I (and my second shooter if applicable) will record the day in a documentary and reportage style. However I will not, and can not photograph every single person present at your wedding. If there are certain special people that you want to me focus on, you will need to tell me and point them out. Any images required other than that of a documentary nature (group shots) should be written down in detail and provided to me before the wedding day. You will receive a questionnaire 4 weeks before your wedding with room for you to write down your group shot list and any specific requests for photos.
Group shots are important, but they do take time, so please make sure when you are planning your day with your venue that you allow for 3-5 minutes per group shot. I usually say to couples that 5-10 is a good number (this doesn’t include the wedding party/ bridesmaids and groomsmen) Please note it is not always possible to do all the group shots but every effort will be made to achieve them.
Although I will endeavour to capture these photos, on occasion circumstances will occur out of my control that may mean these photos are not possible – for example, weather, unwillingness of guest, schedule…
Whilst I can’t predict the future, I can estimate the number of photos supplied based on my experience. It will depend on the number of hours I am shooting, the location, the number of guests and activities etc… Last summer I supplied an average of 550 photos per full day wedding with two photographers. With only one photographer you will usually get less photos.
I shall be granted creative and artistic licence in relation to the choice of locations and poses used. Only images that meet my creative standards will be provided. Images not supplied to the client are deleted from the systems at point of selection and are not stored in archive. Please be aware that I deliver all useable images, the only images I don’t deliver are duplicates, blinkers or blurs.
All images supplied will be edited. I do not supply Raw/unedited files.
I use a Lightroom preset which I have designed and perfected over the years. This preset is applied to all the images and I tweak it image by image where necessary. This preset is the style of my work and by booking me you will accept that this preset will be used. Please ensure that you have seen enough examples of work of both mine and other photographers to understand the different editing styles.
I will be designing your wedding album for you and I will upload your album proofs onto Sprout Studio and send you the link. You will be able to review each spread and let me know if you would like any images removed or swapped for others.
If you have a Wall Art Print included in your package I will ask you to indicate your choice by adding the image to your favourites on the gallery.
When sending out the email with the link to your gallery I will include a discount code for you and your guest to use on print orders. My job is to take amazing photos on your wedding day. Your job is to resist buying them all!
A sneak peek of 10-30 images will be posted within 48 hours of your wedding on Facebook or uploaded onto your gallery depending on your privacy agreement.
Images will then be delivered within 6 to 8 weeks.
