“Andy! Thanks for all the photos, they are incredible! I honestly wanted all 500 to go in the album, hehe”.
“Thanks so much!! We’ve just watched the slideshow, it’s brilliant!! (With fish n chips and champagne- we know how to do it in style!!) Can’t wait for the gallery link so we can share with the family!”
I passionately believe in my style of wedding photography – Edgy, Fun, Creative and Genuine! I avoid cheese and clichés!
You can see some full weddings here: HERE You will see I happily do family group photos, crazy dancing shots and lots of candid unposed moments!
For me, it’s about real moments, no traditional wedding photography cheese. The groom looking nervous as he’s getting ready, the bride getting emotional with her Mum and Dad when they see her in the wedding dress for the first time, your mates and family larking around!
The vast majority of my work is a documentary, candid, style. I also enjoy spending a few minutes making creative and fun portraits as well. I set these up in such a way that they look natural and cool. Never forced or cheesy. You guys will be wearing the best dress and suit of your lives so far in all likelihood, so it would be rude not to get some cool images of you both rockin’ it on your day!
I also think family group shots are important as well. I don’t subscribe to hardcore documentary photography principles and skip these (unless you tell me you want to!) I get them done as efficiently as I can so they don’t take very long. They may never win any photography awards, but they will become more valuable with time, I promise you
The Moolah, the damage
I keep things simple and offer two main package options: A full day or an hourly rate alternative.
The Full Day Package – £2000 (Up to 10 hours of coverage from Andrew)
This option will suit you if you are planning the ‘Full Monty’ of weddings, and want everything documented, from morning prep through to late night dance floor action! The price includes for up to 10 hours of coverage from me, which is usually plenty of time to document everything from morning prep, right through to the first dance and the after party!
The Hourly Rate Alternative – £250 ph.
If you are planning something more low key, and don’t want the full day package, then the hourly rate option could be for you. It’s really popular with people who only want 2-5 hours of coverage. There are no hidden charges but the hours do need to be continuous.
What do I get?
Regardless of which package you go for, you will ALWAYS receive:
- A cool MEMORY STICK pre-loaded with your Hi-Resolution, print-ready files and a Slideshow to play on your TV. (You can expect circa 400 images for a full days coverage with no 2nd photographer)
- A link to your online SLIDESHOW and GALLERY will be emailed to you so you can forward it on to your family and freinds for easy viewing, sharing and ordering of professional quality prints & wall products.

Have a Second Photographer
You can have a SECOND photographer if you like, which I highly recommend, read below! This is £400 with the full day package or £50 per hour with the hourly rate alternative (min charge of £200)
Why have a second photographer?
If budget allows I totally recommend paying for a second photographer. I only use photographers that I know well and shoot in a similar way to me. A second photographer can be invaluable for morning prep with the groom, extra angles during the ceremony (normally from the back) and lots of extra candid moments when I might normally be busy working my way through family group shots or when we are off doing some awesome couple portraits away from your guests. I cannot recommend having one enough…
My GIF ROBOT is a totally unique type of photo booth – it’s an automated, animated GIF generating, Photo Booth! If you are bored of normal Photo Booths, this is for you. Check out the video below…
GIF ROBOT lets your guests generate fast-paced, fun and incredibly addictive animated GIFs that are sent to their phone instantly. Guests can then choose to share on Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat if they wish. Use your wedding #hashtag too! You will be given all the digital files from GIF ROBOT to keep forever along with your main wedding images.
GIF ROBOT is only £350 for up to 2 hours with any wedding package. It’s normally best to kickoff GIF ROBOT after the first dance. Remember, it’s totally automated so I am still free to capture all the fun as it happens, wherever it happens.
My albums start at £250 for a lovely photo book and go up to £600 for Fine Art “Museum Grade” wedding albums with leather covers and thick matt art paper pages. Both options have 80 images included for the fixed price, which is usually plenty to tell the story of your day.
Additional ‘Mini Albums’ replicas for parents and grandparents (for example) are also available, and I can give you more detail on these if you are interested.
Have an engagement shoot with the edited Hi-Resolution photos included for £300.
This is a GREAT way for us to get to know each other before the big day, helping you to relax in front of the camera.

A cool book for your guests to leave their messages in. A popular option is to use the images from your engagement shoot. We design the album for you with lots of blank space around the images for your guests to write messages in. Signing albums are A4 size (landscape) and cost £175.
An alternative to a signing album is a signing frame. They are 20×24 inches in size, and come supplied with your favourite image from the engagement shoot. They have a large mount surrounding the image, leaving plenty of room for your guests to write messages. Signing frames are £175.
