The Story of Your Special Day in Beautiful Images..
I love to use images to tell stories, through pictures, of your wedding and I promise not to make you say "smile" once!
I won't boss you around but encourage you to adopt natural looking poses in delightful settings that will compliment you, your new partner and your guests.
I'll mostly be in the background taking candid, natural photos of you and your guests but will compliment these with a few staged photos to show you both off at your very best.
From Brides Prep
I'll start the day with you as you're getting ready and capture the chaos and fun that usually denotes this part of your day.
Makes for some very personal amd memorable images.
From the Brides entrance and walking down the aisle to the exchange of rings, first kiss and leaving I'll capture every aspect of this central part of the day.
The First Dance will often offer superb lighting effects that make great pictures and capture the emotions of your first dance.
Previously I'll have captured groups and family pictures, candid shots of guests, speeches and of course great shots of you both.
Many clients when asked what "style" of photographs they'd like reply, "whatever you think best".
In these cases I'll use my experience and skills to match the style to your wedding.
So if you get married in a Church with rich colours and a reception at a 1700's manor house I'll probably lean towards rich coloured, saturated images with plenty of background to show the splendid location where you enjoyed your special day.
Conversely if your day is at a modern bright venue with loads of sunlight I'll lean towards more fashion style shots with blown out, light backgrounds.
As to the actual photography, I always try - and am often complimented on - being unobtrusive and work with the realisation that this is YOUR day and you want to enjoy it with your friends and family and not your photographer!
I'll be in the background getting shots of the little things that make the day but are so easily forgotten, I'll wait for the perfect moment to get shots that have emotion and tell the story of your day and when it comes to group shots I'll be as organised as possible and get the shots you want with as little fuss as possible.
For the shots of you both as newly weds I'll plan several locations, set-up lighting and only take a few minutes of your precious time to get superb images that you can treasure forever.
I always visit potential clients once and often twice before their wedding - you can tell me exactly what you want and be completely comfortable that I am right for you.
Please download a brochure here or request I send you one here.
I look forward to working with you both to create a treasure to last forever.
