One of the reasons I love what I do is I get to work with so many different couples, finding out what makes you unique and discovering the sophisticated touches and planning you all put into such a special day. I don’t pigeon hole myself into one particular style – for me, it’s about telling the authentic story of your wedding, reflecting your personalities and connection to each other.
This means capturing the fleeting nerves, raw emotion and those unexpected (and sometimes hilarious) moments with candour.
As a result, I produce a beautiful mixture of photographs which remain faithful to the day. My clients love the blend of gorgeous images (which show off the beauty of your venue, theme, outfits and everything else you’ve put such careful thought into) alongside candid shots which preserve the character, heart and essence of your day.
Take a look at my gallery for examples of my work.
How I Work – The Wedding Ninja
My nickname in the industry is ‘The Wedding Ninja’ – just swap a sword for a camera and you’ll get the picture.
My discreet and unobtrusive presence means I record key moments of your ceremony, reception and the joyful celebrations, all while working quietly in the background. Some of the best images are those which reflect people being themselves and living in the moment, having been completely unaware of my presence.
I also make sure any group and portrait shots are as easy and painless as possible. I have a talent for delicately and quickly guiding guests and loved ones to get the stunning, formal pictures you want, ensuring everyone looks their best.
Before Your Wedding Day…
Before Your Wedding Day…
It’s important to feel you’re in a safe pair of hands, so after you get in touch, I’ll invite you to my professional photography studio at my home. Think of this as your calm, dedicated space where you can explore ideas, browse through albums of my work and plan out your day in detail.
I like to find out more about your feelings about photography and how you want to remember your wedding. Not everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera, so I’ll support and guide as much as you need me to throughout. Throw in a sprinkle of my famous organisational skills (I’m NEVER late) and a bubbly personality, and I hope you find the experience effortless, personal and fun.
If you choose me as your wedding photographer, I’ll Skype or FaceTime you 3 to 4 weeks before to establish the finer details of the day so that you know everything is in hand.
Receiving Your Wedding Photographs
After your wedding, I turnaround image proofs within 3 to 4 weeks (another of my ninja qualities). You’ll receive a USB of high resolution images, as well as access to a password protected, online gallery where you can view your photographs and easily share them with your friends and family.
There are plenty of other format options too, including beautiful, bespoke albums.
