As a wedding and portrait photographer, the best part of my job is delivering the final pictures to my clients and seeing their reaction. I want to create pictures that people fall in love with and treasure for years.
I have been taking photographs since I was 14 and I developed into a wedding photographer because it is the most special day of a person's life and I love capturing it for them. The emotion of the day is fantastic to shoot and nothing pleases me more than getting that special shot. The photographs of a wedding provide a lens through which people remember their special day, so it is important to get it right and I love the challenge that presents.
Deposit - After transferring a £100 deposit, the booking will be confirmed. Then I suggest meeting for a coffee to discuss what style you are looking for and how we can make it happen.
The day itself - I will arrive in the morning, capturing the bridal preparations. It is in these quiet moments where the photographic story begins.
The Ceremony - I take a discreet approach in these moments, I use a silent shutter to not distract from your special moment and I move around as quietly as possible. The ‘just married’ confetti shots are always a winner!
The Portrait Session - After the ceremony I suggest to clients that we block some time, around 45 mins to an hour, to do some posed shots. I bring off-camera flashes to get some really creative photos of the couple. After that we can bring the family in and get some shots with them as well.
The Reception - I will be at the reception for it’s entirety, as the night goes on there are some great shots to be had of the party.
Afterwards - As the client, your work is now done. It is up to me to select photos and edit them. The post-processing includes colour correction, cropping and sharpening. This is an important part of the creative process and can take several weeks. If the couple have requested a wedding album, then one will be hand made at this point. The photos will be sent to the couple on the agreed presentation date which will be 4 weeks after the wedding day.
