INVEST IN PHOTOGRAPHY THAT YOU ARE EXCITED ABOUT!
Choosing a photographer is hyper critical as it's not just about the important wedding photos, there is no other supplier on your day who is with you all through your wedding, helping to guide you through the happy, stressful, intimate moments, plus all the bits in between. I care a great deal in helping you have an amazing day, plus I want to make sure the photography and your wedding day schedule flows beautifully together.
To help with your decision and to try and make it super easy my offer and pricing is; clear, honest and transparent.
On your wedding day: One photographer (me!) to start three hours before your ceremony, photographing all the way through the day to first dance and then, approx. 30 minutes of dancing afterwards.
No later than six weeks after your wedding, you will receive your wedding photos.
'The Prep to Party' also includes:
Access to my brain, full of loads of exciting tips to help you plan your day.
A meeting prior to your wedding to talk through your plans.
A processed wedding story of high resolution print-ready images on a USB.
Private online gallery, to allow you to share with family and friends.
I receive over 400 enquiries a year, some couples book two years in advance, and I do limit how many weddings a year I take on so it’s important to contact me promptly to check I am available for your date. Then to secure me for your wedding, a booking deposit of £300 is required.
A common question asked is how can one price cover the differing ceremony and first dance times, do you adjust the price? Well, frankly, no. Unless you are having something hyper unusual such as a super early start time or a mad late first dance time, THE ONE PRICE APPLIES. It's a scope based offer, rather than a time attendance offer, which if things run a bit late as they do more often than not at a wedding I'll still be there to happily photograph all of your day as planned.
Yes! Choosing a wedding photographer can be tough, I hear this so many times. Style, budget, professionalism, integrity, portfolio, what is actually included (or not) in the offer, all have to be considered by you, the couple. The brain can go in to a melt down trying to balance it all out.
Your final decision should not be being based on pure logic alone, i.e. how good they are at taking wedding photos, how much they cost, etc. Your wedding day is a unique magical experience and you need to choose a photographer that helps you enjoy this adventure from the very beginning to the very end.
If you are working your way to a final selection my advice is to please do your research and make sure that decision is made not just on price and pretty featured photos alone, but on service, personality, professionalism, and that undefinable magicness on how much I/they love being a wedding photographer.
And if you need a final bit of advice when looking through a wedding photographers portfolio: Ignore our pretty photos ! Look at loads of BLOGS to make sure every part of the day from prep to party is photographed to the same standard as the pretty ones we have showcased.
Additional options; these do not necessarily have to be included when you book, you can add these later.
A guaranteed fun time either at your venue or a location of your choice, to provide you with a beautiful set of portraits in preparation for your wedding day.
