The wedding photography progress

You’ve probably never hired a wedding photographer before, this is how I work…

Our first meeting

Let’s get together! We’ll meet, have some tea (or wine) and have a chat.  I want to hear all about your wedding, your expectations for your photographer and I can show you more of my portfolio.  Bring lots of questions to ask me!

Like what you see?

A 50% deposit* is needed to secure your wedding date and I’ll also ask you to sign my standard wedding contract.  That’s it!  I’m all yours.

* Non refundable.  I take cash, bank transfer and all major credit cards.

Your engagement shoot

I always aim to do a pre-wedding shoot, usually called an engagement shoot.  It’s a few low key hours of great photos of the two of you and I teach you the basics of posing!  It’s fun, I promise.  It’s good practice for the wedding day…

Questionnaire + site visit

2-3 weeks before your wedding day, you’ll receive an emailed questionnaire from me, covering all the details from the day – from the timing of hair and makeup to the first dance. I will also have completed my site visit (where appropriate) and might have some specific questions for you.  This is where we iron out the snags so the day runs smoothly.

After the wedding

Your sneak peek will hit the blog a few days after your wedding which will give you and your family a great overview from the day.  Final edited images will be delivered to your online gallery at most 4 weeks after wedding, with a USB to follow shortly after.

// Hilary + Diarmuid married at the Edinburgh Principal George Street Hotel

// Hawlie + Stuart married at Kirknewton House Stables

A Kirknewton House Stables Wedding A wedding usually isn't just about two people, it's about two families coming together.  Two groups of people that didn't know each other beforehand and probably wouldn't have met if two people in love hadn't decided to make it...
