Thank you to everyone who has supported my business over the last year. As we go into another exciting year of weddings I wanted to celebrate all my lovely clients who got married in 2015. I had the pleasure of photographing over 40 weddings. A fab year full of lots of love and laughter and fabulous love stories. I had the pleasure for the first year of photographing 1 wedding in Europe and also a wedding on the amazing Isles of Scillys and Jersey. So weddings this year have really been mixed up with different locations and many new wedding venues which I have not photographed at before.
Also on a personal note 2015 I had the pleasure of celebrating being married for a year and had the great news of expecting a new addition to the family not a puppy sadly!!! but a little baby boy on route who will make a appearance in March 2016. I am looking forward to the year ahead and photographing some amazing weddings in 2016 which I am so looking forward to. I ended 2015 on a high with having achieved third year in a row Best Wedding Photographer London and South East Regional Finalist also had the pleasure of winning Merit Award from the Master of Photographers for most Aspiring Member with a great bridal photograph. I am looking forward to what 2016 will have in store.

Hampshire Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod 2015 Wedding showcase
Digital Wedding Packages, have become very popular within the photography as it really allows sharing and instant photography for your wedding. However is this really what you are after? Here are some things to think about below before you make that choice. After all the photographs are one of the only thing left after the day to rekindle your memories.
Here are some ideas to think about before you create a wedding package with your photographer. Well I been thinking about the excitement of the digital era and how easy it is to share our images with one another with use of Facebook and emails etc. There is no need to borrow a negative from someone drive all the way to the local printers to get a copy. Photography now is instant but we need to keep in mind the magical moment of picking up a roll of film from a shop and looking at the prints and admiring what was captured. You would never be sure if anything would even come out! Now with digital you have the reliability to check and be safe in your own mind you have captured the photograph how you wish.
I have come up with the comprise for those technology heads out there in the form of a Digital Wedding Hamper this gives you the best of the old and the new and also a little bit of me and my personality into the mix. I have been doing the Digital Hampers for over a year now but now new and improved with your initials and extra treats.
The Digital Hamper contain a section of prints….. yes prints! to get you started it’s all well and good showing people your pictures on screen TV, laptop or tablet. But the colour profiling may not alway be right on these devices therefore making your wedding photographs not look as amazing as they should. So the prints are a guide for you to allow you to see what they really should look like.
The Hamper also comes with a USB stick with the images taken on from the day and is not locked so you can share with family and friends as you wish.
Also I tend to add few extra treats into the Hamper as well for you. The Hampers are bespoke and tailored to suit you.
Important things to think about where booking a photographer that is only giving you a digital package?
1) How big can you print the photographs?
2) Is the quality high quality or low? (It’s no good having low quality for when you want that wall hanging image or sometimes a photographer may sale you low quality photo file and then you will find an additional fee for high resolution so be aware of the extra charges that may occur)
3) Back -up?
4) Does the photographer help you after the wedding with printing, framing album design etc or are you left to figure this out by yourself?
The price of my digital hampers varies depending on location there are different prices for destination weddings. Price will also vary depending on the length of coverage on the day please get in touch and I can quote especially for your big day.

Bespoke Luxury Wedding Albums only the best for my clients.
So the wedding album many people are not having wedding albums as everyone is so keen to have digital copies of there images. I think it is great to have a digital copy of all your images to share with family and friends they also act as your negatives from the day. However sometimes they sit in a draw and are only looked at every now and then.
So the wedding album which I am sure causes huge debate do you make one yourself, spend lots on money on prints and stick into a album a friend or family member has given you or do you use a online supplier to create a photo book? The list is endless to what can be created the question is do you have time and what kind of finish do you want on the album? Most online photo book companies charge from £5.99 to £ 250.00 for a photo book all depending on the finish and page numbers. That maybe a great price range but you have to sit there for at least 6hours to download and create the wedding book then the paper quality may not be what you are hoping for and you do not get to see a sample before doing it so you have not really much idea what is going to come back from the printers and also you have no idea how long it will last for.
I using state of the art software and the best album suppliers out there to give you high standard finish to the best quality. I can create albums for all clients no matter when I photographed the wedding. I can also put together albums of other photographers work as long as permission is given by the other photographer. Albums take between 4-6 weeks to create.
I try to make the album process easy stress free and personalised to you there are over 30 different combinations of covers styles and colours. I give you the freedom to create an album that is really you. So leave your photographs in my hand to tell the story of your magical day all you need to do is sit back and wait for the proof.
