You want your wedding photos to reflect you: Creative, quirky, complex, full of layers, and worth a linger

Wedding pictures after wedding pictures flash by and it’s become a bit of a blur.  A whirl of brown vintage filters and silhouetted figures reflected in a puddle. They’re all lovely of course, except lovely doesn’t describe what you’re looking for.  Rather than idealised, you want real life; rather than sanitised, you want warts and all.  Not literally of course, but you don’t want what the wedding industry tells you that you should want.  You view your big day as a celebration of life at a wedding, rather than a showcase of pretty things. You want photos that, well…that don’t look like typical wedding photography.

Unposed Wedding Reportage

Thank you for spending a whole magical day with us and for taking such beautiful pictures!  I’m nearly as glad that Enric found you on the internet as I am that I found him on the dance floor! Sophie and Enric

Thank you so much for capturing what was the best day of our lives so perfectly, and letting us relive the moments, emotions, and funny stories from the day so vividly. Jayne and Gib

Wedding Slideshows

Warning: Has music.  I won’t boss you around, force you to smile, when to fake kiss.  Just relax and be yourselves.  Here’s an example of my take on wedding reportage.  They’re unguarded, candid moments full of connections, humour and whatever moments and emotions spring up on the day.

 

Not a wedding photographer

Think of me as a wedding guest.  One that’s relaxed, cool and above-average looking.  I mingle, chat, take pictures.
I absolutely love weddings – not because of grand venues, or decorations and I’m not really into shoes that much. I know you two lovebirds are bloody important, as are the folks that you’ve chosen to be with you on your special day. Nope, I love weddings because magic happens when people gather. People – the connections, the relationships, the individual quirks that they bring, all that good stuff magnified under a terrific occasion that is your wedding day. I seek compelling moments in frames; from the nuanced and complex, to the simple but elegant, looking beyond the obvious because I believe it’s the parts of the day that you missed, that you’ll want to remember most.

A Wedding in Devon

Fiona + Freddie If you've read any of my previous wedding blog posts, you can correctly assume I'm not really one for putting details into writing. It's often a struggle for me, as I think wedding celebrations are all about, well, they're all about celebrations - not...

Boat Wedding in London

Sophie and Enric got married at Stoke Newington town hall, had canapes in the park, and celebrated on a steamer boat along the Thames.  Those are the parts of the sum but the whole was so much more: I sometimes need to be reminded of how great my home city is.  London...
