Photography and Videography together, why didn't I do this before !
So January has almost come to an end and I have been flat out. I am trying my very best to update the blog and it's proving to be just as tricky as I thought it would. I'm trying my best to be myself on here too and it's taking a little courage, as most other wedding photography blogs i've read seem to be very strictly wedding photography. I want to share a bit of me as a person on here so that you can get know me like my friends do. Really you want your photographer to basically be like having one of your friends there with you on the day. I've talked about some of the other art/photography projects that I am involved with on the website and I've been pretty busy this month. So this January I have been working with a few local bands that I am getting involved with for a documentary film about the Punk Rock music scene. It's been really fun. They're all super nice guys and they are involved in tons of projects that benefit the community and people in need of a little extra help. They're all down to earth smart lovely people and that's kinda what the documentary covers, that and the positive aspects surrounding the scene. On top of that I have been shooting a music video for another Cardiff band and that has taken up quite bit of time. I haven't even had a chance to jump in the sea for a surf ! Later today I have a photo shoot with a lovely make up artist and bridal supplier so keep your eyes peeled for some styled shoot images hopefully popping up soon. I don't want to give too much away as I wanted that to be a pretty special post and I'll have tons to talk about specifically in that post.
Finally, I have also decided to combine my photography packages with my videography packages. It just makes sense.
As you may or may not know I also shoot wedding videography (under a different name) as Arcadia Wedding Films. As I mentioned in a previous post I have taken more and more weddings shooting video and photography. I didn't really think about it before but it makes sense. If somebody wants to have a photography package and also a videography package and I can provide both then I should totally do it. I don't know why I didn't think about it before.
I'm offering a few dates out at a reduced price to get people booking in with them, this discount is available to certain weddings. Basically if it's a really different wedding or at a venue that I have only shot a few times, then I would like to help that couple out by making it a little cheaper.
The normal cost for a photography and videography package starts at £1800. But I will be offering a hand full of dates out for a fee a little less than that. If you think that your wedding is a little different then leave me a message below. The same goes for friends and family, if you want to nominate somebody that maybe needs a bit of a boast with their wedding planning, perhaps they've had some bad luck with their date or other suppliers, any reason at all, just let me know and I will try my best to help out.
I like to think of it as kama, just be nice and everything else will fall into place. Hopefully the next post will have some awesome video and photography from the styled shoot later.
