Im there to tell the story of your day; to capture all the key moments as well as some of the happenings that you would otherwise miss. I know that I do my best work and get the most natural pictures when people have forgotten I’m there, and that’s what I aim for.
I’ll take time to meet with you and to get to know both of you before the big day, so that you’re at ease with what I’m doing, in advance. You can tell me what you’d like (and what you wouldn’t!) and I can make sure I work accordingly.
On the day, I’ll be unobtrusive, dressed as a guest. It’s not my style to hold up the event for a myriad of posed photographs. (Of course, if you want group shots and portraits, I’ll ensure that they’re done, but without stealing precious time away from you and your guests).
So, I’ll photograph the bride at home; later, the groom as he waits for her to arrive. I’ll capture the wedding service and immediately afterwards, as you greet your guests as newly-weds and they offer their joy and congratulations. I will follow as you move onto your venue, capturing events as they unfold, and recording interactions between you and your guests. At some stage, I’ll sneak the couple away for some portraits – if possible outside, at sunset. But I’ll have done my homework, and will know exactly where we’re going and what we’re doing, so you won’t be missing for long!
Within a week, you will be able to see your edited gallery online, which you can share with your friends and family. You’ll then have the delightfully difficult task of selecting the photographs you’d like to include in your printed album, and the image you’d like to use for your thank you cards. Before you know it, your album will arrive, and you’ll experience the fabulous feeling of opening it up for the very first time.
After that, how the rest of your story unfolds is up to you...
