If you are looking for a wedding photographer within the UK, did you know that many UK wedding photographers actually cover the whole of the United Kingdom? Often couples assume that commissioning a wedding photographer from within their county or city will be a cheaper option. However, the reality is that many photographers offer a fixed rate, which is inclusive of travel expenses. It may seem strange that a photographer wouldn’t charge more for a wedding that is further away, but for most of us, the opportunity to work in a new area and at a new venue outweighs the (minimal) financial gain that would be achieved from charging travel fees. Travel fees don’t often amount to much if you’re using the HMRC rates anyway, so the opportunity to expand your portfolio working somewhere new can be a worthy investment as a wedding photographer.
For this reason, although we are based in Essex, we actually shoot weddings anywhere and everywhere. We’ve worked in numerous towns and cities all over the UK and as far afield as Italy.
We frequently provide wedding photography in Hertfordshire, Kent, Suffolk, Surrey and beyond.
Working as a wedding photographer in Hertfordshire provides us with a unique opportunity to shoot at new venues- often different types of venue to those you’ll find in Essex.
As you move further away from London, the type of wedding venues you find can be anything from country manor, to rustic, modern or contemporary. Wedding photographers in Suffolk are spoilt for choice with the many beautiful barns and historical venues such as Kentwell Hall, so it’s no wonder that Essex wedding photographers like us are eager to shoot at such stunning places.
Those who work as wedding photographers in Surrey will no doubt be familiar with beautiful venues such as Nonsuch mansion. We have been lucky enough to shoot at both Kentwell Hall and Nonsuch mansion in the past.
We have also worked at several Kent wedding venues too, including Mountains Country House and Cooling Castle barn- two very different, but equally lovely venues for any Kent wedding photographer.
Being able to be flexible and provide wedding photography anywhere in the world means that our job is varied and always interesting. It keeps us on our toes and opens us up to new experiences and adventures. This enriches our lives, our work and in turn allows us to be the best wedding photographers that we can possibly be.
Admittedly it can be difficult to always find or do something new and interesting at a venue you have shot at many times before, but the best wedding photographers often realise that it is not your setting, but your couple and your creativity that present the best opportunities to deliver something unique. When you learn to see beyond what lies immediately before your eyes you open yourself up to a whole world of possibilities.
