WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

the

EXPERIENCE

My number one goal is to make sure that working with me is the most effortless aspect of your wedding planning and that on the big day itself the photography doesn’t ever get in the way of you having a great time.

HOW I WORK

Although I’m primarily a documentary wedding photographer – meaning I photograph things as they happen rather than staging photo-opportunities – there are two parts of the day where this isn’t appropriate – your portraits and the family & friends photo session. Read on below to see how I approach each in turn.

GETTING READY

THE CEREMONY

RECEPTION AND PARTY

01.

YOU + ME

Your photographer is one of the most important people to get right and you should spend some time getting to know their personality and how they work. Each one has a different way of doing things and will emphasis on different aspects of your day depending upon what THEY consider to be important.

I’m a “documentary” wedding photographer which means what you can expect from me is different from a “traditional” or “editorial” photographer.

I always suggest we Skype/Facetime before you book so you can get a feel for how I’ll be on the day and I can see if you’ll be a good fit for my approach.

PORTRAITS

My number one aim with your portraits is to create a collection of photos that don’t just look like you they should also “feel” like you.

Where couple portraits go wrong is when serious people try to be silly or where people who prefer not to take life too seriously suddenly decide that the photos are so important they have to act all grown-up.

I’ll work with you – and within your comfort zone – to create photos that truly capture your personalities… and you’ll have a lot of fun as well… unless you feel like you want to be very serious : )

DOCUMENATRY

Wedding Photojournalism is my core offering and in my view the only valid way to capture a wedding. 95% of your entire coverage will be upstaged, unposed and unforgettable. Real moments captured as they happen so you have real memories you’ll cherish forever.

06.

AFTERSHOW PARTY

That’s it, you did it. You put on your posh togs. You said “I do”. You laughed – or cringed – at the speeches, you made a hole in a cake and now it’s time to get your party heels on, let your hair down and party like it’s 1999.

“Aftershow Party” is my most popular upgrade and as long as your entire wedding isn’t populated by Zombies you’re guaranteed to love the results – just don’t let your boss see them. 

05.

FAMILY + FRIENDS

It’s fashionable these days to not have any “formal” photos with Parent’s and family but I think this is a mistake. 

20 minutes out of your drinks reception to get photos with your families is well worth the effort and we never know when these people will no longer be around.

We can ten take some time to get photos with the Bridesmaids and Best Man/Ushers. These can be as serious or silly as you like, it’s your time to shine, grasp it.
