Pre Wedding Meeting and Venue Visits

Before photographing any wedding, pre wedding meetings are used to get an accurate idea of timings and events on your wedding day. The meetings also allow us to create a shot list of expected photographs that we will work from on the day.

If possible, it is a great advantage to visit the wedding venue and reception venue together before the wedding date. Seeing the venue lets us assess how well lit the ceremony will be and also allows us to make suggestions to help improve the running order for the day.

Wedding Ceremony and Reception


Our typical wedding day photography coverage is around 12 - 14 hours. We usually arrive to photograph Bridal and Groom preparations and have completed everything we need by the end of the first dance. We usually offer a fixed price quote for the full day and do not quote by the hour. This removes any unwanted time restrictions from your day. Once we arrive, we only leave once we have everything completed on our shot list and will not charge extra should your ceremony or event run over time.

Photographs, Prints and Albums


After your wedding day is finihsed, we then take around two - three weeks processing the photographs into both colour and black and white variants. Typically you will receive these on a USB drive. Your photographs will also be uploaded to a password protected website, complete with social media friendly sharing capabilities. Should you wish, you can send your family and friends a password to share and download their favourite photographs from the day. 

We also offer competitive printing and wedding album design and production services. However, we believe that once you have the photographs, you can print, frame, reproduce these photographs however you wish - whether we are printing them for you or not. 

For more information about the print services we offer please contact us. 

Wedding Contract

All clients of James Marvin Photography are expected to agree and sign to a comprehensive wedding contract agreement. This will be discussed in your pre wedding meeting to ensure both client and photographer are comfortable with what is required on your wedding day. This is designed to provide full clarity of the terms and conditions for hire for all parties involved.
