  • "Katy & Chris"
    This testimonial was entered by Special Day Photography on 21 December 2017

    From start to finish Jon was professional, discreet and an all round great character! Having a "stranger" around on the biggest day of your life did not feel that way at all. He really blended into the celebrations and captured truly beautiful shots of our day. We were also so impressed at the beautiful wooden presentation box that our prints and USB arrived in. Thanks to Jon we have "forever memories" from our Wedding!

    This testimonial was entered by Special Day Photography on 21 December 2017

    Right from the beginning Jon & Scott were incredibly professional whilst also being extremely accommodating to whatever we requested of them. In the planning stages they helped out wherever they could, and on the day itself they were so helpful and were fantastic with the guests - from rounding up the family for group photos to talking to the kids when they didnt want to stand still and pose. They helped create the relaxed fun atmosphere we wanted of the day whilst never getting in the way of the proceedings. All of this is important in a wedding photographer but nothing in comparison to the photos/videos themselves. When we received our beautiful box with our usb of photos we poured a glass of wine and watched a slideshow of the day from beginning to end. Every new photo made me gasp and brought a tear to my eye! They really captured all the best moments and showed some beautiful natural photos that we will treasure. My only slight issue is that I cant possibly choose between the photos as to which I should have printed and hung up on the wall... Looking forward to seeing the albums and video now! Thanks Jon & Team for capturing such beautiful memories for us! Angela & James x

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

We have packages starting at £795. This is for our Silver package, which includes a full day coverage plus a USB box and online gallery. Other packages are available which include videography and wedding albums.

What services do you offer?

We do both wedding photography and videography. We're also making our own handmade photo booth, which should be ready in a few months time.

What does the wedding package include?

All our wedding packages include a custom engraved wooden USB box, which has your wedding date and names on it. You also get a free online gallery to look at the images and send the link to family and friends. Our Gold and above packages include a brilliant 8x11" lay flat wedding album, curated by us and sent out to you. The Diamond package includes all the above, plus two more parent books, similar to the main wedding album, as well as a videographer for the day to capture footage.

How far in advance should I contact you?

As quickly as possible - the busiest days of the years are weekends so they get booked years in advance. We're currently taking bookings up to four years away currently.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No - all our packages have full day coverage from bridal prep to first dance.

Are you able to travel?

Yes, we have cars so travel around the country for weddings. We can also travel internationally.

What is the charge for travelling?

Free if under a 50 mile round trip - above that its £10 per 50 miles.

What style of photos do you take?

Fine art photography - not strictly just one pigeonhole of photography. We take elements of photojournalism such as shooting the guests having a great time, shoot it in a lifestyle and editorial way like you'd see in a magazine and also throw in some beautiful portraits for good fun.

What kind of technology do you use?

All our pictures are edited on a professional photography studio computer, with calibrated screens and a custom profile on our local printing lab for photos.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

We try to make the day as easy going as possible, we're your friend, not someone who is going to command you around and give you photos where you look forced. When you trust us, you relax and the fun of the day really shines through.

What kind of equipment do you use?

We use high end Canon gear, including a full frame Canon 6D. We also use a film camera - an EOS 5 which uses the same lenses but lets us shoot rolls of film.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Yes - we have a password protected photo gallery attached to our website. I can also enable a pin number to let a few users download the entire folder of images, if you want to send the wedding photos to a distant relative.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

We aim to get all weddings completed within a month of the wedding date, but can sometimes take longer if it's a summer wedding.

Do you send all the photos taken?

No - nobody wants to see lighting test shots of the floor or people with their eyes closed!

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

When it comes to just a photography day, we generally shoot alone, but will sometimes have a second photographer to assist or shadow us. Its a great way for starting photographers to learn about the wedding industry.

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

Yes, we work with a group of local trusted photographers, if for some unforseen incident occurs we will contact a secondary photographer as quickly as possible.

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

We give the couple the reproduction licence to use the images - you can print, share and upload the pictures online. The photographer still retains the copyright for legal reasons.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Per event, with the package agreed for in advance.

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

Of course - we can work as long as our batteries will let us!

How do you charge extra time?

If you'd like us to stay past our standard finishing time, we charge at £70 an hour.

What are the forms of payment?

We take both the deposit and final remainder balance via a bank transfer to a separate photography bank account, so we can track any incoming finances easily.
