It’s All About the Day…
Okay, you’re looking for some great wedding photography, visited lots of websites, looked at zillions of wedding pictures and then found me. Hopefully you like my pictures but before we go any further, there’s a few things I need to tell you…
Firstly I want you to know that I photograph things as and when they happen. I’m not the kind of photographer who wants to make the couple jump up and down, do daft things, or spend most of the day grinning like hyenas at the camera, so my approach to weddings is to make things as easy as possible and not to get in the way of the day. The best way to do this is by standing back and capturing the day as it unfolds, so I work quickly, quietly and as discreetly as possible, which allows YOU to get on with enjoying the day and ME to tell the story of your day – which is what I’m there to do.
I like clarity and simplicity, so for clarity I use professional cameras and lenses to capture your day, and besides their reliability, they give me the best image quality. For simplicity, I don’t use fancy effects or funky colours when editing your pictures. I want your pictures to look just as good in 20 years time as they do today, so during editing I keep things as simple as I can with natural colours. As I said – clarity and simplicity.
Who Do You Choose…?
Okay, you’ve decided on the date, the venue and maybe the dress, so your next decision is – the photographer – and who do you choose? Do you choose a friend, a part-timer or someone who’s just starting out – together with the worry and disappointment this could bring, or do you choose a full-time professional with a lifetime of experience photographing all kinds of weddings? Your wedding is unrepeatable, so it’s a massive decision and one that only you can make.
Its a photographers job to document the wedding day with timeless images so that the couple can re-live the day time and time again. This is what I do and what I’ve done for the hundreds of weddings I’ve photographed. Being a wedding photographer is also a massive responsibility, so it’s something I take seriously. Not only because its my job and my livelihood, but also because I understand and appreciate the trust that you will be placing in me to tell the story of your day, which I do in the best way I can – through my picture taking.
All Weddings Are Different
Over the years I’ve photographed enough weddings to appreciate that all weddings are different. They come in all shapes and sizes, in all kinds of weather and at all kinds of venues, which is why you need a photographer with experience – and not one who’s only good at photographing bouquet’s, shoes or wedding dresses. I have a bucket-full of experience, and with that experience comes an ability to think on my feet, especially when things don’t go entirely to plan, and for moments like that I always have a ‘Plan B’.
Whether it’s the weather, the cars, the flower girl, the venue or one of the many other things that get in the way of the day, I’m always ready for next picture. And, being the nice guy that I am, I’ve also helped groom’s with their ties, brides with their veil’s, and even got a wee bit misty eyed with a few of the Mum’s during some speeches – which is what most wedding photographers do.
So, how much…?
I suppose that’s the million dollar question… I know that all weddings are different, which depending on the size of your wedding, is why I have three price lists. All my packages include the digital files – as well as my commitment and of course my experience. I also offer albums with my portfolio’s, as I firmly believe that each couple should have the opportunity to cherish something tangible and unique for many years to come
