Storybook Wedding Photography

Explain your approach to wedding photography? -  I embrace the modern wedding photography style, which has progressed to tell a visual story of the whole day. Reportage style, or photojournalistic wedding photography involves creative photography that records images of emotion, celebration, romance & fun together with the quiet times often missed in the excitement of the day.

I like to blend styles, to produce a unique album of images which capture the event in a storybook style with relaxed portraits, detail shots and more formal studies included. This is a much less intrusive style than formal group shots etc and recognises that your wedding is your celebration, not a photo shoot. It's important to choose a photographer with whom you feel at ease. It’s therefore good to meet and thoroughly discuss all aspects of your wedding with me so you get to know me and I get to know you.

"I have to be a portrait photographer, landscape photographer, fashion photographer and photojournalist all within a few hours of a wedding day - it’s very satisfying"

What is your photographic style? - I enjoy reportage photo-journalism -capturing the moment and telling the story of the wedding using my cameras. I try to “pose” as few shots as possible, so as to remain unobtrusive. However, I will get in the middle of the action at some points too because after all, you want the whole story don’t you?

We want contemporary but our parents want some traditional posed photos too. Can you do both?

Yes - I shoot mostly informal but recognise that formal shots are appreciated, especially by more senior family members, so, with your help, I compile a list of more ‘formal’ group/family shots and put these in the order that minimises guests’ movement in and out of the shot and therefore only takes up a small part of the day. After all, you want to spend as much time with your guests as you can.

What is included in package price? - all day coverage from bridal preparation at the bride’s house/hotel, pre-ceremony - groom, ushers, bridesmaids etc, guests arriving, bride arriving, unobtrusive non-flash shots of the ceremony (if permitted), the signing of the register, couple leaving, group shots of immediate family, private moments with just the couple, shots at the reception including guests mingling, cutting of the cake, speeches, toasts, evening dancing,

I then edit and present your photographs in online galleries and contact sheets of around 500+ shots of the best images for you to select your album image choices. All images are also posted on your own online photo-gallery so that friends and family may view and order prints. I finalise the images with colour, monochrome and sepia toning, vignette and montage with special effects where appropriate, make up into panoramic double page spreads and show you online proofs and post you a pdf for full screen viewing. On approval, upload to studio for professional printing and binding into coffee table type story book album. I will host a personal wedding web site for you from a few days after receiving your booking deposit. With your album you will receive your best 500 (approx) best images on copyright free DVD data-disc for printing. The only extras are optional extra ‘parent’ albums, prints , acrylics and canvas prints.

What happens if it rains on our wedding day? - I shoot as much as practically possible and you may get a bit wet! Thankfully, most wedding reception venues have an indoor area to shoot family groups so if there is a downpour, we can make the best of the situation.

Can we get extra wedding albums made up for parents etc? - yes you can, at a reduced price and also in smaller format for most album styles.

Can you make a web page of photographs? - I produce an online gallery of all your images and these are accessed from a link on your own wedding web site which I host for you as a thank you gift for booking me.

Do you travel? - I am based in Nottinghamshire and work mainly in the East Midlands but I am willing to travel further afield.

What do you wear to weddings? - Because I will be working all day and evening, under pressure, I prefer not to be restricted by unsuitable clothing,. I prefer to wear smart jacket and slacks without a tie. However I will always be smart and not out of place amongst your guests. I will wear suit and tie if you prefer it.

What kind of cameras do you use? - I delight in using good quality Canon DSLR cameras and lenses. I always carry four camera bodies together with 6 high quality different lenses, two powerful flashguns, and lots of spare memory cards and batteries. My kit enables me to be creative and work efficiently.

Do you shoot digital or film? - Digital, because this modern facility enables me to control the entire workflow from shooting to album design and also provides instant feedback during shooting.

Food and soft drinks - As I am working with you from early morning to evening, I would appreciate a bar meal and a soft drink arranged for me please whilst guests sit to eat during reception.

Can we keep our files? - Yes, as part of your all-inclusive package, I am pleased to supply you with 500+ of your best images on a DVD data-disc as high resolution .jpeg format with your finished album..
