About Glasspool Photography

Hello there, I'm a highly experienced photographer based on the Oxfordshire/Gloucester border. I now have over 10 years of experience in wedding and portraiture photography. I am highly passionate about capturing creative, fun, relaxed and unique images for you, which will hopefully be treasured forever. I offer a highly affordable wedding photography service in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Berkshire. I aim to capture the most important moments from your special day traditionally, with flair and creativity. In addition, I will blend in subtly with your guests, in a non-obstructive and relaxed manner in order to capture those more subtle and unique one-off moments in a reportage style of photography. My clients have always said that I am very easy to work with and I take pride in working closely with you, getting to know you a little in order to understand your unique needs for this important moment in your lives. My rates are very transparent and highly affordable. I charge on a time-basis in order to keep your budgeting simple and clear - charging £80 per hour plus subsistence provision and fuel costs - see details below. There's a minimum bookable period of 2 hours. That's it! There are no extra charges or hidden extras. I can also create albums for you at an extra cost which varies depending on your individual requirements. Contact me to get a quote for your special day or simply for a relaxed informal chat about how I could meet your photographic requirements.

  • "Relaxed, creative and unposed wedding photography"
    Lien on 12 December 2017

    We held our wedding at a beautiful venue in the meadows just outside Oxford. A most picturesque location that our photographer Alan took advantage of, taking relaxed atmospheric pictures of both our guests, ourselves and the stunning surroundings. Beforehand Alan had taken the time to listen to our wishes and held true to his promise not to intervene but to take unposed snapshots. One of our wishes was to have a family portrait in which we would be looking out onto the river and the meadows, not an easy task considering there were several babies involved, and the weather was being very temperamental. But Alan stayed good-humoured and patient while trying to gather the whole family gang to take a picture, and the result was spectacular,. I would recommend Alan highly to everyone who dreams of a magical but relaxed wedding and a photographer who can capture true love, friendship and emotion without being intrusive.

  • "Relaxed and fun August 2017 wedding"
    Lydia on 14 November 2017

    From the preliminary planning session to the Big Day, Alan was professional and easy to work with. He captured lots of natural moments throughout the day by blending in as well as some staged shots which were expertly orchestrated with good humour. The photos arrived quickly after the wedding and we, our relatives and friends love them - they reflect the day beautifully. Thank you!!

An average all-day wedding costs approx' £650-£900 all-in. (Not including a photo album).

What services do you offer?

Wedding day and pre- wedding day photography. Also portraiture photography

What does the wedding package include?

I have many options to suit your individual needs. I like to meet face-to-face with clients twice - once to understand your requirements and another time to do a recce' of the location with you. I offer the initial meeting FREE OF CHARGE and the venue recce' is chargeable at my standard rate - but this would normally come under the entire package price as quoted beforehand.

How far in advance should I contact you?

As early as possible but please always do check for last-minute availability.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?


Are you able to travel?

I can travel up to 60 miles from my location in West Oxfordshire.

What is the charge for travelling?

I charge an hourly rate of £40 for travelling time, each way, + fuel @ 45p per mile. This keeps your budgeting very simple.

What style of photos do you take?

Traditional and reportage - I like to take fun, relaxed photos and use unusual angles and strong lighting to create unique images

Canon 5D mk2 and a Canon 40D. A Miriad of lenses. I usually use reflectors and lamps rather than flash for a more natural lighting effect.

2 weeks

Do you send all the photos taken?

Almost - I remove images that haven't come out well or that are repetitions - plus I will remove images where subjects have their eyes shut etc. I usually create multiple versions of some of the best shots - i.e. b&w and cropped versions of larger original colour images.

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

I have an assistant with me if necessary and as requested - there is an additional cost for the second photographer - please check rates with me.

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

I have contacts in the unlikely event that this should happen. I also offer a no-show guarantee.

Sometimes - only at the bride & grooms request.

£80 per hour - 2 hours minimum.

Card, bank transfer and cheques.

How do you work?

Professionally and with care. I can organise guests effectively with firmness and joviality - whilst also being able to disappear into the crowd and take reportage images of candid moments in a relaxed and unobtrusive manner.
