WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

HOW IT ALL WORKS

Hertfordshire Wedding Photography Prices & Information

 Congratulations…… you’re getting married! 🙌🏻  Your wedding is so unique, and I feel honoured that you are considering me as your photographer 👍🏻

Your wedding will always be one of the most memorable days of your life and one that you will treasure forever and most couples will spend months, if not years, planning for this special day. So its really important to find a photographer that will capture your special moments.

Wedding Galleries

Not all weddings are the same, and neither are all wedding photographers. It’s so important to get the right fit. I would describe my style as relaxed, elegant and timeless wedding photography with an emphasis on people and emotions. It’s largely documentary or candid; that means that I’ll get out of your way and let you get on with enjoying yourselves, whilst grabbing all the weird, crazy, wonderful, awkward, hilarious, emotional moments as your day unfolds.

Another fantastic way to help you feel at ease with me before your big day is to have an engagement or couples session (as I like to call it). Yep, most couples generally feel a little bit anxious about having one of ‘these’ sessions. And I totally understand that, so I like to keep these sessions really low key and relaxed.  It will honestly give you some idea of what to expect on the day and how I will work with you and my camera. These sessions are included in my top packages, but these are optional and you can add a session at any time. I would love you to really enjoy this experience, so have a peek at some of my couples.

  Engagement Portrait Gallery

You’ll only get married once. Your wedding photos will be the only way to look back on your day and your life together at that very moment and will live on for generations to enjoy. Something that is irreplaceable. This isn’t an expense. It’s one of the best investments you can make when planning your wedding. I’ve purposely called it an investment rather than pricing…because I genuinely believe that’s what your wedding photos are. Unlike many things you’ll spend your precious wedding budget on, your images will truly last a lifetime, and beyond. And like all good investments, the true value of them increases over time, particularly as your own memories fade.

Timeline

THE MORNING PREP

Coverage begins with approx 2 hours before your ceremony begins. I’ll ask you to have all your details, dress, shoes, & jewellery. Chances are you have spent a lot of money on those details, so I will be photographing all these in the morning. Following up with capturing you and your bridesmaids getting ready. If you have chosen my top package, then your second photographer will be with the groom capturing all their fab details at the same time.

THE CEREMONY

My second photographer will capture all the details of the ceremony before the bride arrives. I will be waiting for the groom’s reaction when the bride arrives, and I will capture the bride as she walks down to meet her future husband. Along with all the friends and family reactions.

WEDDING PHOTOS

After the ceremony all your friends and family love to mingle and congratulate you, so while this is happening I will be capturing lots of natural candid shots. After a little bit of time I will begin to take some family and couple portraits, either at the Church or your venue.

THE RECEPTION

I will be there to capture your entrance as Mr & Mrs! I will allow you to have your meal in peace, as nobody looks good when they have their mouth full of food lol. Once the speeches start, I’ll be there back on it, capturing those incredibly fantastic expressions from friends and family.

THE PARTY

After your speeches there can often be some time for mingling, I will be going around taking lots of all your guests enjoying themselves. If we have a small chance we can even catch some couple sunset photos. I will be there to photograph you cutting the cake and your first dance. I will also stay around for one or two songs to capture your guests boogieing the night away.
