Zara Davis - Gloucestershire Wedding Photographer




I’ll tell you a story of my first time photographing a wedding right after graduating from university. I had one camera, no backups, no flash, and zilch experience. If anything had gone wrong on the day that was it. It was a friends wedding so the pressure was on but can you imagine if my camera had broken? Their most important day lost forever and the end of the friendship possibly!

So over the years, I invested too. I bought backup cameras, various lenses, 3 sets of lighting systems, multiple memory cards and numerous batteries. I made sure I have the correct insurance, spent an eye-watering sum on lots and lots of training so I could continually improve my skill set as well as all the latest software. My ultimate goal was and is, to provide the best service with lots of little surprises to make it an extra special experience for you. I still invest in training and equipment upgrades so I can continue to offer the best so you feel comfortable and reassured.

Common worries...

I want you both to absolutely have the best day possible with no stress and that starts right here.

Can I afford you?

I purposely keep a low deposit to help couples when booking me to help ease any anxieties. The balance also is not due until just before the wedding and I'm more than happy to discuss payment plans if it helps.

What if it rains?

Rain can be absolutely amazing for photographs along with fog and snow. It's rare that it rains heavily for hours and hours at a time so we can nip outside in between showers or when it's just a bit of drizzle. I also keep a load of umbrellas in my car as a backup.

Will the day turn into a photoshoot?

I'm a blend-in type of photographer so for the majority of the time, you won't know I'm there. I do recommend scheduling time in your day for important portraits and group photos but we can talk about this beforehand so it won't take too long. For sunset and golden hour photographs, we'll need to set some time aside just before sunset to get those golden images for you.

I'm nervous about being photographed

Funnily enough - me too! So I can completely understand your fears. I've worked with a lot of couples and families over the years and it's a very common type of anxiety to have. I'm more than happy to show you some poses and can go through them in person if you like.

Do you offer discounts?

I currently offering a discount in conjunction with Lynne Jessett Floristry. If you book us both for your wedding, you'll get a 2.5% discount from each of us

Can I buy an album?

If you've booked the premium package, an album comes as standard.
I can provide a detailed list of sizes and prices of albums on request.

What kind of gear do you use?

I shoot with two full-frame Sony Mirrorless cameras with various prime and zoom lenses and accessories. My second photographer will also have a similar set-up themselves, so we're all covered for any eventuality!

Do I have to order prints through you?

With my top two packages, some prints will be included.

The option for purchasing further prints is available within your private gallery. I offer the highest quality prints available on the market today and you are also free to order elsewhere if you so choose.

How many photos will I get?

It completely varies on the variables but there's a minimum of 500 for a standard full-day wedding. The majority of the time it’s a lot more than that.

When will I get my photos back?

I aim to get all photos onto your password protected online gallery 6 weeks after your wedding date. During the busier part of the season this may extend by a week or two. I'll usually pop over a text or social media message to let you know when the link has been sent to you.

Do I need to feed you?

It would be very gratefully received if I'm working 10-12 hour days as carrying food is extra 'luggage' for me to bring along with lots of camera gear and lighting. Plus as I travel for weddings, I don't always have the ability to be able to prepare food myself that will keep me going all day.
Saying that, I'm not going to force you and I don't need the same food as your guests as most places have a bar menu or I can pop off site for an hour or so to get food myself.

What is the booking process?

The booking process involves a deposit fee of £250 to secure the date and a signed contract. I always encourage my couples to read through the contract first and ask any questions. From there, we’ll arrange to get together at the wedding venue and go through the day's itinerary.

Do you shoot destination weddings?

I do! The Sapphire package includes travel and accommodation for Europe. For the rest of the world, please let me know where and I'll get a quote together for you.

How far do you travel?

All over! If you are in the UK, the Emerald package would suit you. If you are getting married in Europe, the Sapphire package will suit you.
