Today I’m going to go over what you can expect when you choose me as your wedding photographer.
Read on below to find some information about what you can expect from me from the first time you email me to when I deliver your beautiful wedding photographs.
Typically, I receive most first enquires by email. Whether you’ve emailed me directly or you’ve used the contact form on my website I will reply within 48 working hours. I will first let you know if I am available on your wedding day.
If I’m available I’ll email you over a brochure that has the package details, a little bit about how I work, what you can expect & information about extras such as albums. I will also include a link to a full wedding day gallery so you can see what a full wedding day coverage looks like.
If unfortunately I am not available I will send over a recommended list of other people that I know & whose work is amazing.
Meeting in person is always a great idea at first but not always possible due to travelling for work & your own work schedules. As my weddings are not always local to me then an in person meeting may not be possible.
If you can meet up somewhere local to me then that’s great, if not then I will arrange a Skype or Face time meeting so we can at least see each other while we chat.
I love hearing about your wedding plans so it’s a great way to make sure we are a right fit for each other & what you want from your wedding photography is something I can give to you. It’s important to me to make sure that you love my approach to wedding photography & you love what I can do for you.
When you decide to book me as your wedding photographer (yay!) then I will first send over an electronic contract with all of the details about your wedding day in as well as a booking form that can all be filled in online.
At this point you will also need to pay the £250 booking fee to secure the date. Once that’s done, you are all booked in & we can go to the next step! How exciting!
Keeping In Touch
I love following my couples on social media, usually Instagram if you have one. It gives me a unique insight into your daily life, the people that are important to you & I can usually keep up to date with your wedding planning. You can also follow me on Instagram : @sfrfifef to keep up to date with what I’m up to!
If at any time you want to contact me with any questions in the run up to your wedding please feel free. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Two – Three Months Before The Wedding
I will email or ring you at this point to touch base & send over the final invoice for the remaining amount. I will also send over a planning form for you to fill in which gives me all the timelines that you have for your wedding day which allow me to see what the day is going to be like.
If you haven’t done so already, we will book in your pre wedding photo shoot if you have decided to go for one. I love photographing you both in a shoot before the wedding! This allows you to feel more comfortable being photographed in a relaxed, no pressure environment. They are also a lot of fun! Read here about what to expect from your engagement shoot.
A Few Weeks Before
I’ll get in touch with your this point to make sure that no timings or locations have changed.
The Big Day!
It’s finally here! How exciting!
This is when all your planning comes together & creates the most brilliant day! I’ll be there sharing your day with you capturing all those amazing moments. Most of the time you won’t even notice I’m there. As I photograph most of the day in a candid, documentary style I’ll be capturing the story as it unfolds.
I keep an eye out on the timings throughout the day & your schedule to make sure I can be as flexible as possible if timings don’t first go to plan.
One – Two Weeks After
In this time I’ll send you a little preview of the wedding day. I’ll send it to you in a private preview gallery. If you want to use any images as thank you cards just let me know & I can email you a high resolution copy for printing.
Usually, I would also share a small preview on Facebook & on Instagram as well.
Six to Eight Weeks After
This is when you get your full private online gallery. I love it when couples make a big thing about going through them for the first time. I recommend you sit down together & really enjoy the moment of reliving the day in all it’s delicious glory!
You are able to download all of the images at this point if you like or you can download photographs individually. From the gallery you can also order prints & wall art if you’d like.
Eight to Ten Weeks After
This is when you will receive your USB & prints box. We will also go through the design of the album at this point as well.
So there we go! That’s a quick look at what you can expect from booking right through the wedding day. If you’d like to get in touch then you can pop over to here & start the enquiry process.
As a Sheffield wedding photographer I am based around Yorkshire. However, I can & will travel wherever you are!
Happy wedding planning!
