Experienced Hastings based Wedding Photographer, available for work in the East Sussex area, including Battle, Bexhill, Eastbourne, Rye. Im available for all weddings, civil partnerships, blessings, engagements, and other events too. I like to combine beautiful, striking portraits of the bride and groom, and their guests, with candid, natural shots too, showing the guests chatting and laughing, these can be more interesting than the posed shots, as well as close ups of details such as flowers, rings, the food etc, so that everything is captured, creating a picture of the entire event from start to finish.
I always have a meeting with the clients before any booking, to discuss their ideas and requirements, to show them more of my work, to help them decide if they want to go ahead and book my services. If they do, then another meeting, nearer the wedding date, is arranged to go through the schedule and work out finer details, group shots, time table etc. And ideally I will visit the venue to work out the best places for certain shots. On the day Im happy to cover all aspects of the wedding, and I will take 1,500 - 2,000 shots.
After the wedding, Im happy to do retouching work on PhotoShop on up to six of the couples favourite images, at no extra charge. 350 - 450 of the best images will be chosen to give the Bride and Groom, delivered on disc or USB stick.
Prices from £495.
I have been a keen photographer since i was about ten years old, and been taking photos all my life. But until recently, my work has been based in London and focused on moving images, as a film-maker, making short films and music videos. I recently moved back to my home town of Hastings to focus on photography full time and turn my passion into my business. In all my work I try to combine beauty and style with realism, I prefer natural lighting, but my work in film has given me a great understanding of lighting techniques, which allows me to create stunning and evocative portraits.
