WHAT TO EXPECT
What to expect.
I’ll tell the story of your day without directing anything, create photos of the two of you together without posing you too much and when it comes to the family photos I’ll work with you to make sure they’re as quick and easy as possible.
01. the unposed pose.
THE KEY TO NATURAL LOOKING PORTRAITS
How do you create a great pose without posing people?
I struggled with this question for years until I came across the answer… you don’t pose people, you create a stage and let things play out naturally.
My expertise is in finding the best light and a setting that will spark memories for you in years to come and your expertise is in being the best possible version of you.
When the photographer takes a hands-off approach and allows couples to be themselves the resulting photos not only feel more like you but also look more like you. Learning to let go is essential to getting natural looking portraits.
02. telling the story
UNSCRIPTED DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY
One thing I know for certain is that life doesn’t give you a second chance. “This is not a rehearsal” could have been written just for weddings.
That’s why I believe getting the right wedding photographer matters, because this one day matters and so do all those people you invited. They are a part of your story, and this one day is a microcosm of your lives until this point.
But it’s equally important to realise that weddings aren’t about photography. They’re about meeting the person you can’t live without. They’re about the friendships you formed along the way. They are the start of a new family story. They’re about who you are on this one day and who you hope to become in the future. So it is my job to tell that story, and tell it well.
03. family & friends
REMEMBERING WHERE YOU CAME FROM
There’s no doubt about it, a wedding is not just the start of a new life but also the end of the one you had the day before.
Things change after you get married, things accelerate, big life changing events happen.
That’s why it’s so important to use this opportunity to celebrate and remember where you came from, the family you grew up in, the friends you found along the way.
Let’s create more than just photographs, because nothing will ever be quite the same again.
I still have no idea what these people were doing : )
HOW WILL YOU MAKE US LOOK PHOTOGENIC?
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH DETAILS?
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
HOW DO WE BOOK?
The first thing is to check my availability. I only photograph one wedding per weekend to make sure I can give you my fullest attention so dates can get booked up very early, as much as three years in advance.
If I’m still available I’ll send you my pricing and if all suits you can secure your wedding date with a £500 retainer… and then we can start talking about the fun stuff.
Check your date
The first thing we need to do is check I’m still available for your wedding date and also let me know if you have any questions.
I’m happy to meet you here in Godalming on weekday evenings or we can Skype/FaceTime if that works better for you.
If you would like to secure your date I just need a signed contract and £500 retainer.
I look forward to hearing from you!
