Take time choosing your wedding photographer – it is a really big decision. You need to feel confident that your photographer will fit in on the day and work in an organized, quite and easy going way. Whilst it’s important to capture as many moments as possible, my approach is definitely not to make photography the main event. To me, reportage style wedding photography is all about being in the right place at the right time and quietly capturing things as they happen and in a discreet and respectful way.
My day starts as you begin to get ready. Some of the best shots are when the bride and groom haven’t yet seen each other and are preparing for the big day, surrounded by family, friends and loved ones – the excitement is palpable but this is often one of the more relaxed moments of the day for the wedding photographer! It’s usually at this point that I will also take time to capture some of the big and little details you have worked so hard to bring together.
The photography on the day is only half the story. I really enjoy the post-production process and use the weeks that follow to carefully edit the images, which will eventually create your wedding story in pictures. Once your images are ready I will contact you so that I can arrange to show them to you for the first time. Whilst I love and embrace the flexibility of digital photography I firmly believe that beautiful photographs aren’t only for albums or, worse still, to be left forgotten on computers or hard drives. For this reason I will also encourage you to mount and frame some of your favourite pictures so that you and your loved ones can continue to cherish them for many years to come. I work with a small number of album, frame and canvas suppliers who produce a beautiful range of traditional and contemporary options. I will show you a selection of albums, frames, mounts and canvasses so that we can choose the products that are right for you.
