Wedding Photography Prices & Packages

Finding wedding photography prices can be difficult. I like to keep things simple and upfront, so I have made 3 packages that can fit every need and more importantly budget. You can use my online Wedding Photography Quote form so you can personalise your coverage and you will see how much it will cost instantly. No more searching for wedding photography prices, they are here and in full, nothing hidden.

If you are planning something a little different or you're heading abroad, then pop me over an email with all the details and I will get back to you so we can discuss your perfect coverage.

I will get in contact with you again about 2 weeks before your wedding to chat about all the finer details such as the formal group lists, timings and anything else you would like to discuss.

The Big Day

Coverage starts around 2 hours before the ceremony and finishes approximately at 8:30pm, after the first dance and a few party photos. We can chat about this before if you would like something a bit different but this is what usually works well.

Everything and anything is covered during the day including formal group photos, the portrait session, speeches, cake cutting and first dance, with no limits on how many photos I take. If I think it's worth it, I will snap it.

When will I get my photos

I will get to work on your photos normally the very next day and I will get them back to you within 4 weeks - this is normally much faster.

Your private online gallery will be uploaded with high and low resolution files, both in colour and black and white so you can share your day all over again with friends and family.

The Big Day

This package is very flexible and it's up to you when I start and finish but normally, I start 2 hours before the ceremony to capture bridal prep and then cover everything the Essentials package includes.

 

This 4 hour package suits smaller weddings and covers all the important parts of your big day.

When will I get my photos

I will get to work on your photos normally the very next day and I will get them back to you within 4 weeks - this is normally much faster.

Before your wedding

If you take advantage of the Free Wedding Photo Trial meeting, this is combined with your initial consultation however if you would rather just meet for a coffee, just let me know.

I will get in contact with you again about 2 weeks before your wedding to chat about all the finer details such as the formal group lists, timings and anything else you would like to discuss.

The Big Day

Coverage starts around 30 minutes before the ceremony and finishes once we have done the formal group photos and short portrait session after your wedding - this is usually 1.5 hours in total.

I will capture your ceremony and try to photograph as many natural shots of your guests seated - I do not have a limit of the number of photos I take so if you have 10 or 100 guests, I will get as many as I can.

After the ceremony, we do your formal group photos and then the portrait session before the coverage ends.

When will I get my photos

I will get to work on your photos normally the very next day and I will get them back to you within 4 weeks - this is normally much faster.

Your private online gallery will be uploaded with high and low res files, both in colour and black and white so you can share your day all over again with friends and family.

Printing Packages

If you have looked at my About Me page, you will know that I also do school photography. Because of this, I have my own mini dry-lab that I use for wedding photos too. The photos that come out of the printer are high quality inkjet prints that rival any online printing company - mainly because I have the same printers but they are calibrated to my screen I edit your wedding on.

There are 3 packages to choose from below but if you are looking for something different, then just get in touch or use the quote builder to customise your wedding package.

Gold

£170

  • 12x8" photo prints x20
  • 8x6" photo prints x 20
  • 7x5" photo prints x20
  • A6 'Thank You' cards x50
  • A6 'Save The Date' cards x50
  • Option to upgrade 'Save The Date' cards to fridge magnets (£45)

Silver

£95

  • 12x8" photo prints x10
  • 8x6" photo prints x 20
  • 7x5" photo prints x20
  • A6 'Thank You' or 'Save The Date' cards x50
  • Option to upgrade 'Save The Date' cards to fridge magnets (£45)

Bronze

£40

  • 12x8" photo prints x10
  • 8x6" photo prints x 10
  • 7x5" photo prints x10

How do the printing packages work?

Once you have received your wedding photos, all you need to do is send me a list of the filenames and sizes that you would like printed. No need to send the photos, I have them already! I will print them and post them out to you.

 

Your 'Save The Date' cards or magnets will use an image from your Free Wedding Photo Trial (you can send me one you already have if you prefer) with your 'Thank You' cards using one from your wedding day. I have a choice of 3 templates for each item so all you need to do is select one and I will take care of the rest.

What will I receive?

Your photo prints will be produced on Fujifilm lustre (semi-gloss/matt) paper using my own pro-lab printer. As I do all the printing myself, I can ensure the image you see on screen is what comes out of the printer as I have my equipment all calibrated to work with each other.

 

Your 'Save The Date' and 'Thank You' cards are A6 size (105 x 149mm) and printed on 300 gsm paper which feel great in-hand. They are both un-folded and single-sided so you have the option of writing a personalised message on the back. If you don't feel like writing a message, then they look great without, unlike with traditional folded cards.

 

If you have chosen to upgrade to the 'Save The Date' fridge magnets, these have an internal photo size of 70 x 45mm with an approximate external size of 77 x 51mm (3x2").

What are the delivery times?

 

Once you have sent me the filenames for your prints, cards or magnets, I try and get these printed and posted out to you within a week. However, during the busy times this can take up to 2 weeks. If you have a deadline, please get in touch first and I will be able to give you a more accurate timescale based on my diary.

Wedding Photography Prices - Extras

Below are the optional extras that I offer on all of my packages above in addition to the wedding photography prices you see. If you would like to add any to your wedding, just use the quote builder above to get an accurate price for your day.

Early start or late finish - from £100

If you would like me to start earlier to capture more of your prep or finish late so we can do some sparkler photos at night, you can add extra hours.

Adding extra hours to the Essentials or Essentials+ packages is very popular. This can allow more time for natural photos of your guests or have a little more bridal prep added at the start.

Based on the All Day package with a 2pm ceremony, I would start at 12pm and finish approximately at 8:30. This is what I cover at 90% of the weddings I photograph but every one is different. From experience, adding more than 1 hour in the evening will not produce many more photos than what is already included with the All Day package. This is simply because as soon as the evening buffet comes out, guests will sit down and no one wants a photo of themselves eating! Unless you have something special planned like sparkler photos, my normal 8:30 end time will suit most weddings.

Capture All Camera - from £125

A DSLR camera sent to you so that you can capture all the build-up in the days leading up to your big day or for the afterparty the next day.

Once I get the camera back, I edit the photos you have taken in my style and include them with your wedding photos. This is a perfect add-on for when friends and family come down a few days before the big day or if you have a smaller cool-down party the day after.

Don't worry, the camera is really easy to use and it will posted to you ready to go on auto mode so that you don't have to worry about the settings. However, if you do feel adventurous, I will show you how to use the basic manual modes too; ideal if you want to take photos with the natural background blur you see in many of my photos.

There are 3 coverage options to choose from:

  1. The camera posted to you 3 days before your wedding - Price: £125
    • The camera can be posted to any UK residential or business address so that you are guaranteed to receive it.
    • To return the camera, you just hand it back to me on the day of your wedding

 

  1. I personally give you the camera at your wedding so you can use it in the days after - Price: £125
    • To return the camera, just take it to your local Parcelforce drop off shop 2 days after your wedding and they will take care of everything. Postage is already included so there is nothing to do apart from pack it safely.

 

  1. Complete wrap around coverage to include both the build-up and after party - Price: £200
    • All postage is included so all you have to do it snap away.

USB drives - from £7

If you would like your photos on a USB, I can either send them to your address or I can post them direct to friends and family. Just let me know where you would like them sent and I will take care of it all.

Wedding Albums - £450

Long gone are the times when you would automatically receive a wedding album from your photographer. This was common place because the photos were taken on film rather than digital and with online printing companies offering products at extremely competitive prices, it has become easy to get your wedding day printed. However, some still like to have an album printed by their photographer and I can offer that for you. Get in contact if you would like more information about wedding albums.

Wedding Photography Prices and Packages - Booking Information

To make a booking with me, I ask for a 20% non-refundable deposit (20% of coverage price not including any extras) along with a completed booking form. As soon I have received this, your booking is confirmed with me and I will re-send your Free Wedding Photo Trial photos if you took advantage of this. The 20% non-refundable deposit will be deducted from your final balance which is due 4 weeks before your wedding.

Get in contact with me if you have any further questions or would like to book me for your big day!
