For the vast majority of a wedding day, I work as a documentary wedding photographer, which means that I capture your day exactly as it happens, naturally, rather than making things happen. It is your day, not mine. In fact, apart from when I take group photographs of your family and friends, and also portraits of you both (which I only ask for a very short amount of time), nothing will be staged and my aim is that you to forget I am even there and just concentrate on having fun and having the best day ever. Through the moments being real and genuine, your wedding photographs will remind you of not only what your day looked like, but more importantly, they will also take you back to how you felt. The two things which I love to capture the most on a wedding day are heartfelt genuine moments and beautiful creative portraits.
The short time that we take for portraits however is a nice chance for us to create some really beautiful and natural photographs of you both and a chance for me to become creative and produce images for you which you will love. This can also be a really great time for you both to spend a little bit of time together on the wedding day, away from your family and friends for a few minutes. Many of my bride and grooms can be quite nervous about having their photograph taken but that is completely normal (I would be the same!) and I love how, when you see that there is literally nothing to worry about, they can really enjoy this time and that really comes across in the photographs and because of this my bride and grooms are often shocked at how much they love their portrait photographs – and there is no nicer feeling for me than that.
