My approach is quite simply natural, nothing posed or staged, I capture moments as they unfold. My ultimate aim is for you to not even realise I’m there.
I’m a photojournalism enthusiast, telling stories with photos, and what better way than at weddings.
My 15 years as a press photographer have helped me interact with people and get the best out of situations. Newspaper and magazine editors have often told me that they can only fit one image on the page, so there has to be one picture that tells the whole story. Along with the added pressure of getting that picture in a very short space of time due to deadlines, thinking fast and intuitively. Having the best part of 12 hours to capture your wedding day, I feel I can truly get absorbed and get the best out of it.
Looking back at my time in press it now feels like I was training, learning, tweaking my style, in a way waiting for wedding photojournalism to happen. I continue to learn, everyday and at every wedding and the better picture is always out there.
Wedding pre-shoot photography
As a couple, you have the option for a pre-shoot a few weeks before your wedding, at a location that means something to you. It’s to get you aware of me being around carrying a camera, making you feel comfortable and relaxed, but more so you see results of my style, how I work and reinforcing the undeniable fact that I photographed you both, on that beach or in that woods, yes you! And looking pretty good too, and you are happy with the results.
Bridal prep photography
I’m there from the morning preparations, up until the first dance, and even beyond. I stay for up to an hour into the evening’s entertainment, as you then get some really great pictures of the party. This is where my style benefits your wedding, capturing the night unfolding, documenting the party atmosphere.
