Planning Your Day
On The Day
We tailor the way we work to suit your day and will usually arrange to meet you at your chosen venue whilst you are still finalizing your plans. You’ll be at the stage where you have the venue(s) arranged, date set and are working out the final details.
By meeting you at the venue we can offer suggestions to help the day go smoothly. We would ask you to provide an approximate timetable of events and a list of any group pictures you would like to be taken, complete with the guest’s names. We’ll look for attractive settings for photographs and work out where the best light will be in order to achieve the desired results. Our aim is normally to provide a combination of the group shots you may have requested and other reportage style images.
We will also work out where to go if the weather isn’t favorable that day. We’ll no doubt take a number of test shots of you in these locations. By doing all this you’ll have a more complete vision of how you would like your day to be and we can tailor the images to suit.
We can offer a range of services that will be fine-tuned to make the most of your day. We’ll discuss the various options including when and where you would like us to capture memories of the day. This might include;-
We can attend whilst the bride/partner is getting ready, capturing those moments with friends and family. If you are both starting out from the same location we can photograph the two of you.
We are also able to offer the option of a second photographer at this stage of the day so we can capture both of you getting ready!
We’ll be there to see people arrive. Many venues allow photography during the service and we use high-speed cameras that can capture the events without using flash photography thereby making us quite unobtrusive. We may use flash for certain pictures such as the signing of the register and no doubt your guests will too. You’ll feel like celebrities in front of the paparazzi!
Depending on your choice of venues we may take some images of the both of you at this stage.
Time to celebrate your marriage/partnership! While you and your guests are maybe enjoying some refreshment, we’ll capture both the formal and unexpected images of you all. We won’t take you away from your celebrations for long, just long enough for you to have a quiet moment together and allow us to photograph you enjoying this time alone.
Later, at speech time, we’ll be there to capture some of the poignant moments and also when you decide to cut the cake.
You may have decided to let your hair down and party later along with additional guests. We can set up our lights and create portraits of your guests in their finery. A great memento for all of you. You may want to add some “props” and this can be arranged.
Viewing Your Images
We’ll turn up in good time, have our phones on silent and we’ll be dressed appropriately! You’ll have our undivided attention as this is your day. We don’t do more than one event a day and we will not send substitute photographers.
Sharing Your Images
After the big day, we’ll attend to the images and within a few days we’ll provide you with a private web link to view them. You’ll be able to watch a slideshow of them at your leisure and chose your favorites. We allow for enhancing a set number of images for each stage of the day and these will be completed after you have made your choices.
Prints, Books & Albums
After you have chosen your favourite images, we can then produce a smaller slideshow of these images on a new link that can be forwarded to your friends and family.
We will also provide you with a disc with the images on at full resolution and at size suitable for sending to friends
There are so many ways to enjoy and save your images. We’ll load them to a special gallery on Photobox and you and your friends will be able to order then as cards, prints, canvas prints etc.
We also offer a service to create a range of albums including Loxley Bellissimo leather covered albums in presentation boxes. As these are a bespoke service and have many options, we would be pleased to discuss your wishes and provide you with a price.
