Below you will find some examples of my work that I feel portrays my style of wedding photography.
If you are looking for someone to take images of your day that will capture the moments, emotions, and story, then I might be the photographer for you. My idea of wedding photography is not your usual looking straight at the camera formal style; I want to capture the day as it was with all the laughter, love and everything in-between. Of course, I can also do the more formal, family/group images when required...Nan doesn't care how creative the photographer is, just as long as she has that photo for her mantelpiece. Who are we to disappoint their Nan?
The day is about having a great time, and if that means silly photos and messing about, then OK!! This makes for some of the best (and most fun) pictures I've ever taken. I draw the line at photo-shopping in dinosaurs, sharks, King Kong or a marshmallow monster…it's just not going to happen.
I like to be unnoticeable and blend into the background as I'm not into being the centre of attention in any way, and I find it helps me capture the moments if people forget I'm there. I'm good at just being myself, which makes people comfortable with me and my camera; this helps get some genuinely natural, informal moments that help bring out the character of the day in all its glory.
I'll be there right at the start when you're getting ready with your friends, and I'll photograph all the excitement and even some of the nerves. I want to show precisely how the day was! Not some staged part, which only tells a fraction about who you both are. Documentary photography really helps tell the story of the day and everyone who came together to celebrate it with you. There will be images that will make you laugh and some that will make you shed a tear! If I've done my job correctly, it will feel like you're reliving the day every time you look at the pictures.
