In a lot of ways, I’m like a bridesmaid.
Okay, I don’t wear a dress to the wedding, and I probably won’t cry during the ceremony (although it has been known for even the most manliest of photographers to ‘suddenly’ find something in their eye). Aside from the bridal party, though, I’m one of the only other people to be at your Wedding from start to finish. I just don’t get to start my day on Prosecco and finish it wondering where my shoes are. Well, not often.
To me, it’s almost as important that you get along with your wedding photographer as the pictures themselves. You need to be able to relax and feel comfortable so I can capture your day as it naturally unfolds. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect us to be BFF’s and meet up for a pint once a week afterwards, but it definitely helps if you can be yourself around me.
It fits my style of photography, too. I’m not a fan of the overly posed, obviously faked photographs. I don’t think I’ve been to a single wedding yet where the groom and his groomsmen have decided on a whim to jump down some steps whilst fist pumping the air. I like candid, natural wedding photography. Less ‘smile for the camera’, and more a picture that tells a story.
If you’re interested and want to find out more, just drop me a message. We can arrange to meet up for a coffee and have a chat about your wedding plans, and you won’t have to worry about any of that hard sales nonsense. I think it’s best to find out if you can put up with me for a whole day, first!
