Terry James Wedding photography packages

I like to keep things simple here and not overload you with every single package that I offer, so I offer one price for my best-selling package. Of course, I can offer pretty much every type of wedding photography coverage available including half-day wedding packages.

How it all works & what I do

My couples get beautiful wedding photography documented in a natural, unobtrusive & relaxed style. I focus on ensuring that your wedding story is told the way it was meant to be told. A lot of effort and endeavor goes on behind the scenes to ensure that your wedding day photography runs like clockwork. For you, all you have to do is have fun and enjoy your wonderful memories. You can find out some useful stuff and useless stuff too about me here.

Before your Wedding day

This is where the groundwork and foundation for your wedding photography starts. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make sure we cover all the bases and it includes wedding venue visits, meetings with suppliers & wedding co-ordinators where possible and being available for you at any time up to the wedding for advice, help & any questions you have.

After your Wedding day

There is much more work to do after your wedding day and on average I will spend 25-30 working hours cultivating and editing your wedding images in my unique style – this process is all about sorting the best from the best images and retouching skin tones, removing any unwanted blemishes and ensuring that your images represent the best moments from your wedding day. I aim to deliver your images to your personal wedding gallery in approx 2-4 weeks, though depending on my current workload, it can be less.

Optional wedding album

We will also be designing your 30 – page wedding album and delivering a personal heirloom that is as unique as you and your wedding day. The processing time for your wedding album is 6-8 weeks once you have established your wedding images for your album.

Wedding Photography Prices

My package has been designed to offer every couple the very best balance of quality, coupled with a luxury Italian designed wedding album (though the wedding album is totally optional), serving as an ideal family heirloom that will last for generations to come.

My price reflects professional wedding photography, with an assurance that comes with years of honing my skills to deliver the very best wedding photography experience, therefore, I am confident that your investment will deliver memories that will be timeless and keep you smiling as you reflect on your beautiful day through the images that are captured.

Sam & Dan

Gosfield Hall Wedding

Terry became part of the family on our wedding day, he brought an air of calm and fun as soon as he arrived which put our nerves at ease.

He got to know all of the immediate family and friends who all fell in love him, it was as if he was one of our guests and not a supplier. Not only was he amazing as a person but his photographs are simply stunning! We absolutely love them and couldn’t be happier with how he captured our special day.



I try to make this as effortless as possible. I always suggest meeting up first, as this gives us a good opportunity to break the ice. I normally suggest a mutual halfway location like a Costa Coffee, though I am also open to visiting you in person at home if the location isn't any more than 20 miles from Basildon, Essex. Once you have made the great decision to become a Terry James couple, then It is a simple process of signing the prepared online terms and conditions and then paying the £200 non-refundable deposit (the deposit comes off your final balance). Are you ready to get in contact?


There is no hard rule when it comes to how many images I can deliver. Every wedding is unique and there are too many factors to consider to give a definitive number. That said I always take unlimited images in the time available and for the most part always deliver a minimum of 400 images at most weddings. I prefer a quality over quantity approach.


For a lot of my weddings, I normally shoot alone, often accompanied by an assistant (my very able Son Kyle). I only suggest a second photographer if you have a large number of guests and/or you would like to have the groom preparations covered and you are getting ready apart. Having a second photographer is a good choice if you would like your day covered from a variety of different angles to help ensure your day has the best possible coverage


I want everyone to have access to my wedding photography services & therefore offer a number of payment plans.
You can choose to pay for your wedding photography in 4 ways.

You can pay the more traditional way, which would be your deposit of £200 followed by your remaining balance due 30 days before your wedding, or you can choose to pay your deposit of £200 and choose to pay the remainder over 3,6 or 12 months depending on how soon your actual wedding is.

Being an Essex and Chelmsford wedding photographer, this is probably my most asked question and rightly so! We are all human and sometimes things happen beyond our control - In the instance that this might arise, then you can be sure with certainty that your wedding will be covered if this does happen.

It is considered good professional practice to ensure I have a network of excellent professional photographers to call upon should this situation arise. Take comfort in the fact also that with over 90 weddings under my belt I have never missed one moment at any wedding!


Yes I am! I have full public liability, professional indemnity & insurance cover for all my equipment.

Being insured is essential as a professional photographer and most wedding venues require proof of my public liability. Without this they are unlikely to let me photograph your wedding at their venue.

All wedding vendors and photographers should be totally covered and I am a huge advocate of ensuring good business practices, which gives all of my couples peace of mind
