what will


It would be an honour to capture your special day. Below are the details about how I work and the costs attached. I understand that every wedding is unique, so please do get in touch if you have something special in mind or are working on a budget.


Choose your story type…

No two stories are the same but to make things a little easier I’ve outlined some packages below to choose from. These make it easy to choose from but if there’s something you would like changing don’t be afraid to ask. These can all be customised to work to your particular story.


The basic package. The same photography coverage without the extras to make your story last. You can add extras to this package from the optional extras section below.

  • Includes truly full day coverage (no time limits).
  • An unobtrusive documentary style to tell the real story of your wedding day.
  • An online gallery of all your images you can send to family and friends who can purchase their own prints direct.
  • A wedding preshoot to get you comfortable being in front of the camera.
  • Consultations before you book and a week or two prior to the wedding day to discuss your day.
  • Helpful guides and information to help you plan your perfect day.




The best value package. The same fantastic capturing of your story with extras that you’ll never want to let go.

All the features of the Novella plus:

  • The best way to look at your wedding story is in its printed form. A high quality album in a case that can stand as a frame when not being flicked through. (worth £350 on its own) Customization and upgrade options are available as extras.
  • An exclusive coupon for you and your guests to use for a month after the photos go live to save money on prints and wall art.
  • Consultations before you book and a week or two prior to the wedding day to discuss your day.
  • Helpful guides and information to help you plan your perfect day



The deluxe package. An upgraded album, an extra photoshoot and more! For those who love to have the complete story.

All the features of the Novel & Novella plus:

  • Two parents albums, a smaller version of your album, to give to parents as a gift.
  • Your choice from a selection of printed products choosing from the engagement or wedding photographs.
  • A USB with all the digital files included plus a selection of small prints in a special presentation box
  • Consultations before you book and a week or two prior to the wedding day to discuss your day.
  • Helpful guides and information to help you plan your perfect day.


Shorter Coverage

For those smaller weddings that are looking for a few hours of coverage. I cover the ceremony and a few hours of the reception. This is great for those not planning a huge celebration and want to keep it small and intimate.

  • Up to 4 hours of photography coverage
  • Guests arriving
  • Ceremony
  • Couple portraits
  • Group Shots
  • Images available on a dedicated online gallery
  • Option to keep me around for the whole evening for an extra £200




Your story is unique to you and you can make your wedding photography unique too. Choose from the options below to make the most of your photos.

  • Wedding Albums (two options starting at £350)
  • Parent albums (available on request starting at £100)
  • Pre wedding shoot  (£150)

Steve made our day extra special by giving us some beautiful photos that we will have forever

Abbie & Kate



Every story needs start somewhere so where better than with the main characters! This is the chance to get comfortable with the camera in a relaxed shoot that is all about you both as people. During the shoot we’ll learn more about each other so I’ll know what works best for you as a couple on the wedding day. We’ll choose a place to go together and you can include kids and pets if they don’t want to be left out!

This is a great opportunity to practice being in front of the camera and working together to capture your story. These will be delivered soon after on an online gallery to share with family and friends which will also house your wedding photos when they are ready.



Your very own story, in your hands. 

I’m a huge fan of printed photographs and albums. I think with the digital age we’ve forgotten the importance of being able to hold a physical printed photograph in our hands. To focus on one image and think back to how we felt when we were in the room on the day it was taken and the ease of being able to pull out that album to look back all those memories.


Printed images last and have a quality that viewing on a screen cannot compete with. The standard of printing has improved dramatically in recent years and made albums exciting again. I’ll show you what can be done in our consultation but these are albums that will stand the test of time and will be passed on to the next generation.

“The negative is the equivalent of the composer’s score, and the print the performance.” 




Steve really captures the emotions of the moments. I would recommend him to anyone looking for beautiful wedding photos of their day.

I’ve tried to answer the most frequently asked questions below. If there’s something else you want to know just get in touch. My phone and email are below or add it to the contact form at the bottom of the page.

Can I still book you for my wedding this year?

Yes! I still have dates free this year. Fill in the contact form at the bottom of the page to see if your date is available. If it’s not I’ll recommend some great alternatives for you.

Where do you cover?

Most weddings I cover are in Lincolnshire but I’ve captured weddings all over the country and a few abroad. I’m happy to go on an adventure. There may be extra costs to cover the travel.

Got insurance? Back up equipment?

Yes and yes. Myself and my equipment is fully insured for working on location. In terms of back up kit I always shoot on two cameras, each with two memory cards so the photos are instantly backed up. I carry spare memory cards, flashes and batteries so you can be sure I’ll capture every moment.

What happens when we want to book?

I’ll send you a link to choose an appointment to meet me at a time to suit you. We’ll have a chat about your wedding and get to know each other.

Next I’ll send you information on the packages and you can select what you would like to book via my online portal. When you’re happy you accept the quote and sign the agreement with a 25% deposit to secure your wedding date.

You’ll then recieve a questionnaire to fill in the important information which I’ll need on the day itself.

If you ever have any questions for me don’t be afraid to ask!

Can you help us find other suppliers?

Certainly. Planning a wedding can be stressful and I’m here to help! I’m always creating new blog posts and reaching out to suppliers to get their tips to pass on to you. I’ll send you some handy guides and blog posts to help you along the way. You can also join my facebook group which has other couples on to share their knowledge with you.

Do you have a payment schedule?

I ask for a 25% deposit when you book and the remaining balance be paid up 14 days from the wedding date. How you spread those payments is up to you. There’s an option to use online payments but if you can use bank transfer this avoids bank fees which are really high!



I would love to hear your story ideas! Register your interest by filling in the form below. We’ll arrange a time to meet and take it from there.
