Nick Ray Photography | Information



Wedding Photography Prices

I don't have a huge range of confusing packages. I just come and photograph your wedding and you get a load of lovely photographs afterwards. It's normally around 500 photographs, all individually edited and hosted in an online private gallery. You are free to print and share the full size high-resolution photos with family and friends without restriction.

I arrive at least two hours before the ceremony for the bridal preparations and to have a good look around the venue if I don't already know it. I'll stay until 9pm which usually gives me plenty of time to get some great shots of the evening party in full swing, and if the party is going to be truly epic my coverage can be extended until later in the evening!


Prices start from 1850

I was honoured to be a regional finalist at this year's Wedding Industry Awards. If I'm honest I'm not really an 'awards' type person, but a few of my couples were kind enough to nominate me, so of course I had to enter! 

It would be easy to cherry-pick a few select quotes, but here are the un-edited comments in full from all the lovely couples who nominated me for my work at their weddings over the last year. 

“From our first meeting I knew Nick was the photographer for us. He has an incredible talent to really capture the day and the photos enable me to relive the day so easily as it plays out like a story through his photographs. Nick really understood what we wanted to achieve and worked seamlessly with our venue staff and videographer. His communication was timely, professional and his website very informative and he fitted into the day with ease.” 

Why did you book Nick?

“After chatting with Nick for a while we really felt he understood what we wanted to achieve and his photos of other people's weddings were so incredible I started to feel like I had been there on the day myself. Nick was initially over the budget we had set ourselves and so we decided to look for other photographers but despite looking for some time none compared to him and we found ourselves coming back to his site time and time again and realised we couldn't get married without Nick being there to capture it! Nick's email correspondence was timely & professional and we had no doubt he would do an incredible job and we were right! Thank you so very much Nick" 

Emma and Tom


“Nick was fantastic, he captured our day in the natural way we were after. We did not want too may posed photographs. There were some beautiful shots which captured the emotion and told the story of our special day - the pictures made us both cry when we first saw them. Nick was very professional, friendly and managed to navigate his was through our crowd of guests un-noticed. Thank you so much for being part of our wedding, making us feel at ease and creating fabulous images for us to treasure”

Chloe and Andrew


Nick made our day!! It was like there were 3 of us getting married, he shared the stress and coordinated everyone perfectly - even on the hottest day of the year!!!” 

Why did you book Nick? 

“Style, reviews and instant welcoming, positive attitude.” 

Suzannah and Geof


“Couldn't have asked for anything more from Nick, he was truly fantastic! It was really important to my husband and I that we had lots of pictures that captured the day rather than formal pictures and they were absolutely brilliant.” 

Why did you book Nick? “Great photographs on his website” Hayley and James


“Prior to booking Nick, he met with us in person to talk through our wedding day. He understood the kind of look to our photographs that we wanted to achieve. He was professional, reliable, helpful and friendly. He flew out to Ibiza with time to include a complimentary photo shoot before our big day, which helped us to feel more at ease and was also a lovely experience for myself and my now husband. The photos Nick took have captured our day perfectly and given us memories to cherish.” 

Why did you book Nick? “We liked the soft romantic images he produced, giving the feeling that they weren't staged in anyway and were very natural.” Sarah and Paul


“Nick was wonderful on the day, not in any way intrusive and felt like a member of the family! His photographs are stunning - use of light and focus especially.” 

Why did you book Nick? “His reportage style photography and liked his calm manner when contacted him. Some wedding photographers can be a bit manic!!!” Isabella and Justin


“Jack and I were absolutely blown away with our photos that Nick took from our special day. The pictures he got of us were breath-taking, simply stunning. He also really captured the essence of the whole day by photographing our wedding guests as they were enjoying our day and not when they are posing. These provided us with such beautiful memories of not only us but of our dearest family and friends enjoying our day. We can't thank Nick enough for the pictures he has produced - Brilliant!” 

Why did you book Nick? “I saw Nick's website and the previous work he had done which was absolutely wonderful. On meeting Nick, it was clear he was the perfect person to capture all the memories from our day. His style was unobtrusive which has allowed him to capture really natural photos 'in the moment'. On sharing out pictures with our closest family and friends they have all said "These are the best wedding pictures I have seen, simply beautiful". A few of our friends that are currently engaged have also asked for Nick's details to photograph their wedding!” Yasmin and Jack


“Nick really listened to what we wanted, and the photos were really natural. When sun was setting, Nick grabbed the two of us for a quick last shoot to make the most of the light, and those impromptu photos were the best of the day - he is very good at grabbing the chance to take an amazing picture. The photos were free for our guests to download (no watermarks). Nick also sent us a beautifully wrapped box of prints.

Why did you book Nick? “We wanted the focus of the photographs to be on the people, the friends and family and the overall feel of the day. We liked the style and presentation of his work more than comparable photographers, and when we messaged him to enquire about price he was very prompt and polite. The price was within our budget so we met with him for a chat about his approach and what we wanted. He was really nice and relaxed, so we made the decision to book him directly after the meeting.” Mary and Alexis


“Nick was professional, punctual and friendly and a pleasure to work with. We loved Nicks style and managed all of our requirements brilliantly on the day and our photos capture all situations and angles to really tell the story of the day. We received a pre slideshow from Nick which was a great gift and taster of the pictures to come. We loved our final pictures, the style, quality, balance of guest photos, settings and the golden hour pictures are beautiful! We'd definitely recommend him!” 

Why did you book Nick? “We didn't think that anybody else's pictures compared to Nicks, we loved his style and quality and once we met him he was very friendly and had an impressive portfolio.” Jennie and Tim


“From the moment we contacted Nick he was fantastic - he's got a great personality and is very approachable. I've been to a number of weddings and I've seen how people can be treated by photographers. Nick's approach - much like his photographic work - was nothing short of awesome. He knew what he needed to do to get the shots and he was excellent at conveying that to us. We were *really* impressed with the way he handled family shots (with a couple of toddlers in some of them) and he was fun” 

Why did you book Nick? “I thought his photographs looked stunning; far better than anything else I'd seen on any other website. This guy is amazing at capturing light. The photos he took (both indoors and out) really were exceptional; the venue we chose had tricky lighting (lighting on walls rather than overhead, shadows, odd shaped windows). Anyone not really knowing how to really manage light couldn't have got the range of tones that Nick got. One such example was how he captured shafts of light coming through a window (to the point where you can almost see the particles of dust in the air) without compromising any other qualities of the space (the colour of the carpet, of the wallpaper, of the lights on the walls. It was absolutely breathtaking and he took photos like this many, many times over the day. From looking at his site I originally thought he was going to be a good photographer, so I had very high expectations. Nick absolutely blew past those expectations in every sense; we couldn't have been happier with his work.” Amanda and Alex


“We found Nick online. My husband is an IT Director and was immediately impressed with his work. The way Nick shoots light made him the perfect photographer for our winter wedding in a dark beamed reception. He responded to my request immediately, and even joined us singing carols during our light hearted wedding service The finished photos were presented beautifully and our wedding was featured in The Times. Nick is great. He made our day and continues to do so everyday I look at the photos.” 

Why did you book Nick? “His talent coupled with his great personality. Having nick at our wedding was like having an extra member of the family for the day. his passion for his job showed through hence he was still on the dance floor long after he should have left. We will always be thankful he was able to shoot our wedding.” Julia and Stuart


“Having Nick Ray as our wedding photographer has been an absolute pleasure. From the initial face-to-face meeting to discuss our vision of the wedding and how the photography can capture it, through his un-intrusive and self-sufficient approach, to the delivery of the finished photos, we were deeply impressed and had our expectations exceeded. His ability to capture emotions and feelings resulted in stunning photos that tell a story and capture the wedding in a most natural and beautiful way.” 

Why did you book Nick? “Having carried out our research into a number of photographers, it was the timeless and evocative nature of his photos and his thorough and professional approach that set Nick apart from the rest. Nick was very efficient in getting back to our initial inquiry, and an informal face-to-face meeting at our home allowed us to discuss our vision for the wedding and to get to know Nick personally before the big day.” Carolyn and Alex


“We knew we'd found our photographer as soon as we spoke to Nick on Skype. We loved the natural, light-infused style of his photography and felt comfortable with his friendly, straightforward, accommodating and honest approach. His manner put us both at ease on the big day and our guests barely noticed him. The photographs of our wedding are stunning but what we love most is the way Nick captured the emotion of our wonderful loved ones; this is priceless for us and brings back amazing memories.” 

Why did you book Nick? “Professional and stunning quality photographs and easy to work with” Padi and Tom


“Nick Ray has a distinctive style of capturing the moments. He likes to blend into the crowd and take photos from afar. You don't really notice him taking photos and at times wonder if there is even a photographer about but the results are the results are natural photos of special moments that are beautifully captured. People in the photos are very relaxed and natural.” 

Why did you book Nick? “We decided to go with Nick based on the recommendation from our professional photographer friends and also from the pictures that were shown on the website. When we did met him for the first consultation, we brought along some new albums he had just recently done for previous couples which won my partner over instantly.” Tristan and Andreas


“Nick was just fantastic. He was so friendly and relaxed on the day everyone else relaxed. Most of the time I honestly didn't see him! The photos are beyond what we could have wished for. So natural, touching moments and really captured the essence and vibe of the day. Nick also found some really unusual setups, my husband and I in what looked like a field to me, made to look like the Scottish highlands (to the delight of my Scottish husband in his kilt!). Everyone says how beautiful they are.” 

Why did you book Nick? “After googling so very many photographers Nicks previous work stood out as beautiful but more importantly natural and seemed to capture the feel of the day not just who was there.” Emma and Pete


“Nick was a hugely calming influence on the morning of the wedding. He has an effortless style which allowed to him to capture beautiful shots of our wedding without ever feeling like he was in the way. He listened carefully to all our requirements and found a way to weave every one of them into our photos. The final icing on the cake was the beautiful little box with some prints in - every bit as bridal as you would expect - Perfect!” 

Why did you book Nick? “His portfolio was excellent” Saira and Simson


“Nick is a great guy! We chose him because he exuded a quiet and calm confidence and produced beautiful work. Nick is a fascinating chap with a varied background and we felt this made him stand out as someone who can handle any situation!

Nick Was a real pleasure to work with and we are so grateful for his effortless support and guidance on our big day.” 

Why did you book Nick? “Nick instantly understood what we wanted from our big day and was supportive and had a genuine 'can do' attitude. We instantly clicked with his steady happy nature and trusted him to produce beautiful photos.” Erin and Neil


“Nick was fantastic on the day and my wife and I are delighted - and relieved - that he perfectly captured what was an awesome and fun wedding. We are both quite laid-back and relatively last minute people, and Nick was the perfect balance of non-intrusive and gently coercive. He ensured we got what we wanted, but left us free to enjoy the day. We were confident he had good shots, but when we got the pictures we realised he'd done an amazing job. I would recommend Nick without hesitation. Top guy” 

Why did you book Nick? “I searched for a London wedding photographers, and sifted through a number of sites before contacting a handful. Nick's was one of these, and - having a met a couple of others - we decided we liked him and his portfolio best. I also liked that he was up front about his pricing.” Corinne and Vernon


“Nick was so helpful and kind at my wedding, I love his style and his quick understanding in what I wanted.” 

Why did you book Nick? “His taste and style really stand out among other photographers” Charlotte and Richard


“We booked Nick on the recommendation from another photographer, and we could not have been more pleased with the resulting images from our day. We took great confidence from images on his website of previous weddings he had shot. His photography style is just what we were looking for, and having a second photographer on the day meant that we had everything covered. Nick's attitude to the day was fantastic. He blended in so well and managed to capture so many fantastic moments that we otherwise wouldn't have been able to see. We are thrilled with our photos, which we continue to find new surprises in each time we have a look through them. We are so glad we booked a photographer with great experience and a unique style to capture our day.” 

Why did you book Nick? “Please see my other comment above which I think covers everything!” Alex and Chris


“Nick surpassed our expectations. He was a friendly, calm person and easy to talk with before, during and after the Wedding. He took documentary-style photos which was just what we wanted. The finished photos are amazing. We have printed them all (at least 500 of them) at least three times each and shared with friends and family. We bought a photo album which was hand-delivered to our house by Nick and is so special to us. The photos encapsulate the day in an extraordinary way.” 

Why did you book Nick? “We loved his website & his portfolio” Victoria and David


“We were so delighted with the photos that Nick captured of our wedding day. We initially booked after meeting at a wedding show. We loved how candid and natural his portfolio photos looked. We are absolutely amazed that he managed to take so many beautiful shots on the day and we hardly even noticed he was there. We loved his documentary style shots and his use of natural light. We could not be happier with the lifelong memories we now have the most wonderful day of our lives thanks to Nick.” 

Why did you book Nick? “We loved the wedding portfolio photos that we saw before booking Nick for our wedding. He is very professional, friendly and was great to work with.” Kate and Phil


“Many of our guests and particularly our family commented on how brilliant Nick was at gathering people in a timely and organised manner to get the best photos just ahead of the rain. Communication leading up to the day was brilliant and his website, booking form and FAQs were everything I needed. On the day he made us relax and smile and got the most natural looking photos that I didn't think I was capable of doing! After the wedding in just over 1 month our photos were available online to share” 

Why did you book Nick? “Ahead of the day we spoke with Nick with some ideas we had in mind as my horse was attending the venue. I am absolutely thrilled with these artistic shots of us with the horse and these made for impressive thank you cards! He came to us with more ideas that were just fab and I'm so grateful” Kim and Tim


“Nick was a perfect fit. We had a relaxed style wedding with the reception in our garden. We fully decorated the garden with fairy lights, bunting, flowers, hay bales, a fish and chip van, a sweetie cart and our very own pub shed. Nick captured every single little detail of the day and the photos truly show the story of our special day. Nick was also fantastic at hiding in the background and taking photos without people even noticing. The detail and special moments captured by Nick were amazing!” 

Why did you book Nick? “He was highly recommended and his portfolio matched the style of photos we were hoping for!” Lauren and Nathan


“Nick really impressed us at the wedding show with his photos and his friendly presence. It was really important to me to have a photographer who would capture the true essence of the day, rather than just stage lots of group shots and this was exactly what Nick was able to do. On the day, he was professional and fun to work with, he understood the delicate balance between natural and posed photos and as a result he was able to really capture the emotions of the day. Simply stunning!” 

Why did you book Nick? “Because his portfolio was beautiful and he was so friendly and helpful I just knew I didn't want anybody else to photograph our wedding day!” Abby and Rich


“Nick is an extremely competent and creative photographer. He looked for the right shots that we would want but without disturbing the flow of the day to get them. Throughout the engagement and wedding shoots, Nick communicated really well providing advise and clear information on what would happen. I am so pleased with the the photos from both our engagement shoot and wedding, they capture the moments perfectly and really show us as a couple as we are. Really pleased we booked Nick.”

“Nick not only understood exactly what the vision was for our wedding, he understood us, and that is evident in every single photo. He captured the love, joy and fun that filled the day. We knew we were in the safest of hands. Nick was also very calming to have around when we were getting ready. Fitting in so perfectly but totally out of the way, and keeping me calm and everything fun and light-hearted. We just loved working with him and my brother has since worked with him too!”

Then, when I met Nick he was so calm and easy to be around that I knew we had to work with him on our special day. A true professional of the highest standard and a wonderful guest too.” Carrie and Andi


“Nick's photos were great at story-telling and capturing the magical moments. He was great at guiding us two who were not very comfortable in front of the camera, yet the photos were still very natural. He was very accommodating with all our requests - when we asked for something he would take the trouble to research for us and picked the most beautiful spots in line with our requirements. He was also very fast in getting the photos ready as he knew how difficult it is to wait for the photos!” 

Why did you book Nick? “We saw his portfolio and was very impressed with his work. Also we felt that his price was reasonable" Hilda and Quain


“We were particularly impressed by Nick's photojournalist style, he was greatly observant and captured many natural reactions and emotions of us and our guests. Nick was also an excellent storyteller and it made him stood out from other wedding photographers, especially when there were thousands of things happened in your wedding, you would definitely appreciate the smooth flow and touching details in your wedding photos, which would remind you how beautiful your big day was, years after years.” 

Why did you book Nick? “After the first meeting with Nick, we found him the right one in regards of style (both working and shooting). The communication between us was smooth and efficient too. When you have to deal with so many suppliers for your wedding, you definitely would love to work with those who make you feel comfortable, and that helped to take off loads of stress with your to-do list.” Sylvia and Viola
