 My Wedding Photography Style

98% keeping it real

 

I genuinely just worked out how many of my photographs are real un-staged moments, but I wanted to give you some idea of how little I will direct your day. It is your day after all.
I will deliver a beautiful set of photographs that tell the story of your wedding day honestly.

Now I go about this by concentrating on people. This is what being a wedding photographer for me is. Being curious, observant and taking an interest in you and your guests.
You felt like a friend, part of the party and not ‘just’ a photographer! – Harriet & Dan
 

I  love being about to show you wonderful fleetingly or never seen before moments. How love looks on your own face when you look at the person you’ve chosen to share your life with, the pride on the faces of your loved ones, the laughter…

 

She has captured how it felt to be with so many people we love on the best day of our lives. Moments of love and laughter are in every picture of calm and chaos, from home to church to party! – Elli & Bully 

 

How this works

If you like what you see then please do get in touch via the contact page to find out if I am available and then we can talk! Ideally I like to meet you in person to discuss further if my style is right for you, your wedding plans and to see if we get along.
This is very important to how I work and how you feel on the day. If location or time is an issue we can always have a chat online or the phone/skype.
Booking me is very simple, all it takes is a 10% deposit, a signed contract and you are in the diary.
Then you can get on with planning the rest of your wedding. I am very lucky to have worked with some fantastic suppliers over the years so if you need any recommendations feel free to ask at anytime or check out my suppliers list below.
A few weeks or so before the wedding I’ll be in touch again so we can discuss the final details, the schedule and for a catch up. We can can do this in person or by e-mail, whichever you prefer.

Every single wedding is different so I’ll give you a rough idea how it works if you book me for all day coverage so you know what to expect.

I’ll turn up bright and breezy for those getting ready photographs, this helps you get used to the camera and also gives me the opportunity to get to know those closest to you.
Then I just go with the flow, documenting the day as it unfolds.

After the ceremony if you wish to have group photos this is the only time you’ll get me telling anyone what to do! You and your guests will want to get on with celebrating so I endeavour to make this as quick, painless and as fun as standing in a line a few times can be as possible.

Then a few minutes alone with you for some portraits if required. I have a very laid back approach to posing, it will feel like a chat and cuddle with the person you just married. Then I’ll leave you completely alone and get back to your wedding party so you can have some privacy. You’ve just got married!

The rest of the day is free for you to continue celebrating the start of your marriage, good conversation, wine, food, dancing… I’ll be there to capture all those moments. Yes if you don’t mind I will even join you on the dance floor to get those party pictures… or evidence as some of my couples have called it! On average I’m there for around 12 hours, sometimes more, sometimes less it depends on what you have planned for your wedding. I’m very flexible, it’s a real life story after all!

Then around 3-6 weeks later your fully edited hi-res pictures are all yours! If you live locally I will deliver them personally, if not then by special delivery, on a beautiful USB in a keepsake box, all yours to do whatever you wish. I’ll also provide you with images optimised for social media and a private gallery so you can easily share them with friends.
If you’d like to purchase an album let’s talk and we can make plans. I store the photographs for 2 years so you have plenty of time to make a decision.
