Before the day
We'll have had a chat and got to know each other before exchanging the contract and booking, we can do this in person, on the phone or via Skype. The 50% deposit secures the booking.
We take a look at your schedule and I double check my logistics for the day, parking etc.
We get together a list of the group shots you would like and I make sure the timings work out.
The remainder of the fee is due a week before the day.
On the Day
Whatever time I am starting for you. I arrive early. I have two full frame, dual card cameras on me at all times.
(Canon 5dMkiii if you are interested) So I'm always fully prepared.
I have captured over 170 weddings and for me, the best pictures are when people don't even know they are being photographed.
With this in mind, I keep my shooting style relaxed and unobtrusive.
We can always take as much or as little time as you like over the group shots
and the pictures of just the two of you, keeping it as 'reportage' or as traditional as you like.
I take a little break to eat when the guests do, not only to keep me going but to give everyone a rest from being photographed too.
After the day
I love both Colour and Black and White images, so you get a version of each image in both colour and black and white. This is so you can decide which you prefer for a particular shot. I edit/process each photograph individually to achieve the best look for that particular image. This is a very important part of delivering the final product and takes up a large proportion of the overall time I spend on your wedding. I process all images as a colour file and once I am happy with the final colour image I copy and convert it to black and white and carry out further adjustments to achieve the best monochrome image.
I do all my image processing myself rather than using a third party.
The editing is very much part of the artistic process which is why I like to have total control of this aspect.
I am reliable, calm, adaptable and excellent with people, children (and dogs) of all ages and backgrounds.
I shoot every kind of wedding regardless of age, gender, sexuality or race.
Please feel free to drop me a line or give me a call for an informal chat about your requirements.
PS. I'd strongly recommend looking at full sets of photographs
to get a feel for the finished product that I can provide.
