My work suits couples who are ready to laugh a lot. You can relax knowing that you can trust that I will be there to get all the details, people having a blast and some EPIC couple shots! Being described as “Present but never intrusive” made my day. I love being there, breathing it all in with you, slowing the time down, so photographs take it all in and as it feels like it whizzes by for you I have got lots of gorgeous moments you didn’t even know were happening! My style has been described as “showing genuine love, joy and intimacy full of energy and heart.” I feel so lucky that I love all things weddings. (I still have to hold back the tears during speeches!)
I love getting to know you both on the run up to the day. So often guests assume I am an old friend as on the day they can see how comfy you are having me around, for me its super important that we can get to know each other a bit more before the big day and can hang out as friends. Its always fab to have a meeting 3-5 weeks before your wedding date, this means we can go through the final timings & details for the day and also explore your wedding venue. Typically pre shoots are mid week and evenings so your venue is not busy and we can also time our pre shoot to a day you have a meeting with your wedding co-ordinator or a food tasting. It is a super chance to hang out, feel what it's like to be in front of the camera, shake off any camera shy nerves & get some awesome pics too. BONUS! Feedback has always been people feel far more relaxed about the photos on the day once we have done a pre shoot.
Let me show you what pre wedding shoots look like as they are rather fun and lovely too.
I want you to know I have your back all day - helping Brides with beautiful flattering light & also being there to grab you a tissue, bustle your dress and get you a plaster when your shoes rub. I got you! Grooms no fear I got you too - you need extra water before the speech, help with your buttonhole or lost mums gifts - Don’t panic I am there for you too.
If you are a couple who can’t wait to take a walk on the day, just the two of you (with me!) to take in that you’ve just got married, then we are gonna have a blast! I love the few moments we get time for couple shots - Let these photographs celebrate you guys, your personality, let go & just be - I will work hard on getting variety, epic shots, genuine smiles & joy, use your wedding venue as a gorgeous back drop & use stunning light - You just gotta look in love.
With all packages you will receive:
An initial online meeting with me to discuss all things wedding or if you're not too far away we can meet for a coffee instead.
Included in all packages is the PRE WEDDING SHOOT. A little meeting to run through all details, meet up, explore your venue & have a chance for a practice shoot.
Once you have had time to look through your USB you can then get in touch and order your thirty 9×6 professionally finished prints of your choice printed by a fab specialist print company in Scotland.
I love sharing some pictures super quick! You don’t want the first images of your wedding on social media to be someones naff iphone pic! So I aim to have a selection of sneak peeks up within a couple of days on my social media - and then a full blog of between 100-150 images edited and ready to show you within 2 weeks of your wedding so you can show off your lovely images as soon as you are back from honeymoon. These blog images are sent to you first on a slideshow before they are posted online and I will also send you a super easy to follow download & saving link so you can use these pics for printing/presents/thank you cards asap.
The full collection of images tend to be ready approximately 8-10 weeks after the wedding date and come on a little eco-friendly wooden USB with all of the high-resolution, fully edited, print ready images. Not watermarked nor protected – you can print and hand them out as often as you like! Make wallpaper if you so wish! The number of hours I am at your wedding will effect the number of images you get back but I always aim to provide at least 500+ images from every wedding. Lots of gorgeous happy images to make your heart happy!
With over 16 years of shooting weddings I am told I am pretty good at it ;) I can help you find other suppliers like your band or makeup artist, I am happy to assist you with working out the timings for your day & what group shots you really need. I am a fountain of wedding knowledge so feel free to pick my brains. When you build a super team around you on the day and you know they are sorting everything you can really relax and just ENJOY the ride!
so who will rock up at my wedding?
When you book one photographer it will always be me. When you book two photographers you will book me and one of my trusty team. If you book two photographers, the second photographer will also try and attend the pre-wedding shoot so that you get to meet us both before your wedding day. Two photographers is not double the cost but does mean you get double coverage of the ceremony if we’re not allowed to move around and you could also get ladies & gents ‘getting ready’ shots.
If you decided to go ahead and book - I would send you a contract and picture list - Contract says I promise to turn up with my cameras and you promise to look in love & get married! There are a few bits in the contract about posting pics on social media & cancellation policy but no hidden secret big words!
Once you have booked, signed and sent your contract, you will pay a £200 deposit that holds me and the day. You pay the rest in two payments: 1) three months before your big day and 2) a month prior to the day.
As well as taking lots of fun & happy heart photographs - DID YOU KNOW I ALSO SHOOT HIGHLIGHT WEDDING VIDEOS! Yes you heard that right - Working on my own can provide you with a 4-5 minute highlight video as well as photography! Wanna know more?
I have indemnity insurance and public liability and if your venues requires to see these just shout and I can easily email them over.
You can add a VIDEO HIGHLIGHT PACKAGE to your photography package too. There is an additional fee of £600 to get a video too (this is only available if I am also shooting your wedding photography) It's a great way of watching back the day, set to music, showing lots of little clips - *No full audio/video of ceremony or speeches. Smashing video of all the best bits mashed up for your pleasure!
Albums, further prints & framed prints are also available, you can pre order these before the wedding, have friends and family buy gift vouchers towards an album, or make your decision on getting an album when the time is right way after the wedding.
Only additional cost is for travel and accommodation if your wedding venue is more than 90 mins from where I live.
