Originally from the UK, Aidan Dockery has photographed all over the world and captured countless weddings with his easy-going style and energizing spirit. It is easy to see the beautifully vibrant and rich culture reflected in his images, as well as his personal love for travel, people, and celebrations.
This multi-award-winning photographer describes his process of shooting as less about behind-the-camera directing and more about him capturing the natural moments and interactions between the couple.
All of these attributes combined allow Aidan to produce wedding images that are vivid, fun, and full of memories that will make you smile for years to come.
Every wedding is different and yours is unique.
I have a passion for people, celebrations, and photography, as well as a love for traveling and embracing different cultures. Destination weddings are an absolute delight, perfectly combining all these elements to create unforgettable memories.
Define your vision: Take some time as a couple to discuss and visualize what you want your wedding photography to look like. Consider the style, mood, and overall theme you envision for your wedding album. This will help you narrow down photographers who align with your creative vision.
Don't settle for trends: While it's essential to look at the photographer's portfolio for inspiration, don't feel obligated to follow the latest trends. Your wedding photographs should reflect your personality and relationship, so choose a photographer who can capture your genuine emotions rather than forcing you into staged or trendy poses.
Meet in person or via video call: It's essential to have a personal connection with your photographer. Arrange a meeting or a video call to discuss your wedding plans, ask questions, and get to know each other. You'll be spending a significant part of your big day with this person, so feeling comfortable and at ease around them is crucial.
Assess their portfolio: Scrutinize the photographer's portfolio to get a sense of their skill, creativity, and consistency in capturing beautiful moments. Look for their ability to tell a story through their photographs and check if they can handle different lighting conditions and environments.
Ask about their shooting style: Wedding photographers have different shooting styles, ranging from traditional and posed to candid and photojournalistic. Communicate your preference and ensure that the photographer can adapt to your desired style.
Consider personality and rapport: A good wedding photographer not only has the technical skills but also knows how to blend in with the crowd, make people feel at ease, and capture natural moments. Find someone who can balance professionalism with friendliness and approachability.
Transparency on pricing and packages: Wedding photography costs can vary significantly, so make sure you understand the photographer's pricing structure and what each package includes. Avoid hidden costs and ensure that the contract covers all necessary details.
Trust your instincts: At the end of the day, trust your gut feeling. If you have a positive feeling about a particular photographer and their work, it's a good sign that they may be the right fit for your wedding.
I have captured weddings in 15 countries on 4 continents. Available worldwide
