How Your Wedding Photography Is Managed
I do not like having my photo taken and don't like posing. How can you make me look good in my photos?
I have heard horror stories of brides who do not like their photos - how do I know I can trust you to capture my day as I want to remember it?
How will my photos be delivered and can I order a printed wedding album?
How do we secure our wedding day with you?
When we have our photos taken, we can feel uncomfortable. We feel silly. However, the best photos are always photos that are either candid or posed.
Candid wedding photography looks so good because you are at ease; you are not aware of me taking your photo, so you are relaxed and confident as you mingle with guests.
Now let's take that ethos and apply this to your wedding portraits. The most simple way to create a beautiful wedding portrait is by making you feel at ease in front of the camera. I do this by posing your feet and hands because once these are in place, you feel amazing, confident, and relaxed.
I am a professionally qualified photographer with two of the most significant photographic bodies in the UK and Internationally. I hold an Associate qualification in wedding photography and Fellowship in Creative Photography.
Not many photographers hold these qualifications, and I have worked towards them so my clients can trust me to capture and create wedding photography that they will cherish.
On top of being professionally qualified, we talk at length about your likes and dislikes, what is important to you on your wedding day and how we take your wedding photography so you feel totally at ease and confident with me as your photographer.
Your photos are delivered via my iCloud-based online gallery, where you can view, share and download your images.
My printed albums are sourced in the UK to allow me to keep my carbon footprint to a minimum. Images can be selected and sent to me via your gallery area, which I shall use to pre-design your wedding album showcasing the story of your wedding day.
To book me to photograph your wedding a deposit is required. This secures your wedding day in my diary. I then forward a contract to you
