What about your business are you most proud of?
We've built up a successful full-time business and an enviable reputation from scratch, as well as a track record for delighting our clients. Super proud of that!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
That's an easy one. There's a million and one things to spend your money on when you're planning a wedding - spend wisely, but spend money on the things that matter most to you.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One of our clients provided the best favours I'd ever seen at a wedding - a hangover emergency kit! On the tables, each guest had a cool bag filled with everything you need to recover from a hangover - an energy drink, some sweets, a miniature vodka & orange juice and even paracetamol. Very forward-thinking!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
The process with our couples begins with an initial meeting. It's so important that make sure we're the correct fit for our clients, so during the initial meeting we'll look at sample albums together and talk about the wedding in detail so we can build an idea of what we can bring to their big day. We'll also tailor our products and services to their needs and build a photography package that ticks all the boxes!
Our booking process is handled entirely online, making it super-easy for clients to secure us for their wedding. They can read and sign the photography agreement, supply their contact details and pay their booking fee online in one easy step.
We'll keep in touch with our clients in the run up to the big day, arranging any venue visits other pre-wedding photoshoot (if included) around 3 months before the wedding. Once we're within 2 weeks of the wedding, we'll send out an online questionnaire for our clients to complete, so that they can give us details of all the main people and which photos they'd like taken. We'll also schedule a phone call or a meeting here at the office to go over timings, discuss the day in more detail and answer any questions the client may have.
We like to offer a lot of help and support to our clients throughout the process and will happily give any advice they may require to help the day run smoothly as well as recommend other suppliers as needed. Our clients can contact us at any time via email, text, telephone or through our Facebook page, so they can relax knowing we can be easily contacted if they need anything.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace it! You can't control the weather, but if you're willing to brave the elements there's always an amazing photo opportunity in the rain!
Describe how you got into photography.
I've always been into photography from my late teens but it was a chance meeting with a professional photographer that really started everything off! We became friends and he persuaded me to try my hand at wedding photography by assisting him as a second photographer at a real live wedding, and from that moment I was hooked!
