WHAT I DO
I deliver amazing photos that you’re going to treasure forever. I’m going to blend into the background and then strike at exactly the right moment. I’ll be capturing a ton of things you’re too wrapped up in the moment to even see, but, that will make you chuckle or cry when you’re flicking through your album.
Oh, but, it’s so much more than that! I’ll be your friend for the day; your wedding planning advisor; drinking buddy (before the day, guys, I am a lightweight and we don’t want 800 wonky photos of my feet now); chief dress fluffer; drink/bouquet/make-up fetcher; speech laugher (my Mum does this thing where she laughs at bad jokes on TV because she feels bad for the comedian, it’s contagious, I will definitely laugh to fill up any awkward pauses); buttonhole expert; confetti choreographer; general calming presence.
I’ve been doing this a long time now and what I’ve learned is that being a wonderful wedding photographer is a balancing act. I obviously always have my mind on how to get the best shot and an eye out for touching moments, beautiful locations and lighting. But, I am not going to take over your wedding, this isn’t the Hannah Mia show, and as much as I’m sure we’re going to be the best of friends, you should not be spending more than half an hour focused on photos during your wedding day. I want to add to that joy, enable it to happen more smoothly and record it for you relive over and over.
