The little things...
From the hand painted sign to show the guests where to go, to the beautifully shaped back of a wedding dress, it's my job to record as much of this uniqueness as possible.
These are the many choices that make every wedding an expression of the couple's style and personality.
Recording the day...
The majority of my time is spent capturing real interactions and moments, that represent the true story of how your day unfolds. I aim to create a tangible, visual memory, with all the most important people in your life, within it.
All you need to do is be in the moment, focus on your partner, your loved ones, your besties by your side. Enjoy the adoring attention and love that's directed to you on this special day, be present and forget about the camera, this is the best way to ensure great photos.
Designing The Set...
For small parts of the day, we need to create some lovely portraits of you and your partner separately, together and with your bridal buddies.
Like an 'art director', I will frame up a beautiful shot, using the space and light available, to make the most aesthetically pleasing portraits for you.
I may simply ask you to 'walk together over that way' or 'sit here and enjoy the view'. The compositions we create during these set up scenes will feel and look very natural, so don't worry it's easy!
Recording the location...
The venue or location you've chosen may have a scenic view or sentimental value, these bridal portraits are all about recording as much of the wider scene as possible.
These can make for fabulous panoramic canvas prints, why not, especially if the location lends itself to some ultra wide shots.
Expecting and receiving a bundle of joy...
Maternity sessions are about recording your glowing anticipation of the life changing event about to unfold, and the love you both have for each other that will guide you through the challenges ahead.
The best time to do newborn photos is within 2 weeks of birth, recording your baby at this stage is very special, so don't miss it.
I come to you in the comfort of your home and we'll work with that to create natural, connected loving images, that are not contrived or styled too heavily.
True personalities shining through...
If you're after a portrait of all the family face forward and smiling artificially in harmony, you'll need to visit a studio for that!
My approach is to play a little and inspire the kids to express themselves, capturing real moments and expressions of their true personality, plenty of smiles, plenty of laughs, plenty of action shots.
Sometimes getting dirty, sometimes getting moody, these are the many faces of your child, they're all worthy of recording.
