WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

you won’t know how valuable a photograph is until it’s all you have left.

Wedding Photography is about documenting the story of your big day. Perhaps, more importantly, however, it is also about helping you as a couple reconnect with this day in years to come! After all, when the day is over, your wedding images will be one of the few tangible items you will have left. Your wedding photography will therefore become incredibly valuable to you.

Relax, sit back, and relish in every single moment.

I know you will celebrate your marriage in your own unique way. I also know you want someone you trust to capture each of the precious, unique moments that make up your wedding day. Those that you see, but also those that you don’t. Regardless if you’re having a traditional wedding, a destination wedding, or an elopement, you can relax, confident that we will capture all the laughs, tears, and emotions. We’ll create timeless images of the best day of your life that will enable you to relive and connect with those fleeting once-in-a-lifetime moments from your wedding day. So go ahead. Relax, enjoy your day, laugh with your guests, pour another glass, and just be in the moment.

MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE

I know you’re looking for someone to create dramatic documentary and editorial-feeling portraiture that will stand the test of time. I love the cinema and that inspires me to bring that aesthetic with all its beautiful framing to my imagery. My photography style is all about using light and shadows to create a mixture of classic artistic portraits alongside reportage-style moments, resulting in timeless imagery that is full of raw emotion.

PROMPTED NOT POSED

I know you want moments captured; not contrived. I know you’re likely to be worried about being awkward or overly posed. Posed wedding photography has its place and there are certain wedding photographs that have to be more organised, such as group shots. However, you can relax. For your wedding portraits, I prefer to prompt rather than pose you as much as possible. The rest of your images will be documentary style so you can relax and enjoy your day and be in the moment confident we have it in hand.

the COLLECTIONS
& PRICING

All your images will be individually retouched, and are available for you to enjoy in your own personal online image gallery to do with as you, please. Share them with family and friends. Print them as much as you want, wherever you want, and to whatever size you want. With that in mind, I want you to have the best of the best so you also get access to a professional print lab from within your gallery.

I also know that one size does not fit all when it comes to your wedding, so that’s why I offer a range of optional extras so you can really make your wedding collection your own. From speed edits and additional coverage to our wonderful handcrafted and beautiful wedding albums.

Our full-day wedding collections for photo start from £2000 each, with elopements and bespoke collections available.

It’s important for us to meet in person at our studio or via video link. I would love to discover your plans and what you value, so I can guarantee that you have exactly what you need for your wedding day.

FINDING A WEDDING VENDOR CAN BE HARD…

Rest assured, with 12 years of experience capturing over 500+ weddings in the UK and worldwide, I have encountered various scenarios and environments. My commitment goes beyond just showing up on the wedding day to take photos.

REQUEST INFORMATION

CONTACT US

You DESERVE the absolute BEST for your WEDDING DAY. That’s why I want to make sure I am the RIGHT CHOICE for you as a COUPLE.

It’s so important to me that my couples are happy and confident with their choice in asking me to document their wedding. As such, I do not take every wedding I’m approached to capture. I prefer to work with couples who share my brand values and who ultimately are confident we are a good match.

I’d love to hear more about you as a couple and learn more about your story, so fill out the contact form and I’ll be in touch.

why PRINTS MATTER

Whilst your digital prints are important, there is nothing quite like holding something tangible in your hands to connect you to a moment. Albums and prints allow your photographs to come to life in a way a digital file just can’t. Your wedding photographs become something to be cherished, experienced and preserved for generations to some rather than bypassed on your social media feed. That’s why all our clients get access to our professional print quality lab, and the option to purchase one of our hand crafted bespoke wedding albums.

Frequently
Asked Questions

A professional wedding photographer should always carry both full public liability and professional indemnity insurance. If your venue requires proof of this, we are happy to provide this to them.

Absolutely! Not everyone out there will be, though, so it is important to ask.

Between engagements, elopements, destination weddings and traditional weddings, you will find me in the studio editing and meeting new couples.

I also photograph significantly within the music industry. From tours with artists such as The Script. West-End shows such as Wicked. Right through to more commercial jobs such as the official photographer for the Pride of Britain Awards or working on artist album covers.

We will show the specific contractual payment dates on your invoice, but because we offer our clients live invoicing, you can essentially make payments on a basis that suits you, as long as you meet the key contractual payment dates below, which are:

25% of the total booking as a non-refundable retainer fee (commonly referred to as the deposit). This is due at the time of booking in order to reserve your wedding date. This also covers our initial administrative costs.

25% of the total booking no later than 3 months before the wedding.

Final balance payment is due 4 weeks before your wedding date.

From Land’s End to John O’Gaunt. No area of the UK is out of our reach, and we regularly document weddings across the UK. From the busy streets of Kensington, London, the remote Scottish Highlands to the beaches of Cornwall. No wedding venue is too far away from us.

A personal use licence gives you the right to print your own wedding images, should you not want to use our professional print labs.  Our professional print lab partners can be accessed from within your gallery.

The personal use licence also gives you the right to share on social media and online.

This is not a licence for any commercial usage.

If your wedding is within a 50-mile radius of our studio in Lancaster, UK, no further travel or accommodation charges will be added.  Should your wedding day be further afield, there may be additional costs. However, this will be agreed in advance where possible.

We are not wedding planners. However, once you become a Jono Symonds client, we are there every step of the way to assist you if we can with your wedding day plans. From helping you with the timeline of your day to sharing ideas, recommending suppliers and other industry contacts.

I currently photograph with professional Canon Cameras. These are the latest professional camera bodies and unlike many standard cameras shoot to two memory cards minimising any potential risk. I also carry two cameras on me at anyone time, excluding our backups.

Our wedding photography collections contain coverage to guarantee you 400 jpeg images, however, most weddings we photograph will result in more than this. We essentially provide you with enough to tell the story of your wedding day.

From your wedding day, it should be approximately 10-12 weeks for full delivery of your wedding gallery as stated in the contract.

We have never missed a deadline, but for those of you looking to customise your experience, we offer shorter delivery times for an additional cost should you require them.
