You’ve made contact with me, told me your wedding date, your venue(s), about your love, your family, what makes you happy. But, what happens next? If you’re unsure how many hours you’ll need me for, aren’t sure if you’d prefer a digital package, an album, wall art - I’ll guide you through, over the phone or in person, to make sure your bespoke package is absolutely perfect for you.
The boring stuff happens first - I’ll send your contract over, which I actively encourage you both to read, in full, and ask any and all questions that you may have.
Once it’s ‘signed’, I’ll send you an invoice for your booking fee. This is 20% of your package cost, and you can increase your package upto 3 months ahead of your day. Your balance is due one calendar month beforehand.
After you’ve made me yours, I’ll gladly help you find other reputable vendors. I offer no favours here, strictly people I’ve previously worked with before, who my couples have highly rated.
6 weeks before your wedding, I’ll send a short questionnaire. I’ll ask for names of your chosen suppliers, and we can finalise any formal photos that you’d like (I always suggest 15 or less separate groups, so you can spend as much time with your guests as possible). I’ll also ask about any restrictions that you’ve been advised of by your registrar, priest, or venue - please do tell me, as I’ll need to liaise with them beforehand.
On the day, I’ll arrive before you, or during your prep, and once I’ve gathered a few test shots, I’m capturing your day. Sometimes I’ll be close up, other times you won’t see me - this is true for as long as I’m with you.
I have room in my bag for lipsticks, purses, and bring my own wedding emergency kit - things like safety pins & hair clips, it’s a real bag of tricks.
Your gorgeous photos will be backed up to at least 3 places - hard drives, the cloud, etc. I’ll send you 3-5 previews within 72 hours - either via email, or via social media sharing.
You full gallery will be ready 4-6 weeks after your day. If you’d booked a digital package including all the images, you can download them all immediately. You can also upgrade to a pretty wooden USB, with room for your own & guests’ photos, too.
Should you have photos to choose for your album, this can be done in the 2 months following you receiving your beautiful gallery.. those months really do fly by, so I suggest adding some to Favourites within a week, and come back to them a couple of weeks later.
