Our Packages Start at only £899 for full day coverage.
Your wedding/civil partnership presents so many opportunities to ‘tell your story’. So many opportunities to show not just how you look, but to show how you actually feel. That’s where the magic lies. That’s what separates us, as photographers, from the rest of the field.
At Viva Photography, it’s our interpretation of your day's events, our impression of what moments are paramount to you, and our vision of what your final images can be, that makes us that bit different.
Your wedding day is a day that you may well have been dreaming of your whole life - and we want to make it as perfect for you as we can.
Throughout the day we will swiftly organise the necessary formal shots - always keeping the atmosphere relaxed yet vibrant - so everyone can enjoy the occasion. While you concentrate on having a great wedding, we will be keeping an eye trained for all those candid moments that really capture the essence & emotion of your day.
You'll look like a Princess... we'll just make sure that's never forgotten. If you can dream it, we’re happy to help you live that dream.
Our wedding photography packages start at only £499 and we are fully flexible to create a package that balances what you are looking for against your budget. All our wedding packages include a pre-wedding meet to make sure we understand your preferences, your "must have" photos, etc. See below for some sample prices.
Our full day coverage is only £899 and covers from the preparation shots, right through to the dancing.
Please contact us for full details of our packages, to check availability for your big day, or to arrange a face to face chat at a venue of your choice.
We are members of the Royal Photographic Society, so you can be assured of great photos. See some samples here
Some of our Wedding Photography Packages, include luxury albums. Please ask for pricing.
Choosing the Right Photographer for Your Wedding
So how do you choose the right wedding photographer? After all there are a lot of us around, and we seem to offer similar, yet not identical, things. And prices? Prices are hugely variable. So what should you ask to find the right wedding photographer for you?
Wedding Photography Price
OK, you will have a budget, but be prepared to break your budget on your photography. It's the only thing you will have in 10 years time. Not the meal or hotel, but the photographs – consider where this sits in your budget.
Then add in what you want from your photographer:
– A wedding album
– Additional Prints
– Canvas Prints
– A CD/DVD of all images
Wedding Photography Timing
When do you want the photographer to start and finish? It used to be your photographer turned up just before the service, took 12 pictures before you went in, then another 24 group shots outside the church afterwards.
Well it's not like that now, our typical session will start with the bride getting ready in the morning all the way through to the dancing in the evening, so work out which parts you want covered. Remember though, you really want to tell the Story of the DAY – the whole day, not just the service in the middle:
– Bride getting ready
– Groom getting ready
– Guests arriving at service
– The service itself
– Guests after the service
– Cake Cutting
– First Dance
– Evening Fun and Dancing
– Wedding couple portraits
– Family portraits
Wedding Photography Style
No doubt the style now is much more towards the “reportage” or “natural” photography of the wedding day. Our aim is to make sure we get happy, smiling (or emotional) people being natural throughout the day.
But, your family will never forgive you if you do not have the formal group shots – and indeed you will want them in the years to come.
Also, I strongly favor the couple portraits, to feature the two of beaming, grinning and full of love on that special day.
Also, the bridal dress needs some special work to really make it.
So, there has to be an element of formal posing.
You can add into this mix some “Fashion” style posing, or “Art” posing – this may be posed to look casual or look very stylized – but the aim is to create a very “WOW” image, above and beyond your average capture the moment type image.
