Choosing a wedding photographer is hard! Don’t worry, I completely get what you’re going through right now in the stages of your planning. But I want to help. I want to give you more of an insight as to what it is like working with me as your wedding photographer. I want to share with you what happens when you decide to book me and what you can expect. It’s really important to me that my clients feel secure and happy so I have come up with a process that ensures each client has a similar experience that results in everyone wanting to cheer and carry me shoulder high through their local town (actually, don’t, you might strain something).
Initial Video Call
When you enquire I will look at your date and see if I am available. If I’m available I will send you info about my prices, and tell you exactly what you get for your money and some links to my portfolio. It’s really important that clients choose me because they love the kind of images that I shoot – which are generally really informal and full of laughter. I like to snap what happens.
If you like my photography style and if my prices fit your budget, then the next step would be to have a chat via video call. It’s a good opportunity for you and your partner to ask lots of questions. Plus I can tell you about the booking process, how I work, the contract and how to approach planning your wedding photography.
After the call I’ll send you two full and complete wedding galleries to look at. lt’s really important that you look through at least two full wedding galleries of any wedding photographer’s work because by doing this you get a very good idea as to how consistent the photographer is with their style and what your wedding photos might look like.
I issue a contract to every client so that everyone is clear as to what they are buying, how much they are paying, what happens if anything goes wrong, what they can do with their images after the wedding and what I do with the images after the wedding. I am always happy to answer any questions that a client might have about the contract – ultimately clients are booking me to photograph their wedding and I want them to be really happy with what they get. Once the contract has been signed by both parties, your contract (along with all your other wedding photography info) will be stored in your own personal client portal. Only you and your partner will have access to the portal and it will contain all the important info relating to your wedding photography – you can access it any time you need to.
Confirming the Booking
To complete the booking I ask for a £500 booking fee (or if you are booking me for a small wedding, then half of your total fee). Once I have received the signed contract and the booking fee then the wedding date is reserved in my diary! Woo hoo! Clients are then left to crack on with planning the rest of their wedding. I’m always on hand to answer questions or provide recommendations of other suppliers. If you’re looking for any wedding insight, handy tips or even venue ideas check out the rest of this wedding planning advice blog posts. I’m always taking names and contact details of people who do a great job for their clients, plus I’m in a big network of wedding professionals, so I can generally make a recommendation of someone that is good.
