CECELIA & BERNARDO
Your wedding day is such a special moment and being invited to capture it isn't something I take lightly. It's so important to choose the right wedding photographer for you. Therefore, I like to briefly explain my approach. My love of photography and passion for weddings stem from my desire to capture moments that are beautifully elegant, whilst authentically reflecting the true moment.
I'm inspired by a love of light and my passion for travel. Both at weddings and in everyday life, I'm always seeking beautiful scenes and fleeting moments to capture. I am constantly inspired by my couples, and approach each wedding as the unique celebration it is.
I believe that authentic, elegantly captured moments are the essence of wedding photography and my approach reflects this. Capturing your wedding day is about creating images for you to cherish that are elegant whilst also authentically reflecting your relationship. Over time, I have refined an approach that allows me to capture your relationship in all its beauty, and provide you with a gallery of timeless images that tells your love story; heirlooms for you to treasure for generations to come.
Part of my role as your wedding photographer is to act as your "creative director". For aspects of your day such as your couples portraits and bridal preparation, I work with you to create images beautiful images that capture your natural reactions. Through many hours spent with a camera in hand, I have developed an eye for the best locations to capture images. My approach revolves around positioning you elegantly in flattering light, and then leaving the moment to unfold naturally. I have found that this approach creates moments that are graceful and truly reflect your personalities, allowing me to create a beautiful gallery for you that celebrates your relationship.
Of course, there are certain parts of the day that I capture from the sidelines as they unfold naturally, and I always favour the perfect moment over the perfect pose, ensuring I don't intrude on these important moments. My role as your photographer is to ensure I am capturing elegant, timeless imagery that you will love, allowing your focus to remain on celebrating your wedding day with each other and your friends and family.
I firmly believe that every love story deserves to be captured and cherished, and work with couples of all gender and sexual identities, ethnicities and religions.
"Taking pictures is savouring life intensely, every hundredth of a second"
Investment - £8500
This includes up to 12 hours coverage for your wedding day with two photographers. From my discussion with Denise, this will enable us to tell the full story of your wedding day, capturing moments from preparations, through to you partying the night away on the dance floor.
For all but the smallest weddings, I recommend including two photographers, as it allows us to capture so much more of your wedding day. In particular, it allows me to focus on preparations with one of you in the morning whilst my second photographer focuses on the other one of you. Throughout the day, we work together to capture complementary images that tell the story of your wedding day.
Your final wedding gallery will include every image I think you will love. After your wedding, I review and curate each image in my signature style. You final gallery will contain a minimum of 650 images. I know how exciting it is to receive your images, so I will send you a handful of images within 48 hours of your wedding. Your full gallery will then be ready within eight weeks.
This proposal includes all travel fees, and takes into account that your wedding gallery will be under NDA, so nothing of your wedding day will be shared.
Please note, due to rapidly changing in travel costs, this proposal will be valid until 14 October 2023. After that date, I will re-calculate travel costs, which may result in fluctuations in the proposal.
I deliver all images through a private online gallery - you're able to view the images within the gallery, download the images and also share the gallery directly with your friends and family. I'm a strong believer in printing images. Therefore, I will also send you a handful of fine art prints once your gallery is complete.
If you would like to increase the amount of coverage, such as to capture more of the evening on the dance floor, fireworks after sunset or a sparkler send-off.
£300 per hour
Booking my team allows us to capture so much more of your wedding story. That being said, I'm experienced capturing weddings on my own whilst still creating complete, meaningful galleries. Removing the second would reduce the price by £2000.
A pre-wedding session is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate your engagement, and forms a beautiful addition to your wedding gallery. We could arrange this ahead of the wedding, or the evening before to capture the anticipation.
Albums & Prints
I work with a specialist professional printers to offer fine art albums and beautiful prints. I only work with companies who I consider to create true heirlooms that stand the test of time and form treasured possessions.
Albums from £350
