Without wanting to sound pretentious, I see myself more as a photographer who come to your wedding and take photos than a ‘wedding photographer.’ I think it’s worth making this distinction because I’m not going to arrive at your wedding with a preconceived playbook. A bride and groom kissing at sunset with the light breaking between them looks good the first time you see it, but after the 1000th time you realise all the photographer is doing is inserting Couple A into Slot B and your connection gets lost in the sea of those images. Each couple is different and deserve photos that respond to them as people, not their friends and influencers in the wedding industry. Of course the images should still be striking, but they should also be unique. I have been named as one of the Top 30 Wedding Photographers in the world by Rangefinder magazine, and have won a number of awards with the Wedding Photojournalist Association, so I’m alright at the taking snaps bit. Equally I realise that my style isn’t for everyone but the people that it resonates with, well, we often really click and stay friends — which is another brilliant part of this job. Being paid to people watch, and making friends on the back of it. 🙂
A pretty unique documentary approach with a fashion editorial feel.
I get paid to people watch. What's better than that?
Ask to see a full gallery. Not just the highlights or the blog. Also, they really don't need to have seen the venue beforehand. That's something magazines tell brides to take up space and it just makes everyone neurotic.. ;-)
Have camera, will travel.
