Firstly, congratulations on deciding to make your love OFFICIAL!
All professional wedding photographers have their unique own style and approach to wedding photography. For me, I’ve always captured weddings in a natural and fun way with the odd twist! If you and your fabulous guests are happy and relaxed, the photographs will reflect this.
For the most part, I shoot in a documentary or reportage fashion and in this way I get to capture very real moments. It’s very often those fleeting moments captured, the photographs that you didn’t know were being taken, are the ones that mean the most.
When it comes to the romantic side of things or the formal group shots, I still keep things natural and the group shots take no longer than 10 minutes. Your guests will be there because they love you and want to spend quality time with you, reminisce, laugh and chat on what’ll be a never-to-be-forgotten time in your life and the more time there is for this, the better. The ‘couples’ shots are captured in a way that feels like we’re going for a relaxed wander and spontaneously find the perfect spots to take some gorgeous photographs of you both. Again, keeping things natural brings out the best in everyone and I never ask anyone to smile. The whole process should be done in a way that you will be anyway!
After your wedding you are invited back to the studio to view your images and chose the ones you would like in your album. Again the kettle is always on and I never tire of seeing the look on couples faces as they re-live their wedding day.
All weddings are unique and our beautiful hand-made designed albums are created in such a way that they always do a couple’s day justice.
We are a husband and wife team – I love to capture the day (and chat!) and Jacky equally loves going to work on creating the perfect bespoke album with the pictures of your choice. We make that every album reflect the couples day perfectly and it is only then your album goes to print by THE UK’s award-winning leading lab who we’ve built a great working relationship with for over 15 years. Each step of the way needs to be taken with care but also with a smile and it’s for that reason I feel that we get so many lovely comments and messages from our couples – it’s good for the soul !
Whether or not you have set a date for YOUR Big Day, you are very welcome to come and visit our photography studio in Hertford (there’s ample free parking), have a browse through our extensive selection of real life wedding albums and have a cuppa! Ours are complete wedding albums from many of the stunning local wedding venues including Fanhams Hall Hotel, Hanbury Manor Hotel and Country Club, St Michael’s Manor, Brocket Hall, Essendon Golf Club, to name just a few.
I’m also a destination wedding photographer and have been fortunate enough to capture weddings in Italy, France and Ireland – as long as there’s a couple in love, along with their amazing friends and family I’m there!
If couples do come for a chat I never ask them if they’d like to chose me to capture their Special Day. It’s a decision that should be given consideration as your wedding photographer will play a very personal and inclusive part of your day. so they should be someone you’d like to invite to your wedding anyway !
If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact me and I’ll be of whatever help I can be.
