Why hire a professional?

EXPERTISE

Would you hire “a friend of the family whose a budding builder” to build you a house. I hope not. It’s the same with photography. A friend with a good camera and a keen interest in photography, is very different to managing the emotional, environmental and technical factors of a real wedding day. It takes years of training and wedding experience, this is reflected in my wedding photography pricing.

professional EQUIPMENT

I love my Sony cameras and lenses. My accountant is not so keen. Professional equipment is eye wateringly expensive, it’s a regular investment and requires on-going maintenance to cope with the demands of a wedding day. I carry back up cameras and lenses, You can’t put a price on peace of mind. (FYI, you can, it’s around £20k)

HERDING CATS

This is EVERY wedding. The skills involved in managing very happy tipsy people who just want to party, within a time frame shorter than a fuse, whilst maintaining an air of calm to create stunning, authentic photographs with couples’ who regularly share “I hate having my picture taken” is literally indescribable.

“Absolutely AMAZING from start to finish. Captured our day PERFECTLY, made us feel at ease and caught every emotion. Our photos from start to finish tell our special day perfectly.”

Consider me YOUR wedding ESSENTIAL…

I’VE WALKED IN YOUR SHOES, NOT LITERALLY, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

I’m 16 years married, but that’s not so unique, BUT I have also been part of +600 weddings, now that’s pretty epic.

I understand that feeling of not knowing were to start, what style do I like, how much should it cost, what’s included, how many hours, one or two photographers. So many questions. I’m here to make this process as simple and straightforward as possible, and I am always available to answer any questions you have.

WHEN TO BOOK

Typically I am booked 18 months in advance, usually booked just after the venue is confirmed.

SO MANY STYLES, WHAT DO THEY MEAN?

In a nutshell, and just my opinion;

Candid, Documentary, Story-telling, Unposed – For couples who want pictures with genuine connections, emotions and authentic. Who DON’T want to spend hours having a photo shoot, awkward poses and missing the fun of their wedding day.

Editorial – Whatever is currently trending on Instagram and TikTok

Fashion – See Vogue Wedding Magazine

Traditional – Ask you parents to show you their wedding album 🙂

DO I NEED MORE THAN ONE PHOTOGRAPHER?

My wedding photography pricing includes me as your main photographer. Two photographers is beneficial if you would like both partners’ preparations documented, or you are planning a large wedding, especially if split over multiple locations e.g. home prep, church ceremony, venue reception.

SO, HOW MUCH & WHAT’S INCLUDED ..

If you’ve been looking at WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY pricing, you’ll know how confusing it can be, let me assure you, it doesn’t have to be.

My wedding photography pricing is transparent, you pay for the hours you need and the products you want.

I include professional prints in all my services, I like couples’ to have something tangible, and who doesn’t want to have their wedding photos displayed proudly around their home? After all this time I still get excited when unwrapping prints and seeing the images in my hands instead of on a screen.

I offer a full range of printed and framed products, albums and thank you cards, should you wish to purchase anything post wedding.

We are so in LOVE with all of our pictures from our big day! You made us feel super RELAXED and really captured the EMOTIONS of our day perfectly.

As we were planning our big day in Ibiza, we were looking for someone we could trust to capture the emotion and relaxed vibe of our big day and also blend in with our guests and someone we could have fun with.

Denise was amazing, she made us feel unbelievably special like ours’ was the only wedding of the year. I can and truly can say Denise made our day last forever with her photography. Thank you so much our memories will last a lifetime!”

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?


Don’t worry, you’re not alone! I’ve had maybe two couples in 16 years who have not felt this way. Your couples photos are very natural, no cliche poses. I’m quite chatty too and whilst offering gentle guidance and direction, I’ll make sure you’re relaxed and having fun too!

If you read the kind words throughout my website, they all comment on how relaxed & comfortable they felt, it’s my super power.

Yes I am. I’ve been full time since 2007 and never looked back. I have always been intrigued by people, relationships & connections.

During lock down when the world stopped, I embarked on Counselling qualification. In addition to photography I volunteer 3 hours a week with as a counsellor for teens & young adults.

Yes. I am based on the borders of Surrey, Berkshire and Hampshire, with easy access to the M25, M4 & M3, with London Heathrow & Gatwick airport within 45 minutes.

Yes, absolutely. I have Professional and Public Liability Insurance. Your in safe hands.

Yes, absolutely. I believe that all love is equal and have been part of many same sex and transgender wedding celebrations.

As your photographer, I will own the copyright. However, included within my wedding photography pricing is full download and print licensing, which you can access directly from your personalised on line gallery.

I don’t have a hard or fast rule on the number of images I deliver. I believe in quality over quantity. As a guide you should expect to receive a minimum of 400 story telling images from your day, but can be as many as 1000.

I would love to photograph everyones dream wedding day, but some personalities work together better than others.

I work best with couples’ who are relaxed, who want their images to reflect the true story of their day including the ones with happy snotty tears, are happy to venture into wet grass because they know the resulting picture will be worth it, couples who can laugh at lifes’ mishaps (I cannot tell you how many times I have been stung or had a bird pooh on me whilst photographing a wedding!) but above all, TRUST ME and the process.

If you have a list of “200 must have wedding photographs” I am not be the photographer for you. When photographers get caught up in this level of detail, you miss the natural flow and emotion of the day.

Absolutely! Your wedding day is an event to share with all your loved ones.

I send a guide list of groups on a wedding questionnaire which you’ll receive 6 weeks before your big day. There are 12 group variations incorporating both families, bridal party and a big group photo, these usually take 15 minutes. Allowing you lots of time to enjoy your day.
