So what can you expect when I attend your wedding? First and foremost, a good time! I like to have a laugh at the weddings I attend, but you will have my cast-iron assurance that I will be smartly-dressed, polite and courteous to guests and other staff at all times.
I believe there are other important aspects to the wedding service I provide, in addition to camera and editing skills, which undoubtedly enhance the day. A wedding is often the most important day of our brides’ and grooms’ lives, and I’m never complacent about this fact. I’m receptive to special requests, and maintain a positive, can-do attitude at all times.
Pick from either an amazing Photography or Videography service. This may include shots of attendant family or friends, as well as tasteful and discreet coverage of bridal preparations such as finishing touches to hair and make-up, or placing of jewellery, tiara or veil. From there, I head directly to the ceremony venue to set the scene. I capture guests arriving and meeting with the groom, and entering the venue, followed by the bride’s arrival. I then shoot the entire ceremony (with prior venue approval, see FAQ).
Once the ceremony is complete, it’s time for photos. My general approach to wedding photography is fun and creative, using four styles to effectively display such a detailed day.
Still Life, Group shots, Portraits and Reportage.
I focus mainly on reportage and traditional styles for the preparation, venue, ceremony and reception shots. Fun works best for group photos, I feel, and contemporary, still-life shots flatteringly highlight all the little details of the day.
When group shots are complete, I travel to the reception venue. I shoot the entire reception room, along with you and the rest of the ‘top table’ entering and greeting your guests.
Cameras are switched off while guests eat. I then shoot the speeches in full. I always capture the cutting-of-the-cake, first dance, and a few evening party scenes. Each wedding is different, and I’m dedicated to making your day as personal to you as possible. Therefore, this account is given as an example only.
When the editing, mixing and rendering is complete (usually two-eight weeks later, depending on time of year), you are emailed a link to view the first approval version online. Once approved, I then send you a DVD, Blu-ray or USB depending on which service you have booked.
