Events and occasions
For events and occasions I offer a combination of reportage style photography which captures the atmosphere of the day and natural, relaxed group portraits. I can cover part or all of an occasion depending on your need. I’m experienced with weddings, christenings, baptisms, birthday parties and naming ceremonies.
Before the session: Before we even meet we will chat on the phone and you can tell me all about the day you have planned. This is your opportunity to communicate what you really want. Some occasions such as birthday parties will be more straight forward and self explanatory. For others such as weddings - I will need to know the details of your schedule and what you would specifically like captured.
The details: At least a week before the event I need the addresses of any locations and a list of important times. Essentially I need to have in writing where you want me to be and when! For longer events such as weddings I will usually recce the venue before the day. For shorter occasions like birthday parties I might ask you to send me an image of the venue.
The day of: I will work to the schedule that we have discussed together. In between group photos and capturing the moments you have asked for, I like to capture the atmosphere and take candid photos of guests.
Hair and makeup: I leave your hair and makeup to you. Trust me – it’s better that way! It’s a good idea to bring a mirror and your makeup with you on the day.
Your images: A link to a gallery of the final edited images will be ready for you to view between 3-5 days after the event. Here you will be able to select your favourites and choose from the variety of download packages that are available to buy online.
Feel free to email me with any questions you might have. Thank you, and I look forward to meeting you soon!
