How long after the wedding will the couple receive their proofs?
In most cases one to two weeks. I do all my own editing and processing, and do not outsource this. It is very important to me what happens to the pictures once they have been shot. I treat every single frame individually, and love watching the photographs emerge from an unretouched file, to the eye catching final result.
How far in advance should couples book you?
As far in advance as they can. I get booked up anything from two weeks to two years.
What information do you need from the couple before the wedding day?
An online form is sent to the couple about a month in advance asking for all the information required – names, times, numbers, post codes etc. I’m very proud of my short term memory – I learn all your close family’s names, your ushers bridesmaids etc. before the wedding, and I remember them all on the day. Then we meet to run through it all, so nothing is left to chance and no time is wasted on the day. I also use Skype and Facetime for communication throughout the planning – it’s indispensable.
