So how does it all work then?
Me - who I am and what I do
As a Wedding Photographer I try to put myself in the shoes of my client. What would I want? What would I expect from my Wedding Photographer?
Your Wedding is not only one of the most special day’s of your life, it is also one of the most expensive.. and with that in mind it’s understandable that would want everything to be perfect! Being a perfectionist at heart I truly understand that as your photographer it is my job to not only capture your memories with care and love but also with skill and professionalism.
I have been a photographer for 16 years, it truly is not just a passion.. it is an obsession.
I absolutely love Wedding Photography and prefer to capture moments as they happen rather than be one of those shouty annoying Photographers. I love meaningful moments, passion, colour, and emotion (all things that help create the perfect Wedding).
I am a real people person and love that feeling at the end of each Wedding when I feel like one of your “Clique” and an honorary member of your family!
You - it’s your day, not mine
I understand that every Wedding is different. Different clients, themes, styles, personalities, and budgets.
It’s all about YOU!
I look forward to hearing about your dream day and tailoring myself around you and your needs, not the other way around! Too many photographers push their ideas and wants on their clients. I have been to my share of Weddings and cringed at the bossy Photographer who is running the show when the spotlight should be on the couple.
I like to think of myself as a photography ninja, yes you will know I am there from time to time and I may ask you to look at me from time to time, but I aim to be as invisible as I can and let your day play out the way it was intended capturing your memories rather than creating them.
When the time comes for your Newly Wed shots, I like to have you to myself for 20-30 minutes so that we can capture those first moments of the two of you together as a married couple. These will no doubt be the images that you fall in love with from your day and you treasure the most.
As naturally as your day will unfold, rest assured that a lot of planning and liaising between the three of us will happen prior to your Wedding Day so that I can make your vision a reality.
After the Wedding - editing process and album design
Once you are married and the day is behind you that’s when the real work begins for me. Every image is carefully edited, this involves cropping, artistic enhancements and colour grading. A substantial amount of time and care is taking over my editing to ensure you receive images of the highest standard. Your images will then be shared with you on my personalised USB Stick in a wooden presentation box and uploaded to a private online gallery on my website for your family and friends to view.
It’s then at this time that we finalise your Album Design and choose any prints that you require.

If you have chosen to have me photograph your special occasion then nothing feels more satisfying to see your images in print, after all you have paid for your photography so why not see it every day!
Can I purchase an album after the Wedding?
Yes you can but I advise we have an album meeting before the Wedding so that we can speed the process up after the wedding so you aren’t waiting too long.
