My style is relaxed, creative and fun. I photograph mainly in a storytelling fly on the wall documentary style, and mix it up with a few creative shots for a photo gallery that is completely unique to you and your wedding.
Weddings are about emotions for me. From the morning when you feel a mixture of nervousness and excitement, to the tension that you feel as you stand at the bottom of the aisle, to the elation you feel as you become husband and wife, to the hilarious speeches and the manic dancing late at night, that's what I love to capture. I love the little tears that run down the groom's face, or the wink in the dad's eye as he hands his daughter over, to the pride in their mums' eyes as they see their children take the next step in life. I also love the stolen moments between a couple, when everyone is busy chatting and they seem to be in a little bubble, intimately untouchable by anyone else for a few quick moments. This is what I point my lens at and what my clients love to see in my photos.
Great and good photographers book up early, often years in advance. I'm sure you've found this with venues too. The good ones go quickly and early. After you have your venue booked in, find the best photographer your money can buy. Everything else will be consumed on the day, be worn once or gather dust on your shelf afterwards, but your photos will stand the test of time and will tell your story to your kiddies and their kiddies. They are your memories, and your most treasured possession from your big day.
Also, let them come alive in a wedding album. Although most wedding photographers will provide your photos in a gallery or on a USB, how often are you actually going to look at them hidden in a drawer in your desk? If you can't afford one straight away, don't worry. Many photographers (that offer this service) are happy to design an album for you at any point down the line, be it for your first wedding anniversary or another.
