My pricing is very much based on an attitude of 'pay as you can' and therefore affordable for anyone who needs photographs and loves my way of seeing and documenting things.
Ideally, I would like to be paid £1500 for documenting your wedding*.
In addition to the time spent documenting your special day it takes 4 to 5 days editing, uploading & liaising.
I prefer documenting your whole day regardless of budget; this has two advantages:
Once you have worked out your budget for photography lets have a CONVERSATION about the details.
*(this includes a pre-Wedding meet-up, Getting Ready to First Dance documenting, images (approx. 30 per hour documenting) in a beautifully presented, shareable private online gallery and personal printing licence to the downloadable high res image set.)
Other Photography & Workshops
CONSIDER in addition to the time spent photographing, there is time spent editing/processing/sending your images.
REFER to the Artist Union rates here https://www.artistsunionengland.org.uk/rates-of-pay/ or National Union of Journalists here http://www.londonfreelance.org/feesguide/index.php as a guideline of fair fees.

Do you shoot destination weddings?
A.Absolutely ... who wouldn't! Let's discuss the details.
Will there be a second shooter?
A.If that's what you would like, we can arrange to draw on someone from my circle of talented fellow photographers. However, they will need paying too so this would be an additional budgetary consideration.
Can I extend the session on the day of the session?
A.Golden Rule number 1
"everything is a conversation".
Let's discuss it and come to an arrangement if extra time is needed or wanted.
What kind of gear do you use?
A.Photography is about the art of seeing and not about the gear.
For the curious:
Canon 60 D, Canon 5 Mark iii
50 f1.4 Canon lens
27-70 f2.8 Sigma
70-200 f2.8 Sigma
Depending on location: portable Elinchrome softboxes/flash
Do I have to order prints through you?
You have a choice:
You can order prints direct from the Image Gallery and they will be sent to you direct from Loxley Photo lab and so can your friends and family.
You can download the set at highest resolution available and then have them printed at a lab of your choice or print yourself even.

"We were very touched by Simone's quality of photography that brought out the best highlights of a very memorable day. She has a great eye for capturing the moment. Simone put us at ease with her friendly approach, making sure in advance she knew what photos we were after and on the day of the wedding was proactive and present without distracting us from the day itself."
