Occasionally I shoot a Wedding. Very occasionally.
I won't shoot more than 3, 4 or 5 a year as I think they should all be fresh and individually tailored to the bride and groom. I fiercely avoid shooting weddings over and over, week in, week out, as I never want them to become a repetitive chore where the end product all looks the same - how do you shoot 40 weddings a year and still keep it personal and special?
I shoot with a medium format high resolution camera and with an assistant as a minimum to help with portable lighting. However I generally shoot with another fully independent and very experienced wedding photographer, and we stay with you all through your day. This is a much better option, giving you much better coverage, including preparation for both bride and groom parties, and 2 perspectives on the most important part of the day, your ceremony. It also means many more of the happy spontaneous moments that happen throughout your wedding will be captured
We work with multiple portable lighting setups for your feature shots and your beautiful formal wedding portraits, and then capture the rest of your day with an informal and relaxed editorial tone. Image finishing can be to your taste and we can discuss that ahead of your big day. Whilst we understand that your will of course want to have shots with parents and bride and groom parties, endless lists of family combinations stood stiffly in a row never makes for great wedding photography, and we'd much rather find creative looks or catch people as they are on your day in a relaxed moment with you.
The package is simple - For me and another fully independent professional wedding photographer to cover your whole day from preparations through to first dance, with digital images on a private gallery the cost is £1275.
Contact me if you'd like to talk about how we could shoot your wedding day, or any special requirements that you have - we would love to be part of it.
