I am passionate about wedding photography and capturing couples day as it happens in a natural romantic way. I work full time as a wedding photographer and have done for almost 6 years. I have captured nearly 250 weddings all over England and Europe. I bring positive energy to any working environment. I have a very strong work ethic and feel it’s important to delivery high quality images that the couple will treasure forever.
Documentary, romantic, authentic moments from your wedding day. I am usually capturing moments without clients really noticing me, however, I will give direction for group photos and couple shots. I try make them as relaxed and fun as possible the wedding party enjoys them. My editing style is classic, bright, timeless – using mostly natural light. My images are punchy and represents true colour from your day. I am unique as I have so much more to offer than a photographer delivering images. I often end up being a big help in the day. Whether it’s running errands, calming the Bride, orchestrating certain parts of the day, I am able to multitask and still capture everything. Often couples tell me I ended up being a great friend to them. Weddings can be a rollercoaster of emotions and I seem to have a calming presence
Romantic, cinematic and timeless imagery edited with warm and earthy tones
All Canon prime gear. I have back up bodies and many lenses and flashes. Top of the range quality and full cover legal, public liability and equipment insurance.
90% colour, 10% B&W on average but couples can request more.
I have 3 packages. Breakdown and prices very clearly stated on my website. If they are having a wedding on an ‘off peak date’ I offer 15% off. Pre wedding shoots can be arranged.
It can be arranged.
4 weeks, often less, never more. My contract states 30 working days.
Its not uncommon for me to have weddings booked 2 years in advance. But usually a year at least is a good idea. I turn away many busy dates due to already being booked.
2 weeks before their big day I would email and request confirmed addresses, names for formal group photos (optional as I can organise this on the day if they don’t get round to doing it) + their basic itinerary for the day so I know timings. Balance would be due by the end of the wedding day as stated in my contract. Usually I take 50% deposit to secure the wedding date.
I have taken a conscious decision to not follow trends (like Instagram filter style for example). I like a lot of trends but I think it’s imperative to offer consistency in my style and not divert to trends as they change so often. I edit and deliver images that will be timeless when looking back in 20 years etc… (Eg, sepia was all the trend many years ago, now it looks horrid 😉 )
Tricky question, but top priority would be, ample experience with weddings to just photography, top equipment/backup/insurance, superior client references, an adaptable personality with lots of charisma. Big passion for their job.
