First things first…. it’s your day!! Your wedding is not a photo shoot and we are very conscious of this fact. We understand the pressure and details surrounding the day and that's why we are here to help; from planning your itinerary, and picking the perfect package that fits your needs.
Our aim at every wedding is simple…. to capture beautiful, honest moments creatively, but unobtrusively. Your wedding is one of the most important days of both of your lives, an important inheritance for your children to come!!
Our wedding coverage is created in a story like documentary approach; we are not staging a styled shoot, but rather observing events and emotions unfolding naturally. What transpires between people on a wedding day is most important. Our motto is “Your Emotion is our Passion”, to tell your love, to tell your wedding, your most beautiful day through our photographs.
We strongly believe the foundation to capturing breathtaking, natural images on your special day relies on building a friendship with our clients. We conduct the following three stages to get your special day planned:
1. We start our friendship by you saying hello through our contact form below, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with all of the lovely details of your wedding including your date, photography budget, venue and some of your plans and ideas;
2. Once we have our introduction and your information we can schedule to sit down and meet (or facetime) to get to know each other and go over all your details. We look at examples, discuss all of the details, including your itinerary. If you don't know how much coverage you might need, we can help you determine that based on your needs.
3. Upon deciding the package of your choice or working together to create a custom package for you based on your unique needs, we move forward to booking. We save the date together with an agreement and a retainer. Let the planning begin!

Before The Wedding
As the wedding day gets closer we would like to arrange an informal meeting with you both to get to know you a bit better, get a feel for your day and to run through your times and schedule. This can be done over a coffee at a mutual location. If a meetup in person isn’t possible, no problem, we can arrange a facetime chat. We are more than happy to offer help and guidance over anything related to your wedding photography/videography, but that said, if you have specific ideas in mind, we will work with your plans. We want you to relax and know that this part of your wedding is covered!!!!
Morning of The Wedding
If you decide to book us for the whole day this normally includes the ‘getting ready’ stage in the morning. With your closest friends and family around you there are so many fun, fleeting moments from this part of the day and we love to be there to capture it all for you. Sometimes these stages of the day are held in homes or hotels so we do our best to spend time with both the bride and groom during this time and document both preparations, we can discuss your ideas before the wedding and can make a good plan based on where you would like us to be.
On The Wedding Day
On the day itself, we will arrive at the venue good and early and will be ready to start at the agreed time. We will come and say hello to you first and introduce myself to any key family members or venue staff. We work in a very unobtrusive manor, we do not like to interfere or get in the way. We will work hard in the background capturing moments on the fly. We dress professional at your wedding, normally in smart trousers, shirt and tie, we find this helps us to blend into your wedding party. We would rather be mistaken as one of your friends rather than the ‘official wedding photographer’, this helps keep us close to the action!
The Wedding Ceremony
We like to get to the church or venue at least 45 minutes before the wedding so that we can capture your guests arriving and the general build up and anticipation before the ceremony. During the ceremony itself we are very mindful not to disrupt or interfere in the proceedings. We work very discreetly and unobtrusively and do our best to blend into the background so that you and your guests don’t notice us, but making sure we capture all the key moments. Straight after the ceremony is one of our favorite parts of any wedding day, big hugs, congratulations and flying confetti! We tend not to whisk the bride and groom away for photos straight away but just let everything unfold naturally. Sometimes after this we may take a few snaps with the bride and groom and if requested we can do a some relaxed family group photos as well.
Bride and Groom Photos
After the groups we usually take the bride and groom off for a few portraits either in the grounds of the church, venue or at location of their choosing. We like to give you space when taking these photos, the amount of time for this is completely up to you, as a guide 15-30 minutes is ample when planned and location is pre-scouted. We do keep in mind your schedule for the reception venue as well.
