Weddings are one of the most beautiful, memorable days of your life. I’m very passionate about captivating the memories, the laughs, and the all important vows to the best of my ability: so you can look back on your special day anytime you like, without missing a moment. I’d like to describe me as “Not just a Wedding Photographer”, as not only do I photograph and work on other things, but I will also be a Friend, a spare pair of hands, a friendly face, a tissue carrier and personal cheerleader. I try to stay unobtrusive, while maintaining a high quality of work- working together to document your story, on your special day. It’s really important to me as an individual to make sure that you’re happy with your images as I put myself in the shoes of my clients, and comes my attention to detail, and high level of standard: which is why I try to keep my editing style as true-to-life and authentic as possible and discuss any further editing or style choices before we shoot.

When securing the date by paying a deposit, you’ll receive a ’Shot Preference List’ which will help us create a plan of action for the big day, and discuss day plans and timings in more detail. Usually we’ll grab a coffee somewhere for a chat, or schedule a Facetime/Virtual Meeting. You’ll receive correspondence throughout our time together, which will keep you informed, and guide you through the time we share working together.

I understand that every Wedding is uniquely different, and both of my wedding packages ensure my personalised services on your special day. If you have any questions or queries regarding your Wedding, I am more than happy to personalise packages and discuss ideas- so be sure to ask away when reaching out!

Professional, enthusiastic and inconspicuous throughout.

Immediately from our first meeting with Ross, we felt at complete ease and confident in his work. Ross organised a relaxed pre-shoot meeting, taking the time to get to know us and really understand the kind of shoot and pictures we were looking for. His experience and expert eye came to the fore as shared… Read more “Professional, enthusiastic and inconspicuous throughout.”

Ross captured so many amazing moments- even ones that we’d forgotten about.

Ross was our Wedding Photographer in May 2019. He arrived during bridal prep and stayed many hours into the reception in the evening. Ross captured so many amazing moments- even ones that we’d forgotten about. We were over the moon with the quality of the photos and everyone who we have shared them with has… Read more “Ross captured so many amazing moments- even ones that we’d forgotten about.”

The photos are top quality, and we couldn’t recommend Ross enough.

Ross was amazing from start to finish. From the initial contact we had with him, to meeting up with him for the first time: then finalising everything, the big day, and of course- receiving our beautiful photos from him. Very professional, but also made us, especially me, feel at ease. The photos are top quality… Read more “The photos are top quality, and we couldn’t recommend Ross enough.”

Could not recommend Ross more..

He was truly amazing and made everyone feel at ease, in-fact we didn’t know he was even there! From the outset Ross was professional, taking pride in what type of photos we wanted. I wanted to make sure we had photos of everyone, and Ross went above and beyond to make this happen! Our day… Read more “Could not recommend Ross more..”

Full Day Coverage

Before the Big Day:
You’re excited, nervous and no doubt willing the day to go smoothly. You feel prepared, reassured and confident – we’ve used your customised Shot Preference List to create a clear and concise day plan. We’ve discussed what it is you want capturing at length during your Pre-Wedding Consultation, and we have a deep understanding of the type of shots and style you want to achieve. You can’t wait to capture the work and planning that has been in the pipeline for months, and you feel reassured that we will be there throughout the whole day to capture the magic. You’re open minded and ready to ejoy the experience!
Your guests are excited, and so are we!

Morning Preparations:
During your getting ready process, we’ll be photographing the details you may forget before the day is over! We tend to focus less on hung dresses and suits, and more on the emotion and feel for the room. We’ll be capturing those morning-jitters, the laughs, the excitement and the people around you. We’ll be your own little hype team, bringing positive encouragement and to calm any nerves while making your group feel comfortable behind the camera.
When we feel confident that we’ve captured enough of the preparations, we’ll head on over to capture guests arriving at the venue or place of ceremony. This is when we usually get some empty venue shots, welcome drinks and set the scene before the ceremony. We try our best to remain promptual throughout the day, and ensure we’re where we need to be to capture every angle!

Ceremony:
This is it.. the most important moment of the day. We’ll have venue shots in hand, guests arriving, friends and family reunited, arrival drinks and welcomes are in the bag. We’ll have communicated with the registrar and venue to ensure they understand your photo-preferences, and brief your guests upon arrival if needed.
We tend to stay fairly stationary during ceremonys, to remain as non-intrusive as possible, and to not block your guests view! I’ll usually take lead-photographer spot at the front, capturing intimate shots of the couple, focusing moreso on the emotion and facial expressions, usually behind you shooting back towards your guests, or in line with them on front row! We’ll then have a second photographer at the back of the venue, to get those lovely wide shots and to stay agile, moving down the sides of the venue to capture alternative shots. I’ll usually emerge onto the isle to capture the famous ‘kiss shot’ and leaving back down the isle!

Arranged Shots & Allocated Time:
Phew!
The ceremony is over and you’ve been congratulated by your lovely guests and entourage, we’ve taken some shots around the place of marriage, and captured the smiles and conversations with your guests. We’ll have a quick 10 minute break while you and your guests socialise and prepare to be stolen away for the important ‘arranged shots’. We’ll quickly and efficiently work through all of your arranged ‘family photos’ – this is usually the moment I go into ‘public speaking mode’ and call people for photographs as and when we need them. Once you’re both happy, and we’ve ticked off every combination on the list – we’ll steal you away for our allocated time. This is when it will just be yourselves, and our team, capturing those beautiful editorial shots of the two of you. I’ll no doubt have scouted out a few spots around your venue at a prior visit, and will know exactly where to go! We can use this time for more experimental photography, such as double exposures or black and white more ‘creative’ shots.
Allowing an allocated slot for photographs, allow us to remain relaxed, and take our time to create beautiful shots. This has got to be our favourite part of the day; seeing a newly-wed couple alone for the first time, and to capture those conversations, the brief moment of peace away from the Wedding.

After-Ceremony:
Now the fun starts! We’re confident we already have some amazing shots, and now’s the time to enjoy yourselves. We will have captured the venue before and after you’re welcomed into the room. From cake shots to table arrangements; we’ll continue to capture all of the moments and memories after your ceremony. Including the speeches, entertainment and general wedding shinnanigans!
We’ll usually float around the venue and capture lots of atmospheric, shots before the first dance, speeches and cake-cut. We try to capture all of the spontaneous moments you may not see in the moment! Once we’re confident we’ve captured everything and we’ve taken any evening shots such as sparklers or fireworks, we will leave you to enjoy the rest of your evening celebrating!

Covid Cover Included

Here at Ross Andrew Photography we have been observing the Coronavirus situation very carefully, and we are continuing with business as usual, we have taken the following precautions to do our part as a small, independent business:

We understand that during this uncertain, and ever-changing time we live in, that there will be many of you who have been affected by the COVID19 virus. Whether you were getting married abroad, and now you’re starting from scratch, planning a UK wedding.. or if you’ve always planned on getting married in the UK, but now your venue has postponed your big day.. We will be offering all of our clients, both wedding and non-wedding related; fully inclusive COVID19 cover. This means that if your shoot is postponed, you will be entitled to a free amendment, and will not incur any charges or fees for changing the date; and all money paid will be applied to the new date – you will not receive any fees or penalties for changing your wedding or event date. All we request is as much notice as possible, so we can make arrangements where necessary.

As usual, our team continues to keep themselves (and their hands) clean. We will be taking extra care regarding social distancing, shaking hands, and ensuring our Photobooth, and any other kit will be deep cleaned and prepared for your shoot or event.

From everyone working as part of the Ross Andrew Photography Team, we hope you, and your families are all healthy and well and look forward to continuing to provide professional and affordable services across the nation.

Starting out? What should you Photograph?

One of the main questions I get ask from amateur photographers is “What should I photograph?”, and in all honesty, Photography is completely subjective as a creative industry. I’ve seen photos of blank surfaces, and they’re described as artistic. It’s all about finding something you enjoy photographing, and fulfils your purpose; whether that’s a creativeRead more “Starting out? What should you Photograph?”

7 Things NOT to say to a Photographer!

I’d like to think I’ve worked in a range of different environment: from nightclubs and weddings, to art studios and churches.

But along the way, even though 99.9% of my clientele are nothing but polite and friendly- occasionally IRead more “7 Things NOT to say to a Photographer!”
