I love doing it!
I really value the importance of photos so being able to provide you with photos to cherish of your big day is so important to me. Capturing the emotions and all of the little details that you've worked so hard on.
I love the buzz so much that I'm aiming to become a wedding photographer full time (at the moment I'm working a day job then wearing my photographer hat on evenings and weekends to reach this goal!).
When someone truly enjoys what they do, they will pour their heart and soul into it and it'll show.
Flexible time limits
I hate the thought of missing out any important moments of your wedding day!
You may have heard about wedding photography being booked for a set time but what happens if your wedding day doesn't strictly follow the schedule planned? (which is quite often the case with weddings!). I'm not going to leave before I've photographed all I came for or mess around with having to charge extra if I go over that set time.
I have full day packages or a flexible package. I will be there from bridal prep until after the party starts for full day or I will attend for the moments you've asked for, for the flexible package.
I value your trust
It's a big challenge to find the right photographer for your wedding day. They will be spending a whole day of 12+ hours with you, you want to know you're booking someone you actually like!
You need to know that you can trust them to take fantastic photos of your special day to capture the memories for you to cherish forever.
I like to make sure you have a face to face consultation for you to meet me and decide if I'm right for you, then once booked in we'll arrange a pre-wedding photoshoot which are part of all full day wedding packages.
These pre-wedding photoshoots are a casual and fun way for us to meet up and get to know each other better whilst you get more used to being in front of a camera.
I think its so important to print your photos! Having them displayed in a lovely album on the shelf is so much better than keeping them on your laptop etc.
It's easier to pick it up and share with friends and family. There's just something more magical about holding an album in your hands.
I include a wedding album in every wedding package!
I'll be there for you...
I will be an ear to listen or even give some advice. I recently got married in 2018 and can remember the planning process well! I will also carry a bag of bits and bobs such as deodorant, nail glue or even paracetamol on your wedding day!
I have worked as a teaching assistant for several years in a primary school. Maybe you already have children or you're inviting a lot to your wedding. I'll be able to keep their attention during the group photos and relate to them (it helps that I'm a big kid myself!).
Hopefully when you come to meet me in our consultation, you'll see that i'm pretty easy going and laid back. You can talk about anything with me and if you're as geeky as me it'll be an added bonus! I love to chat about all things TV/Film/Video games!
