HOW I WORK
I have photographed close to 100 weddings and I without doubt two are never the same. From big to small, vintage to opulent each one is different. I am very passionate about what I do and am never more happy than when I have a camera in my hand photographing a wedding. Capturing timeless images of your big day for your friends and family to enjoy. My experience allows you to be rest assured that come what may I have the tools to adapt to any given situation. I usually try to meet with my couples before the wedding date for either an informal chat or a pre wedding engagement shoot all part of the package of course. This gives us an opportunity to get familiar as well as talking about the finer details of the day. I always encourage input from the couples I meet and am happy to cater to any requests for specific shots… please ask as I never say no, Its your special day after all.
The Big day
My style of wedding photography is often described as Reportage or Documentary photography. I photograph in a mixture of both black and White and colour and present both of these options in the final edit. I generally arrive a few hours before the ceremony begins to source out interesting backdrops as well as taking some all important getting ready shots of the bride and groom.
I am a great lover of natural light and wherever I can this is the look and feel that I try to achieve. This also gives me the benefit of blending into the background without obtrusive flashes repeatedly going off. The ambience especially of early evening light I adore and feel it creates a warm ambience to the images.
In a nutshell natural moments are what I seek to capture in my wedding photography images. Except for Group shots I rarely ask your guests to pose for camera. My style is more fly on the wall, photographing real emotions as they naturally unfold. The best reportage wedding Photography is anticipating the best time to fire the shutter and being in the right place at the right time.
Editing the Photos
After the ceremony I am always very excited to see the images that I have taken. Within days I upload the files to Photoshop and get busy editing the images. Usually I photograph anywhere in the region of around 1500 images. I usually on average edit this down to around 350 images. These I individually post process in a software package called Lightroom. Within 3 weeks or so I have completed the edit. This I host on an online gallery which I send an access code to your email box. You can happily share this to friends and family to your hearts content as the copyright is yours. If you require a wedding book this service I also offer. I design all the books myself and are printed to a very high quality.
