Pricing and Print Options
Oak and Bramble adventures are a complete, luxury bespoke, artwork commissioning process combined with an adventure session your family will love.
They are not comparable to other family photography services. They are not a whistle-stop photo shoot.
Let me explain.
Typically a traditional photo session would start with an email or phone chat. Then you’d arrive at the location, have fun for an hour, maybe two, before receiving a link to an online gallery with all your images—the end.
So, what is the difference?
Oak and Bramble is a complete wrap-around service far more than merely capturing photos.
We meet before your adventure for a consultation. This session lasts up to 2 hours and is a personalised interior design and artwork planning session.
Unless a photographer is lucky, they cannot create a piece of artwork to fit perfectly in the desired part of your home without first knowing; what space you have available, your colour scheme, and your taste in art.
Another aspect of the initial consultation is getting to know your family. This is not simply about asking ages and general interests. This is really getting to know what makes each individual tick. What faces and expressions really represent each person’s character. What activities and adventures will bring out the true nature of each individual, but also show the unique and deep bonds that exist in your family.
Now imagine the difference between a photographer who has taken the time to gather this information and one who simply shows up and captures what they see.
The difference does not end there.
If the photographs have been crafted since pre-conception, it is only natural for them to be completed to the same high standards.
Sending you a link to an online gallery of images is not up to the oak and bramble standard. There is still lots of work to do. Printing photographs is a whole field of craftspersonship. One single digital file can be printed and displayed in an exhausting number of different ways.
The initial consultation should help narrow down the options, but the content of the image itself (which cannot ever be totally predicted) determines so much.
Bright, intense colours and high contrast black and white images look amazing on high gloss acrylic. But these bold pieces are not always appropriate – fine art paper with large mounts and delicate frames compliment soft dreamy photos much better. Some photos belong together in a gallery; some are so special they should be displayed on their own as a centrepiece.
It is almost impossible, even for photographers, to decide which photographs they should display, and how, by looking at them in a digital gallery. It can be overwhelming for the untrained eye.
A print session always follows Oak and Bramble adventures. We will conclude the conversation we began during the initial consultation and finalise the vision. You will see your photographs printed out and see samples and examples of how the final pieces will look.
Here you will find details and pricing of the most popular print options.
More options will be available when you come to view your photos, but to give you an idea of average investments:
Most families will spend £1000+ on artwork.
What happens now?
Are you ready for an Oak & Bramble adventure?
You can get in touch with Emma to ask any questions at all which have not been covered on the website, or just for a chat.
If you are ready to book a session, you can do this by contacting Emma, or you may buy a gift pack (which entitles the recipient to an Oak & Bramble family adventure including consultation, adventure, and print viewing session).
When you buy a gift pack through the online payment system, you will be sent a welcome pack in the post. The welcome pack includes a certificate with unique code that you can use on the booking system (details will be provided). This allows you to book your consultation. You will also receive three booklets detailing the Oak & Bramble experience.
The gift certificate code is transferrable – so you can gift it to a friend, and they can pass it on if they wish, but it must be used within 1 year of purchase. The photo session itself does not need to happen within one year, but the code needs to be used in the online booking system within one year.
