Information about the services provided by Lydia Stamps Photography are outlined below
Back Up Equipment
I always shoot with two cameras and have back up kit in addition. Just to be on the safe side!
Engagement shoots are a brilliant way to experience what it’s like being photographed before the day. They can really help put your nerves to rest, there’s really nothing to worry about! They’re also great for using the images for your save the dates or invites if you’d like!
Full Day Coverage
My 9hr package from bridal prep to the first dance, with your images presented on USB is my most popular option, drop me a line for more details!
Half Day Coverage
I offer a five hour package if you’re looking for coverage just until dinner. This is available for weddings on Sundays through to Thursdays.
As well as your USB your photography will be presented in a secure online gallery which makes sharing your friends and family easy.
A complementary print bundle is included with each wedding, and your friends and family can also order prints via your online gallery!
All my packages include a pre-wedding consultation to go over all the details and logistics. These usually take place around a month before the big day, and can be in person over a glass of wine, or often via skype.
Prices Starting From
£1550 for five hours coverage or £1950 for nine hours ‘all day’ coverage
Second Shooter Available
A second shooter comes as standard with all my packages to give you the best possible coverage.
Willing to Travel
I’ve been lucky enough to shoot weddings all over the world, so whether you’re planning a far flung elopement or a homespun day in the back garden I can’t wait to hear all about it. I travel worldwide for weddings, for coverage in Scotland or further afield please ask for a quote. Travel expenses (petrol, taxi fares etc.) are included for weddings in England & Wales however an overnight accommodation fee of £200 is payable for weddings more than a two hour journey from Salisbury, Wiltshire.
I offer two different styles of album which can be bound in leather or canvas in the colour of your choice. They’re handmade in the UK with eco-friendly credentials!
I knew I wanted Lydia as my photographer as soon as I had seen some of her photos on Instagram. She was fabulous on the day, made us feel so relaxed, guests commented on how well she integrated with everyone & the photos are stunning, she captured the whole day perfectly!
From our very first correspondence, Lydia has been knowledgeable and professional, but with an infectious warmth and kindness. We were recommended Lydia by a friend,when we got engaged, but every single person who I spoke to after we booked knew Lydia and said we had the made an AMAZING choice! Having had both an engagement shoot & since our wedding I couldn’t agree more! We could not have asked for a more confident, happy, kind, talented, discrete photographer to capture our special day.
Lydia was fantastic, the quality of her photos are out of this world. Lydia made us at ease instantly, laughing and joking with us so that no photos were forced. She ensured that we kept to the wedding timeline so that we had time to spend with our guests, so no-one felt left out. A lot of the guests have commented that they didn’t even realise there was a photographer there when half the photos were taken. Lydia’s communication was second to none and we felt confident in her ability.
