My day depends entirely on yours. I like to ensure that I capture the smiles from the very first moment. The nerves and the laughter are so much part of the whole occasion; that’s why I don’t want to miss the little things. I’ll be starting a few hours before the actual ceremony with the bridal party getting those little details which will capture the anticipation and excitement for the rest of the day.
Your day will then unfold as you’ve planned it, you’ll see me slip into the background or – even better – you won’t see me. But I’ll be there, documenting all the day’s special moments for you.
Often guests love to gather together for some group shots. Which we can do it you want, or not, it’s your day. Afterwards, we might slip away from the crowds and capture some more intimate moments between the two of you. It’s the laughter, the joy, that unique feeling of complete togetherness which will inspire some real creativity. This is my favourite time to get those special photos of just the two of you.
Later on in your day I’ll be back documenting those beautiful, relaxed moments where you and your guests have settled into the day. I’ll photograph the speeches, but I’m not just interested in the speakers, it’s the reactions which I want to capture as well, to see the joy of the people who are sharing your day with you.
Depending on how your day is planned, after dinner, when the light often has that wonderful soft mellow quality, we might find a bit more time for some personal moments outside. Then no doubt you’ll be throwing on your dancing shoes and letting your hair down.
Now, I must admit, I’m not much of a dancer — I don’t know if it’s a photographer thing, but when the music starts, that’s my cue to grab a quick coffee before getting those final shots as your guests dance the night away!
