Expect the best, because that’s what I’m giving. While you two are snuggling and smooching on your day, enjoying every minute like you should, I’ll be there working to make sure it’s all documented.
I’m not showing up for your wedding. I’m showing up for you. What you can expect from me:
THE FIRST EMAIL
It begins with a conversation. You are important from the minute you email me! I'm fairly quick to answer emails (say one hour? max two? that's me! who wants to wait?). If you like my work let's chat about your day over a good coffee, let's chat about the dilemmas, worries, and hopes. Being photographed is scary! But you have nothing to worry about because I guide & direct, always have a funny story to tell and I will do anything for my clients.
Let’s not make it weird. Do you like what you see here? Let's get your date on my calendar. To officially book I just need a signed contract and £400 deposit. Then I'm yours, just like that. Everything is done digitally because I am all about making life easier and more eco.
From now on we can start planning your engagement session. It might be a few months until your big day, but I'm always around to answer your emails and questions you might have, so go ahead and give me a call if you need to. Need vendor recommendation? Ask away! A month before the wedding we finalize the last payment and details about your day. We create a timeline for the wedding and prepare the formals list.
Yikes! Unless you’re a model, being photographed probably feels a little awkward. I do this for a living and still feel a little out of place when I have my photos taken.
I’m a big fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. First, they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how I guide and pose. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.
Second, you can showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, we’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.
It's show time! I photograph your wedding. You just be present; I’ve got the rest covered. After all the planning & dreaming & maybe some stressing, it's time to enjoy marrying your person! And because I take care of you from the beginning, I'm fully prepared to slay your wedding day without you worrying.
On wedding days, I am both hands-on and a fly on the wall. Different moments require different things. I like to watch the day as it happens and document, but when I see a moment for a perfect shot, I will step in to make sure everything comes together for that timeless image.
My goal is to do such a good job that when your photos come back, you’ll be shocked at everything that happened that day. I don’t want to miss a thing.
YOUR PHOTOS ARE READY
After backing up the files I begin to cull them and edit. I usually send a sneak peak the day after and your full gallery should be ready within 1 month. No waiting! That time allows me to really focus on perfecting the gallery and making sure everything is print ready. I deliver your photos in a password protected online gallery, ready for download, print & album orders.
