We love weddings because every couple’s day is unique and special. At Ranson & West Photography, we believe it’s a privilege to be part of your wedding day and want to make sure your experience is all you dreamed it would be.
Getting married is one of the most important days of a couple’s life; special memories are created and we want to make sure your perfect day is captured forever. We love discovering old photographs and the legacy they leave. It takes a second to capture a moment, but a lifetime in which to remember it. That’s why we believe in creating beautiful and long-lasting wedding photographs for you to cherish.
We also understand that planning a wedding can be stressful. Should you choose us to photograph your day, we assure you that the wedding photography will be one less thing to worry about! We will take the time to get to know you, your story, your family and your hopes for your perfect day, so that the day itself will run smoothly.
One of our specialisms is photojournalism and we want to make sure the photographs of your day tell your story. We pride ourselves on creating a boutique experience for our couples’ wedding day photography, whether that be a traditional church wedding, vintage 1950s theme, country chic or something more alternative.
If you’re not used to being photographed with a large lens and professional cameras, it can be quite daunting. The last thing we want is to make you feel uncomfortable and so we organise a pre-wedding shoot at an agreed location to help put you at your ease. It’s also the perfect opportunity for us all to get to know each other on a more personal level and capture some great images of you together. As a keepsake of the pre-photoshoot, we produce one of the shots on a postcard to give to your guests on the wedding day. The back of the card has login details and a password to view the gallery on our website.
Visiting The Venue
We believe it’s really important for us to visit the venue of your wedding in advance of the day. We would love you both to join us. Together we can walk around the grounds and chat about the best locations for your more formal pictures and shots with just you and your partner. This preparation will save you precious time on your wedding day so that you can spend as much of it as possible with your guests.
On The Day
Your wedding day is all about you and your loved ones. We believe it’s our job to capture the atmosphere through photographs and tell the story as the excitement of your big day grows. Because there are two of us, we are in a position to capture more of your special moments; from being with the bride as she gets ready, to the groom laughing and joking with his ushers and best man. We will make sure nothing important is missed and at the same time will capture those special spontaneous moments no one could have predicted! Together with you, we will work out a bespoke schedule for your day. It helps us to know the key aspects of your day and who are the most important people in your lives, so we can make sure they are captured and everything runs like clockwork.
After Your Special Day
We will get a couple of images ready straight away so you can have beautiful professional images to share with friends and family or post on social media. Once the remaining pictures are ready, we will invite you for a viewing, showcased on a large screen, accompanied by a glass of bubbles and cosy sofa. You will receive the final edited high resolution images on a USB presented in a beautiful and personalised presentation box. The wedding album itself is a very personal choice and we take pride in working with you to design a bespoke album especially for you. Our website gallery includes an on-line shop for you and your guests to purchase prints, order framed pictures and to download images.
