WEDDING SERVICES 

Update
I will be bringing my GoPro camera to your wedding*. We can use it to record your ceremony from the registrar's table, attach it the groom, put it on your dog's collar, stick it on a selfie stick, ask a flower girl or pageboy to go around interviewing your guests and even strap it to a bottle of whisky in the evening. What ideas have you got?

Your wedding photographs are a collaboration.  Let's make something beautiful.

BESPOKE / A LA CARTE

contact me

Having had the opportunity to book some truly original weddings this recently (e.g. whole weekend festival style, multi-day Indian wedding and a tiny elopement style wedding with just two guests), I offer a bespoke service so that I can provide you the very best coverage of your wedding.  If you've got a particular budget in mind- I can quickly tell you what I can do for your budget.

I love to stay at a wedding for as long as I can, not because I can charge more but because I really get to know everyone, they've absolutely relaxed around me and the photos show that.

Platinum

£1050 Choose this option if you and your friends will be dancing late into the evening and you love those drunken friends on the dance floor shots in my portfolio- after spending all day with you and your guests I'll be on the dance floor with you, wide angled lens capturing the antics.  I will be bringing my GoPro camera; we can use it to record your ceremony from the registrar's table, attach it the groom, put it on your dog's collar, stick it on a selfie stick, ask a flower girl or pageboy to go around interviewing your guests and even strap it to a bottle of whisky in the evening. What ideas have you got?

I will be there from as early as you need me until ridiculously late into the night. Not only does this mean I capture the fun dancing shots of you and your friends, I'll start my day with bridal preparations, the lads getting ready and get to tell every detail of your day. I know a lot of photographers like to leave shortly after the first dance, I'd much much prefer to stay late and capture your whole story- DJs are often amazed, one said recently “I’ve never met a photographer that stays this long - I wish I’d booked you to do my wedding”.   

Ideally, we will meet as soon as possible after you contact me so that I can hear about your wedding, learn about the unique details of the day and most importantly so that we can get to know each other. We'll talk again, shortly before your wedding to go through things in fine detail for as long as we need; there's no hurry. If you've got time, we could arrange an engagement shoot or create some images for your invitation cards; lets discuss some ideas.

You'll receive coverage of your wedding from as early as you need me on the day through into the evening. I'll be there as late as you need me, recording the last bright embers of your day. I'll be there for all the moments that matter, the tables being set, the flowers being arranged, stylish detail photographs of the wedding rings, the tying of your dress, the best man polishing the grooms shoes (yes he's meant to do that), detail photographs of the tables, your dress, the flowers, your cake, all the individual parts. We'll plan some time to take some truly artistic, high fashion dramatic photographs that you'll utterly love and want on your wall.

I will tell your story and I will love doing it.

I'll deliver your story as a mixture of documentary, traditional shots for you to cherish. there will be image processing of perhaps 1500 photos, but likely potentially more in both black and white and colour (I don't put a limit on the photos I edit). You'll receive the highest quality photographs presented on a high quality USB drive with folders of "Simon's picks"- a great place to start looking through your images.
I'll always be available to help you choose shots for your printed album and recommend the ones for wall-art sized printing. I'll talk you through the various options: printing on acrylic, metal or canvas so that you can receive the very best photography printed materials. Prints are not included in my fee-I don't want to profit from these. I just want you to get the best and most suitable materials to suit you and your wedding. I will never include printed materials into my fee as the photographs you choose for printing will dictate the medium and even the type of paper to bring out the best in the artwork.

Gold

£800 I will be there from as early as you need me until sometime after the first dance (don't worry, I absolutely don't clock watch and I don't pack up my cameras as soon as the dance finishes- I'm not that guy).

Silver

Bespoke


You tell me your budget and I'll tell you what I can do for you, or if you've got an exciting wedding that needs me to stay an evening or travel to a number of super destinations then let me know and I'll provide you a detailed quote.



Engagement / Pre Shoot

I'd really like the opportunity to meet and work with you prior to your wedding as we can go through some of the detail parts of posing that really help lift the look of your photos as well as provide you with some beautiful artwork.  The cost for this would depend where we travel for the shoot, but is free with bookings over 8 hours/Gold/Platinum wedding dependent upon location.


The link below shows you pricing for the printer I recommend but you are of course free to use others.  Look in the column 3:2 as this is the ratio my camera produces.

My job is to tell the story of your day, that's what I love doing; you don't get a better service if you pay more money, I just need to spend longer providing the service and I usually need to bring along some different kit.  I understand that weddings and budgets are different sized.  Please contact me, so that we can create a package that suits your wedding, your lives and your budget.

I don't look at this as a job, it may be a business, but first and foremost it's a passion.
Thanks, Simon.

YOUR MEMORIES ARE MY PRIORITY

I carry two full-frame professional cameras with a host of professional lenses.  Your images are backed-up and secured with suitable and continued paranoia until I deliver them (and then for a little bit longer (and I mean years) until I am confident you have them backed up too.  

NB: Due to the failure of one USB memory stick I no longer provide a lovely little USB in a glass bottle and have instead moved to a robust and trustworthy professional USB3 storage solution for you.  I know it's not as pretty but the images on it will be, I promise.

Final Notes:

I think you can hire a photographer on 3 different levels: 
1. As a commodity: solely based on price- the lowest price gets the job.

2. As a service: photo albums and printing are included in the price.

3. As an experience.  This is what you get if you hire me.  I like people. I know you might have been expecting me to use words like portrait, documentary and art, but honestly, the thing that makes me…me; is that I like people. It means that I blend into an event and record it from the inside rather than with the external eye of an observer. It means that I like making people happy by providing an experience above and beyond my promise. It means I understand the subtle nuances of body language and eye contact. It means I’m not just a storyteller, but a narrator.
