About and Pricing
My sincere thanks for visiting John Harper Photography. I'm a photographer based in Wiltshire, UK. For many years I’ve specialised in portrait, wedding and family photography. Utilising either my home studio, visiting clients or location shoots in the Wiltshire and Bath area, I strive to create natural looking images. My other passion is Street Photography, this and a Documentary Style is incorporated in my client shoots. I use Leica cameras and lenses exclusively in all my work, I believe this lends to a distinctive feel.
I understand that for most people having a camera lens pointing at them can be a daunting prospect, my aim is to ensure that you are as relaxed as possible, enabling me to capture the perfect photograph. A couple of reviews from wedding clients;
"Thank you so much John for such a memorable day and the fabulous photos (despite the rain) We are delighted with the results and very much enjoyed your relaxed style and company as did our guests. You managed to put us all at ease... Even the reluctant camera shy groom!

“John ... Wow !! Words cannot express how grateful I am to you ! From our first contact when speaking on the telephone, I knew you would just ‘get ‘ us !
I love every single image you have taken of our magical day!

For Portraits or Family Shoots; I charge by the hour and that is for the time that I spend with you, the client, taking photographs. Individual portraits can be charged by the half hour if required. I do not charge for travel or time spent in post-production. My Hourly Rate is £135. An average portrait session or family shoot takes around an hour and a half. I would expect to produce approx. 40 photos for you once processed. The images are then yours to keep and use as you wish. They will be presented to you via file transfer using an application such as Dropbox or if preferred a USB Stick. I’ve written a blog post concerning Family Shoots and it can be read here.
For Weddings: My style of photography is ideally suited to small, relaxed, intimate weddings. I’ve written about this documentary style in my blog here and also here . My aim is to capture images for you shortly before the ceremony, portraits or some of those off guard moments, the crucial parts of the ceremony itself and afterwards some relaxed photos of the happy couple not forgetting those group shots. Experience tells me that for these types of weddings around two and a half to three hours is perfect, time enough to capture the spirit and joy of the wedding whilst allowing the couple and their guests to get on with enjoying their special day. My price for this is £450. If you have any specific requirements for your Day, for example you require me for longer, then of course we can discuss this and agree a price. The images will be presented to you by file transfer via Dropbox or if preferred a USB Stick, after receiving them you will be able to share on Social Media, with family and friends or use a service such as Blurb to print your own Wedding Book. I have a simple agreement for Weddings, you can view and download this by clicking here - John Harper Photography Agreement .
