So this page gives you more of an idea of who I am and how I work.
My style is a mixture of candid and creative moments – I love using colour and shape and rarely ask people to look directly at the camera. I have a sketchbook full of ideas and inspiration and am proud to be constantly learning and trying out new things.
The photography element of a wedding day shouldn’t be a chore – NOTHING on your wedding day should be a chore if you can help it! Sure, its’ not always easy to be in front of the camera, but that’s mostly to do with being too aware of yourself – trying to do a ‘nice’ expression. What you end up with is a weird, tense smile that is so far from your natural face it can put you off for life! The trick is to mess about – to play games, talk to each other, to genuinely ENJOY YOURSELF. Fun looks good on anyone, and I believe creating that fun is an essential part of being a good wedding photographer.
Not to blow my own trumpet but I AM a bit of a pro at this – I’ve been a portrait photographer for 11 years, starting with families and kids and then setting up my own wedding photography business. I have photographed all ages and walks of life from teeny babies to the CEO’s, and I have enjoyed learning how to best portray the characters of each and every one. Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it takes a wee bit more time and reassurance, but in the end I will always produce a set of images that you will be proud to point yourself out in.
I know the money side of things can be difficult – weddings are expensive beasties and photography take a sizeable bite out of the budget, but it’s the part of the wedding that goes with you through your life. I know I would say this (haha!) but it really is worth investing in. Even if you go for a half-day or a bespoke option to fit to a strict budget ANY amount of time with a creative professional photographer will be worth it. Its important to me that my prices are listed clearly online and there are no hidden costs or scary surprises – what you see is what you get.
Have a look at my portfolio and if you like my work check out the prices page. If that side of things is all good next stop is my testimonials and Google reviews, and then if you’re feeling keen give me a shout to check I’m free on your wedding date :) We can go from there!
Whether or not I spend it with you I wish you a wonderful wedding day – remember it is all about having a good time. Go celebrate your love with your family and friends, go minimal on anything that stresses you out, be comfortable and spoil yourselves rotten. This is going to be one of the best days of your life!
