Price from: £225

Hi, my name is AJay and my hair is blue.
Welcome to Blue Jay Photography.

My style is allot like me; colourful, romantic at heart and buckets of fun!

My portfolio reflects a modern mix of documentary and romantic style and i've been capturing weddings and special events for nearly six years!

What I love most about capturing weddings is all the happy faces! Getting to spend what is literally the happiest day of your life with you, makes me feel excited and privileged! I'd be delighted to chat to you about your wedding or special occasion and I can't wait to share your excitement!

​I'm a perfectionist, fun loving person with a passion for making people happy. Negativity isn't a word I know the meaning of, so let's chat about your big happy wedding day!

I offer four wedding photography packages - from mini packages to the full shebang!

My photography style is described as 'documentary' or 'reportage'- which basically means I hide in the background, capturing moments as they happen naturally! I specialise in bold striking colours and artful black and white photography, giving you a timeless collection of beautiful and fun photographs of your wedding day, telling its narrative honestly, for you to cherish your happy memories for years to come.

If this sounds like what you are looking for in a wedding photographer, get in touch for a no obligation bespoke quote!

""She went above and beyond for us. AJay did our wedding photography at Pendrell Hall. She was amazing! We got married during covid-19 and she did her best to meet all the needs and requests. Our pictures are amazing, she captured some beautiful moments of our day and her attention to detail was spot on! (And I'm a very picky person!) She went above and beyond for us and the pictures reflect this. I will most certainly be recommending her. She is the sweetest person I've ever met.

""We had such a fun experience having our photos done. We cannot recommend AJay enough! Anyone looking for a photographer in the Midlands this is the girl you must book with!!! I can honestly say that our photos are absolutely incredible. I am normally very picky with photos but I absolutely love every single one of them and so does my husband. We had such a fun experience having our photos done, we felt comfortable and not awkward at all. (We did worry about this beforehand since we've not had a photographer focus on us before like this) She was very professional yet fun; all of our photos are very creative, fun, natural and just beautiful!!! We also could not believe how quickly we had our photos sent to us and to top that off we even had a follow up message to make sure we have received everything and are happy.

As soon as I met AJay I knew I made the right decision. I initially did not want a photographer due to being so self-conscious. A family friend told me that I would regret it so I caved. As soon as I met AJay I knew I made the right decision. She is so professional and incredibly talented. I viewed my photos today and they are better than what I could of imagined. Thank you so much AJay.

I know what poses make a good photograph so I am happy to discuss style with you. I will provide a lovely mix of colour and black and white photographs unless otherwise specified- you'll be spoiled for choice! Any specific requests must be made clear at the time of booking.

  • What kind of technology do you use?

    We shoot with a canon 5D Mark III which is above industry standard. For videography we use a directional microphone and a professional tascam recording device.

    We send you an exclusive download link for all of your beautiful edited photographs the second they are ready! Only people with a link can access the gallery giving you full control over who gets to share then with you.

  • Do you send all the photos taken?

    You will receive lovely polished edited copies of every photograph we take. We do not provide original raw files.

  • Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

    Most packages require only one professional, however we have a team of trusted comrades at the ready if you require more hands on deck.

  • In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

    In the unlikely event of extreme circumstances, we have a list of reliable contacts to find a replacement photographer.

  • Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

    The copyright of the photographs remains with the photographer. This means that the client can reproduce them for personal use only. This also means that we have the right to watermark any photos, however as a courtesy we tend to only select a few to watermark.

  • What is the turnaround for receiving the photos/videos?

    I do my absolute best to get your gorgeous photographs and videos to you as quick as possible - I know how excited you must be. Typically, I advise 2-4 weeks for photography (depending on the package you chose) and 4-8 weeks for videography. If you have a deadline in mind please do get in touch and I'll see what we can do to help. Requesting a quicker turn around may incur a charge to get the job done in good time. Please note I do not typically offer amendments to photographs. Small amendments may be made to videos at the editors discretion.

  • Payment and deposits - how does it work?

    Typically, wedding bookings require a £100 booking fee to secure your date. The booking fee is non-refundable and secures the date requested by the client and compensates the photographer for any loss of business incurred if cancellation occurs. The booking fee is deductible from the total cost of your package. The outstanding balance is to be paid on or before the date of two week before your service is due to start. I am able to offer tailored payment plans under special circumstances at the photographers discretion. In the event of late payment, a charge of £10 per day of lateness will incur to be added to the outstanding balance. Other events require full payment in advance at the time of booking. ​ Cancellations made by the client with more than 14 days notice: The booking fee in non -refundable. The client will not be required to pay any outstanding balance. Cancellations made by the client with 14 days or less notice: The booking fee is non refundable and the client will be required to pay the outstanding balance. Cancellations made by the photographer: A full refund will be issued if a suitable alternative photographer cannot be sourced.

  • My USB is faulty, what do I do?

    A standard 3.0 flash drive is included in every wedding package. The USB holds a thirty day guarantee starting from the date you receive it (although with proper care and use it should last many years). If your USB is faulty or breaks within 30 DAYS (through no fault of your own) it will be replaced free of charge. Please note, faulty USB's will only be replaced once, and is subject to the original being returned. Corrupted USB's through misuse will not be replaced. Replacements after the 30 day guarantee will be subject to normal costs.

  • Looking After your USB

    USB's are for personal use only. USB's should only be inserted into a computer or laptop. Please do not try to use your USB in a TV, monitor, tablet or other device. Do not force your USB as it may cause damage. When you are finished looking at your photos, you will need to 'eject' the USB. This is done by right clicking the drive in 'my computer' (PC) or 'finder' (MAC) and clicking 'eject' or 'eject safely'. Failure to do so may cause your USB to corrupt. A replacement will not be considered for USB's that corrupt through misuse. Please ensure your USB is stored safely away from children and does not get wet.

  • Do we need to feed you?

    Nope! I'm a fussy eater so I take care of myself.

  • Can I share the photos with friends and family?

    Unfortunately no. The contract and purchase is between you and I, therefore you have the right to print and post your photos online however other people do not. Therefore I ask that you do not share the password to your gallery with other people. But fear not! Friends and relatives can purchase a link to your digital files for just £10 per person. This gives them them right to post on social media and print as they wish.

  • Do you have insurance?

    Yes I have full professional coverage including public liability insurance, professional indemnity insurance and equipment coverage.

    Yes! You can view and read my standard contract by visiting this link: https://4dd6b8b0-17a6-4a3f-a618-c62d3df363c8.filesusr.com/ugd/62fd6b_6348470381c14bd0aea76f17786c2740.pdf

This is at the photographers discretion. ​ Less than two weeks notice: If you have paid in full and wish to postpone your wedding, at the photographers discretion any and all payments made may be moved to your new date, subject to availability.
