What to Expect

I strongly believe that you should expect a wedding photographer to meet all your needs. After all it’s your day not mine. A wedding photographer should provide a service that is bespoke to each individual bride. Wedding photography is unique in the sense that I capture everything from telling a story to creating unique moments that only ever happen once in a life time.

Wedding photography is all about PLANNING, I love to build up a good rapport with my couples before the wedding, spending time a few weeks before the big day so I can get a good idea of all the possibilities on your special day.

The beauty of wedding photography is that no wedding is ever the same; every location, every venue, every couple, every mode of transport chosen all helps create a unique story of images that only you will have and treasure forever.

As a wedding photographer it is important to have a good understanding of what each individual couple likes. This again all comes down to prior planning and building the rapport I have already touched on.

What can you expect beforehand?

It generally starts with a consultation, here I find out all the little details of your wedding day, talk about what special requests you may have and what you have already got in mind for your wedding photographer. Discuss what group and formal photos you may require, look through my sample wedding albums and generally get to know each other.

What you can expect on the day?

I cover your whole wedding no matter which collection you choose. This generally starts with the bridal preparations and goes through to the first dance.

The whole process is about helping to create a fun experience which really captures the story of your day. I create a mixture of natural shots and work quickly and smoothly through the more set-up artist shots and group formal shots.

I like to cover the bridal preparations before meet the guys. During this period I’ll be capturing the detail shots of your wedding dress, flowers, engagement ring and any little detail I can find to enable me to tell the story of your wedding day. I then meet the guys at the church and take candid shots of the boys and guests arriving.

During the wedding ceremony I am unobtrusive and none disturbing for it’s your most important and meaningful days of your life together.

After your ceremony is finished and I have created some photos of you signing the register and leaving the venue I try to capture the big group photo of everyone, working as a team we can make them quick and fun. After you have had some time to mingle with your guests, I will begin with the other group photos, parents, close family and whatever else we will have discussed beforehand.

That’s the traditional side of things finished, I now like to move on to the creative photos, fun with the bridal party, romance with you both and all the ideas we will have discussed before your wedding.

After we have finished with all the creative photos with you both I’ll move on to the details of your wedding, photographing everything from the cake through to the table decorations and everything else that I feel is needed to build up the story of your day in the wedding album.

After the detailed photos are taken I will take some lovely natural photos of you and your guests entering the room for the wedding breakfast. I’ll capture the speeches and all the great moments of laughter that will be lined up for you.

I generally leave you to relax and enjoy your wedding breakfast and meet up again for the first dance.

PLEASE NOTE – All of this is just to give you an insight into how the day can usually run in terms of the wedding photography. I totally understand that it’s your wedding day and that each wedding is unique.

What you can expect after your wedding?

It takes me around five days to process and edit your wedding photos, applying some of my special techniques that just add that final touch to everything.

As soon as you have chosen your final images I will design your sample album which will give you a good idea of how everything will/can look in your finished wedding album.

(If you chose the CD only collection with full copyright release, your photos will be processed and ready for you to take home after the five days)
