Kayleigh s.'s review on Nov 30, 2020

My husband and I cannot thank Grev and Sharon enough for the amazing photography service that we received for our wedding this year. Due to the pandemic we had to change our plans like so many other engaged couples and we couldn't thank Grev enough for being so accommodating and supporting with rearranging our dates to making our day so special. Even though the day was slightly different to what we had originally planned, the photos that Grev has taken are wonderful keepsakes of our special day.

Matthew S.'s review on Jun 03, 2020

My wife and I got married on the 22nd of June 2019. All I can say is that the photographer on the day (Matt) was incredible, I was very stressed that morning to say the least, Matt took control on the day and set me at ease and expertly ducked and weaved around my mini tantrums in the morning. My wife had nothing but positive things to say about him as well. Grev and Sharon were fantastic at providing support and guidance both before and after the wedding. They were very accommodating and very much set us at ease in seconds. They helped make the photography element of our wedding as painless as possible. Prices are very reasonable and competitive, the photos and viewing process was very easy and relaxed, album choices are also superb. If you’re looking for a photography company that will make the photographer and photos the least stressful part of your day look no further than Premiere Photogrphy!

Simon F.'s review on Feb 24, 2020

Where to begin about Grev... he made everybody comfortable, he made people laugh meaning our photos have a much more natural look, he was so easy to get on with. From the moment we decided to use Grev the contact has been excellent, such a friendly person with outstanding work and a very realistic price, Grev understands that weddings aren't cheap so makes himself affordable to everyone.

Emma E.'s review on Dec 28, 2018

Grev photographed our wedding in November. He keeps in contact and puts your mind at ease with any questions you might have even weeks before the wedding. We found Grev very friendly and easy to get along with and he made our day really fun. He knew the venue very well and knew where to take the best photos. Grev got along with all our guests and made them laugh and feel relaxed as he took the photos. He made having our photographs taken a fantastic experience and added memories to our day we will never forget. The end result when we had our album was outstanding, we now have memories of every part of our day we will never forget. I would highly recommend Grev, he will add fun to your day as well as being extremely organised and professional. So smile at the handsome beast. 😄 Thank you Grev!

Grev was great at our wedding. He made me feel relaxed having my photo taken which normally I don't like! He was determined to get the best shots for us to remember our special day and the quality of our album is great, and all at good value. I would definitely recommend Grev!

Peter D.'s review on Dec 12, 2018

I cannot recommend Grev and Premiere photography highly enough. He was great fun on the day and put everyone at ease. He worked seamlessly with our videographer and produced a beautiful album which exceeded our expectations. We were also provided with a memory stick containing all the photos Grev took on the day. Thank you so much.

Samantha C.'s review on Dec 02, 2018

Grev and Sharon were absolutely fantastic, nothing was too difficult for them, from the beginning from booking to our big day on Saturday 20th August 2016. Premiere Photography was fantastic with their communication and all of the above , we couldn't have asked for a better photographer they outstandingly patient with us and we would definitely recommend them to anyone and if needed we would definitely use their service again. The album we received was fantastic and definitely worth the money we paid. Thank you for making our big day so special. Mr and Mrs K Cooper.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
We don't believe in offering packages as such we want to provide what you want at very competitive prices. Our quotations are accurate, there are no hidden charges and we will put together a bespoke 'package' for you. Some couples require less coverage of others more expensive coverage. We will provide all-day photography from bridal prep through to first dance and include a wedding album for as little at £395. We will willingly send you a full quotation by email. We often offer promotions and discounts, these vary but we will include our current promotion in your email quotation.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
The first part is the quotation and if you like what you see please get back to us. We will answer any questions you may want to ask by email and we would be delighted to have a chat with you, its a lot more personal than just emails and it gives us the opportunity to discuss your every need. If you want to confirm us as your photographers the booking process is very straightforward and can all be done by emails etc.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
Training is a very important part of photography. We train other photographers and we also undertake training with other photographers. There is always something new to learn and we always want to stay up to date with current equipment, techniques and client requirements.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Absolutely. Look for reviews and a good place to see reviews is on a Facebook page, why Facebook? It is simply because reviews have to be 100% genuine and not fictitious or artificially made up. Any reviews on Facebook have to be genuine because they have to come from a registered account. Reviews on this site are also bona fire and genuine. Don't rely on reviews on websites alone, they may not always be genuine. Don't be afraid to answer any questions and we welcome phone calls and face to face meetings to discuss your precise needs.
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
How long have you been a photographer? How long have you been photographing weddings? How many weddings have your photographed? Can I see examples of your work? Do you offer any discounts or promotions? Are you insured? Do you use professional equipment? Are you insured? Do you provide wedding albums in your packages? What happens if it rains? Ask us any questions you want.
What are some good examples of past customers?
This is difficult because we have had many many wonderful experiences with literally hundreds and hundreds of brides, our reviews on Facebook speak for us. Here is one such review: Honestly, we can't recommend premiere photography enough. From start to finish grev was absolutely amazing, made us feel completely at ease. Captured our day just perfectly, if there's ever a time we need a photographer premiere will definitely be my first contact. Thank you so much Grev and Sharon xxxx —
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
All weddings are treated as if it was our own wedding and we always put maximum effort into any wedding or photography assignment. Most weddings are normally fully covered in about 6-8 hrs, we don't run a clock at a wedding we finish when we have taken all of the photographs we need to take. We will always get photographs online for couples to see within 14 days of the wedding, it is not uncommon for us to have them online within 24hrs depending on the time of the year. We have delivered a completed album within 7 days of a wedding because the couple were emigrating. Careful planning and flexibility is the key to success. A few years ago we photographed a wedding at Westminster with the reception being held at the Dorchester hotel. I was entering the hotel through a side door (the main revolving doors were being used by guests. As I was doing through the door my camera bag got stuck, I was muttering away to myself when someone pulled the door open from the inside - that someone was Sarah Ferguson, I was shocked I said 'Thank you very much that was awkward to say the least'. I had a big beaming smile from her and she said 'You are welcome'. That was a wonderful day.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I had my first camera when I was twelve and I was rationed to one film a month. when I was 18 I bought my first DSLR camera and by now I was hooked. I am 62 years young now (Sharon says 62 with the mind of a twenty-year-old - I like to have fun at weddings). I photographed my first wedding 40 years ago and I learnt how to use a camera properly in my last job as a Police Officer. During that time I continued to photograph anything and everything including weddings, Christenings and sadly some very unpleasant scenes work-related. I always planned on becoming a pro photographer when I retired and I set my business up in 2006. Initially, we photographed 32 weddings the first year. This grew and we took on and trained more photographers enabling us to photograph 180 weddings/events for the past six years. People ask me when am I going to retire and being honest as long as I am able to continue that day will be when I am laid to rest.

I am a technical perfectionist, I take what I do extremely seriously and I believe that you can't achieve perfection without the best equipment, that is why I have invested heavily in my equipment so that I am not limited by it, I triple backup all of my work so there is no chance that any coverage
