AWPhotographic Pricing & Costs

Weddings can and do vary hugely in their styles, sizes and feel and I always approach each one differently and tailor your wedding photography with you in mind. Having said that though I feel there are some important things that you can expect from me on your day. So here we go..
• Some photographs need a little nudge to make them happen and I will offer some encouragement to make the magic to happen. This could be getting the guests super excited for the confetti photo or organising guests ready for the first dance..
• It's always great to get pictures of you as a couple and so I will try take you away from the craziness of the wedding for a few short periods, usually that will be no more than 20 minutes at a time. I'm hugely conscious that its a wedding day and not a photo shoot and it's important to be with your friends and family and while we want to get those pictures of you as a couple, it’s never necessary to take you away from your guests for an hour or more (some photographers actually do this).
Couples invest in my photography because they want to enjoy their day and trust me to get the images that matter and so for this reason I always include:
• A consultation to discuss your individual needs and dreams for your day.
• A Pre Wedding or as some like to call it an Engagement shoot. This is a great time to get to know you better, help you become more comfortable in front of the camera and get some awesome photos to boot..
• Photography of the wedding from preparations, usually 2 hours prior to the wedding, through to the first dance..
• A private online gallery with all your final edited images for you to view, download and share your photos with full printing rights included.

AWPhotographic Full Description
I want to be there for you, get to know you both over a cuppa tea and a biccy and create something special for you..
I believe the best way to do this is be with you all day at the wedding, from getting ready right until you drop those funky moves on the dance floor.
I offer packages that include wedding albums and ones that don't. Albums, however, can be purchased at anytime..
Don't waste any more time, let's talk Weddings!!! Yay!!!!!!!

Andy made everyone feel at ease during our wedding and was professional, easy going and has a keen eye for detail. We are blown away by our wedding photos and couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer.
Andy kept in contact before & after the wedding and just made everything so easy. Highly recommend!
Thanks again Andy xx

Fun, Love and Laughter
What on earth to say about Andy? He was absolutely incredible for our wedding. He was warm and friendly and really helped to set you at ease. No ask was too big for him - even taking us up to the cathedral to get the shots we desperately wanted following a venue cancellation. All of the photos are amazing and showcased exactly what we wanted out of the day - fun, love and laughter.

Captured the Essence of our Wedding day
Andy was so professional and warm throughout the whole experience, he really captured the whole essence of our wedding day, and I really couldn’t thank him enough for the photos that he has produced! Just a style we wanted☺️ Alongside Andy himself was a pleasure to work alongside!

It was just like having a friend around
We had Andy as our photographer for our wedding in June and we honestly can not fault the service he provided. He was always easy to get hold of prior to the big day and answered any questions we had. On the day itself it was just like having a friend around, he was chatty and friendly making us all laugh. He slipped seamlessly into the background of the day, forgetting he was there snapping away.
We received some teaser photos of our day the very next day and we’re so pleased.

The best day of my life.
Couldn’t recommend AWPhotographic enough, absolutely lovely man. He fit right in, made everyone feel comfortable. Everyone who attended our wedding said how amazing him and his photos were. One couple have even enquired for their wedding!

The BEST wedding photographer!!!
If I could give Andy a million stars I would! Andy was absolutely fantastic! From the minute I saw Andy’s website I knew our pictures were going to be amazing. Excellent experience and really professional. We’ve been married for 3 months and people still talk about how amazing our wedding photographer was. Thank you for helping us create such beautiful photos for us to look back on for all the years to come. If you’re looking for a photographer definitely get in contact with Andy! 😃

Describe your typical process with a couple.
After the initial enquiry I usually set up a meeting to chat and get to know the couple and chat about the day, then I let the couple speak in private at home and if they want to book then a deposit is taken and contract signing is required. The couple have the option to have a pre wedding shoot included, this gives them the chance to get to know me better and my style and get some great shots and tips on posing... I have another meeting with the couple about a month before the wedding to go over everything again and then wedding day..... woo hoo............
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
That one photo that can printed large and put up in the house and visitors will be wowed by.
I want to see the connection between the couple, not a posed photo with cheesy smiles but still a amazing moment between two people in love.
A photo that could be on a movie poster. You're all dressed up, the set is ready now lights, camera, action!!!!!!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Usually I'm the one coming up with the crazy ideas, although I was once asked to photograph one of the groomsmen who had lost a bet and had to wear a thong for the whole wedding day.. I'll leave that image in your head, suffice to say I don't use that photograph in any of my portfolio's.....
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Just enjoy it.. Don't let it ruin your day.. I carry brollies and am super prepared for any eventuality... Theres always an option, we just need to make an alternative awesomeness!!
Describe how you got into photography.
I fell in love with photography at art college back in the film days and went to Uni to study more.. Loved it so much I worked on cruise ships as a photographer for 3 years and then eventually settled down and haven't looked back since.. I love what photography does for people.. The memories and emotions you can invoke with a simple picture... amazing...
