What makes you different from other photographers?
PRESENTATION: of your photography is everything – for you, your loved ones and for your future generations. On top of receiving all the digital photos you’ll also have the opportunity of having the same day slideshow (the beautiful highlights of your wedding displayed to you and your guests during your evening reception), a secure on-line gallery to share with friends and family that will remain live indefinitely, of course the stunning album and also full wall art design service should you wish to make a real feature of your favourite images(s).
EFFICIENCY: I aim to have fully edited (in my signature style and to album print standard) and made available to you your full collection of wedding photographs within 1 week of your wedding.
ALBUM INITIALLY DESIGNED BY US BUT APPROVED BY YOU: One of the reasons why many couples choose us is for our stunning album designs. We work in a unique way and base the initial design on our selection of 100 or so photos that we feel showcase your wedding and perfectly tell the story of your day. However, it’s your album so after we’ve produced the first draft you’ll be invited to review it and make as many amendments as you wish. You’ll have as much time as you need. That said most couples absolutely love what they see and may only end up making a few changes. It will be up to you. Adopting this process results in 90% of our couples receiving an album that they adore within 2 months of their wedding.
ME!: Sounds brash, sorry, but how you get on with your photographer and how they interact with you and your guests is EVERYTHING! I simply really enjoy working with people of all ages (young and not so young!) and getting the very best out of them (without them actually realising..). I believe that this is absolutely key for producing REAL photography that ‘speaks’ to you. You only have to take a look at my testimonials to get a feel for this.
What happens if it rains?
Preparation, flexibility, creativity and technical expertise are the answers! Obviously your day is going to be perfect whatever the weather. However, we are in England so there’s a small chance that we’ll have the odd shower here and there. Whatever the case, from a photography point of view there’s a lot we can do to ensure that you’ll still end up with photos that are beyond your wildest dreams. No doubt you’ll still want to get some photos of the two of you in the grounds with your venue as the backdrop. Therefore I’ll advise you what to bring along if the forecast looks unfavourable. Using the right lighting we can then still get all those lovely documentary style and group / family photos inside. We can also venture outside later in the evening, perhaps once the weather has cleared up, to soak up a gorgeous sunset or capture some lovely night time shots (similar to those you see in my portfolio), again using the correct lighting equipment and technics.
What if you haven't photographed at our venue before?
What happens if you are ill?
How far do you travel?
Should we have a pre-wedding / engagement photoshoot?
How do I make a booking?
What equipment do you use?
I use high end Sony camera bodies and lenses plus a range of lighting equipment and techniques. I always have 2 cameras physically on me at any one time plus one in the kit bag. My 2nd photographer will also have one, possibly 2.
When will you back-up all our wedding photos?
They are being backed-up all the time as each camera has 2 cards in them. I also then take another back-up of everything on to my laptop during your wedding breakfast. I then use this back-up to create your same day wedding slideshow that I shall look forward to displaying to you and your guests during your evening reception.
