The day, the whole day and nothing less than the whole day I love weddings, I love cake & I love music, so with every package, if you are rocking a good party, then I am staying to the end. Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. I think I am the only local wedding photographer who is mad enough to offer such a guarantee! A free no obligation kettle inspection I offer a free no obligation kettle inspection, over a cup of tea & chocolate biscuits we will discuss your day, come up with creative ideas, & you can view my work. Your Pictures When your pictures are ready I will come round & show them to you on my laptop, and not to get too technical, my screen is calibrated every 3 months for colour accuracy. If the picture looks great on my laptop but terrible on your TV, you will know it’s time to buy a new TV! You will receive a full set of pictures in colour & black & white, & duplicate set re-sized for social media. I will also create a movie with a selection of the day’s pictures to the song of your first dance. Thank you cards Ergh one of those jobs that has to be done but often gets forgotten is thank you cards, so with every package, I will produce 50 thank you cards that have 8 images from your day, saving you a job. Albums I can design an album that you can look back in years to come when you are little older, & have forgotten more than you have learnt & have fun playing the game of “who the heck is that” I totally recommend that you have an album as in about 50 years I will probably be pushing up daisies, unable to pay the cloud services bill so access to your online pictures will be stopped. In 30 years your USB stick probably won’t plug into anything modern, but rest assured a good old fashioned album will stand the test of time and allows you to play “who the heck is that” in later life.
