I will bring my same high level of enthusiasm to every event and I look forward to recording it beautifully for you. Here are the most common types of weddings that I photograph.
When you know exactly want you want - and have the time to devote to it. DIY weddings often have a strong desire for a casual and easy-going day...or series of days - and that's great. But it's also great to appreciate that the most causal of days often requires the most careful planning and attention to detail...
You want people to assemble and mingle, witness your special ceremony, and participate in the celebrations and shenanigans. You've thought of all the important stuff - your venue - bathroom facilities - catering of food and drink - seating....Your inclement weather options. And what's happening at the every end..are people staying on?
To fit with your theme, you probably want a more casual style of photography with lots of moments, details of your planning efforts, your family and friends enjoying themselves. Importantly though, think about devoting some quality time to a few special 'official' portraits - especially of family rather than relying just on a fully candid coverage.
The likelihood of everyone in your family 'just happening' to all be hanging out in a way that's going to suit the camera is minimal. Given a little time we can make some truly beautiful portraits to go alongside the moments and rituals of your gorgeous day.
Time of day and weather. One, you do have control over - time of day. If you're looking at summer, you want to be on that beach as late in the afternoon as possible, and around dinner time - a lot of people have gone home - giving you that bit more privacy.
It's also about the light at that time of day. Check out which way the sun is setting at and discuss that with us when you're planning to define an area for the ceremony. Shade will be all important for many guests and great planners turn this into a wonderfully decorative opportunity with white umbrellas.
Beach weddings and destination weddings benefit from a rally well-planned schedule as the all-pervasive feeling of time slowed down means important portraits with family and friends can end up being rushed
