Well hello there! Welcome to my website, I’m Hayley, I’m a lifestyle and wedding photographer in Milton Keynes and of course, I love photographing weddings! It’s always such a privilege to be there as a couple begin a new chapter together and to be the one who captures the fun, love and emotion of their Big Day. I love getting to know a couple and their family & friends and having a good giggle with everyone on the day. And I always cry during the speeches. I just can’t help it. I’m based just outside Milton Keynes on the Buckinghamshire/Bedfordshire border but I like that photography takes me here, there and everywhere so I’m always happy to travel somewhere new, too.
On the day itself, I’m with you from whatever time you want me, right through until the evening. I try and capture everything, everyone you love, the little moments and details so that your photos tell the story of your day for your future family.
Will I get all the photos?
Yes and no! The wedding itself is not actually the bulk of the work – that happens afterwards! I go through all the images taken and choose the very best photos for you. I then edit each and every one which takes a lot of time and care. You’ll get a copy of all the images, in colour and black and white. For an all day wedding, you’ll receive 300+ images.
Do you airbrush the images?
I do retouch blemishes and stray hairs.
How long will it take for my photos to be ready?
I try to get a preview up online for you as soon as possible, usually within a couple of weeks. Your full gallery will take around 6 weeks.
Can I print the photos myself?
Yes you can! I’m happy to recommend somewhere local and I can also arrange professional prints for you.
Can guests purchase photos?
Absolutely! Your password protected wedding gallery will be available online for 6 months and your guests can view and order copies as they wish.
How much deposit do you require?
20% of the balance is required to secure your booking.
How can I pay?
Bank transfer, cash or cheque are my preferred method.
How far will you travel?
I’m happy to go anywhere in the UK and beyond! Additional costs may apply for long distances and overseas travel.
What happens if you can’t make the wedding?
This has never happened to me yet but in the unlikely event of this occurring, I would send another photographer in my place and cover any additional costs myself.
I know that your wedding photography is one of the most important aspects of the day, after all, the photographs last a lifetime. I’m excited to offer a range of wedding packages that I hope will meet with different requirements. My all day packages for 2017 start from £1200 and include a full day’s coverage (getting ready through to the first dance), post processing of your images and a secure online gallery.
Hayley is so talented. She captured our wedding day perfectly and helped to cement memories of our big day in faultless style. Hayley instilled a sense of confidence from our first meeting, through our engagement shoot and on the day itself. By the end of the day she felt like part of the family! The bespoke albums are truly beautiful – made to be treasured (and they come with their own posh handbag!) Thanks so much, Sam and Luke x
