There are so many exciting plans to be made. Who's going to be your bridesmaids. Who's going to be best man or men depending how brave you are when it comes to the speeches! Venue, dress, suits, cake and then,
"who do we choose to be our photographer?"
Recommendations may come from family and friends. Looking through websites. There's wedding fairs and social media but ultimately it comes down to you and what you need for your day.
Listed below are a few questions you might be considering when making that search. I've briefly answered those here for you but there's nothing quite like getting together for a chat or even a phone call to really help you decide if I am the right person for you. We'll start with...
"Do we like their style of wedding photography?"
Have a wander through my website and social media pages. It will give you a good idea of how I work and what I can bring to your wedding. I like a good mix of natural 'in the moment shots' plus a dash of creativity with your 'away from the guests' photos! Nothing too dramatic. You won't be climbing trees and neither will I!
When it comes to editing I prefer colours to be natural and reflect all that you chose for your day so I'm afraid there will be no arty dark purple tones or pale pastels. Just beautiful, vibrant colours with a few black and white images because, with careful selection of the right ones, they can give a photograph that extra special depth of emotion that you'll love.
"Do you cover our area?"
I am based in Somerset in the gorgeous South West of England. Covering Somerset, Dorset, Devon and parts of Hampshire and Wiltshire if you are further afield give me a call and I will see what I can do.
"Are you available?"
Please get in touch through the contact page on here or by phone, messenger, text or carrier pigeon (if they can find me) and don't forget to let me know the date of your wedding.
I am a full time photographer so if your wedding is taking place mid week then that's not a problem at all.
"Do we like them?"
Now there's an important question! Not only will you want someone who will do a great job but also help you feel confident and relaxed on your wedding day and get on well with all your guests.
I just love a good wedding. I revel in the fun, laughter, emotion and sheer joy of the day. Getting to photograph them are an absolute pleasure for me. I have quite a sense of humour which I hope brings out the best in everyone. If people are smiling and laughing I'm photographing.
"What will it cost?"
Price is a consideration for most which is why I try to make everything simple and transparent right from the start. On my Prices page you can see all that I offer and the costs plus the ability to make up your own package should you prefer. Changes can always be made later on should you wish even after the wedding if you wanted an album and didn't go for one at the time.
I do have plenty of sample wedding albums to look through when meet up which can help you decide what works best for you.
What happens next?
If you like everything you see on my website and you feel I could be the one for you then get in touch with your date and we'll arrange to meet up. I'll provisionally hold the date for you and once you have confirmed your decision to book me then a small booking fee becomes payable to secure your day. After that I'll be in touch to organise your engagement shoot if you are having one plus all the consultations required to have your wedding day photography plan in place.
Sit back, relax and most of all, have fun.
