What’s the damage?

The TL;DR is that I offer the same me on the day, same approach and products but with three different options for the number of hours covered.

The Unlimited Otoro Sashimi Service: £2000 /// Unlimited hours 

My photography style looks to tell an honest story of your wedding day so I ideally like to be around for the complete picture (*boom tsh*). I ask that hours are humane and I provide advice on the cut-offs where the coverage gets unnecessary/repetitive, but essentially I’m there from the morning banter until the dancefloor face plant. Weddings sometimes run late and having unlimited hours means you don’t have to stress about any surprise extra charges or your photographer disappearing before the first dance! Also, I shoot for a diverse range of couples- a wedding timeline in one culture can be very different to another culture, on principle I don’t penalise someone for being different!

The 7 hour Chūtoro Sashimi Service: £1700 /// Up to 7 hours 

This is ideal if you aren’t fussed about the morning getting ready bit OR the party bit, but you otherwise still want a pretty full story of your day.

The 5 hour Maguro Sashimi Service: £1000 /// Up to 5 hours

I’ve formally introduced this coverage level for off-peak London weddings only, after finding there were many couples having lovely civil ceremony and relaxed pub vibes and wanting memories of this time but nothing too hardcore! For an example of what I can provide in this timeframe, check out this London East Dulwich Tavern wedding.

Every single one of these delicious options comes with the following same same:

Unlimited number of photos

If there’s more hip happening at your wedding I want you to be able to see those memories. That’s why I don’t have a specific number of photos I deliver- I shoot what I see and I deliver what I shoot. You’ll get an unlimited number of artistically curated, edited, high resolution .jpgs on USBs

Printing rights for all

I want your guests to enjoy the photos just as much as you, so whoever you choose to share the photos with get the right to any personal use of the images. Basically, no extra costs for the G-Ma, yeay!

Print credit

I don’t know whether you’re viewing your photos on a PC, TV or phone, so to make sure you get to see some of your photos in the perfect colour it was meant to be viewed in, you also get £50 worth of prints. I’m a practical one so I let you choose the selection and print size.

Online gallery

To save you ripping and burning the USB, you’ll also get your own password protected gallery that allows you to easily share your photos with friends and family. Ideal for those who have loved ones abroad! It also acts as cloud storage for those more likely to lose things!

Sweet ass memories and everything else you missed!

One of my main missions as a wedding photographer is to document beyond the couple’s experience, showing you all the things that your friends were up to elsewhere in the room! I think weddings should be about love, laughter, friends and family, so my photos are filled with all of that!

Top notch blackmail material of your booziest friends and family!

Nuff said

Second shooter

Adding on a second shooter is ideal if you need:

Groom prep

Extra guest coverage


Ebi Tempura: £3000

I specialise in weekend long weddings- my documentary style gets you unique and hilarious photos of your loved ones when you book me for both the evening before and day after the main wedding day. Kind of like a documentary family portrait session and wedding photography rolled into one! Check out this wild party weddingJulie and Suzanne, Petia and Richard, and Cass and Chris to see the difference!

Every dish tastes better with a little bit of sauce for extra flavour! To really enjoy your photographs, getting them printed is so important… here is a selection of extras I provide that can make your wedding photographs sweeter.

Edamame beans (viewmaster + 3 reels of 7 3d photos): £125

Extra edamame beans: £30/extra reel of 7 photos

The Wedding Photographer’s Bucket List

In case you couldn’t tell already, I love things that are unique and off the beaten track. I became a photographer because it encourages me to chase something new and interesting all the time.

Therefore, I have a bucket list of things that I would love to experience and shoot. If your wedding includes any of these things, I will offer you an exclusive discount!

  • A pet in attendance Extra points if it’s a pig, llama or chicken, I’ve always wanted to own any of those animals. (Got a plethora of goats and chickens coming in 2015!)
  • Wedding car= DeLorean. Thanks Sam and Lloyd!!!
  • Underwater wedding (one for the scuba divers)
  • Dodgems!
