do not limit the number of images that you can have. I usually take somewhere in excess of 250 individual images** (i.e. not including repeats/duplicates) in each wedding and you will receive them all
on disc ready for printing. This is a bespoke service taking many hours and I will use professional editing software to edit the images as I feel will bring out the best in each photograph on your behalf.
** This quantity of images is based on packages 2 and 3 and is intended as a guide only. The actual number of images is variable due to the unique nature of your special day. Due to the time constraints of Package 1 the number of images may be reduced. Due to the increased time of Package 4, this is likely to more than double.
Why choose a professional photographer?
Your wedding is probably going to be the most expensive party you will throw, and it’s tempting to cut back on a few “luxuries” like hiring a professional photographer. But is it really a luxury? Can you afford not to?
Before you ask your amateur friend to shoot your wedding, ask yourself and your friend these questions:
(the same questions should be asked of many “cheap photographers” found on the internet)
Do you want to put tension in your friendship if the photos don’t come out as well as you hoped? Is it worth the awkwardness everytime you meet again, when images of your wedding photos flash in front of your eyes?
How much are you spending on everything else? From the cake, flowers, to the venue? Do you want to remember these expensive items properly? If you are spending hundreds on items that only lasts a few hours, then how much do you value a set of photographs that will be treasured for the rest of your life?
Does your friend have backup cameras, lenses, flashguns in case of problems with the main one? Accidents can happen and equipment can fail, backups are essential.
Is your friend willing to stay completely alcohol free for the whole day, and able to stay totally alert the whole time?
Do you want your friend to work through your wedding day rather than party with you? If he parties, then can you forgive yourself for compromising on the photos?.
Time and Abilities:
Is your friend willing and able to spend 40 hours at the computer editing the photos after your wedding? Then another 20 hours designing the final album? It’s a fact of modern photography that all photos are edited no matter how good the originals were. It’s quite common to have 40+ hours of editing performed on a set of wedding photos.
Has your friend shot a wedding by him or herself before? It’s one thing taking good landscapes, still life, or portraits, yet another thing being responsible for a fast moving wedding. Ask to see a wedding portfolio.
You will remember your wedding day through your photos in years to come. Do you want an ok set of memory or do you want a great set of memories?
Are you happy to settle with an off the shelf DIY sticky album?
Or would you like your wedding photos presented in professional quality albums?
Are they fully insured? Public liability insurance is a must!
