This package is aimed at couples who want a professional photographer and require a budget album (photo-book).
Images from your wedding day are presented in either an 'A4' or 'A3' photo book album. A ‘Photo Book’ album allows a multitude of simple layouts. it is printed on to high gloss or semi-gloss paper, you make that choice. Please note these album use high quality 'Litho' printing process using inks, they are not photographic prints. ‘Photo Book’ albums allow a single image on a page or multiple images on a page as illustrated above.
I make sure that I take enough photographs to tell the story of your day. The package covers pre-wedding getting ready stage (if requested), arrival at the wedding service, wedding service (if allowed) formal and casual pictures of the wedding party, reportage photos of the guests and of course the detail shots of your wedding day (table settings, flowers, bouquets etc.).
Additional group photos organised by guests or the wedding party and brought to the attention of the photographer, can be taken as long as time and weather permit. This package includes coverage of the 'Wedding Breakfast' and speeches, and is ended by a posed cutting of the cake.
This package does not include extended coverage of evening celebrations and first dance, but is available at an additional cost of £100
From the many images I take, I will remove the photos where people are looking the wrong way, have eyes closed, pulling faces etc. The remaining images will be edited and tweaked using "Adobe Photoshop", which results in around 150 to 200 edited images.
Before the album pages are constructed low res copyrighted images are sent via e-mail to the Bride & Groom so they can decide which images they do NOT want to be considered for inclusion in the album. The remaining images are then used to create the pages of the album. The only thing which limits the number of images used, is of course, the number of pages in the album.
I use dedicated software to send the page layouts to the printers in the UK or America. Once the print order has been placed you should get the album in 1 to 2 weeks. If you require some input in to how the finished pages of the album will look you should consider package 2, 3 & 4.
The presentation within the photo book is simple and clean. A typical 20 page album making use of single images and multiple images will hold approximately 40 to 90 images which will tell the story of your wedding day. If you wish to have more pages to allow greater numbers of photos or a greater number of larger images these can be added at extra cost. Images can be printed in colour, black and white or tinted.
This package includes a DVD optical disk with the all the edited HQ JPEG images (an SD card can be supplied at an additional cost of £10.)
Prices start from:
'A4' photo book £650. (Lay flat pages additional £30)
'A3' photo book £700. (Lay flat pages additional £30)
When booking my services a pre-wedding meeting can be arranged in the comfort of your own home to discuss the photographic coverage you require and also give you the opportunity to look at actual printed examples of my work. To commission me for the date of your wedding a booking fee of £100 is required, which is part of the total cost of the package.
A further deposit will be required and is due for payment eight weeks before the wedding day. This additional payment will bring the total paid to 50% of the value of the package you have chosen. The remaining 50% of the fee is to be paid on delivery of the album.
If for any reason you cancel my services not later than 4 weeks before the wedding, the balance of the 50% will be returned, but I will retain the booking fee of £100. If you cancel within 4 weeks of the wedding date the 50% deposit is non-refundable!
