I am a Full Time Professional Photographer with over 25 years experience in photographing weddings. I have a passion for Photography and realise taking photographs of your special day is a huge responsibility. I try to make it a fun and enjoyable day. This involves skill experience and experience. Every wedding is different and I know when to be in control and when to let things flow. You can be certain that all the emotion and tradition of your big day will be captured in a series of natural beautiful images. I am a firm believer that you can never prepare enough. .
I always take pre Wedding photographs of the couple some 2 weeks prior to the wedding to run through some of the many Wedding poses. I will also attend the Wedding practice if the Wedding is a church wedding a so that I can meet the extended family and liaise with the vicar to ensure I am in the best position to take the best photographs.
Once the main formal wedding photographs have been taken I then like to do a series of Photographs with just the bride and groom present. This gives a more relaxed atmosphere and I am then able to create that “special photographic Image of the newly weds
After the reception and speeches. I upload all the digital images to my laptop and am then in a position to invite the Bride and Groom to view the Photographs taken some hours earlier.
I also include 1 hour photography at the evening reception in order that a photographic record can be made of the couple with friends who were not at the Wedding Service.
I spend about 1 week working on the images to bring out then best in them and to bring the images to life. A DVD is then produced which shows all images as a slide show set to music. . An A4 size first edition print book is also made which shows a small thumbnail of each numbered image.
All the images are posted in your own gallery online were you and your friends can view them.
I usually say to the couple that I have the easy task taking the photographs the couple have the hard task picking 70 images to go in their designer wedding album out of about 700 images
Once the couple have agreed on the chosen image I then design the album layout. I will assist you in selecting the images that work well together. It does not matter how many page alteration are made as I want the finished album to be something that you will treasure.
