love is in the air
As you may be finding out planning a wedding is hard work! So much to do but the photography is what you will look back on and remember your day for the rest of your lives together. Choose someone you see as a friend, that makes you relaxed and will capture the best sides of you!
Before making another huge decision to choose someone. Let's chat, if you're close by lets grab a drink, if you're a bit further Zoom is a great way to get to know each other and ask all the questions you might have.
02. engagement shoot
Dependant on the package chosen the engagement shoot is included or optional. I love getting to meet you both before the big day. If you're nervous about the camera I hope to take away these fears so on the wedding day you can fully immerse yourself and not have a doubt in the world. Plus more photos to look fabulous in!
03. wedding day
The day has finally arrived where you both say "I do!" The day does fly by so take a moment with the couple shots to actually spend some time together. We can capture beautiful memories if it's rain or shine. We will work through the outline of the day in advance, so we have a rough plan to go along with, so you get the most out of the day.
04. editing & Airbrushing
After the wedding day, and I have thousands of images, I will cut this down to around 900+ depending on the package you choose. I edit each photo with my own style, making sure they are perfect for delivery. When it comes to the albums, photos will be airbrushed to remove any imperfections you may be concerned about. So you will always look 110% your best!
05. online galleries
This is the first place you see your photos after the day. You can share your password protected online gallery with friends and family, and give them the download pin so they can download photos of themselves too! In the gallery you can choose your favourite photos, so that I can see which you would like to be included with each of your package.
06. prints & ALbums
After selecting your favourites on the online gallery we then turn this into the product/s that you can keep and share for a lifetime. These are all high quality products that you can look back on for many years to come. With a range of styles there will always be something you will fall in love with. If you go for a different package and then later you decide you would like an album, this is absolutely fine.
WHEN AND HOW SHOULD WE BOOK?
It's never too early to book in your photographer, With only shooting one wedding a day they soon fill up. As soon as you know your venue and date then lets get booked. All you need to do is let me know your date. I will send over the booking form and contract for you to complete. There will also be a deposit of £200 to secure your date.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
YES! I love to travel! I will cover all of the UK and if you plan to elope abroad then I'm more than happy to jump on that plane too.
WE HATE HAVING PHOTOS, WHAT SHOULD WE DO?
I'm a very natural and candid photographer, this means you don't need to feel nervous about being in front of the camera I will capture your authentic selves. I do also include the engagement shoot so that you can use this time to get to know me and hopefully realise it's actually pretty fun.
We haven't decided on a package, can we still book?
Of course! If you are undecided on if you want 8 hours or the full day or if you want an album, you can always upgrade your package anytime before the wedding day.
Do we need to feed you?
If you would like me for the full day packages this is something I do request. It's a very long day including travel time so it's always nice to have some food ready to keep on working into the night.
In the future can we get an album?
Yes, If you decide after the date that you would like an album, this is always something extra we can do. I can share an up to date product list. I do have example albums you are more than happy to look at and see if this is something you would like or not.
How long does it take to receive the photos after the wedding and how will those be delivered?
I aim to have the photos uploaded onto the online gallery within 8 weeks of the wedding date! I often have a faster turnaround, however it depends on time time in the season. It will be worth the wait!
DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?
Yes, I do have public liability insurance.
Do we need a second photographer?
It's completely up to you. The benefit with a second photographer is different angles when it comes to the ceremony. We can capture more photos and that's more for you. You can add an additional photographer to your package for £300.
What's your photography style?
Natural and Relaxed. I love to capture them candid moments throughout your day. I love the rustic style, I do keep the traditional style when it comes to the group shots and couple poses, but with a little fun mixed in.
Do we have to do the engagement shoot?
This is an optional extra that I include with all my full day packages. You don't have to do it, although it's a great time to get to know each other, talk weddings and if your feeling nervous hopefully make you feel more relaxed for the wedding day.
