Happy New Year & my 2012 Pricing

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

I’m so excited for 2012 to kick in, the weddings I’m going to be working at get me so excited (and hopefully a few more will let me be part of their day.. :p ) and for whatever else the coming months may bring. Fingers crossed I’ll be finishing my MA and graduating at the end of the year, David will be starting his, and we may even be moving house (4th time in 3 years, I know, we must be mental), depending on circumstances.

Something I’ve unavoidably had to give a lot of thought to is my pricing. I have kept my prices as low as possible since I began over a year ago, mainly to build up my portfolio and experience; and now feel I know my niche, target market and the direction I want my photography to go in. I finally feel ready to take my humble little business to where I want it to go.

After breaking down my own expenses, including how long I spend taking the pictures and the time it takes to process them, I have reluctantly decided to overhaul my pricing and packages available.

So here goes..

______________________________________

Weddings

I will no longer be doing half day wedding coverage, only full day. Full day coverage will cover what it always did; capturing the day between bridal preparations and disco dancing (usually around 8 hours). You will still receive all finished photographs (at least 150) on disk with permission to print from and share, and I will still provide albums and prints as add-ons to the existing package. I will be compiling a ‘Supplier Love’ list within a welcome pack with my personal recommendations and favourites of all the suppliers I have worked with and admired since I began. My new full-day package will be £695 (including travel within 50 miles).

I know I have bookings in for next year already, and obviously won’t be altering anything for brides and grooms who have already booked.

If your wedding is abroad or further afield I will be more than willing to negotiate, so don’t discount me for being based ‘up North’!

Couple and Family Shoots

The shoots will be conducted in the same way as they always have, an hour or so in a location of your choice; getting some pictures of you and your beloved, your kiddy-winks, babies, families, etc etc, and receiving a disk of images (at least 50) with permission to print and share. I will still provide add-ons as I always have. The new pricing for these shoots will be £65.

Commercial Shoots

This type of work will have to be discussed first, I’ve done commercial shoots from 2 hours long to 6-7, so it really depends on what is required. Please get in touch to discuss. As with every type of work I do, you would receive a disk of all images with permission to print and share.

Add-ons

Film camera package – £50

{For the film package I will also capture your day using instant, lomography and 35mm film cameras as well as on digital, you should receive at least 40 prints from this add-on. Get in touch for more details.}

Classic Linen-cover Album (12″x12″) – £130

Parent Album (8″x10″) – £75

Canvas & Print prices on request
