Photography has been part of my life since I was a young teenager borrowing my Dad’s camera and trying to capture images of the natural world. My interest carried on through University and I brought photography into my studies wherever possible.
Many years were spent capturing images of water-sports and the beauty of the world around us but gradually friends and colleagues encouraged me to photograph their Weddings. Now, with the experience of more than two hundred Weddings, these are my priorities:
- It’s your day, so you choose what you want me to do
- Be as friendly as possible, after all it’s your Wedding Day!
- Be quick and discreet
- Capture the images that reflect the Wedding’s atmosphere
- Offer professionalism and value for money
- Never be the ‘control freak’ photographer
Apart from Weddings I photograph corporate and social events, do some commercial work and shoot water-sports photography. For fun I photograph nature and landscapes. I use top notch digital cameras and lenses and have lighting equipment to cover all eventualities. Basically I love taking photographs!
Although bases in Poole, Dorset I have photographed weddings throughout the south and south-west.
My price range is £700 – £1,200.
£700 – from the bride’s preparations up to the start of the reception.
£1,000 – as above until the end of the first dance.
£1,200 – as above until the end of the reception
The prices includes a full set of 7″x5″ prints or disc of images. Simple as that! Either way all the images will have been tweaked and a selection of them converted to black and white, or cropped for artistic effect. Expect between 300-600 images. Exact prices will depend on venues, number of guests and any travel considerations, but you will always know the total cost before you book.
Printed ‘Photobooks’, enlargements, hi-def video clips and a web site viewing and ordering service are available if required.
The best way is to meet up and discuss your view of the Wedding Day. I can then give you an exact price, talk and advise on timings and check that we get on OK!
