Wedding photography is my passion. I love the joy of the day, getting to know you and your guests, helping make sure all the key moments are captured as they happen. I’ll be with you from as early as you would like, until the party is in full swing. It’s your wedding so I’ll take your lead as to what would work best for you.
Before the big day I’ll spend a few hours talking about your plans, the day, what photographs and images you like and what you want your photos to deliver and of course taking some engagement shots. I can provide you with all the images on a USB in colour and black and white as a basic package, but will happily print, make albums and books, pictures and even cushions – the choice is yours. I often work with a second photographer so that we can cover all the key moments from different directions.
Your wedding will be unique and so as the photographer it's vital that I'm ready for anything and looking for all those amazing angles and priceless moments. I'll be spending a lot of your special day with you, so it's very important to me that I blend in with the family and friends and become part of the celebration in a friendly, warm and helpful way. I'd describe my style as photojournalistic. I'm looking to follow the day that you've planned in an unobtrusive and helpful way. We will want to spend some time doing portraits and groups, but this should not shape your day but be an enjoyable part of the process of celebrating with your family and friends. I also like those little details and special moments which happen along the way and will give extra colour to your wedding photographs for years to come.
Weddings are the most joyful and exciting days in anyone' life and I love being part of them. I love the emotions, the fun, the special details people have planned for their guests to enjoy, and the wonderful locations they've chosen to celebrate their wedding. No weddings are ever the same, and come rain or shine, the unexpected or the extraordinary, I feel privileged to be able to share those occasions and capture them for posterity.
My advice would be 1. Think about what you want from your photographs after the wedding and select your photographer based on if their style fits your vision 2. Make sure you are comfortable with your photographer as a person. They'll be with you all through your special day 3. Don't plan too many group shots - just the key ones you want, See what happens on the day and if you want to do more then you can add in 4. Make sure you photographer is really interested in your day - it's not just another job for them

“We loved our experience with Esther. From start to finish she was reliable, professional and we loved the outcome of our pictures. I wanted a natural and relaxed day, and Esther fitted with that so well. She captured what was important without imposing and she was a joy to have with us for our special day. We would highly recommend her for any occasion.”
Esther was really helpful and friendly at our wedding at Lords. She made the whole experience really easy and we love the photographs. She also did a great job of creating our Albums after the wedding
