Wedding Photography for Romantic & Relaxed Couples

ElsieLove

I'm a digital wedding photographer with a light & airy edit. My approach would fall under the 'lifestyle category' where your images are captured in a candid way, with a little direction & styling - thus making the images approachable & relaxed. 

How would you describe your style

What back up measures do you have in place?

Firstly I always have two sets of equipment with me on your wedding day. If for any reason I were to become unwell and unable to photograph your well, I work with a network of photographers who would be able to step in.  

I would always recommend adding a second shooter to your wedding package. The 2nd photographer would cover the same hours, be able to photograph the groom preparation insuring an even story is being told through out your gallery & wedding album. During the Ceremony & Reception they will be able to capture alternative view points, such as groom reaction, more of the guest's reactions & beautiful candid's during the day. At speeches whilst I am capturing the reaction of the Top Table the second shooter would concentrate on the guest tables. 

Should I add a second shooter

You receive a minimum of 350 images, all edited in my bespoke style.
On average a wedding will have around 600 images in their final gallery for a 8-10 hour wedding. 

How many images do I recieve?

On your booking form I provide space for a maximum of 10 formal group images. My couples like to keep to a small number of formal images that are usually captured during cocktail hour & then any other group images are captured in a more candid way during the day. 
Most of my couples aren't bothered by a whole group photo but I can absolutely accommodate whatever images you want. 

Do we have to have Group images

I absolutely travel. It's one of my favorite parts of my job, being able to travel the UK & Internationally, exploring new locations with couples. 
All prices quoted at the time of booking are inclusive of Travel. 

Do you travel?

YES!!

Do you have insurance

I provide my couples with a sneak peek of a handful of images the day after the wedding. The Slideshow highlights of the wedding will be a available 2 weeks after the wedding & final gallery delivered 6 weeks after the wedding during peak season (May-Sept)

When can we expect our images

When you ready to discuss your wedding day further please fill out the contact me form. 
Following this I we will have a relaxed chat, I will provide you with my wedding experience guide. 
When your ready to secure your wedding date I will provide you will a booking form, wedding contract & invoice for your deposit of £200.

The final balance will then be due 4 weeks prior to your wedding day

How do we book?

I do not offer discounts for Mid Week or out of season weddings as the process, hours and time is exactly the same as if it were in peak season

Do you discount your prices for midweek or out of season

I take care of you as though you are family. We discuss your wedding day in detail, the timeline, how to get the best out of images.
We can discuss adding a venue tour to your package also. 

What happens after booking?

We of course can add a wedding venue visit prior to wedding package. I love meeting my couples at the venue in a relaxed environment for you to show me what you love about the venue & discuss areas for your photographs

Can we arrange a site visit prior to the wedding day

I don't provide the raw images. I select the images for final edit & delivery in line with my high standard. The images that are left out of the gallery are those that perhaps eyes are closed, I am getting the lighting right on the images so are duplicates with over or under exposed lighting.
I don't cull the images based on you receiving a specific number of images. 

Can we RECEIVE the Raw images

Images are provided on an online gallery. You are able to download the images in high resolution format to whatever device you would like. Images stay in the gallery for 3 years & then are removed so please insure you back the images up. 
The gallery can be easily shared with family & friends who are also able to download the images

How are images Delivered

I love creating your wedding album, my heart & soul goes in to the design of the pages. 
The initial stage would be for you to favorite 40 images from various parts of your wedding day via your online gallery. 
I will then use these images to create your album. 
Upon creation of the first draft I will provide you through your gallery the page designs of which we will discuss if you want to make any amendments, add additional pages etc. 
I will go away and make the desired changes or process the order at this stage.
I will not process the album order until you are fully happy with the design.
