Before The Wedding
Getting in front of the camera can be a bit awkward, let’s be honest! I am definitely a fan of staying behind the camera, so when couples tell me they hate having their picture taken I totally understand where they’re coming from.
Having a practice in the form of a couple shoot before the wedding day can help with this issue so much. Couple shoots are a fun, relaxed way for us to get to know each other while you get used to being photographed (and listen to me talk nonsense) to bring those natural smiles out of you. Shoots usually last about an hour and can be at any kind of location you fancy, beach, urban, countryside, whatever takes your pick.
Couple shoots are best to be done a month or two before the wedding, so everything is fresh in your heads for the big day. Between the two I will be in touch so we can put a day-plan together for the wedding. This will give me an idea of where I have to be and when so I’m there to capture all the best bits.
And remember, from the moment you book I am always at the end of an email if you need any information, advice, or just an excited wedding chat.
On The Day
I will join you on the day, a couple of hours before the ceremony, to capture those exciting “getting ready” moments. I then like to head off to arrive at the ceremony before the bride so I can get a few shots of guests and the guys waiting patiently for everything to begin.
After the rings have been exchanged, the “I do’s” have been said and the confetti has been thrown, it’s the perfect time to do any formal group photos you may want.
At some point during the day I whisk my couples off to get some lovely photos of just the two of them.
For the rest of the day I am very much in the background trying to go as unnoticed as possible, in order to capture those natural moments throughout the wedding.
Once the party starts, I like to stay for about half an hour after the first dance to get some fun party photos to complete the story, then I leave everyone dancing the night away.
YOUR DAY YOUR WAY
After The Wedding
Once all your wedding photos have been edited, you will be able to view them all in your own online gallery which you can easily share with friends and family. You’ll also get a beautifully packaged memory box in the post containing your USB of images.
You can expect a lil’ sneak peek of some of your images online before I send you everything so you can show off your beautiful day to anyone and everyone.
If you’re looking for a way to display the full story of your day, then a gorgeous fine art wedding album is something that is extra special, a choice of stunning covers with page after page of sweet memories.
