Dorset Wedding Photographer Prices
Unobtrusive, high quality documentary photography
Prices start at just £650 £495 for a four hour wedding
All weddings are different so costs can vary. I.e., I have shot a two person, 1 hour wedding in a cave in Mijas, Spain where myself and the vicar were signatories. The four of us attended the wedding breakfast in a bar across the road!
Then, I have shot a 350+ person wedding at the Park Lane Hotel in London where I attended for about 13 hours. Taking into account the time spent and number of photos taken and edited, the price obviously varies significantly. Let's talk to discuss your day but please note that I have a special offer at the moment for weddings in 2023/24.
Whatever the length of your wedding and regardless of whether you include an engagement shoot or not, I will give the same level of attention and professionalism to every wedding I shoot. Please check out my wedding photography gallery to see my style. I switch between formal and reportage photography & natural light to flash depending on the environment.
Special Offer for 2023/24 Wedding Photography!
Things are tough for most of us right now. No-one escapes inflation along with rising living costs. Therefore, until things settle down, I am not only reducing my prices for weddings booked this year, I am also including some free goodies...
Example price for an all day wedding INCLUDING SPECIAL 2023/24 OFFER - £1695 £1395
Typically I would be at the wedding from the bride and groom getting ready through to the first dance. In all reality, I tend to stay a little longer to get some fun shots as the party kicks into gear. Let's use this as an example of what you would get.
* Weather permitting and subject to venue approval ** Two static cameras with audio and full edit
Special Offer 1: Free Aerial Dorset Wedding Photography
I've been a fully licensed and professional drone operator since 2015. Being able to capture images from up to 400 feet opened up a whole new world of photography for me. Weather and permission permitting, I will include some aerial photos of your big day whenever possible. These will really add some pizazz to your album. Note: Includes all necessary paperwork, insurances, risk assessments and safety checks. Please let your guests know there will be a drone flying on the day.
Special Offer 2: Free Filming of the Speeches
Over the years I have seen, heard and recorded so many speeches. Some have brought tears to my eyes and other have had me in fits of laughter. If you are not having your wedding filmed, it is a travesty not to record these epic moments. For weddings booked in 2023/24, I will professionally film the speeches using two cameras (as well as shooting stills) but only if you do not already have a videographer present. This video will then be edited professionally for you to keep forever!
With a huge range of books available, I recommend that you wait until you see the images before deciding. That way you can match the style, colours and design of the book to the photos from the day.
Photography is my job but I also shoot professional video. If you need just video and no stills, I can do that. If you need stills and video, please see below but I also work with another Dorset videographer.
Let's choose one of your favourite spots and spend a couple of hours playing. This allows us to get to know each other and gives you some beautiful photos to use for invitations etc.
Dorset Wedding Photography and Video (£1995)
Depending on the venue, I am able to photograph AND film certain parts of your wedding day. For example, the video below is from a wedding where the couple received around 900 photos as well as full video of the ceremony and speeches as well as shorter clips from throughout the day (including drone video). This made for a lovely mix of still images and precious video clips merged together to really show off the day.
Obviously this takes a lot more preparation, edit and imaging time but you end up with a full record of your wedding day. Please note that this service is only available if you DO NOT already have a videographer present.
Alan and Donna
In the first instance, please fill out the form below or email/call me to discuss your wedding in more detail. Then I recommend that we meet either at your home, mine or the venue itself to go through the finer details. I am a stickler for organised preparation. Prefer video?
