I could write the usual stuff here about the story of how I first got into photography and the names of my pets etc. but instead I just want to simply say that I LOVE my job and I believe this comes across in my photos!
Capturing Love and Happiness
As you can see from the images on my website, I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My style is very much documentary – capturing the fun, the happiness, the emotions, along with all the little details, whilst allowing your day to flow naturally. I want you to enjoy your day, not feel like it’s one big photoshoot! This way you can have a great time celebrating with friends and family whilst I capture amazing images that really tell the story of your wedding day.
I’m not a purist documentary wedding photographer as I do like to setup a few shots of the bride and groom. I don’t like to get all posey – just placing you in the right light and setting, and keeping it as natural as possible. It can be a nice opportunity for you to spend ten to fifteen minutes away from your guests and take it all in whilst I take some beautiful shots of the two of you together. I also love to create a few of those wow shots with a bit of lighting, usually early in the evening, to give you some incredible photos to proudly display on your wall at home.
I do shoot family group shots and see them as an important part of your day. However, I would always advise you carefully consider how many to have and recommend keeping it to ten or less. They can take longer than you think as an uncle may have disappeared off to the bar or your sister may have gone to get something from her hotel room when you planned to have your photos taken. I will always discuss which shots you would like with you before the day.
Couples who have booked me previously often say that they don’t even notice me being there most of the day as I just blend in with their friends and family enjoying the day. This doesn’t mean I’m some kind of ninja hiding away, I’m always around, shooting moments as they happen and working hard to capture amazing photos for you. When couples do see me, I’m that friendly face and that calming influence sometimes needed on a hectic wedding day.
