Capturing Your Big Day
Every wedding is unique, with its schedule, its details and the way it unfolds. However, there are usually familiar key elements which I have used below to illustrate what and how I will be photographing your wedding day. My style is largely reportage, capturing the natural moments as they happen, but I can also gently guide you through some relaxed yet editorial portraits so that you have the best of both approaches and a greater variety of images in your finished collection – some beautiful art for the wall, some emotional memories for an album, some great moments for sharing online… whatever you might like to do with the images in years to come.
Prior to the wedding, we’ll confirm the key events and timings of your plans but it might look something like this…
I’ll first join you during the bridal preparations, capturing the emotion and magic of that getting ready process.
I'll create artistic images of the dress, accessories and flowers, all those things that make your day unique.
Let's discuss adding a second shooter to capture your partner getting ready to tell the other half of the story!
There is so much story in the details. Your choices reflect who you are and I want to capture those elements for you.
Here, I'll capture the bride's arrival, walking down the aisle, the exchange of rings and vows and register signing.
The moment you see each other, that little look, the confetti... the moments of your first day as a married couple.
If you'd like some posed groupings, formal or otherwise, then we can be as traditional or as creative as you like!
If you have enjoyed planning your day, you'll love to have photos that remind you of your styling elements!
With some time alone, we can create editorial yet natural portraits that portray you together at your very best.
Your day from your perspective. Want me to travel with you or join in an activity for a different view, just ask!
Your venue was a big decision in your planning, so I'll pick out features to capture the spirit of the location.
Whatever your theme or colour scheme, the details make the day unique to you.
I'll photograph all that time, energy and creative skill that goes into making your day your own.
I'll photograph events and styling during the reception including the decor, food and speeches as well as many candids.
I'll focus on the emotions of you and your guests to really capture not just how your day looks, but how it feels.
I'll be watching out for the selfies, the joking around, the funny things kids do and everything that adds humour!
Throughout the day, I'll be watching for those little moments you'll be too busy to see. You'll love to look back.
I'll capture the telltale signs of the love and affection of your guests and all the lovely, happy interactions!
If there are going to be children at your wedding, you can be sure I'll photograph their fun too!
What makes your wedding unique to you? You can be sure I'll capture those things for you to enjoy time and time again.
I'll recreate the romance and enjoyment of the 'first dance' as a married couple at your evening reception in images.
A wedding to celebrate your love, captured in images forever... ah, the romance!
