Congratulations on your engagement! If you have just begun your search for a photographer I know it can be difficult differentiating between one photographer and another, so I have included a few pointers to help you make an informed decision.

Photographic Style
Photographic styles range between traditional posed photography and natural documentary images. I recommend looking at a couple of whole weddings before making a decision on what suits you best as this is the most realistic representation of a photographer's work. My photographic style combines elements of both. Primarily I aim to capture the excitement and emotion of the day through a series of natural, spontaneous images. However, I am also inspired by creating beautiful, flattering images of the bride & groom which make the most of your chosen venue.

Quality of Equipment
High quality cameras and lenses are crucial in terms of producing the most creative natural-light photography and allow the photographer to shoot in low light without flash to preserve the ambience and atmosphere of the venue. They also allow 'shallow depth of field' to creatively blur out backgrounds. I use Nikon equipment which gives me top quality consistent images.

Ability to 'seize the moment"
No matter how expensive the equipment, if the photographer is slow off the mark they will miss crucial moments. Good reportage photography is dependent on an instinctive ability to be in the right place at the right time and know just when to press the shutter. Working quickly and capturing the moment is the key. I love the fast-paced nature of wedding photographer and am driven to capture those amusing, romantic or significant moments that will be meaningful to you in the future.

Personality
By glancing through a whole wedding it should be apparent how comfortable the guests were with the photographer. However, a meeting with the photographer is essential so you can guage whether he or she will fit in with you and your guests on your Big Day. A friendly, relaxed approach and an ability to put you at ease is essential.

Quantity & Quality of Photos
Your photos will be taken in RAW format rather than JPEG in order to give you highest quality file available. Depending on the amount of time I am booked for you will get on average between 300- 600 images on your DVD. These images will all be colour corrected and 'Copyright Free' which means that you can get them printed wherever and whenever you like without having to go through me. To show you off to your best all of the 'couple' pictures of the Bride and Groom shall be retouched.

After browsing through my
galleries, if you feel my style may be what you are looking for please do not hesitate to call me for a chat about your requirements. Alternatively you can leave a message through the contact page.

I shall look forward to hearing from you.
