Photographing a wedding day is all about immersive, genuine, joy-filled storytelling – from creative portraits of the two of you, to informal, fun documentary shots, to arms-in-the-air dance floor action, I love every minute of it.
Everything is also super relaxed and natural. The only time I will lightly direct is during the group photos (which don’t have to be stiff and boring!) and during portraits of the two of you (which are more a glorified walk and chat around your venue and surroundings). The rest of the time, I am observing, shooting, chatting and mixing in with everyone.
To get to be a part of wedding days from the getting ready through to the party is a really bloody privileged thing to do. I will well up during the vows, belly laugh with you during the speeches, and be in the thick of it on the dance floor – recording all the big moments, small moments and everything in between…
I also want you to be comfortable with me being around from the get-go, like a familiar face and blending in as a guest as much as possible. This is why getting to know you both beforehand, chatting over a coffee or a pint or two, or via Skype, and building a rapport is so important to me. The better I know you, and the more you know me, the more relaxed you’ll be and it’ll be like having an old pal along on the day.
