What Will Happen on Your Wedding Day

Let us tell you a little more about what you can expect from us on the big day…

We will both arrive at the agreed-upon time at the place where you are getting ready. We will document all the preparations, the comings and goings, and all the little details that make your wedding your wedding. And because two photographers are better than one, we can capture both the bride and the groom getting ready. These moments are some of our favourite — all the excitement in the air!

Getting ready

We will then make our way to the ceremony site to capture your guests as they arrive, along with the goings-on that happen before the bridal party arrives.

Then it’s ceremony time. With both of us there, we can capture several different angles and perspectives of your ceremony, which means that while one of us may be focused on you both saying your vows, the other can be capturing your guests’ reactions (and happy tears, no doubt) and all the little bits that you might have missed (too busy getting married aren’t you?). Two cameras are definitely better than one!

After the ceremony, if you wish, we can do some family portraits with any combination of relatives, guests, etc. that you would like. This will all be ironed out beforehand when we meet for your final consultation to discuss your shot lists and other details. And then, if you wish, (and we hope you do – because we love it) we can take some beautiful just-married portraits of the newlyweds. We usually like to just go on a walk, see what we can see, and take some shots of the two of you looking all loved up because you just got married!

Smoooch

Then it’s onto the reception, where we will both be there to document the goings-on, as well as all the important bits, such as speeches, cutting the cake, and the first dance. We will be there for as long as you need us.

We mainly work in a photo-journalistic style, so we will not intrude too much, or get in anyone’s way, and we won’t make anyone pose (save for the group shots where we’ll tell bad jokes to get everyone smiling). We like to document rather than stage. We think the best photos happen in the genuine moments when people do not even know they are being photographed.

We regard it as a privilege and an honour to be invited to document your wedding day. We know how special this is for you both and your friends and family. Let us preserve all the excitement and happiness in photos you will treasure for a lifetime and beyond.
