My Approach

My Approach

First and foremost, I love to take photos. My camera is part of me and goes everywhere, it’s this passion for documentary photography and capturing moments that has allowed me to develop wonderful relationships with wedding clients. I love being part of a couple’s big day, and feel honoured to be creating something that they will look back on in years to come.

My aim is simple, to provide you with a beautiful visual story. From the little details you’ve spent weeks and months deciding on, through to those emotional moments of the day, all captured in a discreet and personal manner. From the moment I arrive at the venue to the moment I pack my kit away, I’m constantly moving around looking for shots, lighting and locations. I love to observe people and capture the day as it unfolds, often you won’t even notice I’m there, working hard in the background to acquire those special moments.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

My style of wedding photography is documentary photo journalism, a style that allows you to be photographed in a relaxed and informal way, with the aim of removing the dreaded fear of having to pose! It’s extremely important for me to capture your day and character as it is, no gimmicks or distractions, with the end result being a collection of beautiful images that tell a story about you and your day.

Of course, I love to take portraits too, and will always help coordinate portrait sessions into the day. Arranged in a sympathetic way and ensuring that everything runs smoothly so that you get all of the formal images you want to document family and friends.

I won’t make you do cheesy poses or anything that doesn’t feel like you. I’m not there to tell you what kind of wedding you should have, but I will be there to capture the moments as they happen and in a way that reflects you.
