Capturing special moments is what wedding photography is all about for me. I am based in Kent but travel across the UK to use the naturally happy emotions of your special day to document it and tell its beautiful story. There are typically very few days in our lives that we can 100% guarantee will be full of fun. Thankfully wedding photography means there are many more in mine when I know there will be smiles, laughter and happy tears aplenty.

BEFORE YOUR WEDDING

Each one of my packages includes a pre-wedding consultation. We will arrange a suitable date and time to discuss your wedding in detail – timings, locations, key members, surprise elements etc. so that I’m aware of all the awesomeness you have planned. We may even decide that a venue visit is worthwhile just to nail down good spots for particular shots.

It’s always great getting to know my couples and I also think it helps in making you more comfortable being photographed – one reason I always recommend an engagement shoot as a warm up so that you know what to expect!

I’ll also be available throughout your planning so if things change or you have any questions you can just contact me and I can talk you through options.

ON THE DAY

I typically start a couple of hours before your ceremony, to get some getting ready shots of the bride and her bridesmaids. Then we obviously have the main event and plan group shots for soon after this at the reception.

One of the big things to consider (this is me talking selfishly) is planning time in your wedding day schedule for photos. Naturally you want to spend time with your guests but having some alone time together allows you a chance to reflect on your day and just be together. So don’t underestimate the value of us going off for your couple portraits and I’d allow about 30 minutes for it.

I have a relaxed and light style and to make sure each photograph is the best it can be I give small amounts of direction when necessary, but I steer clear of anything contrived. There is nothing worse to me than seeing wedding photography where the couple looks awkward. I believe your photographs reflect your day when they contain natural light, natural emotion and a natural you.

It’s your wedding day and it’s there for you both to enjoy every second of it. Wedding photography is obviously something you’ve thought about – why else would you be here? – and it is important that you choose a photographer that suits you and that you can get on with.

HOW TO BOOK

Amazing, you want to book me! First things first, contact me and I’ll send you a short booking form which contains questions about you both and your day. If you’re still in the early stages of planning and haven’t got everything decided just yet, don’t panic!, it’s just to give me a rough idea.

To secure your date in my diary I’ll then request a non-refundable booking fee of £250 and issue a contract for us both to sign. It’s that simple!

I would love to know more about your wedding plans
