Now you've said 'YES' but before you get to the 'I DO' there are a few things to plan....
Who: With a wealth of wedding photographers out there it is so important for you as the bride and groom to make sure you choose the right one for your special day. Not only are you entrusting someone to capture beautiful images and document a most incredible day for you but they are also going to be by (or near) your side for a large part of it. It's got to be someone you feel you can trust and someone whose work excites and inspires you. For me personally it's all about getting to know the couple before the big day. It's all about the initial chats on the phone, the face to face meetings, the engagement shoot and really listening to what my couple want on their big day. It is YOUR day after all! I have all of my experience, training, ideas, inspirations and passion to bring to the table but the most important thing is getting to know who you are and what you want so I can produce personal and beautiful images which capture the heart of the day and will be an heirloom to pass onto your children and the generations to come.
How: My approach to Weddings is to honestly and creatively document your day. It’s simple but I hope my photographs speak for themselves. I want you to laugh and cry and relive the day as you look back on your photos time and time again, year after year. I work in an unobtrusive manner, documenting the day as it unfolds and capturing the emotion, the beauty and the uniqueness of each important event of the day. I strive to truly capture the personalities and relationship between two special people and their loved ones.
Why: Call me a romantic but it's the fluttering nerves of a bride getting ready, the last sentence of a speech being penned onto paper, the silhouette of a pristine and long sought after dress hanging yet untouched in a window, the smile which steals across the grooms face as the bride enters for the first time, the tears in the eyes and of course the laughter the fun and the joy of each special day are the reasons why I shoot weddings. If I can capture the essence of that and give it to you to cherish for posterity then I have done my job.
What: As well as coverage on the day, I offer ‘Engagement Shoots’ and ‘Mucky Dress Shoots’ and have products ranging from digital images to bespoke handmade wedding albums and fine art framed prints.
Please see my 'Investment page' for information on my fees.
And Now: If after taking a look through examples of my work you think I might be the photographer for you and your big day please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat over the phone or email to discuss your day and to ask any questions of me which you might have. I look forward to hearing all about your ideas, hopes and dreams for your big day!
