Full Description
My photographic style can be described as contemporary documentary, also known as photojournalism or reportage. For me, this style of photography is about observation and timing Documentary photography at its finest engages audiences in someone else’s story, their experiences and their life. The pictures create an emotional response in the viewer, making you smile, laugh, cry and even gasp in shock. As a documentary wedding photographer, I record the day through story telling images that capture the moments as they naturally happen, focussing on the emotions and interactions of the couple and their guests. I capture the detail of their story as it unfolds throughout the day. It’s important as a wedding photographer I present my couple with a set of images that tell their unique story and provide a lifetime of memories that are more than an image on a page or a screen, but capture the feelings behind that moment. Great documentary photography requires all the elements of photography in its highest artistic form, including good composition and beautiful lighting however it’s crucial component is the experience to know where to position yourself so that you can capture that illusive moment when it happens. Timing is key - that illusive moment is gone in a second forever.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Russell & Emma at Robin hoods Bay, UK. Outdoor ceremony, beautiful sunny day, the coast and rugged cliffs as a backdrop. The couple walked down into the bay after ceremony for photographs and all the holiday makers were clapping them and wanting selfies with them! We managed to capture some beautiful photographs down by the sea before we headed back up that 'bloody hill' to the venue for the best fish & chips ever eaten at a wedding! Guest's were good fun, dancing into the early hours - a good old fashioned knees up as they say!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Contemporary, fun, relaxed, natural, real.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Capturing the unseen moments, the quiet moments that are unseen amongst the chaos of the day. Real story telling photos are simply the best.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Focus on you two and what you want - don't feel pressured to cater for everyone's taste and expectations. It's your wedding, do what you want - everything else is just a pantomime surrounding you.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

During the Grooms speech, the groom gave his father-in-law a bottle of very old whiskey his deceased dad had been keeping to drink for a special occasion, he told him how much he thought of him and said his dad would have too. Tears flooded the room and I found it hard to hold back the tears, a lump in the throat moment!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Meet up to discuss the wedding day plans, see if I'm a good fit for the couple and if my style suits what they are after. From there, they book me if they wish - quite relaxed about it all; no need for drama!

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

It's a real pain to organise and not necessarily the most creative but the group shot as it documents everyone who attended and spent the big day with you. Priceless memory.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

For everyone to stick two fingers up at me during the group shot!?

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas and lots of back lighting to capture the rainfall - looks amazing!!

Describe how you got into photography.

I simply love making pictures. I fell in love with Art & Photography at college, studied it at Degree level - I'm lucky that I make a living from my passion!
