Price from: £300
Prices start from £300 which covers a day documentation, nothing fancy just covering the basic essentials and generally remaining hidden throughout most of the day, allowing you to not be distracted and worry about photography taking up a huge part of the day. Prices increase upward to £800 for a full consultation, list of desired/essential photos, private session with bride and groom and other details. I would arrange to meet with the bride and groom and discuss the activities throughout the day at the venue to get a good understanding. Video work is a separate £200 cost. Similarly, the basic rate covers the documentation and nothing fancy in terms of angles and effects. The video will then be edited to slice up the ceremony, speeches and where available any other specific details. Documentation will be delivered in digital format after editing up to 2 weeks after the event.

My husband and I were delighted with the photographs that Stephen took at our vow renewal. He managed to capture so many pictures, formal shots, candids, and the small details that mean so much to us. I would highly recommend Stephen as a photographer.

Stephen came early to get a feel for our venue, and to find out exactly what was wanted. When the event began he was unobtusive and took photos at all the times we wanted, and also the video we most wanted. At all times he was polite and helpful and very easy to converse with. An excellent service, which I would certainly recom...

It is fantastic to have Stephen document our Drama Student end of year production at the University of Winchester. Being a graduate from our Department he is clearly passionate about supporting the University and its students and sensitive to the kind of work we do. We use his films to showcase the work at open days and other ...

Stephen has offered his services as event photographer for several Hat Fair events in recent years - particularly our winter version the Woolly Hat Fair. I have been very impressed with how Stephen has managed to capture the character, colour and humour of each event - often in unusual spaces and challenging nighttime lighting c...

I briefly met Stephen at Winchester Hat Fair after he documented some of our work. I was advised to get in you with him afterward to help us produce some film for our company, and I am so so happy I did!

What can I say the guy is a legend! He finished work, hitched a lift to Larmer Tree Festival and sets up to start work str...

What style of photos do you take?
Reportage, documentary, commercial shots. Throughout the day there will be a list of key shots to get and this will be confirmed with the bride and groom. I will also allow for other photos to be requested too. When all the formal group and details shots are complete I will take a lot of reportage shots of guest and friends enjoying themselves. Depending on requirements I would take the bride and groom to a location to capture private, intimate moments. The last photos of the day revolve around the first dance, after which I bid adieu.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
I usually work alone but I have a team of other professional photographers on hand if I need them.
Do you send all the photos taken?
I take a lot of photos throughout the day and whittle them down to a few hundred rather than thousands of the same image. I keep a backup of the original photos if you require more or a different photo than the ones chosen.
What's the delivery time for photographic report?
Typically within 2 weeks.
What kind of technology do you use?
Canon DSLR's and Prime Lenses
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
I upload photos online to a private password protected album for guests to see and access.
What services do you offer?
Half Day, Full Day, Price per Hour Photography/Video capture. Editing of photos and video.
