No wedding is too big or too small or distance too far
When I started shooting weddings there was only one way to do it that made any sense to me. Photojournalists like stories and stories about people in particular and so documenting and telling the story of a wedding in this way seemed obvious and the most satisfying way to do it. I shoot 90% observational reportage usually starting from about 2 hours before the ceremony until after the first dance. I don’t direct or interfere or shoot a pre-determined shot list of cheesy poses, all you have to do is enjoy the day the way you imagined it.
I like to shoot about 8 family group shots of you and your closest family and friends, the kind of thing that Mum and Dad will like. I also recommend that we spend about 15 minutes or so on some portraits of just the two of you. I still shoot these is a relaxed and natural way so that they fit seamlessly into your album - don’t worry I won’t have you leaping over benches or peaking out from behind a tree. Unless of course bench leaping is a family tradition!
No wedding is too big or too small or distance too far - the smallest wedding I have photographed featured no guests and I acted as a witness as well as the photographer. The largest had over 400 guests and took place over 3 days.
