Sorry about the blog…

18 09 2010

I know that many people some on the blog looking for inspiration and to see  the latest wedding shoots, but last year we spent a lot of time on R&D and doing other things. This has meant that we were not booking as many weddings and of course the recession also played a part in reducing bookings for all pro photographers around the world.

If you take a look at the wedding elegance website, you can see that we have changed it a few month ago to a different format, and recently it had a redesign, now its more like a blog and website combined. This has made it easier for us to mix up the use of the website with other info on how wedding photographers work.

The sad fact is that most of the time, clients looking for wedding photographers do not consider the work that is done and time that goes into weddings, so part of the wedding photographers job is to show clients what we actually do.

Simply; it costs a photographer 3 weeks wages a £300+ for a wedding album and also the business costs and camera kit costs all add up on top making photography expensive.

The first point of 3 weeks wages really get people,to them its only a day or its only a few prints, but when you work out that there is post production and all that entails, then it starts becoming clear!  it takes 3 working weeks to complete a wedding regardless of if you want ten prints or 100 we still have to shoot more pictures so you have a choice..So doing the maths it all adds up..

So what we have been up to is looking at the wedding albums and previews. This is due to the changes in wedding album design, in many ways the designs of many of our wedding albums are down to the clients choices and the individual weddings, to make use of full retouching and editing of the images and “going to town on them”.  What we have done is gather the images and redesigned some of the albums..

Also at National Photographer, we don’t only shoot weddings, we have boudoir photography. This website has recently had an over-haul which took just over a week to complete.
We also have a stock photography image website which is new to us as we haven’t had a national photographer one before.. so this was again around 2 weeks of work completing this website and ironing out the little hitches.

Other websites have also been updated and other photography has been done.. you could say we have been very busy…

We have posted up the wedding photos from our recent photo shoot at Egypt mill in Nailsworth Gloucestershire, It was the First actual wedding  we have been asked to do the wedding photography for at Egypt mill as normally it has been the place of choice for the wedding receptions, and we have done a few of those.

There are 34 wedding photos posted and one of these we  had to make up.
The groom commented on how he felt like the mafia so we asked him to open hand pose so that we could put a tommy gun in his hand for the post production of their wedding photos.
