Full Description
When booking a photographer for your wedding or your elopement it can be a daunting and troublesome task. You may not know how to compare costs or styles, not sure what you like or simply worry your photographer will not understand what you really want. So let me tell you what type of wedding I love to photograph.... I only capture small intimate weddings and elopements of less than 45 people. Why? I hear you ask.... Well up to recently I was a full time wedding photographer with my other business Wilson White Photography. After 12 years and over 300 weddings I have retired from the large busy weddings. Instead of the large affair with thousands of photos, I now provide a far higher level of personal service and spend a far greater time and care with my wedding photography, especially the editing process. I only take on 6 weddings a year by application and only the smaller intimate affairs. I love to travel and therefore accept applications to capture your day anywhere in the world. If your venue or location is on my bucket list then I wont even charge for traveling or accommodation. All my fees are bespoke so if you wish to apply then please fill the form on my website or email for further information and I will prepare a dedicated quotation for you and your day. All wedding clients receive a free drone video to accompany your images. (Weather and air space permitting)

What about your business are you most proud of?

The art I create to tell the story of your day, making my bride and groom (or bride and bride /Groom and Groom) smile with delight when they see their photos.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Make sure you have enough time for everything (especially photos) and give yourself time together on the day because its over before you know it. Make videography and Photography your priority because after the dress is hung back up and everyone's gone - they are still around to see forever! Relive that day over and over!

I love the rustic details of the tipi weddings, the love in the air during those initimate moments. Ive seen so many beautiful touches i couldn't list them all.
