YOUR INVESTMENT

Step forward in time for a moment, if you will, to say 30 or even 50 years from now. What price will you or your future generations put on your wedding photographs? All those wonderful moments and details beautifully captured? All those feelings and emotions flooding back to you each time you turn a page in your magnificently preserved and gorgeously presented album? The answer may well be ‘no price’, after all your wedding day memories will become more precious with each passing year. But here’s my price on all that I am delighted to be able to offer you. I have three collections for you to consider, as follows:

Included as Standard: whatever the collection, each and every client receives the following:

Included: Face to Face Consultation

Yes, I would love to buy you a coffee (or something a little stronger if circumstances permit!) and have a good run through your day so that I can start to visualise everything. Therefore this will typically take place a lot nearer to your wedding and at a point when you’ve completed most of your planning. It would also be a great opportunity to answer more specific questions etc. The most important thing is that it will allow us to get to know each other a little more ahead of your day.

Included: Me, Alistair, as your photographer.

Did I mention that some kind folks (the Guild of Professional Photographers, no less!) awarded me with ‘Top 10 International Wedding Photographer of the Year, 2015’? Well, that’s me, on the right, looking very cheesy being presented with the award.12716046_1002027186523170_2828749587711283829_o

OK, what does that mean for you? I will feast myself on photographing your day with all the observational skills, passion and creativity you will have to come to expect by getting to know my work. I will also have my assistant will be on hand primarily to assist me but tradition also dictates that he / she will help you with your button holes, take over from Dad cooking the breakfast whilst he goes and gets ready because he hasn’t realised the time, fetch things for you and even say yes to an offer of a dance with the Mother of the Bride (true story, ask me about it!). You do have the option of adding a second photographer should you so wish.

Included: Full Day of Coverage

Typically this will run from the morning of your preps until the first few dances. But when I photograph a wedding I don’t want it to be time-bound. To me the story, YOUR story, is more important than the duration.

Included: The STUNNING 40 page 14x10 inch Album

The ultimate way to showcase your wedding, to perfectly tell the story of your day and to presealbum webrve those memories forever more. Included in your package is the album design – within just a few weeks of your wedding we will design an album that you will fall in love with. You will are sent the proofs before going to print at which point you will be more than welcome to make changes.

Without having to rely on technology that has long since become obsolete, one of your descendants will be able to pick up the album a 100 years from now and immerse themselves in it. With the story-telling images perfectly capturing you, the surroundings and the atmosphere of the day, they will feel as if they were there.

This will be your first family heirloom, your legacy.

Celebrate your engagement, capture your excitement, generally get to realise that being in front of the camera with me is a lot of fun and that the most important ingredient for beautiful images is about you being yourselves and trusting me to bring out the best of you in photographs. For a lot of people this can be a real boost ahead of their wedding day. We can conduct this at your venue (if it’s within a 35 mile radius of where I live – RG24). Otherwise we will choose an equally lovely location that is mutually convenient. You will receive a gallery of approx. 30 downloadable hi resolution digital files. Here’s some further thoughts as to how this could help you.

  • Large, 30 x 20″ Wall art – £350

  • 5 mounted 10×8″ prints £125

Beautifully presented in antique white textured freestanding mounts, these superior lab quality prints can either be put straight out on the sideboard (or you desk) or put into frames to make real features for your wall.

  • Slideshow video – £125

c80 images set to music and loaded onto a USB in a wooden box. It’s beautiful, it’s emotional and will have you reaching for the hankies everytime. A wonderful way to re-live your wedding day over and over again.

THE PROMISE OF SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT SPECIAL

NEXT STEPS

If you like my style, approach and what I have to offer then please do get in touch as soon as you are ready. I’d love to hear from you. Hopefully I’ll still have your date available and to make a booking please let me know which collection you’d like (you don’t need to decide how you’d like to spend your à la carte credit until further down the line). To complete the formalities I’ll then send you an invoice for the £400 retainer (with the balance not payable until 6 weeks prior to your wedding) and a booking form to complete, sign and send back.

That’s it! However, feel free to ask away with any questions first.

ALBUMS

To me an image doesn’t become a photograph until it’s printed and it’s also about photographing your day with a more tangible end product very much in mind. I want to showcase your wedding and tell the story of your day. With every package I offer, this will be in the form of a bespoke, stunning album. An album that is designed for you, is unique and will truly stand the test of time. It will become your first family heirloom; your legacy.

I OFFER THREE CHOICES OF ALBUM: CLASSIC, FINE ART & VINTAGE. WHATEVER YOU OPT FOR YOU CAN BE ASSURED OF:

  • Designer quality: The albums are sourced from an award winning lab and are not available on the high street.
  • Pre-design: Bearing in mind that I will capture your day with the content and layout of your album in mind, my time to then create the perfect representation of your day, something that you will love, is automatically included. You will, of course, then be invited to approve the proofs before it is sent off to the lab
  • Sizes: The standard album size is 14x10” and comprises 40 pages that can typically accommodate 120 photographs. Larger sizes and additional pages are available
  • Re-touching: Because a huge amount of pride goes into the albums the images themselves will be fully re-touched in my signature style and presented at their very best.
  • Colour reproduction: A lot of effort goes into ensuring 100% colour calibration between my equipment and the lab to ensure colours are printed correctly and as I intended
  • Gift Boxed: Each album is presented in a premium presentation box to ensure that your album, and with it your day and your legacy, lasts for generations to come
  • Parent Albums: Downsized (but with same content and layout) versions of any of the above are available at £195 for 1 or £295 for 2.
