Describe your typical process with a couple.
Over a telephone call I ask about your wedding details; date, time and venue. I provide you with information based on your questions and more. I then book a face to face meeting to talk further and following your booking and take a look at sample wedding books and options available. Your wedding book is 'provisional' as you might choose a larger book volume after seeing your wedding gallery! I arrange for a complimentary Engagement photo session, in my studio space in Hull or a location near to you; somewhere special to you! I meet with you a week before, agree a photo from your engagement photo shoot for a complimentary 'signing board' for your guests to scribble on during your wedding day & reception. I agree an itinerary with you covering my photography; time to start, special requests and time to finish...ish! Your wedding image gallery will be ready 14 days after your wedding day. You choose your wedding day images for the wedding book you have chosen & I create a design layout for proofing. This is a collaborative process as I always include you in the proofing and final decision to say YES that it. Your wedding design/ book is then sent to the company to be hand crafted and available to deliver to you after 21 days

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
