...to inspire, empower, and encapsulate the sheer joy and beauty within us all. Discovering unnoticed magic, feelings, textures, and connections and have a bloody good laugh whilst doing it.
How will I apply that to your wedding day? Read on...
As a relaxed documentary style wedding photographer my focus is drawn to the real raw moments. Most of what I shoot is unposed and candid but of course, I love spending a little time just the two of you, for fun and relaxed portraits.
Let me be your eyes as I discover all the unseen magic that truly creates your unique day.
For a full day package the ideal time for me to start is 2 hours before the ceremony. It gives me a chance to capture the magic and anticipation of the day ahead, the stunning details and get to know some of your favourite people in the process.
Throughout your day, I’ll be getting my steps in making sure I catch every magic moment, including the moments that went unseen. That quick kiss, bum squeeze, high five or those tender gazes at the dinner table. All the moments that will transport you right back to the best day of your lives.
I understand how important it is for you to feel relaxed on your wedding day and so posing is kept to a minimum. For your couple portraits we'll go for a wander and I'll capture the love and laughs between you both. I never keep you too long so you can get back to your guests and having fun! I can't have you missing out on the canapes!
but you're not it's biggest fan...
If I had a pound for everyone who said they don't like having their photo taken... I, well I'd still be shooting weddings because I love them, but you get the idea.
I get it though, and so here's what we'll do. My approach is somewhere in between fly on the wall and a friendly face who slots right into your guest list.
For the most part you won't know I'm there but I also love to mingle with your guests as I find it helps them warm up to me taking their picture.
For couple portraits, I keep this short and sweet with a little gentle guidance but mainly I just want you to be YOU! I'll adapt to your vibe and your energy and we'll have some fun.
Although my style is relaxed documentary, I will of course get those family photos if they're important to you. It will be quick + painless I promise, and you'll be back enjoying your drinks reception before you know it.
