Natural, relaxed, unposed Wedding Photography

I cover and document weddings very naturally in a creative story telling style.

I like to keep things very simple and completely relaxed, you don’t have to worry about me at all. In fact, I pretty much tell you to ignore me and the camera for the whole day (although not in a rude way please;)

I think one of the best ways to get a better idea of how I approach and photograph a wedding is to take a look at what some of my couples have said over the past few years- have a look at my testimonials page here.

Please read on if you want a more in depth view of how I document a wedding day and hopefully this will answer any questions too that you may have.

Documentary Style

I love capturing

NATURAL IMAGES THAT HAVE REAL EMOTION AND FEELING

 …it’s all about the moments and the moments in between the moments. I want to capture the atmosphere of the day and tell the story of your wedding so that you can re-live it through your photographs.

I will record the happiness you and your guests felt on the day, the joy, the laughter; and also the emotion and the tears, all beautifully documented.

WHAT I TRULY LOVE IS THAT EACH AND EVERY WEDDING I PHOTOGRAPH IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

My role is to give you an

HONEST STORY OF YOUR WEDDING DAY

It is never about how I think the wedding day should look, but how it really is. I don’t want to direct and impact on your experience, instead I will photograph how your wedding day felt, capturing the emotions and connections between you and your partner, your family and all your guests.

I really want my shots to be fun too, this is so important as it is such a fun and happy occasion and I will make sure that I document this too. Your guests are so important I know and I want to capture as many images of them as well in a natural and fun environment.

 Couple Portraits

I will always have a little walk with the two of you to create some natural beautiful portraits. I want to capture how you interact with each other and allow you to be yourselves. My aim is to always give you something truly amazing and unique that you have never seen before of yourselves.

Again I will not be posing you during these shots, asking you to put your hands on your hip and look wistfully in to the distance. I don’t want to give you the same shots that I took last week either, but instead show how you connect with each other. I will go as far as asking you where to stand so that I can capture the best light and I will have a little chat with you before we go off on a walk. These shots are a real fun time for you too and a moment where you can relax and enjoy some time with each other.

Landscape photography is another huge love of mine and I get great pleasure with using beautiful scenic backdrops to produce creative portraits of the two of you.

Usually 15 minutes is long enough, but I am very happy to go for longer if you wished, just not for 2 hours!

If we’re blessed with good weather, I often am although I can’t guarantee it I’m afraid, it can be lovely to pop off for another quick mooch perhaps after food to grab some low light shots too and perhaps a sunset- these can be really special!

Formal Group Shots

Of course I totally understand that you will want some group shots and I’m very happy to do this and anything else that you may want, it is your day. Most couples have around 10 formal group shots and I will always ask for a list so that we can move through these as quickly as possible, meaning you can get on with celebrating your day. I will shoot these in a relaxed style, trying to get a smile from everyone involved- I have my special techniques 😉

I am un-obtrusive, calm and gentle whilst at the same time being very friendly and warm to all your family and guests. I love to laugh too. Have a little look at what past couples have to say on my testimonials page here and get more of a feel of who I am over on my about me page.

I am totally committed to you and your wedding and to providing you with a creative collection of images that you can treasure for years and years to come.  I continue to seek inspiration and to better my photography and business. I love being a wedding photographer.

If this all sounds good so far then do have a little look at my collections page here and you can contact me here to see if I am still available for your wedding, I do hope so.
