Reception Formalities

The Wedding Package finishes at the end of reception formalities, unless an additional extra for example, Stay Until Farewell. Reception formalities include first dance, cake cutting, speeches. Generally, the last formality is the first dance, which often flows into a dance party. In this instance, Sam sticks around to get some dancing photo’s before leaving. If your wedding is more unique, Sam will be all over it. He will ensure that he is around to capture all the main events, & will leave once he knows he has captured enough images to tell a well rounded story of the day. If you have an event happening later in the night, for example, a special farewell, this is where particular package extra’s can come in handy including Stay Until Farewell or Stay An Extra Hour.


Dancing Photo’s

When viewing previous Samuel Jacob weddings, you may notice that Sam uses a camera technique to add some extra fun & energy to his dancing photo’s. Sam often gets a variety of both straight flash images as well as these high energy images. Most couples love these shots, however if you would not like this camera technique to be used, please inform Sam before your wedding date.

Preparations

A very valuable collection of photograph’s where Sam captures the exciting moments leading up to your wedding ceremony. Arrival will be at an agreed time to get shots of both bridal parties separately. This will tell a more complete story of the day and capture those intimate & exciting moments.


next day highlight photo

the following day after your wedding, you will notice your friends & family posting their perspective of your amazing day. As you can imagine, you will be itching to post something yourself! Sam doesn’t want you having to post a dodgy iPhone shot of such an extraordinary day.. So with this extra, Sam will keep working after the wedding to edit a highlight image from the day, & send it directly to you the day after your wedding. 


Slideshow

A slideshow is your wedding day story with music put behind it, in the form of a video link. You can easily share this slideshow video online as well as watch it on your smart tv, smartphone, tablet or desktop. This is a really great way to be able to watch through your photograph’s and share with friends & family as well.


Engagement Shoot
 
You may find that your wedding day is as much about the journey as it is about the day itself. Your engagement shoot will be a relaxed shoot with Samuel Jacob, where you will go to a chosen location at an ideal time of day, and get some beautiful shots. Sam also has under water housing for his camera, so if you wish to get in the water, let him know!


Stay one Extra Hour

If the 6 hour wedding package is not enough time to cover your day, you can always add an extra hour to your package. Keep in mind that the 6 hours begins from the ceremony, if you have Bride & Groom Preps that is additional to your package.


Stay Until Farewell

After the reception formalities Sam will leave after capturing some fun dancing shots.. or whatever is happening. However, if you have a special farewell planned that you would love captured, you can add this onto your package & Sam will stay right through until your departure.


Second Photographer

Sam is in connection with a group of talented photographers who are always excited & willing to jump on board a wedding. This means throughout the day you can have two perspectives of the same moments. I find this to be really valuable as it captures even more depth to the memory of the day.


Drone Photography

Drone photography is amazing. To have an aerial view of your ceremony, reception or photo shoot is unreal. Sam will have one of his drone shooters operating for as little or as long as you like. These drone photograph’s will be incorporated& edited as apart of your final images.


prints

If you would like smaller or larger prints of your wedding day, let Sam know & he can get that organised for you after you have received your images. Prices vary depending on size, and Sam will discuss prices with you depending on what you would like.
