‘Your wedding will be an incredible event. A day quite unlike any other, where lasting memories will be created – memories that remain with you for the rest of your life. I’d love to be the one who photographs it for you’
Choosing your wedding photographer is probably one of the most important decisions you’ll make.
Without exception, I am always grateful that couples invite me to share their wedding and to capture the stories that unfold as this special day and evening progress. I’ve been photographing weddings since 2010 and everyone is different, whether it’s at a splendid castle, country house or in a farmers field with tents, hay bales and tractors. Each wedding brings its’ own unique set of challenges and it is these that keep me excited and full of fresh ideas with every wedding I shoot.
On the day itself, I will work quickly and quietly to capture the events as they unfold. I realise that at every wedding the bride and groom will want a few formal shots of their bridal party, close family & friends. It is good to try and keep this to around 6 or 7 groups, or about 20 minutes. Similarly, I will always make time to capture a group shot of the couple with their entire party of guests.
Perhaps the most important photograph of the day is the enduring image of the bride and groom together. This is the shot that will grace the cover of your album and probably your parents’ wall! This is the image that will be on display all day, everyday, so it’s important to give it the time it deserves. To achieve this I ask for half an hour away from your guests to concentrate on just the two of you alone. Usually involving a short walk along the beach, or a stroll through the gardens of the venue, it is always an enjoyable break from the “chaos” of the day. It’s also a chance to get close, to gather your thoughts – and will probably be the only time you get to yourselves all day!
Please take some time to look through my portfolio and then when you’re ready let’s book an appointment to meet up and talk about your wedding day. If you want to chat over the phone, Skype or FaceTime first then that’s fine, although I do insist on eventually meeting in person before you book me as this provides us the opportunity to discuss all your requirements in detail and to ensure that we all get on together. You also get the chance to have a good look at my superb range of albums and products.
