I've been pointing lenses at people and landscapes for lots of years now, more years than I would like to mention as it make me feel old. Let's just say I'm experienced!
I've covered many weddings and can work in both Colour and Black & White. My approach is professional and relaxed. Let's face it, most of us aren't fans of posing for photographs and many feel awkward in front of a camera, so my aim is to document the day as it unfolds, with as little staging as possible. I try to blend in so that I can capture those moments you might have missed in the bustle of the day.
Formal group shots can be included too of course, though I try to keep these as relaxed, fun and brief as possible.
For your re-assurance, I have full Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance. I'm also a Professional Member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and a member of Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI). I'm also DBS checked.
Myself and my cameras (and any other necessary equipment) for whichever portions of the day you would like me there. Also as much pre-wedding consultation with regard to the photography as required.
For a full day's coverage, I would usually arrive midway through the preparations so that I can cover most aspects. I tend to dip in and out so won't be pointing a lens in your direction for the entire morning. I also use that time to get some shots of the details (dresses, suits, accessories etc) and try to capture the general buzz of the morning. It gives everyone a chance to get used to having me in the background which makes for more natural shots as the day goes on. In the evening I usually stay on until the first dance to capture a taste of the evening. All of this can be adjusted all to suit your plans - basically I'lI arrive when you'd like me to and leave when you've had enough.
Don't worry if this sounds too much - getting some lovely shots of you both doesn't have to be an ordeal and it doesn't have to take an age.
After the Wedding
After the day I individually process each image (not as a batch as many do). I don't supply a certain number of shots, you receive everything 'useful' (i.e. no duplicates, closed eyes etc).
You'll also receive an album of your favourite images.
I can also put the images into a password protected online gallery so anyone you choose can log on to have a look. You get to choose which one's you want to share of course! Your guests can also order prints or digital downloads through the gallery if they wish, this saves you from having to organise this.
There are no hidden extras, all travel and expenses are included.
