Collette will invite you to a consultation when you enquire. At your initial complimentary consultation Collette will guide you through a timeline of your day and if appropriate will make suggestions based on her experience. During your meeting, you will be able to discuss ideas for your wedding photography and view sample handmade wedding albums and photos from previous weddings she has covered. This is also when you can discuss your bespoke package with Collette in person. Her wedding photography pricing starts from £1000, most wedding clients spend £1550 for a full days coverage with 2 professional photographers and either a wedding album or USB.
You have the option to choose from one or two photographer for your wedding day. The recommendation is always two wedding photographers for guests if 45 or more. A wedding day is very fast paced and it can be hard to capture the details of the venue as well as those sought after candid and relaxed photos, all at the same time as formal groups and show stopping bride and group portraits.
4 weeks before
An engagement photo shoot, other wise known as a pre wedding shoot is included in our pricing. Most couples take advantage of this to capture some lovely couples photos, this could be held either at a special place for you both, a local beauty spot, your wedding venue or somewhere cool and new. The photo shoot takes place at a time to suit you before the wedding and can be of great benefit to your wedding day photos. Having a practice photo shoot will get you used to the camera and allow you to relax more on the big day, resulting in more natural looking photos.
Prior to the wedding, a personal touch is added to the service, where Collette will also arrange a meeting with you both around 4 weeks prior to the big day to run through timings and formal group requests. By ironing all the details out before the day, this means everything is organised and you can be confident that your day is being captured perfectly.
