How it all works...

As your photographer it’s my job to get as many awesome images of the day and make sure the photography is stress-free and enjoyable. You’ve spent a lot of time planning and designing the look and feel of your wedding and I want to catch all of that detail and atmosphere in the pictures that will be your record of the day. 

Booking

Once you’ve decided that I’m the guy you want to shoot your wedding all you have to do is sign an online contract and pay a 20% deposit to bag the date as yours. Check out this sample contract here to see what you’d be signing up to.
 
After you’ve booked me in we can keep in touch by email (but WhatsApp seems a bit more immediate and less faff these days so that’s quite popular with my couples) up until your wedding day just to make sure timings and locations are all sorted out and agreed. I have a wee questionnaire that I send people a week or so before their wedding which captures some info about your other wedding suppliers, parents names, bridesmaid/bestman names, etc which all helps keep me right on the day!

On the day

I’ll turn up sharp and will be turned out in my glad-rags which will usually be shirt and trewz and sometimes a tie, depending on how hot I think it’ll be. Sometimes I’ve gone full-on kilt mode but usually only if I’m shooting a pal’s wedding.

I definitely WON’T turn up in double denim, fear ye not…well, not unless that’s the theme of your wedding of course.

And from there I’ll just shoot away and get all the best shots of the day.


 


At some point after your ceremony we’ll spend 20 minutes or so getting a few shots of the two of you and any posing you’ll do will be simple, quick and feel totally natural. I always try and recce a venue for nice backdrops for these shots so there’s no humming and hawing on the day. And once we have some great shots you’ll be back to the best party of your lives before your guests even notice you’re gone.

While you and your guests are tucking into your meal I will go and find a quiet spot to eat something too/ recharge my inner battery and I also use this time to have a quick whizz through the cameras and review what I’ve already shot.

At the evening reception I’ll stick around to at least the agreed time and will only ever leave if I feel I’ve got a good spread of the party shots ( and had enough cake. I love wedding cake).

After the wedding

The day after your wedding, I aim to send over a few preview images so you can swoon over how great you both looked until you get the full selection about 3 weeks later. At that point you’ll get a link to your password protected online gallery which you’ll also be able to share with friends and families. You’ll also get a USB memory stick in a snazzy wooden box with all the high resolution images on it. This is included in the overall fee. No watermarks, no hidden extras to pay.

If you’ve chosen one of the book options as an upgrade to your package you’ll pick 80-100 images to go in the book. I’ll then create a layout for you which you will get to see and make changes to before I order the book. I can also help by suggesting a sequence of images for you if you if are struggling to choose a final selection, some folk struggle to narrow it down!


If you need help after the wedding getting prints made up and frames sourced I can offer some advice, more than happy to help!
