WHAT'S YOUR STYLE OF WORKING ON THE DAY?
Weddings are fuid and my style is natural and to go with the flow of your wedding. Of course I offer direction where required to help things run smoothly and to make sure we make the most of beautiful light and backdrops.
When it comes to how your eventual pictures will look, I know there are many styles of careful, skilled editing that range from ethereal, to punchy, to moody. My style of editing matches the available light, and the reasons you chose the time of year and surroundings as closely as possible. If you marry by the seaside on a bright, clear day, your photographs will be light, they will not be moody. Should you choose to marry in the countryside, your photographs will include nature, and textures. A Christmassy or wintry wedding will look cosy, warm and twinkly inside and most likely dramatic or moody outside. Autumnal wedding photographs will be full of the richness of autumnal colours... you get the picture!
If you like-love the photographs that I show of other people's wedding, it's a great start because think how much you'll love your own.
I believe in harmony and care that we connect because there is such a thing as the right photographer for you and your day.
CAN YOU PROVIDE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
Yes. Couples typically require a second photographer if they want a lot of images of bride and groom preparations in separate locations, or sometimes if they have a lot of guests or its a large venue.
If you're having fireworks and want to get great images of the fireworks and the guests at the same time, I often provide a second photographer just for the evening.
DO YOU PROVIDE ALBUMS?
A professionally designed contemporary album can be added to any package you book. I work with the best specialist providers of professionally produced wedding albums. I can provide "parents albums" too.
ARE YOU A FULL TIME PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
Yes, this has been my full-time job for almost 10 years.
My photography story started with film photography. Deciding to study film, digital, plus design 'properly' with other creatives is easily one of my happiest decisions. I formally studied Photography & Digital Design at Leeds, and regularly update and practice my skills.
I am also a qualified professional licentiate member of the British Institute of Professional Photography and of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. These are independent professional bodies who assess technical & compositional quality.
I am insured and will provide you with a clear contract before you book so that we each know what to expect.
WE ARE INTERESTED, WHAT DO WE DO?
As you've got this far I'm hoping that you love the pictures and you recognise the lasting power of emotive photography and value quality over quantity.
We talk. If we connect and you want to book me then I send out a contract. If you're happy you pay the booking fee and it's booked! (Thank you, xox).
My Top Tips follow....we talk through some of the day's details so we all know what to expect... the balance is paid...and before you know it...it's your wedding morning!
I give you photographs that let you step right back into your wedding every time you look at them!
