Want some creative, natural Photography for your wedding, business or living room wall? Then get in touch and let chat photography.

Prices start from £250 a day, but remember it takes as long to edit the pictures as it does to take them, so a typical full day shoot will be 2 x £250. I have a few other dedicated packages below too, so take a look and get in touch if you have any questions.

Natural weddings

Weddings are all about memories, and that’s exactly what we want to capture. Using a documentary shooting style, and a sprinkle of Photoshop magic, we capture the feel and emotions of your special day, and not just static group shots. A secret kiss; kids playing in the gardens; parents welled-up with happiness; friends joking and dancing. These are the things that make a wedding memorable. That’s what we photograph. See Ben’s wedding gallery and some example wedding books.

Of course, you get a say in what appears in the pictures too. We’ll chat to you prior to the big day to find out exactly what look you’re after, who should appear in the shots, and confirm a list of specific images. If you forget anything, don’t worry, you and your friends can ask us to take any extra special pictures on the day too

Build the package that’s right for you with our bolt-on system.

Two photographers!

We also provide the unique opportunity of having two experienced and creative photographers attend your special day. The advantage of this set-up is simple – we can double the number of great image for your wedding album. While one of us is taking formal shots, another is free to seize the all-important impromptu opportunities that are normally missed. Our pricing is very reasonable too. See below for more details

Bolt-on offers

Rather then offering a clumsy one-size-fits-all photography solution, you can choose precisely what you want (and what you don’t) using our bolt-on extras. This way you’re in control of the cost and the final pictures. Start with the foundation package, described below, then add the optional bolt-on services that are right for you.

FOUNDATION PACKAGE ~ £420

This is our budget wedding package that offers everything that you really need, and omits the stuff you don’t. If you want any additional services and images, simply add the relevant bolt-ons from the panel below.

ARRIVAL TO POST-CEREMONY GROUP PICTURES
We’ll take pictures for around 3 hours and capture the most important moments.

BONUS WEDDING PICTURES
Depending on the time-frame and your ceremony, we may also be able to set up and capture additional shots too, including the cutting of the cake and other formal portraits.

50 IMAGES ON A CD (APPROX.)
We’ll put the best images on a CD for you so you can make as many prints as you like.

BASIC IMAGE ENHANCEMENT
All images receive basic software enhancements from our experts to make sure they are punchy and vibrant, and you look your best.

PHOTOGRAPHY ASSISTANT & CO-ORDINATOR
To make sure the photography is swift and runs smoothly, our co-ordinator, Lucy, will be on hand.

WEDDING BREAKFAST + 50 ADDITIONAL IMAGES ~ £200
Bridging the gap between the ceremony and the wedding breakfast, we will have lots of opportunity to capture more informal shots of your guests. At the breakfast itself, we can take pictures of the tables, the food, the flowers, the speeches, cutting of the cake, and many other detail shots. We may even be present to take photos of the first dance. As a bonus, we’ll put around 50 extra images on a CD for you to keep.

PRE-CEREMONY PICTURES ~ £75
Depending on the time-scale and exact plan of the day, we’ll take pictures of the bride (and possibly the groom too) preparing for the wedding. We’ll also take pictures of the bride’s transport. For a more comprehensive set of images, two photographers are recommended.

SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER + 50 ADDITIONAL IMAGES£200 ~ £250 (half/full day)
With two of our photographers present, we’ll literally be able to be in two places at once. As a result you’ll get even more great shots – see above for more info. We will also be allowed extra time to find different viewpoints and capture more of the pre-ceremony preparations.

PREMIUM WEDDING BOOK + ADVANCED ENHANCEMENTS£150 ~ £115 (duplicates)
We only use the best printers and we always recommend the breathtaking 30x30cm book with special photo-quality paper. It’s not like any other printed book you’ve seen. The heavy-weight, satin finish pages give true photo quality images. They are also bound in a clever way to virtually eliminate the centre crease, allowing the book to lay flay on the table. We’ll throw in unto 42 pages but you can buy more if needed for just £17.50 per 8-pages. To get a great layout, we’ll apply our advanced Photoshop treatment where needed, and match picture styles so the pictures are bold and sit together perfectly. If you want multiple copies of the album then take advantage of our generous discount. Ask to see examples of our wedding books.

Children at play

A photograph is not just a record of events. It should be emotional too and packed with personality. Our aim is to do all this and capture memories as well, so you can enjoy looking at the images for years to come.

Forget posed shots and mottled studio backgrounds. Unconventional images require an unconventional approach. You don’t need to come to our studios. Instead, we’ll come to your home, or a location that’s special to you, to take informal pictures of your little ‘ens running, playing and having fun. It’s the stuff that you get to experience everyday which most other photographers overlook.

What you get…

Our package is simple. You’ll get a photographer (Ben) and an able assistant (Lucy), for up to two hours. We’ll keep playing, experimenting and taking pictures until we’re certain we have a range of high-quality, dynamic image to share with you. It’s completely stress-free for the kids because they don’t have to do anything that they wouldn’t normally do.

Our big prints are affordable!

After the shoot we’ll upload the best pictures to this site, and give login details so you can view them and other can’t (unless you send them the detials, of course). You can then choose which you want printed out, and the size you want them – you’re in charge of the costs. Our large prints are a fraction of the cost of the competition, but don’t think the quality is worse. If anything it’s better. We’re passionate about pictures and simply want you to enjoy them big. Because we make prints all the time, we’re able to make huge savings, and we pass this value directly to you. Big prints have real impact and don’t get lost when hung on a wall.

Environmental portraits

If you want a portrait that’s more then a cheesy mug shot taken against a plain background, then you’ve come to the right place. We specialise in taking atmospheric and emotional photographs that have tons of personality and interest. Using dramatic lighting and interesting locations the results are more artistic and reflect the true character of the sitter. We work hard to make sure the images really earn a place on your wall or mantelpiece.

Every photo is unique as tailore for you, we’ll even consider the colour scheme of the room it’s the going to hang in (if that’s important to you). It’s a collaborative work so we urge you to input your ideas as well your own, to make sure the end result is something you’ll be happy to live with.

Choose your style

Take a look in our portraits gallery, in magazines, and elsewhere online, to find a style that you really like. Think about pose, location, colour, mood, and the quality of the light. Perhaps you want a photo in your home with your dog or while busying yourself with favourite hobby. We’ll take your ideas, mix it with our own unique styling and produce and image that’s perfect for you.

Of course, if you’d prefer to take a back seat and let us decide what will make a good photo, then we’ll be happy to do that too. You’ll get great images either way. If you want to talk more about the options available to you, then drop me a line.
