Wedding Photography Prices

 

The variety of wedding photography prices in the UK available on the internet, can be very confusing. Hence it is a tough decision, what price bracket to look at. And the answer is not simple… One thing for sure, a wedding day photographic coverage is an investment and this is the way I would like you to think about it. You might ask a question, how much should a wedding photography costs? Well, to have a right professional wedding photographer covering your the day is absolutely priceless! Memories might fade away but your precious memories in the form of wedding photos will always be there to re-tell the story of your day. At the end of the day you are investing in memories but you are also investing in my time and my creative skills. It takes a huge amount of work and effort for a photographer to make stunning pictures. And this fact should be reflected in prices.

My wedding photography pricing model is based purely on an hourly rate for the time spent during the wedding day and for the time associated with the post-production required to make those beautiful pictures you are after. As my job during the wedding is to capture the day as it unfolds, the final collection of pictures will be a mixture of documentary style and more considered and arranged couple shots. Your big day is where my role just begins. Afterwards I will spend many hours culling, hand editing and retouching them in order to present you with a unique style collection of pictures.

To make your initial decision easier I created wedding photography packages which are detailed below. If you fear that I am not an affordable wedding photographer remember that my wedding photography prices are based on hourly rate. If you are planning a small intimate wedding with coverage less than 10 hours, simply do get in in touch to get personalised quote.

 

Wedding Photography Packages – Bespoke Collections

 

I offer a “Basic Collection” Wedding Photography package which includes 10hrs of coverage during the day, fully edited pictures in digital format, access to an online proofing gallery and mobile app. Your images will also be delivered on USB stick in a beautiful presentation box.  Cost of this service is £1199. Very affordable option taking into consideration an average UK wedding prices and the quality of service and photos on offer.

Hopefully you also believe that printed images are the the best way for photographs to be presented.  I offer a variety of display options that can be added to your collection, including presentation boxes, beautiful albums, wall art or thank you cards. A information and product pricing PDF file can be sent to you on request.

Next two wedding packages contain extra products. Both Wedding Collections have been created based on my experience of what many couples want from their wedding photography and you can view them in the table below which breaks down wedding photographer cost for each of them.

The “Midnight Blue Collection” set is my optimal offer.  As well as the wedding coverage there is an ‘Ice Breaker’ and because it includes an Engagement Shoot.  It provides a great opportunity for you to see me working and for us to get to know each other before the wedding.

The “Golden Collection” package provides a balanced selection of digital and printed presentation products with an Engagement Shoot and a luxury handmade Wedding Album.

 

Wedding Photography Prices – Second Shooter

 

There is one more important thing to consider when talking about wedding photography prices. You may wish to have a second experienced shooter during your wedding day. Additional wedding photographers not only assist and  allow me to perform at my highest possible level but they also provide a different perspective on the day. Having a second shooter should offer reassurance that that not a single vital moment will go unnoticed because the simple truth is I cannot be in two places at the same time.  Your wedding day schedule will be very busy and I would hate to know that some precious moments will be missed and the full story cannot be professionally captured.  For instance while I am shooting bride prep my assistant would make sure that the groom’s prep is covered. If i am doing speeches, my second shooter would offer a different perspective capturing the reaction of the guests or simply documenting those precious candid moments, for example kids  running around enjoying the day. I do get asked quite often about necessity of hiring a second photographer hence this topic is also covered on Wedding FAQ page.

The cost of this service for full day is £299.

A non-refundable booking fee of £200 is required at the time of booking to secure your date. The balance is due one month before your wedding date.

Travel within 50 mile radius from my postcode, MK42, is included in price and any distance outside the 50 mile radius will be charged at 45p per mile.
