BEFORE your wedding
Before the wedding we will have a pre-wedding consultation, either face to face or by video call, where we will agree on the details and I will advise on planning, logistics and timings where needed. This is a good opportunity for us to get to know each other a bit better too!
LEADING UP to your wedding day
I will do my own research on the venue and scout the best locations for having your portrait sessions so I can come prepared with the information and timings to make your day run smoothly.
on the day
I like to arrive early to capture all the little details for example, the dress, shoes, jewellery and bridesmaids dresses, leaving you time for the all-important pre-wedding preparations. I can then photograph the bridal preparations and the big reveal, capturing the reactions of your closest friends and family seeing you in your dress for the first time!
Shortly after the ceremony I’ll take the time to capture any requested group photographs and your first set of portraits, with a little guidance and encouragement when needed so you look and feel your best in front of the camera and then you and your guests can relax and enjoy the day!
The creative portrait sessions are the perfect opportunity for some alone time as a newly-wed couple and give me the chance to create some fun and relaxed photographs of you together. I usually ask for around 15 minutes of your time per session, having already captured your first set of portraits with the group shots, I will ideally capture one set as the sun is setting to capture you in the golden light and then another later in the evening. I often read the weather and location to influence and guide the style of portraits we capture.
The first dance, the fun, the laughter, the speeches. I’ve got it all covered.
After the big day:
The day after your wedding I will give you a selection of highlight images for you to share with family and friends and on social media. You will receive the rest of your fully edited high resolution images between 4 - 6 weeks after your wedding.
How do you photograph weddings?
I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. I'll send you a guide to help you organise your day and it's really exciting for me to get to know you a bit beforehand and receive photos of your dress, shoes and invites etc. to give me ideas for on the day! On your wedding day, all I want to capture is the atmosphere and emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the little details in between that make your wedding unique. My approach is authentic, natural and unposed.
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm based between York and Leeds in the UK and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But don't worry, I will always try to find the cheapest way to get there because I love exploring new places and venues!
When will we get our photos?
You will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within a maximum of 8 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season). You can download all the photos from the gallery and you can also share them, choose your favourites and order prints!
How many pictures will we receive?
This depends upon the package you decide to purchase. For a package with 8 hours coverage you will receive between 300 to 400 fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity, selecting the best and most significant photos to tell your story. The longer the day, the more photos you will receive. See the packages above for more details.
What if it rains on the day?
Don't worry I always have a back up plan and rain safe locations for the family and couple portraits.
HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD WE SET ASIDE FOR PORTRAITS ON THE WEDDING DAY?
Normally I would ask you to put aside 45 minutes to 1 hour for portraits, spread across the day, and up to 30 minutes for group shots. If you need more than 5-6 group shots I will need more time to get the best results. It is suggested that we organise beforehand who you would like to have in the group shots, so on the day I can read out peoples names and organise everyone or put the best man in charge of groups on the day, that way I can snap some candid shots of friends and family members whilst they're waiting.
Do you retouch our photos?
If you have a temporary blemish that normally wouldn't be there I will kindly retouch it out. All images delivered will be colour corrected. This means image brightness, contrast and colours will be corrected before being delivered. Additional or extensive retouching is available at an additional cost.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
I recommend booking as soon as you have booked your date, that way we can check if our dates align.
How do you take payments?
I prefer to use bank transfer.
Should I buy wedding insurance?
100%! You never know what can happen. Look at what has happened this year with Covid 19. Protect yourself and your big day.
Do you work alone?
I am for the most part a lone wolf on wedding days, sometimes I bring an assistant for help with lighting. I would always recommend having a second shooter at weddings, for even more coverage.
How do you store our photos?
Throughout the day, I shoot to duplicated cards so there is no need to worry about technical failures. I will download the images twice throughout the day, on to 2 different hard drives. Once the day is complete, these are then downloaded on to a raid hard drive system and also uploaded to cloud storage. The final images will be uploaded to an online gallery and stored for 12 months at no cost.
