It’s your day, no one elses.
Stories, stories, stories. Natural actions, natural emotions. A documentary of your day as it happened. Don’t worry about feeling uncomfortable, I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve to relax even the most camera shy :)
I’ve been called a photography ninja (which I rather like!) but I’m not someone to whack on a long lens and stay in the shadows. I’m basically like another guest but the one who is there to make sure you have the most amazing memories captured forever.
A week or so before the wedding, we’ll go through all the specifics. I like to be there early on the day, documenting all the little snippets and all the bustle of the morning prep (one of my most favourite bits of our wedding!!) and you’ll catch me getting in the thick come the night time entertainment ( I love to see what shapes get thrown!). I don’t set times to pack up, but there will just come a point that feels right.
We’ll definitely do some groups shots, it’s just about finding that right balance so you can make the most your day but still have those shots for Nan :)
I want you to walk away with memories of those little things. That quick look, that deep breath, that tight hand hold. It’s all those little things that are gone in a flash. When you see your images, I want you to laugh a little and cry a little … and ideally, at the same time.
I’m proud to say that I’m happily low maintenance! Plans will change, the weather will change, things will just happen and there is a part of me that absolutely loves that. I spent 6yrs photographing in a very busy portrait studio and learnt the invaluable skill of thinking on my feet, so I’m pretty unfazeable! Everyone and everything is unique and so your images must reflect your own story and being able to find that in a ‘moment’ is what makes the job so wonderful! The biggest compliment I get, is when a couple say, ‘that is so us’. lovely.
