Wedding photography pricing

What advice do you have for booking a wedding photographer?

My number one piece of advice is to find a photographer who's approach to wedding photography, as well as their style of wedding photography gels with you and what you want from your day. You wouldn't book a jazz band and be disapointed they don't play Reggae. The same applies with wedding photography and is why I am so transparent about my happy, friendly, informal approach, and the creative photography of the personalities and emotions, not people gurning at the camera. I want to be booked by the right couple, not just any couple.

What does your Wedding Photography journey look like?

It is an honour to be invited to be a couple wedding photographer, and I carry that mindset through every part of my service to you. This is why I commit to such short turnaround times of wedding photos. I am available whenever you need me before your wedding to discuss ideas or timings, and even produce a dozen photos, edited and online for you to see the night of your wedding! A service I know no other photographer does.

Lee Hawley Photography isn't a production line. I truly invest in my couples, spending time to understand what makes you tick. Even if you don’t really know what you want, in a brief chat over coffee I will understand how best to approach your day. This results in a set of images personal and tailored to you, and leaving you relaxed and able to enjoy your wedding and not worry about your photographer.

My packages are broken down into time categories so you can get the exact coverage you need, and can supply everything you might want, including engagements shoot, second photographer and an album. My wedding photography pricing starts from £995. Complete the small form at the bottom of this page for a full brochure and price list.

What makes you different?

This is not formal wedding photography! I tell your wedding story naturally and creatively. No awkward poses, no saying cheese, no standing around for photos. My goal is for you to feel like you have a friend as your photographer, and by doing that I capture you at your most you!

It was a pleasure to be asked onto Tony's channel to have a chat about weddings and my work, as well as some fun at the end with a special guest!

How many photos do you provide?

I average about 100 photos per hour. My full day package supplies anything from 800-1200 fully edited images. This equates to about 20 hours of editing and post production time. Many photographers save themselves time by only delivering 400-500 photos for the same full day package. It’s not a question of quantity over quality for me though, I just go that extra mile for my couples and won't tolerate photos being left on my hard drive I know you will enjoy, and not put the time into delivering them. Check out these full sets below and imagine trying to remove more than half of them!

Do you do pre-wedding consultations?

Absolutely. This is more than just finding out when I need to turn up! I will take the time to get to know the style and feel for your day, and how best to work with you both in order to get the most natural images and capture all the special details you have spent time creating.

I am also happy to work with you in figuring out the finer timings for your day, so we can work-in any planned photos to cause the least loss of time. Even photographs of your table decorations need considering. They obviously can’t be done after you’ve eaten, but you also don’t really want me capturing those during your drinks reception and miss photographing the fun and laughs! I consider all these details to get you the maximum value and tell you story in every detail.

How long until we get our photos?

I produce around a dozen photos over the night of your wedding, this means the next morning you have a little highlights story of your day to wake up to, plus you have your new facebook profile pic right away! The full set of images will then be available within 2 weeks off-peak and 1 month peak season. With the hundreds of phone pictures that will be captured on your day and often posted immediately on social media, I don’t think the 2-3 months most photographers work to is acceptable.

What an absolutely incredible human being you are

Lee Hawley Photography - Natasha & Oscar - Tortworth Court - Wedding Photographer -543

Lee, where to begin? What an absolutely incredible human being you are. We cannot even begin to thank you enough for what you did for us by donating your services, and how you made our wedding day that extra bit special.

Having a photographer at our wedding was such an important part for us, and knew the memories held in the photos would last a lifetime. The photos you produced were like nothing we had ever seen before, with such natural emotion being captured in each shot. The photos caught the emotion, detail and mood of the wedding day, and having such a personal feel to them.

Your style was exactly what we were looking for, being candid and natural, but capturing small details and heart-felt expression. Your communication throughout the entire wedding process has been impeccable, and shows how much you care about what you do and about us. The printed photos are gorgeous and the photo box is such a lovely gesture.

We must apologise again for not contacting you on the day you came to visit, and thank you for being so understanding.

It is people like yourself which make us realise how kind, selfless and generous people can really be, and how complete strangers can be so willing to help others out of sheer kindness. Our wedding day was perfect, and it was thanks to you. We wouldn’t have wanted any other wedding photographer. Thank you, from the absolute bottom of our hearts.

Thanks a million,

Natasha & Oscar

Do you do engagement shoots?

My Memoir packages include the opportunity for you both to spend a bit of time with me at a location of your choosing, or if you prefer, somewhere I can suggest to get some stunning shots of you both. It’s is also a great way of getting some experience in front of the camera and understanding how I work. By not making you do awkward poses and instead choosing to just have some fun, I earn your confidence so that when it comes to the day itself, you know what to expect and wont be intimidated! You can also add an engagement to any other package as an extra. See some engagement shoot images here.

​Can you provide a second photographer?

If you want to capture the full journey to the aisle from both of your perspectives, then it might be that a second photographer is required, and I have that covered with a second photographer available on all packages at a cost tailored to your requirements. These aren’t just “second shooters” either. These are professional wedding photographers in their own right and my brochure below includes this wedding photography pricing details.

Can you provide printed albums?

My Memoir package also includes a beautiful 24 page leather bound and engraved album. I create these albums fully bespoke for you. I firstly produce proofs for what I think is a great reflection of your wedding story. You can then tell me if you want any photos swapping or layouts tweaking. You can see my sample album here.
