Information & Pricing
Picturistic combines an unobtrusive reportage style with contemporary portraiture, and also traditional photographs such as family groups.
Each wedding is unique and there is no set formula. Our photography will be totally designed around your day and your particular requirements. We will discuss all those requirements in detail at our pre-wedding meeting and then confirm to you in writing what has been agreed prior to the big day.
We will meet with you in your home or wherever you feel most comfortable to go through in detail what will happen on the day. Here we can discuss your specific requirements and get a feel for, and an understanding of, just how you would like the day to be recorded. Please remember this is your day and we will do our utmost to make it a day to remember. We suggest that this meeting takes place approximately 2 to 4 weeks before the big day.
Coverage of your Day:
At Picturistic we offer a complete wedding package tailored to your own personal preferences.
The day will be recorded as it happens, beginning with the bridal preparations capturing both formal and informal images of the Bride and her attendants. If possible, one of our photographers will also try to visit the wedding venue prior to the ceremony to capture important details such as flowers and table settings.
Moving through the day, photos of guests arriving at the ceremony together with the Groom, his friends and family will also be taken prior to the Bride's arrival. The Bride's arrival is of paramount importance and we will be in attendance to capture every moment. Coverage of the ceremony, if permitted, is followed by photographs of the Bride and Groom signing the register.
Informal reportage style photos of the Bride and Groom greeting and mingling with their guests follows at the reception. At this point more traditional style photos of family groups and friends can be taken.
Coverage of the day continues through the reception, speeches, cutting of the cake and into the evening, up to and including the first dance.
Should you wish, in the evening we can also provide a portable studio*, which includes full professional studio lighting & backdrop for guests and family to be able to have formal and informal photos taken, for a period of two hours during the evening. This is a one off cost of £200 and guests will be able to view and purchase prints online from our website. *This service is subject to sufficient space being available at the reception venue to accommodate the studio lighting and equipment.
Our prices start at a basic fee of £850 for complete coverage of your day.
This includes the following:
Two photographers in attendance for the day.
Minimum of 200 edited photos uploaded to your own private online gallery where you and your family and friends can purchase prints, canvasses etc.
Bridal preparation before ceremony.
Groom and guests at venue.
Formal portraits of Bride & Groom, bridesmaids, parents etc.
Attendance, up to and including the first dance.
Payment & Deposit:
A £200 deposit is required upon booking our photographers which is fully refundable if you change your mind within 7 days for whatever reason. The outstanding balance of £650 is due 14 days prior to the wedding. In case of cancellation at this stage, we fully understand that this is normally due to unforeseen circumstances; therefore we would endeavour to fill your date with another wedding and refund the full amount, less deposit. If it is not possible to fill your date with another wedding we will refund the full amount less deposit plus a small administration charge of £50.00.
