My photographs are about people. Expression, emotion, connection
Authentic Wedding Photography
The wedding day goes past in a blur. I want you to be able to relive the day, remember what happened and see all the little things that you missed. I want to do this with great photography. It’s what I call “Fine Art Photojournalism” it consists of a photojournalistic, documentary approach to the day. Unposed and with as little input as possible. Everything captured as it happened and framed to make it interesting, beautiful and timeless. On top of that I want to make creative and artistic portraits that capture your spirit and personality.
Be in the moment
My mantra is “Be in the moment.” Nothing awkward or corny just beautiful images that reflect your personality and your day. Working quickly. I don’t take hours on elaborate set ups. I don’t want to intrude on your wedding day.
I’m looking for expressions and connections between you and your guests. Like street photographers I am looking for the extraordinary in the ordinary. I have no set plan for the day, I just take it as it comes, going with the flow. When it comes to portraits I love to be involved, creating inspirational works of art. Working hard to ensure that you look natural.
I don’t set aside time for photographs. I’ll take time when we have the best light to make portraits. I’ll direct you to make it look natural, like you were just there, in the moment. No cheese, no corn, no awkward.
How I work on the day
- I generally arrive two hours before the ceremony. This gives plenty of time to get all the excitement of the prep. If you have stuff happening before that and want me to come earlier then let us know.
- If possible I’ll cover both of you getting ready. It’s easier to do that if there are two of us so consider adding an additional photographer.
- I’ll always find the registrar or priest and talk to them before the ceremony. They won’t always let me photograph it so bear that in mind. You will need to speak to them about it before the day so there are no surprises. I do have silent cameras
- After the ceremony your guests will want to congratulate you. I will let this happen and when it starts to die down I will start to organise the family groups. If it’s a church wedding I will wait until everyone arrives back to the venue. If there is someone on hand that knows who’s who and can gather them it will make the process much quicker
- At some point I will take you away to take some portraits. When this happens depends on you, on the flow of the day, on the weather and so on. There may be a few odd moments when I’ll grab you for something but I won’t keep you away from your guests for long
- If you want something creative and out of the ordinary let us know. Some people don’t want that and that’s fine too. Whatever you want just say. Whatever happens I will try and get the best light, whether we’re indoors or in a field. This might involve interrupting the meal to grab a sunset but I will check with you first
- If you think you look bad on camera, don’t worry. I don’t make you pose. Our instruction is very minimal. I have a few principals that will make everything look natural. No stopping and smiling for the camera just as it happens
- Sunsets move from breath taking to gone in about 10 minutes. If we’re going to grab the sunset we need to move fast – just so you know
For the dancing I’ll be on the floor with you and your guests. I’ll get in amongst it to get the best action photos
I am always striving to tell your story through gorgeous artistic imagery.
Incredibly passionate about the art, our unique style captures the dynamic energy of the wedding day while remaining unobtrusive throughout.
