Want a behind the scenes look at the wedding experience so you can get a feel for what it is like to work with me? Read on to see exactly what to expect and how I go above and beyond to ensure that you get the absolute best customer service that you could want for.
The Wedding Experience
This is the most important part of my wedding photography experience and why I love to do what I do. After you have made an enquiry with me and I've checked that your date is available, I'll have you guys over for our first get together (or Skype for destination or out of town couples).
This is where we get to know each other over a hot drink or a glass of bubbles! I want to hear all about you and what you have planned for your big day.
At this time you get the chance to check out my gorgeous albums and printed products as I walk you through all of my options. My collections are all-inclusive, include plenty of coverage time, an engagement photo session, a wedding album, hand edited images and a host of other options.
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION
Did we become friends and agree I would photograph your wedding? If so, that means we move on to scheduling and planning your engagement session.
Besides getting some great images of you both as a couple and some diversity in the artwork for your home, your engagement session is the actually an important step in making your wedding day go smoother. You do not want the first time that you are in front of my camera to be on your wedding day.
The engagement session is where you will get comfortable in front of the camera and working with me and I'll learn all about you guys as a couple. This will help give you a more relaxed and smooth experience on the day of your wedding.
For the reasons above, all of our wedding collections include an engagement session.
THE ENGAGEMENT REVEAL
About 2 weeks after your engagement photo session it will be time for you to see what we created together.
You're invited to come to view all your beautiful images we made on your engagement session. We'll even pop open another bottle of bubbles so that you can have a little tipple while you choose your favourites.
At this point, you will be able to choose all of your favourite images and make any selections for prints, wall art or albums that you would like for your home and walls.
It is important that we work together to plan out your wedding day and create a custom timeline for you. This ensures that there is adequate time allocated at each part of the day to ensure that you get the images that you require.
It's not uncommon that your wedding planner will not think about what photographs that you want when they are making your timeline and therefore it is important for you to let them know how important your photography is to you so that enough time is given to creating images for your album.
I'll help you figure out getting ready, first look (if required), creative and family portrait times. I'll also ensure that time for things like travel between locations and packing and transporting gear. It's all these small things that ensure your wedding day runs on time.
THE WEDDING DAY
The time has come! You've been in front of my camera and we've made a suitable timeline plan for your day. It's time for you to relax and enjoy your day while knowing that I will be there with you your entire day, just like an old friend or family member.
It's also time for me to do my thing! I know the day is going to go by fast, but as your wedding storyteller, I will capture all of those special moments for you. I'll cover all of the family portraits that you require as well as all the other little moments in between. We'll also spend some time creating some artistic portraits in my Signature Style for you and your family to enjoy for generations to come.
YOUR WEDDING REVEAL
It's three weeks after your wedding and you are ready to relive your big day.
I'll have you over again so that you can see your images for the first time.
Bring the family if you like. We'll pop open some bubbles so that you can all relive the memories of your wedding day on our Ultra HD viewing screen.
This is the most exciting time for me as I love watching couples and their family as memories from the wedding day are brought flooding back by my images for the very first time. To me, this is the moment I work so hard at your wedding for. Your wedding day will pass so quickly that I'll often have images of lots of things from your wedding day that you don't even remember along with all the laughs and tears of happiness in between.
I love to experience this with my couples.
As a wedding storyteller, I believe 100% in the power of print and using that special quality that printed images have to create your first family heirloom. It is something that you and your family will cherish for generations to come
I have chosen some album options for you from luxury handcrafted Italian leatherbound albums to more budget-friendly options to ensure that everyone can enjoy the benefits of having a Lee Rushby Photography wedding album.
I custom design your album with all of your favourite images and you can customise these albums as much as you like.
