CAPTURING YOUR wedding DAY & TELLING YOUR STORY
Wedding Photography is all about you and your big day! Celebrating it in your unique way. From the big grand weddings to destination weddings and elopements we believe a wedding day is more than just saying "I do". As a wedding photographer we want to capture every moment, every laugh, tear and emotion to create timeless images of the best day of your life.
I love the cinema and that inspires me to bring that aesthetic with all its beautiful framing to my imagery. It's all about the light and shadows. My photography style is a mix of documentary and editorial portraiture. I capture a mixture of classic artistic portraits alongside reportage-style moments creating real and genuine images that are full of raw emotion.
Posed wedding photography has it's place and there are certain wedding photographs that have to be more organised. For example group shots. For your wedding portraits I prefer to prompt rather than pose you. Everything else is created as it happens. You want moments captured; not contrived. The images we want to create will be timeless and classic.
I believe in CAPURING YOUR LOVE STORY TO CREATE CLASSIC CINEMATIC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY FULL OF RAW EMOTION
We want to document your full day and create something unique and beautiful. We always start with bridal preparations and continue right through to the evening celebrations. Traditional wedding photography coverage is about 6 to 8 hours. We have been doing wedding photography long enough to have learnt not to restrict ourselves to that window of time, as you miss too much. Many of the most beautiful moments in a wedding will happen outside that time frame, and we'll be there to capture them for you.
Emotion, tears, laughter - We want to document it all. We keep things simple. We have one collection which covers your full day and creates unique and beautiful IMAGERY.
You will receive 400+ images, entirely edited high-resolution images. All presented in your very own online private gallery, to download. Your gallery is perfect to keep to yourselves or share with family and friends. With your collection, you will also receive a personal use licence. Optional extras are available such as a speed edit ot our bespoke wedding albums, which are hand-crafted, and beautifully presented. We would love to be part of your day. Feel free to get in contact for more information
A pre-wedding shoot or engagement shoot lets you show your loved ones how and where your love story began. It adds so much to the story of who you are as a couple right now, and they really are an ideal way to get comfortable in front of the camera before your big day. Our pre-wedding shoots are an excellent opportunity for us to get to know each other, and build a relationship. The shoots are friendly and relaxed and give you confidence in choosing us as your wedding photographer.
We require a £350.00 non-refundable retainer fee (commonly referred to as the deposit) at the time of booking in order to reserve your wedding date. We ask for incremental payments in the runup to your wedding, but the final balance is due 4 weeks before your wedding date.
Yes, absolutely. 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 if you let us know in advance.
Absolutely, between our weddings, touring with likes of The Script, photographing West-End shows such as Wicked, to being the offical photographer for the Pride of Britain Awards. Photography is in my blood. When I'm are not out photographing you will find me in the studio editing and meeting new couples.
Once you become a Jono Symonds client, we are here every step along the way to help you with your wedding day plans. From helping you with the timeline of your day to sharing ideas, recommending suppliers and other industry contacts.
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 rights to share on social media and online. This is not a licence for any commercial usage.
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 us at anyone time, excluding our backups.
From your wedding day it will be a maximum of 8 weeks for full delivery of your wedding gallery as is 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.
From Lands End to John O'Gaunt no area of the UK is out of our reach. 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.
If your wedding is within a 100 mile radius of Lancaster, UK no further travel or accomodation charges will be added. Should your wedding day be further afield, there maybe additional costs, however this will be capped and clearly stated during your booking.
Our wedding photography collections contain coverage to gurantee you 400+ 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.
We will be in touch with you shortly!
