I can vividly remember our own wedding day. Like most couples, Sam and I were not used to being in front of the camera and we felt soooo awkward being posed. It just wasn't us and felt really unnatural. After the honeymoon our favourite photos were the natural moments. The staged photos made us cringe!
This is why I became a wedding photographer because I wanted couples to have natural wedding photos, where they could really be themselves. No silly posing. No awkward kissing shots. Just natural, spontaneous moments...with a teeny tiny bit of light direction if needed BUT in a natural way. Because it's important that you feel comfortable in your own skin. You see, the thing is, to be a good photographer....It's important for me to be able to make you feel 100% comfortable. And the great news is that I know exactly how to do that.
Getting people to feel relaxed comes easy to me. I care. I really, really do. I go out of my way to make sure my couples are happy. I love people like you and I have the ability to connect with everybody and anybody. I am a people person.
A little about my background. My career is probably a bit different from other wedding photographers you'll meet. I spent ten years making TV trailers for Sky and ITV and won loads of awards. Working with actors and TV presenters taught me how to get the best out of people. Though after 10+ years of telly, I swapped the bright lights of TV for a pair of Canon cameras. That was in 2009 and I haven't looked back since. You can learn about my philosophy here and see my wedding photography portfolio here.
