IT's all about the feels
ST ALBANS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Well, Congratulations!! Your probably here because your engaged and are starting to think about planning your wedding!
This is possibly the first time you’ve ever had to think about choosing a photographer to cover such an important day in your lives and the choice can simply be overwhelming, let's face it - there are literally thousands of us! Everywhere!
There are so many different styles of photography, different personalities and budgets for everyone. You need to make sure that you choose the photographer that really best suits you as a couple.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO CONSIDER IS HOW your chosen photographer makes you feel
Your photographer is going to be with you all day. Catpuring every moment.
You really need to make sure that you connect and feel totally comfortable around them, which is why I like to offer in person consultations and why I offer a complimetary engagement session as standard! This way, we have have spent time together twice before your big day, by this point we'll have laughed together, told stories and become real friends. I just want you to be 100% sure that you have picked the right photographer.
Here are a selection of my favorite images

Only need a couple of hours?
I know that one size doesn't fit all, so if you are having a smaller intimate wedding, or only need me for a few hours instead of the whole day (Monday-Thursday only) and i have some availability, I'll be happy to offer you my most basic package. Send me a message to find out more.
Ohh what could be more perfect than saying your vows somewhere hot with the most incredible views? I LOVE a destination wedding, so if you're planning your wedding abroad send me a message and we can have a chat, I cant wait to hear your plans!
Absolutely! Although I am based near St Albans in Hertfordshire, my pricing covers nationwide UK travel however if your venue is over an hour and a half away, I will need accommodation the evening before and the evening afterwards. I will not take the risk of being stuck in traffic on the morning of your wedding and after your day, honestly I will be tired and need the rest before a long drive home. I charge an extra £150 to cover hotels.
Of course! In fact, I insist that we do! Sure we could chat over zoom but it is not quite the same as meeting in person, the most important thing to consider when booking your wedding photographer is how they make you feel, so meeting in person to chat through all the details is perfect!
I am! This is something that is so important and some venues may ask to see proof, that's absolutely fine - just let me know and I can provide my certificate. I am insured with Aaduki and have Public Liability Insurance and Professional Indemnity Insurance to cover anything.
Touch wood, this has never happened. It would have to be something seriously catastrophic to make me miss your special day.
But, of course should anything happen, I have a large group of fantastic photographer friends who would be able to cover me last minute should the worse happen.
In this situation I would ask the photographer to shoot your wedding day and I would still edit the photographs in my signature style for you.
After your wedding day, I will cull your photographs, this means I remove any images that are not up to my standard, photos where someone may be blinking or duplicates. I include all good photographs in your gallery to complete your personal story.
Depending on the time of year your wedding is and how many guests you have attending this can be anywhere between 500 and 900 photographs in your final gallery.
Yes, I do not give out any unedited or RAW files.
All images are edited in my signature style which enhances the photograph and gives the images the look and feel that you can see within my portfolio.
I will also lightly retouch skin if this is needed. I am happy to remove anything that is not permanent, such as a spot, bruise or insect bite.
Oh yes, this probably should have been number 1!
You know what, its super rare that someone really loves having their photos take and I'm with you! It can feel awkward and unnatural. This is why I insist on the in person meeting and offer you a complimentary engagement session!
The engagement session is the perfect time to practice, to take your time and get comfortable, one with me and two, infront of the camera. Most of my couples say that the engagement session really helped them to relax and they felt much more prepared, knowing more what exact on their wedding day.
Ohhh absolutely! I love a wedding abroad! There is something super special about sunsets over sea and the most beautiful scenery.
Additionally to your photography collection price, you will need to cover my (and associate photographers) flights to your destination, 2 nights accommodation and a rental car.
Ping me a message, we can chat about this!
Amazing! The first step is to contact me and well arrange a short phone call, after this we will meet in my Hertfordshire home studio for your consultation where you can tell me all about your wedding plans! I can't wait to hear them!
After your consultation I will hold your date for 7 days. Please let me know as soon as you can either way.
If you choose to go ahead with me (YAY!) I'll need to take £300 deposit which will secure me to photograph your wedding day! You will also need to sign our contract and complete the booking form. The final balance is due 1 month before your wedding day.
I only take on a limited number of weddings each year so that I can give each of my couples the very best possible experience with me.
I do get booked up around a year in advance so I do advise that as soon as you know you want me, to not delay in contacting me.
Once you have secured me to photograph your wedding day, I will be in touch occasionally to see how your plans are going.
I will also be in contact with you to make arrangements for your engagement session! I can't wait for us to meet again!
Around the time that your balance is due I will send you a questionnaire to fill out and to please send me the details of all of your wedding suppliers, this is so that I can tag them on socials and show off their amazing work!
Of course, if you have any questions or photo ideas at any time, I am always on hand to answer them, once you've booked me, I'm yours. please feel free to text, call or WhatsApp me at any time.
I am so excited to show them to you!
After your wedding, I will put a sneak peak up for you within 7 days.
The rest of the gallery will be ready for you in around 8 weeks.
ARE YOU READY?
