Pre Wedding details

Your wedding is almost here, I am really looking forward to capturing some lovely natural moments for you. I have made this simple questionnaire to help clarify timings and locations etc.  As you know my style of photography is reportage/documentary, and your day will be covered with little Interruptions from myself. You should feel free to really enjoy your day and not feel like it's just a big photo shoot. It may be a nice idea to inform your bridal party & immediate family of my style and the fact that I will not be asking anyone to say "cheese". I know very well that peoples perception of a wedding photographer is that he/she is bossy and requires everyone to stop what they are doing and give a forced smile, this is not how I work, so it may be a good idea to inform certain guests. I often ask people to just pretend I'm not there. 

If group photographs are required, I am happy to take several small group shots and will kindly ask an usher or family member to round up the required guests. We should aim to have the group photographs done nice and quickly as guests really do not like to wait around. Please note, I will not raise my voice to shout for guests as this is not counter productive to my style.

Please take a few moments to fill out this form and be as accurate as possible. Feel free to call or email if you have any questions with regards to this form, I'd be delighted to help.

As you know I am a documentary wedding photographer and as such your day will be documented in a very candid way, with little interruptions from me. When called upon to take the formal group shots I like to get these done nice and quickly, with help from ushers to round up guests.
Are you having an owl ring delivery? Or planning to surprise your guests with singing waiters. I'd like to get a heads up on anything different you may have planned.
Are your details entered correctly?
