About You - Second Glance Photography

“About you”?

No, it’s not a typo.

Most websites have a link on their homepage that says “About Us”, but actually the day is all about you, your friends and your family, so our approach is very much driven by this.

We love taking photos, in fact we are passionate about it. We work with a smile on our faces and create images that hopefully will make you go “wow”.

We could have a page called “ABOUT US” , about our experience and approach, but you can judge for yourselves, by viewing our galleries of recent photo shoots if we are any good or not.

But what these images won’t tell you is the story of how we got to take these images, what the couples or families asked for.

Your Wedding Day or Family Photo Shoot, is all about you.

Wherever the location, whatever the theme, whatever the type of ceremony, you need a photographer who will be flexible and meet your needs and of course enjoys his job.

The trend for Wedding photography is towards the creation of a story of the day through a “photo journalistic” approach. This is where the photographers are very unobtrusive and hopefully you will hardly notice that we are there.

This has the advantage of making sure we capture spontaneous images of you, your family and friends acting naturally and capturing the joy and emotion of the occasion.

But of course, plenty of couples still like the more traditional approach of family, or group photos, or a mixture of both of course. Whatever you want in your wedding or family photo images, it’s your day and your event and the images should reflect you and your personality.

We can help you great memories that will live with you through the rest of your life, just don’t ask us to photograph you during a sky dive!

So how do we work?

We will meet you at least once before the event and get to know you. Where did you meet? What are your hobbies? Who are the personalities in your family and what should we look out for? What style of photography would you like on the day?

Of course, we need to know when and where the ceremony or photo shoot is to take place.If it is a location we haven’t been to before we will visit prior to the event and talk to local management and research other images from the venue, to make sure we get the best possible locations and places to capture your images.

How long do you want us to be with you?

We can be with you from the very beginning of the day through to the first dance in the evening, or anywhere in between of course. The longer you want us with you, the more the cost is affected, but once we have finished on the day we will supply you with two sets of edited images, one Low Res for use on the web and one of Hi Res images that can be printed on large wall canvases for example, or anything between.

We do not copyright the images.

You have employed us to take images to capture that special occasion and we believe that the images we capture are therefore yours. The edited images we supply are yours to do with as you please.

If you want to "stick it in your family album" we are more than happy to help create albums using either traditional print or online services, but the way in which couples and families share their images now are changing. Images are posted on social media or hung as large canvas prints on the wall. You may want to change the pictures on the walls or in frames over time.

With so many options now available we do not believe that you should need to come back to us if you want to change how you view your photos. It’s your day and these are your images.

If you like the sound of our approach we would love to talk to you about your event. You can contact us via our Facebook page, email using the contact us form or on the phone 07808 829900. Look forward to talking to you soon
