Across all my photography, both weddings and family shoots, I am very much a photographer who works in a documentary, reportage style, working discreetly in the background to capture images that are natural (both in the pose and the light) – I think these kinds of shots really do build up a real picture of your wedding day or capture the personalities and relationships within your family. Personally, I am not there to 'direct' any of the action that happens and I certainly don't stage any pictures. Each wedding or family shoot are hugely different and unique; my role is to reflect that in the photography. As you'll see in my 'about' section, I'm not hugely comfortable having my own picture taken so I've developed a style of photography that reflects what I would want from a photographer: fun, relaxed and natural. I don't do posed, directed pictures - the pictures I aim for are the ones that show real and raw emotion from you, your family and your guests that naturally unfold during the wedding or family shoot.
It’s always a huge privilege being involved in someone’s wedding – whether as a guest, or as a photographer. It’s a massive responsibility getting the pictures you deserve to reflect your special and unique day and it is a responsibility I take seriously. Before the wedding I will meet up for a cuppa to discuss your requirements and to consider any specific requests you have. In the build up to the wedding it’s customary for me to visit the location to ‘scout’ it and be as prepared as possible. On the day I am very aware that your wedding day is unique and precious and that there will be vast array of ‘special moments’ to capture: big smiles, kisses, dances and lots of laughter. This is the part of the 'job' that I absolutely adore!
