Unlike conventional signing frames, this is made up after your wedding. Your guest's messages are copied from your guest book, wedding cards etc. and superimposed over your favourite wedding image. Colours can be changed to match your wedding theme. Supplied in your choice of frame or as a canvas.
All images are selectively retouched by hand to show them at their very best before printing, framing or made into a canvas wrap. Many options available to suit your style and décor.

The simple answer is, "As many as I take". I don't like to limit the amount of photographs as I want to feel free to record your day in in full without restriction.
Many photographers take months to process wedding pictures, I usually have them fully processed and ready to view within a week.
Usually just me, but I'm able to bring in other qualified photographers if required. Working alone ensures that I remain unubtrusive and more able to capture natural images as they happen without assistants, second shooters and their equipment getting into the background. I believe your photographs should tell the story of your day without intrusion.
Most weddings are in North Yorkshire and the Tees Valley but I've often travelled to Cumbria, York, Durham, Newcastle and Scotland. There may be a small charge to cover expenses for traveling more than 40 miles from Northallerton.
Simple. I switch to another one! As well as several backup cameras, I carry backups for pretty much everything else too. The cameras I use store images on two memory cards, so even if one fails, there's still a contingency.
Yes, unlike many photographers, I'm highly qualified and very skilled in image manipulation. All the images you receive after your wedding are processed to ensure they look natural and you are able to relive your day in every detail and see everything as it was captured. Further processing, such as opening eyes, adding confetti, removing tattoos, vignetting, black and white conversions etc. is all available and is usually included in the price of albums, prints and wall art.
Probably. I love to experiment and try new ideas and I'm completely open to suggestions, in fact it's important that I get to know what you like and don't like. Many wedding photographs used in the media are staged using models, special constructed sets which wouldn't be practical to set up at a real wedding.
Firstly it would have to be something very serious that prevent me from making it to your wedding. If such an event occurred I have several backup plans that would help to ensure that your wedding is covered. I'm a member of a local network of other professional wedding photographers that have agreed to cover for each other in an emergency. I'm also a member of both the British Institute of Professional Photographers (BIPP) and the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP). Both BIPP and the SWPP would help find a replacement.
Almost but not quite. You will be licensed to use the images pretty much as you wish. The only restriction is that I ask that you not to use them comercially without checking with me first. This is because I'd like to ensure any images displayed publically look their very best. If you would like me to send any images to your other wedding suppliers or to the local paper, just let me know and I would be happy to arrange this.
Yes, as an Associate of the British Institute of Professional Photography (ABIPP), I'm probably one of the most qualified photographers in the area. I'm also an Associate of The Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) and a fully qualified member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP).
Yes, of course! I'm covered for both public liability and professional indemnity. I'd also recommend that you take out wedding insurance, it's inexpensive and maybe a lifeline if something unexpected happens.
It's true, quality wedding photography is expensive. This is because there's a lot more work involved than you might think, most of it going on behind the scenes. Also because, to do it properly requires considerable investment in photography and computer equipment and software and an enormous amount of time training and keeping up to date with it. You'll find many wedding photographers that are cheaper than me, but it's unlikely that you'll find any that offer the same value when it comes to quality and customer service.
If you shop around, you'll find plenty of photographers charging double my prices, this doesn't mean you're getting anything less by booking me. I'm always looking for ways that I can work more efficiently while striving to maintain and improve quality, so that I can pass on savings to you. I'm a true Yorkshire man and have set my prices to what I would expect to pay - exceptional value!
