Your wedding will be one of the most memorable days of your life. It is a time to celebrate love, joy, friendship, and family, and I work hard to make sure your photographs express the atmosphere and unique charm of this beautiful day.
I allow things to unfold naturally so that I can capture spontaneous and candid moments. My aim to stay unobtrusive and blend in with your guests, letting you relax and be completely comfortable during your celebration. The photographs will be blend of relaxed creative portraits and natural documentary photography.
AVA Images offer (me) a dedicated full time wedding photographer with sensitivity, patience, photography expertise and a sense of fun. Your final collection of images will be beautiful, relaxed, emotive and stylish.
It begins with a pre-wedding meeting (either at your home or in our studio based in Kingsteignton, Newton Abbot) and then leads onto a venue visit. The pre-wedding meeting enables us to get to know each other and for me to learn about your wedding plans (which I love!). From there I can, if necessary, create a personal package that suits you and your budget. The venue visit means that we can explore the building and grounds together to make sure that we use the buildings, landscapes, gardens and features that you love. Also this is the time to discuss all the fine details of your day and formal group shots will be planned.
All weddings are unique but my approach is consistent. I arrive in plenty of time and (as mentioned above) have always previously visited your venue(s). We will, by then, have a plan and the plan is very important! It ensures that you have nothing to worry about, no moment will be missed and proceedings will run to time. I am unobtrusive when photographing the ceremony and group shots are composed with little commotion. My aim to spend the majority of the day blending in with your guests which enables me to capture beautiful informal reportage style images. After your drinks reception and usually just before you sit down to eat we wizz off (to our pre decided locations) to take some timeless, romantic (not cheesy) bride and groom shots of you both. Wonderful!
Your images will be ready to view online two weeks after your wedding day and you will receive a high resolution CD of ALL of your wedding images in both colour and black & white.
Your bespoke photobook, containing all the colour images, and your canvas print will be ready approximately 12 weeks after your wedding
