Choosing a wedding photographer can be a minefield and there are so many different photographers out there to suit all budgets and all personalities. Having all the information you need at your fingertips to make the right decision is essential. The important thing is that you choose the right photographer for you. So how do you go about this? Well, obviously having a good browse around the website of your potential chosen photographer is a good start, and as you have come this far, I hope to guide you in the right direction now to help you decide if I am the right photographer for you.
Firstly I should point out that although I am a full time wedding photographer, I do also do family shoots and portraits and if you are after this, I suggest you visit my portfolio to find out more information, or click on the “families” or “portraits” section at the top of the page. If you are after a wedding photographer then there are a few things I can tell you about my style of photography and how I go about photographing your day.
I am very relaxed and informal in my approach to your photography. I plan as much as I can before your big day to ensure that the photography fits in seamlessly with your wedding. I spend time getting to know you before hand so that you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible in front of my camera. I offer a complimentary engagement shoot as a way of getting to know you and as a way for you to get to know me and my camera a little better. If you book me, I shall send out a fully illustrated brochure detailing all the information you need in order to get the most out of your photography.
The investment is probably high up in your considerations, and this is understandable as I know weddings can be expensive. I am therefore as transparent as I can be about prices and there are absolutely no hidden after costs. You have budgeted for all sorts of things to ensure you create the most perfect and personal wedding for you and hopefully photography is high up in your priorities as when your dress is packed away gathering dust, the most lasting thing you will have along with your memories and the marriage itself will be your photographs. My full day rates currently start at £1400, including the engagement shoot, and all high res images provided on a USB. You can find out more information on my Investment page.
You might want to know what previous couples have said about me, and so a visit to my Testimonials page will give you an insight into the experience that others have had. I am very lucky to have worked with some wonderful couples and always feel overwhelmed and touched at the lovely comments I receive about how happy they are with the photos and how much they enjoyed having me around on their wedding day. It really makes me happy to hear such lovely feedback and I’m very proud to record it all.
I love recommending other suppliers I have worked with. From amazing talented florists to friendly wedding planners, and lovely hair and makeup artists. I love bumping into some familiar faces again and again as we recommend each other. If you are stuck for any suppliers, do just ask me, as I have met so many over the years, they are not all on my recommended page, but I can find out from other brides if you spot anything that you particularly like from my photographs.
Information About me:
You might find it useful to know a bit about me before you get in touch. I have found it so hard to write my about page, that I have three!! The main one (that you may have already stumbled upon) will tell you a little bit about me as a photographer. But I have also written a little list of sort of interesting things that many of my closest friends don’t even know about me! Then I have also written a bit about the way photography fell into my life. I’m not one of these photographers who can claim that they had a camera in their hand from the age of 5 etc. My story is a little different and if you are interested in delving deeper you can read about me and my photography.
