How do you photograph weddings?
My style is very relaxed, natural photos. A lot of couples have commented on how they barely noticed me on their day as I blend in with your guests and when you are relaxing having canapes, etc, I will be snapping away at all your set ups.
The only more posed part of the day will be your group and couple photos. For your group photos I highly recommend to have 10-15 groups maximum (so it doesn't take up too much of your time), I always help couples put their list together in advance so everything goes smoothly on the day.
With your couple photos, we will take a few after your ceremony, but if the weather and light allows then the best time is after your wedding breakfast when the light is softer and it also gives you a little break away for 15-20 minutes to just be together and soak your big day in. I guide you through your couple photos and give you little prompts to get some lovely photos as a newly married couple!
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm based in Bournemouth, and mainly get booked to photograph Weddings within Dorset and Hampshire. However I do travel for Weddings, so feel free to pop me a message and we can discuss your big day.
HOW LONG IS THE ALL DAY PACKAGE?
My all day package is for up to 10 hours, I arrive when you are getting ready and then follow you through your whole day and early evening.
I photograph your First Dance and get some photos of your guests throwing some shapes on the dancefloor and then I head off. If you require longer coverage then just pop me a message with the details and we can discuss it.
How many photos will we receive?
For all day wedding coverage, you will receive approximately 400 fully edited images. I take a limitless amount on the day and then will select and edit the best photos to tell your love story.
You will receive high-resolution JPegs, and a license to print so you can either order prints and products through me or get them done at a later date if you wished.
When will we get our photos?
You will receive a password protected online gallery with all your photos within approximately 4 weeks of your special day (sometimes a little longer depending on the season I photograph your story).
You can download all the photos from the gallery and also share them, choose your favourites, and also order prints and so can your family and friends! Your gallery is active for 12 months.
How do you edit the photos?
All photos that your receive (approximately 400 for a all day wedding) will be edited to improve the visual aesthetic, edits include minor alterations (e.g. clean up of photos, spot/blemish removal, colour enhancement). I don't do major retouching (e.g. changing body shape/ size).
You will also receive approximately 10% of your photos in Black and White, I will select which photos look/ work best in this style.
How do we book you?
Fantastic! I'm glad you like my work so much. You can either give me a call, email or pop me a message on my contact form and I'll be in touch asap.
First of all I either have a chat with you on the phone or video call, and we discuss your big day and my style of work. Then I have a booking form for you to complete and return to me. I also require a £200 holding fee to secure your date, this is then taken off your final balance. Your final balance is due 6 weeks before your wedding date.
