THE

EXPERIENCE

If you want to know more about my approach to wedding photography, how I work, and what to expect, then you’re on the right page!

“We’re super awkward in front of the camera”

THAT’S OK!

To be honest, couples often tell me they aren’t too keen and feel a bit daunted by the idea of awkwardly posing for hours of photos.

  • You want a laid-back day without lining up for endless formal photos
  • You want to look and feel relaxed in your photos and have a couple’s photo session that feels like quality time with your new husband/wife rather than a forced photo shoot
  • You want a wedding photographer who cares about you and works calmly and quietly so most of the time you don’t notice them

You got it!

My couples look relaxed because the ARE relaxed. I don’t make it it all about the photos so they can instead enjoy being in the moment and simple have the best day ever!

YOU NEED A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO GETS YOU

Not only do I love weddings and photographing them, I also bring over five year’s worth of experience to your special day. That means I know how to make you relax in front of the camera, how to capture emotion, interaction and all those special details that make your day unique to you, and how to be at your wedding without getting in the way.

You deserve an incredible wedding, and photographs that tell your story, your way.

I’ll never force you to pose in a way that feels uncomfortable to you. I won’t be on the lookout for things that will only look good in my portfolio. Rather I’m on the lookout for moments that really sum up your day.

LORNA REALLY PUT US AT OUR EASE

Lorna did an amazing job photographing our wedding – aside from capturing all the right moments and taking beautiful photos, she was a pleasure to be around, and really put us at our ease on the big day. Lorna was supportive and patient, and was nothing but helpful throughout the whole process.

HOW I WORK WITH YOU

Before your wedding

Taking time to get to know my couples is really important to me, as it’s only when you’re comfortable enough to let your personalities shine through in front of the camera that the magic really happens.

So before you book, I always love to have a chat to find out all about your plans, what’s important to you, and to guide you through the photography option so we can find the perfect fit for you.

Over the weeks and months leading up to your wedding, I’ll be on hand to answer any questions you might have. We can also arrange a pre-wedding (or engagement) shoot to help you feel relaxed and give you some practice before your big day.

I’m a big fan of being organised, so two to three weeks before your wedding we’ll schedule a call to chat through all the details of your wedding day. This will include the timeline for your day and group shots. This way, you can be sure that we’re on the same page and that your wedding photography coverage will be just the way you want it.

On your wedding day

On the day itself, I’m not just there to photograph your wedding, but I’m also there to support you and make sure you have the best possible experience.

I’ll make sure you’re running on time, help pin buttonholes, put your flowers in water, and carry blister plasters in my bag, just in case.

When it comes to the photography, my aim is to blend in with your guests and photograph your wedding as it naturally unfolds. Yes, there will be a handful of group and couple photos which may need a little gentle direction, but for the vast majority of the day you won’t even know I’m there, which I believe is just the way it should be.

And the result?

Lots of beautiful, happy and relaxed photos!

After your wedding

Within a week of your wedding you’ll get a sneak peek of about 5 –10 images from your wedding.

While you enjoy your honeymoon and newly-married life, I’ll crack on with culling and editing your photos. This involves going through the hundreds of images from your day, sorting through the multiples, deleting any with odd expressions and shut eyes, and fine-tuning each and every image so they look as good as the moment felt.

Once your final edited images are ready (usually about 6-8 weeks later), I’ll send a link to your private password protected online gallery. You can download all your photos in both web-size, perfect for sharing online, or high resolution, perfect for printing. You can also share your gallery with family and friends.

And if you wish, together we can create a beautiful album to instantly bring back all those wonderful memories with every turn of the page.

Lorna was brilliant, very calm and friendly, blending into the background so that we hardly noticed she was there.
