2018-2019 Wedding Information & Pricing kerry bartlett photography

Hello there!

Thank you for stopping by. You don't need me to tell you that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and I am incredibly honoured to capture this moment in your lives, more than that; create works of art and record all the fine details and special people you will be bringing together for this monumentous event.

Below will guide you through my photographic style, the way I work and other things to consider, as well as pricing and booking details.

What you can expect on the day

I follow the schedule of the day over twelve hours, covering the traditions and events as they occur, in an unobtrusive way. While my style is relaxed, I use gentle direction to create natural looking photographs. I like to spend some time with you both, away from your guests on the day for your 'portrait session'. This need only be twenty minutes or so, however, I recommend we are completely alone so that you can both relax into the shoot. We will take a quiet stroll during the falling evening light, usually around sunset. This is where we create a wonderful collection of portraits without any fixed, staid posing. I am also happy to cover group photographs during the day. I recommend that these are limited to eight photographs, due to the time that these photogrpahs take and to ensure I am giving you my fine-art, natural style of photography throughout the day. We will discuss the best time to do these.

Some helpful tips

Feel free (indeed, I encourage you) to discuss any and all of your plans for the day with me if you are unsure about anything you think may affect or concern the photography. As an expert in my field, I don't just want to turn up on the day and take some standard photographs, I want to plan my day, emmerse myself into your atmosphere and styling and create some art, collections and compositions which will truly remind you of every moment and detail of the day.

Preparation photographs set the scene for the day and it is worth considering a few things when choosing somehwere to stay. There is a great difference between the style, colour and quality of light in, say, a hotel like a Premiere Inn and that of a boutique B&B. The lighter and brighter, the better. Large windows and white walls are best. Consider whether the prep location suits your wedding styling (after all, the photographs will all be together in your final collection so it would be desirable that they are cohesive. Consider how much space you will have in your prep' location when you add hair & make-up artists, bridesmaids, family members etc. It is worth having extra space where possible; with more space, I can work with an uncluttered background and space for the detail shots and you will have a calmer space in which to prepare for such an important event.

On the day, I like to have a few things to hand. A copy of your wedding stationery (invitations, envelopes neatly addressed and with a pretty stamp/stamps, menus, place names etc.); a selection of flower stems from your florist (just one or two of each type, loose. Usually, florists are quite happy to supply these at no extra cost); your shoes, dress, maids' dresses, veil, jewellery, perfume and any other details you would like me to capture, all to hand somewhere away from the busy preparation area.

Pre-wedding meets

We will meet a few weeks/months before the wedding to go over the details. It is at this meeting that we will finalise the timings and plans for the day. Before meeting, I will have researched your venue(s). I tend to focus on colours, textures, how the light enters the building etc. and I'll consider where the sun/shade will be and back-up plans for inclement weather. During our discussion, I'll be taking notes on all aspects of your day and in particular, the atmosphere, styling and feel that you are aiming for on the day. From this, I can engage in your ideals for the day and therefore be shooting your photography from your point of view.

All your images on USB

As a general rule of thumb, one hour of wedding photography will generate 50 images. This is not an exact science as this does depend on styling, variety and the events of the day. These photographs are individually processed for tonal balance and contrast. These are presented to you on USB with a full set in colour and a second set in black and white. You will also receive a set of 'web ready' files which are optimised for online use without loosing quality through compression.

A 'Photographers's Choice' set of prints

A boxed set of my personal favourite prints from your wedding collection. Twenty prints, each one on archival photogrpahic paper for precise colour and tone. Along with your prints, your USB is also presented in the box.

A private online gallery

Using your online gallery, you can view and share your wedding photos. There is also an option to buy prints, all priced at nominal 'print shop' prices.

Pricing

Wedding photography pricing is very simple. The whole day of photography (10 hours coverage, usually 11am to 9pm), with the entire collection of individually edited photographs on USB and twenty photographic prints is £1900.

  • Engagement shoot from £250
  • Leather-bound (British made) wedding albums from £450
