First of all, congratulations on your recent engagement! Secondly, thank you for taking the time to look over what it is we have to offer and see if we are right for you. Our aim is to be the easiest supplier you work with for your wedding, should you chose us. My style is relaxed and natural yet timeless and elegant, with a real high quality and luxury feel to the finished product. Professional equipment, a passion for the job, dedication to our clients, and an eye for detail, you can rest assured that we will deliver a service to be proud of at a cost that’s affordable. With two wedding packages available, there is something for everyone.
In an unobtrusive approach to your day, we will work with you to ensure that every expectation is met. They say you are supposed to look like you on your wedding day, but at your most beautiful; and that is exactly what I intend to create. With simple and creative direction, I intend to bring out the most natural version of you and showcase it in stunning imagery. Capturing candid and real moment shots, those intimate and emotional moments, or the funny ones you may not have planned. My job is to capture it all and retell your story again and again with images in the most honest and beautiful way.
All wedding packages require a 25% deposit and signed contract to secure your booking and price. No dates can be held without both of these. Each package includes a sit-down consultation with the photographer - ideally before you're booking - to get to know each other and what it is you want from your day, how we will achieve that, and discuss any questions you have, as well as an informal catch up nearer your wedding date (with as many emails or meet ups in-between as you want) and a 4 – 8 week delivery time on your completed photographs.
All packages will come with a select amount of high quality professionally edited images of your day on a personalised and engraved USB and presentation box with a license for personal use, as well as a private album on our website with a password for viewing. These can be shared amongst your family and friends. Copies, albums etc. can be ordered through Derek MacKinnon Photography at additional costs.
Based in Stornoway, we are available to travel through Lewis and Harris at no extra cost. All our packages include driving to and from locations, though drive time and party numbers may see some of the start and finish times vary. Travel to other areas within the Outer Hebrides will require travel and accommodation costs to be discussed with the client, but we are always flexible and will work with our clients to make sure things are as affordable as possible. Also available to work in and anywhere mainland Scotland or further afield. Any clients wishing to book us for services will also have to discuss travel and possible accommodation costs.
Mini Package £600
Our most refined package on offer, and ideal for couples wishing to elope or have a much more intimate wedding. You can trust on a professional and premium experience which we gather to last about four to five hours, capturing the most essential moments from your wedding day. The photographer starts his day at 12pm (or one hour before the ceremony start time) following the end of morning prep. The day will end after the formal photography shoots in mutually agreed upon locations, before the couple join their guests for their wedding breakfast. Driving time to locations, party numbers, and other time factors may see this alter but should not exceed 6 hours.
All members of the bridal party are photographed leaving for and arriving at the ceremony, the ceremony itself, and formal photographs after of the couple & their bridal party. From this package, you can expect to receive 50 - 200 high quality and professionally edited images.
All Inclusive Package £1,000
This all day package is our most inclusive, seeing the photographer starting his day around 10am to capture both of the couples morning preparations. In an unobtrusive manner, we can guarantee capturing the candid moments; truly detailing the excitement and emotions on the build-up to your wedding ceremony. The rest of the day will then consist of photographing the wedding ceremony, formal shoots, tossing of the bouquet should the bride wish, cutting of the cake and the first few dances.
A truly gold standard package that can be bespoke and tailored exactly to your individual needs and wedding (within reason). You can anticipate this to be a full day’s work consisting of 10 – 12 hours documenting the most important and memorable parts of your day. From this package, you can expect to receive up to 350 high quality professionally edited images.
Should the couple wish to have additional photographs taken of other family groups out with the immediate family, or any other group shots, these can be discussed at an
additional price and added on to the mini package. Price negotiation would take into consideration wedding party size and the additional time needed for these additional photographs.
Should an album wished to be purchased in addition to the inclusive USB, this can be discussed and an additional price negotiated as album prices can vary depending on
cover, size, photo finish, etc. This can be purchased at any time after the wedding and a deposit or payment may not required before hand.
