Trust is a big issue when it comes to wedding photography. You see, my style isn’t the ‘traditional’ way – asking people to say cheese for photos, interrupting every genuine moment for a grin at the camera or taking an almost choreographed set of pictures. My style is much more reactive, I document what is happening around me on the day. So trust – you trust me to do what I do and you’ll end up with pictures that show real moments.
I’m honoured to share wedding days with my couples – a wedding day is a big one off, and delivering a fantastic set of pictures is a real thrill. I spent the last day of my twenties photographing a wedding, and wouldn’t have had it any other way.
People tell me I’m easy going and easy to get on with, but I also think it’s important. Your photographer is the one person you’ll hire for your wedding that you’ll spend a lot of time with – it’s important that you get along with them and trust them.
I don’t try and be invisible. You’ll know I’m there and because we’ve built up that trust, we’ll all be fine with it. I don’t skulk around the edges of a wedding with a big paparazzi lens, I get in to the action with your friends and family, I chat, I’ll tell terrible jokes, but most importantly I get great pictures.
