It's so important that you choose the right photographer for your day. Someone who is on the same page and totally gets your priorities.
My aim is always to make you feel as relaxed as possible. Not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera, but 10 minutes in and you'll be wondering what there was to be nervous about. I stay in the background as much as possible to capture your natural interactions, but will always give prompts and guidance where needed. I look for the details, the emotions and the connections... and the FUN.
I know that getting 'formal' group family photos is important to you (mine are hanging on the wall in front of me right now) and so we'll work together to add these into you day and get them ticked off quickly so that you can get back to your guests.
We'll also find a few opportunities throughout the day to get natural, relaxed photos of the two of you, showing off your venue and all of the details that you've put so much time and effort into. This could include: a first look before your ceremony; a stop-off or quick drive out to a local location; 20-30 minutes during your reception around your venue; a few photos at sunset.
Most of all, we'll have fun and I'll capture the pure joy of your day.
