My approach to photographing weddings has and always will be to capture your wedding day and tell your story in a genuine, relaxed and unobtrusive manner. To capture it all as it really happens.
I want you to look back at your photographs in many years to come and remember every moment, the laughter, the tears, but most importantly you and your partner having fun on your wedding day with those that mean the most to you.
My half day and full day package includes a second photographer at no extra cost to yourselves, this means that we can cover more of your wedding and see if from two different view points.
It really doesn't matter if I haven't photographed at your wedding venue before, as Iudnertakej a visit with you prior to your wedding day. It gives me a chance to get to know your venue and look at it with a fresh pair of eyes.
Formal and traditional is far from the service I provide. I am more than open to working with anyone and everyone, however I do tend to keep group photographs to a minimum - 30 minutes and your newly wed photographs to an hour.
Whilst i am open to working with anyone, it is super important to me that we are the right fit. If you are looking for formal and traditional, unfortunetly I am not the photographer for you. So it really is important that we are a good fit and that my approach falls in line with what you are looking for on you wedding day. I offer free consultations to ensure that we are the correct fit, we'll have a chat over a cuppa and talk about your day and expectations in a neutral venue. This will give you a chance to get to know me and me to know you.
My style is best suited for any couple who are looking to keep their wedding photography real and formal photos to a minimum.
If you like my work and think I might be the photographer for you, please do not hesitate to get in touch an ebook in for a free no obligation consultation.
if you love the idea of having a wedding photographer who takes a laid back, relaxed and unobtrusive approach to photographing your day, I would love to hear from you.
I love nothing more than being outdoors, if I'm not working you'll more than likely find me out and about with Mr J and with my camera in hand.
I love working with natural light and prefer to take a relaxed and informal approach to my work. I absolutely LOVE photographing weddings, it really is the best job ever. By taking a relaxed approach to weddings, it enables me to capture the real moments that matter, the real moments that you want to remember for years to come, the moments which naturally happen and show a true reflection of your day.
I understand that not everyone has the same budgets or requirements for their wedding day so I do try to offer services to suit all budgets - if your requirements fall outside of the standard packages which are listed on the Investments page, please contact me and I can create bespoke wedding day package for you.
My love of photography started just over 30 years ago when I picked up my very first film camera and discovered that I could capture little moments of time in an instant. A few years later, I was still fascinated by photography and the whole process of it and went on to study photography at college. For me there was something truly magical and amazing about developing my own film, printing and watching images I'd taken develop before my eyes.
In 1999, I left my home town to continue studying photography at University and in 2006, I moved over to the beautiful town of flowers, Shrewsbury. Little did I know that this would be where I would meet my husband and where we both still live with our adorable but crazy cats, Dexter & Brodie.
Once the magic of the wedding is over it will be the pictures that you will turn to time and time again to relive those precious moments. Photographs that tell the story of your wedding day naturally as it unfolds. Nothing is posed, nothing is contrived. You will have photographs that will simply take your breath away as they instantly transport you back to a specific moment from your wedding day. Not just showing you how you looked, but reminding you of how you felt. Because that is what good wedding photography does.
NATURAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
It’s your day and we want to capture it naturally recording those precious moments of your wedding day. Whether it’s the moment a groom first sees his bride or a look shared between a bride and her father. As we are both capturing your special day we are able to photograph those fabulous relaxed candid moments, like children playing under a table, friends larking about on the lawn.
These moments help tell the full story of your wedding day.
Not many people like being in front of a camera, that’s why we keep things really relaxed. That way our couples are relaxed and we get the best images. Have you ever noticed that you always look your best when your’e having fun.
RELAXED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
It’s your day and we want you to be free to enjoy it with your friends and family. We will photograph your wedding day naturally telling the story as it unfolds. Moving around your wedding relatively unnoticed, capturing your day as you experience it, and the odd little quirks that you may miss! Of course there may be group shots that you want (they’re not obligatory) we’ll do them quickly and naturally. Photographing you and your guests looking relaxed, happy and looking fabulous.
Your bride and groom portraits will be done without fuss and with minimal disruption to your wedding day. We choose the perfect time and work quickly so that your guests won’t really notice you gone. For most couples this is the first time since the ceremony you have had the chance to spend some time alone together. We may gently direct you in some of these shots so we can take photographs that you will be thrilled with, before returning you to your guests as quickly as possible.
CREATIVE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Having two of us photographing the day really allows us to be creative making sure you get a lovely blend of the photographs you were expecting (that will exceed all of your expectations) whether it be a stunning sunset image or a dramatic night time image we have the experience and skills to deliver you incredible wedding photographs.
FUN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
We love weddings and we want you to enjoy your wedding as much as we will love capturing it for you. We always keep everything relaxed and fun on your wedding day. Capturing your day with all of the wonderful emotion your special day delivers.
Our style is spontaneous which is perfect for wedding photography. Weddings are full of love and laughter and we’re on hand to capture every laugh and every smile and even the tears. When we are not capturing portraits or group shots we are taking natural pictures of the wedding party and everything that is happening around you. We often receive comments from couples after viewing their wedding images like “I didn’t even know that was happening”.
AND ON TO THE DANCING
On our all day coverage options because we stay to cover your first dance and a few songs afterwards. We can capture the real party as your wedding guests join you on the dance floor. This is a wonderful opportunity to capture some fantastic images of you and your guests as the party really gets going.
I love what I do, and I aim to capture your wedding day as naturally as possible. I want to provide you with a gallery of photographs that not only tells the story of your day as it happened, but photographs that capture you naturally when you are surrounded by your friends and family having THE best day.
You can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that I although I will be present, I won't be up front and in your face all day, and in all honesty 90% of the time you might not even notice that I am there. My main aim is for you to feel comfortable which is why I take a step back as this allows you and your guests space to enjoy the day and which will allow me to capture those beautiful candid moments.
Whilst I will mainly capture your day naturally, we will ensure that there is time for those all important group photos, and of course your couples photos. When it comes to your couples photos, I will whisk you away from your guests for two 30 minute sessions, this allows you time to spend alone together, and will probably be the first real opportunity for you to catch up on your wedding day. I also find this time means that you are naturally interacting, which helps me capture those natural moments between you both, but don't worry if you are feeling a little unsure as to what to do or how to stand, I will of course give you some gentle direction if needed.
