Getting Comfortable in front of the Camera
Benefits of a Pre-Wedding Shoot
A pre-wedding shoot offers a great opportunity for us to get to know each other better. It helps you get comfortable in front of the camera and allows me to understand your style and preferences, ensuring I capture your wedding day exactly how you envision it.
Tips to Stay Relaxed During Your Photo Session

Choosing the Right Package
Assessing Your Needs
Every wedding is unique, so it’s essential to assess your individual needs when choosing a photography package. Consider factors like the size of your wedding, the length of the ceremony and reception, and the importance of having a second shooter or videographer on board.
Deciding on the Number of Hours
The number of hours you need will depend on the rough timeline of your day. If you want coverage from the start of the day with all the pre-wedding preparations, you might want to consider a longer package.
Adding Video Coverage
Adding video coverage to your package can give you a dynamic memory of your wedding. Videos can offer a different perspective and capture moments in a way static photos can’t.
Considering a Second Shooter
A second shooter can cover multiple angles and capture moments you might otherwise miss. They can be particularly useful during larger weddings, during moments when the couple are often separated or for capturing guest reactions.
Preparing for Your Wedding Shoot
In our pre-wedding consultation, we’ll discuss details and plans for your day. This session is a great opportunity for you to ask any questions and for us to finalize the timeline and details of your wedding.
Discussing Your Expectations
In order to deliver the best possible results, it’s essential for me to understand your expectations. Whether it’s specific shots you want or a particular style you’re interested in, your input is invaluable.
Developing a Wedding Shoot Schedule
A well-planned wedding shoot schedule can ensure that the day progresses smoothly. We’ll discuss the schedule during the pre-wedding consultation, ensuring key moments are covered and that time is allocated appropriately.
Your Photos after the Shoot
Receiving your Digital Downloads
After your big day, all your wedding photos will be delivered to you as digital downloads through a private online gallery. You can view, share, and download all your high-resolution images directly from this gallery.

Preserve and display your memories through prints and albums. Let me know if you want to order prints, canvases or an album and we can discuss the available options.
Utilising the Online Gallery
