Your wedding day will be one of the most amazing and unforgettable days of your life and there's so much to take in that it tends to fly past! Great wedding photos capture the love, laughter and the moments you miss, so it's important to have meaningful reminder of the day to look back on and feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
My approach is simple; capture as many fun, touching and emotional images of your day in a relaxed, informal way to give you the most enjoyable experience possible. There are so many things to worry about on your big day, your photographer won't be one of them!
Included in the cost of the wedding package is a pre-wedding photoshoot, which is the perfect opportunity for us to get to know each other in a relaxed setting and to show how I work. It's also so you can see there's really nothing to worry about! They look a bit like this.
While the girls grab the bubbles and don their wedding outfits and bridal gown, the excitement builds as the lads get themselves suited and booted. I like to capture the emotion as the morning of the wedding day goes on and the little moments of elation and contemplation. Any activities in the morning can be captured such as clay pigeon shooting or a round of golf.
It's the big event and why we all got dressed up in the first place! Moments of peaceful reflection and when the bride and groom share their first kiss! Also the perfect opportunity for some emotional pictures, which go a bit like this:
//FAMILY & GROUPS SHOTS
After the ceremony, once everyone has had a chance to have a few drinks and canapés, it's a great opportunity to get some group shots with both families. It's also the perfect time to create some memorable shots with the bridal party.
Take a few moments away from the guests to create some images such as these...
The speeches can be the highlight of the day for some people. Expect tears, laughter, love and great pictures!
Once the meal is done and dusted and the evening approaches, it's time for the first dance, which can be emotional, intimate or completely over the top and hilarious. Then it's time for everyone hit the dancefloor to cut some shapes. Another brilliant opportunity to capture moments of joy and laughter.
//EXTRAS / PHOTOBOOTHS
With the evening underway and everyone suitably oiled, a popular option to go for is the pop up photobooth, where fun, frivolity and general sillyness are encouraged! These make for great keepsakes and always raise and smile from everyone involved.
