What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Take you time planning and booking, dont put added pressure on yourself. Research the companies you book and enjoy the process.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The wedding favours are a perfect way of sealing a lasting memory of your wedding with your guests. We have seen some lovely touches from couples with these, that truly resinate. Its personal from the bride and groom and can be a physical item or a item such as seeds that can be planted and live forever.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
From booking we explore the style of images a couple like. Many people feel uncountable infant of a camera, if this is the case we would suggest a pre wedding shoot. This gives you a sense of exactly how easy the wedding photographs will be and how relaxed we make the entire process. We then look at the images the couple want, formal, location etc. We explore any family politics that may need to be taken into consideration when organising group photographs.
Our full time customer service advisor Steven, is available every step of the way to provide advice and help with all things wedding related. As a photographer we shoot a lot of commercial work too, meaning we can be out of the office for days on end. Steven in there permanently to offer a instant response to all questions. Obviously myself and my wife are available to discuss the shoot too, however Steven is dedicated to the wellbeing of our clients.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Natural shots throughout the day. I feel these are the most valuable images. Capturing your guests, family naturally is a brilliant way of reliving the wedding day.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
We had a wedding in the snow a few years ago. The bride and groom were willing to brave the weather and we were able to capture some wonderful shots.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Never worry about the weather, there is no control over the weather conditions and no matter what the weather does on the day. You will both have a wonderful time and brilliant experience. There is usually always a break in the weather, so when this comes we will; be sure to get out and capture some shots. Other than this we will shoot indoors at pre agreed locations during your final shot list meeting.
Describe how you got into photography.
Having studio film and photography at College and then at University it was always the intention to start our own business. Focusing on both commercial, broadcast and weddings we have been involved in film and photography for over 14 years.
