Wedding Photography in Kent UK
Congratulations on your upcoming Wedding Day!
This will be one of the most important days of your life and I'm here to help you get it right. I have covered many weddings and each and every one has been different. I can advise you on many aspects of the day and help you find suppliers to make your wedding unique and ensure your day runs as smoothly as possible.
The photos of your day will be a beautiful and lasting memory of your special day. They will be with you long after the cake has been eaten and the champagne drunk so you want to get the best photographer you can. Wedding photographers range from a friend with a big camera who will do it for free to society wedding photographers who can and do demand huge sums of money.
I like to keep my packages simple and affordable. I offer a 1 hour shoot suitable for a civil or church ceremony only for just £150 to a full days shoot at £595. All packages will include all the digital images in a small size suitable for viewing online sent direct to you once they are edited.
Work Out Your Package
This can be from anytime and can include the bride getting ready at home or in your hotel room
1 hour £ 150
2 hours £250
3 hours £300
4 hours £350
5 hours £400
6 hours £450
A one hour package is just enough time to take photos of the actual ceremony. This includes photos of the couple arriving, photos during the ceremony and a few immediately after the ceremony.
A two hour package gives us time for the above and for a much longer time for getting photos of all your family and friends and some time for romantic photos of just the happy couple before leaving for your reception.
The three and four hour packages allow time for me to meet you back at your reception venue and to take photos of you arriving and being greeted by your guests and a mock cutting of the cake.
Consider if you actually need me any longer than this? No photos are taken during the meal as explained below. Photos of the speeches will be taken if required but this means I will have had to wait for the meal to be eaten which can take up to two hours. I cannot of course capture the speeches in a photo so maybe you would prefer to have one of your guests record this for you? The first dance photos are usually shot at around 8pm once the meal and speeches are finished and the DJ has finished setting up. This can be a long time from when you first sit down for your meal. All your guests will be there with their cameras and phones taking these photos, so maybe you do not need me there for these photos either? I am of course very happy to take these photos but this will of course vastly increase the costs as I will have had to be there much longer to get these shots.
All day £695
All Day Wedding Packages start with the bride getting ready. I will then go to the Wedding Venue to take some photos of the Groom and his Groomsmen. I have 3 spare seats in my car so if you need anyone ferried to the venue I'm happy to do so. I believe that as this is your special day then the actual wedding ceremony should be between you and your partner and your guests not interrupted by a photographer buzzing around and getting in everyone's way. I will capture the exchanging of rings and the big kiss so you may notice me then but mostly I'll be in the background taking photos discreetly.
Once the ceremony is over and you have formally signed the register I'll take some formal photos of the happy couple and your witnesses and some of the key guests.
I like to take the group photo if required as soon as possible, this then frees up a lot of the guests so they can then relax and make their way to the reception venue. I shall then take the formal family photos and work my way down to photos of the Bride and Groom spending some special quiet moments together before setting off for the reception.
I do not take any photos during the meal. Nobody looks good whilst eating! I shall take a break at this time and return for the speeches and toasts. I will stay until the cake is cut and then capture the first dances.
Your photos will be edited and uploaded to my Client Area where you can choose if you would like to buy or order prints or other products.
Prints and other products are extra and are at my usual prices .
Complete Package £995.00 = Shoot + Album + Full Size Files
I now offer a complete package that includes enough time to get all the photos you will need for your wedding album plus full size digital files of your day from arriving at the wedding venue to the mock cutting of the cake at your reception venue.
The album will be a 12 x 8 inch leatherette embossed album of your choice of colour with between 40 - 60 beautiful fully edited photos. All the photos taken will be fully edited and supplied direct via We Transfer for you to download to your PC or can be put onto a USB stick.
With the shoots is included a free consultation either at my studio or a place of your choice. Usually near the wedding venue is best as then we can take a look and plan how we will take the shots.
With your booking I also include a FREE engagement shoot. The engagements shoots are a way for you to get to know me and for you to have a taste of being photographed before the big day so that you both feel comfortable on the day. The engagement shoot can take place at a location of your choice. Your images will be uploaded to my Client Area where you can buy more prints either from there or you can buy direct from me at my usual prices.
A deposit is required with the balance payable up to 2 weeks before the wedding date. Payment plans are available. A copy of my Wedding Photography Agreement can be seen here.
Wedding albums available at affordable prices. Albums are available for any shoots. I use D S Colour Labs for my albums. To make things simple you can choose the album you would like at cost price I will then charge £6.00 per image insertion.
I am an affiliate to Event Insurance where you can insure all aspects of your wedding including photography. You do not have to use my services to insure your wedding. You can view a proposal form here.

'Dawn O'Connor was the photographer at my Daughter's wedding last summer. I can thoroughly recommend Dawn's professionalism, her eye for detail and the quality of her pictures. A number of my guests remarked on how unobtrusive Dawn was during the event.
