On your big day…
You’ve got the idea now that I love natural, relaxed photographs! To achieve this style, we’ll either be chatting and having a laugh like mates while I snap away, or I’ll be in the background, observing and photographing your day as it happens. I want to preserve the real moments between you and your family, your children, friends and guests and of course between you as a couple.
I'm happy to do a handful of group shots but I don't want them to dominate your day, so just a handful, please! And as part of your wedding photographs, I will need about half an hour with the bride and groom alone to capture your unique love story. Those aside, you're free to party!
You like? I’d love to capture it for you!
My experience as a Mum and also a teacher enable me to build a relaxed, natural relationship with children and adults alike so you will feel at ease in front of the lens, no matter how camera-shy! Don’t worry if you feel a little nervous or self-conscious about my camera, this will soon be behind you. I'm calm; you and your guests will be too! I have had tonnes of positive feedback from clients who were amazed at what a fun experience they found their shoot to be and how much they enjoyed it.
When it comes to the style of my images and the editing process, I am all about creating a look for you that will stand the test of time and make you happy for the rest of your lives: beautiful portraits, emotional moments captured and all the details with a generous splattering of creativity! So artificial lighting effects are not really my thang! I use natural light whenever possible and do all my own post-production, editing each image individually into my signature style. I always aim to get it right 'in camera' in terms of the exposure, colour balance and composition, so that Photoshop a tool to enhance the scene as it really was, rather than drastically alter it or superimpose effects.
So, if you are looking for a relaxed and creative approach to your wedding photography then we will work well together. There will be no gimmicks, no elaborate or unrealistic effects; simply beautiful and timeless images that will last a lifetime and will not go out of fashion. From the moment you contact me I am there to guide you through the whole process. Firstly, we meet up for a cuppa and a chat about your big day, nothing formal, just a friendly chat about your ideas, the venue, your colour scheme and ideas for your photography. My aim is to tell the story of your big day in an unobtrusive way to produce images that you will cherish for years to come.
