Describe your typical process with a couple.
We like to try and get to know our couples during their wedding planning, that way we can find out about their style and capture their wedding in a more personal way.
We normally meet for an initial consultation prior to booking, giving couples the chance to view our sample albums and discuss their plans.
After this we will meet them at least once for a meeting 1 month before the wedding, this is normally arranged at the venue and allows us to make plans for the day so that we know the main events, times and locations.
We also provide the option of a Pre-Wedding shoot which is another great chance to spend an hour or so with our couples getting to know them while they get to experience being photographed so that they are much more relaxed on the big day.
On the day we will be smartly dressed and always get complimented on our interactions with guests and the little things that we do to help the day run smoothly (transporting bridesmaids, carrying flowers, pinning on button holes etc). We try to blend in to the environment so that we can capture the candid moments and many couples compliment us on being discreet throughout their day. We do however have no problems being more assertive when we need to such as arranging your formal group photos.
After the wedding we guarantee to edit your images and deliver the final gallery within 6 weeks. We provide all our couples with at least 300 fully edited images in an online gallery and include a personalised USB containing the images shortly after.
For clients who opt to include an Album in their package we provide a face to face image selection meeting and help them in selecting and designing their album to tell the story of their day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
We always ask out couples for around 45 mins during their day for their beautiful Bride & Groom portraits (in perhaps 2 or 3 sessions)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace the weather and if needs be get the dress a little wet!!
Describe how you got into photography.
It was my personal passion, which I went to college to improve my knowledge and ended up starting our business shortly after!
