I’m not ashamed to say that I really like capturing the little details that go towards making each wedding unique. From the shoes to the flowers to the food to what makes the venue special, the details for me are essential for telling the story of a wedding day and to not take them, to me, is missing out part of the story. Each and every detail has been pondered over by the bride & groom (actually mostly by the bride but there are few groom’s out there who try to show willing, kudos to you chaps!) so I try to ensure I get interesting images of these details. If I shot every pair of shoes the same way I’d get pretty bored and this job is about being creative & constantly looking to improve & see differently so I try to find new ways of photographing them.
OK, there’s only so many ways to photograph a pair of shoes and some people aren’t too fussed about it but I like to have a play around – sometimes I get a little over-enthusiastic when a bride presents me with her shoes & they are something different, no, I don’t have a shoe fetish (!) but a beautiful pair of shoes can certainly make the job easier when it comes to finding inspiration for an interesting shoe shot!
Below are a few examples of some of my favourite detail shots taken at various Norfolk weddings last year, each one has a story & will spark off memories of the wedding day for the couples which is why I always ensure the wedding details get plenty of coverage in an album – I see them as fleshing out the storytelling of a wedding day in the beautiful handmade Jorgensen wedding albums I use.
