I have often heard professional writers say that their favourite part of the writing process is the moment they get to click print, or in the new digital age we now live, the moment they get to press send. My favourite part of producing a collection of photographs is the part where perhaps after a few weeks’ worth of editing, I have a folder full of ‘finished’ images waiting to be organized in to an order that will allow the collection to tell a story. This is the crux of reportage or documentary wedding photography, the ability to tell the story of the day, exactly as it was, through capturing every little detail.

There is no doubt that my documentary style of wedding photography stems from my own experiences of being photographed. Now something of a joke among family and friends, I am the female version of Chandler Bing.  The minute I become aware of a camera in the vicinity, I become so tense and  awkward that I am almost guaranteed to look nothing short of hideous in the resulting photograph! This has undoubtedly played a part in cultivating the natural, reportage style in which I shoot and I actively focus my attention on capturing my subjects off-guard. The result; beautiful and natural-looking shots of you looking your absolute best.

My aim is always to create a unique and stunning visual narrative of your day.  I try to remain as unobtrusive as possible and am always conscious of the fact that this is your wedding day and not a photo shoot! Of course, some formal shots will be taken and some time is spent away from your guests creating those fashion and editorial inspired images of the bride and groom but the majority of what I shoot will be around capturing the events  of the day as they unfold.

That said, my wealth of experience photographing people means that I’m able to offer subtle direction to put you and your guests at ease and as a self-confessed perfectionist, rest assured I won’t leave until I am 100% confident that we have achieved the best shots.

As no two clients or weddings are ever the same, I tailor all my wedding photography quotes on a bespoke basis based on factors such as length of coverage required, size and scale of the wedding, what type of album you require (if at all) and where and when you are getting married.

Discounts may be given for various reasons such as a midweek wedding or your wedding being at a venue I really want to photograph.
