Oh how I LOVE a wedding!
A day that is so full of love and happiness that it is a pure joy to be a part of.
I am a lifestyle photographer. I aim to have natural posed images and completely candid photos too. I think it’s so important on a wedding day to have a variety of photos. To me, this best captures the overall feel of the day. I send my couples a shot list before the wedding day, with a few suggested group shots. I tend to advise to stick to around 10 group photos, as this can really cut in to time that could be spent chatting with your guests.
I use natural light wherever possible, and that is how my images look so fresh and airy. Of course I use flash too, but this is more for on the dance floor & dark ceremony rooms.
My aim on the day is to be upbeat, approachable and present at all times. I like to think of myself as a bit of a chameleon, as one minute I can be arranging big group photos, to just speaking one on one with guests and bride & groom, to being completely in stealth mode, taking images that no one even notices.
I like to be a part of the day, and not just the photographer. No fake smiles or pretences required!
