Telling your story
Different photographers and different styles of photography require a different approach on the wedding day itself. With my style being documentary based I approach the day with a very relaxed approach, the last thing I want is your guests to think “uh-oh, heres the guy with the camera again”. Often clients will complement me by saying they hardly noticed I was there and this is great. It’s not a case of hiding in the bushes with a telephoto lens, it’s about being relaxed and part of the day.
Unobtrusive and relaxed
Your wedding is special, its unique, its a day you want to enjoy, savour and look back on and remember it how it was. You don’t want your photographer getting in the way, taking longer than necessary or dictating how the day should run.
On your wedding day I’ll work as unobtrusively as possible recording all those priceless moments which make up your wedding day and tell your unique story.
Capturing real moments and real emotions
I understand that your wedding day is precious to you; it’s a celebration, a landmark day in your life. You’ll want to spend it enjoying each other, your guests and your family. The last thing you want is a professional photographer stage-managing your day and orchestrating posed shots that just aren’t you.
I genuinely love photographing genuine, spontaneous, real, moments that reflect your individual character and style, just you being you. And using experience, my eye for composition and storytelling and a keen awareness of lighting, mood, atmosphere – you bring the love, the laughter, the emotion and the resulting collection of images will forever transport you back, to one of the most wonderful days of your life.
Spontaneous photography inspired by you
Almost all the photographs I’ll take on your wedding day will be natural and un-posed. I’ll work tirelessly to capture the mood of your day and record those spontaneous moments of pure joy, so that the end result is a timeless and elegant visual memoir of your day that you’ll enjoy revisiting for years to come.
Experience has taught me where I need to be at any given point in your wedding day to maximise my chances of capturing those spellbinding images; your dad’s first glimpse of you in the wedding dress, the nervous smiles right before the ceremony… there are so many incredible emotional moments, I can’t fail to be inspired by you.
I love meeting up before the wedding and getting to know you a little; we can chat about what’s really important to you both and the best way to ensure you get the shots you want in an informal way, which adds to your experience of the day rather than detracts from it. Yes of course I still do some group photographs and posed shots of the couple – if you want them. But for me the real moments are the ones that you’ll treasure more and more as the years go by.
