What does the wedding package include?
We don't like to promote packages as such because we will try to work wit you to put a 'package' together that suits your needs and as such you stay in control of your expenditure.Our normal price for all-day photography is £495, however, this is reduced by £100 to only £395 if we are confirmed as your wedding photographers within 14 days of our initial contact. This price includes all of our photography, i.e. Bridal preparation, church or ceremony venue, your reception to include arrival, reception, speeches, cutting the cake and we can even photograph a mocked/first dance. We can even stop off somewhere between your ceremony venue and reception for some additional photographs i.e. a park, beach, waterfall, place of sentimental importance. All of this is included in the price together with a Wedding Album with 20 photographs, this also includes an upgrade option, additional promotions are also applied as an added incentive.
How far in advance should I contact you?
The earlier the better especially during the peak season for weddings from May through to the end of September. The most we have ever been booked in advance was by five years two to three years are not uncommon and yet we have also had a very short notice wedding having had a phone call at 11 am on a Friday morning and two hours later we were photographing their wedding.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
Your photographer is dedicated 100% to your wedding and will not leave you until we have completed our photography with you, we will never do half a job.
Are you able to travel?
We travel all over the UK and abroad and in 2020 we will be photographing two weddings in Zante and we have over 100 weddings already confirmed for 2020 in the UK, our availability can be taken very quickly.
What is the charge for travelling?
As a rule, we don't charge for travelling, however, when we travel to weddings etc over 75 miles from our base all we ask is that we are met 50/50 o the cost of fuel. We don't charge by the mile that is ridiculously expensive if the total fuel cost is £20 (the client can verify this using good old google) all we ask if for £10 to help offset our costs. We work on low-profit margins and we want to keep our charges as affordable for clients as possible.
What style of photos do you take?
For wedding photography, our most called for style is traditional intermingled with some contemporary modern styles and reportage photography. We find that a mixture of styles works the best and gives the best variety.
What kind of technology do you use?
We use professional cameras and Lenses, I personally use Nikon D4, D3s, D800, D810 D700 and several professional lenses predominantly Nikon but also with a few Sigma art lenses. To do professional photography good cameras and equipment are a must but how to use them is even more important.
Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?
We approach any wedding or assignment as if it was one of our own. We photograph ina fun, friendly and very relaxed way. Nothing is worse than a photographer who is boring, weddings are a happy occasion so let's have fun after all if you laugh and smile we get great photographs and that is what we all want.
What kind of equipment do you use?
I personally use Nikon Cameras such as a D4, D3s, D800, D810 and D700 along with a D70 that is converted for infrared photography. I utilise 12 pro lenses for any assignment I need to photograph.
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
Yes, we use a secure online website where you will be able to view your photographs, you can also allow your family, friends or anyone you want to have access to your gallery to view and buy photographs if they want to.
What''s the delivery time for photographic report?
We always say please allow up to 14 days after a wedding for us to get your photographs online but very often we have them online within 24 hrs of the event, it all depends on the time of the year and the number of assignments we are photographing.
Do you send all the photos taken?
No photographer in the world ever does this, even Royal photographers, not every photograph we take will be up so standard, people could have eyes closed, perhaps an unflattering body posture, that type of photograph is filtered out but retained should the need arise for it to be resurrected, mind you that has never happened.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
We have a team of six professional photographers who are not only superb photographers but are really lovely caring people who take pride in their work, if they weren't up to our exacting standards we would never have them working for us.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
Always, nothing is left to chance we always have a photographer waiting in the wings so to speak if something happens unplanned i.e. a medical emergency, etc. This happened to me a few years ago when I was rushed into hospital with a burst appendix, one of our photographers stepped in on my behalf and photographed a lovely wedding.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
We retain the overall copyright of the photographs but if you choose to have digital copies of photographs we give you license to print and share your images with friends and family. We use photographs taken at weddings and events for advertising and display purposes only but we will never compromise client confidentiality.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
We can put a plan together for a day or more photography or we can charge by the hour it all depends on personal requirements.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Yes this happens quite often
How do you charge extra time?
There are no fixed fees we approach every assignment individually to make things as cost-effective as we possibly can.
What are the forms of payment?
We keep things simple and use bank transfers, some couples may want to pay by cheques and we can also take Pay Pal payments.
How do you work?
In a fun relaxed professional manner, don't take our word for it please see the reviews we have on facebook and google they have to be genuine and not 'artificially made up' because they have to originate for other clients accounts, we can prove everything we say but we want you to be happy, you are the best adverts we will ever have.
Why are your prices so much cheaper than so many other photographers?
We get asked this all the time we like to say we are not cheap but realistically affordable, the big difference is that we have photographed 180 weddings a year, we work on a low-profit margin whereas most photographers will photograph 25-50 weddings a year so they have to charge more to make the same amount of money. We want to and intend to give exceptional value for money.
There has to be a catch with the low prices you charge?
No there isn't a catch if there is we will photograph your wedding for free. We can prove that everything we say is right and one way for you to verify this is to see our reviews on facebook, they have to come from individuals accounts we cant make those up. If you are still unsure please come and see us and let us prove this to you.
Are you insured?
Oh yes and any photographer who isn't and there are a lot that arent are playing Russian roulette we have £2,000,000 public liability insurance.

From a Swansea Wedding
I first met Grev and Sharon at a wedding fayre down in the Liberty Stadium, Swansea. After previous quotes from many of the other photographers out there, i was pleasantly surprised by the prices that they have for what they offer. I took away a leaflet, but it didn't take much time to decide to book them. Getting my photos as an album and on a USB was dealt with promptly and with ease. They are extremely friendly and they make it all about you, they want the best for us to make sure you get the most for your money. They are so professional and friendly and I can't recommend them enough. I am beyond happy with my wedding album and would just like to say a massive thank you to Peter who was the photographer on the day and a massive thanks to you Grev and Sharon for being so efficient with my photo album. It's Perfect. :) xxxxSent on 18/12/2019
