My Associate Photographer and how it works to book an associate for your wedding.
Today I would like to properly introduce Jesse & Crissi, my associate photographers. I will also explain more about how it works if you book an associate to photograph your wedding.
I first met Jesse a few years ago when she contacted me about helping out as an assistant. We hit it off immediately and she started working for me as my main assistant photographer. Over the last few years, Jesse has assisted me on many, many weddings. Crissi I met through a networking group for wedding photographers. Her enthusiasm, passion for photography and approach to life meant we got on very well. I asked Crissi to assist me on a wedding and we got on so well she became someone I called on regularly.
I’m sure when both Jesse and Crissi read this they will get all embarrassed, but I really do enjoy working with them both so much. They are friendly, considerate, fun to hang out with and very easy to chat to. On a wedding day, they manage to get a perfect balance between being professional and approachable. On top of this, they are also very talented photographers. Over the years of working together, Jesse has honed her skills and has a very similar approach to my own. Crissi’s natural approach also aligns really well with my own. This is why it works so well having them as my associate photographers!
Before I go any further I have a confession to make, I’m a bit of a control freak. Well, quite a lot of a control freak actually (but in a good way I hope)! Passing on any part of my business to someone else is something I don’t do lightly. I need to know that I can fully trust the people who are representing me and my business. It’s so important that anyone who works with me and for me will do the very best for the clients who book. I know that in Jesse and Crissi I have someone who I can trust 100% to do a wonderful job. I’m really proud of the work that is produced and the images that are captured.
I have received some wonderful testimonials from couples whose weddings Jesse photographed last year. Here’s some feedback about how they found working with me and Jesse.
Charlotte & Jack – “Fiona and Jesse were amazing in the run-up to our wedding and Jesse was lovely as our photographer on the day. They thought of everything in advance that we would need to think about and spent the time to get to know us and coming to visit the venue with us so they knew exactly what we were looking for on the day. Jesse was brilliant on our wedding day – so relaxed and lovely to be around it felt just like having a friend there while we were getting ready – and she was very handy with wedding tips and helping with getting ready! The photos from our wedding day are so beautiful and capture all the happy, funny, wonderful memories of the day. We couldn’t have been more pleased with them. Charlie and Jack”
Jonathan & Dudley – “From the very start, Fiona and Jesse made us feel relaxed and confident about the photography for our wedding. They immediately understood what we wanted – both in terms of style and in the role of the photographer during the day. Jesse was a joy to work with from our first meeting through to the wedding day itself. Friendly and easygoing, she captured our celebrations and our wedding guests beautifully and naturally. Her photos and the work that Fiona did putting them together are a wonderful look at our day and something we will treasure always. We can’t thank them enough.”
How it works to booking an associate for your wedding.
Jesse and Crissi’s styles are very much akin to my own and they both approach the day with a wonderfully relaxed and friendly style while capturing amazing moments and creative images. The way it works if you book with one of my associates is that you are still fully my client and have me looking after everything, along with Jesse or Crissi, in the run-up to the day. I’ll be on hand to answer any questions, queries or help with recommendations and guidance. You will book through me and all communication with me primarily, including Jesse or Crissi in any emails so they also know the plan for your wedding day.
We can both meet with you in person or via skype/zoom before the wedding day to chat about your plans and to work out timings for the photos on the day. Jesse or Crissi then photographs the wedding and passes the images to me to do all the editing and any other post-wedding work. You receive the same level of care and attention as you would if I were photographing the day myself.
