Details of Services
I would like to meet and get to know the couple prior to the wedding, in order to get an idea of what you want. At this consultation, we'll discuss the venue, the services you'd like to have, and the prospective cost. This meeting should last about an hour.
Photos prior to the wedding at the ceremony venue, usually of the bride and her mother, bridesmaids, the groomsmen, et cetera. These can be posed shots or candids. I prefer not to take photographs at the bride's home while she is getting ready. I have done this in the past and have found that there is so much going on that a photographer is very much in the way. There is a lot of stress and the photographer can really add to that. I recommend choosing a friend to take candid shots of people getting ready prior to going to the venue.
Photos of the ceremony itself. Prior to the ceremony I would like to agree on a location that will be my "vantage point". I understand that the ceremony is not all about the photos taken and therefore don't want to be moving around too much. I'd like to be in the way as little as possible.
Post-Ceremony Group Snapshots
Photos of family and friends with the couple. At the consultation, I will request a list of the groups that you'd like----I will need this list prior to the ceremony. This usually involves a lot of photographs being taken in a very short amount of time, all while rounding up large and varied groups of people. I may require an assistant or two to help gather people, and you might want to consider distributing a few copies of the photo list so people know the basics of what's going on and who's up next. I recommend that you block out at least an hour of time (depending on how many photos you want) if you choose this service.
These are the "showcase" photos, usually of just the couple. I would like to work out some ideas for this session at the consultation----what kind of shots you're looking for, whether you'd like anyone else involved, how much time you'd like it to take. I recommend that you block out at least an hour of time if you choose this service. The photos will suffer if you're rushing from ceremony to reception.
Photos of the reception following the ceremony: first dances, cake cutting, speeches. It's very difficult to me to photograph receptions in low light. I prefer not to use a flash but will if necessary. At the consultation I would like to know what shots you think are particularly important. I will stay until all of those shots have been taken.
