Wedding day Shot list

I don't usually follow a shot list but some couple just need the extra reassurance that they are going to get the shots they want so I am happy to follow a list provided to me.

Now after a few years of sending out a basic shot list I now have a comprehensive list that you can also add too if you want to!

If you are a current client then you will be receiving this via email. 

 If you are not a client but would still love to have a copy of this list then please sign up below to receive this free wedding shot list

Wedding day workflow

Getting Ready

So now the big day has arrived!  

I will be prepared and ready to go early morning, whatever time you want your coverage to start I will arrive in plenty of time to capture all the little details that you spent months putting together, the flowers, shoes, hair clips, dresses.. the list continues and they all need to be remembered.

While I am making sure I have all the details I will be quietly taking pictures of you and your wedding party as you get your hair and makeup done, capturing your natural happiness, smiles and excitement. 

When you are ready I will take some shots of you and your wedding party.  I will then leave just before you in order to get images of the groom and his groomsmen as well as the rings and other details.

Ceremony

The big moment is about to happen!

I find out where I am allowed to stand and if I am restricted to certain places and then await your arrival.  I aim to capture as much of every moment as I can from as many different perspectives as I am allowed.

Once you have exchanged vows and you become a married couple I continue to take images of your guests and also images of you both after you sign the register ( a staged signing )

Formals

Remember, you don't have to have any formal images done at all! 

After the ceremony, while you are talking to your guests, I mingle amongst them with my camera, capturing you all naturally.  

When you are ready we then start to get people together and get the "formal" images done.  I know most couples I talk to worry about the formals as they don't like posed images.   I work fast during the formals and although it can seem "posed" this is the best opportunity to get all the family and friends together.  

Posed and formal images don't have to be just that, they can be fun and if you want to add your own person touch to them.

After the group shots are taken I quickly take you both away to get some shots of just the two of you.  I do not like to take a lot of your time and you will soon be joining your guests for your reception

Reception

After your meal/buffet and the speeches it is time for you both to just relax, enjoy the evening.  Dance with friends, have a drink, talk to friends and family you have not seen in a while and I will capture you all naturally enjoying your big day.  I capture the evening, when you cut your wedding cake and when you take your fist dance as a married couple. 

Wedding Consultation

Every photographer runs their business differently and this also goes for how they start the process of booking in new clients.

When we book in consultations it is a very informal meeting.  We go over all the details of your wedding and you get to see a variety of wedding galleries from getting ready to late evening so you can have a better view of how I work throughout a whole wedding day.  There there is no pressure to book. 

After the consultation I leave you both to have a think and a talk.  I will hold your date for a week after the consultation so it gives you both time to decide if I am the right photographer for you.

Once you have decided, I will then send you a contract that covers all the details of the wedding and also all the details of the service you are going to be receiving.  When you are both 100% happy I then send you the invoice and you pay the £100 deposit and the remaining balance will not be due till about a month before the wedding.
