a few facts, a few details...
My approach and philosophy to photographing a wedding is really pretty simple.
I consider being asked to photograph the story of a couples wedding a fantastic privilege. I love witnessing the excitement and the beauty of the whole occasion, the expression of emotions and the incredible energy that fills the day.
Ultimately my aim is to provide you with a documentary based illustration of your wedding day, my intention is not to just make pretty pictures but to capture the true moments of magic. The beautiful fleeting moments that unfold throughout the day, the glance, the smile, the touch and the kiss, I believe these are the truly priceless moments that amongst the exchange of vows and rings, the congratulations and celebrations, pass by so quickly that they can so easily go unseen and unknown. For me as a photographer these are priceless moments of true beauty. These moments show themselves in spontaneous flashes and can not be staged or conducted. To this end I prefer to direct proceedings as little as I possibly can, to keep the guiding and posing to a bare minimum, to take a step back and to allow your day to flow naturally.
In the interests of simplicity I don't offer a variety of packages or set the extent of coverage in stone. I prefer to begin at the beginning and finish at the end.
From the morning's preparations through to the evening's celebrations, I can be with you for the whole day, whenever and wherever you need. This approach allows me the best opportunity to capture the story of your wedding day in full.
With that said, I completely understand that every wedding is unique, styled by you to reflect you as a couple and should you wish for something different I am flexible and more than happy to work with you and tailor my coverage and services to suit.
Included in this complete package are the following...
I'm based in beautiful Devon and generally photograph weddings throughout the southwest. If you're getting married in Cornwall, Devon or Somerset then all travel expenses are included in your package. I am more than happy to travel to photograph your wedding should you be getting married anywhere else in the UK, however, travel and accommodation expenses would have to be taken into consideration.
If you'd like to get in touch to discuss your wedding you can enter your details on my contact me page, email me directly or call anytime, my contact details can be found at the bottom of each page. I'll reply to you as soon as I possibly can and let you know if I'm available for your date.
The next step is usually to meet informally over a coffee or two to chat about your plans and for you to see if I'm the photographer your looking for and for me to determine if I can meet your needs for your big day. Should we be unable to meet at this point for any reason we can arrange to chat over the phone, skype or email.
If everything looks good, we're all happy and you'd like to book me to be your wedding photographer, I'll have a booking form for you to complete and will ask you for a deposit to secure your date.
Once the celebrations have have settled I will set to work on your wedding photos. Within 2 days I will post a few of your photos on my Facebook page for you to have a peek at. I will then begin carefully selecting and processing each image one at a time. I aim to have your photos ready for you to view within 2 to 3 weeks of your wedding date. A private online gallery will then be posted for you to share with your family and friends.
I'm often asked the question of how many images you can expect to receive, unfortunately the answer to this question is impossible to give in advance. Every wedding is unique, styled by you to reflect you as a couple and because each wedding is unique each will result in a different number of final images. The number of photographs that I take depends on many things, the length of coverage, the number of guests, the type of events through to the tiny details of the day and everything in between. You will receive every image that contributes to the story of your big day.
When you've decided which of your images are your favourites I will begin putting together your Fine Art print and USB package. Should you have any further requirements for prints or albums it's at this point that we can discuss those.
An album is the perfect way to showcase your photos. It's a lasting, timeless reminder of your wedding story. I work with a leading national company, who just happen to be based here in Devon to produce beautifully designed, beautifully crafted albums that can be as bespoke as you wish. Alternatively or in addition to, you have the option of having your images presented as mounted prints, boxed discs or smaller sized albums for your family. The purchase of an album or prints is entirely optional. The cost of producing an album obviously varies depending on what design options you choose and is something we can discuss prior to your big day.
