documentary wedding photographer - image of bride and groom with fireworks

***Availability update: 2021 is booking up fast, partly due to the pandemic causing lots of 2020 weddings to be postponed to next year, but also because I’m receiving new enquiries as well – please do get in touch as soon as you can if you want me for your day***

As one of the prestigious Rangefinder Magazine’s ’30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography’ in the world, ‘Top 5 Wedding Photojournalists in the UK 2017‘, and winner of ‘Best Reportage Wedding Photographer’ for three years running (SWWA – the only photographer to have ever won three times in a row), my style is totally natural, un-posed and creative – capturing your day unobtrusively and artistically (I talk about my style and wedding approach in much more depth over here.)

Don’t just take my word for it, either; this is what Brides Magazine had to say about me and my style when they included me in their ‘15 Best Wedding Photographers in the UK‘ list:

“Amazing moments are captured with ease through Alan’s lens. If you want emotion to be the main focus of your photos, this is the man to hire. Snapping natural and un-posed shots, Alan blends into the background while capturing candid moments that you’ll truly treasure.” – Brides Magazine.

I cover weddings throughout the UK and Europe (and even further afield if you’d like!), and I offer various packages, depending on how much coverage you would like (as every wedding is completely different).

Prices start at £1999; contact me over here with details of your wedding for my full pricing.

Not sure how much coverage you’ll need? No problem; this is something we can talk about during our initial consultation (I’ve shot nearly 300 weddings now, and so have quite a bit of experience concerning timelines and coverage; more than happy to advise and offer my thoughts!).

Prices start from £1999, and this is what’s included in all packages (contact me over here with details of your wedding for my full pricing):

  • An initial consultation with yourselves to talk about your day in more detail, and just to get to know each other. Of course, this consultation is free of charge, with no obligation whatsoever. This can also be done via a video Skype call, if a physical meeting isn’t possible.
  • Me – Alan Lawcovering your wedding naturally, creatively and artistically. I don’t get anyone else to shoot your day, so you can rest assured it’ll always be me and my unique style. Coverage can begin whenever you wish, and extra hours can also be added to suit your exact requirements.
  • All your images individually edited and enhanced. I don’t ‘bulk edit’ my photos; each and every shot you receive has been given unique attention to ensure optimum quality, in my signature style.
  • Your images (around 800 – 1000+ for 10 hours’ coverage), all at full-resolution and without watermarks – so you can print or use your photos however you wish. I work to get your images to you around 4 weeks after ‘I do’, and am also very happy for you to share your photos on Facebook, of course.
  • A private online gallery, for your guests to view all your photographs, and order prints/photo gifts directly should they wish to.
  • Travel within England included. For European/Worldwide weddings, travel expenses and accommodation will apply.

I can sometimes offer discounts for midweek weddings, too – just contact me to find out more. Fine art albums are available at an extra cost.

I’ve been lucky enough to capture weddings all over the world – including places such as Montenegro, Greece, France, Turkey, Switzerland and more – so if you’re looking for a destination wedding photographer, I’d love to hear from you.

Like to enquire about a potential booking? Just contact me here. With a lot of 2020 weddings being postponed to next year because of the pandemic, as well as new enquiries coming in too, I’m quickly getting booked up for 2021, so definitely recommend getting in touch sooner rather than later if you’re interested in me capturing your day.
