  • "Couple Shoot- Patrick and Anna Davies"
    This testimonial was entered by Nel van Huyssteen Photography on 12 December 2018

    "I've always thought that the test a really good photographer is somebody who can capture the heart and sole of the subject. If that's what you are looking for, Nel is the one for you. The photos she took of Anna and I absolutely expressed the essence of our relationship- a sense of love with a bit of humour on the side." Patrick and Anna Davies- Hertfordshire

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

I offer three price packages. A Half Day Package- £1100 This package is great if you would only like part of your wedding day covered. An All Day Package- £1500- approx 10 hours All your wedding moments will be covered from getting ready in the morning through to your first dance. My Full wedding package- £1800-approx 12 hours You will have all the benefits of my- All Day Package- plus two hours extra dancefloor coverage. A second photographer will be available all day to make sure all angles and moments are captured. My full package includes: A handmade 12 inch X 12-inch fine art album with 10 spreads of your favourite photographs. Private online gallery with all your beautiful images to share and order prints and wall art. Edited high-resolution digital images available to download or presented on a USB.

What services do you offer?

First of all I would like to meet you personally to discuss your requirements. Every wedding is different and I feel this is one of the most important aspects. It is vital to build a good relationship with my clients. You will certainly feel more comfortable in front of my camera if you have met me before and have more natural pictures as a result. I love to turn up early to take photos of your beautiful venue. Then its time for the "getting ready" photos of you and all your bridesmaids with make-up prep, hair, chaos, stress and glasses of Champagne. A second photographer would capture your husband-to-be should you request it. I aim to take natural, beautiful photos just the way your day unfolds. Capturing memories of real people with real emotions. During my time with you, I aim to capture all your special moments from getting dressed to all the dance floor action. I am happy to stay until the final second if you wish. I am available for weddings in the UK as well as abroad.

What does the wedding package include?

All my packages include individually edited high-resolution images presented in a private online gallery for you to share with family and friends as well as order prints and wall art for your home. A private online slideshow featuring your best moments. A USB with your edited images for safekeeping. My full package has an added second photographer as well as a 12 by 12-inch fine art album.

How far in advance should I contact you?

I normally take bookings from 6 months in advance. But, please ask for availability if you have a last-minute wedding planned. Mid-week weddings are becoming more popular and I offer a 10% discount during the week.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No, never. Your wedding is the most important date in my diary!

Are you able to travel?

Yes, I love travelling anywhere around the globe. If you would like to get married in Japan, I will be there!! I am happy not to add extra travelling costs for weddings in the UK.

What is the charge for travelling?

I don't ask extra for travelling if you are getting married in the UK.

What style of photos do you take?

I believe in taking relaxed, natural, unposed photographs of you, friends and family. Your wedding day photos have to be a true memory of your unique day. When you look at your photos you have to say; 'Wow! That is us !!!' I am passionate about reflecting the real you , your personality and your family and friends.

What kind of technology do you use?

I use two cameras, both Sony-a7 iii mirrorless and top quality professional lenses Prime or Zoom. For dance moves, I use a professional off camera flash system or subtle fill-in flash when needed.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I am a documentary/storytelling photographer. Please visit my website to view my images and experience my style of photography at www.nelvanhuyssteen.co.uk

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use the latest up to date equipment that includes cameras and lenses as well as flash technology.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Yes. You will have access to a private online gallery of approximately 500 individually edited photos. You will also be able to share your gallery with friends and family as well as ordering prints.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I aim to deliver a fully edited, high-resolution online gallery within 4-6 weeks of your wedding day.

Do you send all the photos taken?

It would be very unusual for a professional photographer to send you all the unedited images. Depending on the size of your wedding this can be anything from 2000 to 8000 images. I will choose the best images (approximately 500) and edit each one individually. Modern RAW-technology allows photographers to take great numbers of images, unlike many years ago when film was the only option. You can be assured that your day will be fully covered and that you will receive the very best edited images.

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

I tend to work alone for weddings of up to 100 guests. A second photographer is essential if you have a larger wedding as we have to cover all possible angles. I have a network of great photography colleagues, who can help me with this task. Please be assured that I am always the main photographer at your wedding.

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

Yes, I have a network of professional colleagues who would cover me should I be medically unfit on the day. This would be very unusual!

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

You are covered by our pre-wedding contract. Images might be used on my website/ Hitched as part of my portfolio or feature on my blog only.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

My charges are per event and include all the image editing after your wedding.

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

Yes, please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

How do you charge extra time?

My package includes 10-12 hour coverage. Please get in touch if you require more or fewer hours. Extra hours are charged at £150 per hour. This charge also includes my time editing your photos.

What are the forms of payment?

I normally request a £250 booking deposit to secure your wedding date. The balance is due one month before your wedding.

How do you work?

First of all I would like to get to know you through our pre-wedding consultation. We can arrange a personal visit or a scheduled SKYPE call if time /distance prevents this. I am passionate about getting to know you and your individual requirements and take great care in attention to detail. You might like informal group shots but your mother may not. I will capture both if you wish. The choice is yours. In essence I have a documentary style. This means I like to take photos as the day unfolds, natural laughter, crying and joy. I want to capture the real you, images that provoke real emotion. In years to come, the moments that you will remember just as they happened and cherish forever. In essence your personality- the real you.
