COTSWOLD WEDDING PHOTOGAPHY

authentic, natural, relaxed

MY APPROACH

Cotswold based Photographer documenting your unique love stories across the West Midlands, South West, UK and beyond. A wedding day is filled with so many crazy, wonderful emotions and my aim as your wedding photographer is to capture each and every one of them, helping you relax and having fun with you whilst I do.

PHOTOJOURNALISTIC STYLE

laughing and in love, the best way to be

It’s more than simply curating, creating, and capturing your memories. It’s about you simply enjoying those moments, and me blending in with your guests so those photographs are truly felt, not just seen. I take a photojournalistic approach, while perfectly and seamlessly blending that approach with some gentle guidance for those all important portraits. But I promise you, they’re anything but “stiff” or awkward. They’re true to you, in the moment, and curated with intention.

MORE THEN JUST ONE DAY

it’s a whole experience

The experience you have both planning and on your wedding day means everything. This whole journey together should be one you enjoy and cherish that culminates in an awesome day celebrating. When booking me as your wedding photographer, I feel that quality should be equally as paramount as the whole experience when working together. I want you to be smiling, laughing, and feeling at ease throughout the entire process. I want you to trust in me 100%, think of me as an unexpected bonus bridesmaid. I’ll be celebrating with you every step of the way.

MY PROCESS

Having worked in the Wedding and Event Industry for 10+ years I use my extensive knowledge and experience to help guide you from the moment you book.

Step 1

BOOKING

After we have discussed all the details of your special day, I am able to provide you a personalised quote based on your requirements. Your quote is sent to you via my online portal and from there you can go ahead and confirm the booking. Please note I only take a limited number of bookings each year to ensure you have the attention you deserve so dates are only held for two weeks.

Step 2

PLANNING

On receipt of your completed contract and booking fee we start to plan, and the fun happens. Having been in the wedding industry for 12 years I have compiled lots of information you may find useful. This includes a detailed timeline guide to help you plan the order of your day. In addition to all the e-meetings, you would like with every package we have a location visit. The ideal chance for us to meet in person, get to know each other a little more and have a walk around your beautiful venue whilst you tell me all about your plans.

Step 3

WEDDING DAY

The big day is here. Everything planned falls into place!

My aim is simple, to help you relax and enjoy your day whilst documenting those precious moments for you. As the day unfolds I will be there to capture your love story unobtrusively and naturally.

Step 4

DELIVERY

Within 1 week of your wedding a secure, online gallery is set up containing sneak peeks for you to enjoy until your full gallery is ready.

Usually around 3-6 weeks after your wedding date, when all your images have been edited in my unique style your gallery will be updated and your wedding photographs available for you to download in high resolution and unwatermarked.

STARTING PRICE

Full day wedding photography coverage in the Cotswolds starts from only £1245.

I am also able to offer ceremony only photography and half-day packages for shorter photography coverage. For full details of my wedding photography packages and what these include, please do get in touch.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long have you been a photographer?

I qualified with a BA Hons 12 years ago (wow that sounds like so long) and have always loved photography since then. I started working for a photography studio capturing all the wedding love but after going overseas and falling into a happy career as a Wedding and Event Manager I was happy keeping my photography to a hobby. Until two years ago, I enjoy it too much to not do it as often as I can! Since then I have upgraded all my equipment, refreshed my professional skills, worked with some absolutely awesome, more experienced photographers and basically photographed every chance I have had.

Do you have enough experience to photograph my wedding?

I have planned and coordinated hundreds of weddings before working full time for over a year documenting them. Trust me when I say, I know what is coming up next! I am more than just your wedding photographer, I am your little wedding sidekick who just happens to be documenting the day beautifully for you. I know when your emotions are going to kick in, and you will need a quiet moment or a good giggle. I know when the key moments from your day are going to unfold in front of us before you even realise what is happening (that will be the little love bubble you and the other half will be in). And I know what I am doing with a camera, so you really don’t need to worry.

Can we meet you?

Yes, please! I don’t need an excuse to sit and have a good cuppa and some wedding chit chat. I would love to meet with you before the big day. All of my photography packages come with a location visit before the big day which is the perfect opportunity! If the distance is a problem we can always set a skype date.

What photography equipment do you use?

I use top of the range professional Sony lenses and cameras. These enable me to capture the very best images even in low light situations (I’m looking at you churches).

Can we meet you?

Hell yes! I love to travel – the UK or overseas I can be there. Just message me for bespoke destination pricing.

Do you offer discounts for out of season or weekday weddings?

Not as standard, no. BUT never say never right? I like to think of my wedding photography packages as a starting point for both of us to work from and see where we end up based on your requirements and the date of your wedding.

What happens if we want to book you?

After we have discussed all the juicy details of your big day and you let me know you are 1000% happy with what we have planned I can send you over a wedding booking agreement and booking fee invoice. Once this has been returned and you’ve secured with the booking fee we can have as much contact or as little as you want. I can become your wedding bestie, or you can ignore me until 6 weeks before the big day (please don’t haha). 6 weeks before I will be in touch with a little wedding questionnaire for you complete and your final invoice. And then a few days before the big day, we will have a catch up on the phone to just make sure all the details I have are still correct and we haven’t had any last-minute changes I need to be updated on.

What is your deposit and when is the balance due?

Depending on the total package cost I ask for a non-refundable booking fee of 20% of your total balance to secure the date. The remaining balance is due 6 weeks before the wedding date. Or you can pay the remaining balance in instalments – whatever is easiest for you.

How long will I be waiting for my photographs?

OK so you will get a few sneak peeks the same week and then the rest of the images usually around 6-8 weeks after the big day. I do my best to get them to you as soon as possible as I know the wait is awful.

Have I missed anything?
