Your wedding day, as it happens
It’s a day that you spend a long time planning so carefully, filled with excitement, suspense, emotion, drama and fun. It can pass you by incredibly fast, gone in a flash. I believe that great wedding photography should be about creating a timeless record that enables you to relive these fleeting moments forever.
Known as documentary or reportage wedding photography, or sometimes wedding photojournalism, my approach simply means that I tell the real story of your whole day through my images. There is no contrived posing, prompting or intervention. I’m not interested in dragging you away from the party for a photoshoot. You have the rest of your lives to pose for portraits.
Your wedding is a once in a lifetime experience to be enjoyed to the full with your family and friends, not your photographer.
What to expect from my approach on the day
I arrive a couple of hours before the ceremony to capture the preparations and build-up, then on to the ceremony venue where the guests are gathering. With the permission of the officiant or registrar I shoot discreetly throughout your ceremony, and afterwards as you greet all of your friends and family. I take a short break whilst everyone eats, then I’m back for the speeches and your first dance, followed by the evening party. I’ll be around long enough to capture plenty of shots of your guests throwing some shapes and then I will disappear into the night.
When I sit down at the computer I will remove duplicate images, and any unflattering expressions. Finally I perform colour corrections and black and white conversions, leaving you with a set of around 400 fully-finished images. You’ll receive all of these images as high-resolution files that you can use to produce your own prints, and a special set that are perfect for use online. You’ll also receive a slideshow set to music and a link to an online gallery which your family and friends can enjoy wherever they are.
