Elopement and Small Wedding Photography Package
You have already made the decision to step away from a large full-day wedding, with all the things that go along with that, so I try to keep my elopement package as simple as possible to. I offer a simple package that hopefully includes everything you need to make a record of your day.
The location of your wedding effects the price a little – a wedding in Glasgow involves a lot less travel time than one in Torridon, and sometimes I have to stay overnight too. This makes it impossible to give just one fixed price but all I ask is that you send me a few more details about your wedding, such as location, number of guests and the proposed date and I can send you a tailored price for your own day. Having said that, the cost is usually somewhere between £650 and £800.
My Elopement and Small Wedding Package Includes
- Photography consultation by telephone or video conferencing
- All travel expenses (except ferry costs where applicable)
- Coverage usually starts around 1.5 hours before the ceremony
- Coverage normally ends around 4 hours after I arrive
- There is no limit to the number of photographs I make on the day
- All your photographs are fully edited and ready for printing
- All of your edited photographs are supplied on a USB stick
- I will supply you with a covering letter granting you permission to print images
- Your photographs will be presented in an online secure gallery and reprint ordering system
- As much help along the way as you need, even on the day itself. Feel free to tap into my 20 years of wedding experience.
Before deciding book me as your photographer it can be really useful to have a quick chat either by telephone or video conferencing (Zoom / Facebook Messenger etc.) and I will be very happy to arrange that with you. I also like to have another meeting (by phone or video again) a few days before the wedding itself so that we can run through your plans in greater detail and I can answer any questions you might have before the wedding day. I am always happy to help with your plans though so please always feel free to let me know if there is anything at all I can help with.
I always like to run through the timings of your day with you at some point prior to the wedding but, generally speaking, I tend to start about an hour before the ceremony to capture some of the preparations. I then photograph the ceremony and that leaves a couple of hours more to take photographs of you both and any fiends and family that might be there. After several years of photographing smaller weddings I have found the four hours seems to be about the right length of time. If you do run over by half an hour or so then it really isn’t a problem for me at all. If you think you will need me for more than four hours I will be happy to give you an updated price.
Editing and Post Production
All of your photographs will be edited to remove any unnecessary duplication and to ensure that the remaining pictures are looking great. I don’t do fancy effects or add cheesy filters – it is all about making your pictures look as good as possible. I love black and white photography and you can normally expect about 30-40% of your photographs to be monochrome. Of course, if you want more, or fewer, black and white shots then please just ask.
USB Flash Drive
All of your edited, print-ready, photographs will be saved to a USB ash drive and posted to you, usually about three weeks after the wedding. The photographs will all be full size at 300dpi and will not have any logos or watermarks. Basically, you can print whatever you want, however many times you want, as long as it is for you and your friends and family. If you would prefer me to make your photographs available to download I can do that instead of posting a USB – my overseas clients tend to prefer this method.
Secure Online Gallery and Reprint Ordering
Immediately after I have finished preparing your photographs for you they are uploaded to the internet in a password protected gallery where you and your friends and family can view them. Visitors can also order reprints, digital copies and Parent’s albums if they wish. I will email the link and password details as soon as the pictures are ready for viewing.
