“I don’t even know where to begin saying how great Kirsty was – she was that good. Not only are her photos so vibrant and colourful and full of life, but she was an absolute asset to have on the day. Cheering along and calming stresses.
Also just very good fun!”
Pricing for 2020/21
I think it is super important for my couples to know what they are getting, so no matter what coverage you go for you will get:
+ A good chat over all your plans and a pre-wedding planning meeting
+ High-resolution digital images with the license to print
+ Personal and private online gallery to share with friends and family
+ High-resolution & web ready images to download
My pricing is pretty simple, I shoot a full day (which is prep around 2 hours before the ceremony until 9pm because I love a boogie on the dance-floor.)
Second shooters, albums and the photobooth are all awesome added extras and something you can add on later down the line.
If you are planning something a little different or only a need a few hours, drop me a line and I can put together something just for you.
I shoot a limited number of weddings a year so please get in touch as early as possible. I really would love to hear all about you and your plans.
WEDDING Q + A
Other bits + bobs
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH?
I am all about feelings, emotions and having fun! They are the biggest thing I try to ensure that I convey when I am shooting. I am very relaxed and informal with a homely feel. I am nearly all documentary; I shoot what I see, I step back and watch and wait. The good stuff happens because you have your best people around you and because you are marrying your best friend in the whole wide world!
WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY?
No two weddings are ever the same. One minute I'm in a field in the middle of nowhere, next in the center of London. There are no rules really. Coverage wise I tend to start prep with you about 1.5 hours before the ceremony, get all the details, then it is time to get married (eeeeeak!) After your I do's, you can get outside, hug lots, throw some confetti, grab a drink and ill capture everyone having the very best of time. Then we would look to do your group shots with friends and family and then sneak off to get some photos of the two of you alone. When everyone sits down to eat, I will stop for a moment too and grab some food, Then it is full on party mode and I WILL dance on that dance floor!
WE DON'T LIKE HAVING OUR PHOTOS TAKEN...
Honestly, very few people do like it so don't get hung up on it. You are both going to be super happy and smiley because you just got married. You don't need to overthink it.
I say screw the weather. The UK is so unpredictable, I have shot in monsoons, blizzards and boiling hot heatwaves, you just don't know what you are going to get so don't stress over it. Just be ready to embrace whatever comes your way. I always have wellies in my boot, I'm up for anything!
DO YOU DO GROUP PHOTOS
Yes, group shots are so important. They are actually some of the most important photos of the day. They are easy parent pleasers, but I think that it is so important to get the family groups as well as you with your best friends. You can read more about my approach to stress-free groups here
HOW DO WE BOOK?
Yeahy – that is great news. I will check that your date is available and chat about the details. The more I know about you the better. I will then send you a booking form which needs to be returned with a £500 booking fee then that is it… You are officially booked in.
CAN WE MEET YOU?
YES, and I think it is really really important to get to know one another first. If logistics allow for it, let's grab a cuppa somewhere. If not we can skype/facetime.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE GET?
The number of images vary from wedding to wedding and depends on how many hours coverage you have. But you can expect to receive a minimum of 400 fully-edited images if I am covering the whole day.
WHAT CAN / CAN'T WE DO WITH THE IMAGES?
This is a good question and an important one. I talk about it more in my T+C’s but overall I hold the copyright and you get the reproduction rights to your images so you can share, email, print, create, as often as you like and as much as you like. All I kindly asks is that you not edit the images when sharing on social media as it creates a false impression of my photography style. I also ask for a credit back to me, so that other people know where to find me if they like my work.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE WEDDING?
I go home, backup and back up again. Then start editing [and I get really really excited looking back over the day]. I always send you a little something a few weeks after the wedding and you will be able to view and download your photos online no later than 8-12 weeks after your wedding. If for any reason this timescale changes I will let you know in writing.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED + DO YOU TRAVEL?
I live in a little village in Hampshire and I love it. It is very green and muddy and very country. And yes, I love to travel, around the UK or abroad (especially anywhere with beautiful golden light, or the snowy mountains) I have a passport and would love to hop onto a plane and explore somewhere new.
WE ARE GETTING MARRIED OUT OF SEASON, CAN WE GET A DISCOUNT?
Plain and simple. No. I put my all into each and every wedding that I shoot, I don’t do less work because it is out of season. I give my all and I would only want to give my all. I work really hard to provide a brilliant service to all of my couples and I love to work with people who value that service. It would also be very unfair to couples who have paid full prices to offer discounts. Good wedding photography is an investment and one that becomes more important as time goes on. Take a look at some of the things past couples have said about working with me.
DO YOU NEED FOOD + A BED?
If I am travelling a long way from Hampshire or finishing super late then a bed is sometimes needed. Food – yes please, (I am vegan) but a hot meal whilst you guys are eating would be fab, then I am ready to rock when you have finished.
ARE YOU INSURED?
YES, YES, YES, I am fully insured. You would have to be a bit of a numpty not to be.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU ARE ILL?
I would have to be really, really, REALLY ill to not make it to your wedding. But if that were the case, I am lucky enough to be part of a superdoooooooper network of photographers, all over the UK and we all have each other's backs. In the unlikely event anything happened to me, I could quickly get another photographer with a very similar style to shoot in my place.
Do YOU DO ALBUMS?
Yes, I do, really beautiful, layflat linen or leather albums. I can let you know more about albums later on.
