I was lucky enough to go down to Devon for my first wedding of 2016. In this album I've put some shots from before the ceremony. These illustrate why it is important to get shots of such things as the bridal preparation. It really lets the bride remember the emotion of the whole day, not just a dozen formal group poses.

Dream Team Wedding Package Collaboration I am delighted to announce the "Dream Team" wedding package.

A collaboration between Karen Long Photography and Prime Lens Photography.

What does the Dream Team package contain? I'm glad you asked!

  •         We will meet with you a month before the big day over a brew, or a glass of wine (Karen's favourite) and we will run through your plans of how your big day will unfold. We want to hear how you met, the proposal and so on.
  •         100% full coverage of the wedding. Karen will be there in the morning for the bride's preparation and I will be with the groom for his. Then the two of us will both cover the rest of the wedding, right through to first dance and cutting of the cake. Effectively doubling the number of photographs and capturing your wedding from two different styles and perspectives.
  •         Both candid and posed photographs. You get 2 photographers with plenty of creative ideas to share who are also happy to capture any pose you want to try.
  •         Got a Pinterest wedding board with your ideas? We're happy to have a look!
  •         Hundreds of images from the day. I estimate anywhere between 600-1000 photos.
  •         A USB memory stick containing hi-res copies of ALL your digital images along with full printing rights.
  •         36 of your favourite images presented to you as fully retouched 9"x6" prints.
  •         Access to a private password protected gallery of all the photos from the day so you share images with your friends and pick your favourites to purchase as wall art.

All this for just £995* which is not much more than booking one of us separately!

A booking fee of £300 is required.

*Book before September 2015 to take advantage of this limited time offer. The full price will be £1195 after that date.

About Karen

Karen is a self taught photographer based in Wrexham North Wales, but travels far and wide to carry out sessions including Chester, Shropshire and the whole of North Wales.

Having been a hobbyist for many years, Karen decided to take the leap and make her passion her business in 2013 following the birth of her third daughter Florence.

Karen's work has received many features on photography blogs worldwide, she is a member of the Guild of Professional Photographers, British Association of Professional Child Photographers and is also a volunteer photographer for Rememberance Photography charity Remember my Baby.

About Tony

Tony is also self taught and based in Wrexham. He has traveled throughout the UK to photograph weddings and events, with a focus on North Wales and Northern England, but has a booking as far south as Devon for 2016.

His street photography and self portraiture have been featured in magazines and blogs all over the world and he is a member of the Guild of Photographers.

Being a part time photographer since 2006, but only making the jump to full time professional recently, Tony likes to still bring the fun and passion to the job that many seasoned pros lose.
