This package uses professional book bound wedding albums, which enables the pages to lay totally flat; the album is made up of double page spreads printed on to photographic materials. The pages of the albums are the actual prints.
This package includes a DVD optical disk with the all the edited HQ JPEG image's. If you would prefer a USB storage device (easily misplaced or lost) rather than the DVD, this can be arranged, but may incur a small additional charge.
The albums are produced digitally, printed on photographic paper with the finsih being Gloss, Lustre, or Silk (metallic paper available at extra cost). The images are assembled to create the album where the images become the pages of the book. These albums come in various sizes with the most popular being: 'A4', 'A3' or 30x20cm, 40x30cm. All rectangular albums are available as 'Portrait or Landscape' orientation. Remember the spine of the book will over time cause a crease in the prints and may eventually crack!
Before the album pages are constructed low res copyrighted images are sent via e-mall 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 in the album, is of course, the number of pages. The most popular sizes are listed below, but albums with more pages are available at extra cost.
The page layouts are created by the photographer, small low res copyrighted images for the album page sequence will be sent via e-mail for your approval, before the full size images are sent to the photographic printers. If you wish to change a small number of images in the layouts, this will be carried out to your instructions. However, if you wish to alter more than 4 pages this will incur an additional charge at £30 per page.

At a typical summer wedding (all day coverage) with good weather I can take around 600 to 700 images, making sure I capture the whole story and emotions of the day. I will remove images where people are looking the wrong way, have eyes closed, pulling faces (it happens!) etc. The remaining images will be edited with "Adobe Photoshop", which results in a choice of images (from 150 to 240 edited images).
When booking my services a pre-wedding meeting takes place 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 and DVD.
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!
