Photographing weddings is one of the best things in the whole wide world for me …. that and eating Percy Pigs. I’m pretty chilled to be around and adore spending all day with my couples, capturing the happiest day of their life as they celebrate with close family and friends. What could be better?!
My ideal couple? If they are in love, it doesn’t matter. From registry offices to barn blessings, I cover them all. I especially love photographing fun couples in natural light. I love to connect with my couples before hand so on the day itself, they completely relax and their photos totally show this. Every wedding I photograph is different and I pride myself in listening carefully to each of my couples so I provide a personal service. I have packages available from Bridal Prep thru to evening celebrations.
I’ve been around long enough to know when to be sociable and when to disappear into the background. I’ve never taken too long taking photos and work with your venue to make sure everything happens on time.
My aim is to capture photographs throughout your wedding day with minimal intrusion, blending natural, relaxed images seamlessly with traditional entourage and family shots (if you want them). My photography style has evolved greatly over the years and I am passionate about capturing every little detail of your day without being annoying of course!
The vast majority of my couples always tell me ‘I can’t remember you being there at all”. This sentence makes me smile. Big much.
The favourite bit of my wedding photography? Handing over albums to my couples and watching them smile, point and squeal as they look through their photos. It goes without saying I love my ‘job’.
Should you book me, I normally end up being so much more than your photographer on the day too; taking labels off things, hugs for anyone emotional, making sure the entourage eats before they leave for the ceremony, tying cravats, pinning on button holes (traditionally Ladies’ flowers go on the right did you know?) … just helping with the little things that I know will make your day go smoothly.
Here are some photos from my Pop Up Studio which we normally set up when your room is being turned around for your evening celebrations. Guests love dressing up with the props and available room of the Pop Up Studio.
I also own app called Jaunty Twig. Yes, it’s true! Jaunty Twig allows your guests to take and share photos on the app which are then projected/displayed LIVE at your wedding venue (after moderation). It provides a fantastic focal point at your evening celebration and you receive a complete copy of everything post wedding. There is also an optional Electronic Guestbook and Video Messages.
Here’s some photos shared by guests at a previous wedding.
I have a simple pricing structure and I’m more than happy to discuss alternatives if you have certain requirements for your photography, whether home or abroad. Please contact me for a price list. Multiple discount is available should you decide to book me for your wedding photography, Pop Up Studio and/or Jaunty Twig.
I highly recommend that we meet up for an initial, no-obligation chat to discuss your requirements regardless. I’m always happy to bring along one of my babies (aka as a Digital SLR Camera) for an impromptu couple shoot! The meeting will allow us to meet each other in person (very important in my book) and answer any questions you may have. I know that choosing and investing in a wedding photographer is a difficult decision and I hope I can provide you with valuable, unbiased advice towards making your choice.
