Not all weddings are the same, and not all wedding photographers are the same. When it comes to wedding photography the style of photographs that you want will impact how your wedding photographer works with you on your day. I would describe my style as predominantly relaxed wedding photography.

Relaxed wedding photography is largely documentary in approach; that means that I will document your day in photographs as it unfolds. I will put more emphasis in to capturing the moments, emotions and feeling of your day, rather than setting up specific shots from a preordained list. Some words that I use to describe my wedding photography style include:

  • Colourful
  • Fun
  • Candid
  • Authentic
  • Natural
  • Unposed
  • Real

I keep my style consistent across the images of the day; but that doesn’t mean that I am rigid with my approach to photographing a wedding. Not all weddings are the same, not all couples and families want the same from their photographs. After booking me and in the lead up to your wedding I will take time to understand exactly what you want from your wedding photos. I see my job very much as a collaboration between the three of us. When I understand what you want your wedding photos to be like, I can provide you with guidance and planning tips that shape your day to ensure that you are delighted with your final selection of images.

Ensuring a relaxed vibe on your wedding day begins with making sure that I fit with you as a couple. Before my clients even commit to booking me I like to meet up, either in person over drinks or via a video call online. It’s an opportunity for you to see what I am like as a person – documenting your wedding means that I will be with you for an extended period of time on a really important day in your life – you have to know and like who I am as a person!

Once couples decide to book me I begin by understanding exactly how your day is planned. I know that couples put a lot of time and effort in to planning a wedding day, so my primary intention is to work as unobtrusively as possible. About 6 weeks before your wedding I send my clients an online questionnaire to complete. The questionnaire has been designed to capture all the logistical details of the day. Then one month before your wedding day I meet up with my clients (usually over drinks and snacks at a convenient location to all of us) to go through the plan for the day. It’s a great opportunity for everyone to ask questions. I find that working in this way ensures that when the wedding day comes, my clients are super chilled out, safe in the knowledge that I know exactly what to do.

My primary objective as a wedding photographer is to give you an experience that you love and create images that you are delighted with. I am super happy when I read reviews from previous clients that reflect exactly what I have set out to do. If you want relaxed wedding photography and are thinking of booking me to photograph your wedding, be sure to read what other people say after working with me and get in touch.
