WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?

I love working with adventurous couples who are totally in love and want someone to capture their fun and emotion-filled Wedding story in a candid, emotive and artistic way. I work best with people who are relaxed and put their trust in me to capture their connection and create something beautiful and unique for them. I keep in regular touch during the run up to your Wedding day so that we get to know each other and build a rapport. I’m usually one of the gang, helping to zip up dresses and pin button holes by the time the big day arrives!!

02.          >

HOW DO YOU WORK?

I’m a part of your day to document genuine moments as they naturally happen. I invest time with you before your wedding day to understand what and who is important in your unique story and for most of the day itself I stay very hands off, unobtrustively focusing purely on telling this story. You won’t find me recreating moments, but you will find me watching and ready to capture those moments before they even happen.

At portrait time things are a little different. We work together, in a beautiful location, to make images that are unique to you. I do give you some direction at this time, but then step back so you can make this moment your own, which allows me to capture your connection in honest, natural photos.

My goal at every wedding is to tell your story and capture moments that are important to you and to ultimately create a portrait of your connection that takes your breath away. If that’s something that excites you, we’ll be a perfect fit.

03.          >

CAN WE SEE A COMPLETE WEDDING THAT YOU HAVE PHOTOGRAPHED?

Of Course! I think it’s really important for you to see how I document an entire wedding day – the details, the moments, the feelings – everything that makes a wedding so special and unique.

I have posted links to a few complete galleries at the bottom of this page.

04.          >

WHAT DO WE GET & WHEN?

I don’t set limits – minimum or maximum – as every day is different, but, as a very loose and general rule, you will receive around 50-75 images for each hour of coverage. Every wedding is different and unique in size, in moments and in opportunity and it’s impossible to quote an absolute figure that works across all possible scenarios. In reality, you will probably get lots more than this! I don’t put a cap on the maximum and, under any circumstance, deliver every image that I know you will love – even the occasional photo that may ‘technically’ not quite make the grade, but if the moment is special, it will be included. I promise I won’t leave anything out. You will get the best images from all that I photograph throughout your day.

All of the edited files are delivered in high resolution JPEG format via an online gallery, these are very easy to download with no watermarks. Take a look at the complete sample albums below to expereince what these look like.

I aim to get a few ‘Sneak Peak’ images to you within a few days of your wedding day. Over the next 8-12 weeks I take my time to master your images, prepare your gallery, create your slideshow and design your album, if required. Carefully and Individually selecting, editing and curating your images is a huge part of the art of telling the story of your day and not something that can be rushed. Whilst I aim to deliver all galleries within 6 weeks, timeframes can vary, particularly at peak season, as I will not compromise quality for speed.

05.          >

DO I NEED A SHOT LIST?

Nope! A few weeks before the wedding I’ll send you a questionnaire which will tell me everything I need to know about your wedding plans. Included within that is the only shot list I ask for – the groupings for your family photos. There are recommendations about what people normally do and an area to fill in what’s unique to your family.

06.          >

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?

Sure do! I absolutely love travelling and being inspired by new places and cultures. I’ll happily go anywhere you invite me – especially if it’s warm in the winter!!

Travel costs only apply with locations that require a flight or that are over 50 miles away from EX16 postcode. For locations further afield, mileage is charged at 45p per mile plus accommodation, if required.

Destination weddings are customised depending on the specifics of your location and plans, however it’s generally 2 nights hotel and round trip flight out of either Exeter or Bristol airport.

07.          >

HOW DO WE BOOK?

After we’ve talked about which package works best for your wedding I’ll send along a formal proposal with the contract and payment information in a custom online portal.

I require a 25% non-refundable retainer and a signed agreement to confirm your booking. The balance is due 1 month before your wedding day.

I’m totally happy for you to spread your payments between that time –  however works best for you. If you’d like to set something up, just let me know!

10.          >

WHAT DO WE WEAR FOR OUR CONNECTION SESSION?

My advice here would be for men to wear dark clothing, aim for smart casual, although a beautifully cut suit is always very dashing. Ladies I would suggest something flowing and neutral in colour, with natural hair and makeup. This sits perfectly in the aesthetic of the landscape and does not over power you as a couple, ensuring you are the focus of the image.

However! I would always also say to just be you and absolutely wear something that you feel comfortable in. Do not feel like you have to dress up if that’s not your thing – jeans and snuggly knits are just as cool! If you wear something you feel awkward and uncomfortable in, that will show in your images, so ultimately just be the unique ‘you’ that you are, and if you have any questions, I’m always here to help!

WEDDING ALBUMS

Often, the experience of seeing your photos actually printed in a physical/tangible form can be forgotten about. It’s an important factor to consider when you’re thinking about what you truly want out of your wedding photos. Sometimes it’s just a totally different feeling to pull out a wedding album than it is to boot up your computer. To look at ink instead of pixels. To hold the memories of your day in your hands…

A beautiful album is the ultimate way to experience your wedding day with a curated story that will last for generations, in a hand made extremely high quality piece of art.

STARTING AT £230

  • EVERY ALBUM IS CREATED BY ME WITH CUSTOM DESIGNED LAYOUTS.
  • VARIOUS SIZES AND COVER COLORS AVAILABLE, AND A MORE AFFORDABLE LINEN COVER.

2ND PHOTOGRAPHER

Let me start by saying that I photograph most weddings by myself, however sometimes it just makes logistical sense to have a second photographer. I can’t be in two places at the same time and if you want photos of getting ready in two totally different locations, or you want lots of detail photos and candids while we’re out taking photos – a second photographer is the best way to go about it.

  • ADD £350
  • I ONLY USE PROFESSIONALS THAT I TRUST AND WHO’S STYLE AND APPROACH IS SIMILAR TO MY OWN
  • ALL IMAGES ARE GIVEN TO ME FOR SAFE KEEPING AND EDITED FOR DELIVERY RIGHT ALONG WITH MY OWN

UNPLUGGED DISCOUNT

I started offering discounts for unplugged weddings since noticing a huge spike in tablets and phone cameras at nearly every wedding. I’ve found it’s a win-win with your guests being ‘in the moment’ and enjoying your marriage and me being able to photograph moments of people laughing and hugging instead of pointing at screens – or worse, you through their screens!

  • YOU MAKE A BEST EFFORT ATTEMPT TO ASK YOUR GUESTS TO PUT THEIR DEVICES AWAY UNTIL AFTER THE CEREMONY (RECEPTION IS TOTALLY FINE FOR SELFIES!)
  • I GIVE YOU A 10% DISCOUNT ON ANY PACKAGE YOU BOOK WITH ME*

*AVAILABLE ON 8+ HOURS COVERAGE ONLY

** NOT APPLICABLE WITH ANY OTHER DISCOUNT OR SPECIAL OFFER

GIFBOOTH

The GIFs and Giggles GIF booth is not just any old average “photo booth”, but a seriously entertaining digital spin on the classic party add-on. The Magic Mirror GIFBooth creates super-fun, fast-paced animated gif files that are sent instantly to your guests’ smartphones for them to enjoy and share via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  You can even use your wedding #hastag too!  After the wedding you receive an online gallery for 1 year, and all the digital files from the GIFBooth!

  • INCLUDED WITH EVERY WEDDING COLLECTION OVER 8 HOURS COVERAGE  (DRIVABLE WEDDINGS ONLY)
  • COMPACT & STYLISH
