Congratulations on Your Engagement!
If you are here, it means you have found the perfect partner to spend the rest of your life with, which is worth celebrating! Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event that deserves to be captured in all its beauty and joy. As a Photography Artisan specialising in Weddings, I’d be honoured to help you immortalise the memories of your Big Day and make it truly unforgettable.
Wedding Photography Starts with You
Planning a wedding can be intimidating, especially if it’s your first time. While most couples understand the need to hire a professional photographer for their big day, choosing the right one can feel overwhelming, but I’m here to guide you every step of the way. The first thing to understand is that your wedding day is ABOUT YOU and what you envision for that special day. My role as your wedding photographer is to document all these emotional moments in a story-compelling and visually creative way. I’m eager to get to know you both and hear about your love story and vision for your wedding day.
Are you planning a few-hour elopement or a more traditional wedding that will last a whole day? There is no right or wrong; just a matter of preference. Once you have made up your mind, you will know how much coverage you need/want.
While I have the pleasure of documenting intimate elopements every year and even have the honour of being one of the official witnesses, most of the weddings I photograph tend to be more traditional. My coverage typically starts with the morning preparations and lasts late into the night, with no set end time. Unlike some photographers who only cover up to the first dance, I take pride in staying until every moment of your special day has been recorded.
Throughout the day, I’m always on the lookout for special moments and unique details that make your wedding day memorable. As the evening progresses, things tend to slow down, and I’ll check in with you to see if there’s anything else you’d like me to capture. Finally, we’ll agree to end the story if you’re happy with what we’ve crafted together.
Every wedding is a unique love story, and my job is to secure those moments authentically and beautifully. By staying until the end, I can capture every detail and emotion without adding unnecessary time pressure on you and your guests, creating a story you’ll treasure for years to come.
The Style You Deserve
When planning your wedding, you may have been asked by a photographer what style you prefer, leaving you unsure of what to answer. This is understandable, as many people are not familiar with photography styles.
In the past, wedding photography was formal and posed due to the limitations of photographic equipment. However, today’s digital technology allows photographers to capture natural, non-posed photographs that tell the story of your special day.
While inexperienced photographers may suggest relying solely on candid shots to document your wedding, this is very risky. Details such as jewellery, hair, makeup, and attire are crucial to make your wedding unique. Hiring a professional photographer skilled in educating and posing people will ensure that your wedding story is portrayed in the best possible way with the same attention to detail. Candid shots are still essential but should be the “cherry on top” of a well-planned and executed day.
As an artist photographer specializing in weddings and portraits, I see it as my responsibility to make you look your best. This includes setting up the scene for candid shots and using light to inject dimension, texture, mood, energy, and emotion into each photo. So don’t leave your wedding photos to chance; hire a Qualified Master Photographer to capture your special day.
Fun Leads to Magic
As a wedding photographer, I believe in capturing your special day in a way that will make you feel inspired and empowered for years to come. Our journey begins long before the wedding day, as we work together to create a timeline and mood board that will ensure every moment is captured creatively and beautifully.
But the secret to truly great photography is simple: HAVING FUN!
I understand that photography is more than just snapping images; it’s about capturing emotions and memories that will last a lifetime. I believe in creating an enjoyable and stress-free experience for everyone involved, and it starts with you both.
My Signature Engagement Shoot is not your typical pre-wedding photo session. Instead, over three hours, it’s a chance for us to get to know each other, for me to understand your personalities and boundaries, and for you to learn how to be in front of the lens. My mission is to help you look and feel your absolute best in front of the camera. I believe that minor adjustments to your posture can make a massive difference in the final result of your photos. By working together, we can highlight your unique personality and record your love story most authentically and beautifully as possible. My approach is not about making you look like a model but bringing out your character and natural beauty. Through repetition and practice, you will feel confident and empowered, not just for your engagement photos but for your wedding day. Your confidence will spread across your guests, which will significantly impact their experience.
The result is a relaxed and playful atmosphere throughout your Big Day, translating into beautiful storytelling photographs you will cherish for years to come. So let’s create something special together!
The Most Emotional Entertainment in the evening
Have you ever experienced the lull that can happen after a wedding evening buffet? The music fades, and the excitement starts to wane. But what if there was a way to revive the energy and bring back the joy and emotion of the day?
Enter My Signature Same Day Slideshow – a magical and inspiring way to keep the celebration going! This musical slideshow, created using photographs captured throughout the day, is presented on the wedding day itself, ensuring that both day and evening guests are included in the fun.
It’s a unique and unforgettable way to relive the day’s memorable moments, surrounded by loved ones and the beauty of the day.
From Digital to Prints, Wall Art and Albums
With photography being easily accessible through smartphones, almost everyone carries a camera in their pocket. Though people are accustomed to taking photos of everything and sharing them instantly, the true essence of a photograph can only be experienced through a printed copy. As a Photography Artisan and Fine Art Printer, I take pride in creating every Photographic and Fine Art print in my studio. In addition, I design my clients’ albums and collaborate with a Scottish lab to produce award-winning handmade photo albums and Wall Art. While I provide digital copies, my couples confess to using them mainly to showcase their wedding outside of their home. They also have access to a private online gallery where their loved ones can view the Wedding Story.
