As soon as I saw Lucas’ portfolio I knew he was the absolute only person that I could trust with recording our special day.
Looking through his other weddings I could see the kind of day that my husband and I had always talked about: incredible warmth, and lots of fun and love just streaming out of every picture. I’m really self-conscious and usually hate having my photo taken so the idea of having to stand and pose filled me with absolute dread. Luc reassured me that we could do as much or as little of the “traditional” wedding photography as we were comfortable with, and that he and the second photographer (Chris Basford) would be to hand to capture the candid moment we might miss.
When we spoke to Luc about the possibility of going down to London to do our engagement photos he was totally on board and couldn’t have been more accommodating, even when we merrily dragged him round the city for 8 miles in the height of summer, finding our favourite spots to photograph! The results were stunning - I was even more certain that we’d made the exact right decision booking him.
On the day itself Lucas covered my bridal prep, but I really barely noticed him at all. On the odd occasion I would spot him in my peripheral vision he’d give me a big, friendly beaming smile that instantly put me at ease. The rest of my bridal party commented the same – in all the commotion Luc was the port in the storm, and managed to capture the beautiful moments that I didn’t even know were happening until I was looking back through the photos.
During the ceremony and the reception I spotted Luc and Chris only once or twice, but they were so professional and respectful to our guests that that they were no fuss whatsoever – it honestly felt like they were a couple of our pals who just happened to be carrying cameras! They made people feel comfortable, and because of that were able to get exactly the kind of fun, natural pictures we wanted.
The photos themselves were absolutely beautiful and couldn’t have told the story of the day any better. We created the day but Lucas captured it perfectly to create the memories, and we’ll be forever grateful.
If I could give you than 5 stars I would! Thank you, Lucas. C & T x
