Hello, I'm Graham, a Surrey Wedding Photographer with an approach that means I photograph your wedding as it happens without causing a fuss or positioning you all day. This means you'll spend a lot less time posing freeing you up to spend much more time with your family and friends, which is what I think weddings are all about. Lots of things will happen on your wedding day, we're all familiar with the big, staged events like the ceremony and the speeches but during those times I'll also be looking out for the quieter, more intimate moments like your Mum giving you a hug just before you walk down the aisle or the sideways glance when the Best Man inevitably gives a little too much away. Just two examples and you can be sure there will be many more. These are YOUR moments and my role is to make them live forever.
Super-model or super-shy, everyone is a bit nervous at the thought of having professional photos taken. Maybe it's the huge camera, team of assistants, lighting crews and being made to stand in awkward poses that would never happen in real life. Well, it doesn't need to be like that and rest assured I don't do any of those things. Instead, we'll go for a walk, just the three of us and a Bridesmaid (you'll see why on your wedding day). We'll chat about the day so far, what you're most looking forward to later and I'll get you to tell me your best - or worst jokes (yes I mean you Laura) and somewhere along the way some wonderful, natural looking portraits will happen. Like magic.
So often the family groups are considered the unloved relative of wedding photography. I think that's sad and as a Parent myself I can't wait to have a photo of my family all together at my Son's wedding. You see, these photos aren't really for you, they're for the people who love you and it will make their day if we set aside 15 minutes (no longer than that) to take photos that will make your Parents and relatives happy.
Three words that make me shudder are "creative wedding photographer". I see my role at your wedding as photographing YOUR creativity not mine. Of course, I will use my all of the skills and techniques I've learnt since first picking up a camera 34 years ago to make sure everything looks as fantastic as you planned while also making sure it has your stamp on it. So, whether your style is pink balloons and Tutu skirts (this actually happened) or something a little more traditional, I'll make sure to capture it all for you, beautifully.
I once had an enquiry from someone who told me they'd been looking through my portfolio for months and now wanted to book me. Sadly the date had already gone to another couple the week before. I wouldn't want to let you down so if you like what you've seen so far and would like to know more please get in touch today to check that your date is still available and if it is we can take it from there. So I can provide the best possible client service I photograph a maximum of 30 weddings each year and have availability for 8 more weddings in 2020 and 14 for 2021. Fill in the form below or text 07934 762 386 and I'll get back to you as soon as humanly possible. I can't wait to hear what you've got planned.
