Hello again, Bryan here.
Yes I know you’d rather it was Helen, and for the record any sane person would prefer speaking to Helen lol. But since I do most of the site reports and by most I mean all of the site reports, it only makes sense for me to write this blog.
A site report is where the lead photographer for your wedding (me) goes to see your wedding and reception sites and writes out a report making recommendations for how to best utilize the site. And we do them for a couple of reasons:
Now in some cases a site report may not be needed. If we’ve been to your venue in the past few months we’ll share the existing site report with you. And we just give our couples access to every site report we have so that you can use them as a resource if you are still settling on a venue. Below is an example site report so you get an idea of what they are like.
Event Details: Joan and John Smith, August 15th, 2002
Inspection Date: May 8th, 2001
Inspection Personnel: Bryan K for Eleven 11 Photography and Leslie H for The Farm at Red Hook
Description: Seventy-eight year old 13 acre farm and horse ranch. Features small working vineyard, horse pastures and scenic views of Md mountains. West view is compromised by highway and factories.
Internal weddings limited to parties of 12 or less. External weddings held on rear lawn, offers outside and inside possibilities.
Recommendations: Tented wedding is most appropriate for cooler conditions, the average historic temperature on you proposed date is 98. Views of the house front, large tree and red barn are appropriate for formals, also recommended that bridal pictures and dress pictures are staged inside under natural light for nice romantic classical feel.
