Being a photojournalist at heart my approach is best described as lifestyle meets journalism. I believe in letting the moments unfold naturally and use available light, creative compositions and perspectives whenever possible. To capture your wedding story in the most honest and natural way, I work around you and I take great care in capturing the genuine emotions, the love, laughter and real stories.
We normally also take a little time out to create some relaxed and natural portraits of the two of you and your bridal party. Again, I prefer to use natural light to create dynamic photographs that reflect your personalities while you’re having fun and being yourselves.
My main priority is to make you all feel relaxed, natural and at ease, which is why I work in a discrete and subtle way, leaving the atmosphere of your wedding undisturbed while telling your story with love, respect and care.
I am passionate about telling the complete story of your wedding day and this is why I do not restrict myself to only shooting during set hours. I love to capture all those defining moments that mean so much, as well as the out-of-the-ordinary and unplanned, from the excitement of getting ready until the hazy hours on the dance floor.
The hours of detailed planning before your wedding is equally unrestricted as is the time spend hand editing and retouching your photographs, one at a time, after your big day.
Taking on a limited number of weddings ensures each and every wedding is truly special and it allows me to feel completely fresh and full of creative motivation. I can genuinely share the excitement and emotion while giving you personalised attention every step of the way.
WORKING WITH ME
OUR FIRST INFORMAL MEETING BEFORE YOU BOOK –
We can set up a time to skype, talk on the phone or meet up in person. We talk about what you imagine your wedding day will be like, all your plans and what makes you tick. I can tell you a bit more about me and you can have a look at my portfolio and see if we might be a good match.
PRE-WEDDING MEETING –
Detailed preparation lies ahead of every wedding and the pre-wedding meeting plays an important part. A few weeks before your wedding day we’ll visit your ceremony and reception venue and go over your final wedding day details. We will also explore different locations and take test photographs while getting to know each other better. I can offer photographic insight into how we create relaxed and beautiful natural portraits and if you feel a little unsure in front of the camera I can help and guide you to feel completely natural and at ease. Taking test photographs and being well prepared also saves us a lot of time on your wedding day.
UNLIMITED WEDDING DAY COVERAGE –
To create the complete story of your wedding day I do not restrict the hours I work.
A PRIVATE ONLINE GALLERY –
a perfect easy way to view and share your photographs with friends and family.
EDITED FULL RESOLUTION FILES –
including rights to print and share.
BEHIND THE SCENES –
Every photograph you receive is hand edited one by one, and and lovingly enhanced by having colour grading, exposure correction as well as high end skin retouching on close-ups to make them stand out.
I take great care in creating designs that are fresh and clean to let the images speak for themselves. All albums are individually designed and have a dynamic narrative structure with photographs that are vibrant and crisp for maximum impact. The design is always proofed by you before going off to print. Storybook albums are hand crafted to the highest quality using archival ink with the images printed directly on to the pages. You have an option to upgrade your album to a more classic matted album if you prefer a more traditional style.
