The Helvellyn Package: £1000
This is my intermediate package and is suited to those who are looking for more to remember their big day by.
The Helvellyn Package is absolutely ideal for those wanting to commemorate their special day with a high quality album or other photographic accessories like picture frames, canvases or contemporary acrylic frames. Helvellyn starts at £1000.
If your main priority is an album, then in my opinion this is the ideal package for your needs. However, if this isn’t quite what you’re looking for, try comparing with my other packages.
I’m happy to do an initial consultation at the location of your choice, either your home, mine or any other location you might prefer within reason.
Preshoot or Extra Hour:
My preshoot includes a second consultation, around two or three months before your big day, followed by a preshoot session to get you used to the type of posing I might ask you do. If you’ve retained my services, I will give you one image free from this session to use as you see fit. I’m happy to do several preshoot days if you like, but past the first preshoot these will be charged at £30 per hour.
If you don’t want or need a preshoot, I offer an extra hour of coverage on your day instead.
Six Hours Total Coverage:
I will give you six hours of coverage, excluding any breaks I take. Additional hours are charged at £30 per hour.

Pre-shoot or Extra Hour?
This really depends on your event….
For your wedding, I’d recommend choosing the pre-shoot, as this this gives us the chance to go over some of the poses and direction I’m likely to give. It will also give you a feel for my style of photography, as well as allow us to get to know each other a little. This makes the formal part of your wedding photography much more relaxed and enjoyable – exactly what you want on your big day!
Some couples are much more comfortable with a photojournalistic or candid approach to their wedding photography; similarly, for an event like a birthday party, candid photography might well be more appropriate. Here, only a consultation would be necessary, and you might be better off taking the option of the extra hour.
As part of my Helvellyn package, you can claim a 7.5% special discount on any additional photographic accessories available through my shop as part of your order. This includes any photographic items, except the album itself, purchased using your album voucher.
So you can get your special discount on additional album construction costs, parent albums, additional albums, frames, canvases, mounts, extra prints, etc. If you don’t use your entire album voucher on the album, you can also redeem any remaining value against any other items at your special discount rate.
A typical album contains between 50 – 90 images. Where my album make-up service is included in your package, I will design an album based on your choice of images and provide an album preview for your final approval with a quote as to its value.
Of course, more pages will be required for a larger number of images, and the greater will be the cost of your final album. Similarly, costs will increase if you choose an album with a larger page format, so please bear this in mind when making your choices.
If you’re really not sure, I’m more than happy to arrange a special home visit (or, if you prefer, for you to visit me) after your special day to go through your images and help you construct your perfect album.
You can read a bit more about why you might choose a package with an album in my FAQs page.
