Elegant & Natural Wedding Photographer - Nottingham

 by Emma Lowe

In a world that seems to have an never ending list of Wedding Photographers to choose from, choosing your Photographer is all about style, quality, persona and sometimes just clicking with a photographer on a personal level. 

Hi, I’m Emma Lowe, I’m an experienced Wedding Photographer, mainly working across venues in the Midlands, that said you’ll also find me zipping up and down the country for special requests and referrals. 

My preference is to capture my bride/s and groom/s with natural and elegant photography, not overly staged, nor overly edited, in essence to mirror your memories as if time truly stood still ….  Equally I’m still a strong believer in capturing a series of more formal / posed couple and family/group photographs, that will take pride of place in your wedding album or pride of place framed and mounted on the wall.

I like to think of my style as ‘adaptable and dynamic’, adjusting myself and my photography to your requirements, whether discreetly capturing your stunning images in stealth mode, or taking charge mode to manage a lively group. 

Perhaps the most important thing, other than the quality of my photography, is your relationship with me as a person. You’ll soon find I’m lovely and I’m told,  good fun and light-hearted, so I’ll fit in with your wedding party.

Book & Secure YOur Date

Get Booked in for your big day .....

During any given month, I often have multiple weddings, sometimes even in the same week or on the same weekend. Therefore, it’s crucial to secure my services early for your Big Day. You can do this by choosing your package and paying a non-refundable deposit of 25%. Most couples book early in their planning stage, typically 6-18 months before their Big Day. However, I’ve also accommodated last-minute bookings as well as bookings made two years in advance from couples eager to secure my services.

Consultation SESSION

A Discovery sessions to plan and talk through your Day .....

This is such an exciting time for you and your partner, with lots to organize!

Join me for a consultation session where we can discuss your wedding photography and the logistics of your Big Day. We can meet in person at my home studio or via video link for your convenience.

These relaxed sessions are an opportunity for us to get to know each other better. I’m eager to learn what you’re looking for in your wedding photographer and products, and of course, I’ll ask all about how you met each other.

During our meeting, we’ll cover various aspects including your budget, guest count, venue (if decided), photography style, day-of plan, whether you have a wedding coordinator, the photography contract, and much more.

Trust me, this will be a relaxed, enjoyable, and straightforward meeting.

WEdding PhotogRapher COSTS & IMAGE PACKAGES

My 2023/24 Pricing .....

I strive to keep my wedding photographer pricing straightforward, offering 5 main packages tailored to different needs. These packages are primarily based on my time, and you can find details on my pricing here.

If you have specific preferences, feel free to reach out to discuss your requirements. My wedding photography packages are flexible and can be customised to create a bespoke package just for you, as everyone’s needs are unique. This includes options like adding extra time or venues.

On the day of the wedding, it’s common to need additional coverage, which I’m happy to provide at my hourly rate, accommodating your needs as best as possible.

I understand that weddings can be expensive, so I aim to keep my costs and product prices competitive while delivering high-quality results, even with my popularity and busy schedule.

Don’t hesitate to talk to me if you need a customised package, extra services, or if you’re looking for ways to save money and need some advice.

Number of Venues

GETTING READY TO THE EVENING EVENT .....

My Wedding Packages are all time based, to cater for couples requiring my services to capture every moment from getting ready, to guests arriving, to the Ceremony / Register, to the Wedding Breakfast / Meal and Cake cutting, to the formal photographs, right through to the party element of your Big Day! 

Equally my packages cater for couples that only require my time to capture specific photographs in a shorter time period. Please be aware, that if moving between venues, I may be held up in traffic or by unforeseen obstacles, so work with me on timings to provide adequate time to move around and if needed reserve parking to aid swift transitions or provide lifts. We’ll work together to aid transitions.

Client BumPing

Your Booking Is SEcured .....

One of the challenges couples face is being ‘bumped’ by photographers when higher value bookings come in for the same date.

Rest assured, I prioritise professionalism and guarantee to honour your booking, securing your date. Additionally, unless due to serious illness or emergency, I will always be the one attending your event.

Having rescued numerous couples who lost their photographers at the last minute, this is something I feel passionately about!

Wedding Photography - Payment OPTIONS

Spreading payments UP TO THE BIG DAY.....

Full payment is required 30 days prior to your Wedding day and is non-refundable.

A non-refundable deposit of 25% is required to secure your booking date.

Many couples set up a standing order as a payment plan to spread the costs running up to 30 days prior, or pay in stages at their convenience. 

Alternatively other couples prefer to settle the remaining balance of 75% in one final payment. 

My main method of receiving payment is via BACs – bank to bank transfer, however, I can accept PayPal and credit cards via PayPal.

If payments are not made in full on time, then your booking may be lost.

Wedding Photography - Changing packages

Flexibility.....

I strive to be as flexible as possible, but I also have other professional and personal commitments. Therefore, I encourage couples to book the time they need to avoid disappointment, as I may not be able to extend the time on your Big Day later.

However, I will do my utmost to accommodate additional time, depending on my availability. Once booked, you cannot decrease your package, but feel free to discuss any concerns with me. I’m here to help, so please reach out to discuss your requirements, changes, or any issues you may have.

Managing Your Photography on the Big Day

DiscreetLY UNSEEN or Taking Charge ......

Every couple has their own unique preferences. Some prefer me to take the lead in planning their wedding photography style, managing the images captured on the day and handling the editing process afterward, while others have clear ideas and specific scenes they want me to capture. I’m flexible and happy to accommodate either approach, or anything in between.

On the wedding day, most couples prefer a balanced approach. I can discreetly move about, capturing moments largely unnoticed, and gently guide family and groups for main photographs. Alternatively, I can switch to “crowd management” mode, effectively directing people without being overbearing. I’m comfortable in either role and will occasionally take charge to ensure you get the photos you’ve requested, drawing on my experience.

EDITING TIME & EDITING INCLUDED

ThE MAgic Software ....

Following your wedding day, your images will be carefully reviewed, filtered, and prepared to be showcased with you through a secure digital portal. All images will bear watermarks for security purposes. This allows you to enjoy reviewing them at your convenience or with loved ones via the secure digital portal. Depending on your package, you’ll have the opportunity to select your favourite images.

The selected images will undergo light editing and final touches as necessary (excluding advanced editing). Light editing and final touches may include cropping, lighting adjustments, color changes, skin and hair adjustments, and minor object removal to enhance the sharpness of your images.

Please allow between 4-10 weeks for your images to be edited, though this can be expedited upon request and depends on your promptness in reviewing and selecting your images. All images will remain watermarked and will not be released until full payment is received, as per industry standards, and editing is completed.

For advanced editing, such as combining two images or significant modifications, this can be discussed and will be charged at £75 per hour due to the complexity of the work. Advanced editing requests are rare.

If you would like your photographs in a physical album or framed prints, please reach out to me for a quote.

Full USB, AlBUMS & PRINTING

ShowcasING YOUR sTUNNING IMAGES ....

If you later decide that you’ll like all your images on a USB, the standard charge is £400. These images will only have light touching and cropping applied.

If you’d like albums, frames and prints adding to your package or after your Wedding Day, this can be arranged. 

It is not uncommon for Couples to view their photographs and wish to amend there options for albums and printing with extras.

SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ....

Yes Absolutely – As a professional wedding photographer I have full insurance cover, and the all important Public Liability Cover which many Wedding Venues insist on viewing before they allow you to work on site. This means that my insurance would trigger if something occurred injuring someone. For example, if someone walked into my camera lens and hurt themselves. It might sound minor but this is important to the wedding venue’s management and for your guests.
Do not worry – If I’m suddenly taken ill or have an emergency, I will do my utmost to organise a high quality replacement. I would only organise a replacement that I knew would capture the most amazing photographs that I will then edit myself. That said, it would be highly unlikely to occur. If within 24 hrs and a replacement couldn’t be organised, then my Partner whom is highly competent behind the camera lens and is often my second photographer would step in. I wouldn’t gladly have him photograph my wedding day if he didn’t have to be waiting for me at the altar. As an ex-Engineer and now a Marketing Director of an industry leading UK company you’d be in good hands should a major disaster occur. So rest assured I have you covered. If something happened to my primary camera or some crucial equipment, then again fear not as I have plenty of spares in short notice or my insurance would simply provide replacements rapidly. Also as a professional, I’m often working with other leading Photographers so we would always help each other out in emergencies. So we are triple covered with spares, insurance and colleagues.
Of course, the website has some photographs covering Weddings and all my other professional shoots. That provides a good impression of my work. Although the website doesn’t show the high resolutions images as they take far too long to load so every image is heavy reduced in quality. I’d love to sit and show you my work in person, so please come and have a coffee at your convenience. I have plenty of hard copy high quality images to show you.
Firstly, I will do everything I can to avoid disruption to your perfect day, whilst safeguarding you, your guests, venue staff and myself. I regularly check the various websites for Government Guidance and Industry Guidelines, which are changing constantly. The following links are useful quick reference sites: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus https://www.the-aop.org/coronavirus-guidance In terms of the how I’m changing my photographer behaviour, its mainly the application of common sense and PPE. So firstly I’ll have my PPE mask and visor, but the most noticeable difference is I may step a few metres away from the groups between photographs were as are before I’d have loitered nearer waiting to capture shots. This doesn’t make a difference, as I merely quickly move in and out as required. In terms of your guests and group shoots, we need to review the up to date guidance for the day but again we’ll apply common sense regarding numbers, family bubbles, if a small group can spread out slightly outdoors etc. As with illness or an emergency, if I was suddenly taken ill I would do my upmost to provide an alternative wedding photographer.

Absolutely you can – normally most of my couples have tailored their package with me in the discovery meet, where we meet to plan and discuss your requirements. So we can add and tweak as you wish.

If you suddenly require extra time on the day unplanned, then I will do my utmost to stay and will discuss the cost at the point as if its only a short period I may not need to charge at all. You won’t be charged unreasonably I assure you. The only time I cannot is if I have personal commitments that cannot be altered at such short notice. I want you day to be perfect so will pull out all the stops to stay on as long as you need.

This is a common question to professional wedding photographers and easily answered, in that the Camera has two cards, so if one fails the other will have a RAW copy. And once home images are immediately loaded to a back up, so there are multiple copies.
Absolutely, but this must be organised via myself as you don’t want two strangers turning up getting in each others way or missing crucial photographs. I have my partner as a second photographer, but often invite other professional wedding photographers I’ve had the pleasure of working with in the past and have a clear plan so we team up seamlessly.
Absolutely – I’m a wedding photographer so I have 1,000s of photos up my sleeve, but you’re in charge throughout, so what you want I’ll do my absolute best to provide. So if you want a series of family shots taken or you’d like to explore the grounds for variety I’ll happily capture these for you.
Typically the editing and processing time is between 4 to 12 weeks depending on the volume of photographs taken and your specific requirements on editing. Remember I’ll typically have 1,000s of photos to review, crop, edit and present, so this does take time.
Any Wedding Albums or Prints or Products will be detailed on your order confirmation and we’ll discuss this in macro detail at our discovery meeting to get this planned.
This depends on your wedding photography package and will be discussed in the discovery meeting together so we get this perfect. Post wedding day, we can review the photographs captured and you can decide if you want extras or other products.
We can work up any solution for you. So if you want all the photographs and you tell me this at the discovery meeting we can factor this into the costs and booking confirmation. Typically this would be on a USB stick and you’d have to specific if you want the edited or unedited, as this involves significant time and costs. If you have purchased all the images, you are provided the licence to reprint these as you wish.
Absolutely – I have a great relationship with my couples and I can put you in direct comms with them (with their permission). They’ll gladly give me the big thumbs up to give you that peace of mind you have a top wedding photographer booked in.
