- You will receive around 300 images on a beautiful gallery with its own slideshow
- You have full rights to download your images in full resolution
- You can purchase stunning quality prints straight from your gallery or take them to your favourite photo printers
- Bridal prep can be covered at the rate of £100 for an hour before your ceremony
- My arrival time is usually around 15 minutes before your ceremony. This can be discussed if it’s not right for your big day.
Another frequently asked question that’s a bit more difficult to answer with a bullet point… ‘We’re super camera shy’. That’s my super power, I’ll have you more relaxed in front of the camera than you thought you ever could be. You’re going to be wonderful.
