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.
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, although black and white tonal tweaks are applied where felt more effective.
Your set of photographs are available 4-6 weeks after your wedding and initially presented to you in a beautiful 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 follow shortly after, presented on a portable USB flash drive in the post, in highest .jpeg resolution optimised for printing. This is your treasured hard copy, to make lots of additional back ups from! No novel flash drives - instead opting for high-speed performance, quality & reliability of industry leading storage brand SanDisk, (SanDisk Ultra Fit 32GB USB 3.1 Flash Drive). No fancy packaging - all recyclable.
All photographs are copyright released for your personal use.
Fine art prints and handmade fine art books of your photographs are also available.
A full days coverage of 10 hours is at £2200 / €2500 and includes everything from getting ready to a real atmosphere on the dance floor! Any shorter periods of coverage start at £300 / €340 per hour.
Everything of importance and creative interest will be captured, you can expect thorough coverage of 1200+ final photographs (for a full days coverage), which therefore works out at less than £2 a professional photograph.
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.

Travel expenses within Greater London / Southwest of France are also included.
