For me, photography is more than just getting a beautiful photo, it’s about capturing a moment, a connection between people. My ideal client is one that saves up for their dream wedding, and puts their thoughts and love into the aspects of the day that mean a lot to them, whether that’s being surrounded by family, wearing a beautiful gown or partying in a venue of their dreams. I am fiercely passionate about creating a connection with my clients, as I feel this is what I capture and what comes through on camera. I believe in not only loving your beautiful photographs, but about being reminded of having a great time and feeling comfortable while they were being taken. These photographs become heirlooms to bring alive your story to future generations, carefully crafted to showcase your once-in-a-lifetime memories.
The number one thing for me on a wedding day is for my couples to be comfortable while I am taking photos of them. I may guide you into a flattering pose and give small directions, but ultimately my goal is to capture you at your absolute most natural. I want you to look like the best version of yourself. I do tend towards a more romantic style of photo, with a softness in light and expression. I want you to hold hands, kiss each other, run your hands through each other’s hair – I just want to be there to capture it all.
My style of photography can be described as timeless, classic, romantic, soft, light, natural. I don’t use external lighting sources (except in dark reception areas) and rely solely on the beautiful light we are given every day. I guide you into angles that work best, and crack (often terrible) jokes to make you laugh or smile naturally. Forced smiles don’t feature in my life! Every wedding is totally different and I love bringing my own personal touch to your special day by photographing you in a way that will last a lifetime.
At the end of the day, these are your photographs and I want you to have the best possible memories of that day. As those memories may fade, I want you to be able to look back on your photos with fondness and smile as the memories rush back. In order for me to do that, we have to work together. I am just an email away if you want to check something with me, update me on your flower arrangements or just send me a sneak peek of your dress! I want us to create a relationship that allows you to share your day with me in such a way that I can accurately capture it. As in all relationships, communication is key, and I would love to hear from you.
