Wedding Photographer – it’s high up on your to do list. How do you know I’m the right fit for you? It’s important to know what you can expect from me both as a professional wedding photographer and as a person. Your wedding day is the culmination of planning from choosing the wedding dress, to the favours on the tables. Shared with your closest family and friends. By the time I arrive at your wedding, you will feel an old friend has arrived to take capture the moments of your day.
To help, here’s everything you need to know about my approach – of course, if you have any further questions, just ask!
01. It’s About You & …
Your wedding day; you are surrounded by your amazing family and friends, gathered from all corners of the world. I focus my attention on capturing the genuine and true moments.
Based on experience with my previous couples, our interactions will be fun and full of laughter – from the first meeting (whether it’s over coffee or something a little stronger) to the day itself (which I know I’m lucky to be a part of) to the joyful hand-over of your wedding album.
Incidentally, I think receiving your wedding album is a glorious moment, not to mention the perfect antidote for post-wedding blues. If you need more reasons as to why you should make a wedding album please read this.
02. A Record of Your Emotions
My photos capture moments in time. Weddings can be emotional roller coasters (good ones!). I aim to capture your feelings – from the pre-ceremony butterflies and thrill of being pronounced as being married, to the delight at the best man’s speech and romance of your first dance – so you can re-live these emotions again and again.
03. I’m a Moment Catcher
I have an expert eye for capturing the spontaneous moments – raw, undocumented and unscripted. From the joyous, unbridled laughter to the bitter-sweet smiles as you remember those who couldn’t attend. These ‘in-between’ moments narrate your story, beautifully and uniquely.
04. Unobtrusive Storytelling
With so much going on, it’s hard to see the ‘big picture’ of your day. That’s my job. I inconspicuously collect the reactions, gestures, and interactions you don’t see – the nervous groom waiting, the proud father seeing his daughter in her wedding attire for the first time – so you get the complete story.
05. Capturing Moments Creatively
As well as an emotional chronicle of events, I strive to create original, creative photos that take your wedding photos to a whole new level. It may be the composition, the atmosphere, the lighting – or all three – but these high-impact photos are reminiscent of editorial images in glossy magazines.
06. Relaxed & Fun Portraits
With all the excitement and congratulatory hugs and smiles from your guests after the wedding ceremony, it might be nice to get away and enjoy a moment together. In this time, we can (if you’d like them) create some fun, creative and relaxed portraits of you both.
07. Seamless Experience
As an experienced wedding photographer in Surrey and London, I deliver a seamless service from start to finish. As well as taking care of your wedding photography with the utmost professionalism, I’m also a dab hand at fixing button holes and have plenty of wedding planning tips up my sleeve. If you need anything, just ask.
08. Fun, Fun, Fun
Weddings are a heady mix of emotions but above all they are fun – from the detail planning to the very last kiss of the night. I aim to make your wedding photography as enjoyable as possible.
09. Formal Photos
Your wedding is likely to bring lots of important family members together. If you’d like specific formal group shots let me know. It’s important to remember that while I’m taking formal group shots I will miss moments happening elsewhere, so I always advise keeping them to a minimum. To save time, it’s also a good idea to have one or more close relatives/friends to gather the guests needed.
10. The Details
You may not see details elsewhere on my website – you’ve spent time preparing the details to make your wedding unique – which is why I spend time capturing these important elements too.
