Pricing

I’m aware that pricing for wedding photography may appear to be one of life’s little mysteries but, I like to be honest and transparent with my prices, what’s covered, no confusing pricing structures here!

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life; you invest a lot of time and money into this day that you have been planning for years. When the hangover has gone, the guest book read, and the cake has been enjoyed, you will only have the images to look back on.

Full-Day Coverage £995 – No Messing.

 

Full-Day -> Me all day from start to finish – upto 12 hours or longer if the party is jumping!

Images -> 350+ fully edited high-resolution images (typically I deliver 400-600 images for a busy wedding) all delivered without watermark.

Tailored -> I work around YOUR timings, it’s your day, not mine!

Edits -> All images delivered in colour, categorised into manageable galleries along with a ‘SaywellHQ Picks’ gallery of images which tells the story of your day.

Delivery -> Unlimited digital downloads via your secure online gallery, ability to share, favourite and print via your secure gallery. To see an example of a SaywellHQ Wedding Gallery – CLICK HERE

Website -> A dedicated page on SaywellHQ with a small story from me along with images from your wedding – great for sharing with family and friends.

B&W Option -> As part of the full day package you will receive a selection of B&W images as part of the ‘SaywellHQ Picks Gallery’ but you may want to have all the images in B&W as well. For £300 I will edit all your delivered wedding images in B&W alongside colour.

4-Hour Coverage £600

 

I get a lot of requests for ‘Ceremony Only’ coverage, so for 2019 onwards, I’m pleased to be able to offer a simple package which is for 4-hours of coverage. This 4-hour coverage package starts 30 minutes before the wedding ceremony and can include a small selection of family formals and a few simple couples portraits – but as with my full day package, I won’t take you away from your guests for hours on end – just 20 minutes is all we need.

If you are looking for candid, natural and honest documentary wedding photography and only want a small part of your wedding day photographed – the 4-hour package may be all you need!

You Get Me -> 30 minutes before the ceremony to the 4 hour agreed time (extra hours can be added at £100 per hour unless agreed otherwise).

Images -> Fully edited high-resolution images no watermark.

Tailored -> I work around YOUR timings, it’s your day, not mine!

Edits -> All images delivered in colour, categorised into manageable galleries along with a ‘SaywellHQ Picks’ gallery of images which tells the story of your day.

Delivery -> Unlimited digital downloads via your secure online gallery, ability to share, favourite and print via your secure gallery. To see an example of a SaywellHQ Wedding Gallery – CLICK HERE

Website -> A dedicated blog page on SaywellHQ with a small story from me along with images from your wedding – great for sharing with family and friends.

B&W Option -> As part of the 4 hours package you will receive a selection of B&W images as part of the ‘SaywellHQ Picks Gallery’ but you may want to have all the images in B&W as well. For £200 I will edit all your delivered wedding images in B&W alongside colour.

FAQ’s

 

I’ve been asked many wedding questions over the years, so thought I’d create a little list which should cover the answers to most questions, but if you have a question that isn’t answered – please get in touch.

 

Around 6 to 8 weeks before your wedding we will arrange a meet-up at a coffee shop, pub or a place close to you and we will go through the final timings of your day. Given the distance I travel for weddings, I prefer to meet once before the big day; with most communication done via Skype, email and text.

I aim to give you as many images as I can; each wedding is different. Some weddings all go, with so much going off while others are much calmer. I deliver anywhere between 300 – 600 individual photos which are delivered in colour with some images in black and white within the ‘SaywellHQ Picks Gallery’.

Yes and no. But mainly no. I work on my own for 90% of my weddings, but I do offer an additional photographer for those couples who want double coverage of the morning/getting ready part of a wedding day. Those couples who want both, say the Groom & Groom getting ready shots and are getting ready at different locations and it’s a distance that would compromise my coverage, then the additional photographer add-on is something you should consider. The costs for this add-on is £350. I only use photographers whom themselves are wedding photographers, a lot of wedding photographers sell the idea of a second photographer and use students or new photographers looking to gain experience.

I will upload your images to your secure online gallery within two weeks after your wedding. This gallery offers free downloads for you and your guests, it’s password-protected, offering print sales and is my main way of delivering your full-res wedding photos. If you would like a USB containing all your images, please take a look HERE.

While my style is based on unstaged and natural photos, I do understand the need to have a few formal photos. I like to get the group shots done quickly after the ceremony, and I do recommend you limit the group shots to around 5 or 6 which means we can get them done quickly and not make everyone stand around – especially if it’s the middle of summer or the middle of winter… The quickest way of getting the group shots done is for one of the ushers to round up the people you would like in the formal group shots- my personal best is 10 minutes for group formals! Please have a read of this article I wrote about Stress Free Wedding Group Shots And Family Formals

The price above is an all in price for weddings within 50 miles of NG13. If you are getting married and the distance is further than 50 miles, please get in touch – I’m sure we can work something out!

Yep – fully insured for public and professional indemnity – some venues will only let me onsite with fully comprehensive insurance.

If I am completely incapacitated I will contact another professional wedding photographer to come and shoot your wedding. I will endeavour to never leave you without someone to photograph your wedding, but touch wood I’ve never missed a wedding or been close to missing one!

The first thing to do is to get in contact HERE, please fill out as much information as you can, I will then get back to you as soon as possible to arrange a quick informal chat over the phone. From there if you wanted to book, I will ask you to complete a booking form which will then generate a wedding contract. The wedding contract secure link will be sent via email; all you need to do is digitally sign the contract. Once you have digitally signed the contract a deposit is required to secure me for your wedding – £200 the deposit can be paid via bank transfer or debit/credit card – all options are available once you have digitally signed the contract – nice and easy!
