10 REASONS WHY TO CHOOSE PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER NELLY NAYLOR:
You’ve chosen the cake. You’ve finally found something to wear. The florist is organised. The catering has been sorted. You don’t need a professional photographer because your cousin has volunteered to do it; he took some classes a few years ago. And the venue is booked! That’s everything done!
Wait, you don’t need a professional photographer?
You’ve put a lot of time and effort into organising your big day. Are you sure you don’t want a professional handling the photography? Booking a professional wedding photographer will be a weight off your mind when the big day comes, and here are 10 reasons, to choose me!
I have spent more than 10 years honing my photography skills. I never stop trying new techniques and creative processes and I am always keen to embrace new technologies and equipment. Practice makes perfect!
I’m a people person. You don’t just get my photography skills; you get my charming personality as well! Got boisterous cousins that can be hard to manage? I’ll keep them in check! Feeling a bit nervous about getting the right photographs and keeping everybody happy, that’s what I’m here for! My motto is, to always have a back-up plan – a bit cliché I know but hey, it works! Another important skill in my line of work is thinking on your feet. Nobody wants it to be raining on their wedding day but, it makes for some stunning photos!
You’ve been planning various aspects of your wedding for a long time – they take a lot of organising! So why should you put your trust in a photographer who just turns up on the day without planning anything first? The first stage of wedding photography starts when we meet up at your chosen venue and go through the plan of action for the day. We’ll organise what group shots you want to get and where we’ll be taking them to make sure everyone knows what will be happening. I’ll then do some test shots to check out the lighting and setup so the technical side of things is organised too! Teamwork makes a dream work!
After capturing weddings for a number of years, I’ve created my own distinct style of photography. I enjoy making wedding images feel relaxed and fun, whilst also ensuring they’re colourful and vibrant. The most important part is that they capture and reflect the essence and personality of the couple, after all, everybody is unique in their own way, so your wedding images should be too!
5. Peace of Mind
Hiring me as your professional wedding photographer means you can sit back and enjoy your big day without worrying about a thing. I have full public liability insurance. I also ensure I have backup equipment ready to go, just in case something unforeseen happens. You get two photographers for the price of one, as I always bring a second photographer to ensure no moment is missed and we can be in two places at once!
All of my camera equipment is PAT tested regularly. I also take very good care of it, ensuring it’s checked over and cleaned before every shoot. Thinking on your feet is all well and good but, if you don’t have the equipment, you can’t do very much! Which is why I like to come prepared, if you see me rock up to your wedding with bags and bags of gear don’t worry, I’m not staying for a week! If I know I’ve packed tripods, cameras, back-ups and flash guns for every eventuality, we can make sure you get the shots you really want.
The excitement doesn’t end when the big day is over. You’ve got all your lovely photographs to look forward to! We give you a sneak peek on the day, and then make sure all your images are waiting for you to look through when you get back from your honeymoon. We then hand them over to you, with full copyright and a personalised gift, with our best wishes!
I know I’m back to talking about back-ups again but, it’s so important! We always make sure all your images are backed up on the day, to three separate storage devices. So you know, your photographs aren’t going anywhere!
I’m not just a photographer, I’m a friend. And I’m only a phone call away! Many people stay in touch with us long after the big day as they have built such a strong friendship with us.
And it doesn’t stop there! We make sure we keep a copy of all your images so that if anything happens to yours, you haven’t lost them forever. We can also print your images so you don’t have to go through the hassle! We can arrange canvases, prints, gifts and more, and if you don’t want them straight away, you can always pop back.
