Simon Diamond Photography
Hi, I’m Simon, I’ll be your wedding photographer today. I aim to deliver a relaxed, professional service to all of my clients, providing you with beautiful wedding photos to treasure for a lifetime. I mainly shoot documentary style, not directing or interrupting the flow of events except for formal group photos, so you and your guests can enjoy the big day without feeling like there’s a photographer always over your shoulder. Whatever you need, I’m happy to offer you the right services to make your wedding day truly memorable forever.
What services do you offer?
All wedding day photo and video services are offered, from ceremony only coverage with one photographer to a team of three photographers and videographers covering every aspect of your special day.
What does the wedding package include?
We have multiple packages on offer, all of which have bespoke options to make your package unique. Contact us for more details.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
No. unless booked for 'ceremony only' coverage where there might be two ceremonies in one day, if you book me for your wedding day then you get me for exclusive coverage.
What style of photos do you take?
My style is a hybrid photojournalistic style with some traditional group and portrait shots included. For most of the day however i prefer candid shooting to get real emotions and situations without interfering or steering the flow of events.
What kind of technology do you use?
I am a Nikon shooter, preferring to shoot with fast prime lenses wide open for a more dreamy feel. I also use longer telephoto zoom lenses for candid shooting to be at a distance where i'm not immediately noticeable to guests and can get more natural coverage.
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
All photos will be displayed in a private, password-protected gallery for you to view, and a private folder to download the high resolution copies of the files for your devices.
What's the delivery time for photographic report?
For full day weddings i am to deliver within 3 weeks. Most client get there photos in 2 weeks outside of peak season. For ceremony coverage only photos are dlievered within a week. For all packages a 5-10 photos highlight album is sent to the couple within 1 week.
Do you send all the photos taken?
No. I cull my shots down to get the best photos to tell the story of the day. I then edit my chosen shots and then send between 300 - 800 photos depending on the length of the day and the activities of the day.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I either work as a solo photographer, or with a second shooter & assistant for the day or with a videographer for dual coverage.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
In case of last minute disasters I do have 2/3 replacement photographers i frequently work with who I would contact to cover the wedding.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
yes. you pay for your photos, you can publish or use them in any way you would like as long as it is for personal use. Fr commercial use you would need to seek permission from myself and I would send you a watermarked copy for copyright crediting.
