Investment in your wedding memories
Hi there! I provide a tailored, professional and friendly service to ensure you have the photographs of your wedding day to treasure for a lifetime.
Naturally everyone looks at the costs, but I'd also ask you to think about the service you will receive and the benefits of investing in an experienced photographer to capture the most important day of your lives. Please have a look at the feedback page and you'll see the lovely comments previous couples have made and which I truly appreciate.
Thanks for considering me to take your wedding photographs and if you would like further information, please contact me.
I've been capturing weddings for over ten years now. During that time I've gained loads of experience which will ensure that your wedding photos are exactly what you want.
The photography is tailored to meet each couple's needs, with an offer of different styles of photography such as candid and natural photos, as well as 'reportage', capturing the story of your wedding day. Many people find the formal group photos can be a chore, but I aim to make them fun and keep people engaged. The most important photos are those of you, the happy couple to provide you with lasting memories of your best day!
From experience I can assist and guide you with ideas, locations for your photos, backdrops and the number of group photos needed to allow plenty of time for the less formal, fun and spontaneous moments. I am known for working with the venue and other service providers to ensure everything runs smoothly, so you can focus on enjoying your special day!
What is Included?
We will work together to plan your wedding photography, with meetings and conversations as often as you need them. By the time of your wedding day I'll have everything covered. Couples can contact me at any time and will always receive a prompt response.
All packages include a rehearsal at your wedding venue(s) and I'll take some trial photos, which you get to keep. I find this helps the couple to be more relaxed for their wedding photos.
All your images are edited professionally by myself. After the excitement of your wedding day you'll want the photos as soon as possible. Rest assured you will have some samples within a day or two and usually all the edited photos within a couple of weeks. Often it is much quicker, but I never compromise quality for speed - your wedding photos are too important!
They will be provided on an engraved wooden memory stick, in a matching presentation box, with multiple copies of each image, in different file sizes for printing and electronic use. You'll get to keep all the images to share with family and friends.
You will also have a password protected online gallery of your wedding photographs. For those who can't be at your wedding or who live a distance away you can share the password and they can relive your wedding day!
