Why Choose Captivating Photography
There are many photographers out there, here is why you should choose us...
Your wedding day is very special and it is therefore essential to be comfortable and relaxed with your photographer as this will be reflected in your wedding images.
A wedding day is full of hidden moments of love. These special moments often go unnoticed, and yet they say so much about the day. Each moment may be gone in the blink of an eye, but Captivating will capture it for you to enjoy forever.
We believe to tell the story as it unfolds. We begin by offering an optional pre-wedding engagement shoot. The wedding day itself usually starts off with the groom relaxing before the big event, followed by a whirlwind of excitement as the bride prepares for the day ahead. Continuing through to the arrivals at church, the service, congratulations afterwards, group and family shots.
As all of this can be very overwhelming for the couple. We therefore take you away for a while to do an intimate, more private shoot of the two of you alone together for the first time as husband and wife – a moment to take it all in. These first shots are often the most touching images from the whole day, marking the start of your journey through life together.
We finish off the day at the reception after the first dance and formalities (speeches, garter etc.) are finished. Remember the length of time that you see your photographer on the day itself, is just the tip of the iceberg; they will also be spending many days sorting photos, ensuring colours are accurate, designing and assembling albums. Depending on your package, the artistically enhanced images are then collaborated for you to enjoy in a professionally-designed DVD slideshow and storybook / wedding album.
Captivating utilises only state of the art digital cameras and the best lenses available. The capablity of these digital tools allows us to be more creative as we capture those unique and memorable moments that will last a lifetime.
When you retain Captivating Photography as your wedding photographer, we reserve the entire day for you alone. You are not limited by a set number of hours. We are there to capture every extraordinary and memorable moment of your wedding day regardless of time...or distance. We do not charge a travel fee within a 70 miles radius from Fort William.
As important as budget is, realise that it’s not all about money. Flowers wilt, food and wine are consumed and a great party becomes a faded memory over time. However, aside from your rings (and your spouse of course!), the photographs are the only tangible reminder you will keep from the whole day. It’s worth investing in a good photographer who understands how you want to record your special day. Do not gamble with these memories by only considering price when you decide on your photographer.
