All the beautiful moments captured to create a story that will remain with you for the rest of your lives
Stories move you. Engage you. Encourage you to laugh and cry. The story of each wedding is captured with the genuine, precious and fleeting moments from friends and families and the magic there which charges you with excitement and energy.
Here`s just a few favourites to give you an idea of what to expect. Please visit the storybook page to see more weddings.
The idea is to capture your day as it happens… to be always looking out for those unstaged moments of emotion from you and your guests. There is a little bit of posing during your couples portraits but this is kept to a minimum and we always give some guidance here to ensure that your dress, flowers, veil and suit look amazing.
If you decide that I`m the right wedding photographer for you can expect the following….
I shoot a limited number of weddings per year so that all my couples get a dedicated service and ensures i get a good work/life balance.
All the supplied images are meticulously edited and designed to reflect your story and your day.
I supply all the edited images in high resolution along with a print release. This means you can frame your photos and organise your own story books if you wish.
If you have any questions about your wedding photography get in touch with me via my contact page.
Each part of the day in detail
There are a few parts of the day to consider when allowing enough time, and what to expect, we have broken each part down to help with your planning of the day.
We arrive around 2 hours prior to the ceremony (plus any travelling time to the venue/church), we aim to capture everything in detail, such as your dress, shoes, flowers Jewellery and hair and makeup, we do not want to be in the way and we`ll will capture everything as its happening from the background.
If groom gets ready in the same hotel/place as the bride, it makes photographing both easy, if not, most grooms ask us to meet us at the church/venue prior to the ceremony. There are quite a few options for this we can discuss at our meeting.
We aim to take your family photos using minimal time and usually we allow for 20-30 minute for all the group photos depending on how many you choose to have. We have a list where which we can talk you through (or send) as the day moves closer.
Now this can be a bit of fun as we capture portrait photos of the bride & groom. We would allow 20 mins for this after the group photos, but allow enough time for you to go back to your guests before your wedding breakfast. The majority of the time we can take these outside, though sometimes we may take the photos inside, either way, your photos will look fab!
Throughout the day, we will try and capture as many natural shots as possible, in fact we will never put of cameras down. The best time to captures those special times is after the ceremony when guests are congratulating you, during speeches and after the wedding breakfast when everyone is relaxing.
You put a lot of effort into decorating your room and we`ll will go into the room for around 20 mins and snap away, taking as many photos as possible of all the details.
It has most likely taken you a long time to pick the perfect venue, a place to hold all of those special memories and we try and capture this as much as possible throughout the day
At around 8-8:30pm you will cut your cake and go straight into your first dance. This is a great time for us to capture the fun of your wedding, we will stay for a few songs after the first dance to capture the fun of the dance floor and to get everything we need.
After the Wedding…
After your wedding we return to the office and upload and backup your photos for safe keeping. Depending on the time of year, it will take between 4-5 days to work through and edit your photos, once ready we will of course let you know and post them out to you first class on USB or send you a download link. On average you will receive around 3 – 400 edited images but there is no limit though as we`ll be taking photos all day.
We`ll also ask you at the last meeting before your weeding day if you would like a wedding album designed and produced. Please go to the album page to find out more.
Drop us a line today if you would like us to check your date or to arrange a meeting.
