It was 2015. I was not the official photographer. But there I was, having been asked by the best friend of my partner to take pictures at her wedding. I enjoyed it thoroughly, but thought nothing more of it when I delivered her my images. It wasn’t until the happy couple visited us some months after that I was surprised and delighted to find a good 30 out of the 100 images they had printed in a book belonged to me!
And there it was. The moment I thought should really start doing this photography for a living.
I’ve since had many couples entrust me to cover what is the biggest day of their lives.
My background in fashion, portrait and street photography has undoubtedly informed the way capture the weddings I’m booked for. My passion for reportage photography means I like to feel like I’m that extra witness in amongst everything. There’s nothing more satisfying than supplying images that show moments the couple and their guests may have missed or not realised I managed to document. Again, it’s the street photographer in me, always trying to anticipate those moments happening so that a couple have a lovely timeline of their day and not just the result of overly long portrait sessions.
