YOUR DAY ...
We capture everything; from the big moments and couples portraits, to the small details. Your wedding day is built from all those carefully planned elements.
We know how important your wedding is, so we will approach every moment with the same care and attention you have. We maintain respect for your celebrations, balancing discretion and engagement in order to deliver the very best experience and memories.
We build our coverage around your individual plans; starting with your morning preparations, proceeding through your ceremony, wedding breakfast and celebrations.
We also know how easy it is to get swept away in the beautiful busyness of a wedding. That’s why we like to offer you the opportunity to bask in each others company in a secluded spot, to catch up and soak up the realisation that you are finally married. We’ll whisk you away for a short period and guide you with some gentle direction as we take a selection of our signature stunning and candid portraits, capturing your natural chemistry.
Our goal is to provide you with the very best photographs of your momentous day, so you can hold these memories close for many years to come.
... YOUR WAY
We couldn’t have asked for nicer people to have worked with on our big day. Colin and Rae went above and beyond to get great shots for us and didn’t leave until they were happy they did (working well over 12 hours). We couldn’t be happier with Peakography and would recommend them to anyone.
LOUISE AND RICHARD
UNLIMITED COVERAGE Your wedding day will be covered from start to finish by Colin, using professional cameras and lenses; from the bridal preparations, to your guests joining you on the dance floor after your first dance, and beyond! Colin won't leave until he knows he's captured your day in full.
PRE-WEDDING CONSULTATION Colin will meet with you either in person or online to discuss your day and requirements, which also allows you all to get to know each other.
PRESENTATION BOX OF IMAGES Within 4 weeks of your wedding day you will receive a beautiful presentation box complete with:
- Presentation USB with 500+ individually and professionally edited, high-resolution water mark free digital images, plus copies suitable for social media or email. These are yours to print and distribute for personal use.
- A slideshow of your images provided on both USB and online for easy viewing no matter where you are.
- A private online gallery, for your guests to view all your photographs, and order prints/photo gifts directly should they wish to. You can also design and create your own albums easily.
SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER When you've got two people on the job there is obviously more scope for more coverage, such as:
- Bride AND groom preparations - because sometimes the boys like coverage too!
- Multiple angles of the ceremony, speeches and reception.
- Additional organisation during group photographs, speeding up the process.
- Ability to undertake more complex or adventurous couple portraits.
PRE-WEDDING SESSION Often referred to as an engagement shoot, this opportunity to head out and get a feel for what it's like being in front of the camera is invaluable to many couples.
- 1-2 hour photoshoot.
- 50+ individually and professionally edited, high-resolution digital images, plus copies suitable for social media or email that you are free to print and distribute for personal use.
- Password protected online gallery of your images for easy sharing with family and friends.
ALBUMS More and more couples are looking for a physical album containing all their treasured photos. Don't worry, those cheesy borders and tissue paper pages are a thing of the past, and we instead produce high-quality professionally bound and covered lay-flat albums that you will enjoy for years to come.
Prices start from £350
Hi! I'm Colin, and together with my wife Rae, I established Peakography in 2015. Our combined history in design and digital arts spans decades.
I have my dad to thank for many of my passions. He put my first SLR camera in my hands when I was a toddler, my Pentax ME Super. This very camera got me my first Press Pass in 2005 for Rock in the Castle, it’s safe to say that I was the only photographer changing a film in the press pit during Terrorvision's set!
Being based in Sheffield puts me in a perfect position to cover weddings all over the country, which ticks of another of my favourite things; travel and exploration. I’m what you might call “active”, and regularly take full advantage of what the beautiful Peak District has to offer be that climbing, trail running or hiking.
What you get from Peakography is a truly personal experience. We invest in each and every wedding and often keep in touch with couples way beyond their big day.
HOW DO WE BOOK? To secure your wedding date we require a 25% deposit. Full balance is due 28 days prior to your wedding date.
WHO WILL ATTEND? Colin attends every wedding, but you can choose to book a second photographer through Peakography.
SHOULD WE BOOK A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER? A second photographer allows us to cover both bride and groom preparations, more angles during your ceremony and celebrations, and more scope for creative or adventurous portrait photographs.
DO WE MEET YOU BEFORE THE WEDDING? We want our coverage of your day to be as personal as possible and no- one knows your plans for your wedding better than you, so we encourage couples to meet us before booking. It helps us get to know each other and for you to feel comfortable with us.
HOW MUCH OF THE DAY DO YOU COVER? We make individual arrangements to suit you and your day. We begin when you start to get ready and provide continued coverage throughout your day, right up to your first dance and beyond. We will require a break to eat but we try to fit this during your mealtime so as to minimise the time we’re unavailable.
WILL YOU WORK WITH OUR VIDEOGRAPHER? We are happy to work with videographers, just let us have their details prior to the wedding so we are prepared and can make contact if necessary.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU NEED? We ask for a hot meal during the day, it needn’t be fancy (a bar meal will do!) and we aim to have this whilst you’re eating so as not to impact our coverage of your day.
WHAT AREAS DO YOU COVER? Travel within England and Wales is included. For Scotland/NI/European/Worldwide weddings, travel expenses and accommodation will apply.
WHAT WILL YOU WEAR? We will always dress smartly and neutrally to be as unobtrusive as possible.
ARE YOU INSURED? We have full liability insurance and all our equipment is insured.
CAN WE CANCEL OR CHANGE THE DATE? We would refund your full deposit if cancellation is in the 14 days after the receipt of your deposit. If you were to cancellation between day 14 and 90 days before your wedding date we will retain your deposit. Cancellation in the 90 days prior to your wedding date will require full payment. If you wish to change your date we will try to accommodate you, but this depends on our availability and if we are unavailable it will be treated as a cancellation.
WOULD YOU EVER CANCEL? We would only cancel in an instance of non-payment. Our policy is to uphold our contract with you in all but the most extreme of circumstances. If there was a reason we were unable to attend we would do all we could to arrange for a suitable replacement photographer.
