Here’s why you should choose Portland Studios for your wedding photographer…
Portland Studios Wedding Photographers adopt a modern approach to wedding photography, giving you an individual and unique service for a mix of contemporary reportage storybook images and timeless prints that will last a lifetime. We use only the highest resolution 21 million pixel cameras to offer you the highest quality possible.
Here’s what you can expect from our Kent wedding photography service (our process):
We will invite you to attend a No-Obligation Consultation. This will be by way of an informal chat in our Sandgate studio. In comfortable surroundings, we will demonstrate our range of wedding albums including the variations available such as parent albums and miniature keepsake albums.
A FREE Pre-Wedding Kent photo-shoot when you decide to book with us (we will ask for a £195 non-refundable deposit to secure our services for your big day). This can prove useful for styling and posing tips so that you get more pleasing results on your big day.
Prior to the wedding, you will have a detailed consultation with us to discuss image requests, and for us to generally get to know you and what you would like from your wedding photography.
On the day our photographer will be there from when the Groom takes a shave through the reception. We can stay until the first dance for a small additional cost and provision of a hot meal (We’re only human and do need refueling!).
After your return from honeymoon, we will have a personal consultation at our studios. With the help of our state-of-the-art multimedia projection system, we will work with you to decide the images to be used in your final wedding album and offer you the opportunity to request specialist finishes (Spotone, Sepia and Black and White).
Typically most album packages include 80 images in the price, however, most couples choose between 180- 220 pictures in their final choice. Additional images above the original package are charged at £12.95 per image this includes the image license, artwork, and additional printing and binding costs.
During this consultation we will also design ‘Thank You’ cards exclusively for you to take away and print.
After you have chosen the wedding images for your album, we will put your images online and give you a unique login which will be activated within 7-10 working days. By logging into this website your family and friends will be able to purchase prints of your big day directly from the website.
Usually within 30 days after your consultation, we will present you with a PDF proof of your wedding album design via email. Upon approval of your album, you can expect your hand-finished wedding album to be supplied to you in a presentation box within 2-6 weeks. Please be aware that at busier times, such at Christmas these lead times may be longer.
We’ve got the experience to know how and where to take those all important family and group shots to get the best outcome. Talk to us to see what we can do for you.
We would like to invite you to the studio for a no-obligation chat to discuss your wedding photography requirements. You can view examples of our wedding photography along with samples of our albums, prints and canvases. We’ll even make you a nice cup of coffee!
Please contact us to arrange an appointment. Out of hours appointments can be catered for by prior arrangement.
