Choosing your Wedding Photographer is an important decision. Your Wedding is one of the most important days of your life. It is essential that you choose a wedding photographer who fits into your plans for the day. We have a process carefully designed to make sure you get the wedding photography you want from start to finish.
Choosing your Wedding Photographer
First impressions are important when you are choosing your wedding photographer. You can contact us via telephone or EMail. We can discuss our availability, and arrange to meet with you either at our studio or in your own home. We never pressure you, and are always completely transparent.
Our First Meeting
We will meet and discuss your wedding. We are keen to understand what you are planning, and what you want from your wedding photography. We want to understand you and your plans so that we can best discuss how we can help you. We will show you some of our work and discuss some of the services we can offer. We don’t do pressure sales. This is just an opportunity to discuss how we could work together.
At the end of the meeting we hope we will leave you believing that we are the right choice to be your Wedding Photographer.
We hope you decide to book with us as your Wedding Photographer. If you do, simply complete the booking form and pay the non-refundable booking fee. This secures your wedding date in our diary. You can then sit back, knowing that you have booked a wedding photographer you can trust to provide you with pictures that you will treasure as much as the memories!
We always include a complementary engagement photo session. This can be at a location of your choice, or one of our recommended locations. During this session we will get to know each other and take some beautiful pictures of you as a couple. During the shoot you will receive advice on how to get the best from your photos. Many people are not used to posing for photographs and this is an opportunity to help you learn how to stand so that you are relaxed. This helps you enjoy having your wedding photos taken. It also ensures that you get relaxed, beautiful pictures to remember your big day. We also ask you to tell us what you like about the photos so that we can fully understand your likes and dislikes and ensure that, on your wedding day, we capture stunning images you will love.
Our inclusive packages also include a a Guest Book, or a stunning Signing Frame featuring your pictures.
About three weeks before the big day we will be in contact again. We will run through the details of the day.
- Confirmation of timings for the big day.
- Your special requests for photographs.
- Who is who of your family and friends.
We will also book a date for you to view your wedding photos.
The Big Day
We will ensure that you have a wonderful selection of photographs to choose from. Mark always takes a stunning collection of beautiful posed and amazing relaxed photos. Mark is friendly and highly professional, but above all, he knows that this is your day!
Viewing your Photos
3-4 weeks after your wedding, your photographs will be ready for you to view. On the date we agreed you will be able to see your stunning movie slideshow for the first time. It is always a magical experience to see the beautiful presentation of your stunning photos in our lovely viewing room. You will also receive your disk with all your photos on.
Your photos will also be loaded onto a private web site for you, your friends and family to view. This private web site will only be released after you have seen the photos. If your friends and family would like some prints of their own they are able to send us their order and use our online payment function. We will then send the pictures direct to them, so you do not need to worry about coordinating orders and collecting payment.
Building your album
Our inclusive packages all include a package of albums. (If you booked a digital package you can, of course purchase an album at any time. Throughout the whole process, you are in control. This is your wedding! When it comes to your album it is no different.
You choose the photos you want in your book. You choose the book you want. You choose the style of cover and paper you would like from the stunning selection available.
This is always the most difficult part for the couples who we work with. We are proud of the fact that all our customers find it very difficult to decide which photographs they are going to leave out of their album!
When you have chosen the pictures you would like included in your album, we will build an electronic version of your album for you. Many photographers just take your selection and give you the completed album, but we believe that this is your album, and you should be able to review and approve it. We make sure the album is exactly what you want before it is produced. We are happy for you to ask for changes to be made to the design, and only when you have approved the design will we send it to be made specially for you.
We also do “Parent Book” packages where you can get a package of extra copies of your book. These are included in our Gold and Platinum Packages or can be added to other packages for an amazingly small extra charge.
