Our wedding photography philosophy

Our wedding photography philosophy is perhaps slightly different from some. 

With an event management, as well as photographic background, we have always approached weddings with an eye to making the photography flow quickly and seamlessly into your very busy ‘Big Day’.

Having also got married, ourselves, in 2008, we know first-hand how stressful, expensive…and exciting (!) this time is for the Bride and Groom, and their families.  As such, we offer simplicity, good communication and photos you can be proud of for the rest of your lives.

We know the first question (after ‘are you available on…’) most couples want answered is ‘how much will it cost?’.  For us, the simple answer is ‘what you can afford’.   

Good communication is, therefore, a priority for us – we are taking the photos for you, so what you want really matters.  We put considerable effort into making sure we all have a shared expectation of what is going to happen on the day and what is realistically achievable.   

We will draw up a proposal based on our initial face-to-face discussions with you.  This can include what type of photos you want, how many different shots, how many people you want formally photographed, how long we would be there for, travel and how you would like the final results (ie digital images and/or prints).

Once you have had a chance to discuss the proposal, we can then chat with you how we can adapt it further to meet your needs.  This usually includes adding, changing or removing some of the options, usually to either change the price or better fit the timeline of the big day.

Communication with others around you is also important to us, as on the big day we will not be working in isolation.  We will also be working with your ushers, MC and other experts, from the wedding celebrant to your reception event team.

We are also here to help you make this day as special as possible.  Know exactly what you want?  Then tell as and we will deliver.  Have no idea what poses you want?  Then let us show you some ideas and talk you through some possibilities.

We hope you enjoy looking through our wedding galleries – and please remember, too, that these photos reflect the individual personalities, dreams and expectations of each couple.  Your photos would reflect you.  

Good luck with all your planning and we look forward to the opportunity to discuss how we could play a part in making your big day something to proudly remember.

Congratulations, Elaine and Stuart
