What we do – the wedding photography process

Have cameras, will travel

We mostly cover Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire & Surrey. That said, we will travel further afield, our wedding photography has no geographical limits!

Before the day

When you’ve told us that you’re interested in our services, we’ll arrange to come and see you and your fiancé. If you’re using a wedding planner it would be great to meet with them too. We’ll use the time we spend with you to understand your wedding photography requirements, get to know you and find out what makes you guys tick. We can then explain the options available to you in more detail.

Armed with that understanding, we can then decide if one of our standard package options suits or put a bespoke package together for you. If you decide to go ahead, we’ll ask you to sign and return a contract with a £400 deposit to reserve your day. The remaining balance will be payable a month before your wedding day.

We’ll also give you an information form to complete, including the venue, timings, lists of group shots,  number of guests,  etc. so we can plan properly for the day. Good wedding photography comes from good planning!

When we’ve gathered all the information we need, we’ll visit the venue to scope out locations for shots in the grounds and inside the building.

That’s it!

 

On the day

First thing

We’ll meet up with you while you’re getting ready and do some makeup shots, some hair shots, some getting into the dress shots and some bridesmaids doing their thing shots.

Your fiancé is next on the list. We’ll typically meet him outside the venue and do some buttonhole shots with him, his best man and his other pals.

When you’re ready to head for the ceremony room, one of us will already be positioned near the table. The other one will be by the door. That way, we can be sure of capturing all the most interesting shots – coming and going.

 

Next thing

When everyone heads outside after the ceremony, we’ll do the group shots as quickly as we can, before they start wandering off. Don’t worry if it’s raining. We’ll have made contingency plans for that.

Afterwards, we’ll typically whisk you and your husband away to do some shots in the grounds or at the reception venue. And we’ll be there while you enjoy a glass or two of something special with your guests, before the wedding breakfast.

 

Wedding breakfast

If you’re having a receiving line, we’ll get those shots, too, as well as shots of you and your husband entering the reception room, group table shots, table decoration shots. Even the shots your parents want us to take. Promise!

We’ll then leave you in peace to enjoy your starter and main course while we, quite literally, re-charge our batteries. There’s no need to feed us posh grub, but we would appreciate a sandwich or two and a soft drink!

We’ll be back in action again for the speeches, audience reaction included. That’s another benefit of having two wedding photographers.

We’ll leave you in peace again while your guests finish their meals, after which it will be time for some shots of people milling around, enjoying a drink and a gossip, playing croquet, that kind of thing. We’ll also attempt to whisk you and your husband away for a second time, for some mood shots as the sun begins to set.

 

Cake cutting and first dance

As the finale draws near, we’ll be there for the cake cutting, followed by the first dance. The rest of the night? We’ll stay if you really want us to. But, quite honestly, it’s probably best that we don’t. We want to capture everyone at their best, if you get our drift!
