Wedding Photography & Wedding Photographers
in Devon & Cornwall

If you’re anything like most brides, your wedding day will fly by all too quickly and the best way of reliving it in the months and years to come will be through your photographs and/or your video.

Though lots of your friends and family will take pictures on the day, it’s always a worthwhile investment to book a professional photographer for shots you can look back on with pleasure.

Choosing your photographer

Base your selection on whether you like the kind of work your photographer does. Visit a selection and ask to see examples of their work from recent weddings. Notice how the photographer has chosen his settings and make sure there’s a mixture of different types of shots. If the firm you visit employs several photographers, find out who has taken the pictures you like best and make sure you book that specific photographer for your day – and find out what happens if that photographer is suddenly not available. Decide whether you want formally posed shots, or whether you would like the photographer to take informal pictures as they happen. Black and white photographs are now as popular as colour so find out whether your photographer will shoot in black and white film or turn colour pictures into black and white afterwards. Ask whether proofs will be available at the reception. Your photographer may well know the church and reception venue you have chosen, but if he doesn’t check he will visit both before the day so he can choose the best locations.

Make sure you get a written quotation which specifies exactly how many photographs will be taken, at what points during the day and how much extra prints will cost.
If you want photographs taken in church, check that your vicar or priest is happy for this to happen and at what points during the service.

The video

Much the same advice applies to choosing a videographer as to choosing a photographer.
Make sure you see samples of recent work, make sure the videographer you get is the one whose work you like best. Again check with the vicar or priest first whether he is prepared to give permission for filming during the ceremony.

‘My goal with photography,’ says Jake, ‘is to capture the most natural moments possible. I want to make camera-shy clients feel like they can ‘werk it’.

‘Wedding photography can seem really expensive. However, you are not only paying your photographer for the hours that they spend at your wedding, but also all of the hours afterwards spent going through the thousands and thousands of photos taken, whittling them down and editing them. Pricing usually reflects the skill, creativity and experience of the photographer as well as their attention to detail.

‘Your wedding photographer is worth the investment, as the photos will end up being a key memory of your day which last a lifetime.’

Leo has been a professional photographer for over 25 years and has lectured in Fashion Photography at Falmouth University, while pursuing his passion for wedding photography.

‘My methodology for weddings is simple,’ he says. ‘I won’t get in your way. Therefore, I will let the day flow and document the moments that happen spontaneously. I won’t ask you or your guests to pose. Those laughs, tears of joy, hugs, kisses, confetti throwing, champagne-cork popping, cake cutting, first dancing, register signing, saying I doing, welly wanging … capturing these moments in time is what I love to do and it gives me a sense of fulfilment that can’t be matched.’

Leo also loves to travel and is available to photograph weddings or elopements anywhere and everywhere all over the world. ‘Shout and I’m there,’ he says!

A South West Wedding Award winner for the past three years, Louise Richey absolutely adores her job and makes every effort to get out and about when I have some free time to take pictures and experiment with different types of photography.

Her wedding style is classed largely as reportage as she likes to capture the moments of your day as they happen, but she will also capture those important moments where a little pre-organisation will make the difference and give you those all important ‘mantlepiece’ shots. Her belief is that the best shots come from a strong client-photographer relationship and she will strive to build that with you from your first meeting to ensure you will be happy with your photos on the day. Her aim is to capture your memories in a relaxed and personal way.
