As a Portrait Photographer
I specialise in capturing unique moments. My aim is to make the portrait shoot as comfortable, enjoyable and relaxed as possible. With this in mind I spend time getting to know you on our initial meeting/conversation and working out what you want from the shoot and then choosing the right location and environment for you.
I aim to provide you with beautiful, natural, spontaneous and unique images that I know you will want to treasure forever.
As a Wedding and Engagement photographer
I take a more documentary photojournalistic approach, preferring to stay unobtrusive and non-invasive as much as I can. I avoid overly posed photographs, preferring the decisive moments that reflect the emotions and spirit of your wedding day. I have a relaxed working style that encompasses both the formal and candid moments as well as the multitude of details that create a truly memorable wedding. This is documentary wedding photography as it happens which means capturing the funny, the artistic, the glamorous, the memories and indeed any group and family photographs that you want. Because a wedding is a one-time event, your wedding photographer must be able to anticipate the action and also be prepared for unexpected twists. Wedding photography is both exhausting and fun as I am always in search of original angles while still keeping a ‘fly on the wall’ approach. Communication and planning time lines before the event will alleviate much of the stress that can sometimes be associated with wedding photography. An ability to tactfully take charge helps – particularly when photographing large groups or families.
