The fun at Cliff at Lyons
Remember the Feeling
The joyful, fun and emotional experiences you will have on your wedding day mean everything. And when booking me as your wedding photographer, I want you to know your experiences are at the center of my attention as your photographer. It’s so important to me that you feel completely at ease throughout the entire photography process. You are placing your trust in me. I’ll treat your wedding as if I am photographing a family member’s wedding. You deserve no less.
Other than your wife / husband your wedding photographer is the one person who will be by your side more than any other person on your wedding day! So, hiring a photographer who has not only the style of photography you love, but also a relaxed manner is so important. That’s exactly what you get from me. Having photographed lots of weddings I can bring you invaluable experience on how everything flows on your day – and do so unobtrusively! When it comes to any posed photos, I will gently guide you so that the process will be relaxed and fun.
The results you receive at the end of the day will matter the most. The photographs will tell your wedding story, and when you receive your online gallery, you will feel like you are reliving your wedding day. The photos will be unique to your day – beautiful details, fun, emotions and the pure joy will be captured for you to enjoy over and over again. And since photographs are forever, every time you look at your photographs on the walls in your house, in your albums, and everywhere else that they might be, you will remember those most special moments in your life time and time again.
Every wedding is unique because every couple is unique! The first step is a quick chat about your day and all that you are planning. We’ll talk a little about wedding photography and your thoughts about it. You may be starting out on your wedding planning journey, or you have already done your research and are here because you know you want reportage photography. In any case, I’d be delighted to chat with you and share with you some of my experiences photographing weddings and we can see how well what I offer meshes with your needs! I’m happy to meet you over a coffee and show some sample albums on the phone, via email or through zoom for my overseas customers.
A quick chat is a great way for us to get to know each other a little, and to start building some rapport, which will carry forward to the big day, helping you feel totally relaxed about your photography experience.
I recommend booking your date in as soon as you are able, after you are engaged. Some couples even book me for their date before they choose their venue. I don’t mean this to be any pressure, but popular dates can go early on so booking early gives you more choice.
A €300 deposit will lock in the date for you. I will send you a booking confirmation with all the details for your day.
The pre-wedding consultation is a face to face meeting over a coffee usually for about an hour. If you are a destination wedding from overseas, we can do this via Zoom. It’s best to schedule this meeting roughly one month before your wedding day as then most details will likely be finalised. You can look at photo albums. We’ll discuss timings, must-have shots and any special requests you have e.g. your sister is singing during ceremony / a shot with all the girls / sentimental details etc. There is no need to prepare as I will guide you through the process and take notes. It’s a great way for us to get to know each other and build rapport which translates into a very relaxed experience on the day. My aim is that you will leave this meeting and be fully at ease with your photography plan, and any possible concerns firmly put aside!
With all the prep work completed, you can relax and enjoy your day with your friends and family. At this point, all your wedding photography questions have been taken care of, and I will be there right by your side for the entire time that you have me booked.
If anything changes on the day (e.g. timings, location, weather) you can rest assured you are in the hands of a professional who is more than happy to go with the flow! And after all reportage photography is all about capturing the magic, as it happens, without directing you or relying on directed photos.
After your wedding day, you will no doubt be keen to see your images! Most of my time spent on your wedding is on processing your images. Every image is individually processed to the standard you can see in my portfolio. This process takes a few days per wedding. I will also create a highlights slideshow for you. This is sure to bring back all the memories and emotion of the day. These images will be the ones I feel are the strongest from the day and are my recommendations for you choose from for your album. Your images will be processed within 8 weeks. I will call you and explain everything you need to know, such as how to choose photos for your album.
