How long do you stay for on the wedding day?
Well that's up to you. If you book the Auckland or Florence package then I will be there from the bridal prep and I won’t stop until the band/DJ get well into the slow songs.
We are thinking about getting married in Italy/Mexico/New Zealand, can we still book you?
Erm...YES!! I love to travel. I find destination weddings exciting and a fantastic opportunity to experience something new. Although my package costs a little more for destination weddings this is only to cover my extra travel and accommodation expenses. I don’t charge anything extra for my travel time, even if it involves a 28 hour flight – like the one in New Zealand.
I don't know anything about photography, how do I choose a photographer?
This is a really easy one. Find images you like and then chat with the photographer to make sure you get on with them - make sure it’s the actual photographer who will be there on the day and they won’t be passing it off to an 'associate'. Out of all of the suppliers involved in your wedding day, the photographer is the only one who will be there from the start to the end so it’s important you get along. The last thing you want is to have someone around who will rub you the wrong way.
How do you do your thing?
My style is unobtrusive, natural and relaxed with a shot or two of creative awesomesauce. I work as hard as I can trying to document your wedding discreetly. I won’t stop any ceremonies, or tell people what to do, I just create a story to reflect your amazing wedding day. You can read what people say about how I work here.
Neil was fantastic at our wedding, since the day all of my guests have said how brilliant they thought Neil was and the way in which the photos were taken ( in different parts of the hotel) . The process to book and pay is very straight forward. Neil made my guests feel at ease and he captured all the moments I wanted for my photographs. He kept in contact with us throughout the planning and worked with us even in the hardest of times (our wedding date changed three times) couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!
We got married in November 2019 in Nottingham. We took the opportunity to meet up with Neil a few weeks before the wedding, and he's really easy going, yet organised, and he was flexible with what we wanted for our day. He asked for groups of names we wanted family photos with after the ceremony in advance, to make the 'formal' photo process as quick as possible. We were really happy with our photos, having a nice combination of natural photos and some more 'arty' ones. We especially got a lot of compliments from guests about the natural and funny moments that had been captured.
I cannot begin to describe how much I hate having my photo taken. I almost considered not having a photographer at all! After our first meeting with Neil, he completely put me at ease. He listened to our thoughts about the style of photos we wanted and assured me that I wasn't going to have to spend the whole wedding day posing awkwardly for pictures. The photos were on our doorstep before returned from our honeymoon and we were thrilled with all of them! I would definitely recommend Type1 Photography with no reservations whatsoever!
Choosing a photographer for your big day is one of the big pieces to the puzzle, however from the moment we decided to go with Neil, I felt a massive weight lifted. From our first meeting, I knew we had made a great choice. He is an amazing photographer, professional yet very friendly. He listened to exactly what we wanted and we were on the same page throughout the whole process. He arranged a venue visit which was great and gave us the opportunity to plan where we wanted our photos taking. On the day he brought an additional photographer to help out so nothing would be missed. Both were great and blended in so you didn't even know they were there half the time. We had them with us from the morning right through to the first dance, and it was a shame to see them leave. Neil kept in touch after the event, right up until we received our beautiful USB with our pictures. A gorgeous framed print was also provided, which we still have standing on our mantel 4 years later. Planning a wedding and sourcing all the different people involved can be a minefield, but if you are looking for a relaxed and professional experience from the start, choose Type 1 Photography
We couldn't be happier with the photos Neil took at our wedding in July. He captured the day perfectly from start to finish and the photos we have really tell the story of all of the amazing moments of the day. The photos have a truly natural style and encapsulate each part of our wedding perfectly. From laughter, love and tender moments to all the fun of the party, we have photos to look back on that will make us smile for years to come!
