I love weddings – truly love them. They are all such wonderful, happy events, and it’s a privilege and a joy to be part of your special day. I specialise in small weddings, whether it’s just the two of you eloping and pulling a couple of witnesses off the street, or a day including your closest friends and family. I’m happy to cover any part of the day from your preparations to the speeches, if you are looking for just part of the day please get in touch and I’ll see if I can be there for you.
I know that some people don’t want the formal, posed shots of stiffly awkward family members lined up on the front steps, or a checklist of family members to queue up for a turn being snapped with the happy couple – but instead want candid shots of their loved ones enjoying each other’s company throughout the day.
If this relaxed and informal style appeals to you, and the wedding you’ve planned is something more unique, I would be the perfect fit. My natural photography style is personal, candid and intimate – and I focus very much on helping people to relax and be themselves, forgetting that the camera is there, so that I can capture the genuine interactions between individuals or groups.
Part of the shoot is sneaking the newlyweds away just after the ceremony, giving you space for a short walk without your guests, time to connect, to marvel in the joy of what you’ve just done, the changed relationship, the strange otherness and intimacy that you may not have expected to feel, but which absolutely exists in the hours after you are officially wed – and, of course, to capture these moments on camera so that you never forget them.
Then I return you to the embrace of your wedding party, and capture the celebration and warmth of the day in a range of images which tell the story of your wedding from beginning to end, with none of those rigid smiles you know from old fashioned formal albums!
I am based in Derbyshire and usually work locally, but can travel further afield if you book in advance – have a look through my gallery of wedding images below to get an idea of the style and range of images you could receive, and get in touch with me to discuss your wedding plans, and we can discuss what you require from me and I can quote for the amount of time you need me rather than a whole or half day rate.
You can get in touch via the contact form on this website, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 07935 212571.
