The pre-wedding “Engagement Shoot” is an excellent opportunity for us to get to know each other a bit before your big day. This can take place either in my studio, or at an outside more natural location, in a park or at the reception venue for instance, we can take some of the romantic shots of you both, kind of like a preview of the big day to see what works for you, and what you are happy with.
I find that if we get to know each other a bit before the big day, I am a recognised face rather than a stranger turning up at your wedding to photograph you. You will already know a bit about me, and likewise I will know a bit about you. Additionally it may help to relieve any possible camera shy anxieties about having your picture taken. It really is a lot less painful than it may seem. We hang out for a while, I take a few photos, and we have a chat about how your wedding plans are going.
By the time we finish you will feel a lot more comfortable about being in front of my camera. You never know, you may even enjoy it.
You will receive all of the edited pictures from the Pre Wedding Shoot to download via our online password protected gallery.
You could also use a pre-wedding shoot to create a totally different slant on the wedding guest book. Instead of the traditional book why not choose your favorite photograph from the shoot, mounted in a frame with an extra wide mount, your guests write their messages on the mount.
I do not supply wedding albums as part of our package, having taken the decision to separate the cost of Photography and the cost of Wedding Albums.
I do this because lots of couples prefer to control the costs, and have the option of creating a Wedding Album themselves. In order to do this, what they need is perfectly edited images, which is exactly what Popeye Photography will provide.
FYI - I take shooting a clients wedding very seriously, I will NOT take on any photo-shoots for the week prior to the wedding, (just in case equipment accidents ect) I will also NOT take any photo-shoot or other wedding, for the two weeks after your wedding. (this time is for me to fully focus on editing your wedding photographs) For your wedding, I dedicate up to three weeks of my time.
The wedding package I offer is
simple and straightforward,
full coverage is £995.00

Julie Elliott 5/5 Big thank you to Carl & Denise for capturing our day perfectly. Their vision produced some beautiful photos, they didn't stop all day, hardest working photographers I've ever seen, thanks again Carl and Denise, love Steve and Julie
Hannah Smith 5/5 Thank you so much for being there on our special day! You're both so lovely and made everyone feel so comfortable!! I will totally recommend you to everyone I know xxxxx
Keith Archer 5/5 I would just like to say on behalf of me and my New Bride Samantha Jane Archer that we are very grateful to Carl for stepping in and taking these beautiful Wedding Pictures for us on 2nd August 2014. He is a great friend and a great photographer with a lot of passion. He also has a great eye for catching that special moment and i would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a photographer for weddings, prom nights or any other occasions... Thank you again Carl for all the hours you put in to produce these lovely photos.
Rikki Kelly 5/5 Having used popeye photography for our newborn shoot there was no doubt who we wanted to capture our wedding day. Having now seen the photos I am so glad we did. The photos are outstanding with Carl showing a real knack for catching the important moments whilst also capturing ourselves and our guests at all the best moments without them even realising. My wife commented how easy Carl made the entire bridal party feel whilst capturing them in the morning without invading the occasion and he did a superb job of organising groups for shots quickly and effectively so as not to take up too much of their time whilst still capturing all the people we wanted. Carl was well organised ensuring he knew exactly what we wanted before the big day whilst also bringing his experience and own ideas to the table to help us capture all the key moments. If anyone is looking for a talented professional but approachable photographer look no further - I cannot recommend popeye photography enough.
Sophie Taylor 5/5 Actually had a fab time today doing our pre-wedding photo shoot , it was a bit awkward on the first photo especially with lots of people around us! But after the first photo we forgot about the people around us and was very comfortable with Carl's instructions, looking forward to doing it all for real on the day now....
Update - after doing a pre wedding photo shoot, it made it a lot easier on the day and took a lot of stress off us all as we all knew what we were doing and the places and poses we wanted to do, we were very happy with our wedding photos, so many to choose from our house is filled with them
Kayleigh Page 5/5 Well were do i start!!! What an Amazing Photographer!! We asked Carl to capture our engagement party. All I can say is WOW!!! Not only are the photos amazing, but he was so friendly and put everybody at ease!! .. Such a professional experience! He also had the photos uploaded and edited so fast! He is brilliant! Please everybody like and Share Popeye Photography's Page. He did an amazing job!! We highly recommend him!
Tom Page-Scutt 5/5 I had the privilege of having Popeye photography at my evening wedding reception last month and I couldn't have been more happy with what he managed to capture. He catches the real life moments when people aren't focusing on the camera which makes for some amazing authentic photos. He's always professional and is always brings a smile along with his camera. Pleasure to have at the wedding, myself and my wife are so pleased with the outcome.

Things to Consider when choosing a
Photographer for your Special Day
Please consider the following important components when you are choosing your photographer, as these factors obviously affect what photographers charge.
1: The photographer’s training and professional experience
2: The photographer’s costs, camera equipment investments, at least two of everything, insurance, top editing software and computers, website, and the fees, assistant fees on the day.
3: The time spent, post-production or editing is a very important factor that sets the real pros apart from the others. If the post-processing is carried out properly, this will add significant time to the job that your photographer is doing for you and in turn add quality to your images, this therefore affect the price considerably. The time your photographer will spend with you, during the preparations for your wedding and after as well as on the day – phone calls, emails, meetings, viewing sessions, creating online galleries, and slideshows…a typical wedding from consultation to presenting the photographs takes approximately fifty hours of the photographers time.
4: The photographer’s personal style, and the reputation that this has created for him/her
