Wedding Photography Packages – Karl Drage, Northampton Wedding Photographer

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES – Karl Drage, Northampton Wedding Photographer

My name is Karl Drage and I am a Northamptonshire-based wedding photographer.  I use the medium of photographs to tell as much of the story of your day as I can, and I absolutely LOVE it!  I understand that it’s likely that you’ve been thinking about your wedding day since you were just a few years old.  It therefore makes perfect sense to me that you would want your treasured memories to be recorded in the best and most comprehensive way possible.

Now, I am sure I am not unique in this, but I can honestly say that I’ve never seen a wedding photographer work harder than I do at weddings I’ve attended as a guest.  It’s something that is often commented upon by clients.

Since you have likely spent thousands of pounds putting together your perfect day, my style is very much geared towards capturing as much of the story of your day as possible.  I love to put on a long lens during the wedding breakfast to capture the interactions between you and your guests.  Every wedding has guests present who are less than comfortable in front of the camera.  The beauty of this approach means they are usually blissfully unaware that they’re the subject in my viewfinder.  In my experience, these more natural pictures are the ones that couples really cherish, rather than the sometimes forced, posed ones that everyone feels obliged to take.  That’s not to say that we won’t take some of those as well, of course (hopefully without them looking too forced!).

Couples I’ve worked with describe me as being relaxed yet professional, instilling a comfort-level that enables natural images to flow.

Ultimately, my aim is to deliver pictures that you want to look at again and again, and to get them to you in a timely manner.

I would LOVE to hear about your plans for your wedding day and for you to consider allowing me to be a part of it.

The information below and on the following links will give you an insight into the way I work with my wedding photography clients.  Allow me to walk you through some of those processes and introduce the new packages that are being introduced in September 2017.

Time-based Wedding Photography Packages

The basis for any package is the time-frame for which you require my services. As a rough guide, if you want the coverage to include your bridal preparations, I would expect to arrive sometime between two to two-and-a-half hours before your scheduled ceremony start time, depending upon the distance to the ceremony venue from the place you’re getting ready. If you want coverage purely from the ceremony onwards, I would plan to arrive around 45 minutes ahead of your scheduled ceremony start time.  This enables me to record some of the guest arrivals and capture some moments between the groom and his party. How long you require me for thereafter is down to you.

The prices quoted are for a peak-season (1st April to 30th September) wedding taking place on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday.  Discounts are available at other times.  For a personalised quote, please drop me a line or give me a call.

What my clients say:

A loving embrace between Bride and Groom on their wedding day.
Chelsea Smith
Bride
Mr & Mrs Smith

Karl did an absolutely amazing job at capturing our wedding day, with a perfect mix of formal and informal photos, managing to capture almost every single guest! I would highly recommend Karl, he is a very talented and professional photographer who did exactly what we asked and is so easy going which made us and our guests feel very comfortable. We were even more impressed at the prompt delivery of our photos already waiting for us when we got back from honeymoon! The photos are great! Thanks so much Karl.

Newly-weds embrace after the sun has set on their Halloween wedding day.

Mr & Mrs Kennedy-Butlin
Bride

Karl took on the challenge of our halloween wedding with very little notice, he did an amazing job and everyone commented on what a pleasant man he was, as well as how well he made his way around the room and how comfortable they felt being photographed by him. The photos he presented us with far exceeded our expectations and we are truly grateful. We were so impressed we are hoping to book Karl for family shoots as the children grow up 🙂 .
Could not recommend him highly enough .
Lovely man. Beautiful work. Thank you.

Lucy Woodnutt
Mr & Mrs Woodnutt
Bride

Karl did an amazing job capturing our wedding last weekend. He managed to get the perfect combination of formal and informal photos including many shots we didn’t even know he was taking. He started sending us the first images only a few days after the wedding which I can’t stop looking at! Karl was a great easy going guy whom I felt was part of our wedding rather than a photographer. Would recommend him to everyone without a doubt. Thank you again Karl. Mr & Mrs Woodnutt x
