Ewa & Jamie are a wonderful and loving couple who i first met in 2019, we had been due to photograph their wedding in early 2020 but sadly its had to be postponed 3 times now. 

So to finally get to do their pre-wedding shoot i was over the moon!! We chose to go to a local parkland in Reading where there was lakes, rivers and lots of woodland. The day was a very warm one with the sun beaming down on us. We started in a wooded area very close to the carpark and we then moved around the large lakes finding areas to create the images for the couple.


We headed around to the far end of the woodland and used the bridge that crosses the river Loddon, and being a busy parkland we did have to wait for people to cross the bridge before we could get the shots.

Just over the bridge is a bit of meadow area thats had the lovely yellow flowers which made a for some great foreground and background colour.Both Ewa and Jamie were very comfortable in front of the camera which makes my job so much easier even though Jamie did say at the end of the shoot that he found it much easier than he thought it was going to be.

SULHAM WOODS PET PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2020/9/sulham-woods-pet-photography READING WOODLAND PET PHOTOGRAPHY | SULHAM WOODS

DOG PORTRAIT SESSION

 

recently had the great chance to photograph the handsome Marley at the local woodland where his owner Carly takes him for his walks. Marley is a young Energetic working cocker spaniel and even though he is young he was so wonderfully behaved.

We started off walking a short distance and used the main path way for the first image and found a fallen tree where we managed to get so lovely images of him. 

Again as we walked i came across a tree stump that suited the image that i wanted to get and with a bag of doggy treats we managed to get Marley to sit still for enough time to get the shot.

As you walk around Sulham Woods you will always find little areas that suit a particular image, we found fallen trees, tree stumps, gravel pathways and of course areas with long grass which all make for great images.

The light on the day was very dull to start with but the sun did start to poke its head through the trees, i looked for areas within the woods where there would be little pockets of light on to Marley and gave a nice little Haze to some of the images.

READING PET PHOTOGRAPHY | DINTON PASTURES 

PET PORTRAIT SESSION

Before the lockdown i had run a competition on my faceBook page and the competition was a huge success with many people entering to win the top prize.

The winners were announced as Emma And Matt and they chose to have their photo session done at the wonderful

Dinton Pastures in Hurst near Twyford Berkshire.

 

 

The couple brought along their two amazing rescue dogs Skylar and Harley. Both dogs were amazing and very well behaved and i got some lovely images of them both. We walked around the park looking for a few different areas to photograph them both. There is a huge range of areas around the park including secluded areas,gravel paths,2 lakes, a river and an old golf course.

 

 

We worked our way around to an area of woodland where the two dogs could feel at ease as there weren't to many people walking past. We then made our way around to the where a bridge crosses the river and got a few more there before heading further around the lake to a more grassy area.

I have to say these to dogs were wonderful and a pleasure to photograph.

Hannah & Bulents Fawley Hill Wedding https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/hannah-bulents-fawley-hill-wedding  

FAWLEY HILL TIPI WEDDING - HANNAH & BULENT

This was to be my first time photographing at Fawley Hill and what can i say about this unique venue except WOW!! I had never seen anything like it before with its working railway line and station. There is also an animal sanctuary so you will see peacocks wandering around also you hear the sounds of alpacas and many more animals.

The day started with the sun shining and everybody was looking happy and smiling, Then the rain arrived just as the bride was driven down the track to the awaiting groom who was stood on the end of the train Carraige ( yes they got married on the train) while the guest stood on the track in front. Then we had hailstones, thunder and lightning and then bright sunshine again. The British weather!!!

Once the service was over we headed out to get some shots around the venue while the guest were driven up to the field where there were these wonderful tipis set up for the evening meal and dancing. Outside the tipi's are these Colombs which i believe came from part of the London station of St Pancras. This was a wedding with a difference, but it was a wonderful and unique experience for me. So if you are looking for that venue that is slightly different from the rest then you must check out Fawley Hill.

Here are a few images from the day.

Ryan & Zoe's Beaumont House Wedding https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/ryan-zoes-beaumont-house-wedding BEAUMONT HOUSE - WINTER WEDDING

RYAN & ZOE

Earlier this year i was back at beaumont house for the wedding of Ryan & Zoe, it had been a while since i had photographed there. The venue had been renovated nicely with a much better colour scheme. The day started with zoe getting ready at the venue along with her bridesmaid and flower girls. The groom and best men were getting ready in another room at the other end of the venue, this made my job a little easier to get the groom and bride getting ready. The bride had give the groom a lovely pocket watch with a beautiful inscription of her love for him. Now the bride was about 20 weeks pregnant on the day and there was going to be a surprise reveal of the gender of the baby to family and friends who the couple had not told.

The ceremony started with the page boy , flower girls and bridesmaid entering just infant of the bride who was being walked down the aisle by her dad, just as the groom turned towards the bride the tears of joy started to roll down his face.

As soon as the ceremony had finished we headed outside for a few photos before the light faded away (cold wintery january) we managed to get a few shots before heading back inside for the meal, speeches, cake cutting and first dance oh yes and the the big reveal!! It had been a wonderful wedding and a pleasure to photograph so a beautiful couple. It was also nice to be back at Beaumont House.

Here are a few images from the day.

Favourite Venues - Easthampstead Park. https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/7/favourite-venues---easthampstead-park FAVOURITE VENUES

EASTHAMPSTEAD PARK - BRACKNELL

Easthampstead park is one of my favourite venues to photograph at with its amazing house and grounds, a wedding photographers dream!!

Easthampstead park is a gorgeous grade II listed victorian mansion set in the bracknell countryside.

It was used by royalty such as Edward III for hunting and used for Catherine of aragon's wedding. It was also used by the army during the second world war where many nissin huts were dotted around the grounds, This made it an easy target for the german bombers which hit the gate lodge at the start of the long drive.

 

THE BACK OF THE HOUSE AT NIGHT.

 

Even before you enter the house you are greeted by the impressive half-mile tree lined drive that brings you to the grand house with its stunning architecture which will certainly impress your guest. 

 

THE LONG TREE LINED DRIVE TO THE HOUSE.


 

Easthampstead park is renowned for its stunning gardens with its water fountain and vast array of trees, which make beautiful back drops for your wedding photos. It also gives the children chance to run around and burn off some of that excess energy.

 

THE WATER FOUNTAIN IN THE MAIN GARDEN.

The venue has a wonderful outdoor ceremony pavilion if the weather is good or if its not the indoor ceremony rooms are just as beautiful with their high ceilings and large windows which also give a beautiful natural light. 

 

THE OUTDOOR CEREMONY PAVILLION


 

 

There is also the grand staircase and stunning stain glass window which dominates the the staircase and again makes for some beautiful photographs.

 

THE BEAUTIFUL STAIRCASE AND STAINED GLASS WINDOW


 

I love Easthampstead park as a wedding venue and have photographed quite a few weddings there over the years.

So if you are considering Easthampstead park as the venue for your big day you should definitely get in touch with them and myself as i would love to capture it for you!!!!

Rachel And Lee's Berkshire Wedding - Sonning Golf Club https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/5/rachel-and-lees-berkshire-wedding---sonning-golf-club SONNING GOLF CLUB BERKSHIRE WEDDING - RACHEL AND LEE

At the end of last year i had the pleasure of photographing rachel and lee's wedding at the registry office before it shut its doors to weddings. The sun was shinning and the guest were arriving for what was to be a great wedding. The bride arrived in a beautiful vintage rolls Royce with her mother by her side. As soon as the ceremony was over we headed outside for a few photos before we headed off to the reception venue.

The reception venue was at the golf club in sonning-on-thames which was beautiful, with some beautiful backdrops of the course. I managed to get some shots done before the couple sat down for their meal. Once they were finished it was time for the speeches and the groom who was very nervous did an amazing job as did the grooms father and best man. Soon i had the couple back outside with their guest for more photos, the guest were having a wonderful time and it made for some great photos. As soon as we could i got the couple at on the golf course once the last player had finished their round of golf, (you don't want the couple injured!) to get some evening shots but the cloud cover had come in and we went for the moody look in the photos. We then went back inside to get ready for the cake cutting and first dance, and watch to watch the guest get up and show everyone their moves..I do love my job!

Here are a few from the wedding.

Danielle & Ryan's Hilton St Annes Wedding https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/4/danielle-ryans-hilton-st-annes-wedding HILTON ST ANNE MANOR | BERKSHIRE WEDDING

Late last year i had the pleasure of photographing Dani and Ryan's wedding.The wedding was to be held at the Hilton St Anne Manor in bracknell, this was another new venue for me and once again it was a lovely wedding venue. The day started with the bridal preparations with Dani and her bridesmaids who i must say were all very relaxed, which made my job that much easier. With the groom and his best man arriving it was time to run downstairs and photograph them before running back upstairs to photograph the bride in her dress. It was then time to head outside for the ceremony with the sun shining and the guest all enjoying the warmth. With the groom looking on the bride arrived with her dad on her arm, soon the ceremony started and with a few speeches from friends the moment was almost over. It was time for a few drinks and some photos with friends and family before the meal and speeches which were very funny!. With the light stating to go we headed back out side for some evening photo before retuning inside for the cake cutting and first dance. It was a great evening and the guest were up for a good time.

Here are a few images from the wedding.

Debbie and Trevor's stirrups country house hotel wedding https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/debbie-and-trevors-stirrups-country-house-hotel-wedding Early st peters church - Stirrups country House Hotel

The wedding of debbie and trevor started at the church as there were no bridal preparations to do. I arrived at Early st Peters Church in beautiful sunshine to find the groom already there with his best man and ushers. We waited for the bride and bridesmaids to arrive, Her brother Darren was giving her away as sadly her dad had passed away. Once the bride and bridesmaids had arrived we headed inside for the ceremony and then back outside for some photos before heading off to the reception venue. It was the first time i had photographed at the stirrups country house hotel, and it was an amazing place to photograph at.The weather was so hot and sunny which made it a little tricky with the photos but we manage to get some wonderful shots. Now this couple were great to photograph as the bride was a rugby player and the groom was a football coach so there was a fun evening ahead with the brides rugby team joining us. 

The speeches were very emotional and very funny, once over it was time to get the bride and groom outside for some lovely evening shots around the grounds. The evening guest started to arrive and then the fun started with the rugby team, it was such a fun evening. It was soon time for the first dance and cake cutting  and then a few more late evening photos before i left. 

Here are a few images from Debbie and Trevor's wedding.

Lauren & Charlie's Old Thorns Wedding https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2019/3/lauren-charlies-old-thorns-wedding THE OLD THORNS HOTEL - HAMPSHIRE

This was my first time shooting a wedding at the old thorns hotel, it was an amazing venue with the lovely golf course as a back drop. Lauren and charlie were an absolute dream to photograph, The day started quite early with the bridal preparations and there were a few nerves in the room. Lauren soon became chilled and there was a lot of people popping in to wish her luck. while lauren was having some time with her friends i made my way over to the other side of the venue where the groom and his best man and usher's were getting ready. I got some shots of the boys having a laugh before making my way back the the bride to be. As soon as the dress was on and done up it was time to make our way down to the ceremony chapel. Once the ceremony was over everybody headed outside in the glorious sunshine. When the couple had said their hello's to guest we were whisked off across the golf course in the buggy by the staff for some shots. Once we were back and everyone had relaxed i got some more natural shots of people enjoying the day before heading the the gatsby room for the meal and reception. The speeches were done and it was then on to the first dance and cake cutting, the bride and father dance was spectacular, it wasn't the usual dance but more of an upbeat rehearsed dance with the bridesmaids as well. It was such a great day! Here are a few from Lauren and charlie's big day.

KAILEY & RICHARDS BERKSHIRE WEDDING https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2018/11/kailey-richards-berkshire-wedding KAILEY & RICHARD'S WEDDING | THE MILLHOUSE HOTEL SWALLOWFIELD

During the early part of this year i had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Kailey and Richard. The couple had chosen The millhouse hotel in swallowfield as their venue for the whole wedding. This was a new venue for me and i was looking forward to photographing there. I arrived at the venue in the morning with the sky a beautiful blue for all the bridal preparations, the room that kailey was in was a hive of activity with children all around having fun plus there was a royal wedding on for everyone to watch! 

It was not long before it was time to head outdoors for the ceremony, the sun was still shining down on the couple which made for some beautiful photos. As with every wedding time just flies past and after a few more group and family photos it was time to take the couple of for few on their own before they sat down for their meal. We headed off around the venue and in to the nearby farmers field. 

Once the couple had eaten and had chatted to friends and family it was time for the speeches, these always make me laugh!!  Time was moving very quickly and i had the sunset shot to do before i missed the gorgeous evening light. I set everything up and waited for the bride and groom to meet me for the shot, only to find out the bride had a dress malfunction!!! and i wondered if i would get the shot that they wanted. The bride finally arrived with the dress sorted and we headed of to the farmers field again, just in time for the wonderful sunset. The evening was amazing everyone was having a great time and there was some interesting dancing going on. 

Here are few shots from the day.

So the day arrived for me to photograph the lovely sarah and emily at their wedding at highfield park, I had never photographed at this venue before so i was looking forward to using the wonderful grounds. When i arrived sarah was having her hair and make up done and emily was due later.When emily arrived she was in the room adjacent to sarah so we had to be careful that neither of them saw one another.Once the girls were ready we made our way to the ceremony room, Sarah held her nerves in anticipation for the arrival of emily who was being given away by her father. After the ceremony we headed outside for some group photos and to get the bridal shots done around the grounds. We then headed in for the meal and then speeches.After this we managed to get out for a couple of sunset shots with the girls before heading in for the dancing and fun! Here are a few from their day.

Ben and kate's wedding was a slightly different one for me, the couple had decided to get married in this country and then have a second ceremony in spain. the wedding was to be held in warfield then the reception over at the wonderful Easthampstead park in bracknell. I stared the day at the brides parents home where her dad had been building a stunning car for the last 20 years and had finished it the day before the wedding to take his daughter to the church. Once the the bridal preparations shots had been done we headed outside in to the garden for some photo's before heading off to the church. once the ceremony was over it was time to head off to Easthampstead park for the reception. We strolled around the lovely grounds for the photo's before the couple got ready to head to the airport for the next leg of their wedding. Her are a few photos from thier day.

LIA AND BEN'S WEDDING-UFTON COURT

Lia and ben's wedding was going to be a great day as i had never photographed at Ufton Court before. The day started we me arriving at the hotel where the bridal party was getting ready. Once i had photographed most of the detailed shots and some of the bridal party it was off to the groom and his party who were just around the road at his parents house. Again once those images were taken it was back around the corner to the hotel to finish getting the bridal preparation images. It wasn't long before the car had arrived to take the bridesmaids to the the church before returning to collect the bride and her father. The church which ben and lia were getting married in was beautiful and somewhere i had not photographed in before. Once the ceremony was over and the photographs were taken we all headed over to the stunning Ufton Court for the reception. This was a first for me in many ways, firstly i hadn't been to ufton court before and i had also never photographed a greek wedding before. What a fantastic experience it was to be part of their day. Here are a few from their big day.

Having photographed diane and anthony's pre-wedding shoot here at warbrook house, I really hoped the wedding day would be as much fun as that shoot was.The day started with bright sunshine,Diane was so relaxed and in high spirits when i arrived.Once i had got the detail shots done it was time to find the groom and his group of men,i found them outside ready for a few shots. It was then time to return to the bride for more shots before heading to the ceremony room.once the ceremony was done we headed outside for some group shots and then it was time to jump in the golf buggy and head around to the lake for the bride and groom shots.We then headed back ready for the meal and speeches.Later that evening once the first dance had been done i took the diane and anthony outside to get a lovely sunset shot of them to end the day. It was a Great day and everyone had a lot of fun.

Rivervale Barn Wedding | Hayley & Ben https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/rivervale-barn-wedding-hayley-ben Hayley and Ben's Rivervale Barn Wedding

For this wedding i had the added bonus of knowing the bride and groom, i have known hayley and her brothers for many years as we went to school together! It was an absolute honour to be asked to photograph their wedding. The day started at the casa hotel in yately,where the bride and her bridesmaids were getting ready. Once again the girls hair was being done by the talented michelle blackman of hair design & makeup by michelle and make up was by amy goodall-smith Once the bride and her bridal party were ready and had their hair and makeup done they headed over to Rivervale barn to finish their preparations,I caught up with the groom and his bestman and ushers outside the front of the building before returning to the bridal suite where the bride looked amazing in her maggie sorterro dress, As soon as everyone was ready the bride made her way from the bridal suite across the courtyard and into the main building ready for the service.Once the service was over it was time to mingle with the guest before i took the happy couple outside into the gardens at the back of the venue. 

Once the couple shots were completed it was time to sit down for the meal,after the meal it was time for the speeches which were very funny and emotional,all to soon it was time for the cake cutting and first dance..Here are a few from the wedding..

BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/12/boudoir-photography SOME OF THE IMAGES ON THIS BLOG ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK!!!!!!

 

A little while ago at the swpp convention in london i won a chance of a life time to photograph and get training alongside mark cleghorn at his studio in wales for 2 days, Now mark is one of the countries top photographers and is highly respected within the photography world. For me this was a fantastic opportunity to improve my photography skills and learn more about studio lighting. As a photographer you need to keep learning and improving your techniques to be able to give your clients the best possible experience when they come to you for images,that could be either a family session,newborn session or even a wedding.With todays cameras being widely available to everyone it seems every joe bloggs is a "Professional photographer",this is so far from the truth!! Here are a few images from this training course.

We started with a few shots of guest with their partners, friends and family's, Then once everybody was ready to sit down for the meal we had the pleasure of being walked in by a piper. The bagpipes are quite a sound!!! Once the meal was over it was time for the speeches and celebrations.

Earlier this year i had a the pleasure of photographing a lovely couple who had got in touch via my Facebook page where i had offered a free noir portrait session. After talking with kim we arranged for me to visit there home in padworth reading. I set up the black background and single large octobox in their living room and the images would be turned into black and white.We also shot a few images in colour as both kim and peter were members of the army and wanted a few images dressed in their outfits. We had a laugh doing this session and we even managed to get a few shots of their dog hammish. Here are a few from the session. If you would like to receive these style images please get in touch using the contact page.

LUCIE AND PAULS HENLEY WEDDING https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/11/lucie-and-pauls-henley-wedding LUCIE AND PAULS BADGEMORE PARK WEDDING, HENLEY-ON-THAMES

Lucie and paul had decided to have their wedding in a lovely venue which i had not been to before, BADGEMORE PARK in Henley-on-Thames. I arrived early in the morning to find the bride and her two bridesmaids relaxing. While the hair and make-up girls got to work,i got the usually detail shots done and then went across to the venue to capture the groom and his brother who was his bestman. It was then back across to where the bride was getting ready to finish off with the dress being done up.Once everyone was ready it was time for a few shots outside before walking the short distance to the venue where paul was waiting. Lucie is polish and her parents and friends had made a long trip from poland to be with her on her big day and you could see this had made her very emotional. When the service was over we headed out in to the courtyard for photos, once the group shots and family ones were done paul,lucie and myself headed off for the couple shots, we also had been given the opportunity to get a few shots around the lake which is right in the middle of the golf course, making sure not to get hit on the head by a stray ball!. It was then onto the meal and speeches which the bestman's speech was very amusing and made paul a little embarrassed.In the evening a live band played for everybody and they were pretty damn good. Here are a few shots from the wedding.

RACHEL AND JAMES ELVETHAM HOTEL WEDDING. https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2016/11/rachel-and-james-elvetham-hotel-wedding ELVETHAM HOTEL WEDDING OF RACHEL AND JAMES.

I had the great pleasure of photographing Rachel and James at two venues which i had not been to so it was a great experience for me. Both Rachel and James are involved with horses,rachel is a keen rider and james is a farrier, As you will notice some of the table decorations were hand made for them.The day started off at the bride's parents home in swallowfield,Berkshire for the preparations. The house was a hive of activity with all the bridesmaids and a very calm bride having make up and hair done. Once everyone was ready we headed out in the garden for a few bridal party and family shots before we headed for St Batholomews church in arborfield, There i met a very nervous looking groom and his bestman and ushers, once all the guest had arrived and were seated and the groom was ready, i headed back outside for the arrival of the bride and her father in a beautiful white rolls royce. Once inside and the service was done we headed back outside for a few shots before heading off to the reception venue which was the beautiful 19th-century mansion the elvetham Hotel in Hartley wintney. As soon as everyone had arrived we managed to get some Bride and groom shots done around the stunning grounds before doing the group shots. Once the meal was over and the speeches began i could tell this was going to be a good evening and it was. Here are a few shots from the day.

ST JAMES CHURCH READING WEDDING

Back in may i had the chance to photograph my first kenyan wedding which to place at st james church next to forbury gardens in reading, the day started in a very packed brides home not far from the church, as this was my first wedding of this type i can certainly say i was not expecting what was to happen during the day, with it being a very religious there were lots of signing,dancing and chanting. After the ceremony everyone headed over to the copped beech hotel in bracknell for the reception.There were lots of family members that had made the long journey from all over the globe to be here for patrick and eva.The kenyan's can certainly party as this wedding went on for some time but it was great to be part..here are a few images from the wedding.

held at pincents manor,both venues are very beautiful and lovely to photograph at. leanne and paul were both great sports and they were

the girls were in very high spirits,we then moved on to the church where some of the children from her school class came to wish her well with a 

lovely banner,which was a great surprise for leanne and the tears started to flow. The service at the church was a great spectacle but these

THINGS EVERY BRIDE SHOULD KNOW AND ASK https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/9/things-every-bride-should-know-and-ask I came across these on the internet recently and thought i would share these with you as i think its very important for brides and grooms to understand what wedding photography is about. 

5 facts you need to know about wedding photography

Copyright

Because you hire the photographer and you appear in the pictures you may be tempted to think that you automatically hold the copyright of all images taken by your wedding photographer.
The reality is that you don’t and, unless otherwise stated on your contract, your photographer always holds the copyright of your wedding photos which means that he is entitled to sell them, publish them and share them while you are not.
So what can couples do? Technically speaking, if you want to have the freedom of sharing your wedding pictures on the social networks or print copies yourself you need to agree on a separate licence with your photographer. This may cost a little extra but is highly recommended.
In some cases, this clause is already included in the contract but do make sure you check and ask your photographer to make changes to the agreement if needed.

Good photographers don’t come cheap

It’s no secret that photography can cost up to 10% of your wedding budget so, unless your spending plan really doesn’t allow it and you need to find an alternative , but this is really an area you shouldn’t be prepared to scrimp on.
But just like all big expenses, you need to ensure that the person you’re hiring will be able to do a good job. How many wedding photographers charge a fortune and then deliver very little? Well, unfortunately it does happen. So, pretty please, do take your time to do all the required research and remember that good photographers can get booked even one or two years in advance so start looking early.

Make sure you know what’s included

Wedding photographers work in different ways and therefore it’s sometimes difficult to compare packages. Generally speaking, the total fee depends on how long the photographer spends at your wedding, the number of pictures taken and what format the images are delivered after the big day (album, digital, etc.). So is a package cheap because prints are charged separately? Or because the licence enabling you to re-print the photos is not included? Check, check, check and make sure you know what each photographer offers before making a decision.

Be budget savvy

Following on from the copyright point made above, you also need to be aware that photographers tend to keep negatives or digital disc for a certain period of time after each wedding. Consider and compare the re-print prices when doing your initial research. Chances are the standard packages will not include this option so make sure you ask for a breakdown of the costs and if the package offered does not match your requirements, do ask for a custom quote in order to pay for what you really want and need.

Wedding photography is so much more than taking pictures

Fancy equipment doesn’t make a good wedding photographer just like lots of cool kitchen gadgets would not make me the next Nigella! So when you consider your options for your big day, remember that passion for the industry, experience, personality, the ability to capture emotions as well as all the technical knowledge are ultimately what makes spending a small fortune on a talented wedding photographer worth every penny.

How to choose your wedding photographer

Determine your budget

There are many elements of your big day where you’ll be able to save money and still achieve incredible results. However, in my experience, your wedding photography isn’t one of them.
The truth is that really talented wedding photographers don’t come cheap. Although the last thing you want to do is shop by price, having a price range that fits into your overall wedding budget before you start your research can help you quickly discard candidates you really cannot afford.

Determine what photographic style you prefer

Deciding which photographic style you both like best is possibly the hardest thing. Generally speaking, the main choice comes down to either traditional posed photos and formal line-ups or more reportage-style shots where the photographer will stay in the background and capture the precious moments as they happen with more natural shots, leaving you the freedom to enjoy the big day. Or perhaps you may want a mix of both. Each style has its pros and cons and some photographers may be skilled in reportage photography only and vice versa.
On top of that, consider whether you would like any black and white shots or colour only.

Decide what picture formats you will want

Before approaching any photographer, it’s important for you and your partner to discuss what format will work best for you. By this I mean prints, albums, negatives or digital photo files. Some formats will likely drive the price down, others might mean that you will need to wait a few weeks before being able to see the photos. Each wedding photographer has a preferred method so make sure you know what you want and ask whether they can meet your requirements.

Determine what moments you wish the photographer to capture

The last thing you need to consider before starting your search is which moments you wish to be captured. Do you wish to book the photographer for the ceremony only? Do you want them there for the whole day including the evening reception? Or perhaps you’d rather book a complete package which includes a pre-wedding shoot and the bridal preparation before the ceremony?

Do your research

By now you should have a better idea of what type of photographer you wish you book for your big day so it’s time to start your research. Just like with any other wedding supplier, recommendations from friends, family and other vendors are a great starting point. Alternatively, use the web to find photographers that work in your area: most wedding photographers have really comprehensive websites from which you’ll be able to take a look at their package options and portfolio to judge whether their style meets what you had in mind.

Shortlist, interview and meet the photographers

So make a list of the wedding photographer that fit your criteria for style and price and interview each prospective photographer by phone. This is your opportunity to ask further questions regarding their experience, level of service, availability on your selected date and generally get an idea of whether they’re someone you could get along with. You could also do this in person, however, if you’re as busy with wedding preparations as I am, you’ll want to make sure you only take the time to meet candidates that fit the bill.
So after your phone interviews refine your list and remove any wedding photographers that don’t match your criteria. Phone and book a face to face appointment with the ones you liked best.

The devil is in the details

Go to each meeting prepared with a list of things you wish to clarify before making a booking including experience, level of service, prices, photo formats, references and delivery times.
Aside from their photography skills, pay close attention to their personality. Are they passionate about what they do or is it just another job? Please remember that  your selected wedding suppliers will be there during some of the most nerve-wracking hours of your life so you need to make sure you get on and genuinely like them.
However tempting, never ever book your selected wedding photographer there and then – go home and discuss with your other half. There’s no need to panic but the photography is one of the most important (and expensive!) elements of your big day and you want to make sure the decision is not rushed.

Found the perfect photographer for the job? Book early!

Once you’re 100% confident with your choice, make your booking as soon as you can. Talented wedding photographers get snapped up quickly, especially if you’re planning a summer wedding or getting married on a Saturday. Some photographers even offer discounts for early-bird bookings so it’s definitely worth confirming all the details as soon as you’ve made your choice.

BABY CHARLIE https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/9/baby-charlie A few months ago i got to photograph a lovely young boy called charlie, along with his mum holly. Holly had won a free photoshoot on my Facebook page, as with all young children you never know how they will react to someone new in their home with all this studio lighting.

Charlie was an absolute star and seemed to have a good time and we managed to get some lovely images, here are a few from the session.

​I had the great pleasure of photographing nigel and karen's wonderful wedding at the beautiful easthampstead park in bracknell, the weather on the day turned out to be bright blue sky's and bright sunshine. The day started early to get karen's preparations shots done before her husband to be arrived, then it was down stairs to photograph the groom,best man and pageboys getting ready. As the morning progressed the nerves were amazingly low and everybody was in good spirits. The ceremony was a lovely affair with the brides mother doing a poignant reading. The rest of the day flew by, the pageboys were very playful and very willing for their pictures to be taken and assisted me throughout the day. The speeches were some of the most intresting ones i have come across with the brides dad being very naughty, but very funny!

Nigel & Karen's pre-wedding shoot https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/4/nigel-karens-pre-wedding-shoot NIGEL AND KAREN'S BLENHIEM PALACE PRE-WEDDING SHOOT 

In march i had the chance to photograph a couple at the fantastic venue of blenhiem palace, nigel and karen's pre-wedding shoot was going to be a test as both of them were very shy in front of the camera and with the venue being so busy i thought it could be harder than i thought, But i needn't have worried as after the first five minutes the pair of them really relaxed and they seemed to enjoy themselves, and they forgot that there was so many people around them.... this venue has a very special place in their hearts as this is the place that nigel proposed to karen and is one of their favourite places to go and i can see why. the grounds to the palace is absolutely stunning with the waterfall (the spot where nigel proposed) the lake, the gardens next to the palace and of course the main courtyard in front of the palace. here are some of the images that we managed to get.

BIRDS OF PREY https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2014/4/b BIRDS OF PREY PHOTOSESSION AT FEATHERS AND FUR FALCONRY CENTRE.

I recently had a fantastic opportunity to photograph some birds of prey at a local falconry centre in reading, These birds are something of a fascination for me and had been wanting to photograph them for some time, so when i had this chance i couldn't wait. the centre is run by a wonderful lady called sadie who really looks after the group of photographers that she has, she was very helpful and was very helpful in setting up some shots and told the group where the best shot should taken from. here are a few shot from the session, i hope you like them.

The venue is a stunning intimate little church with beautiful locations for the photographs. The weather forecast didn't look great!!! but we didn't need to worry the sun was out for most of the day providing beautiful natural light. once the ceremony was over we headed straight back across the road to the great house, stopping the traffic on the way.

Once at the great house the fun continued with some lovely portraits by the staircase and in the grounds. we then headed out by the river for some more shots, thankfully good weather continued.

It was then back for the meal,cake cutting and first dance.

Here are a few images from the day i hope you like them.

The Bennett Family Photoshoot. https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/5/the-bennett-family-photoshoot Recently i had the great pleasure of photographing a wounderful family. They were all very unsure about having their photos taken in the studio.

After a few shots they soon started to relax and enjoy themselves and we got some lovely photos.

It is always nice to see a family who are very nervous soon relax, as this means that they are comfortable with me as a photographer. which also means i can get the photos they didn't think they would ever get..

lily's photoshoot https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/3/lilys-photoshoot Recently i had the great pleasure of photographing a wonderful little girl called lily.

This photoshoot was one of the most pleasing i have done, as lily is a special needs child..

This little girl was full of beans and very chatty but listen'd to everything that was asked of her.

I am a photographer and a person that strongly belives that disability isn't  and should never be an issue, this little lady was an absolute star.

I hope you like this small selection of images..

PHOTO NOIR https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/2/photo-noir Photo-Noir is a beautiful style of photography which can be done anyway with a single light source...

The images below were shot in my living room with a small black cloth background and a single studio light with a small softbox.

The light was placed at 45 degrees to the subject and about 2 feet away, giving a very soft spread of light.

They were shot at 1/200s F8 iso100, then converted to black and white inside of photoshop.

I hope you like them.

Thanks andy

HDR PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2013/1/hdr-photography HDR Photography is a subject that divides photographers world wide.

I am one of those photographers that likes this style of photography, now high dynamic range (hdr) can produce some stunning images.

With this style of photography you will need a tripod, a camera release cable as you want everything to be rock solid so you dont get any camera shake, you then need to take a series of shots,with the shutter speed changing by a minimum of three stops, ie.. 1/60s 1/125s 1/250s then combine all three images in software such as photoshop, by taking three images give you much better use of the complete tonal range of the image.

There are two ways of producing images in this way,the first is with the more natural way and then there is the "over cooked" way.

"over cooked" means that the colours are saturated and the detail within the image is more apparent giving it a ethreal look.

I recently had a walk around sonning-on-thames with this style of photography in mind and produced a few images shown here.

I hope you like what you see..

Thanks andy....

Sarah and kevins trunkwell house wedding. https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/12/sarah-and-kevins-trunkwell-house-wedding A few weeks after their pre-wedding shoot sarah and kevins wedding was here. But the weather was not on our side as it had rained all night and all morning,so the outdoors wedding was off and everybody stayed in the dry.

Trunkwell house is an old house with wounderful features and grounds. Even though the weather wasn't great the wedding its self was.With both the bride and groom getting ready at the venue it was easy to photograph both parties getting ready.

We were lucky enough to have a wonderful wedding co-ordinator at the venue and we managed to use the rather large marquee that is situated in the grounds. We did manage to get around half an hour of dry weather so we got the couple outside with their family for some group family shots. We then headed back in for the wedding breakfast, then the first dance.

Sarah and kevins pre-wedding shoot https://www.andrewwicksonphotography.co.uk/blog/2012/12/sarah-and-kevins-pre-wedding-shoot Earlier this year i had the great pleasure of being asked to photographer sarah deneka and kevin littleboy's wedding, which would be held at trunkwell house in reading. As with most couples they said they were very unsure of having their photos taken, So what a better way for a couple to get used to having a camera pointed at them all day than to have a pre-wedding shoot.

After having a chat to sarah and kev about the venue they wanted to use for these images they choose their local venue caversham court, its a beautiful little venue by the river thames with alot of history.
