- Documentary Wedding Photography My style is a mix of completely natural documentary photography throughout the day with some creative portraits of the bride and groom and fun, relaxed group shots. Quite simply, documentary photography for me is about telling a story. The story of your most special day from start to finish, with no awkward posing or interruption just pure real moments from the day. People say that you will never know the true value of a moment, until it becomes a memory and I truly believe that I help to preserve those memories by capturing each moment as it happens. Real moments, become real memories. Obviously when shooting in a documentary way, nothing is staged and I don’t interfere with moments as they happen BUT I still find I can be creative and shoot in my own way by using the light that is available and finding angles and viewpoints that make the most of subject I am photographing. Creative Portraits – When it comes to the shot’s of the bride and groom together, I take just a very brief period away from the rest of the the guests for some beautiful, unique portraits. Usually a short walk around the grounds of your venue is ideal, my approach is still very relaxed and you won’t be asked to pose awkwardly. So there it is… True documentary photography with some creative portraits of the bride and groom, it’s the perfect combination of story telling and natural but stunning portraiture.

What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Follow your heart and remember it's your wedding.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Wedding Umbrellas and positive attitude. Some of my favourite weddings have been in the rain and bad weather can actually help to create some stunning photographs!
Describe how you got into photography.
Photography started for me as a hobby, for years I photographed landscapes and animals just for enjoyment but I soon realised that photography was something I wanted to do more seriously.
