Let’s make it happen
If you like what you’ve seen, read and heard, then let’s meet and chat. The first time, we catch up at my studio in a funky old woolshed in Kensington. With a cold beer in hand (or whatever drink floats your boat), we’ll chat about your big day, so I understand your vision and know what’s important to you.
I’ll explain the process and how I work, and show you some more images and albums. You can ask me anything, so that when you leave, all your questions are answered, and you’re already feeling like this could be something really special.
A day or three later
Three months out
I’ll email you a form to fill in to give me all the details I need to know. As well as confirming the obvious – dates, times, places – it will also give me a really good understanding of who everyone is, what’s important to you, and other necessary specifics.
This is part of me being super organised. Once you give me this info, I’ll be able to get everything sorted. Which means I can be totally present and ready for the action (as well as the beautiful quiet moments) on the big day.
If I’m not familiar with the location you’ve chosen, we’ll also do a location scout together. We’ll work out where we can take special shots, where I’ll be during the major moments, where the light will create the most fascinating effects…everything to make sure that the day will run smoothly and I capture what’s important to you both.
If you have a vision for the creative shoot, bring it on! I’m up for it. Anywhere that reflects who you are and what you love – I love creating individualized shoots that are original and distinctive. So let’s do it!
About a month before the day
We catch up and go over the running sheet I’ve prepared that details when and where I’m going to be with you, your partner and anyone else, and the types of shots I’ll be taking. This is when we finalise all the details and discuss the album process.
Everything is about to become reality – and I’m pumped!
The BIG day…. IS HERE!
We’re excited, we’re organised, we’re ready. Let’s have some fun!
For the whole time I’m with you and your family and friends, I work to achieve that perfect balance of letting you have fun and express who you are, and standing back to capture the craziness and love of a never-to-be repeated occasion.
We’re all being hit with the emotion of the day, left, right and centre. It’s glorious, it’s wonderful, it’s overwhelming…and I’m there to capture it all for you.
Two to six weeks later
First, I’ll send you a sneak peek of some of your photos 2-3 weeks afterwards – just so you can start getting excited all over again.
Then after another 2 or 3 weeks, I’ll upload your gorgeous images onto an online gallery for you to swoon over and relive your amazing day.
Here’s where you choose your favourite images for your awesome LJM album. Once we know the images you love, I’ll work with my designer to create your album so it tells your story perfectly. (I love shooting, but just quietly, I adoooore this part!)
You’re excited, I’m excited, we’re all excited!
Over crackers, cheese and dips, I’ll show you what we’ve created for you. All the months of planning, all the emotions, all the blissful hours spent poring over the memorable images…it’s all culminated in a stunning and distinctive album that’s captured your most beautiful moments to be enjoyed for generations to come.
Many of my clients cry with joy when they see these images of themselves and their families and friends so beautifully curated and compiled. How could I not love what I do?
“She is super warm and friendly, and on the big day you don’t even notice she’s there. I go to other weddings and I see how much photographers get in the way, hold up the show, detract from the proceedings or set up these awkward/contrived shots, and think “You guys lost out by not having Loz!”
