Preparation of the Bride
Whether it’s a church, registry office or a civil ceremony, we make every effort to blend in seamlessly, unobtrusively capturing the atmosphere and the moment. We don’t use flash during the service, as the regular flashing light can be extremely distracting for both you and your guests, and can also bleach any atmospheric lighting used in some of the venues. Once we take up position, usually one at the front, and a second photographer at the rear, we don’t move. Again, movement can create a distraction, when all eyes should be on you. An optional 2nd photographer can capture great views of the back of the dress, as you walk down the aisle, along with those candid images of the congregation.
These can be done either at the church/registry office, or at the venue, it’s up to you. It’s worthwhile preparing a list of the important groups ahead of the day, and giving a copy to both ourselves, and the Best Man. Why? Because he will know at least half the people there, and will be able to organise the groups far quicker as we take the photographs. This saves an enormous amount of time, and means you will be back with the congregation in no time at all. Whilst Michael photographs the groups, an optional 2nd photographer is able to move quietly amongst the guests, capturing those candid images we all love. Whether it’s Uncle Joe telling that same joke for the eighth time, or those darling little children destroying the hotel! They’re the kind of events you tend not to have noticed on the day, because you are just so busy. It’s up to us to ensure you at least get to see some of those things after the event. This is why a second photographer is so important.

What Album Packages do we Offer?
Off the shelf, or bespoke?
We offer several packages, at various prices, although we also realise packages can be restrictive.
The listed packages may be exactly what your looking for, or perhaps a good starting point for something you would like to develop to suit your needs. Whatever you would like to create that’s best suited for you, just ask, as I’m sure we can help create exactly what you are looking for.
The base package is our images only package. Supplied with a USB presentation case, or DVD presentation case, as preferred. You can then choose to add an album option if you prefer. You also have the option for a second photographer, which we do recommend, enabling us to capture those candid images.
The purchase prices seen below is the booking fee, which is 10% of the total cost.
