VIDEOGRAPHER

Ruth also runs her own wedding videography business so while it’s always myself (Oliver) as the primary photographer, you will often find us working together on the wedding day either as 2 photographers or as a photo/video team. Please ask about prices and availability or visit her website at www.biglittlefims.co.uk

Here’s a sample video from a wedding at Old Down Manor:

ENGAGEMENT SHOOT

An engagement or pre-wedding shoot can be a great warm-up and a good way for us to get to know each other before the wedding day. Plus you’ll get some gorgeous images to display around your home.

There is no additional purchase necessary as you will receive the full set of high-resolution digital images (approx 30-40 images) via a download link, normally within 10 working days.

The best light tends to be at the end of the day so I normally suggest arranging your shoot to start 2hrs before sunset. Choose your favourite Cardiff location or ask about travel charges for anywhere further afield. Prices are exclusive to current wedding clients only. 

Midweek shoot £195

Saturday shoot £250

QUESTIONS

how do you describe your style?

In a word ‘documentary’, which basically means there is less emphasis on posing or controlling the day, and more on telling the story more candidly as it happens.

I’m most interested in capturing your relationships and personal connections – the emotion and atmosphere of the day. And if there is laughter I’m all over it – that’s definitely my thing because I really think you will want to look back and see everyone enjoying themselves on your wedding day.

I want to make beautiful, heartwarming photographs of you and your loved ones, but it’s more than that – I don’t just want you to remember how things looked, I want you to remember how it felt. How you felt when you married your best friend, and how your guests felt when they came to celebrate with you.

what about group photos?

Absolutely! Not a wedding goes by without one or two group shots and we can include the main players in around 5-7 groups which shouldn’t take more than 20mins. If you want lots more than this then there are probably more suitable photographers out there for you.

I normally suggest nominating 1 or 2 of your friends or family members to help round people up. This can really help to save time and make things run smoothly for you.

WE'D LOVE SOME SHOTS OF JUST THE 2 OF US, IS THAT OK?

Yes, definitely! We’ll normally have a wander around the venue to find the most scenic locations and I’ll keep an eye out for that gorgeous light so we can make a few creative images that you’ll want to hang on your wall. We’ll keep it fairly brief though (around 20mins) so we can all get back to the action!

CAN YOU PHOTOGRAPH BOTH OF US GETTING READY?

If you’re both getting ready at the same venue then yes, I definitely can. But this is rare so I’ll normally spend my time with the bride and leave early enough to arrive at the venue 30mins before the ceremony. I class this as my time with the boys.

If it’s really important that you have getting ready photos of both of you, please ask about Ruth’s availability as a second-shooter.

SO WE GET BOTH COLOUR & BLACK AND WHITE VERSIONS?

You sure do! I think it’s important that you have every image in colour, but I personally love monochrome so I provide a duplicate set of images that have all been converted to black and white too. So you get 2 sets of images and you don’t have to worry that you can’t see the colour of the bridesmaids dresses in one of your favourite photos!

when will we receive our photos?

Normally 4-6 weeks is a good estimate. Sometimes much sooner in the winter and sometimes a tiny bit longer at the end of a busy summer season. Your photos will be with you for life so I’d prefer not to rush the editing process.

ARE YOU INSURED?

Absolutely. I have Professional Indemnity and Public Liability and I’m more than happy to send a copy to your venue should they need it.

HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?

I travel all over the UK and there is no extra charge for weddings in Wales or England. For weddings further afield you’d need to consider travel and accommodation expenses but there is nowhere I won’t go – I love shooting in new venues so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re planning a destination wedding.

BOOK
