Weekend Wedding Photography Coverage
More and more people are choosing to have a "weekend wedding" by hiring a country house or similar venue and it's easy to understand why. You get to spend more time with your guests; the day before, the day of and the morning after. Meaning that you'll feel less pressure to whiz around making sure you've seen and thanked everyone on the day! If you charge your guests for accommodation, that big bill gets a lot smaller quickly! And quite often works out less than them staying in a separate hotel. You'll have more freedom. You can choose outside catereers, music and entertainment... Did someone say fireworks? Plus exclusivity is generally included.
If you're planning a weekend wedding your package is exactly the same as the "all day" package, but with extended coverage, so please get in touch as I'd love to hear what you're planning and provide you with a custom quote.
Wedding Albums - Optional ExtrasYou've already put a lot of effort into planning and organising your wedding. One more thing to think about is the last thing you need - not to mention another thing that costs money! That's why I offer wedding albums as optional extras. You may have already decided if you want a wedding album or not, and that's absolutely fine - there's no pressure or hard sell from me. You can decide at any point before or after the wedding if you'd like an album.
Like most wedding photographers I'm a huge fan of wedding albums. And I'd like to share why I think wedding albums are so important with you...
An album is an investment.It's one of the only things that will last more than a lifetime from your wedding day. You can share your wedding day stories with your children and grandchildren... I photographed a wedding recently where the Mother of the Bride had brought her wedding album, to look at with her daughter, on the morning of her wedding - how lovely is that?!
An album is tangible.There's something really special and exciting about turning a physical page. A professionally printed album really is a thing of beauty.
Easy to relive memories.We keep our album under the sofa, whenever the conversation turns to our wedding, we whip it out. You're unlikely to fire-up the laptop and find the folder that contains all 350+ images, then look through them all.
Technology changes.USB is certainly not on it's way out anytime soon, but no-one knows how long it'll last. An album is future proof.
Hard drives fail.Hard drives are temperamental things, loosing your mp3 collection is bad enough - let alone your wedding photos. But a professional album with archival inks will last a lot longer than any hard drive. I take back-ups very seriously - see this FAQ should the worst have happened.
Fine Art Albums - Handmade In The UKFolio Albums - Handmade from start to finish in Yorkshire, leather or fabric covers, fine art paper, lay-flat pages and archival inks from a company with fantastic eco credentials.
My aim when photographing your wedding is to tell the story of your day, so why not start that story at the beginning? My photography style revolves around me being unobtrusive. I blend into the background and photograph your day in a natural and relaxed fashion, without drawing attention to myself. This approach is perfect for secret wedding proposal photography too.
The idea behind secret proposal photography is to document something special that's often not documented. Just about everyone has a wedding photographer these days and more and more people are having engagement shoots. But what about capturing the moment they say "yes", as well as the moment they say "I do"?
Just like weddings, every proposal is different. Generally though there are two main approaches - stealth and misdirection. The stealth approach relies on me being in on your proposal plans. I'll need to know the time and place that you're going to 'pop the question' - obviously without your partners knowledge! I'll be in position nice and early, and depending on location shoot from a distance or blend into the crowd. The second approach is to use misdirection... You 'win' a 'free portrait session' and during that session you can make your surprise proposal while I'm in prime shooting position.
So, if you're planning your proposal why not get in touch - I'd love to be there to capture the moment they say YES!
What Next?I'm guessing as you're on my packages page, you've already seen my style and like my portfolio. So, it's probably time to get in touch!
Of course, if you need a little more convincing or you haven't had enough of me waffling on yet - feel free to get to know me a bit better.
