During your wedding planning process, one of the most daunting tasks is finding the right photographer for you.
The photographer plays such an important role on your wedding day, capturing all those precious moments and memories that you may not be able to recreate. You need to trust your wedding photographer to know what to do in all situations as well as photographer who will enjoy the wedding, be a part of the day with energy and enthusiasm.
You must be completely comfortable with them and entrust them to get the most beautiful images of you and your family; not just for you, but those family and friends that couldn’t attend the wedding - and perhaps even for future generations!
What to expect
During the wedding I quietly capture all the beautiful moments as they happen, rather than direct every moment.
The formal portraits will be pre-arranged before the wedding, I would have the schedule of timings, locations and your group photo list so formal photos can be organised with plenty of time for a stress-free wedding. This should be an enjoyable time for you and your partner.
After the formal portraits, we will capture intimate shots where I focus on the relationship between the two of you as you are. I will guide you through posing to look most flattering, but most of all you can be yourself and I shall reflect that in the images. Some may feel this is the scary part, having a camera capture the real you as a couple, but trust me to make these images for you, to capture the magic between you. You can see from my website and example albums how every wedding is unique.
The only part I’m not present in during the day is the meal time, this is where the caterers feed the suppliers too, then I’m back capturing more moments for the speeches and the cake cutting.
After the wedding
While you’re enjoying your honeymoon,I continue my work. I view the images (backing them up to multiple locations!) and hand editing every single photo that plays a part in the story of your day. I spend most of my time on the post production to ensure I produce consistently great images throughout the day that look stunning and individual to you.
I absolutely love to see images printed and not just on a screen. Whether it’s a hand crafted album or as a large aluminium print on the wall. I want to give you images you will feel proud of enough to want to print and share with your friends and family. I have chosen GraphiStudio as my album supplier as they produce consistent quality with their products. I also include a USB of the high resolution images for you to print from yourself.
Most of the weddings I photograph come from word of mouth referrals. From the wonderful feedback I receive I believe I have achieved my aspiration of becoming a trustworthy photographer and someone who they would want to have capture the biggest day of their lives, not just for them but for their friends and family too.
I create images you will love for the rest of your life.
