After 20 years of experience as a professional photographer I have learnt that every wedding is unique which makes my job so magical. My approach to every wedding is very much tailored to suit each couple. My style is contemporary reportage with a touch of traditional, I capture each part of the wedding as it unfolds from the bride and groom preparations at the start of the day, the ceremony and then the reception.
Pre wedding I always meet my couples, firstly to show them my book and then to go through in depth their wedding and expectations and to discuss any questions they may have and also to find out what type of images they would like, I will often suggest a pinterest board, it is a great way of ticking off all the wish list photos, we all have different tastes.
I always recommend that we start with the photography with the couple preparing for their wedding right through and a bit beyond the first dance, this way I can capture the whole wedding and tell the complete story in pictures.
I can offer photo books or albums, USB's, online gallery, and prints depending on what is required.
