Wedding and Portrait Packages

I only do one ‘Package’ because one package is all you need. It’s called ‘Your’s Truly’ and I make it specifically for each client. When I do yours it will have your name on it and in it will be everything you need. Please be aware that I now only photograph weddings that are mainly ‘Documentary’ in approach. In other words not endless shots of guests lined up against a wall or overly posed shots of the wedding couple away from their guests. After all a wedding is a wedding and NOT a photoshoot.

We all know that memories can be priceless but hiring a photographer can be an expensive minefield. Some photographers never mention prices at all. Others bundle together various aspects of their work into so called ‘packages’ with some trivial things included and other things missing, to be added later at additional cost of course.

My prices are open and transparent, based on location, time and materials. Your wedding or portrait photography is treated as an individual assignment and I will give you whatever you want in a very affordable way.

You will receive, within a couple of days (yes, days), a disc with a complete set of image proofs from your wedding or Portrait session. These are not watermarked and yours to keep and use as you wish. These unedited shots enable you to choose those images you want to be fully styled, edited, retouched and ready to print from your finished disc. The Proof Images are downsized to facilitate correct viewing on PC or ‘Phablets’ (1024 px long side)

For weddings, most of my work costs between £450 to £1,300. In the £450 – £700 range are shorter, local weddings with about 100 selected FSER images provided. The £800 – £1,300 range could typically include a pre-shoot, usually a large, high quality photobook, cover for a longer wedding day and many more selected FSER images on disc. In between these are lots of variations to suit everybody. With easy to understand options, with clear pricing, it is very easy to build your own complete package ensuring you get exactly what you want for a great price.


Beyond £1,500 is really for exotic extras, distant locations or bespoke Book/Album binding. I can do your wedding book bound in hand stitched leather from goats raised on the organic meadows of Tuscany, embossed with real gold leaf if that’s what you really want, but this does add to the expense.

The exact price of your package will depend on the time and materials we agree to used to complete the assignment.

Differences between Albums and Photobooks

For portrait sessions there is a basic call out fee then the cost is based on the number of FSER images you select. Just to give an example, a two hour portrait session in Aberdeen with the client taking 25 FSER images would cost about £140 whereas 2 hours out in The Shire with the client taking 40 FSER images would be about £290.

As well as a very full range of choices for Traditional Albums and the more modern press printed Photobooks, I also can provide special enlarged prints on a range of surfaces, i-Book versions of your Photobook and, your photographs featured in a Full HDTV animated slide show.

All work is invoiced after delivery. There are no hidden extras or surprises.

If you e-mail me some basic details of your wedding and how you want it photographed and how you prefer to view it, I will send you some outline proposals that should interest you:

It’s as simple as that.
