Looking into suppliers and photographers can be a little overwhelming at times. There are so many of us out there with varying styles that all suit different couples. Hopefully, by now you might have glanced at enough of our work to understand a little more how we shoot weddings and what we're all about. However, I have created this page to give my couples a little more understanding of our approach to weddings and how we work on the day. Information that might help match the work with the style you fancy for your big day!
If you have to title and box in the style it would be natural, energetic and vibrant documentation. We still shoot group shots and we absolutely help to pose couples (when and if they need it) but predominately we shoot a wedding how I’d like our own to be shot. The images that resonate with us and our couples are usually those unique natural moments that happen when you invite all your loved ones into the same room for one fat off celebration – so we make those our priority. We believe my relaxed style works around most couples. The documentation approach allows the day to flow naturally, it allows you and your guests to be yourselves and it conserves even the smallest of details. It may sound obvious but, it is SO SO important to us that you guys enjoy every aspect of your day. You enjoy the canapés and have time with your loved ones without being dragged around for posed photos the entire day!
Full day coverage is a big thing for us in order for us to tell the whole story, give ourselves the best opportunity to capture as many as these lovely unique moments as possible and grab some lovely portraits of the two of you in the midst of all that. Time does not concern me and I am for yours for the day. I will arrive in good time before the ceremony and I will never leave just after the first dance – I love a good party and I love to get stuck into this integral part of the day! You can get some belting shots during this time and we'd never miss it! The full day coverage means that nothing is rushed. We don't have to squeeze all the photos within that small reception time, it means we can space those opportunities of couple and group shots across the day!
We re passionate about storytelling. We all love to stand back and scope out those little moments. We will always do our absolute best to capture your big day in its most authentic and relaxed way possible. We don’t like to over pose couples. We don’t like to completely take over your day. We have a bit of a laugh with it, staying away from feeling awkward and posed. Be yourselves. Being a couple in front of the camera can be forced and it can feel odd. Most couples will tell me they don’t enjoy having their photo taken. There is absolutely no pressure. We work around and support our couples with what they are comfortable with, encouraging personality to shine through. We've all been to weddings where you barely see the couple. We are not one to take our couples away for long and exhausting slots throughout the day – who wants that!? We usually do one 10 minute slot during the reception time and then another closer to sunset – simple!
Of course we still shoot group shots. Nothing over the top but for us they are still important. Standing in one spot for hours whilst you grab a staged photo with every third cousin is no ones idea of fun. However, we do insist on a FEW select group shots that usually don’t take any longer than 15 minutes. Collecting and documenting a full family together, a shot with grandparents and shots of the entire bride/groom parties are always images to treasure. Ultimately, we want you guys to enjoy that reception time with your family and friends, sink some canapés and have a bit of time for us to go off for a few couples portraits. Always remember, that I am with your family and friends for the entire day so if ANYONE wants a quick couple/group shot they can always ask – especially on the dancefloor!
Post first dance is one of the best times of the day for me. It’s often what the entire day leads up to and there is no way I’m going to skip off early to miss it. I capture some of my favourite frames during this period, being respectful but also getting up and close when the time is right. There are always so many fantastic and unique moments to capture on the dancefloor.
