Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a Northampton wedding photographer alongside, it would seem, about another million wedding photographers in the area. So … why would you choose me? That is a very good question and one I will try and answer for you.
I am assuming you have found me by one of three ways … You either know me already and are just being kind (or nosey) by reading this blog. You have been recommended by the kind (or nosey) people above. Or, you have, by some miracle, found me via the internet!
If you have found me via the last two ways then welcome to my page and thank you for taking the time to stop by. I really hope you love the images that you see and it would be an absolute privilege to work with you on your wedding day.
I say privilege because to me that is what creating your photographic memories of your special day means to me. It is not solely about the money, it is about being able to share my craft with you lovely people and about you welcoming me into your wedding to do just that. I will warn you now, I’m not averse to laughing and crying with your guests, I get drawn into the emotion of the day just as much as they do and I hope that comes across in my photography.
So now you know a little about what drives me, why would you choose me over the other million wedding photographers in Northampton? Well here is my list of why.
⁃ I am passionate about photography, it isn’t just a job to me, it is an art that runs deep in my veins.
⁃ I have the best kit for every eventuality like dark churches, first dance and creative lighting. I have both back up cameras, SD cards and lenses so we know that unless there are any unforeseen circumstances beyond my control, you will be guaranteed a wedding gallery with no lost images.
⁃ I constantly push myself to be a better photographer, I go on numerous conferences and courses every year to make sure I am the best I can be at any given time.
⁃ I have won over 20 awards with the Guild of Photographers just this year. All these award winning images were taken at weddings and family sessions that I have photographed since January.
⁃ I will be awarded the Photographers Bar this year by taking and submitting continuously high standard photographs with the Guild of Photographers. This is no mean feat and is only awarded to a small percentage of Guild members.
⁃ I provide a Free pre wedding session so we can get to know each other. I like my clients to feel as comfortable as possible on the day and meeting for the first time on the morning of the wedding is not conducive to your comfort.
⁃ I am fully insured and provide a time plan for each couple. This lets us know where we need to be and at what time to alleviate any unwanted stress on the day.
⁃ You will get a mini gallery of approximately 15 images within 48 hours, for you to share on your social media sites.
⁃ You will receive an online, password protected, full gallery as well as your USB and/or album, which you can share with your guests if you so wish. This stops everyone hounding you to see the photos afterwards.
BEWARE! There are many, many cheap budget wedding photographers out there happy to take your money. There are also just as many unhappy wedding clients out there, who complain that their wedding photography was not what they were expecting and now wished they had paid the premium for a professional. But, by then it is too late, a wedding is a one off, one day to get it right! No going back!
REMEMBER, a top wedding photographer does not just turn up on the morning and ad lib the day. If done professionally there will have been an awful amount of preparation, communication and at least one meeting involved beforehand. Neither do they hand the USB back to you within a couple of days, they should take anywhere between 1-3 weeks to creatively edit each image in your gallery.
I hope this helps in your search for your wedding photographer in Northamptonshire. If you would like to ask any questions or meet up to discuss your special day please feel free to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Until next time!
