-Two photographers to fully capture your day
I endeavour to combine an unobtrusive reportage style with time allocated to take exclusive portraits, allowing for a range of natural moments and beautiful professional portraits in your final gallery. I work most weddings with my talented second shooter Christine Wilson and we pride ourselves on a relaxed and friendly approach and an eye for character and detail. Between us on the day we cover the following stages:
Bridal Preparation and Accessories
It's the beginning of your big day! All the anticipation and excitement is in the air and I will be around to capture the bride and the girls getting ready and to photograph all the sparkly accessories in detail.
Groom Preparation and Accessories
Whilst I am busy capturing the bridal party getting ready, I can send my second shooter over to photograph the action over where the groom is preparing! This way both the bride and groom get to look back later and share the parts of the day they didn't get to see together before the ceremony.
(This slideshow features some photographs from my talented second shooter Christine Wilson!)
Special photographs of the pair of you making it official!
I ask if you could please discuss photography regulations with your vicar beforehand if you are having a church ceremony. It is important to be aware that some vicars do not allow photographers to shoot during the ceremony or do not allow them to be close to the action and we must respect their choice. If close and intimate shots of this part of the day are important to you please discuss this with them before the day to see what options we have. Thank you.
Not to worry if photographers are not allowed to be a part of the ceremony, we can still be there to capture you entering the church and candid moments before and after the ceremony.
Please allow enough time on the day for us to photograph you with your loved ones.
We recommend allowing half an hour on the day for us to take 5-10 photos of yourselves with family and friends. Please nominate a couple of helpers to assist at the time of group photos, perhaps a bridesmaid or best man, who knows all of the guests and is able to to round up the mingling family members who need to be photographed.
This leaves you with more time to enjoy the day, catch up with all of your family and friends and have the natural moments of you all mingling together photographed :)
Beautiful, romantic portraits of the pair of you on location, just married and dressed to kill.
Fear not if it rains, we can just grab wellies and brollies! Or find somewhere aesthetic to work with inside your venue instead.
Reception room and Decor
We know a lot of thought and hard work goes into preparing the reception room and layout for your guests and we'll be there to professionally capture all the details and decor of the day!
It's party time!
I will be there to photograph the decor and details of your venue, candid shots of people having fun and the wonderful natural expressions to memorable speeches from family and friends.
I will capture you both cutting the cake and be there to shoot candid photographs up until after your first dance together. Then I will leave you to enjoy the rest of your night!
Not to forget the unlimited natural captures we will be making throughout the whole day :)
What happens next?
I endeavour to professionally edit and fine tune every image in the full set for you as promptly as possible.
It takes me a couple of weeks to fully organise, edit and export a wedding set. As I edit my events in date order, it may take 4-6 weeks dependent on bookings for clients to receive their set during the busy wedding season.
When all is ready, you will receive a beautifully presented, eco-friendly wooden USB of all images in the final edit from the day, including the images from your pre- wedding shoot, all in high resolution, for you to make unlimited prints from you and share and use as you wish!
Photographs are also all uploaded to a live gallery on my website where guests are able to purchase any prints and photo gifts as they please.
I also design beautiful wedding albums at affordable prices.
You walk away happy with your favourite moments from your big day to keep and look back on forever :)
