I specialise in unobtrusive, documentary style photography for informal, relaxed Lake District weddings. I aim to capture the story of your day as it actually happens, together with some natural portraits that involve the minimum of direction, posing and disruption to the flow of your special day.
Before your wedding day, I'll talk with you about what you want from your wedding photography, to make sure you'll get the pictures you want from your special day. While my main priority will normally be documenting the day as it unfolds, I'll also capture any details, group shots and portraits that you'd like too.
After the day, I'll edit your images in a natural, timeless way to bring out the best of your wedding day, without effects and filters that may look dated in years to come.
The vast majority of pictures I deliver from a wedding are usually 'in the moment' photos documenting the story of the day as it unfolds, from getting ready until dancing the night away. Often, you and your guests will be unaware of these photos being taken, though I may occasionally get more involved to suggest how a moment might be captured at it's best.
Group portraits of family, wedding party and friends continue to be an important part of most peoples' wedding day, so it's no problem if you'd like some too. I love taking group shots and place the emphasis on making it a fun experience for you and your guests, while getting the shots you've requested as smoothly and quickly as possible.
Don't worry if you don't feel comfortable in front of the camera - you're in good company as most of us feel the same way! There's no need to worry though as I'll talk things through with you beforehand and then help you to relax and enjoy the experience on the day, while capturing some beautiful, natural portraits without lots of posing and direction.
At each stage of your wedding, I'm ready to capture shots of all the little details that make your wedding so special and unique to you. I'll prioritise the shots that are most important to you and get them while you're getting ready or during the in-between moments as you move from one part of your day to another, so I'm there to capture the action as it happens.
