Next Steps

We're booked! But what now?!

You're in. Chill. Relax. And plan a little.

So, you're booked in. Now what? Well, take it easy, and keep on planning.

Get a takeaway, put your feet up, and send out a few emails. Planning doesn't have to be stressful!

This little guide will be less about what to plan and how to do it, and a bit more about what happens with your booking with me now.

Your photography journey.

Now that you're booked, you won't hear a lot from me until nearer the big day. Around a month or so before the wedding, I'll be in touch with a form for you guys to fill in. This will give me pretty much all of the info I need, from times of the day through to the group shots list. 

As I said, this form will pretty much give me all I need, but some couples prefer to have a Zoom call to chat about the day and all of their plans. Not a problem at all! Just let me know if that's what you'd prefer and we'll book it in.

I won't send you form till a month before the wedding, as by this time most of you will have had your final planning meetings and timings etc will hopefully be set in stone. If you need anything before this though, just drop me a message, happy to help!

If you've got a pre-wedding shoot (or would like to book one in) then I'll be in touch nearer your chosen date for the shoot. We'll finalise the location and timings a couple of weeks before the shoot, and then most couples have their images within two weeks.

You're married! Congrats!

So, you're married, you did it! Now what happens?

Within a few days of the wedding, I'll have sent you a preview of your wedding pics. This is just a small snippet of the day, a little taster of what's to come. 

The preview will be sent on an online gallery, it'll be password protected so you can decide who can see the images and who can download them.

The rest of your pics will arrive a few weeks later. The turnaround time for your images can really vary depending on the time of year you get married and how busy I am. On average it's about 6-8 weeks. Sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more.

You'll get your full set of images on the same online gallery as your preview, and then you'll also get them on a USB shortly after that.
