STYLE & APPROACH

Somerset_weddinng_photograph-27

Even after twelve years, I continue to strive to keep my style fresh and creative, yet relaxed and unobtrusive. I am above all a storyteller, an observer of people, relationships, intimacy, capturing emotions, the love, the laughter and sometimes the tears. I want to capture your day with minimum interruption and provide a story which has timeless appeal. Although I adopt a documentary approach, if you want posed photographs I am happy to direct the bridal party, but I will always look for new and interesting ways to make your images stand out from the crowd. For years I always felt wedding photography had been limited to stiff poses without much regard for the underlying story, emotion, romance, and behind-the-scene events of the day itself. However, over the years weddings have changed and become more relaxed and intimate. Couples now incorporate their personalities and passions into their wedding style, opting for a more contemporary approach to their big day and this is why I became a wedding photographer. I believe it is my job to capture and express your love in photographs which are completely unique to you.

EVERY LOVE STORY IS UNIQUE

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY YOUR WAY

HOW I WORK | MY APPROACH

For me, it is essential that your photographs have integrity so I will not put you into any unnatural poses or try to create moments that are not there. A wedding is not about posing for group shots for hours on end. Or photographers overtaking the day. It’s about capturing the important shots efficiently and then following the light, the moments and the real story with just a pinch of traditional portraits for good measure. I like to ensure the atmosphere remains true to the day and love the variety of light the UK weather can determine. Rest assured come rain or sunshine as your photographer, I will provide beautiful photography no matter the weather. A story which has timeless appeal yet relaxed and unobtrusive. Spontaneity is what I believe makes a great photograph; with the right photographer at hand, you won’t even know the beautiful moments I am capturing. If I am lucky enough to shoot your wedding I will cover detailed shots of the decor and photographs of the couple getting ready, through to candid documentary images of the day unfolding and couple portraits with a relaxed vibe where you can enjoy time together. I love getting involved in the action with your guests to ensure I get the moments you may miss and the speeches is the perfect time to see why everyone in the room adores you as a couple. The emotion of the speeches gets me every time! I will also be there on the dance floor  and after party so that every aspect of your story in covered.

WHY IS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IMPORTANT?

“I bring the same attention to detail to the photographing of your wedding as you do in the planning”

Actually, the most important thing on the day is the two of you and your happiness. This is why it’s so important to choose a wedding photographer who takes the time to properly understand and act on your wishes, and who can capture that happiness so you can share it with your loved ones for generations to come. Your wedding photography becomes an integral part of your journey. It captures the real moments of your wedding day; the celebration, the love, the laughter and sometimes the tears. Although I have photographed hundreds of weddings to date, I truly believe every wedding is one-of-a-kind.

I have been a bride myself, so I know how you are feeling. I know it’s crucial that your wishes are listened to and respected – whatever they are. If you are anything like me, you have already spent hours thinking about all the little details! I endeavour to bring the same attention to detail to the photographing of your wedding as you do in the planning of it. I am passionate about taking photographs that lock the emotion in. So, when you view them, you can really feel them too. Wedding photography documents your memories which one day will be a family heirloom. It only increases in value over time.
