Below you will find everything you need to know about my wedding services including advice and tips.
From your initial enquiry to booking, all the way through to your preview and to the collection of your album.
It is advisable to contact me in good time once you’ve set your date to enable a smooth transition between enquiry, consultation and booking.
After your initial enquiry, I will pencil in your chosen date and always give you first refusal informing you immediately of any other enquiries that come in for the same date.
From this point onwards we will schedule a meeting to discuss the plans of your wedding including the photography in detail to ensure the success of your big day.
Your experience starts by entering my consultation studio which instantly wows and warms potential clients the moment they arrive. If you are unable to travel due to work schedules or distance I we can schedule a video meeting.
To book a face-to-face or video meeting please visit my consultation booking page.
During our initial meeting and introduction, with a welcoming drink, we get to know each other, establish a foundation and client/photographer relationship which goes beyond your wedding day.
A key element to choosing your photographer is having someone you are comfortable with by your side for the duration of your special day.
Timings & Itinerary
It is the photographers best intentions to advice you on the most appropriate schedule for the day.
I offer free advice and tips to make your day run as smooth as possible and organise an airtight itinerary to make sure your day runs on time.
