BEFORE THE WEDDING
So this is the lead up to the wedding, you are getting all your eggs in a row, finding suppliers, figuring out all the bits you want to make your wedding day as bloody marvelous as you are!
If you’ve paid your deposit of £400 and signed your contract you have officially booked me as your photographer! And we have some exciting times ahead of us.
I really love to meet as many of my couples face to face as I can, it’s nice to sit down and have a proper chat about the wedding. I can learn more about you two and what makes you tick and I believe this is really useful to me in capturing the little bits of you two that make your wedding day so special. Of course this isn’t always possible, some of my couples live too far away or might not have the time to meet up so in this case it’s great if we can Skype or at least have a chat on the phone. This can be done before or after you book. I hold meetings 3 Tuesdays in Manchester and one Tuesday per month in Liverpool. Tuesday just seemed like a good day to do it. FUN FACT: I have a little yellow suit case called Turn Around Tuesday… This is unrealated to anything relevant.
If you would like to team up our meeting with an engagement shoot let me know. Once you have booked your wedding with me, you can get an engagement shoot at a discounted rate, drop me an email if you would like to know more about it. It’s a great way for us to get to know one and other and have a bit of fun while we get you some awesome photos of you both in your pre-married days! Engagement shoots can take up to 2 hours, although they don’t have to last that long, it gives us plenty of time to chat, find some nice spots for some lovely creative photos and maybe even sneak a pint in if we feel like it. ;)
Keep in touch! I’ll be in contact one Month before the wedding to collect your final payment and check in and see if any of the plans have changed and the week before the wedding. If you need anything in the meantime, help finding suppliers, advice on any of the stages of planning or timings, just let me know. I have shot over 100 weddings, so I have a lot of great suppliers in my Filofax (I know, I am so cool) and I’ve seen loads of different ways of doing things so if you need any help or just want to bounce some ideas around, go for it. I am all yours!
