"Thank you for everything, it is a shame we only get to meet the interesting people briefly".
There will be no posing, no forced smiles, no soppy looks, no embarrassing leaping in the air - and absolutely no frocks in trees - EVER.
I won’t take over the day. I observe, I don’t orchestrate. It’s your day and it's my pleasure to document it for you, but I won’t commandeer it.
You’ll get a collection of honest, unposed, natural photographs in which you will be able to recognise yourself.
You're different, so why should your wedding photography look like everybody else's?
My visual style is a ‘light touch’, no filters that make the pictures look dated in years to come. I remember the ’80s, I was there!
Working with me is simple. All you need to do is ask me to be there and then forget about me and concentrate on enjoying yourself.
I'm a lovely chap – no really I am. I will mingle with your guests and disappear into the crowd for the most part. You don't need to worry about a thing - least of all me!
Your mum will love me, she won’t even grumble (too much) when I take a picture of her with her hair in curlers.
It's good to talk. We'll do that, we'll have an initial telephone call, Skype consultation or meet-up in person (depending upon location) to talk about your plans and see if I'm 'the one' !
I'll be there all day, from prep in the morning until some way into the party. I will stay as long as I need to in order to tell your story. It usually works out to about ten to twelve hours. I won't leave you until I have enough material to show you the story of your day.
The price includes all travel expenses within the mainland UK. No hidden costs to suddenly appear on the final invoice.
Edited images will be delivered in high resolution and watermark free via digital download / online gallery. Usually you will receive your pictures within 4 weeks of the wedding date. You have full personal usage rights which means you can share them with friends, print them or give copies to Gran. As for how many pictures - there's no upper limit - you get all the pictures I think are good enough to show you. At least 400 - 500 images.
I won't hound you from pillar to post after you've booked. That said I'm always available to you if you want to chat or have any questions. If you do just get in touch. You have my undivided attention. If you don't need to contact me before the wedding I will send you the balance invoice about a month before your date and then I will get in touch with you a week or so before the big day for a final chat through plans and a general catch up.
Other stuff you might be interested in;
All that sort of stuff is available, we can discuss whether it's appropriate for you when we talk.
I promise you that you won't be harrased or embarrassed, cajoled around the venue, made to gurn, pose and look / feel soppy or daft. You won't be taken away from your guests for hours for a portrait session or for endless family line ups. We can grab a few pictures like that but when we do, it will be fast and painless and you'll look like you in those pictures, not some couple you don't recognise.
