What to expect on your wedding day ...
My package is for 8 hours, so for example on your wedding day, I will arrive 1.5-2 hours before your ceremony, so I can capture the bride and the her ladies getting ready. No one needs lots of photos of them with curlers in their hair! This is enough time for me to get shots of the dress, details, the bridesmaids getting ready, and the brides final touches of make up and her getting dressed.
Please try to allow 15 min before we head to the ceremony, so I can get some portraits of you and your bridesmaids and family.
If the groom and the boys are interested in photos , and nearby, I can visit them too.
This is where a second shooter may be required.
I have found that having a list of must have family photos, means that after the ceremony, we can get those done nice and fast before family escape!! I have found that this is often where things get slowed down.
I have become pretty good at rounding up family, and if you have an MC they can also have a family photo list so we can call people for photos.
Also try and allow 30 min just to relax and greet your guests, and have a drink!
Once you have a " basic run time" , ie what time you are having dinner, etc we can work out how long we spend on our fun creative photos. I generally recommend we spend about an 1.5 - 2 hours ideally on these photos.
(We may need more time, if we need to drive to our chosen photo spots.)
This amount of time gives us some wiggle room if things run a bit late during family photos or ceremony, and gives us plenty of time to get great photos. Most importantly, you are also not away for hours from your guests. Because how often do you really get to see most of them.
First look photos are a great way to get the photos done before the ceremony so you can relax and spend more time with your guests . We can go through ideas for this together.
I will make sure you and your bridal party has a fun relaxed day, while getting beautiful, natural shots!
I encourage the bridal party to bring some drinks and nibbles with us on location. After the creative photos, I will capture your arrival and entrance into to your reception, speeches and your first dance, normally easily fit into the 8 hours.
Sneaking out of the reception for 15 min of sunset photos is always beautiful and often makes for the best photos of the day.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
As well as the wooden usb , I include 10 square prints and 25 6x4 prints with every package, because it's nice to have something to hold.
Add stunning, white framed, fine art prints onto any wedding , engagement or family portrait package. Choose from one 11x14, or two 8x10 images. The print has a heavy feel ready for framing.
