Getting To Know You

For me, getting to know you is as important as the day itself. I can't wait to hear all about your plans and dreams for the biggest day of your life and then to watch it all unfold further down the line. Knowing all the intricate details of your day means that I can always be in the right position at the right time.

Most importantly, getting to know you will allow me to understand your personalities, learn what is unique about each of you and give me an insight into how to best capture you. Building trust before your wedding day is also very important. Trust means that I can capture your intimate and emotional moments.

By including a pre-wedding shoot for all couples allows us to get to know one another, to build trust, so come the big day you will be relaxed with having a photographer around.


My Approach

This is one of the most important days of your life. So much planning, so much care and thought. All the people you love, together for one day, there for just you. It is a day that will be filled with excitement, nerves, emotion, suspense and drama - all to equal measure. The whole day is a living dream which can pass you by so quickly.

My goal is to capture your day in a way that allows you to transport yourselves back in time to relive and breathe your special day, to give you a timeless record of amazing moments that are gone but will never be forgotten. In essence, it makes the whole day tangible. Great photography captures the beauty and personality of that special moment in time and allows you to keep it forever.

My approach will focus on a candid photography style with a mixture of formal, posed and fine art. The beauty of candid photography is that it radiates the energy and emotion captured on the day. It is about understanding and capturing unplanned, unconscious moments of emotion. By blending in, making your guests relaxed and feel at ease with me and my camera I can capture those seen and unseen moments with no contrived posing, false smiles or intervention. This day is for you to spend with the ones you love, to be fully immersed in every second of the day - not with your photographer.


The Big Day

Your wedding day is here and I am here to capture its story. I will arrive a couple of hours before the ceremony to capture the build-up and you getting ready and will leave about an hour after the first dance with a small break whilst everyone eats. Most of the time I will blend into the background but if people need organising then I am more than happy to manage this.

I will have your images ready within 3-4 weeks. In this time I will hand-edit and process your photos to deliver you as high-resolution photographs of your day on a USB stick and via online download link. Photo albums will also be available at an additional charge.
