‘The Fairy Tale’ Girls Getting Ready bridal party preparation NZ Wedding photography and Video packages
‘Fairy Tale’ Wedding photography and Video packages of the bride and her party preparing for the wedding provides an intimate and often otherwise unseen addition to your ‘Wedding Story’ photography and video mementos.
In the last couple of hours leading up to the brides departure for her wedding our Fairy tale wedding photos and video package option focuses on the bride and her bridal party. There is always great sense of excitement and emotion as bridal preparations take place.
‘Hidden Treasures’ Bride and Groom Wedding Preparation Photography and video
I named this option ‘Hidden Treasures’ after an email from one of our couples telling me just how much they enjoyed this section of their ‘Wedding Story’ photography and video package. They felt we had captured real ‘hidden treasures’ that the other would otherwise have missed out on!
So in addition to bridal preparations, ‘Hidden Treasures’ option also includes pre wedding photography and video of the groom and his men as they prepare, before setting off for the wedding!
‘Shades of Romance’ Pre or post wedding Photography and video – or both! Save the date!
‘Shades of Romance” engagement photography and video in your Wedding photography and Video packages provide a great addition of memorable wedding photography and video, captured in a really relaxed and laid back manner.
You can add ‘Shades of Romance photography and video prior to your wedding or following your wedding, or both! Prior to your wedding the photography and video shoot helps us get to know each other, and also the chance for you to learn to relax and enjoy the camera before your big day!
- We meet at any time during your engagement for a couple of hours of fun photography and video. We spend time relaxing and enjoying pre or post wedding photography and video in a beautiful and discreet location.
- We capture relaxed and informal photography and video of you as a couple together. This is often referred to as engagement photography, or save the date photography.
- Save the date photography provides lovely images for you to use on your wedding website – and also can be used on wedding invitations.
Some couples prefer to save the date until after the wedding and honeymoon is over. Photography and video following your wedding takes many different forms. These days it’s popular to have a post wedding photography and video sessions featuring ‘trash the dress’ I personally don’t like to see a bride trashing her dress and have heard of many scenarios where the bride has had trouble in the sea with the weight of the dress causing problems.
I prefer post wedding photography and video sessions to take a varied format – I will ‘trash the dress’ if you really want to – as long as there are no security or safety issues at stake. You’d never get me trashing my wedding dress so I prefer not to impose the idea on someone else!
‘Your Love Story’ Pre or Post Wedding interview video options
Your ‘Love Story’ video interview provides an extra video add-on from ‘Shades of Romance’ above, including a personal interview, capturing the story of your love, on video, along with your account of the excitement leading up to your wedding day.
Wedding Video Footage from your ‘Love Story’ option is woven, in cinematic style, into an extended wedding highlights mixed with the very best images from your wedding day. This adds a very personal touch to your Wedding Story and provides a fantastic opening section to your wedding film.
Step by step as your wedding photographers and videographers I’m beside you and guiding you throughout your wedding day
As wedding photographers and videographers I strike a balance of relaxed and beautifully posed wedding photography and video for stunning imagery, along with candid spontaneous snapshot mementos to capture the spirit of your wedding day.
