A LOVE STORY.... written by you and captured by us

More than anything we want you to be absolutely thrilled with the result.....

"....I can truly say no matter how many weddings I attend, no other photographer can create, enhance and produce Helen's quality.  She is truly an amazing artist!  As the years go by our jaws still drop at the album she produced and as we attend more and more weddings and see their results, my husband and I keep poking each other and whisper that our album is still the winner!!" - Another happy client!

Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How long have you been photographing weddings professionally and how many weddings have you photographed?

I  have  been  photographing  weddings  professionally  for  over  15  years  and  have  photographed  over  500  weddings.    Our  other  main  photographer  has  been  photographing  weddings  professionally  for  nearly  10  years  and  has  photographed  over  300  weddings. 

Who will actually be photographing our wedding?

At  Helen  McConnell  Photography  we  have  two  lead  photographers.    Unlike  many  of  our  contemporaries,  we  will  never  subcontract  your  wedding  to  another  photographer  who  may  work  in  another  job  and  only  photograph  weddings  on  the  weekend  for  a  bit  of  pocket  money.    We  recommend  that  you  always  ask  to  meet  the  person  who  will  be  photographing  your  wedding  well  before  the  actual  day.  It  is  important  that  you  ask  to  view  lots  of  examples  of  their  work,  including  completed  wedding  albums,  to  ensure  the  consistency  and  quality  of  their  work.    Be  aware  of  some  so  called  “professional  photographers”  with  a  fantastic  website  and  offer.  They  may  only  undertake  photography  as  a  part-time  job  on  their  weekends.  You  should  never  compromise  on  the  quality  of  your  cherished  moments.   

How do we know what time we need to be ready for photographs on the day?

We  will  work  out  a  timeline  for  you  so  that  everything  runs  to  plan  and  you  don’t  have  to  worry  it.    Once  we  confirm  the  timeline  with  you,  we  can  send  it  to  your  other  suppliers,  e.g.  makeup  artist  and  hairdresser,  florist,  limousine  etc,  to  make  sure  everyone  knows  what  times  they  are  required.

What style of photography can we expect from your company?

There  are  many  different  styles  of  photography  that  we  employ  on  your  wedding  day,  making  your  wedding  album  an  extraordinary  work  of  art  that  you'll  cherish  forever.    Now  this  may  sound  like  a  weird  statement  to  make,  but  there’s  more  going  on  behind  our  lenses  than  just  point  and  click. 

So  what  are  these  different  styles...  

?Reportage  Wedding  Photography-  also  known  as  documentary  or  photo-journalism  photography.  It  is  best  described  as  minimally  invasive  photography  that  documents  the  event  without  disrupting  the  event  as  it  happens.  This  style  results  in  amazing  candid  photos  that  give  a  true  representation  of  your  wedding  day  as  it  happens.    We  use  this  type  of  photography  for  the  ceremony  and  congratulations  so  as  not  to  disrupt  the  proceedings  and  be  as  non-obtrusive  as  possible.    We  also  use  this  style  of  photography  throughout  the  day,  for  instance  when  the  bridal  party  are  mucking  around  or  your  new  husband/wife  whispers  something  in  your  ear.   

?Traditional  Wedding  Photography-  this  style  is  more  structured.  In  fact,  you’ve  no  doubt  seen  this  style  before,  it’s  where  the  photographer  will  line  up  the  wedding  party  and  their  guests  and  family  for  traditional  staged  photos.    We  use  this  type  of  photography  for  the  large  group  shot  of  all  your  guests  and  smaller  family  and  friend  groups  etc.    Usually  these  are  the  type  of  images  that  the  parents  and  grandparents  cherish  the  most.

?Contemporary  Wedding  Photography  -  this  can  be  described  as  glossy,  magazine  style  photography.  It’s  generally  regarded  as  trendier  than  traditional  photography.    We  use  this  type  of  photography  throughout  the  day  for  the  Bride's  preparations,  Groom's  preparations  and  location  shoot.We  also  use  special  lighting  equipment  for  this  style  ofphotography.    These  are  the  fun  and  artistic  shots.    We  also  use  this  technique  for  romantic  shots  of  you  and  your  new  husband.    It's  usually  these  shots  that  our  couples  cherish  the  most  as  they  may  never  have  seen  themselves  so  beautifully  portrayed.

Are any digital enhancements included in our photography package or will we receive our images straight off camera?

We  include  up  to  30  hours  of  digital  enhancements,  which  includes  removal  of  blemishes  and  touch  ups  as  well  as  changing  images  to  black  and  white,  sepia,  colour-toned,  and  black  and  white  background  with  a  colour  foreground.We  also  do  a  little  nip  and  tucking  if  needed.
