Wedding Photography Pricing

I love taking wedding photos and I like to remain unobtrusive taking documentary style shots, yet stepping in when necessary to control the family photos, but not overwhelming the whole occasion.   I work in a photojournalistic way for a lot of the wedding day, of course taking into account any ideas from yourselves when we meet as well.  I feel a photographer should be adaptable and not set in one particular 'style' or way of working.   If you go to my INFO link there is an ABOUT section which tells you all about myself and my background.

Every couple is different and I take care to remember that it is their day and not mine!   Sometimes a package needs further tailoring to suit.  However, I have listed below my most popular packages booked by couples in the past. Please fill in my contact form to tell me about your wedding and what you are looking for so I can give you a quote according to your needs if there is something extra you would like to add or these don't fulfill your needs.


All these packages with coverage of 6 hours and above assume no more than 80-90 day time guests.  If there are more then there is sometimes a need to add on a second photographer which is a nice luxury anyway, depending on logistics and situation.  So that can be discussed and tailored accordingly.  PRICES FROM 1ST APRIL 2018 FOR NEW CUSTOMERS.

Discounted photo booth if booked with our wedding photography packages which cover to the speeches (click on PHOTOBOOTH to see our unusual Vintage Photo Wall).

     *Please note package price exclude New Years Eve, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day & certain bank holiday dates where slight tailoring is required.

  • To include everything in Package B, with the coverage as mentioned above plus the following things:
  • An engagement shoot in the woods or a local large park we use, close to High Wycombe, or at your wedding venue if preferred (with mileage charge for any other suggestions by yourselves).  It might be nice to do this in a place that means something to you so I would be willing to travel and tailor something.  We often do portraits with the bluebells or daffodils in Spring or Autumnal photos.  This is to help you get used to some natural shots of the two of you and further explore the kind of photos you would like on your big day.  You receive a complimentary 10" x 8" print of your favourite image from the session, with the choice to buy other images.
  • If you don't want the above portrait then you can choose to have a first year wedding anniversary portrait session instead, with a favourite print.  Either of these sessions would be for an hour approx.
  • An Italian 10-page storybook album (approx. A4 size) designed by myself whilst you are on your honeymoon - it is always lovely to have something in print, to show future generations, and you can upgrade the number of pages/images/size of album etc. if wanted at your viewing session.
  • A large 30" x 20" Canvas of your favourite image from the wedding day
  • The chance to add on another pro photographer for the major part of your day for only £150.00 (usual price £250.00) - they would cover from the ceremony to the speeches.  This way you would have differing angles (from the back of the ceremony and the front for instance), plus even more natural photos of you and your guests as a compliment to the main photos.  If you would like a lady photographer to take the 'bridal prep' photos that can be arranged for a further £25.00.  One photographer would start with the Bride and the other with the Groom, with some last minute shots of the Groom 'button holes', special cufflinks, socks and anything else he would like photographed.
  • A chance to book our Vintage Photo Wall (alternative photobooth service), plain white backdrop if preferred, or even using the venue walls and backgrounds (at a reduced price when booked with this package) - we can do a minimum 2 hrs as an add-on for evening reception entertainment, at a discounted rate of £200.00.  Please contact me to find out what is provided for this and upgrades available if you would like a guest book and more time for instance.

TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!  It is always tricky, with so many photographers to choose from, to know who you are going to be happy with on your special day.  In the video below I have an offer for a Valentines Day voucher (which has now passed of course) but this may be the perfect opportunity for you to purchase a pre-wedding or engagement shoot initially, as it is the same cost. It will help you decide, with no obligation, if you would like to book me as your wedding photographer.

A pre-wedding or engagement shoot is nice to have.  Have a look at the underlined link for more examples of past couples.

If you wanted some added evening entertainment, my Vintage Photo Wall always goes down well.  It is my photo booth hire alterntaive.   Props are provided and you can see examples of it on my Facebook page and on my Vintage Photo Booth page.  (FACEBOOK PAGE: www.facebook.com/AndrewGleedPhotography).  Please contact me for a quote - it can be booked on its own if availability.

I use the wonderful Graphistudio Italian albums from Italy and my assistant, Jackie, and I just love designing the albums.  Below is a video of a couple of my clients' albums, bespoke designed by us to your particular taste, with many different covers and paper finishes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

TESTIMONIAL FROM A WEDDING AT THE COMPLEAT ANGLER (Mark & Janette):

"My family and myself have used Andrew for three different occasions over the years. My parents wedding anniversary, my brother's wedding and my wedding at the Compleat Angler December last Year. 
 
I had a pre-wedding photo session arranged at the venue with Andrew about a month before to have photos done in various locations within the grounds and in the hotel, as I wanted to optimise the photographic opportunities on the Wedding day. Andrew listened to our requirements and made professional  constructive suggestions backed by photo samples that were taken at the venue for previous weddings. 


Nothing was ever a problem for Andrew, I felt that I was very demanding of his services as I had so many questions and requirements, yet this was never an issue. The quality of his work is outstanding, his work rate on the day was amazing and didn't go unnoticed by my family. He works well in organising people on the day to ensure all photos are captured. Everything we asked of him was achieved and went beyond our expectations. 
 
We were given full control with our choices with the post processing of the album and even what photos to upload to view on his client area of his website for the rest of the wedding party and friends to view. 
 
In summary, I cannot recommend Andrew Gleed enough. I'm am so glad we booked him for our wedding and I will always book him in the future. 
 
With the friendly professional service he provides, and the additional hours he puts in during post processing of the photos and album cannot be over looked, as some other photographers don't offer as much post processing time. 
 
The fact my family and myself have booked Andrew on the three Occassions for really important family occasions is a great testimony that speaks for itself."

PHOTOFILMS

 
I offer an additional service so you can have some sound from your wedding.  I have all the knowledge and equipment necessary to mic up the Groom for the service, which will pick up the vows etc. in church, or at your venue, also covering the sound from the speeches.  I then select a lot of the photos from the wedding, to really tell the story of the day, sometimes changing them to black and white specifically for the Photofilm, if it suits the photo I am choosing, then set it to some subtle background music.  I play various sections of the sound from the ceremony and speeches over some of the images, which creates a really poignant mini film.
 
This is supplied on file, along with all the sound recorded for you to keep as well, so you can play the Photofilm on your PC, tablet or smart phone.  If you book an appointment with me to see my work I can show several examples.  The film tends to be 7-8 minutes in length with a mini video clip if wanted.  The example shown below is an upgrade with quite a few video clips but most Photofilms are mainly stills.  You would need to book 2 pro photographers for your wedding photography (the second photographer to be working at least from the ceremony to the end of the speeches).   This then allows me time to 'mic' up the relevant people (or take a couple of mini video clips), whilst my other photographer keeps taking photos in the meantime.   You can have a Photofilm instead of an album, or as an additional product.
 
This Photofilm was a wedding at the wonderful Stoke Park:
