Not so long ago, I simplified how I charge for weddings and switched to offering an hourly rate. There is no catch and there is no minimum so every now and then I shoot really short coverage. And it’s amazing how much photography can be achieved in just two hours. In fact, Jessica and Giles were on such a tight budget that they were not going to have a photographer at all.


Their Maid of Honour, Minh got in touch with me to see if she could gift them a shoot to compensate but once we got to chatting, I explained that I could happily shoot the wedding for a couple of hours for the same rate as a couple shoot. We had time for the end of bridal prep, the ceremony, portraits and groups. I get pretty booked up but if I’ve got space then these short and sweet days are always fun to do.

Well maybe I’m just thinking that the rooms are all on fire, EVERY TIME that you walk in the room. Well there is magic all around you, if I do say so myself. Well I have known this much longer than I’ve know you …
