Castleford Wedding Photography Melanie and Stuart 1

Natural Wedding Photographer providing high-quality photography services in Manchester and North West

a Photographer that cares!

Yes, I care about your wedding, your plans, your ideas, I care about everything which can turn your day into a dream. Your preparations will start a long time before your day, mine as well, that’s why I believe having someone alongside you to help with all these it’s just a bonus. But what I care the most is what you’ll be left with after your wedding. I will design a fantastic wedding album for you, which is going to be created by some great people from nPhoto which you’ll treasure forever. I hope that in 20 years when you’ll look at that album, you’ll relive those moments from your wedding.

Time is priceless

I created these collections only because I want to be helpful from the first moment you will land on my page. I shared all my prices to avoid any wasting time. I don’t want you to spend hours looking for the right information or to write emails and wait for answers or even more information. Everything is clear so please get in touch only if you already scrolled through the website and you think I’m the right person for you.

Being in a budget?

I know this phrase, I had the same words in my mind when I started this business. Same as you, I had a budget to start, which I suppose to stick with. Sadly, I couldn’t as I wanted to get the best gear and provide the best quality possible. Keep in mind – quality is reflected in price in most cases. Of course, I had to go over and I’ve never regretted it. This is probably what you’re going to do as well if you’ll feel its worth it. I include albums in all my collections, some of you may not be happy which is making things easier – I won’t take any wedding if you don’t believe, same as me, that albums are essential and that’s the most beautiful, tangible gift which you’ll have.

Knowing what YOU want

On the same level of importance is the pre-wedding consultation and photo session. All the collections have at least one consultation before the wedding. Don’t try to skip this as it’s going to be the most amazing experience which you’ll have with me. Having the photos taken pre-wedding is just a nice way to get you more relaxed in front of the camera. I will provide a set of tips which will make you look better and more natural without thinking too much.

I’ve got a great set of skills, however, one of them is being a good listener. I will ask you everything about your day, I will take notes and I will advise where necessary. You’ll go with me through the day, we will plan and think, together, how to make the most out of that day.

Some lovely words from couples which I've met, love you all!

The technical side

I could spend hours talking about gear and technology. There are some bits which I want to mention for those who might be interested in what I’m using. In random order, I will just link them:

  • cameras (2x Nikon D750)
  • lenses (15-30, 24-70, 70-200)
  • lights (1xGodox 200w and 3x80w flashes)
  • storage (10TB WD drive, online storage (Pixieset), 2x 6TB raptors) – yes your photos will be stored in 3 different places for safety purposes.
  • computer/editing (latest Nvidia graphics card, 32″ UHD monitor calibrated monthly) software (PS and lightroom)

Lots of other stuff which I won’t mention here, if any of you is fancy talking about this, I’m up for a coffee to discuss more.

Don’t forget!

There are 4 discounts types available anytime:

  • 15% for family or friends of couples who worked with me before
  • 10% for any booking taking on a wedding fayre
  • 10% if you’ll bring me Milka chocolate on our consultation (I’m addicted to Milka chocolate)
  • 5% if full balance is paid in full on the time of booking

You can’t cumulate all these, the only combo is any of first 3 with 5% off. (So if you’ll bring me Milka and you would like to pay full balance you’ll get 15% off your chosen collection).

Let's talk

If you want to arrange a no obligation meeting, then drop me a line and let’s make this happen the way you’re dreaming.
