Wedding Reportage Photography Services

 

One of the most important days of your life…but it all went by in such a whirl you can hardly remember a thing.

 

Fortunately, thanks to the pictures of the day, those precious moments are not lost forever.

I will record your day – not direct it – instead I will tell the story of your wedding in visual narrative, from an observer’s view point. Your photographs will be an unobtrusive, informal, record of your special day, primarily in a reportage style.

Budgeting for your Memories

Because, like your wedding day, everyone’s budget differs, all package prices are only a guideline and can be tailored to fit your unique needs. No matter what package best fits your budget, your wedding is your day and is all about you – not about the photographer. Therefore, the following packages are just to give you an idea of what you can expect from me and how much you can expect to pay.

Regardless of the package you choose, the only limit to the amount of photographs available is the amount of photographs taken – If I take 300 great shots then you will get 300 great shots on your disk– but if i take 1000 great shots then you will get 1000 great shots on your disk.

I will only ever shoot one wedding in a day.

Calm and Relaxed

Many people find having their photograph taken more an embarrassing trial than an opportunity to shine, even on their special day, so I’d recommend a “Getting to know you” photographic shoot.

This is to help you to get used to being in front of the camera as well as giving us both a chance to get to know each other and work together. I’d recommend a relaxed, pre-wedding shoot, for example, at the wedding venue, the reception venue (management permitting) or at an agreed location. This would usually be about 2 hours: Time well spent to help calm your fears about having your photo taking, even if it doesn’t stop you being nervous about the wedding itself.

Photography in the Church

Please note that photography during the ceremony will be restricted, and sometimes will not be allowed at all. When photography is allowed, it will generally be a case of picking the most suitable spot and sticking to it, and this may well be dictated by the officiate. Therefore if ceremony photographs are permitted, unfortunately there will not be a wide variety of angles and shots. You should discuss this with your officiate prior to the wedding, to allow you to know in advance on any limitationson that may be in place. I will go where permitted within the confines of the church rules, however, the ceremony is a sacred event and I will treat it accordingly.

Traditional Wedding Photographs

Most of my photography is, an unobtrusive reportage style, but I can certainly do some of the more traditional “formal” shots if that is what you require. We can discuss this in advance to come up with a suitable shooting list which can then be built into the plan for the day.

 

However, these traditional shots tend to take time to arrange on the day, so you must allow enough time between the ceremony and the reception for these to be done. Each requested shot can take up to 5 minutes to get right (the bigger the group the longer they tend to take).

 

It may be preferable to do some of these group shots at the reception venue so that people can have a drink etc whilst hanging around.

These shots should ideally be done before people start to eat – firstly it reduces the risks of food and wine related accidents to people’s clothes, and those with hats etc will still be wearing them.

 

 

All prices intended as a guide only. An additional charge may be added to your package should overnight accommodation or travel expenses be required. All editing will be performed at the photographer’s discretion. Should you require anything further however, that can be arranged between us.

A non refundable retainer is required to is required at the time of booking to secure your wedding date. Prices are subject to change, however this will not affect any booked weddings.

Telling the story of your special event in a visual photographic narrative, in an unobtrusive, informal, reportage style

 

Sax PlayerI am a Wiltshire based photographer, however, being based on the M4 corridor and nearly next door to the M5 makes travel to pretty much anywhere in the UK pretty easy.

I generally “go solo” at the events I photograph (though if you have a very large guest list, or perhaps a split venue, then I have an associate who will accompany me), mingling but in an unobtrusive manner. I dress appropriately for the events I attend, so as to not stand out, but to blend in. I am not by nature bossy (though my daughter may argue that point) and will not try to make people pose, or pretend they are doing something for the sake of a pre imagined picture. The words “smile”, or “say cheese” will not be uttered.

 

Instead I will record the event, telling a visual story as it unfolds. I will not disrupt the running of the event to take photographs and will take a lot of photographs discretely – but I will also interact with your guests to make them more comfortable so that although I can photographically be emotionally involved in the day, people will feel comfortable enough about my presence to not grimace or freeze for the photographs. I have excellent people skills and make people feel at ease.

 

Although most of my photography is an unobtrusive reportage style, I can certainly do some of the more traditional “formal” shots if that is what you, or the style of the event require (I would recommend that you select someone who knows the majority of the people who will be involved in the formal shots to help with the organisation – I find this generally really helps speed up the process).

We will discuss this in advance, and I will help you to come up with a suitable shooting list which can then be built into the plan for the day.

 

Lost HankieWhatever event you hire me to record, be it a wedding, a family celebration, a party, a christening or a music event, when you receive your pictures, you won’t be reminded of the photographer telling you to stand slightly to the left or telling you to look up. Instead you will receive a beautiful, honest record of the event of both colour and black and white shots, which will invoke memories of your emotions, your conversations, even your Uncle Charlie’s terrible jokes!

 

Before your Special Event

Once you have decided that you would like me to cover your event, please contact me so that we can discuss availability. I will require a 20% retainer, to secure your date.

About a month before your event I will confirm the fine details with you such as exact locations, confirm times, formal image requirements etc. The remainder of the balance is due around this time.

 

After the Special Event

Once I have finished the photography I then work through the images, editing as needed. It can take up to 4 weeks for me to finish this side of the job. I will then provide you details so that you can review, securely, the photos online at your convenience.

If I am preparing an album it is at this stage that you will chose your favourite shots. In addition, you can purchase prints of any of these images. (as well as albums and prints I can also supply your photographs in a variety of size prints, on canvas prints, large format prints etc, depending on your personal requirements).
