There is no limit of photos that are captured on the day. I take a lot of photos, thousands! (It's hard for me to STOP shooting!) I will then go through them all and edit the best of the bunch to ensure you get a great variety! A lot of photos will be duplicates of the same/similar photo so I like to filter through them all so you don't get multiple of the same picture. For a wedding, I will usually provide around 500 photos.
The editing process usually takes me around a month (give or take, depending on the size of the wedding)
But fear not! I will send you a few edited photos either the night of or the day after your wedding so you have a beautiful photo to post on your socials! I will also post a couple of sneak peaks on my Instagram too!
What I do after the shutter clicks is just as vital to the final product as when I first capture the photo so I do not provide RAW files. I deliver the retouched images for your use, as these are the final product and properly reflect the quality of my work that you are familiar with.
I am not the type of photographer that will make you stand and smile for the camera. We will only really do that for the formal family photos after the ceremony but then after that I just want you guys to have fun and relax! It's your special day and I want to capture all those special moments of you and your partner after the ceremony when the stress of the day has gone! I love candid photography! The less you look at me, the better! I do like to give direction and I will gently direct you from time to time to make sure we have the right angle, but hopefully in a way you won't even notice.
I do occasionally bring an assistant depending on the number of guests and bridal party, but I find most weddings only really require 1 photographer.
If I bring an assistant, it will most likely be my partner Anthony who is a fantastic photographer in his own right! If you see any photos of me, they are more than likely taken by him!
To secure your date, I require a 20% deposit (non-refundable) and then the final payment within 2 weeks of the wedding day.
