I often see photographers say you won’t see them all day and they will be hiding in the corner, snapping photos from afar.
This isn’t me. I will be in amongst the action, capturing moments so when you look back on the photos it feels as if you’re there again, re-living your day.
But fear not, this doesn’t mean I’m annoying and in the way! In fact I hear time and time again people soon forget I’m around and they say I was good fun and just like I was a friend of theirs!
Simply put I blend in as if I’m a guest meaning it doesn’t feel like you have a photographer. You will see me smiling away a lot and enjoying myself. I am here, there and everywhere!
My style is 95% documentary wedding photographer (also known as reportage or photojournalist) and 5% portraits.
In effect this means my approach is to tell the story of your day in a down- to-earth, natural style, capturing all of those special moments, and details, that make your wedding personal to you and enable you to relive your day.
I do love beautiful portraits too so a small chunk of your day will be consciously going for photos (we’re talking 20/25 min max, hopefully at sunset). I still make this fun though and as natural as possible (no awkward or cheesy poses!)
I aim to produce photographs that are full of life and emotion - photos that bring back the feelings, not just a record of what happened.
I really enjoy photographing weddings – I give 110% to every single one.
I’ve photographed many weddings over the years, and that experience means I can provide a calm and confident presence on the day.
I think there are two key ingredients to choosing who is the right wedding photographer for you.
Number 1 - the style of the photos! Choose someone whose photos you look and you think “I want wedding photos like that!”
Number 2 - how well you get on with them. Your photographer is with you all day and it’s worth having someone who you feel relaxed around, who you can imagine interacting with your family and friends, and most of all someone you like. It's so important! This is why I’m always happy to meet you virtually (via video call) or in person.
My style is not traditional. I am openly not a fan of cliché wedding photography (I would prefer to put pins in my eyes than go around taking photos of each table at the reception, making you pose awkwardly with a knife and a cake or to get all your guests to stand in a heart shape).
