Welcome to the website of Tim Arbon Photography.
In 2006 I was asked to photograph my first wedding, which was held in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence! Since then I’ve photographed over 50 weddings in Oxford and Cambridge colleges, Michelin star restaurants, manor houses, churches, mills and barns… and even some hotels in Swindon! But no matter where the wedding is, I always remember that it’s all about the couple, the story of their wonderful day, & reflecting their personalities in the pictures I take of them.
There are many example photos on this website – so many that it might be difficult to work out what to click on first! Once you’ve clicked on one or two of the pictures above, you might like to see some example photos that show how I tell the story of your wedding day and capture all the details. For more photos from various weddings, check out the example photos by venue, and for a bit of romance, there’s my showcase slideshow.
Below is an overview of the way I work, and what I offer.
Once you’ve booked me I work with you on planning the photography for your wedding. To ensure I know the sort of thing you would like me to photograph, I send you a details form, which asks if you would like any group photos taken, and if there are any particular items that are special to you, that you would also like a picture of – such as a family heirloom passed down from mother to bride.
I also visit the venue(s) before the wedding day, take photos to help with my planning, and email you suggestions. Some of the photos may even be used later to enhance your wedding album!
And I create a draft itinerary of your day, just so we can check we have time to take the photos you want, when you want. On the day I’m casual, friendly and relaxed – but I work very hard, and people come over and tell me how impressed they are at every wedding!
I’ve been editing photographs since the very early days of digital photography (somewhere around 1997). I’ve gone through all the phases of applying special effects, adding textures etc., and I got it out of my system very quickly! I still do lots of editing, but to me, it is all about enhancing the memories of your day, so I edit photos to look like the special moments as you remember them.
When you get to see your photos, it deserves to be treated as a special and personal event. So for your presentation, I invite you to my candle-lit studio, give you both a glass of Champagne, and project them on a wall 10 feet across. (This is totally optional, and you can just have the discs sent to you if you wish.)
The price for the above services starts at £500 for half day coverage (up to 5 hours) or £800 for all day (10.30am-8.45pm). This includes all of the fully edited files on DVD discs, presented in a beautiful leather folio.
For further details of the pricing and services offered please request a brochure.
Most photographers offer just one or two album types. I offer six – which means I have the right album type for your wedding, whatever your budget or requirements. Three examples are shown below.
As well as albums I offer lots of other products, so if you require anything in particular just let me know.
