Booking your wedding photographer is a big decision and can’t be rushed into.
It can take time to build a relationship and get to know if they are the right person to be spending your wedding day with you both.
I take wedding bookings up to 3 years in advance and this can be very important if you are looking at popular dates such as Bank Holidays or Saturdays in August.
If you have a date in mind, use the contact me page to say hello and let me know what date you’re looking at. I can check my diary for availability and answer any initial questions you may have.
If that all fits into place, I tend to suggest we meet for a walk and talk, possibly at your venue but that’s no essential yet and I’ve found that Zoom meetings can be incredibly handy and a great place to start.
When we do meet, either face to face or digitally, I like to take a few notes as you tell me all your plans and ideas, this gives me a better idea of who you are and what is important to you. We can discuss the different package options and how to personalise this for you.
Once I’ve written them up, I email you over the notes, a copy of my contract and details of how to pay the deposit for if you do choose to book me.
From there it's totally up to you, there is no pressure to book and you might find that you’re able to attend one of the many wedding fayres I attend every year. Or you may feel that you’d like to meet again actually at the venue. I’m happy to spend as much time getting to know you as you’re willing to give!
The date is only secured once you have paid the deposit but of course, that date can be amended if things change as they have recently.
Once you’ve paid the deposit and the booking is confirmed, I love to see and hear any news or updates about the day and encourage you to ‘spam’ me with your wedding plans or pictures. We can meet as often as needed but I like to have a final meeting within 4 weeks of the day to firm up all the details.
