I’ve collected some snippets from each part of the day from
various weddings to give you a little insight into my work and style.
Grab a cuppa, get comfy and have a little scroll :-)
My Top Tips
It’s never too early to start with you prep. Especially if you’re wanting those robe shots with your bridal party, getting into the dress/suits shots, a loved one’s reaction, first looks and them stunning bride/groom portraits.
A playlist with all your favourite upbeat songs to set the vibe and keep those nerves at bay. Ask your MUA to set up near a window, the natural light is amazing for make up photos and its the best to match to skin tones etc. Ring lights are great but you just can’t beat natural. Don’t be last in the chair for your MUA or Hair stylist - this happened at my wedding and it ran late which meant I didn’t get chance for bridal portraits (SAD FACE) that make up will not budge and they can always add touch ups.
Have those BIG little things like jewellery, invites, perfume, dress, SHOES ( I may get waaaay too excited over these ) and anything special to you, all in one area ready for me to photograph when I arrive.
I show mainly couples portraits on my social media because I just love them!! it’s my favourite part of your day (other than the ceremony) its the first chance you actually get time as a couple on your own for a brief moment… and they’re normally the WOW showstopper ones you’ll print off and adorn your home with.
Usually, these portraits happen just after the ceremony. Of course you’ll want to have a drink and a mingle first, then we'll get your group shots done (before the bridal party gets tipsy and ties and hats come off) , then I'll steal you away for some portraits for about 20- 30 minutes. If you’re wanting to really explore your location and these shots are really important to you then by all means we can take longer, we can discuss timelines when we meet up prior to the wedding. I might grab you again around sunset time for another 15-20 minutes for them dreeeeammmy golden light photos.
My Top Tips
Remember to bring some flat easy to put on shoes if you’re wanting to get the most of your venues grounds. (Also, we can’t have those beautiful bridal shoes getting stuck in the lawn)
The nuptials, the details and everything in between.
Or this moment
With a bride and her father, when he see's her for the first time.
I’ve always wholeheartedly LOVED weddings! The anticipation and butterflies when you’re getting ready, the look in your lovers eyes when they first see you, the emotional tears from parents and friends when you say I DO, the happy tears, the tiny cake thief's (with it all around their chops), the first dance you’ll take together as a newly married couple. I’ll be there to capture all the key moments of your day to all the little things that you’ll struggle to remember…because to me, it all matters.
I love the magic of photography. Capturing emotion, intimate connection and natural, funny moments
that will make you smile every time you look at them, or make your heart skip a beat when you remember how you felt.
Take a look At this sweet moment, I was capturing photos of a bride with her Grandpa. When, all of a sudden, he takes her hand and passes her something. It was her late grandmothers engagement ring and he wanted her to have it on her special day.
It's party time!
