Beautiful reportage wedding photography in the South West : AVA Images
2012 West Country Wedding Award finalists AVA Images pride themselves on beautifully capturing natural, fleeting, spontaneous moments at very affordable prices.
Comprising three skilled professional photographers, Hannah, Nick and Emma, AVA Images have been offering high-quality, creative and contemporary wedding photography in Devon and the South West for the past four years.
Between them, these passionate and friendly professionals share over 30 years of photographic experience, and have presented hundreds of happy couples with timeless, artistic wedding photos to treasure for a lifetime.
AVA Images take an unobtrusive, modern approach to wedding photography, and work hard to quickly compose and creatively capture every last detail of the day. Hannah, Nick and Emma will spend most of their time seamlessly blending in with guests in order to achieve natural, spontaneous and personal photographs that faithfully reflect the true atmosphere of the occasion, whilst still managing to fit in those all-important traditional group shots.
This informal, documentary style of wedding photography succeeds in removing the barrier between photographer and subject, and the beneficial effect of this is amplified when certain shots are captured with a long-lens camera, meaning that the ongoing dynamics of the day will remain entirely unchanged.
Using top-end professional software, all images are then carefully edited in AVA’s studio in rural Kingsteignton, resulting in fresh, crisp, romantic images that beautifully narrate the story of the day.
Exceptional personal service
The direction which you would like your wedding photography to take really comes down to you. For your final album, perhaps you would like a majority of posed group shots? Or perhaps you would prefer an emphasis on AVA’s trademark reportage-style photos? During several pre-wedding consultations, this attentive team will give you the opportunity to express exactly what you would like them to provide.
AVA Images will visit your chosen venue with you well before the big day, allowing you to discuss in depth your formal shots, arrange where you would like your group photos to be taken, and establish which package best suits your requirements and your budget. These pre-wedding meetings (all included in the package price) will also enable you to grow comfortable with both the photographers and the camera, so you’ll feel a lot more relaxed on the day!
Full copyright to every image
Just two weeks after the date of your wedding, this highly efficient photographic studio will send you a high-resolution CD containing all of your photographs along with full copyright to each and every one. These images are also conveniently uploaded to a ‘private only’ gallery for your friends and family to view.
Simple packages at competitive prices
As part of the basic AVA package, Hannah will attend and shoot your wedding singlehandedly. If you are holding a larger celebration, or simply desire additional perspectives, angles and lenses, then you will be able to add on the services of AVA’s other highly capable photographers, Nick and Emma.
AVA Images offer a range of packages in order to accommodate varying budgets and requirements. All options include your pre-wedding consultation, editing, colour-correction, a CD of high-resolution images, an online viewing gallery, a 10”x8” photo-book containing all of your images which comprehensively encapsulates the day, together with a 12”x16” photo of your choice printed on canvas.
To put it into simpler terms, AVA’s packages vary in price depending on how much coverage you would like, ranging from £900 for your ceremony through to the wedding breakfast, all the way up to £1,300 for comprehensive coverage of your entire wedding day.
“I was so happy with AVA Images and have recommended Hannah to several friends – she is even flying out to Malta for my cousin’s wedding next year! Professional, unobtrusive, brilliant value for money (about half the price of other photographers we looked at) and absolutely no ‘naff’ shots; just good quality, simple and beautiful images of our day.”
“AVA Images photographed our wedding day in a brilliantly creative and completely unobtrusive manner. Their real asset was capturing the ‘moments’ of our wedding day, from the dressing of the bride in the morning right through to the evening dancing. They had a knack of capturing us and our guests at our most natural. They also took time to photograph the little details of the day, such as the cake decorations, floral displays and speech notes. The result is a wedding album which perfectly encapsulates the best day of our lives!”
“Fabulous photos, with loads of natural shots – just how we wanted them, in fact better than we ever hoped. AVA provided a really friendly and attentive service and the photo-book we ended up with was simply stunning. I would highly recommend AVA to anyone!”
With a focus on all the little details, South West wedding photographers AVA Images skilfully capture natural beauty and spontaneous moments in order to tell a true story of the day. With the utmost attention to customer satisfaction, these talented professionals are committed to delivering supreme personal service from the very first consultation right through to their efficient presentation of the final pictures.
