The first thing you’ll probably notice about me when talking about wedding photography is how much I flippin’ LOVE my job! I actually just really love weddings – if I wasn’t a photographer I’m sure I’d be a florist or a cake lady or something instead.
I love colour and hazy sunlight, so my photos are often dreamy and warm. I think I’m a little bit obsessed with lens flare. And if I had to categorise my style of photography I’d probably have to say contemporary with a touch of the romantic and a big dollop of colour.
One of the things which I believe sets me apart from the many other photographers out there, is the fact that I’ve been doing this job for 14 wonderful years. It’s given me an incredible amount of experience so I really have tackled just about every tricky lighting or weather condition you can imagine… so pouring rain or brutal sun, I know how to deal with whatever the day throws at me!
My main aim during a wedding, is to capture you naturally, beautifully, and authentically. My clients aren’t professional models – they don’t usually know how to pose or what to do, so it’s my job to gently guide you through everything, capturing you and your partner genuinely and flatteringly. I don’t think I’ve met a couple yet who have said “I just LOVE having my photo taken!” so you’re not alone if it’s not your favourite thing to do in the world, but I promise I’ll make it fun.
So, why should you book me over the trillion squillion other photographers out there? Well, I truly believe that I am a little different, in that I put YOUR enjoyment of YOUR wedding at the absolute heart of everything I do. Yes, of course it’s crucial that I take gorgeous wedding photos that I know you want and will treasure forever, but I can promise you this: I’m not going to get them by making you stand around for an age doing group shots or by taking you away from your guests for hours on end. I’ve been doing this job for long enough that I know exactly how to get fresh, authentic and beautiful photos, quickly. I won’t fuss and flap about; I’ll get what I know you’ll love and then you’ll be back partying with your friends again in a jiffy.
As you can see I am married! These are two of my favourite pictures of Bolo and I on our wedding day back in 2010. I absolutely love my own wedding photos and completely understand now from an ex bride how utterly crucial beautiful and timeless wedding photos truly are.
Ooh, and then there were 4. Here’s a pic of our wonderful little people – Ted & Betsey. As they experience everything in the world for the first time I find myself looking at it all with new, fresh eyes. They makes every day hilarious and are leading us on the most terrific adventure.
