the wedding timeline
Our style is a mixture of documentary photography and fine art portraiture. We’re very much lovers of capturing real moments with little intrusion. Kind of like a couple of extra guests at your wedding really! Documenting real life is what we love most. What started as a hobby, quickly became a job we love, capturing the beautiful love stories of amazing couples since our first wedding 6 years ago! We intend on telling every story as honest and naturally as possible (with a few gorgeous portraits thrown in!) Hopefully we’re exactly what you’re looking for!
From the minute you enquire, we are totally invested in you and what you hope to get from the day. Ideally, that’s a relaxed approach to your photos. You allow us to be in the background, capturing everything as it happens and when the time comes, take you away for a few moments together where we will create some beautiful portraits. This part is always as short and sweet as possible. We’ll keep it simple, a bit of fun and allow you to swiftly get back to your guests!
Madly in love with each other and you’re digging our work.
So you’ve decided you want to spend your days together and you’re looking for someone to capture your wedding day. Someone who takes a real approach to wedding photography without all the time consuming fuss. That’s us!
“BUT WE HATE HAVING OUR PHOTO TAKEN”
No you don’t. You only THINK you do.
I can promise you 99.9% of our couples say this. At the beginning. No one is more awkward in front of the camera than we are. We ourselves were in front of the lens recently and I can promise you, if we can do it, anyone can. There’s really nothing to worry about. A few minutes in front of the camera one day is totally doable for a lifetime of memories!
STEP 2: YOU’RE IN LOVE WITH US
You’ve been enjoying your time planning the wedding; finding the right flowers, dress, amazing venue, quirky decorations, THE DREADED TABLE PLAN etc etc. Now it’s time to slow down a little and do those last minute bits and pieces.
About a month before your wedding day, we’ll meet up for a coffee in Derry; put a friendly face to the names and just have a quick run through before the day itself. If you can’t meet up in Derry, that’s no problem. We can do Skype or a good old fashioned telephone call too! If you’re booked in for a pre-wedding shoot, I’ll bring my camera with me; we’ll have our chat and then go for a wander and get some relaxed, fuss free photographs of the two of you.
All your hard work has paid off, the time has flown in and you’re finally getting married to your best friend.
Just relax and enjoy your day! We’re totally confident we’ll capture it as beautifully real as you imagined. This is what we’re all about; raw weddings, full of emotion with a good lot of fun thrown in. Apart from a few group shots and photos of you together, your days is yours to enjoy. It will go by so quickly. We firmly believe in keeping the time away from your guests as short as possible.
Live every moment of it and try to forget about the cameras. Or play up to them! We love a bit of fun when the party gets started.
STEP 3: TIME TO SEE YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS!
RELIVE THE DAY.
After your wedding, we’ll get to work on lovingly editing your images.
For a full day wedding, you will normally receive anywhere between 400-800 hi-res images. After two weeks, you will receive your personal online gallery with some lovely previews to keep you going! Depending on the time of year your wedding takes place, your finally gallery will be ready between 8-12 weeks after your wedding date. At quieter times of the year, we will be able to get them to you sooner! We will advise you personally on when you can expect to see your final gallery. We’ll also send you a personal keepsake box with your USB and a few extra goodies.
