If you’ve not already read the sample day I’d suggest you do so now – it gives you a really strong idea of how we can work together on the day. My standard package contains everything we say I’ll do on the sample day and the following:
An engagement or family shoot to suit.
For more info on this please see the engagement shoot page HERE.
Ok this used to be called a consultation but that didn’t do it justice. Basically let’s go to the pub or out to dinner together so we can get to know you, how you tick, how you got together and what’s important to you both. It’s a lot better for all of us if it’s informal but also gives me the chance to see you being you and how you are with each other. It also means you can make sure you’re comfortable with me. I’ll also bring previous albums with us to show you and hopefully inspire you for some new ideas. We will need to do some paperwork as well – just the usual will do’s, can’t do’s, where to do’s and when to do’s.
Online access to your photographs.
I normally supply 500 finished, colour corrected and polished photos from your wedding day and 80 from your engagement shoot. Don’t be hugely surprised if it’s more though - to my mind there is no point in simply throwing away memories to hit a number. You’ll also have access to a Smartphone App that you can view, download and save your photos on your device: you can also share this with friends and family if you so wish.
I always try to turn your photos around as quickly as possible without cutting corners and compromising on the quality. Even in the height of wedding season I am normally turning photographs around in 4 weeks maximum. This can be left open via a dedicated link for all to see or password protected if you’d prefer. Let me know if you'd like/prefer a USB key instead - it's easily sorted.
As part of the package you get a 10”x10” 20 page album of your favourite photos put together with custom backdrops and your input. We normally suggest you both join me one evening after we’ve sent you an initial proof of our ideas to go through and amend as appropriate. You can also optionally upgrade the sizing or number of pages or receive half sized “parent” books for your coffee table or for important friends and relatives. Feel free to take a look at a few examples of previous Albums on our samples page.
Photofilms, Videos and UNUNUN-films.
I also put together a video montage of your photos to licensed music of about 4 minutes in length perfect for sharing on Facebook or Vimeo with friends and family. Alternatively I can make an UNUNUN-film (Uncut, Unedited, Unblinking) for you a couple of days after your wedding so you can relive and recall your day in doublequick time. You can also choose instead a “Photofilm” version which is includes recorded speech and your words from your special day such as your vows, the readings and the speeches to make it all complete. Examples of all the options are shown on the VIDEOS page.
I always like to share one of my little digital camera’s with either a bridesmaid, page boy or a little one. It's not uncommon for the bridal party to get involved as well: the below being a case in point. Firstly it’s great to keep them entertained and involved in your day. But also they often have a different view of the day and helps us tell your story from their eyes too. It can make for some really special photos on the way to the church or at the venue. All we ask is we get the camera back in one piece.
I’ll always look to make bespoke packages for you if preferred – if there is an element which does not fit for you or needs changing please simply pick up the phone and let us know so I can cost accordingly.
