About One Fine Day


Information about One Fine Day Northern Ireland Wedding Photographer specialising in relaxed documentary style wedding photography.

My name's Rich and I'm very happily married to the amazingly lovely Averil, and we're lucky to be able to call the awesome city of Belfast home. Av is the brains of the operation and manages a lot of the day to day running of things so I can concentrate on taking photographs.

Thank you a million times over for everything you’ve done for us, my bridal party cannot get over how much fun you added to the morning whilst keeping it relaxed and you carried this throughout the whole day for us. The photos speak for themselves . . . I’m so glad we found you and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you - in fact we’ve already done so many times!
— Claire & Richard

I get a genuine thrill out of observing a seemingly normal scene and composing an interesting image, and most of all I love capturing interaction between people, to show the subjects character in completely un-posed and candid images which I really hope comes across in the work that I produce.

 Northern Ireland Wedding Photographer

My approach to photography is really simple; to tell the story of your day using pictures, from the perspective of a guest. I'm not a traditional wedding photographer; I don't do the whole awkward posing thing, This doesn't mean that I won't take a few group photographs and some nice images of you as a couple, just that I like to make this only a very small part of what I do on the day; I don't want to drag you away from the action for too long.

Weddings are such an amazing occasion, because your big day has it all; emotion, fun, elegance, pride, family, relationships, joy, excitement and above all happiness - and this is exactly what I strive to capture in the pictures that I will take for you, because this is the stuff that really matters (well, at least I think so!)

You blended seamlessly in to our day with family and friends and right from the first time we met you we both felt so at ease . . . you captured the real emotion of the day, pure candid joy!
— Catherine & Paddy

I think that the most important thing about being a wedding photographer (aside from the obvious) is to be able to really interact with people and become just another guest. People are what makes each wedding unique, it’s all about the people. I’m fascinated by human interaction and the relationships between people, and love to really get involved so that I can be close to the action and photograph everything as it happens with no intervention from me at all.

You have us crying Rich! The photos are absolutely amazing. We can’t thank you enough!

PRICING

We like to keep things as simple as possible and prefer not confuse things with loads of complicated “packages” and options. All good stories have a beginning, a middle and an end - so we offer coverage of everything that happens on your wedding day as standard;

  • Me and my cameras at your wedding, taking pictures for you all day long from hairspray and make up to dance floor shenanigans anywhere on the Island of Ireland (a wedding that requires a plane or a boat may be a tiny bit more!)

  • A collection of personally edited and post-processed photographs of the day delivered on a custom USB; everything in high resolution ready to print with no restrictions or watermarks. Usually around 500 but there are no limits, you will receive what I shoot - minus the blinks and bizarre split second facial expressions in the middle of laughter!

  • A password protected online gallery of all of your images for you to share with friends and family, also in high resolution with no restriction on printing so that you won’t get hassled for photos by your Aunties.

The price for a full day’s coverage as described above is £1595.

If you would like a different level of coverage, reduced hours for a smaller low key wedding or even including a second day or two if you're heading away somewhere special to get married, then please get in touch for a bespoke quote.

Albums

We offer beautiful albums, hand made in Yorkshire and designed to your specification. There is nothing quite like seeing your pictures in print, especially as almost all pictures are now viewed with a fleeting swipe of a tiny screen. The choice to add an album is totally up to you, and you can make an order at any time - no big sales pitches here! Albums start from just £275, and can all be done online using our order form.

Irish wedding photographer destinations Europe

Travel

If you're having your wedding somewhere that involves a trip on a plane or boat I may have to charge a bit extra to get there. This will include travel on said boat/plane and a stay at B&B the night before to make sure that I'm fresh and ready to work hard for you on the morning of your wedding - but don't panic; I'm easily pleased and don't expect to be staying at The Ritz, all I need is a clean bed and I will do my utmost to keep costs to an absolute minimum with everything agreed up front with no surprises!

Anything else!

If you have something a bit different or special in mind for your wedding, like sneakily shooting an engagement, covering a stag or hen party or maybe a couple of day's worth of celebrations please let me know and I will do my very best to accommodate you! Click here to get in touch with me.

Frequently asked questions about Northern Ireland Wedding Photographer One Fine Day

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do you travel?

Absolutely! I travel all over the UK and Ireland to shoot weddings – and am more than happy to hop on a plane or boat and come abroad with you too. Travel costs throughout Northern Ireland and the majority of the Republic of Ireland are included within the price quoted on my website. If you are looking to go further afield don't let this put you off, I keep travel expenses to an absolute minimum . . . get in touch and we can have a chat with no obligation whatsoever.

Do you shoot group shots?

Of course I do! We don't really feature too many traditional group shots on our website as pictures of your family all lined up smiling aren’t that interesting to people who don’t know them , but I realise how important these images can be. If you would like group shots it's no problem just let me know and I will happily oblige. I find that it’s best to stick to around 6 different groupings, and it would also be really handy if I could borrow a Best Man, Usher or Bridesmaid at this point of the dayto gather up the guests that you would like in the shots. Some couples don’t feel the need for traditional group shots though, so don’t feel like it’s a must.

Do you have a second photographer or assistant with you?

I do prefer to work alone and can cover pretty much all eventualities by myself, every single image on this site was taken by little old me. I specialise in candid, documentary photography and it’s a bit more difficult to get those natural, relaxed, un-posed shots of you and your guests when there's two photographers, and all of the images will have a consistency about them with one pair of eyes! I often cover both parties on the morning of the wedding if you’re close enough together, however if you guys are getting ready a bit further apart in the morning and would like images from both this may necessitate a second photographer, and I will have to pay them! Where this is the case I will simply charge you what I pay the second shooter and nothing more, usually around £150-£300 depending on the requirements.

Can we print our photographs?

Absolutely, please do! Every image you will receive is in high resolution and ripe for printing, they are your photos and I would love you to put them on display. I always say that the experience of looking through printed photographs is much nicer than scrolling through a Facebook album or swiping at an iPhone - there's no contest.

Do you have backup equipment?

Yep, I usually bring at least three cameras with me to a wedding, with a selection of lenses and a bag full of other bits and pieces. I shoot using at least two main cameras at all times, with another spare waiting in the wings just in case. I’m not taking any chances with your wedding photographs and if the worst happens and a camera breaks on your wedding day I am able to roll with the punches and continue as if nothing's happened.

Okay, we’ve looked through your pictures, browsed through your blog and think that we might want you to shoot our wedding day. What happens now?

Brilliant, thank you very much! First things first though, get in touch with us to see if your date is available, and tell us a little bit about what you are planning. 

Once you’ve been in touch we can meet up for a chat and a look at some albums if you’d like, I would love to tell you more about what I do and ask you all about your big day. Ask me anything you like at any time, if you’re both happy to go ahead we just need a signed contract and a £250 booking fee to hold your date, as soon as we're all signed up the date is yours and the countdown begins!

Then you’re all booked in, it’s as easy as that.
