My wedding coverage starts at £1,250 for coverage until the call for dinner and the high-resolution digital photos from the day. You can choose to add a range of extras to build your perfect wedding collection including coverage to dancing, a second photographer, beautiful storybook wedding albums, parent albums, an engagement shoot, and photo booth. Contact me to check avaialbilty for your date and if you would like me to build a bespoke collection for your wedding day.
In over a decade of shooting weddings, thankfully that situation has never come up. I always arrive early and make sure I understand the plans before the day. In the event something like that did happen I would endeavour to put in place a replacement photographer of an equivalent style and calibre. Alternatively I would return your full investment and allow you to make your own arrangements if you choose to.
In advance of the day I welcome the chance to input into your timeline to ensure you have the most beautiful light and adequate time for everything you want. I approach the wedding day with a full heart and open eyes. Capturing everything from the big moments to the quieter moments in-between in a relaxed way. I also love curated details as they tell a rich story of the day.
Typically I arrive 2 hours before your service to cover bridal preparations and if you added a second photographer they will arrive with your partner about an hour before they leave where they're getting ready. For International events we arrive a few days before your wedding to acclimatise and scout locations.
For weddings in Northern Ireland and Donegal travel is included and accommodation is not required. Outside of this area and for international destination weddings travel and accommodation is required. When we talk through your plans I can work out how many days are needed and can add this to your collection. I will handle all travel arrangements so you don't need to worry about that at all.
Typically, I curate 70-100 images per hour of coverage.
I use all the latest Sony equipment, with backups for everything in the rare event that anything should happen to one of our cameras or lenses on a wedding day.
Absolutely, send me across your wish-list of what you would love and I can create a bespoke collection which is tailored to your specific needs.
You can choose to add on coverage by a second photographer. I have a group who are very accomplished and shoot weddings under their own brands. On the day they capture the groom or other bride prep, lots of candid images of guests and any kids running around. They not only assist me and you on the day, but they also get a second perspective on the day. Depending on the scale of your event additional shooters can be added to ensure everything is captured.
I put a lot of planning into ensuring your timeline is perfect and I can connect with your wedding planner or co-ordinator to make sure the incredible moments of your day are captured in the best light possible.
When you're ready to book you can sign your contract online and pay the 25% booking fee to confirm your date. The final balance is due 30 days before your wedding day.
You can choose your album images online from your gallery or attend a viewing at the studio where you'll see your images for the first time on a big screen. You're in charge as you choose your album images and I'm there to help. You'll also choose your wedding album options such as the cover finish and you can add on any extras you'd like. If you opt for a viewing this typicall takes 4 to 5 hours.
Couples who choose at home tell me that narrowing down the images is one of the hardest things they’ve ever done. My advice is to sit down some night with a few cocktails, bottle of wine or whatever your favourite beverage is and make a fun night of it! It’s strongly advised to choose as soon as you can so I can get your album to you.
I'm passionate about print and want you to have an heirloom to cherish and to pass onto future generations. Being able to hold an album in your hands of the best day of your life is a beautiful experience.
The first 55 images are included in your wedding album, this is across 40 pages in our storybook albums. Additional images are £15 each. For every 2/3 images we add a couple of pages to your book. Typically couples go for 80 - 120 images in their final album and many couples order parent albums. They are smaller copies of their main album, which make great gifts for parents and your bridal party.
Images for an engagement or portrait session are ready in two weeks and for weddings your images will be ready in around five weeks. For weddings I offer a one week express edit as an add on.
I start with your immediate family, then add in any partners and kids. Six weeks before your wedding day I send you a questionnaire where you can share all the details of your day and any additional family photos you'd love. I can shoot the family portraits in twenty minutes (if everyone's there) and any additional group shots take a 3-5 minutes each. I would suggest keeping the portraits after the service to a minimum so you have time for your couples portraits and to relax before dinner. In between dinner and dancing we'll have time to get photos with anyone you missed earlier.
You'll have a chance to share ideas in the wedding questionnaire I'll send you six weeks before your wedding. I am detail orientated and do my best work capturing your unique day as it unfolds, so you can relax there's no need to supply a list.
Q: SHOULD I MAKE A SHOT LIST OF MY DESIRED PHOTOS?
I shoot a lot of images on the day, thousands, these are curated down to include the best images, removing any with blinks and unflattering expressions etc. All final images are individually edited and finished before I present them at your viewing and in your online gallery.
I have shot weddings in Ireland and around the world for the last decade and it has provided me with the skills to deal with four seasons in one day and how best to shoot in a variety of conditions. With that said, it's great to have a plan B in place. Many venues have great indoor locations that can be a great alternative, but many couples are up for making it work outside if conditions aren't too crazy.
Q: CAN YOU SUPPLY A PHOTO BOOTH?
Yes, our sister brand, Roxbury Booth is perfect for your wedding celebration. It is a luxury open style booth which not only looks great, but is super fun!
