The RAW Book
Peter is the first photographer in Europe to offer this exquisite, artisan album.
Designed and lovingly created for clients who appreciate art and the finer things in life.
At the time of writing, there are only 4 such books in the world and two of those are for representatives of the album company.
Peter will cover your wedding in his usual style and then present you with all the images in high resolution, print-ready format. From this, you then select the images that are special to you and that you want to appear in your RAW Book.
Created and handcrafted in Italy, the album comes in the stunning RAW Box, crafted from wood and then is wrapped within a very special leather hide cover. The pages are then of the finest art cotton with unfinished edges to really give you something very different. This paper made by hand the same way for over 200 years is delicate and each page will have a different ink absorbing rate so to get this quality and consistency on this paper is yet another first for the company. A true artist dream but it is also very delicate so should be treated with great care.
This album is all about the art and the image so is offered with a single image per page.
The price includes the first 25 images and you are free to add additional images. The RAW Book can hold up to 60 images.
Up to 3 hours £1500.00
Additional Album images: £50 per image.
Additional Hours coverage: £150 per hour or part thereof

Booking Your Photography
Peter is one of the UK’s most sought-after wedding photographers. He is also currently, the only Master Craftsmen of the Guild of Wedding Photographers in Sussex, which puts him in the top 100 in the country! Clients have been known to change their wedding dates and/ or book him up to two years in advance just to ensure that they get him for their wedding day! While this may appear a little extreme, Peter only shoots 20-30 weddings per year and usually gets around 500 enquiries for these dates. Unfortunately, this means that we are unable to provisionally hold any date without payment and all dates are booked on a first come-first served basis.
Unlike many wedding photographers, Peter is a vastly experienced professional and carries comprehensive professional insurance for your protection. His complete discretion, artistry, professionalism, passion and hard-earned reputation give you complete peace of mind in the minefield of finding and selecting your wedding photographer.
To confirm your booking we require a non-refundable and non-transferable retainer of £500.00 (this is deductible from your final total) and a completed Booking Form. We are happy to accept payment by BACs, Cash, and Cheques.
At Peter Prior Photography we prefer to offer simple transparent pricing for our work. This way you know exactly how much your photography is going to cost you. There are no hidden extras and no nasty surprises after your wedding day.
Pre Wedding Sessions
I am always happy to create special collections of images of couples before their wedding day. These Pre Wedding Sessions are a great way for us to relax together and produce natural, editorial style pictures for you to enjoy.
Session Fee (up to 2 hours photography) £125.00 or £345.00 with Signing Book (holds 15 photographs)

Choosing your wedding photographer is something that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Your wedding is a one off event; probably the most important day in your lives. The wrong decision can leave you with a lifetime of regrets.
Long after the dress is packed away, the flowers have died, the food is eaten and memories fade, your wedding pictures, are the one real thing left to bring back all those wonderful memories.
Since the advent of digital photography, it seems that everyman and his dog is a “wedding photographer”. However, there are “wedding photographers” and “PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS”.
As with anything, cheap is generally cheap for a reason. Below are a few tips to try and help you navigate through the minefield of selecting the photographer your wedding deserves.
• Try to view a set of complete weddings from the photographer to ensure he/she can cope with a wide range of scenarios that a wedding can throw up.
• You’re looking for a high level of consistency throughout the coverage.
• Check that he/she is insured for your protection.
• Ensure the work you view, is that of the photographer who will be shooting your wedding.
• Check more than one photographer, just to get a feel for the standards you should expect.
• Go on personal recommendation.
• Consider why a photographer is priced as he/she is. Cheap is generally cheap for a reason and dearer photographers generally offer a more professional service, higher standards of photography and vast experience. Weddings shouldn’t be taken lightly or seen as a way for a new photographer to practice. There is no second chance to get your pictures right!
• Ask what you will actually end up paying, rather than being sucked in by a low starting price, only to find out that you will end up paying far more after your wedding.
• Ideally, view the finished sample albums to check on the quality of the prints and books first hand.
“Thank you so, so much for the beautiful pictures and overall amazing experience during our photo shoot. We had so much fun making lovely memories and appreciate all your time and hard work making it a special occasion.”
