Welcome to bigdayphotographer.co.uk – my name is David Vidgen and I am an wedding photographer in Birmingham who specialises in documentary weddings at grand venues such historic castles, spectacular churches and large hotels.
I believe that I have the best job in the world, I love photography and for me capturing one of the happiest days of peoples’ lives is a true privilege and one that I do not take lightly. As a consequence I strive to capture some breathtaking pictures which are then illustrated in one of the worlds finest wedding albums.
As an expert wedding photographer I am able to work quickly and quietly, taking beautiful pictures effortlessly and without causing disruption or concern for any guests or wedding party members. Being discreet means that I can capture individuals when they are relaxed and enjoying the moment. Of course, I do take the formal stuff, but most images are in documentary style, capturing the day as it unfolds rather than being a bossy photographer and trying to direct the day.
My wedding package is tailored to give complete piece of mind with no hidden extras:
- A pre-wedding photoshoot lasting approx 2 hours
- All day coverage on your wedding day – unlike all other photographers I do no specify time limits
- Fun ‘Mug Shot Booth’ to capture guests in a fun and quirky manner – this is then edited to create a large print
- 16″ x 12″ premium leather Jorgensen Album
- Complimentary Print or Canvas
- Hi resolution files on DVD at no extra cost
Total Cost with no hidden extras £1550
The purpose of this is to ensure that both you and your partner are comfortable round me and the camera. It is important that your wedding day is not the first time we work together, so the 2 hr advance session is perfect for easing any stress or anxiety. You also get some really great professional portraits of you both.
“The most important thing for me, is for you to be happy and ensure that you have the images you desire.”
All Day Coverage
When you book me, you hire me for the entire day – at your complete disposal. If you want pictures of the bride on the morning preparing for the big occasion, these can be done. The same applies to you wanting the first dance captured, this can be done regardless of the time it takes place. The most important thing for me, is for you to be happy and ensure that you have the images you desire.
Mug Shot Booth
Traditionally, obtaining one large group shot featuring all the guests present on your wedding day is painstaking and often very stressful for the bride and groom. individuals are never where you want them – and although you would like everyone present, others don’t necessary share your enthusiasm or the importance to be involved in such a shot (even with a £60 per head, wedding breakfast on offer!). A fun alternative (normally after the speeches) is to have a small area of your wedding reception venue assigned for individuals and groups to come and have their portrait pictures taken (I call this a mug shot booth). All the pictures are then collated to form one large print or canvas of all persons present on your day (not just those at the ceremony).
