Full Description
My special offer of including a pre wedding portrait shoot in the grounds of your chosen venue is a great way of getting to know you and it helps you to relax in from of the camera. The wedding day photography generally starts with getting ready and carries on through to the first dance. I like to have planned any family and guest shots that you would like in advance, that way we can use the time effectively and efficiently making it as much fun as possible! The rest of the day is much more informal and relaxed. I can tailor make any package to suit your own personal way of creating your special wedding day. I am happy to meet you and chat about your day and show you some more specific wedding photographs.

Thank you
Thank you so much for the very kind, and helpful, wedding gift of having Don as our Photographer at our wedding. Gemma said as her few words of advise to ensure that we get a good photographer and we did not even know where to start! Thankfully Don was an absolute superstar, incredibly professional, patient, and skilful and turned out some wonderful pictures of the day utilising the most of the venue! A huge weight off our minds this year! Lots of Love Peter

Not only will it give us exceptional photos to preserve the memory of our wonderfully, but we would have never been able to find such stellar photographer. Thank you so much and we can't wait to share the photographs with you. Love Sarah

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After our initial meeting and subsequent booking, the next meeting is generally a few weeks prior to the wedding for their engagement style portrait shoot in the grounds of their chosen venue, for a relaxed walk about taking a few informal shots. We would then discuss planning the group shot requirements and make sure we have a list to help make efficient use of the time to help it flow easily! The wedding day is generally around 8 hours long from getting ready through to the first dance. I try to have the photographs ready within 2-3 weeks after the wedding and meet up to have a quick viewing with the couple.

A fun group shot with all their guests

Describe how you got into photography.

I left school at 17 to work for a photographer and spent the next ten years working for various other photographers and learning all the art go being a photographer. I went freelance at the age of 27 and have never looked back - it has been great fun, hard work but more importantly I have enjoyed myself along the way!
