After Your Wedding

What next?

Firstly congratulations on getting married, I hope you had a great day.  This guide is just to explain to people what happens after the wedding.

My wedding has been Photographed but I haven’t seen the pictures yet

It takes roughly 3 to 4 weeks for your wedding photographs to be ready in normal circumstances (Although this can be pushed back a little in extraordinary situations), so I always ask couples to give me a call 3 weeks after the wedding and I can give you up update on the photographs. They may already be ready, or they may be coming online shortly.  Either way I can give you an update.
If the photographs are already finished you’ll be directed to a web gallery (The web galleries can be found HERE.)  Once you’ve found your gallery, I ask that you login using the password provided and check over the work to ensure its been  completed to a satisfactory standard.  This gives you the chance to check everything so if anything needs amending or removing I can do it for you. Once you’ve checked the work has been completed to a satisfactory standard then just drop me a text / email / message and I’ll open the gallery up to family and friends and remove the watermarks for you. Galleries will remain online for 6 months and can be accessed by family and friends if you give them your password.
Unless specified on your booking form, sneak peaks may be posted to social media.  Sneak peaks are something I like to do, however they are dependent on my work flow and also your venue.  For example certain venues such as Yorkshire Sculpture park prohibit this. National trust also places terms on usage which may not make it possible in certain situations and many other venues also issue terms to photographers).  If you have an issue with sneak speaks appearing on social media, just put on it on your booking form so I know.

How do I get my images ?

I give everyone a choice of either digital download or USB for the wedding photographs. It’s up to you. Some people prefer the ease of digital downloading directly through the gallery, some people prefer something physical.
If you’ve chosen the digital download option then within 24 hours of you checking the work the gallery will switch to download enabled. This allows you, or anyone with the password to login and download either a single image, or all of the images in the gallery.  The gallery has unlimited downloads and I strongly suggest you download the entire gallery to multiple locations in case anything ever happens.
If you’ve chosen the USB, then I will prepare the USB and post it out to you if your a digital package client. If your an album package client unfortunately the USB is built into the Storybook box so it will come with the Storybook. The lab who supplies the USB’s and Albums have stated they will not provide the USB in advance unfortunately.

I’ve ordered a Storybook. What do I do now ?

If you’ve purchased a Storybook with your package then what I need you to do is select the images that you would like to go into the storybook from the gallery.  You can select them by either adding them as a favorite in the gallery (And then once you’ve finished click send to Photographer), or you can write down the image codes that you would like and email them to me.  I’ll always reply to album choices just to let you know I’ve got them and that they are in my queue.
Please remember with Storybooks you have a year from the date of your wedding to complete your wedding album.
