  • "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 a digital package worth £ 1300. This includes 12 hour coverage, approximately 500 high resolution, individually edited photos. A private, on-line gallery where you can download and print your images and share, with family and friends. You will also have access to a mobile app to share images on social media.

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 12 hours 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 world wide.

What does the wedding package include?

I offer a Digital Package for £1300. This includes coverage for 12 hours on your day, approximately 500 individually edited images displayed on a private web-gallery for you to download and order prints. Optional extras are a pre-wedding shoot. Which I really recommend! This is will make you more relaxed on your wedding day as you would have had experience of me taking your pictures. One thing less to worry about.!! I love albums!! So if this is your thing I am more than happy to design a top quality bespoke wedding album for you- available in various sizes. There is simply no better way to summarise the most important day if your life!! I am also able to arrange bespoke wall art that would compliment your home interior. Then for the adventurous ( venue dependant) I can offer beautiful arial view wide angle images taken by drone.

How far in advance should I contact you?

I normally take bookings from 6 months in advance. But, please ask for availability if you are a last minute wedding. Mid-week weddings are becoming more popular.

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 within a 70 mile radius from where I live.

What is the charge for travelling?

No extra charges for travelling if you are getting married within 70 miles from where I live.

What style of photos do you take?

I believe in taking natural photographs of you, friends and family. I will not ask you to pose in awkward ways. 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 Canon 5D Mark IV and top quality professional Canon lenses Prime or Zoom. For dance moves I use a professional PROFOTO off camera fash system or subtle fill-in flash when needed.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

In essence, 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 on-line gallery of approximately 500 individually edited photos. You will also be able to download and order prints of all your favourites to share with family and friends. I am also happy to show my favourite 10 sneaky peeks of your day, three days after your wedding to share with your friends on social media.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I aim to deliver a fully edited, on-line gallery within 4 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 images.

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

I tend to work alone for weddings of up to 80 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. I will in no circumstances use your images for commercial gain. 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 for a 12 hour day. Please look at the optional extras on my website should you wish to have longer coverage.

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 12 hour coverage. Please get in touch if you require more or less hours. Extra hours are charged at £200 per hour.

What are the forms of payment?

Payment is taken via on-line bank transfer only. This comprises of the initial £200 booking fee and the balance due one calendar month in advance of your wedding date.

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.
