"You made us feel so relaxed, we enjoyed the whole experience "

This is the feedback I so often receive from my clients and is my overall aim.

Preparing for a wedding can be a stressful task full of emotions, and if the couple are stressed on the day it may translate into the photography. I ensure that my clients are as relaxed as possible by agreeing beforehand their wishes and expectations, enabling me to capture the laughter and the fun of the day, in a story of relaxed and beautiful photographs.

Before the day I prepare and plan, often visiting the venue to select the best locations for photographs. Couples sometimes have ideas of their own and we can work on this together.

On the morning of the Wedding I begin at the bride's house, taking informal 'behind-the-scene' shots - the dress hanging up, new shoes unworn, bouquets of flowers.... the little details that make the day unique. I then catch up with the lads at the ceremony venue and capturing final preparations.

After the Ceremony and group shots. I blend into the background as much as possible, capturing the guests and bridal party at their most natural and relaxed.

As one of the most important events in the couple's lives, I delight in giving them a happy, lasting memories for so many years to come.
