Oh how exciting, you’ve booked your date and are now looking for a photographer to capture your special day – Who on earth do you Choose?
It’s a tough decision, there are so many fantastic wedding photographers and how do you know you’re going to get the “right” one? Well for starters, the best pointer I can give you is choose someone you LIKE! Yes, weird huh? What’s liking a photographer got to do with anything? Well, as the only person on your big day who gets to see 100% of what’s happening, that means that your photographer is going to be spending a lot of time with you – hence, it really helps your day be totally amazing if you like them!
The second most important part of choosing a wedding photographer is to find out whether they offer the service and photographs you are looking for! Do you like the images on their website? Can you picture yourself in those images? I start the process by chatting through exactly what it is you want from your wedding photographer, the style of photographs you are looking for (gorgeously naturally posed photos of the bride and groom, candid images, formal group shots or a little of everything) and the type of wedding you are having, from a small and intimate wedding to a lavish and indulgent wedding and everything inbetween, I want to know exactly what you’re looking for so I can ensure I not only capture what you’re looking for but also exceed your expectations by delivering top quality images with a top quality service.
Quite simply, I want my brides and grooms to be absolutely delighted with their wedding photographer choice, from the firs time we meet right the way through your planning and preparation to the big day itself and afterwards showing you your images and if you’re having a wedding album, choosing the images with you so you end up with a wedding album you absolutely love and one that can be an heirloom to you and your future generations.
My style of photography
I’m a Fine Art, natural light photographer which means I’m not going to use flash which can be distracting wherever possible. It also means that I understand natural light and the best times and places to photograph your gorgeous bride and groom portraits and will go over and above the call of duty to get the images you dreamed of, not just for your album, but to hang on your walls too as fabulous pieces of art!
When it comes to the candid images I not only capture special moments as they happen but will also interact with your guests to make sure absolutely everyone is looking their best!
My understanding of your needs
It’s really important to me to make sure we’re the right fit. I want to completely understand what you’re looking for and what makes you tick – this is the most important day of your life so I work hard on the run up to the big day to make sure you are confident and comfortable around me.
It doesn’t mean we have to meet gazillions of times, but if you can spare the time it’s great if we can get together to do your pre wedding shoot, visit your venue together and plan your day schedule together. If you can’t spare the time don’t worry, I can get all that info in one meeting but it’s lots more fun spreading the meets out over the run up to your big day!
My quality service
I really believe in going above and beyond to make sure every part of your dream day is exactly that, from your Pre Wedding Shoot so you can get comfortable in front of the camera before the big day through to making sure all your guests are enjoying themselves (don’t just take my word for it, have a look what my previous couples have to say) and especially the images I’ll make so you can remember everything in detail forever.
I offer absolutely stunning wedding album choices, all crafted in the UK by top album makers and beautiful framed prints and canvas pieces to hang on the wall if that’s your thing.
Every step of your journey I’m happy to answer any questions and help in anyway I can, I’m so much more than a wedding photographer, (so much so I am thinking about writing a book – 101 things I’ve done on a wedding day that doesn’t include my camera!) I am someone you can rely on, have fun with and am someone you’ll be glad to have chosen to capture every special moment of your big day.
