All the information you need

A little bit about me!

I’m Wedding Photographer Kevin Mullins, a dad, a husband, a brother an ex-rugby player and a huge Johnny Cash fan!

I grew up in Wales and although now based in the gorgeous Cotswold town of Malmesbury, I shoot weddings right across the United Kingdom, and destination weddings abroad.

I’m a genuine wedding photojournalist and social documentary photographer.  I get a buzz when I see images that have emotion, humour and candour.

A photograph to me, needs to show an element of humanity and I often say that I simply photograph “people being people”.

Taking my inspiration from classic street photographers and photojournalists across the globe, I love to photograph weddings and see it as a privilege to be involved in your special day.

I will photograph your wedding in a documentary reportage way, telling the true story of it in pictures.

Check out my documentary wedding photography page for more details on my unique approach to photographing a wedding.

I live in the Cotswolds with my wife Gemma.  We have a young daughter, Rosa Seren and a little boy, Albie.

Additionally, we have two cute, funny and a bit naughty dogs – Breezie, a whippet and Monty, a Border Terrier.

Outside of photography I am a  huge rugby fan and played for many years myself at London Welsh in West London.

In January 2015 I was awarded my Associateship of the SWPP, of which I’m the first member to achieve that level using a 100% Reportage Panel of pictures.

I’m also very pleased to be only one of a handful of photographers to have been a member of the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers.

Our requirements are experience, talent, and professionalism. To be accepted, a photographer must have shot at least 50 weddings, submit their portfolio for review, agree to operate under the ISPWP Code of Conduct, and have an ISPWP Sponsor or four references. And THEN they have to be voted in by current members.

In short, when you hire an ISPWP Photographer, you are hiring a talented veteran with a track record, peer recognition, and a passion for creating heirloom images of your wedding.

Scott Bourne, renowned photographer and journalist on a recent interview mentioned that “Kevin Mullins is one of the top five wedding photographers in the world”

So that’s me. Mostly, anyway.  But what about you?

finding the perfect Wedding Photographer

A little bit about you …

I know that finding the perfect wedding photographer is difficult and I want to help you if I can.

You’ve already read about me and possibly my notes on Documentary Wedding Photography and also scoured my Wedding Photography Portfolio then you should have a good idea bout my style of wedding photography by now.

And don’t forget to check out the blog – there are hundreds of past weddings there for you to take a look at.

You will hopefully realise that my style of wedding photography is different from the hundreds of other photographers out there.

If you want wedding photos that are driven by natural, emotion-filled moments then please read on.

You spend a lot of time and money on your wedding.

Would you prefer to spend that time with your family and friends, or spend hours of your big day with a photographer having endless posed pictures ‘set up’ for you?

If this is the case then, I’m hoping then, that you love:

  • Natural images
  • True Storytelling photography
  • Wedding photography that captures people, just being people
  • Emotion filled and humour driven photographs

Finding the perfect wedding photographer; images that make you smile:

I know that finding the perfect wedding photographer is often a challenge.

However, please take a look at Anya & Mark’s Bury Court Barn Wedding below.  Turn the music up.

After that, hopefully, you will be engrossed in my wedding photography.

You’ll see emotion, humour, love, fun, use of natural light and a whole wedding story.

Above all, if the following, fills you with dread:

  • Hundred’s of group shots (of course, we can still do a few).
  • Photographs that are on a tilt.
  • Told to “look at the camera & smile”.
  • Spending more time with the photographer than your guests.

In other words, I think we are on the same page 🙂

I know that finding the perfect wedding photographer is a real challenge for couples and subsequently I hope this page has helped.

Prices

Your wedding is probably the most important day of your life.

You invest a lot of time and money into this day that you have been planning for months or perhaps even years.

When the flowers have wilted, the champagne has been drunk and the cake has been enjoyed, you will only have the images to look back on.

Images like these:

I’m aware that pricing for wedding photography may appear to be one of life’s little mysteries.

Every photographer does it differently. For that reason, I have kept my professional fee as simple as possible.

Prices start from just £1,495

Bespoke packages are available also for short coverage and destination weddings abroad.  

Album upgrades and parent albums are also available.

A discount is applicable for those who wish to have a 100% black and white coverage.

Please contact me for further collection details and a full set of fees.

I undertake a limited amount of wedding commissions per year.

Each wedding gets 100% of my time and attention.

I do not shoot weddings just to supplement another income – wedding photography is my profession and as such you must only expect professional results.

I produce stunning contemporary matted albums that complement my documentary style perfectly.

These are in my opinion the best quality albums in the world.

Discount options are available for mid-week weddings Monday-Thursday (except bank holidays).

A completed contract and booking fee of £200 is required to confirm the booking.

The rest of the payment is due 28 days prior to the wedding. Payments can be made by BACS, Cheque or Debit/Credit Card.

A note about my books

You will always get the digital images of course, but on a very personal basis, I strongly believe that a photograph is not a photograph unless it’s printed.

A wedding book is a family heirloom and I still look at my parent’s wedding book from 1965.

I work very closely with my album supplier and they produce for me the most gorgeous matted albums I believe you get on the market place today.
