Littlewing Photos Wedding Photography

Scott & Nina @ Castelnau des Fieumarcon, September 2018

If you are looking for an enthusiastic, friendly photographer for your wedding or event, a photographer who will work hard, tread carefully, who will put you, your friends and family at ease, who will keep a calm head, who will capture those little moments that can go by unnoticed then please get in touch with me either via the Contact page or Facebook, Instagram, Twitter (select the icon at the bottom of the page) to discuss your requirements no matter what they are or where you live. I am very willing to travel.

Emma & Andy, Chateau de Panisseau, June 2019

What do you get from Littlewing Photos Wedding Photography?

Included within my cost for photographing the day, I will, where possible, meet with you some months before the wedding to get to know you a little better and to take a few photos. Hopefully, I will put you at ease and you will be more relaxed when I start photographing you on the day of your wedding.

I will arrive at least 2-3 hours before the ceremony and will begin work immediately capturing all the preparations.

Only once the dancing has started and I feel that I have fully captured the party atmosphere will I leave. If the conditions are right, I will try and photograph the venue under starlight.

A short break to eat is the only time that I will put down my camera during the day. I will take this short break during the meal - however, if you wish me to continue to photograph during the meal then of course I will do it. It is your day.

Within 48 hours (and subject to work load), I will have released around 100 images via my website Weddings page.

Once I have edited all of the photos (you should expect to receive around 400), I will separate the photos into albums of Bride Preparation , Groom preparation, Ceremony, Cocktails, Meal, Party - or albums relevant to your day - and put them onto a dedicated page. This can be password protected. I will send via email, downloadable links to each album which I will also send to you on a USB key.

Equipment - I will bring three cameras (using two with another spare), at least 10 memory cards, tripods, flash equipment, batteries, flash stands etc. Should I bring a second shooter there will be at least another one or two cameras. Every image that I shoot is automatically saved on both cards within the camera.

Insurance - I have professional insurance cover with AXA

At no extra cost and if availability permits, I will bring a second photographer - Landie Corbett of Green Lotus Photography

Not included in my day rate

Should you require prints or a wedding album.

If you would like me to photograph the day before or following the wedding.

Your suggestions and ideas

As this is your day, I will try and incorporate as many of your suggestions and ideas as possible. Bear in mind that these ideas will be interpreted into my style but hopefully I will capture exactly what you had in mind.

What I need from you

Timings - if you can supply me with your itinerary (see example Wedding Itinerary ) such as hairdresser, make up, ceremony, cocktails, meal etc., and also, should you wish to have group photos, a list of which groups. It would make everyones’ life easier on the day and be more efficient if one of the bridesmaids and groomsmen could help round up the people required for the group shots. My aim is to get these done as quickly as possible so that you can get back to enjoying your day.

Suppliers I would happily recommend

Celebrants - UK & France - Lisa Lister - Lisa officiated at both weddings where I was the photographer. She is the ultimate celebrant.

Sandie Smith of English Celebrant in France - fantastic celebrant. Extremely calm and experienced and with a great sense of humour.

Venues, South West France - Castelnau des Fieumarcon , Chateau de Puissentut, Chateau Engalin, Chateau de Lisse , La Cannonerie , Chateau de Panisseau, Chateau de Malliac

Wedding Planners - La Boutique Event (Anneli, Nick & Abby gave me the opportunity to try wedding photography and I love them for it), Chatelaine Events, The Impeccable Pear
