Welcome to the World of Monkeymole Photography, where we recruit the gigglers, the fairytale planners, the incurable romantics, and those wanting a rockstar-worthy celebration of love.
We’re not what you’d call your typical wedding photographer; we get the groomsmen started early on the Dutch courage, lace the bridesmaids with Prosecco & Haribo, flatter the in-laws, and party with you on the dancefloor (albeit with some seriously questionable dance moves).
We base our coverage of your day on our core beliefs; a wedding shouldn’t be a glorified photoshoot, and couples aren’t expected to be experienced models in front of the camera. Unatural posing and forced smiles are unceremoniously chucked out the window – instead focussing our efforts in documenting the story of day as it happens, and capturing those brilliantly natural moments of you pair being “you”.
By taking a “guided reportage” type approach to coverage, even the formal photographs can be approached with a sense of humour & fun. Whilst many associate this part of the day with being like a game of stand up Twister (put your left foot here, right hand there), we take it as an opportunity to get a ‘lil mischievous and spark up a bit of the passion that led you to getting hitched up – just no heavy petting if there’s kids about!
Our standard “Sunrise ’til Sambuca” coverage ensures you’ve got everything needed to tell the story of your day – I’m your chief troublemaker all the way from morning preparations until the drinks start flowing after the first dance, and all the important bits inbetween. There are a handful of ways in which the package can be tailored to you, and I’ve got some equally fantastic vendors I’m happy to bring along for the ride.
We put a huge amount of importance on getting to know you both all the way from initial enquiry, right through to the run up to the day. Your photographer is with you for longer than anyone else on the day, and it’s cruical they’ve got a personality that works for you.
No stone is left unturned in the prep; everything from the group photographs & timings, through to those seemingly small details that have huge meaning to you – we cover it all beforehand, so the day itself is as relaxed as possible.
If you’re a fan of my work and think I sound like a decent chap, I’d love to get to know you both, and listen to your plans for the day.
"Low posing, high fun" is the best way to describe my style. Unnatural & awkward posing goes completely out the window, and instead we focus on capturing the true moments of you having the most incredible day. Most of the day you won't even know your photograph is being taken - when a bit of guidance is needed, you'll be having an absolute blast without ever feel like you're having to endure a photoshoot.
