I know that photography is more than just a way of recording the ways you made your day amazing; it is one of the ways you make it amazing. For most of us, our wedding is probably the biggest and certainly one of the best parties we will ever throw. It’s a hugely important day for serious reasons as well, of course, but even then the wedding is about celebrating those reasons. You will have put loads of effort and resources into creating this day of celebration & I am honoured by each and every one of you that entrusts me with the job of documenting it for you. When wedding day comes, I want you to be able to just focus on each other, not on worrying about the photographer. Thus I will work with you beforehand & do my best to make sure you feel comfortable in front of my camera. I will be sure that I spend time getting to know your personality & your preferences, so that they will be reflected in pictures that tell the story of you – as you envisioned it.
If what you want from your wedding photos are fierce, fresh, fun images that are an alternative to the stuffy & the frilly – an eclectic mix of vibrant fashion-editorial, relaxed contemporary lifestyle portraiture, humour, romance & reportage – that memorialise this fabulous party of which you & your partner are the centre, & you’re not afraid to get a little silly & to laugh with each other at my dumb jokes & whatever else the day throws your way, then we will be a good match.
On your wedding day, even though I’ll be the one vendor that’s there with you from start to finish, the one who finds an extra safety pin when you need it, the one who sees the anticipation on both of your faces right before the ceremony, along with the tears in the morning and the laughter in the evening, you won’t always see me. I’ll be front and centre when you need me to be – organising and herding cats for the group portraits – & the photo ninja in the shadows when you don’t. Sometimes clients look at an image & say, “I didn’t even know you were there.” Which is as it should be. I was, the moment was captured, & that’s what matters.
