I always feel very honoured when I’m asked to be a couples’ wedding photographer. This is, after all, one of the most important days of your lives.
My aim is to tell a story with my wedding photography from the beginning of the day through to your first dance. I try to capture all of the little details that you have taken months, sometimes years, planning from the perfume that you are wearing to the table decorations.
Your wedding day is an emotional rollercoaster, from anticipation and excitement through to tears of joy and laughter. On the day, it will be impossible to take everything in. Before you know it, you’ll be ending your first day as husband and wife. My wife says she had no idea what our flowers in the church looked like and can’t recall even seeing them! That’s what I’m there for!
But most of all, your day is about the people. And that’s the bit I really love.
Comfortable in front of the camera
One of the most important parts of my job is making sure you, the bride and groom, feel at ease in front of the camera. This is where my years of dealing with people comes into its own!
It’s not an easy thing to do. Personally, I hate being on “the other side”. But my laid-back style helps even the most camera-shy couples enjoy their day. My style is very natural. I particularly enjoy natural light photography – but you don’t need to have a sunny day to create mesmerising outdoor shots!
At our pre-wedding meeting, we will run through the timings for your day, your list of must have photos and any dos and don’ts! But the most important thing is that you enjoy your day and can take things at your own pace.
The heart of marriage is memories
When you return from your Honeymoon, you will sit down together and look back on your perfect day from beginning to end, and everything in between.
Wedding photography shouldn’t be about settling for second best. After all, your photos and memories are all that you will have to remember the day.
