Heidi & Tim Pt 2 - Origami, Llamas and Thunderstorms

We can not thank Louise enough for the fantastic job she did of capturing our special day. Her attention to detail and passion for what she does shone through and we could not have been happier with the end result. Tim & Heidi

Tim & Heidi's wedding part 2, after such an amazing intimate first ceremony, did not disappoint at all. Visually there was so much to capture, so much emotion and fun. All of the venue dressing had been done the day before, by Tim, Heidi family, friends and even myself and my husband pitched in.

I LOVED the hand potted plants as favours for guests. Taking something home with them to remember the day that grows with love and care. Just too awesome!

(As a side note Tim & Heidi also decided to start a beautiful house plant company called Wild Home together this summer as well, joining together their passions for plants and interior design.)

ORIGAMI

The personal touches to the beautifully minimal decor extended into the ceiling decorations which saw the marquee adorned with origami animals, which were made by friends and family and sent back with the RSVPS for the invitations.

GETTING READY

The next day we were on for wedding part 2!

With a second dress and a second colour scheme, Tim & Heidi got the chance to express themselves twice.

Starting at Heidi's parents house, surrounded by her sisters and nieces and nephews was a fun, beautiful way to start the day. It was wonderful to watch them all helping each other with hair and makeup was wonderful and their hairdresser was a family friend too. Everything was so calm and close.

THUNDERSTORMS

The weather was so dramatic and looked fantastic on camera. Though we did duck into the marquee to finish their wedding blessing as the lightening struck and then the heavens opened.

SURPRISE LLAMAS

As if there were not some incredible moments to photograph as it was, a surprise petting zoo was on site for Heidi & Tim as a present because of their love of animals. It was fantastic to see all the guests holding and feeding the animals when the storm stopped and the sun came back out.

ALL ABOUT US

As with most of my couples, Heidi & Tim didn't want to be away from their celebrations for a huge amount of time. We took 15 minutes together to take a stroll, to take in the day and capture some moments of them together.

'GROUPS'

I think the day for all standing together, formal style group shots is done. For me it is anyway. I became a shadow and followed Tim & Heidi around while they caught up with their guests and captured them where they were. It meant we have versatile group shots in lots of places around their venue.

LETS REMEMBER & CELEBRATE

We had some wonderful speeches and words of remembrance and love from Heidi & Tim's special people. Along with my first thank you gift given in the speeches.

Everyone made way for the first dance and then joined in with the celebrations and party.

Even I was told to put my camera down...

Well, what else can I say! I know I talk a lot but no words really describe the feelings I get when I get to be such a close part of so many peoples special days.

Heidi & Tim! Thank you for having me!

The question I wish you would ask me....

Mrs Jutson Wedding Photography Specialist

Are you asking your suppliers this?

Ok, so lets get serious for a second. You are hiring a service for one of the biggest days of your life, you have saved for a number of years, family are investing in your day with you, you are working more hours to get a bigger budget for your dream outfit and venue!

That is a big deal....

If you were buying a brand new car for £12,000+ (average wedding costs from my own head and experience...ooo shall I get a statistic) you would insure it... am I right? So that if something happened you would be covered to fix it or replace it?

So.... have you taken out wedding insurance?

Ok I will be honest with you... I did not even know this existed when I got married so I didn't do it but if I was to go back I would.

Then... and this is THE question...are you asking your suppliers if they are insured and if you aren't DO IT NOW! 

I am not going to write out my entire policy because that is DULL... but I am going to share this!

If I leave my camera bag laying around and you trip over it and break your leg... we are covered.

If I damage your dress with my tripod or lights...we are covered

If I scratch your car when I climb on it to take the group shot..(ok I wouldn't but some might) I am covered.

All this along with if anything happens to my equipment on your big day!

Do you think that is important? Because I do and that is why I am a professional and I pay for that service. So you feel safe!

NOW! Have you also asked your other suppliers the same?

DOOM AND GLOOM?

I do not like doom and gloom but still being serious here your big day means a lot to you and it means a lot to me. I want you to feel safe and secure in your suppliers. All the professionals are great at what they do and will not doubt be insured. Accidents do happen even to the most experienced suppliers.

SO GET ASKING! We will be pleased that you did!

Want to know more about what to ask?

Ask about a suppliers insurances, what is covered and do they have public liability insurances (for makeup artists, hair stylists, photographers, bands and many more)

What's next Louise?

SIMPLICITY

Yes I am known for many words.

However my wedding photography package and journey with you is simple and personal.

So how does it work and what will our journey be?

Mrs Jutson Wedding Photography Specialist

SIMPLICITY

I believe in a stress free, simple process.

- you like me/like my style

- we connect over Skype or cake

- feel great and chose me as your photographer - pay booking deposit that is non-refundable and comes off the overall total. (You receive your wedding agreement)

- Book your 1 hour confidence shoot (for destinations this can be the day/evening before your wedding)

- Final payment made 12 weeks before your big day

- We have an awesome day capturing memories together

- 1 week later you get a preview of your photographs in your online gallery

- 2/3 weeks later you receive your full online gallery.

- You go home, look at them again and again, download them to your computer. You share them with your family and friends.

- You choose your favourites and if you would like an album added to your package either before or after your wedding then thats simple too.

PRETTY SIMPLE EH?

Mrs Jutson Wedding Photography Specialist

PERSONAL

The most important ethos of my business over everything is that I am personal photographer. 

Your story, your memories, your love and connections matter to me.

I may seem nosey, I want to know what is going on in your life, what you love, what you hate, your pets names.

We will connect throughout your wedding journey.

I am quite a good wedding agony aunt now if you need someone neutral to bounce and idea off.

Mrs Jutson Wedding Photography Specialist

RELAXED

All this that I do is to help you feel relaxed on your day. No one wants to feel uncomfortable whilst they are getting dressed, or when I get close on personal with my camera.

I do very few 'formal' posed shots. No one wants to stand around for 40 minutes posing and smiling. We wander together and capture real moments and celebration with your loved ones and friends.

So thats what to expect from working with me and your wedding photography journey. All that is left to do is get connected.

If you have already booked with me, I am so excited to work with you. The next connection we will have is your confidence shoot, click below and see why I LOVE them so much.

Working with Louise! That's me...

What can you expect when working with me?

Now you have seen my work (click HERE if you haven't) and my prices and you think yeah I am liking what I see...but the most important thing we need to figure out is that we can work well together and that we are on the same page. I have my eccentricities and my photographic style, these need to fit with what you are looking for in your wedding photos.

So what can you expect?

1 - Firstly you will ALWAYS get me! I do have a great second shooter who I bring to weddings with me, but I am the eccentric face of my business and I always will be. When you call or email... it will ALWAYS be me. Your camera confidence shoots and coffee meetings (or hot chocolate in my case) will ALWAYS be with me.

2 - I like to keep things personal and simple, so I will not bombard you with lots of different packages and options for your day. I have one price to cover your mini shoot, consultations (coffee & cake), editing, travel, the second photographer (I bring them when I feel it suits your day and your image needs) and from getting ready to your first dance. You then can tailor any extras you would like to add to suit your budget. 

3 - Creativity is in my blood and I will look for ways in which to capture your day and your personality. This may mean that I take photos that are more creative than formal and I will discuss with you interesting poses, locations and things to photograph. NO standing in a line for 40 minutes for me. With group shots I like to capture genuine emotion so I will follow you around when you greet your guests and capture cuddles and hugs with them.

4 - FUN - Oh my goodness, I have been a bridesmaid 9 times in my 32 years and the one thing missing from 'traditional' wedding photography for me was FUN! I want to photograph YOU and your personality, I want to capture your laugh, your love and your tears. I want to photograph your doing what YOU as a couple like to do. Lets go to the beach, go in a land rover, run across a field with your dogs. Lets do WHATEVER you love to do! Let's have fun!

5 - A lot of chats, I LOVE to talk! If you are a talker we will get on just fine! I ask many questions, I want to know where you have been on holiday, what your cousin bought you when you were 5 and where you got engaged. All this helps me tell YOUR story through your mini shoot and on your wedding day.

6 - Professional service to put your mind at ease. I have full insurance that covers me and you. I have never had to use it and I do not imagine I ever will.... I photographed two weddings at 38 weeks pregnant and no dramas (though I did pretend I was going into labour to kick the guests into action). I know I should put this point at the top but it isn't most fun question. The bizarre thing is no one ever asks me this question when I get an enquiry! So a tip - any supplier you chose, make sure they are insured!

7 - Style and technique and tools  - My camera is the extension of my arm and I know him inside and out and we work very closely together to create your images.

I AM CONTROL FREAK!

I use my camera on a manual setting, which allows ME to take the picture and not the camera. I don't like to take chances when it comes to capturing those perfect moments. I LOVE real! I love lighting, colours, hues and the palate of your wedding is as important to me as it was when you envisioned it. My style is focused on realism, capturing true connections and colours. 

8 - Help at all points; my biggest passion and the feature I am going to end this blog post on is I will be here to help you all the way through your journey. Your booking of me, your choosing of other suppliers (should you need recommendations I know someone who does everything). Your wedding day, corset lacing and pouring of wine. To the end where you chose your final images and we finish our wedding journey together.

This is me and what I will bring with me to every client I work with...

'And she's super easy to get on with, not to mention on hand with giving the extra push when needed at the venue on the day'

With Love! x
