WHATS YOUR STYLE?

Like the best weddings, my approach to capturing your special day is classic and understated. I don’t like to direct or control the proceedings to much – I much prefer to work in a more natural, unfussy, way. I set aside 15-20 mins during the day for some portraits of the bride and groom, but typically I’m booked for creative editorial / documentary approach.

 

WHATS INCLUDED?
Our most popular selection priced at £1350 includes coverage from the bridal preparations up until the evening, including the first dance. A disc of high res images (approx 350) edited and ready for printing, plus a set watermarked and sized suitable to share on social media sites.
Online Gallery and online highlights slideshow.
I also offer coverage up until the meal and reduced coverage for Monday-Thursday weddings.
To receive a pdf price list with all the info you need please drop me an email with a few details like the date of wedding, location of the ceremony and reception.

 

DO YOU DO FORMAL GROUPS?
Yes, a few group shots are important but no one wants to be standing in a line all day, so typically i shoot 8-10 groups concentrating on immediate family and the bridal party.

 

SOUNDS GREAT, HOW DO WE BOOK?
A non refundable deposit of £300 and a signed contract is required to secure the date, once thats done the wedding date is booked in.

 

CAN WE BUY AN ALBUM?
Of course, albums can be included in a package before or after the wedding, theres no time limit on ordering after the day. For more info on albums click here.

 

CAN WE CHOOSE WHICH PHOTOS GO IN THE ALBUM?
If you like, or let me design it to tell the story of your wedding. All designs are sent to you by pdf to see if any changes are needed.

 

CAN FRIENDS AND FAMILY VIEW THEM ONLINE?
Yes, all weddings are uploaded to a password protected online gallery for 9 months where friends and family can view and order prints and files.

 

WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
Up to 21 days after the wedding.

 

DO WE OWN THE COPYRIGHT?
The copyright stays with Darren Cresswell Photography, if you are having a disc of images you receive a license so you can print and share your photos. The only thing you cant do is sell or supply the photos to a third party for commercial use.
