My approach to wedding photography and how I work on your day (as well as before and after your day!) is important for you to know so you can ensure my style is in line with exactly what you want from your photographer and photos.
Put simply, my aim is to capture candid, honest and emotive photos throughout the day that tell a story of your wedding, in order for you, your guests and even those who couldn’t be there to be able to relive all those wonderful moments over and over again for years to come.
Before Your Day
If possible, I always try to meet with you before the wedding day to get to know you both a little bit; if that’s not convenient, we can Skype or chat over the phone! This is always great for going over any details and for me to find out what’s important in terms of the photography on your day.
A few weeks before your wedding I will get in touch to see how you’re getting on and whether you have a schedule sorted for the day. This is always really helpful to know when everything’s happening so we can make sure we’re in the right place at the right time! I will also ask you to start thinking about a list of group photos you would like so we can whizz through them as efficiently as possible so everyone can get back to their champagne!
On Your Day
For most of the day, I will remain in ‘fly on the wall' mode, however I will jump out of this at certain points to get some group photos (if you're having them) and also to whisk you both away for a few minutes to get a few photos of you both as newlyweds.
‘Couple portraits’ may sound daunting to some but I promise you it will be fun, relaxed and the result will be amazing.
This is also a great time for you both to get away from the madness of the day for a bit to take everything in and just be with each other! Before the wedding, I always do some scouting of the venue (if I haven’t photographed there before) to find some fun locations for us to shoot in.
After Your Day
Sit back and relax - you’re married! I will send you a ‘sneak peek’ of your day within 48 hours in the form of a blog post (or a private link if requested) so you have something to look at and share straight away.
Then I take about 3-4 weeks to process and edit your wedding photos. On the day I try to shoot in as much natural light as possible in order for the photos to be natural and a real representation of what your day looked like. In other words, no photoshopping any sunsets or castles into the background when there weren't any (yes I have actually had this requested!)
