I think that it’s my job as your photographer to give you full and comprehensive cover of your day. I aim to provide you with a documentary based illustration of your day that captures the moments, as they really happen.
That being said, I do believe that there should be time for some gorgeous, relaxed images of the Bride and Groom together to add to your final collection of images. Ideally I’d love to spend between 30 minutes to an hour with you both (if possible), without your wedding party guests looking on.
For the most part I love to use natural and ambient light rather than flash. Not only does it make for super pretty pictures but i think that it’s great to remember the light as it was on that moment of your day. That being said, you do have to roll with the British weather from time to time and I won’t shy away from some subtle photographic lighting if the moment calls for it.
So much care and planning goes into your day, I love to preserve the details from the dress to the cake. I try to capture guests enjoying the party; laughing, drinking, dancing and generally having a lovely time so that you can look back at the photographs, and remember all of the day, as it actually happened.
Whilst the majority of my photography is relaxed and informal, I am happy to take some posed family shots, although I try and keep the formal shots to than 10 family groupings. I feel that they’re a valuable record of your family at an important time. I will always send over an online questionnaire so you can be sure to include the lists of family groupings to make sure that nothing gets overlooked on the day.
