First UP: Let's keep in touch!
It might feel like your wedding is AGES away (though I can assure you it'll come round way quicker than you expect!) so let's keep in touch. Instagram, Facebook, Email - whatever you like! I love to chat with my couples leading up to the day - I enjoy getting to know you better and genuinely look forward to hearing how your plans are coming along. I'll lend a hand wherever I can, so if you want to run anything by me or ask any advice, go for it! (Think of me as an honorary bridesmaid!) Or if you just want to send me a funny wedding-related meme or reel then I'm here for those, too! Haha!
NEXT: Pre-Wedding SHoot!
Don't forget you have a lovely couples session to look forward to (included with full-day wedding bookings). If we haven't met in-person already - this is our chance! We can hang out, grab a drink, chat (I'll take some pics, too!) and generally just get excited for your wedding!! I usually do these locally to me, but am happy to discuss locations. If you're not local I could maybe meet you at your venue or somewhere halfway?!
I am happy to do these anytime between booking and 6 weeks before your wedding day. A few months before is best; this gives me chance to get them edited and back to you in good time in case you'd like to use any on your invitations or wedding decor/countdown announcements!
THEN: The QuestIOnnaIre!
6 weeks before your wedding I'll be sending you a questionnaire to complete. By then, it's likely you'll have finalised all your timings and decided on any specific photographs you'd like to have taken.
I'll use your answers to help me approach your day in a way that best suits your needs. I'll have it to hand on the day so that I can refer back to it, making sure I'm in the right place at the right time, capturing all the bits that are most important to you! (I mean, obviously I'll be 'doing my thing' and capturing as much as I can anyway, but it's good to pre-plan the group shots and that sort of thing!)
**Little reminder that your balance is also due, 30 days before xx**
At last: THE BIG DAY!
It'll be here before we know it!! I'll send you a reassuring message in the morning to let you know I'm on the way and a give you a rough ETA. Be ready for me to give you a BIG 'Happy Wedding Day!' squeeze before I set my cameras up! Then off we go...eeeek!
