These days there are so many people with cameras, and it's so tempting to simply rely on them to capture your wedding day for you, only to be totally disappointed with the final results, believe me, ( I'm talking from personal experience).
When I married my wife Shirley, we were young and on a shoestring budget, so we asked my brother in law if he could take our photos for us as he told us he "Knew his way round a camera". We were devastated when we received our photos. Not one was good enough to put on display.
There is no other day more important to you than your wedding day.
So it should be just as important to have good quality images to remember it by.
I choose a style of photography known as reportage. This is where I capture moments from your special day, from a distance, without being too intrusive. I feel this captures people more naturally, showing their real emotions.
I also take the traditional posed shots too, which many people still like in their album.
All packages, (excluding the Bronze package), will include full coverage of your special day, starting at the brides home, (if required), and finishing with the first dance. Leaving you to relax and enjoy the rest of your special day in peace.
On some very rare occasions (depending on the vicar), no photography is allowed during the actual wedding ceremony, (the religious part), but don't worry, if this is the case, posed photographs can be arranged after the ceremony.
If you have any preferences or unusual requests, please feel free to ask.
If you find that the wedding location is unsuitable or unattractive, I will be happy to discuss a more suitable location to take your photographs.
I take between 300 and 600 photographs on average, (depending on the number of guests, and your package choice), giving you plenty of images to choose your favourites from.
You choose the forty main photographs and any extra photographs taken over the agreed amount you may purchase for just £4.50 each, these are £2.00 cheaper than reprints, representing very good value for money.
With my Platinum or Supreme Packages, you receive ALL your images on disc.
Once you have purchased your choice of wedding package, I will upload your chosen forty images to an online album, so that you can share them with family and friends online.
I'm sorry, but I do not just "give" you all the rest on disc, like some people have asked.
The prices are a guide only and are subject to change should you require a different sort of package to those listed.
Winter weddings (November - February) qualify for a 10% discount.
I am willing to travel to anywhere within the UK, but unfortunately I will need to charge a little extra to cover my travel expenses, (on top of the prices advertised) if I need to travel off the Isle of Wight.
I think you will find my prices will still be extremely competitive after this extra cost.
Finally, thank you for your interest in Darren Ford Photography, and should you choose me to photograph your wedding day, I will be in touch nearer the time to discuss your requirements and ideas.
