You have booked your wedding, spent months planning it all to the finest detail, enjoyed your special day, and then you want to look at your photographs to bring back those wonderful memories.
Here is some information on what to expect from me:
An optional pre-wedding shoot at a location that means something to you, either indoors or outdoors. I usually ask that the location is within 1 hour of Stroud in Gloucestershire, otherwise I may have to charge travel costs.
This is a relaxed opportunity for you to get used to being in front of the camera before your wedding. It will also be an opportunity for me to get to know you better, your likes and dislikes.
Digital images will be supplied in a password protected online gallery which you can share with family and friends.
Ideally, the pre-wedding shoot should be at least a month before the wedding.
Shortly after booking (or at least one month before the wedding) we will meet in person or online, to talk through your vision for your wedding and your requirements for your photographs, for example: types of photos, who to include in group photos, any special requests, and to identify key people on the day to help co-ordinate guests for the photos.
At this meeting, it is also useful to discuss other important information relating to your wedding day, such as: the timings for the day, details of who will be conducting the ceremony, and any parking restrictions at the venue(s).
I am always happy to be contacted if anything changes before your special day.
I like to take natural un-posed photos, capturing the emotion and fun of the day. These will include
- photos of the venue(s) including all of those little details which have taken so much planning and preparation
- photos of the ceremony
- photos of the happy couple
- any group photos requested by the couple at the pre-wedding meeting
- any group photos requested by the couple or their guests on the day
- informal photos of the wedding reception and guests
- photos of the cake cutting and speeches
Bride/Groom preparations are optional, either at their own house(s) or at the venue.
Also optional, I can stay into the evening to capture the first dance and some informal photos when the party is in full swing.
Supply of Wedding Photographs
I will provide your edited digital images in internet-ready files via a password protected online gallery within 4 weeks of the wedding date, so that you can choose your favourites. The online gallery can also be shared with friends and family. A smaller selection of highlights from the day will be provided within a week of the wedding date.
Your final edited photos will be provided in both High Resolution files and smaller Internet-ready files on a USB stick in a personalised presentation cover.
High quality albums and prints can also be provided through a specialist supplier, these will need to be ordered separately and payment made with the order.
