Let's keep things simple
Your wedding is unique and I want to tell the full story of your day – so I’ll arrive early for the preparations and stay well into the evening when the party is in full swing.
I want you to know that I am available to you in the lead up to your wedding to help you plan what photographs you want to have captured, when those moments are best captured and importantly how long you should budget timewise for your photographs.
Wedding Commissions £600
As a guide, for a full day of photography you can expect to receive at least 300 high-resolution photographs and an A3 print of your choosing. Each one individually retouched for quality and consistency. I find that this number of photographs is more than enough to tell the story of your day, although you are free to choose which photographs I retouch if you wish.
You are also free to print and share the full size high-resolution photographs with family and friends without restriction, although I do offer personalised professional prints in a variety of sizes up to A2 size on heavy archival papers from Canson - they've been making paper for 500 years and they know how to make it last!
For weddings outside greater London, travel expenses may be negotiated but are generally not included until a final quotation is provided.
What about a wedding album and destination weddings?
Every wedding is different and the couples needs to vary so I'm more than happy to customise quotes based on your needs and wants.
Bespoke packages are available for destination weddings and I offer a discount for mid-week weddings and more intimate celebrations with a smaller budget or for those that wish me to collate a wedding album for you. Also, if you are planning something out of the ordinary I’d love to hear about it!
Frequently Asked Questions
Wedding Photography is what I love and my goal is to tell your story creatively and generally be a trusted advisor when it comes to planning your big day.
For instance, I recommend that following the ceremony you allow at least 30-45 minutes to allow your guests to congratulate you as in my experience these are some of the most emotionally charged moments of happiness.
Shortly after, I'd recommend a group photograph of all the guests that attended the ceremony as not all will be able to make it to the reception and (if being honest) everyone is still sober! I'd also recommend you set aside 1-2 hours before the reception to get some personal shots of you happy couple and the bridal party at any near by or special locations when the stress of entertaining is relaxed and you're enjoying your first moments being married!
Having said this, I try to let your day unfold naturally and be unobtrusive as possible documenting your special day.
Why don't you have a pricing and package list here on your website?
Totally fair question. The truth is that no two weddings or couples are the same, and for me to give you an accurate quote, I need to meet with you to go over everything that you want. I have basic wedding package starting as low as £600 which will include a selection of edited high resolution digital photographs (enough to tell the story of your day) and an A4 print.
Weddings have so many different variables that go into them, and oftentimes people are not sure about everything that they need. The main difference between my packages comes down to the type of coverage (i.e. if more than one photographer is needed), whether a wedding album or prints are to be included. In order to make sure that I am helping you pick the best options, I have found that setting up a quick meeting is the best way to do that.
This is a HUGE decision, and I want you to make sure that I have the best choice for you. I can meet evenings, weekends, and for clients that are out of the area (or given the Covid situation) I can meet via Zoom or Skype.
During your consultation I will show you albums, prints, and find similar weddings I've shot that best resembles the type of wedding that you will have (beach, vineyard, and even cheeky fun gold club weddings). I will go over what is possible in retouching and engagement session possibilities (if that is something you'd be interested in).
What Makes Captured by Scott different?
I has been in business for over 10 years. I have photographed weddings all throughout the world including the UK, Germany, France and Australia. I not only shoot weddings but also am an experienced headshot and event photographer. I understand lighting and what to do in circumstances where lighting is not always ideal (i.e in a church or darkened reception all).
Whatever the situation, whether it be under stress of a tight time line, lighting conditions or the weather, you are in good hands and I will be able to find a solution. Yes, I give you good pictures, that is a given, but more importantly we want you to have a great experience from start to finish.
What's more, your digital photographs will be ready within three weeks after your wedding (although prints and albums may take longer depending on my suppliers).
Steps to Booking Your Wedding With Me
Step 1 - Book an Appointment
Please get in touch via the contact page and let me know as much information as you can about your special day and what (if any) expectations you have. If you can provide me with your number and a suitable time, I'll give you a call to discuss and potentially arrange a face to face meet if that is suitable, or a Skype call.
I will show you wedding albums, prints, and some more of my portfolio - BUT I want to ensure I customise your wedding coverage personally for you so I want to know about your wedding and what you are looking for.
Step 2 - Choose Your Package
I will put together options that will suit your wedding and needs based on your wedding. I never will try to oversell you coverage that you do not need because I'm committed to being there the whole event anyway. All packages include high resolution digital images of those edited and unedited photographs and at least one A4 print. Engagement sessions, albums and prints can be added at additional cost. My goal is to find the best option that works for you, you can always add more options later.
Step 3 - Book Your Date
After you have made a selection of your package, I will draft a contract and summary of your coverage. Once that is signed electronically, you will be able to pay your deposit, and once you do your date will be locked in!
Engagement sessions are a great way for me to get to meet and photograph you without the stress of the wedding. Most find it is a great way to start getting comfortable in front of the camera. Let me know if you'd like to schedule one in too.
Step 4 - Create Your Memories!
If an album is something you opt for, your story is unique. I will customise your experience uniquely for you.
Services that I offer
We live in a digital world, but some things are still meant to be printed. If you opt for an album, your wedding album will be the cornerstone of our work on your wedding. It is the final product I provide to you, and I will have a special role to play in your family for generations to come. There are a few things to understand about wedding albums.
1. Your Wedding Album is a Storybook
My goal isn’t to take your wedding photos, and then make an album out of the photos that were taken. I shoot with intention of album design in mind. The point here is that I am not just a “picture-taker,” but will artfully capture stories that will end up in an album layout.
2. I shoot and design with the intention to invoke Memory
They say that images are directly tied to memory, something as simple as a facial expression can influence how you perceive that memory? My wedding albums are designed to not only make you remember what was happening on your wedding day, but also to make you remember how you were feeling when the images were taken.
3. Quality Craftsmanship is key to preserving your memories
My wedding albums are handmade in Germany with quality products in a variety of different 'looks' and are all inspected and verified for quality before being delivered to yourself.
Your wedding photos are only a part of your story. I want to make sure that we are telling your full story from start to finish. Therefore, an engagement session are a great way to get to know me and help you start being comfortable in front of the camera.
Let me know if you are interested in this too and I can incorporate this into your quotes.
