Why I may not be for everyone...
...I'm not all 'lovey-dovey', I won't cry at your wedding and you won't find me sharing stories about 'how your dress is more lovely than any other bride's'. That's just not me, and frankly, I haven't got a clue which dress is more lovely. If you want that person you might be better off hiring your mum to take the photos.
But. If you want someone to be the steady hand by your side, charismatic towards your nan and to appear engaged in a conversation with your weird uncle Ron about his anecdotes of motorway service stations then read on.
What you really need to hear is this: just like the other vendors at your wedding you'll want someone who is professional and exceptionally competent at what they do but at a fair price. For me, that means taking great photos of your wedding and making sure you look as beautiful in your images as you feel on the day.
If this is actually what you need then let's do this!
What style of images do I create?
I consider myself to offer a combination of documentary and traditional wedding photography. This means I offer formal group shots and I blend into the background to capture the rawest of emotions head on without orchestrating the shot.
What I offer
Each photo package shown below includes:
- A pre-wedding consultation to chat through all the details of your day
- A call with any of our supporting photographers or videographers closer to your wedding day
- All the digital image files from the day, expertly edited in my signature style
- A password protected online gallery to share with your friends and family
My wedding packages are based on coverage and media type requested. Each can be customised so that you get what you really need, but to make comparison easier between myself and other photographer/videographers that you may be interested in I have outlined my most requested service packages below.
The packages below include a voucher for selecting from my printed products catalogue. I'd hate to restrict you from getting an album or framed print if you wanted one but it wasn't included in the package and so this gives you the flexibility to include the items you really want.
For smaller weddings where only coverage of the ceremony and some time with the newly wed couple afterwards is required.
Includes £300 product voucher
Includes 3-minute highlights film
Orrest Most Wanted!
Coverage includes pre-ceremony preparation through to the evening entertainment
Includes £600 product voucher
Includes 4-minute highlights film + speeches film
As for 'Orrest' but also includes coverage of family dinners and parties on the night before or lunchtime the following day.
Includes £800 product voucher
Includes 5-minute highlights film, + full ceremony & speeches films
Printed Product Price List
Photos are best when printed out. On this page you will find what products I offer clients and their associated prices.
These are a fantastic way to add something bespoke to any wedding photo reel and also gives couples an even more important benefit - 'trying before you buy'. Let me explain.
When you invest in a wedding photographer, your first thought might be about price, but really, it should be about personality. After all there's no point having a cheap photographer next to you on your wedding day all day if you can't stand them.
As well as being a 2 hour portrait session for you and your loved one to show your identity in print, it gives you a chance to take me for a test drive to see if we're a good fit.
This is a standalone product - £200 incl 3x 10" x 8" loose prints.
If you commit to the Orrest or Brandt wedding packages after having an engagement shoot with me, I'll deduct half the cost of your engagement shoot off your wedding package bill.
Wedding Announcement Images
This is a quick turnaround on 3 edited images from the day that allow you to announce to the world, usually by your own social media channels, that you have got married. This is a highly sought after option that allows couples to be the ones to tell the world what has happened using the images you've paid to be taken. NOTE: for the best results, please inform the wedding party not to post before you do!!!
Only available on Orrest & Brandt - £100
Second Photographer or Videographer
A second 'shooter' gives greater number, range and perspective of images from your wedding. If an album or video are products you're keen on having this option makes a difference.
Available on all packages - From £150
The full uncut version of your ceremony. The 'Woah's' to the 'I do's', uncut, mic'd up and ready to replay to your heart's content - £200.
Guest's Best Wishes Video
If you're opting for videography, why not add this brucey bonus to your film. The Guest Best Wishes extra will give your wedding guests an opportunity to say nice things to you on camera that can be collated into a separate film. Film lengths are based on how much footage is taken from guests but I aim to have enough footage to produce a video that's around 2-3 minutes long.
Available on all videography packages - From £200.
Additional Photographer Time
More shooting time added to your photo package - per hour - £100
Additional Video Time
Want more footage shown in your videos? Add it with this optional extra - £50 per 30 seconds footage
Alison & Paul
We honestly couldn't have wished for a more organised, calm (and calming) and charming photographer to capture our special day - Al was so good with everyone, even when things got a bit chaotic and he had to boss people around. Al was great!
He did an amazing job and everyone commented on how great he was with our guests. We are so grateful and couldn't have chosen a better person to capture our special day.
Kate & Stuart
Really recommend Al - he did the photos at our wedding and they were fantastic and great quality. Really good value for an awesome end product, and Al himself is personable and friendly.
Sophia & Kyle
We absolutely love our photos. Al did an amazing job - and many family and friends have actually said that he's captured them amazingly well! I can’t believe how he managed to get so many of Kyle laughing and smiling, which is nice - Kyle's mum was made up.
Kim & Larry
Al did a great job. We were pleased we asked him to take our photos.
