HOW DO YOU APPROACH PHOTOGRAPHING A WEDDING?
My approach is friendly yet low key, I simply wish to provide an honest and emotive pictorial record of the day. I have photographed many different type of weddings, and the one thing that all the brides and grooms have in common is the desire to ‘enjoy the day’. Whilst they do require good photography, they also want to spend as much time as possible with close family and friends to make the memories that are worth capturing.
This approach is sometimes known as wedding photojournalism, reportage or documentary, you can search online for “Documentary wedding photography” to find out more. As a medium, photography has yet to be surpassed in its ability to freeze a moment in time and transport you back when viewing the image in years to come. It is this timelessness that I endeavour to incorporate in my approach to wedding photography.
WILL THERE BE ANY POSED PHOTOGRAPHY?
These are at your discretion, I am happy to arrange a handful of group photographs of close family and friends and a few portraits of just the two of you to utilise the surroundings. They do not need to take up too much time, allowing you to enjoy the company of your guests for the vast majority of the day.
WHEN DO WE GET TO SEE OUR PHOTOGRAPHS?
Due to the bespoke nature of your photographs and the great care taken to individually post process each image to a professional standard I do ask that you allow four to six weeks for the delivery of your images.
WILL THE PHOTOGRAPHS BE IN COLOUR OR BLACK & WHITE?
There will be a good mix between colour and black & white images, the proportion of which is dictated by the conditions of the day. If there was an abundance of good natural light that compliments skin tones, then you will generally speaking have slightly more colour in your collection. More black & white will be utilised if the artificial ambient light has a strong colour cast, or if the scene has strong colours that distracts from the subject matter. However if you have a preference one way or another, you can let me know during the booking process.
DO YOU JUST PROVIDE EAST MIDLANDS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY OR DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes, I am very happy to travel throughout the whole of the United Kingdom and overseas, if scheduling permits. Travel expenses are included unless overnight accommodation if deemed advisable due to distance or time, international destinations are charged at cost.
DO YOU HAVE A BACK UP PLAN IF YOU ARE ILL ON THE DAY?
Rest assured the situation would have to be very serious for me not to be able to photograph a wedding. Though if the need arises I am part of a massive network of photographers who all agree to cover for each other.
DO YOU WORK ALONE?
I generally photograph weddings solo, simply because I feel it provides for a more natural and pleasing perspective, plus you will not feel like you are surrounded by the paparazzi all day. I receive a lot of compliments from past clients praising my ability to get the photographs of those special moments without them realising I was there. However if logistics prevent this singular approach then I am happy to source a second photographer for your wedding, though this will incur an additional fee.
CAN WE MEET YOU IN PERSON?
Yes of course, you are more than welcome to arrange a personal meeting or schedule a video call. Alternatively, you are equally welcome to ask me any further questions over email or telephone.
