Our photography is a gorgeous blend of fashion inspired and lighting techniques and wonderful unguarded, off beat moments.
As a McAvoy Wedding couple you can expect 100% commitment to making your wedding photography spectacular and we do everything in our power to enhance your magical day. We are there for as long as you like. As there are two of us we are often seen smoothing ruffled feathers, handing out champagne, buttoning up dresses when bridesmaids are shaking too much, delivering buttonholes to forgetful grooms and generally getting stuck in and documenting every moment J
We can offer advice if wanted, blend into the background when required, take you away for a breather when you need it and then present beautiful timeless for you to treasure forever.
We love the whole process from meeting a bride and groom for the first time, seeing a shy bride blossom into a confident diva, right through to the day and the viewing when a couple see their for the first time-magic!
We like to meet you at least 3 or 4 times before a wedding, for discussions about package choice, engagement shoot, maybe meeting at your venue, or attending rehearsals and all of these meetings are part of the process of getting to know each other.
We get to know who is shy, who is a poser, what you are like as a couple-are you jokey, lovey dovey? This allows us to capture you as you truly are. It is also a chance for you to see how we work, to get used to being photographed, get to know us and feel comfortable with us so that by your wedding day you are not concerned about photography at all.
I am one of those people who hates having their picture taken-Keith on the other hand is a complete poser! The pre wedding shoot is a great way of dispelling those nerves and seeing the results of a professional photo session in a relaxed, fun environment is always a good way to feel better about having your picture taken. We have had brides who really dread the engagement shoot but end up loving it and even better adore the results. Brides have cried at a viewing, saying they have never seen photos of themselves they like and that they love every one of ours.
That is a fabulous feeling for us and the perfect aim of an engagement shoot. Also we are never going to make you do anything you are uncomfortable with. If you are naturally shy we work with that-(90% of the time you won't even be aware of having your photo taken) and the rest of the time we will be gentle-promiseJ If you are a poser-we will embrace that with gusto!
We love weddings and that shines through in our work. My favourite part of any wedding is the first time a bride and groom see each other at the ceremony-still brings a tear to my eye.
There is no substitute to meeting up and chatting about how we can enhance your big day so please come and see us for a cuppa and a chocolate brownie.
