Let’s cut straight to the chase first – these are my prices. (there’s a lot more text to read if you like, but at least you’ll know what I charge!)
I prefer to think about ‘Wedding Photography Prices’ as ‘Investments’. Why? Well, it’s simple really. Wedding photography may seem expensive at the time of purchase, but I see the long term value of what I provide.
Think of this – your grandchildren will be able to view your wedding album, but your laptop isn’t likely to last that long!
Everything else that you choose for your wedding is temporary – the cake is eaten, the flowers go in the bin, the drinks are drunk, the dress goes on eBay – but the wedding album lives on. Over time, the book becomes a historical record of your families for future generations. Our albums are handmade in Italy and the UK and provide a stunning way of showing your day to family and friends, both now and in the future. You could say that professional wedding photography is actually priceless.
I have deliberately kept my pricing structure as simple as possible, to keep with my ethos that the photography should be the least stressful part of your wedding. Please bear in mind that the prices shown below do not reflect a single day’s income – the investment includes the album and I routinely spend up to 5 days working on each couple’s wedding.
However, if none of my packages suit your needs, then please do get in touch with your specific requirements and I’ll give you a price. Click here to download our current price list for your own reference.
All packages* also have a 10% discount applicable for non-weekend weddings. There are also significant** discounts available for weddings in January, February and March. You will get, with all packages:
- A pre-wedding consultation at your venue to ensure that I understand all your requirements.
- I visit all venues that your wedding will be using to familiarise myself if it’s somewhere I’ve not shot before.
- Unobtrusive ‘documentary style’ photo coverage as well as time allotted to traditional family group shots and artistically directed (but natural feeling) shots of you as a couple.
- I will be with you for a minimum 8 hours – this is generally enough time to include the bride’s final preparations right through to the first dance. (only applies to Silver, Gold, Platinum & Diamond)
- I always bring a ‘shooting assistant’ with me to every wedding. They will help me out (bag carrying, lens swapping etc) as well as taking shots from other angles throughout the day.
- All the photos on a USB stick in a wooden display box (or DVD-R if you prefer) including black & white shots, with permission given for you to make unlimited prints for friends and family. For copyright reasons, any other uses must be cleared with me first.
- A post-wedding consultation to show the best photos from the day and to discuss your choice of album cover etc.
- Beautiful photographic heirloom albums, handmade in England or Italy.
The type of album you receive depends on the package you choose. (Please note that the Pure & Simple packages are NOT available on weekends save for November, January, February and March dates) The packages are as follows:

Customer satisfaction is the most important thing to me.
If the packages above don’t meet your budgetary needs, then don’t panic – call us for a special package of your own. I’m happy to negotiate with you to give you the best possible service for your budget. No matter what you can afford, the quality of my work remains the same. Nothing is fixed in stone – for example, many couples choose to upgrade their albums after the wedding. Here’s just some of the options you could add to your package:
