I offer a blend of formal and informal wedding photography – never stuffy or rigid.
You and your guests need to be relaxed, with faces full of happiness. I have the experience to make sure that you are all in the best frame of mind to deliver the very best photographs possible.
I want to do everything to remove any hint of stress you may have and to leave you with memories that will last a lifetime. That’s why I do this job. I love nothing better than seeing the smiles on the faces of my couples when they see the finished product and their eyes well up. That’s when I know… that’s why I do this!
Although I have had the honour to work at incredible wedding venues all over the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire – I am also happy to travel further afield to ensure your wedding day has the best photography possible.
How I plan for your big day
I like to be very organised when it comes to my planning – I am ex-Army after all! I have learned from many years of experience as a wedding photographer that when you plan and prepare – if things don’t run to schedule, it doesn’t matter, because you know what you are doing.
After our initial chats etc, one month before the day itself, I like to have a Zoom meeting so that we can run through the day. I also arrange a location meeting where we can survey the site and plan for all the best shots. I like to have a timetable for the day’s events. The reason? Well, if you tell me that the father’s first look at his daughter and her dress is important – I need to make sure you have allocated enough time! Once I know what you want to happen and when we can have a walk-through of the day’s events and of the venue itself. This allows me to know what will happen and where. There is an obvious benefit to this – in so far as – it allows me to know where the best photographs will be! I won’t just turn up and wander around hoping to find somewhere nice – I’ll know!
Equally, I always turn up early and stay until I have done my job. I don’t clock watch or limit my time in anyway. I am here to make your day as special as possible. That’s what matters to me and why I like to plan and prepare!
