Beautiful Photography from Amy Faith
First and foremost – I AM A NON-TRADITIONAL DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER WITH A LOVE FOR CREATIVE, FUN, WONDERFUL PORTRAITS AND SILLY FACES. This means I get to combine my love of candid as-it-happens photography with my love of super beautiful portraiture.
My passion lies within the kinds of weddings that truly resonate with your nutty personalities, your lovely hearts, your funny expressions, your inevitable weirdness, your crazy ideas, your hilarious families and your loud friends. I want to document the day as it REALLY was – everything from the monumental to the unnoticed – even the smallest things can become truly extraordinary.
As stated above, my photography style is anything but traditional. The natural images I capture reflect the true essence of the day in a fun, contemporary and creative way. I want to capture you two feeding cake to one another after cutting it awkwardly with a large blunt knife. Your uni mates and you crashing together on the dance floor in a huge hug, singing drunkenly into my camera lens. Your mum having a laugh with the ushers because your mum has top bants. Your dad, the big softie, blubbing at the sight of his baby all grown up and getting married. Because THAT is what your wedding day is going to be all about. Real moments.
And don’t worry – the BEST wedding days are perfectly imperfect <3
It might rain (because hey, this is the UK!!), you might be late, you might have non-RSVP guests turn up, you might slop gravy on your fancy waistcoat, you might forget your bouquet, you might get sweaty busting shapes on the dancefloor, you might get drunk by 4pm, you might kick your garter off while walking down the aisle, you might need 3 girls to help hold your dress while you pee, you might split your trousers break-dancing, you might get sloppily kissed on the lips by your great auntie Mildred, you might ugly-cry during the speeches, you might rip your veil after climbing into that frigging gorgeous sunset-lit field for epic couple photos…
AND THAT’S ALL FINE! Because this is YOUR wedding day, you can do whatever you want and MORE! My camera will capture aaaalllll of it – I don’t avoid the “messy” moments, because they are some of the best moments.
Don’t worry though, I don’t shirk away from capturing a few long beloved traditional moments if they are important to you, but I will always, always, ALWAYS put the non-forced moments first. Because in the future on those quiet rainy days, when you put the kettle on, cuddle up on the sofa and pull out your wedding album to reminisce about your big day, you can bet your bottom dollar that it will be the natural shots that spark ALL of the feels.
This I promise.
Cross my heart, hope to cry, stick a finger in my eye.
I completely adore the documentary/reportage style of shooting. This style has a way of making the viewer feel as though they actually were a part of the wedding congregation on your very special day. I want to capture raw emotions, hilarious expressions, guffawing laughter and raucous tears of joy; all of the moments that you cant force or plan or re-enact. By combining my fresh and contemporary candid style of shooting with my background in beautiful editorial photography, the portraits of your and your partner will be something you can cherish forever.
There is something unbelievably special about being asked to capture a wedding day. A photographer is the ONLY person in the entire wedding privileged enough to accompany the couple EVERYWHERE; from the very second you open the door to me in the morning, with you all bright eyed and bushy tailed, all the way up to the moment you guys get down with youbad selves on the dance floor to celebrate your union with all of your family and friends. Oh and cake. I love cake.
Research, research, research!! Then research some more. You aren't just looking for a photographer, you're basically looking for a new best friend. You are looking for someone who will click with you from the moment you meet, someone who completely understands how crazy you are about your dog, how much you love Harry Potter/Game of Thrones/Rupaul's Drag Race, how amazing you think your partner looks when they are dishevelled from dancing like a goon for hours. For that one day you need to have someone by your side that you can trust implicitly. Also, don't forget, when you look back on your wedding photographs on your 100th birthday (yes, you'll make it, I believe in you!), you won't see that weird bit of arm jiggle you hate, you won't see that your hair has come slightly loose and there are tendrils in your face, you won't see those last 2 lbs you didn't lose before the big day... you will only see the smiles, the faces, the memories. Don't let your current insecurities ruin your big day - and girls, for the love of God, don't worry if your dress gets dirty!! Would you rather have a pristine dress in the attic and boring pictures, or bloody AMAZING photographs and a dress full of memories that you can recall whenever you pull it out of it's dusty old box :)
