Photographic Style

Creative and original reportage coverage, documenting feeling and activity with a storytelling thread. Mindful of frequent family focus and your still life details throughout. 

Group shots are minimal and relaxed, with a few simple games to ooze life into them. Couple portraits are gently directed and create subtly romantic shots in the most flattering natural light balance. Cute quirks and fine art direction are suggested where inspired.   


Post-Production

All shots are carefully edited, colour balanced and individually enhanced (with Capture One Pro) by an industry professional digital operator - see 'About' section ; ). They are mainly processed in a colour format, however black and white tonal tweaks are applied where creatively more effective.

Your set of photographs are available 4-6 weeks after your wedding and initially presented to you in an online gallery, resolution optimised for digital distribution. 

High-end retouching is not usually necessary, however it is available on request and outsourced to trusted industry friends of this specialism, by quotation.  

Your final set of photographs are presented as full resolution digital files, on a portable USB 3.0 32GB stick in the post. This is your treasured hard copy, to make prints with and lots of additional back ups from! 

All photographs are copyright released for your personal use. 

Fine art prints and handmade fine art books of your photographs are also available.  


Rates

A full days coverage of 10 hours is at £2000 / €2250 and includes everything from getting ready to a real atmosphere on the dance floor! Any shorter periods of coverage are considered at £285 / €320 an hour.

All equipment (Canon prime lenses, bodies, back up gear etc), public liability insurance, preparation and post production processing are included. Travel expenses within Greater London / Southwest of France are also included. For weddings much further afield, although within the UK / France, there is a fair travel and accommodation fee considered. A travelling motorhome is available in France and so accommodation costs are often not necessary.

A thorough recce will be carried out of your location/s the day prior. In order to familiarise and source the most promising spots for your directed shots (with weather permitting back-up options if it's looking necessary), ensuring adaptable smooth flow on your wedding day. Your immediate family and bridal party relationships are discussed and their names are learnt for friendly use on the day.  

For weddings out of the UK / France, although within Europe, please consider travel and 3 nights accommodation expenses +£200 / €225.  

Everything of importance and creative interest will be captured, you can actually expect around 1000 final photographs (for a full days coverage), which therefore works out at around just £2 a photograph.

An advance deposit of £500 / €550 confirms your booking.
