Elegant & Natural Wedding Photographer - Solihull

 by Emma Lowe

In a world which seems to be full with wedding photographers, finding the perfect match is about more than just skill—it’s about style, quality, personality, and that special connection.

Hey there, I’m Emma Lowe, an experienced wedding photographer based in the Midlands. While I primarily work across local venues, I’m also known to dash across the country for special requests and referrals.

My approach? I aim for natural and elegant photography that reflects your memories as if time stood still. I steer clear of overly staged or heavily edited shots, preferring to capture the essence of your day authentically. Of course, I still believe in those classic, posed shots that will shine in your wedding album or on your wall.

I like to describe my style as ‘adaptable and dynamic’. I change myself and my photography to your needs—whether that means quietly snapping stunning shots in stealth mode or taking charge to wrangle a lively group.

But perhaps what matters most is the personal connection. You’ll find that I’m not only skilled behind the camera, but also lovely, fun, and light-hearted. I’ll blend right in with your wedding party, making sure everyone feels comfortable and at ease.

Book & Secure YOur Date

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

During any given month, I typically have several weddings, sometimes even in the same week or weekend. Therefore, it’s crucial to secure my services early for your Big Day. You can do this by selecting your package and paying a non-refundable deposit of 25%. Most couples book during the early stages of their planning, usually 6-18 months before their Big Day. However, I’ve also accommodated last-minute bookings as well as bookings made two years in advance by 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 both you and your partner, with so many details 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 either in person at my home studio or via video link for your convenience.

During these relaxed sessions, we’ll have the opportunity to get to know each other better. I want to hear all about how you met each other and what you envision for your wedding photography and products.

We’ll cover various topics including your budget, guest count, venue options (if known), photography style preferences, day-of plans, whether you have a wedding coordinator, the wedding 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 try to keep my Wedding Photographer pricing simple, with 5 main packages designed to cater for varying requirements. They are predominantly based on my time, and you can view my pricing here

If you have specific preferences, please feel free to reach out to discuss your needs. My wedding photography packages are flexible and can be tailored to suit you, as everyone’s requirements are unique. This includes options to add extra time or venues.

On the day of the event, it’s common to extend coverage, and I’m happy to accommodate this at my hourly rate whenever possible.

I understand weddings can be costly, so I strive to keep my prices competitive while delivering high-quality products, despite being in high demand and often fully booked.

If you need a custom package, additional services, or advice on saving costs, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m here to help!

Number of Venues

GETTING READY TO THE EVENING EVENT .....

My Wedding Packages are structured around time to ensure I capture every moment of your special day, from the preparations to the party! This includes getting ready, guest arrivals, the Ceremony/Register, Wedding Breakfast/Meal, Cake cutting, formal photographs, and the party atmosphere.

I also offer packages for couples who only need specific photographs within a shorter time frame. Keep in mind that if we need to move between venues, there might be delays due to traffic or unforeseen obstacles. Let’s coordinate timings to allow enough time for transitions. If necessary, we can arrange parking or transportation to ensure smooth transitions throughout the day. Let’s work together to make your day seamless.

Client BumPing

Your Booking Is SEcured .....

One of the challenges for Couples is getting ‘bumped’, by photographers when higher value bookings come in on your booked date. T

his is not a professional practice and you can rest assured, I will honour your booking and your date is secured, and further to that, unless due to serious illness or emergency it will always be myself attending. 

Having rescued a number of couples at last minute who lost their photographers, this is something I feel somewhat passion about!

Wedding Photography - Payment OPTIONS

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

Payment in full is due 30 days prior to your wedding day and is non-refundable. To secure your booking date, a non-refundable deposit of 25% is required.

Many couples opt for a standing order payment plan to spread the costs leading up to the 30-day mark or choose to pay in stages at their convenience. Alternatively, some couples prefer to settle the remaining balance of 75% in one final payment.

The primary method of payment is through BACs (bank to bank transfer), although PayPal and credit card payments via PayPal are also accepted.

Failure to make full payments on time may result in the loss of your booking.

Wedding Photography - Changing packages

Flexibility.....

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

However, I’ll always do my best to be flexible and add additional time if possible. Once booked, you can’t decrease your package, but feel free to discuss any concerns or changing requirements with me. I’m here to help, so please reach out to discuss your needs and any issues you may have.

Managing Your Photography on the Big Day

DiscreetLY UNSEEN or Taking Charge ......

Every couple has their own preferences when it comes to wedding photography. Some prefer me to take charge, planning the photography style and managing the shots as I see fit, while being relaxed during the editing process afterward. Others have clear ideas about the style and scenes they want captured.

I’m flexible and happy to accommodate either approach, or find a middle ground if necessary.

On the wedding day, most couples prefer a balance. I can discreetly move about capturing moments largely unseen, gently directing family and groups for main photographs. Alternatively, I can switch to “crowd management” mode, effectively arranging people without being bossy or intrusive. I’m comfortable in either mode, occasionally taking charge to ensure you get the photos you requested based on my experience.

EDITING TIME & EDITING INCLUDED

ThE MAgic Software ....

After your wedding day, your photos will undergo careful review, filtering, and preparation before being presented to you via a secure digital portal. All images will have watermarks for security purposes. This setup allows you to leisurely review your photos alone or with loved ones through the secure digital portal. Depending on your package, you’ll have the opportunity to select your favorite images.

The chosen photos will undergo light editing and final touches as needed (advanced editing is excluded). Light editing and final touches include cropping, lighting adjustments, color changes, minor skin and hair adjustments, and object removal to enhance the sharpness of the images.

Please allow between 4-10 weeks for the editing process. However, this timeframe can be expedited upon request and depends on how promptly you review and select your images. All images will remain watermarked and will not be released until full payment is received, which is standard practice in the industry.

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

If you’re interested in having your photographs in a physical album or framed prints, please let me know, and I can provide you with a quote.

Full USB, AlBUMS & PRINTING

ShowcasING YOUR sTUNNING IMAGES ....

If you choose to have all your images on a USB later, the standard charge is £400. These images will only undergo light touching and cropping.

If you want to add albums, frames, or prints to your package or after your Wedding Day, arrangements can be made.

It’s common for couples to review their photographs and decide to customize their 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.
