This evening we catch up with Worcestershire based Wedding Photographer Theresa Furey Photography.
How long have you been photographing weddings for and how did you get into it?
I photographed my first wedding in the summer of 2010 for a close friend. It was a no-brainer after that.
What do you particularly like about photographing weddings?
I completely love documenting life stories, especially ones involving love.
How would you describe your style and approach?
I am a reportage/ journalistic type of photographer. I don’t look for the ‘straight forward shoot’ I try to approach each photograph with a creative or artistic style. So that the photograph would be an image that my clients would love to have hanging on their walls, but at the same time it wouldn’t be out of place hanging on anyone’s wall as its a piece of fine art.
I am happy to provide the classic bride and groom portraits and group shots, as I know its something I’d definitely want of my wedding day too!
What advice would you give to couples looking for a wedding photographer?
Be sure you shop around well in advance of your wedding date so you can find a photographer who not only meets your budget, venue and date needs but is someone who you feel comfortable with and could possibly form a relationship with for future photography needs.
Where possible I’d recommend doing an engagement shoot with the potential photographer to ensure you feel comfortable with them and their style.
What tips would you share with couples to help their day go more smoothly?
Plan as much as possibly can be planned all the way up to a week before the wedding and then relax. Enjoy your time as a last time singleton and enjoy your wedding day. Being relaxed will make the documenting of your day genuine.
Finally… What is the best moment you’ve had as a wedding photographer?
There is one from every wedding that sticks out to me, but here are two that always pop straight into my mind. The first was when one of my brides had descended the steps in her home and turned the corner to enter a room where her mother and father were waiting to see her in her bridal ensemble. The moment her father caught sight of her he began to tear up and fill with great pride, joy, and awe. You could see it all right in that moment.
The second was a moment just after the bride and groom were announced man and wife, they kissed and turned to the crowd to walk down the aisle. The groom was so genuinely thrilled with this moment in his life he leapt into the air and clicked his heals. I felt so very privileged to witness these beautiful events, to capture them and preserve them forever in time.
