Getting in touch
When you send me an inquiry, I get a rush of excitement. Whether it’s a small, intimate wedding, a rustic Mallorca finca or an elegant affair in a hotel, as long as we get on, and you’re looking for my natural, documentary style of wedding photography, then we have ourselves a deal!
If I’m available, I’ll send you my pricing info. Have a look and let me know which options you’d like to go for. If I get another enquiry for the same date I’ll let you know. The first to put down a deposit gets the date, but I always offer the first enquiry first refusal.
Meeting up / video call
If I’m available on your date, I’d love to meet up with you or via Skype to make sure we are on the same wavelength. At our meeting we’ll chat about your wedding, why Mallorca is so great and what you get up to other than work.
If you would like to book me, let me know! I’ll send you my booking form or you can go ahead and fill it in now if we have already discussed dates – www.emmaloufenton.com/booking-form
Once I have your booking form, I will send you a contract to sign. Read this through and you can sign online before clicking agree and sending it back to me.
THEN YOU’RE BOOKED! How exciting!
I ask for a 25% deposit to secure the date, which is due when you fill in the booking form. The details for the deposit will arrive in an email from my accounting software. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks before your wedding.
Albums and other nice things
You don’t have to decide on an album or engagement shoot etc just yet – you can add these on later. Feel free to take a look at the options now though 🙂
Between booking and your big day
During this time, please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or if you want to run any ideas by me. Otherwise, I’ll leave you to your wedding planning without bothering you – I’ll get in contact a couple of weeks before your wedding with an invoice for the final balance and the Wedding Details form for you to fill in, which is really important as it will detail the group shots, addresses and timings. If there are any secrets you’re keeping from your guests or partner as a surprise on the day, please let me know, so I can make sure to capture them! I’ll get in contact the day before your wedding to let you know I’m ready to go and find out if there are any last-minute changes.
And then it’s your big day!
What happens now?
My wedding photography gives you a full or half day coverage (unless you opted for a bespoke package. I stay until our agreed time or until I have enough dancefloor shots. There is usually a tipping point when everyone has had enough of me with my flash, and I prepare to leave you all to it.
When I get home I back up all your images, and crash. I tend to sleep 12 solid hours after a wedding. Over the next few days I’ll pick and edit a few pictures for a sneak peek, so you have something to look forward to. Feel free to ask me for the high-res versions of any of these if you’d like to use them as thank you cards.
I’ll spend the next 6-8 weeks editing the whole wedding and getting it sent to you. You will receive the photos via a special online gallery so you can easily buy prints and share your photos with family and friends.
I know what it’s like after a wedding with all the budget gone, but I highly recommend getting an album, otherwise your photos will be doomed to live on your computer and not shared. It’s the start of your collection of family memories to pass on down the generations. Consider asking your guests for money towards an album as a gift.
I hope this has answered some of the questions about booking me as your wedding photographer. If you would like to book me, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or if I’ve confirmed your date, fill in my booking form.
