What’s included in all Wedding Photography Prices Packages
Pre Booking Consultation: Usually by phone or skype or possibly by email if preferred. Every wedding is unique, so this free consultation can be very useful in helping you decide which package is best for you. By special arrangement, our standard packages can be tailored to suit your individual needs.
Post Booking Consultation: Full post booking consultation in person, by phone or skype to discuss and define a comprehensive plan for your day. This will include your specific photo requirements, the days’ timings, location / venue planning, logistics and contingency planning etc, as well as the album, prints, gifts mementos and digital delivery choices available to you. This usually takes place about 6 weeks before your wedding and can be combined with an engagement or pre-wedding shoot.
Support: Telephone and email advice and support throughout the whole process from initial consultation to the final delivery of all services and products. This will also include, a post wedding album consultation if required, advice on image selection for albums, framed photos and digital portfolios and assistance beyond the delivery of your services and products.
Ceremony Rehearsal: We are committed to producing amazing images for you, to the point where we’ll spend our time attending your ceremony rehearsal to help prepare for your big day. The wedding rehearsal is deceptively important, this is why we include it in our wedding photography prices. Weddings require a lot of emotional presence from us as photographers, so the rehearsal is the perfect kickstarter. It helps us get in the “Zone” and allows us to meet all the important people, so that we can be sure to get lots of great photos of them. It also gives them a chance to get to know us before we show up pointing a big camera in their faces!
Attending the wedding rehearsal gives us a chance to scout the ceremony location, check for lighting problems and plan how we’ll shoot. We can chat with the officiant to find out what rules they have for photography and where we can and cannot stand, figure out if we need to use flash (if permitted) and test our camera settings. We can discuss the timings of the important points or stages in the ceremony to be sure we have access and we are ready for them. It’s also important for you and the officiant to be aware of our movements , the light and our needs as photographers. We will discuss how the bridal party should arrange themselves, remind you (the couple) to hold the first kiss for photographs and how fast people should walk, especially in the wedding procession (a really important one for us as photographers!) and how to prevent your guests jumping in front of us and ruining our shots. The more prepared we can be, the more we’ll all enjoy the day and that means better images.
Image Delivery – Private password protected online gallery: All our packages include a private, password protected online gallery on our website. You can download all your digital images directly from here directly to your PC, laptop, iPad, phone or other internet connected devices. Your Gallery can also be used for online image viewing, selection, proofing and online slide shows for you and your guests to enjoy. Your guests can also purchase professional quality prints directly from your gallery. Our website is optimised for use on mobile devices, so you can view your images and slide shows on the go…anywhere!
Online Image Selection and Proofing: Light boxes are available in your personal online gallery for advanced image sorting, organising, online proofing and selection. You can use your light box to select and proof images for inclusion in your albums, framed prints, mementos, gifts or online slideshows. You can also use the light boxes for remote online collaboration with family or friends in the image proofing, choice and selection process. You can even use your light box to jointly collaborate with us on image selection and proofing. Alternatively, the whole process can be private, just restricted to you, the choice is yours.
