The personal, friendly service with high quality product.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What about your business are you most proud of?
After the initial enquiry we often have a chat at my studio or via the internet.
After booking we have a planning meeting usually nearer the wedding day. We'll typically discuss the couples requirements, likes/dislikes, times, groups, photo styles and finishes. Also which Option is required and if it is an album Option then the style of album.
Typically 4-6 weeks after the wedding the full set of photos will be ready for dispatch/collection. Our couples often like to have a sneak preview via Facebook and this is done a week or two after the wedding.
If an album Option is chosen then this will be designed using the couples choice of photos and proofed before being made.
