Hampshire Wedding PhotographySophie & Ben We truly cannot thank you enough for our perfect wedding photos. We are delighted with the way you have captured our day — looking through the photos makes me remember the day as it was. The emotion, the laughter and the love amongst everyone there is so evident.   You were a consummate professional throughout the day and we barely noticed you were there, even though you clearly were in the heat of every moment!


Fancy looking at some Weddings?

Wedding Photography

I photograph in an informal style known as documentary wedding photography (it’s also called reportage wedding photography and wedding photojournalism too). This means I interfere with the events of your day as little as possible which produces relaxed and spontaneous images that show how individual your wedding is.

To keep things easy I’ve two collections to choose from. These are:

£1400

  • A beautifully handmade 10×10 inch album with 40 pages.
  • A pre-wedding meeting to discuss your day.
  • Up to 12 hours of photography, this easily covers the preparations through to your first dance.
  • An archival file with your photographs edited and ready to print.
  • A password protected online gallery to share with your family & friends.
  • Travel to your wedding within Hampshire.

£950

  • A pre-wedding meeting to discuss your day.
  • Up to 12 hours of photography, this easily covers the preparations through to your first dance.
  • An archival file with your photographs edited and ready to print.
  • A password protected online gallery to share with your family & friends.
  • Travel to your wedding within Hampshire.

A few common questions?

DO YOU TRAVEL OUTSIDE OF HAMPSHIRE?

I do, I travel all over the UK. Travel inside of Hampshire is included in my fee and heading outside of Hampshire is a little extra, with accommodation if it’s needed.

 

CAN WE ORDER PRINTS & PARENT ALBUMS?

You’d make my day if you did, photographs look so much better printed than on a computer screen. I’ve prints starting from £20 and parent albums are £150. If you want to see all of the prices then just let me know.

 

WE’RE NOT SURE WE WANT AN ALBUM, CAN WE ORDER ONE LATER?

You sure can! Wedding Albums start at £400 for a beautifully handmade 8 by 8 inch album with 40 pages. If you are thinking of getting an album feel free to chat with me to discuss the options

 

CAN WE HAVE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER TOO?

I love working with others as this means loads of extra moments get captured. So the answer is yes!

 

HOW LONG DO WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?

I normally deliver your photographs within four weeks of your wedding. You’ll get a few sneak peeks before then though!

WHEN SHOULD WE CONTACT YOU?

As soon as you can! If you leave it too close to your wedding day I might already be booked. You’ll also feel a lot more relaxed knowing that the photography for your wedding has been arranged.

 

WHEN SHOULD WE HAVE YOU ARRIVE?

Most couples like to have me start photographing during the Bride preparations in the morning. This is a great place to start the story as I can photograph the anticipation and emotion of the build up to your ceremony.

 

WHAT ABOUT GROUP SHOTS?

Don’t worry, I shoot these too. I recommend keeping the list below 10 groups as these can eat into your day and is quite boring for those waiting around for their turn.

 

DO WE NEED TO FEED YOU?

I always make sure I’ve enough food with me for the day but if you’d like to give me something hot then that would be amazing! All I would ask is that there’s no meat as I’m a veggie.

 

ARE YOU INSURED?

I’ve more insurance than I will hopefully ever need. I’ve public liability insurance (£2 million), professional indemnity, employers liability (for my assistants etc) and even product liability. Not forgetting my equipment is covered too!

About Me

Handmade WeddingI live on the south coast in the city of Portsmouth with my wife George. There’s some debate about how long you get to be newlyweds but I still count us in this bracket, we only got married this year after all! The picture of us was taken by our very own wedding photographer, Antony Turner! While choosing him we found that, even knowing the questions to ask, it was difficult to pick a photographer. If you do want to talk about your day get in contact.

001-Queens Hotel-7776Back to Portsmouth though, I’m a stones throw from the sea (although you’d need a good throwing arm to reach it and to stand on tiptoes to see it) which is great as there’s an abundance of ice cream and also a pain as there’s a ton of seagulls who also like ice cream. Over the past few years this city has been changing for the better. There’s now a thriving community of cafés, restaurants and independent shops and the art scene is getting more attention. If you are planning on visiting check out Strong Island’s site to see what’s going on.

If you’re wondering the photo above is the Queens Hotel just around the corner from me, it’s quite a grand venue for a wedding…
