Full Description
Why me? A good documentary wedding photographer has to be an amazing story teller. I like to connect with you and understand a bit about you both so I know what the personalities are. That way I can tell your story creatively and honestly and have a few laughs along the way. I'm meticulous in my approach to a wedding, I always recce the venue beforehand if possible and note down particular interests including what happens if it rains. My work ethics I love what I do, I struggle to call it work as I enjoy it so much. I'm a person that likes to go into detail from making sure all paperwork is squared away to actually spending time at the venue a few weeks in advance and getting to know the layout of the place. I believe in equipping myself with as much info on the venue and layout as possible as it makes a huge difference on the day, and when it rains it can change things very quickly so having a few umbrellas on hand is just one of the small details I cover. What do i offer? Depending on what package you select or extras, you will receive a selection of images within 48hrs after the wedding that you can download from your private online gallery already optimized for social media as I understand your excitement at wanting to share some images from your big day. I continue to upload images as I work my way through and include a few Facebook templates you can use and share to showoff your wedding in style. USB and presentation box comes engraved with your names and date of wedding and any albums etc are supplied within 4 - 6 weeks after wedding day. Prints, canvases etc can be supplied within a few days notice and you can select images for these online. I offer 10% discount on all my photographic services to current and past members of the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force including emergency services and NHS. Just mention when enquiring. Fully qualified Makeup Artist who works with us is included in select wedding packages at no extra cost.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Shaun
Wedding photography should be considered an art, this is something I truly believe in. As the photographer at your wedding, I believe I should be everywhere throughout the day without being seen or even being felt. I like to have an invisible presence while capturing the moments of your special day. I look forward to hearing from you.

Shaun was brilliant on our wedding day. The process of booking all the way to delivering photos was so easy. We were over the moon with our images and highly recommend him to anyone looking a stress free day.

Described his style as blending in amongst the guests, he certainly did that
We were looking a photographer to capture our wedding in a natural way. We did not want posed photographs or the typical images you see at weddings. Shaun did an amazing job and he described his style as blending in amongst the guests, he certainly did that. The ability to pay our package off with instalments was great and made things much easier. Thanks again Shaun

Best day of my life!
After meeting Shaun and discussing what we were looking for and a few ideas we had, Shaun let us know what would work and what we could add to those ideas including if the weather changed fir our outdoor photographs. We paid deposit at ene if meeting via card and everything was in order. We ordered USB package and received a beautiful engraved box and a selection of prints with matching USB inside. It brought a tear to my eye it was beautiful and I couldn't help but share it on social media. The most impressive thing and something that made Shaun stand out to us was the fact we received a link the morning after wedding with images we could share on social media that morning. Nobody else offered this and it's these small details and that little extra Shaun offered that secured it for us. I can highly recommend Shaun for his professional approach and ability to deliver exactly what he promises. He is the first name I give to anybody who mentions to me they are planning a wedding. We can not thank or speak highly enough of Shaun.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

Be yourself, identify what style you want and trust your photographer to do what he does best. Don't prepare for the photographer we are prepared for you.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

I have had images published by some of the bigger brand names including rental companies and have had various images of Game Of Thrones locations published.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I recommend clear umbrellas , possibly wellies if it's an outdoor shoot. Lot's of potential to a rainy wedding and gives the photographer a chance to get creative.

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

I got into photography in a previous work environment, capturing sights only few others would have access to. I moved onto portrait photography and landscape photography. Wedding photography came later and i fell in love with it.

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

Reportage Documentary Quirky Fun Natural

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Group photos, majority of weddings want them and it's not a problem but i like to mix up the standing order and place them in a way to make it interesting instead of the usual in a line photo that lacks character.

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

I see this more as in individual thing, every couple has their ideas and vision of what they want. Some love a natural photo, while others love a good formal photo.

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

Introduction followed by a consultation for us to find out a little more about each other. I like hearing about the story so I can tell yours as true and accurate as possible on the day. Booking takes place followed by signed contract and date for pre-wedding shoot and any other requirements. I stay in contact along the way.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

I have seen buttons with the date on them which was a classy touch and home made mini barrels with Guinness in them.

Describe how you got into photography.

Would have to be my sisters wedding, it was no set style more a mixture of everything including Irish Dancing etc; It has to be one of the most unique weddings to date.
