‘The more you plan, the luckier you get’, this just about says it all for me – if we spend some time planning the photography for your day, then even when things change (as they inevitably will!) we’ll be ready for it. I like to have a backup plan, particularly for things like group shots, just in case it’s raining or there’s another reason to change our plans at the last moment.... I always say as long as you have a backup plan you won’t need it!
It’s important we meet before your wedding, to discuss what you want and what the arrangements are, so that on the day you can relax knowing the photography is being taken care of. Ahead of your wedding I’ll visit the ceremony and reception venues as necessary and we’ll discuss timings, location for photography and anything else I need to know that will help the day run smoothly. I’ll be completely prepared for those inevitable changes in the wedding day timings and of course the weather!
I mainly work unobtrusively in the background, which means you and your wedding guests can have a great time, leaving me to worry about the photography. I can be there as you’re getting ready for the day ahead, until the last dance of the night, depending on your needs. The only time I’ll be controlling events will be for the formal group shots and some relaxed and fun bride and groom shots. You can have as much or as little formal photography as you want or need, it’s up to you.
As soon as possible after your wedding (usually within a week, sometimes two at busy times) your pictures will be edited, individually retouched and ready to view on your personal, passworded online viewing gallery. Friends and relatives will also be able to view and buy copies of your pictures from the gallery.
I bet you’ve got a hundred more questions to ask so please feel free to give me a call on 07836 718 719, use the contact form on the ‘Contact’ page or email me at email@example.com
