Photography usually begins at the brides home, or hotel, though of course, this is your choice and something we will discuss. Some brides choose for photography to capture all the getting ready preparations, while other brides prefer that photography only begins once the dress is on. This is entirely your choice.
I usually stay with you throughout the day until your first dance.
All photographs are taken digitally in colour and any photo can then be converted into black and white or sepia, or spot colour as you wish.
A pre-wedding portrait shoot is included, at Fairlands Valley Park in Stevenage, which has a wide variety of locations, including 3 lakes. One image from this shoot is included in a fullsize high resolution jpep. You can use this image in your invitations, order of service ,or menus. One benefit of the pre-wedding shoot is that we can get to know each other better. Couples have told me many times that they felt more relaxed about photography on the day as a result. This is also an ideal time to discuss your photography on the big day.
