I am based in Paris predominately but travel home to Ireland frequently for weddings. I have also shot weddings as far away as Mexico and I am available for and enjoy shooting destination weddings anywhere in the world.
I shoot mainly documentary or photojournalistic style but if I see a need for guidance or styling I will do so. Of course I recommend that you try to incorporate some time into the day for a couples shoot so I can capture shots of you both. You should allow 30-45 minutes out of the day for those shots if your timeline allows. Posing is kept simple and natural and I prefer to see moments between you both as they happen but I do direct and pose as necessary or to improve what is already there and give guidelines and suggestions.
If you require family formals depending on the amount expect to set aside approximately 20 minutes for those, it is best to have a list written our in advance to avoid missing any and to keep it running as quickly and smoothly as possible so you and your guests can get back to enjoying the day as quickly as possible.
If needed I can recommend excellent wedding planners and hair and make up artists so don’t hesitate to ask!
For a full days wedding, you can expect approx 450-500 edited high resolution files which will be transferred via FTP site and an online gallery for one year. This generally takes 3-4 weeks after the wedding day.
Ideally if you are not working with a planner it can help if you could send me a timeline of the day in advance of the wedding, even a simple approximate timeline, this helps me plan and make sure your day is covered thoroughly and all required shoots are incorporated with ease and available light is best utilised.
Some of the shoot faq's above may also contain useful information for you too!
