Your wedding is one of the two most important days of your life. Your wedding photography will be a lifelong reminder of your perfect day.

I will capture a mix of natural unposed candid images along with a selection of formal posed shots expected in a wedding album.

It is important you find a photographer you feel comfortable working with. If you are considering using my services the best thing you can do is have a quick look through my portfolio on the front page of this website. This will give you an idea of my photography style. If you like what you see then the next step would be to send me a message using this contact page with your contact details, I will then call you and arrange a time to visit you in your home where we can discuss your plans. We can decide on the level of coverage you require and the album options available

I can then provide you with a written quote for your day including your print and album finish options.

My photography style

When i shoot weddings, I shoot a mixture of documentary style, candid images, along with a selection of posed and formal group shots. For the most part you won’t even know i’m there. I will be in the background capturing all the natural moments and interactions between your guests, bridal party and you. Weddings are full of natural emotional moments waiting to be caught on the camera.

This will allow me to create a story book photo album to tell the story of your perfect day as it unfolds. From the moment you wake all the way through until your legs can’t take any more dancing. You have the option of 3 levels of coverage with an affordable price for each option.

Your base package includes your photography cover and a set number of included prints. You can choose from a selection of professionally bound wedding albums. From Fine Italian Belissimo bound albums, to beautiful coffee table books, the range has something to suit every budget and personal taste.

Every wedding package also includes your personal online gallery where you can view your images and order additional prints. You can share your online gallery password with your guests, they can also order any prints they like from the day.

You can then further customise your package by selecting additional prints along with display and frame options. You can order images in a selection of sizes and finishes.

Should you wish to print your own images, you can order the master copy of images, allowing you to use the images and print as many copies as you like. The cost varies based on the number of images included.
