I will be sure to post one of your best photos to Facebook as soon as I can on the night of your wedding.
But you can actually get to see some of them even sooner than that, when I project a 5-minute presentation of your ceremony for you and all your guests to kick off the evening Reception. There's around 80 photos, with some beautiful backing music, all put together in a professional package.
How it works:
During the Wedding Breakfast, I could just take a break and put my feet up. Most wedding photographers do just that. But I get the card out of the camera, plug it into my laptop, and put together a stunning slideshow of your ceremony.
I bring a projector, screen and sound system, so if the venue doesn't have those available, it's no problem.
The show grabs everyone's attention. Anyone who wasn't at the ceremony then feels much more involved in your day. And it often causes the odd tear to be shed, as well as lots of happy smiles. After the slideshow, we typically move straight on into cutting the cake, then your first dance, and the evening is in full swing.
By the time you come to view your photos a few weeks later, I'll have made a polished version of the presentation which covers your whole day. This is included in the top package as a DVD (or Blu-ray), and can easily be added to the other packages as a great way to share the memories of your day with family and friends.
If you've got a few minutes to spare first, here's an actual same-day slideshow, just as Julian and Trisha saw it on their wedding day:
But why stop at still photos? It's easy to add videography to your package.
