So you want to talk dollar bills...

Yep, we’re on to the fun stuff here. The big “how much is he going to charge for pressing a few buttons?” question.

I honestly believe photography is the second most important part of your day, sitting ever-so-slightly behind the person you’re marrying! You’re entrusting someone to take full responsibility for capturing the lasting story of your day that can be shared with current and future generations (it’s a bit scary when you think of it like that).

It’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly, and a service you want upmost confidence in booking. I take huge pride in getting to know all of my couples and their story, and love to meet up for a coffee – whatever stage of ‘finding a photographer’ you are at.

The Prep

A key part to how I capture weddings is the preparations we do on the run up to your day. Once you’ve got everything planned, we run through a few highly detailed questionnaires, covering all topics such as; locations, timings, group photographs, things of meaning, and a whole lot more.

By going into this level of detail, it means I’m seriously prepared to tell your wedding story, and leave no stone unturned.

It also ensures I’ve got a full running order of the day without needing to pester you, meaning we can take a really relaxed and fun approach to the day itself.

The Approach

My approach would be best described as “Guided Reportage” coverage – focussing on the story of the day ‘as it happens’, and capturing those little moments that simply cannot be replicated. Thanks to some rather magically silent cameras, you won’t even know your picture is being taken for most of the day.

I throw the forced unnatural posing you’d typically expect with wedding photography well and truly out the window, and instead work to spark real emotion. At no point do things feel like a photoshoot, and you’ll never need to pull a fake smile – we make things as enjoyable as wedding photography can be.

By taking this fun & relaxed approach, it gives you both the opportunity to properly enjoy your day and be “you” in front of the camera. Real couples, showing real emotion, having an absolute blast of a wedding – it’s surely the best way to document your day.
