More details of the day
Please include times of: bridal prep, ceremony start/finish, dinner, first dance, cutting of the cake. Any other important elements of the day, please pop down!
Please allow enough time if you would like bridal portraits.
If your wedding is in a church, there are often strict rules regarding photography - please ask!
No worries if not, I understand this is not always possible - I can bring a pack up!
If yes, please indicate when would be the best time for this? Before ceremony? After ceremony? Please allow 15-30 minutes for this! Any suggestions or preferences on where?
Please note that rounding people up can take a lot more time than expected. It would be helpful to have a dedicated person who knows everyones names to gather up people as needed! Also, please keep group shots to a minimum where possible - around 6-8 is good.
Which photos are most important to you? *

I want your wedding photos to be flawless and beautiful. I will be unobtrusive and ready to capture your special moments as they happen Here are some suggestions:

Don’t rush your first kiss!  At least 5 seconds of kissing should be enough to make sure that myself and any videographers who you hire have a chance to capture the moment properly!

Allow 50% more time for your hair and makeup than you originally anticipated on the big day. This will ensure you have plenty of time for everything else and that if you over run – you’re not late!

To shoot a private “bride and groom” portrait session, I will need at least 15-30 minutes of your time alone at any point during the day. Please also allow 15-30 minutes after your ceremony for group photos, should you be wanting them. 

If possible, please pre-assign a member of the wedding party, family member or friend who knows the people to be in the pictures to round them up for the photos. Getting people where they need to be for the photos is by far the most time-consuming part of group shots.

Please, make sure the cutting of the cake and/or any other parts of the evening to be captured occur within the booked time.

Don’t be afraid to smile and talk to each other when you are being photographed. Don’t feel that you constantly have to stare at the camera, I want you to create memories - not awkward photos!
