Pre Wedding Shoots
All Wedding Packages booked with me include a pre wedding shoot, often I am asked but Why? I don’t really want one can I get a discount?
You don’t have to have one, but ultimately the pre wedding shoot is not about the photographs- thats just a bonus- its me getting to know you. I learn what makes you laugh, we find something to reminisce about on the wedding day, we walk around the venue and plan how the day will run. What locations will we use? What time will the group shots start? How long before dinner starts? These little details are CRITICAL for the day to run as perfectly as you had imagined.
We will then take a little walk and shoot some images, very relaxed and informal. I will guide you all the way and then by the time your big day arrives you are already going to know exactly what you are doing and the Photographs then seem to be the easy bit! Children and animals encouraged! This usually happens 2-3 weeks before your day.
It’s Time To Book
I require a £200 booking fee which is non refundable. This will secure me for the date of your wedding, I can not hold a date without a deposit, enquiries are coming in every day and without confirmation of your commitment to me your date may be given to another couple who are ready to book now. Each package has the same deposit so you do not need to decide on the final package until closer to the date. Full payment will be required either on or before the Wedding Day.
What If Things Go Wrong
God forbid. If the worst should happen, I have all relevant liability insurance required. Back up camera equipment in the form of 2 full frame camera bodies and choices of lenses. If it rains, we EMBRACE it! I have enough experience to provide quick thinking to the situation and we will still get you everything you need.
(Keeping an eye on the forecast running up to the big day means we can plan for such things, bring on the wellies and umbrellas! Couples have even colour coordinated these to their colour themes!)
Albums & Printing
Once your images are ready usually 3-4 weeks after your Wedding Day, Your images are available for you. Dependant on which package you have chosen you may have an album included. I personally use the Professionals at ‘Sim Imaging’ to help create your Album and you can find out about the specifics here : https://youtu.be/RvL5KFMLIKE
You have the images to use as you wish and if you feel you would like to create your own album that is up to you, they are YOURS for you to use as you wish.
However, if you choose a package with an album, we can go through your images and work out which are your must haves to be included and then I can tell the story from there. Once designed you will be sent proofs to go over and make sure you are happy before sending to print. Of Course, if you want me to design it and then send you the proofs that is fine too! Albums usually take 4-5 weeks depending on how busy the lab is.
