CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT!
I'm delighted to say that I am available on your wedding date and I'm so glad that you love my style of wedding photography! As a documentary wedding photographer my goal is simple... to produce a beautiful, authentic & timeless story of your wedding day.
Many photographers will tell you that they shoot in a documentary style yet very few actually do. I won't manipulate or direct any scene, so everything that happens during your wedding day will be completely real and un-orchestrated.
I will of course shoot some immediate family group shots and couple portraits but the majority of your wedding day will be captured candidly and unposed.
I'm a Full-Time Wedding Photographer and an active award-winning member of Fearless Wedding Photographers. Fearless accepts only the best wedding photographers in the world and I am currently ranked as one of the top 50 Fearless wedding photographers in the UK.
I'm also an active member of the Wedding Photojournalism Association and the Guild of Photographers.
Being a full time wedding photographer means that my soul focus is on you and your wedding day. There really are no distractions and because wedding photography is my life, I have invested heavily in professional equipment and back up equipment so that you have peace of mind that if things do go wonky, which they sometimes do, then I am covered.
I always shoot with two cameras and both cameras record to dual card slots. When I arrive home after your wedding, both cards are removed from my cameras, one card is backed up (twice) and the other card is stored safely until your wedding is edited and delivered.
I have a network of wedding photographer friends who I use as second photographers if required. They are all capable of leading a full wedding on their own.
WHAT IS DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
Candid Unposed Documentary Wedding Photography is the art of candidly capturing the emotion of your wedding without interrupting the natural flow of your day. This gives you the freedom to enjoy yourselves without any photographer pressure and results in beautiful authentic images. Documentary Photography is documenting real life. As it happens. With no interruptions.
Documentary photography is perfect for couples who don't want to pose and who would prefer to enjoy the day with family and friends than standing in line after line, posing for hours. A true documentary wedding photographer is your eyes and ears from start to finish, documenting all the little details that you've dreamt about and spent so much time perfecting, then anticipating the millions of tiny (and huge) moments and capturing them as they build and then crescendo into beautiful images.
To make things simple I have one package, with options available to add on if you wish.
