About Simon Booth Photography

Based in Hastings, East Sussex, Simon Booth is a photographer with over 25 years' photography experiece. While Simon has taken on many projects in his time, wedding and portrait photography are his specialisms. Above all else, he simply loves to capture people and emotions. 

Simon shoots in a reportage style, offering relaxed, candid, natural shots captured with a long lens, allowing him to be discreet and unobtrusive. With this style, Simon is able to document the day and people's actions as they happen rather than forcing a moment for camera. Simon specialises in creating truly stunning Bride & Groom portrait shots, but with a relaxed, informal aproach. 

Simon would love to capture your big day and would be delighted to discuss it with you.

  • "Simon is fabulous"
    Farah on 11 December 2018

    Our wedding venue recommended seven wedding photographers. Having looked at all seven websites, Simon was the only one we contacted. His work speaks for itself – it’s a beautiful mix of formal and informal imagery that captures the joy, intimacy and meaning of a wedding. From my initial conversation with him on the phone, to our pre-wedding meeting at the venue, and the wedding itself, Simon was professional, friendly and he listened intently to what we wanted. He put our guests at ease – he has such a gentle way about him. We highly recommend Simon, he is fabulous

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

Packages from just £495.

What services do you offer?

Full coverage from four hours up to ten hours. I also design and create stunning Wedding Photo-Books, with several options available, for a separate fee, between £150 - £250 depending on the size of the book and the number of pages. I can provide a Videographer too, if required. I have Full Public Liability Insurance.

What does the wedding package include?

An initial consultation with the couple, followed by a Pre-Wedding meeting at the venue, 4 - 6 weeks before the wedding. Photos are adjusted for optimum brightness, colour, contrast and skin tone. Clients receive between 350 - 450 images. Additional photoshop work (retouching, Black and White versions etc) on up to 20 images of the clients choice. Images delivered on a bespoke engraved USB encased in walnut, packaged in a beautiful engraved walnut presentation box.

How far in advance should I contact you?

Im happy to arrange a meeting or take a booking at any time.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No.

Are you able to travel?

Yes, Im happy to travel up to about 30 miles from Hastings.

What is the charge for travelling?

I don't charge extra for travelling.

What style of photos do you take?

Classic, stunning Bride & Groom portraits, and Family / Group shots. But mostly I take lots of natural, candid shots in an unobtrusive way, and a few fun and quirky shots too.

What kind of technology do you use?

I use a Canon 7D, and top of the range lenses.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I try not to use a flash, preferring natural light. I use long lenses to capture people from a discreet distance, so often they are unaware of being photographed, this way I can get wonderful, candid portraits.

What kind of equipment do you use?

Just my camera, lenses and if needed, a flash.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

No - I send all the good images directly to my clients on a USB memory stick.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I deliver the photos to the clients two weeks after the wedding.

Do you send all the photos taken?

No, I take around 2,000, and from these I only select the best shots, resulting in between 350 - 450 images.

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

I work alone.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

Yes, I have a very good back-up photographer.

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

I sometimes put 3 - 5 of my favourite images from a wedding on my Facebook Business page, but if a client does not want me to do this, I completely respect their decision.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

A bit of both.. I charge £495 - £550 for the first five hours, and then charge £60 - £70 for additional hours.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Yes, I'm happy to work extra hours.

How do you charge extra time?

I charge £70 per hour.

What are the forms of payment?

Ideally I accept payment via online Bank Transfer, but if that is not possible, then cash or cheque is fine.

How do you work?

Im very amiable with clients and their guests, but I take an unobtrusive approach, Im quiet, polite, respectful, attentive, but always very friendly with guests. It depends on the client, sometimes they like to involve me throughout the day, sometimes we have very little contact, and they just leave me to it.
