Capturing those special moments, on one of the most important days of your life, should not be left to chance. This is why people come to West One Photography.
With a blend of West One’s artistic expression, and your personal style, we will set the scene and create a fun-filled day, captured in a relaxed style to give you the dream wedding you have looked forward to.
We can start capturing images at any time – from the excitement of the bridal preparation to the last fading glow of the evening’s emotion – it is only by taking the utmost care during the planning stages, that it is possible to create a beautiful wedding album that will be truly unique.*
Wedding photography prices start from a modest £995 and we can offer a truly bespoke range of wedding albums, hand crafted in Italy, in many unique shapes and sizes. We encourage you to visit our studio to view a selection of wedding albums and discuss the arrangements that would best suit you and your budget.
For assistance on ideas and how to choose the right package for you, contact us now on 07956 120 994 or use our form on the contact page.
We offer a full consultation service, prior to your wedding day, where we discuss the type of photography you would like and the situations that may be encountered:
- The level of organisational input you require – for example, arranging groups
- Candid and posed shots
- The various locations you will be able to use at your chosen venue
- Lighting and weather conditions – planning for any eventuality
West One Photography likes to visit your venue, prior to your wedding day, so that you can be offered a list of locations that will most enhance your photographs.
We aim to be unobtrusive for much of the time, but will step in to take control of the moments where the need for pre-arranged image capture is, or has been, requested. We will always try to use backgrounds that are in-keeping with the wedding day and to capture the ambience that you have discussed with us.
Wedding photography is not just about having a camera. It is important to have an eye for detail, composition, and those special, priceless moments. As famous French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson once said…
“To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.”
So the need for professionalism becomes of paramount importance. It is not simply a case of pressing the camera button lots of times and assuming there will be one good picture in there somewhere.
These days, people often ask their friends and relatives to take photographs, and this is nice to have as a back-up to the occasion. Some wedding parties even place shared cameras on reception tables too. However, whilst these may produce some fun images for social media, they are probably not going to result in the kind of photographs you want to see in your wedding album and you might find that some people or crucial event happenings are missing!
At West One Photography, we are mindful that photography is no longer the preserve of professional photographers – these days, everyone has access to a camera. But remember what fashion photographer David Bailey once said:
“The first half of the 20th century belongs to Picasso and the second half is about photography. They said digital would kill photography because everyone can do it, but they said that about the box brownie in 1885 when it came out. It makes photography interesting because everyone thinks they can take a picture.” – David Bailey
West One Photography have over the years, captured a broad spectrum of images and wedding styles, in a variety of locations around the world, from castles and venues with lakes, to country houses and wild seashores with crashing waves.
You want your day to be happy and flowing, without having to think about everything ‘behind the scenes’ and this includes the photography. Employ us with confidence and enjoy your special time together.
