COVID-19 Update
During the COVID-19 lockdown, I am still taking bookings for 2021 and beyond. Happy to chat with you over email, phone or video, so just get in touch. PS I expect that the second half of 2021, and then 2022 and 2023 will be quite busy with the backlog of weddings that have not been able to take place. So please contact me sooner than later! Take care, Scott.

Full Description
My photography style combines a modern yet natural and relaxed approach. I will try to take most of your photographs without interrupting yourself or your guests. In fact most of the time you won’t even be aware that I’m photographing. I will simply mingle with the guests and photograph the wedding as it naturally unfolds. I believe that your wedding story is the whole day, not just the formal bit in the middle. So as your Wedding Photographer Birmingham my philosophy is to document the whole story from start to end. From getting ready to getting drunk!

Thank you Bluefinch Photography!
Scott spent the whole day of our wedding day with us from 10am-10pm, he worked perfectly around us and made us feel so comfortable having him there. He was never intrusive and it was easy to forget he was there! (In a good way). We have looked through the photos hundreds of times! They are absolutely perfect! Scott captured every moment, and looking through them was like re-living the day over and over again. We couldn't of asked for anything more, they are just what we wanted!

Amazingly professional, could be more happy
Scott spent the whole day of our wedding day with us, he worked perfectly around us and made us feel so comfortable having him there. After all the planned shots (which he had loads of brilliant ideas on) it was easy to forget he was there. We have looked through the photos hundreds of times! Phtobooth was also great fun and a great focal point for the evening guests when the arrived to get into the spirit of things We are so happy with the pictures, they’re stunning and you did so well to make it look gorgeous, despite the weather. Our favourites are most definitely the ones of us in the car park – they’re going straight on the wall when we get ourselves organised in January. We couldn't of asked for anything more, they are just what we wanted! Thank you so much!

Absolutely delighted with all of the photographs
We are a both absolutely delighted with all of the photographs you have taken; everyone looks so relaxed and natural, just as we had wished, and l am sure this is largely down to your calm demeanour on the day and the discrete way in which you manage to to take all of your pictures – you were a pleasure to have around. Thank you once again for the wonderful photographs, it’s great that you have managed to capture all of those things that we didn’t get chance to observe for ourselves on the day itself and will look forward to receiving the USB stick once you have it available. If you would like us to leave a review or write a testimonial then we will be very happy to oblige.

FAQ
(9)

What is your most memorable wedding?

The ones that do things a little differently, like Ben and Zaras millions of Dominos pizza and champagne, or Sarah and Joe serving up dessert from the ice cream van.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, natural, humourous, contemporary, unobtrusive.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The lovely feedback and thank-you cards when people receive their photos.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

As soon as you've found a supplier you love, book them before someone else does.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The most important aspect is the actual photography, so I make sure the couple have taken a look at lots of photographs and like my style. Then I explain the photography style and how I'll go about photographing the wedding. Another important aspect is the Photographers personality - you need to like your Photographer as they'll be at your wedding all day, almost another guest! So hopefully we'll get to meet up for a chat (or at least a phone call or video call). I'll encourage you to ask as many questions as you need, in order to have all the information you need to decide on whether I'm the right Photographer for you. Then it's over to you to think and decide. If you decide to book me, then we'll do the paperwork and your £100 deposit will secure my services. Once you've booked me then that's another task you can tick off! Around a month before the wedding I'll get in touch again to discuss the photography in more detail, for example the itinerary for the day, any group shots you need and so on. Around 6-8 weeks after the wedding you'll receive hundreds of individually edited photographs on a USB, and then it's up to you whether you want to talk to me about albums, prints or any other photography gifts. We discuss (hopefully face to face) my photography service and your requirements, they (hopefully) book, we then go through the itinerary nearer the big day, I turn up on the big day with some cameras, snap snap snap, edit edit edit. The couple then get their pictures back on USB around 6 weeks later. Some couples choose sit down and create an album together, sometimes straight after the wedding, sometimes months after. Oh, and then they recommend me to all their friends :)

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

A natural or candid picture of them both together.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Probably the Groom and the Best Man sitting in the bath. You'll find it on my website :)

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace the weather, we'll take some pictures under shelters or brollies. Rainfall can look beautiful in photography.

Describe how you got into photography.

Like most people it started as a hoppy, photographing holidays and trips around the world, then I did some weddings for free for friends, then they told me I should do it professionally, so I did.
