How are you different from other wedding photographers?
I have been a professional photographer since the age of 16 so I have over 30 years experience and expertise. I am also one of the UK's most published and commissioned magazine photographers which gives me a great edge over other styles of wedding photography and is the prime reason your wedding photographs will be so outstanding!
My experience and expertise is in telling your story through images and capturing all the
magic of your day and then blending these photographs with a set of striking, fashionable
images from your bride and groom session and whatever group photographs you may like.
What will your style do for us?
Whilst you concentrate on enjoying your wedding to the full I will let your day unfold naturally and photograph it in a relaxed, natural way and for the most part quite unobtrusively. This gives you a true representation of your wedding day and a better set of photographs. To quote Photo Professional magazine (the leading journal for Professional Photographers); “A wedding should be photographed without interference from the photographer. Once a photographer starts to interfere and take control it becomes the photographers idea of what the day should look like rather than what it actually is. Whilst this approach suits only the most experienced and skilled photographers it produces the most memorable and outstanding photographs."
We don't really like being photographed!
Then I am probably the perfect photographer for you. Please click the link below and I will explain why:
How many group photos will you take for us?
As many as you’d like me to. I do not place any limits on how many I’ll take but I’ll have them all done in around twenty minutes (for comparison purposes I have catered for over 20 group requests at many weddings yet still cover them in 20 mins, most photographers state they will do a max of 8 and it will take them half an hour).
How come you are much quicker than everyone else?
It’s a skill developed from doing so many magazine shoots with tight time restrictions. On a wedding day the advantage with working quickly and smoothly is that it allows everyone to stay looking relaxed and natural in the photographs (most people start to look nervous and rigid if a photographer takes too long) and also enables you to spend more time enjoying the day with your guests.
How do we book you?
We will discuss your wedding and work out the best package for you (or you may already know what you want). You then sign a contract and pay a £150 booking fee to secure your date. Your balance is payable 28 days before the wedding.
Will it definitely be you who turns up on our day?
Yes! I do not sub-contract or entrust your wedding into the hands of anyone else.
"We can't thank you enough for our stunning wedding photos! When we first met you the quality of your work just jumped out from all the other photographers we'd looked at so we knew we were in the best hands! Our photos and our album are just out of this world! Thank you again!" - Gail and Robin
