My approach to weddings is to actually get to know my clients and their exact requirements. There is no going back so I want to give you exactly what you want. I spend some time prior to the wedding getting to know what you want and what we can achieve. It is perfectly fine for you to have no idea (its pretty common) as we can talk it through before the day
I typically arrange a engagement shoot one month before the wedding which acts as a beautiful way to see how we all work together, what you can expect on the day and give me an understanding of what your must have shots are. It is also a great way of getting you used to being in front of a camera, while getting some lovely photographs. You will also get a chance to know what I will need and have an opportunity to ask me anything about the day or about the photographs.
On the day I am always looking for shots that capture the moment and tell the story that is your wedding. My images are all about capturing the emotion and the antics of the day. Typically start with the bridal preparations and end with the first dance. This is not set in stone and is totally flexible. Some people like me to start at the venue and finish later or any combination.
Following the big day when you are starting to enjoy the rest of your lives I am busy processing your images and creating albums. It is a long process as I do not believe in batch processing and treat every image with the care it deserves. As such at busy times it can be up to six weeks between wedding and receiving your images. Typically this is under four weeks, but I always like to allow for seasonality in my promises.
Then in the future and beyond I will retain your images on a server to back up your copy should the worst happen, it is still safe. I am also working on providing web based galleries for you and your friends to look through on a password protected basis.

- Engagement shoot and pre-wedding consultation.
