Well, what can I say about Lucy and my experience with Translucent Photography.
I had chosen to meet 3 photographers from my list of well over 20 based on their photos and their response time to any questions I had. Lucy was always quick to respond, and ticked many of the boxes and so she was one of my top 3. Lucy was the second photographer I met with. She took me to an awesome little coffee shop in Wollongong where we sat a spoke for nearly 3 hours. Tine slipped away from us as we instantly hit it off (one of the check boxes for me was that I got along with the photographer). When I meeting was over I decided to cancel the meeting with my third top 3 photographer because we had found the photographer we wanted to use.
So the deposit was paid and Lucy was booked. We met up 2 more times before the day and kept in contact leading up to the wedding. Even while on her Honeymoon, Lucy had promised to stay within reach for any emergencies. Lucy was happy to come up to our venue to discuss photo opportunities and also to incorporate any photos we wanted or had to have.
She allowed us to pay off the fee over a long period of time and gosh, it was such a big help. She didn't mind if the payments were small or large, as long as it was paid prior to the day. She also told me I was able to pay an extra fee on the day if I decided I wanted her longer.
Lucy also had a fantastic questionnaire that we needed to fill out for her 2 weeks before the wedding. It got us thinking about things we didn't even think of at first, but she had thought of it all in her questionnaire.
On the day, I decided I wanted Lucy one hour earlier. And so a quick phone call and there she was. As soon as she arrived, she began. Capturing photos of me getting ready. She was sure not to be rude though, making sure she spoke to everyone as she was working.
She left the hotel where we were getting ready earlier then us to get photos of the guys and the ceremony location.
All day Lucy was sure to get all the photos we wanted and more. She was good at directions and listened well to us if we asked for certain photos. She was always checking in to see if there were any other photos we wanted in specific locations.
Once the reception started, and we all relaxed, Lucy didn't.
She continued all night to take beautiful photos of us all. Lucy worked so hard for a total of 10 hours. She didn't stop that whole day. And even though our wedding was now over, her work wasn't.
Within 24 hours we had a sneak peak up on the translucent page. And every now and then a few more photos were put up.
About 3 and a half weeks after the wedding, Lucy sends me a message telling me our photos are done, and that I can collect them when I want. Such an amazing turn around time. I have known couples to wait months for their photos.
We loved each and every one of the photos we got off Lucy. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer.
I recommend her to everyone I know who needs photos. And I will be returning to Translucent Photography when ever I need photos.
Thank you so much Lucy! You made our special day complete!!
