A JOURNALISTIC APPROACH.
I'M HERE TO TELL YOUR STORY, CAPTURE THE MOMENTS & MAKE THE EXPERIENCE MAGICAL WHILST DOING SO.
I want to approach your wedding day with the mindset that someone one day can look at the photographs and not only know what happened that day, but also, how it felt to be there. After all, you want to take photographs that mean something to the people who are in them.
HOW I PLAN TO ACHIEVE THIS
I will be there to see the story unfold in front of my camera lens.
I will record things that you probably wont see or things you do see that are memorable. Aunty Joan that ate all the pigs in a blanket, Uncle Jim that took of his tie on the dance floor and wore it on his head.
These moments may seem random, they may not seem memorable but when you look back 10 years from now you will cherish the moments that happened on the day, you will love the photos running through the rain (even though you hated that it was raining) Everything is important.
Let me make it that much more important by seeing it, capturing it & doing so beautifully.
Telling your story creatively but honestly.
This Groom got ready at his dad's place where his dad fixes up old cars & when I got there he said, "I'm not really sure where you're gonna find a good spot to photograph us"
Well, EXACTLY. I'm not trying to create something you're not, I am going to record where you are, exactly the way it is.
So, We walked outside to the washing line / back of the garage and took some photo's against this old garage. To me, this is ideal because one day he wont look back and see images of him getting ready with a white plain wall & probably not even remember where it was, but instead he will look at these and remember it for the way it was.
Honesty is creativity.
Creating beautiful work that's honest, well that's the fun part.
IT'S ABOUT YOU
I struggle to understand anyone in this industry who feels the photo's they take are for them. NO this is for YOU! This is why I bring along a SHOT LIST & YOUR timeline so I know what you want and when you want it !!
This helps me give you the photos you want and also make the best of every moment.
