Hopefully you’ve arrived at this page after an enjoyable viewing of my work, here, I’ll talk about how I go about creating the images of your day and what you can expect from me.
I’m at your wedding to tell a story, there is a beginning and there is an end.
My photographic ‘ style ‘ or approach I would suggest is documentary mixed with an informal stylistic eye along with a sprinkling of visual poetry ( yes I love cooking ). I believe passionately that photography is an art form. My focus for your day is for a memorable, relaxed, exciting and calm one. Many couples I’ve worked for are a tad nervous at the idea of a whole day being photographed, this is natural, very quickly though my clients forget I’m around and actually enjoy being the centre of attention for a day.
I work in a sensitive and professional manner,
I know when to be unobtrusive and when to move closer, often I have guests comment on how I seem to be a good friend of the bride and groom, generally we’ve only met once, perfect.
The joy in becoming a wedding photographer for me is due to the unique personalities I meet at every wedding. I walk into each one with freshly open eyes and every couple adds something new to the mix. There are the rules and orchestrated moments, there are the small away from the crowd interactions going on with your family and guests, your story is all around me, this definitely pushes my buttons.
What I won’t do is get in the way, I won’t be setting up posed shots, I won’t ask the groomsmen to ‘ carry ‘ the bride for a group shot, I will never tell you both to smile, you’ll already be doing that, a lot. Cliches don’t sit well with me and I want your finished pictures to be as unique and individual as you both are.
Everyone is different, everyone is the same.
The world of weddings has gone through a huge change over the last decade with many venues now licensed to hold a marriage ceremony. Perhaps your day will be traditional one, you marry in a church or, your desire is to marry under an old Oak tree with a Humanist ceremony. You may want a small intimate affair with the ceremony at a registry office followed by the reception in a gastro pub or restaurant. You may be having a weekday wedding, summer or winter, I’m here to be fluid in whatever day you’ve planned for. My time is bespoke orientated, I’ve worked on many different weddings, the vibe for me is constant, the romance always reels me in.
Please do contact me if you think I’m your man, use the contact form, it would help if you included some brief details, how many guests, the location of your ceremony and reception and of course the date of the big day. I’ll then send you more detailed information. I’d love to hear about your ideas and wishes for your wedding day, feel free to pick my brain, its all in the service I provide.
