I am always looking for interesting compositions for my photographs, I like to use shadows, reflections, motion, sequences, patterns, unusual angles and interesting lighting to achieve ‘the look’. My unique recipe of post-processing ensures crisp, rich and interesting images every time.
When I photograph a wedding my aim is to document the day from start to finish, to provide a complete record from preparations through to the first dance, photographing not only the main events but also the little details that complete the story.
The majority of my day at a wedding is spent capturing events as they happen, some call this photojournalistic or reportage photography; it’s about standing back and observing, not controlling. Other parts of the day do involve some direction this may be for a few elegant bridal/groom shots at the start of the day and again for a few minutes at the reception with just the couple.
Immediate family group shots generally take no longer than 10-15 minutes if required and I avoid going into the vast and complex aunt/uncle/cousin combinations – one aerial group shot of all guests can cover extended family with minimum time and fuss!
I limit the number of weddings I shoot each year to ensure an exclusive boutique style service, I don’t use assistants or second shooters and I personally undertake all image processing and album design to ensure I can guarantee a personal, bespoke service.
