AWESOME CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHS
REAL MOMENTS + PORTRAITS
Creative portraits are the 1% of a wedding day, the 1% of the photos that you look at and say ‘that’s going on my wall’. A lot of my couples book me for this very reason. It is also one of the key elements I am known for and of course for winning countless awards for this niche.
Please remember I am a documentary photographer at heart and as much as I love creative portraits they are a very small part of the overall wedding day. Read more about why I love being a Documentary Wedding Photographer.
I LOVE PORTRAITS
Every wedding or Elopement has time for couple portraits, I love to capture portraits after the group shots and its just me, you and your partner. This is a great time to create some beautiful natural light images and of course take 10-20 minutes to yourselves away from everyone else. I love to have a chat, create laughter with jokes and stories and get the most out of your portraits by making you as relaxed as possible which comes across really natural in the photographs.
Creative lighting is invaluable to the photography I provide. Using coloured gels and light modifiers to place light where I want it or even remove light for certain desired effect is a crucial skill. These skills allow me to create amazing creative portraits or EPICS as I like to call them. A lot of my creative portraits are taking during the gap before the reception starts, however, I can also create Epic portraits anytime and anywhere. My only limitation is my imagination. Typically I take 20 minutes of your time during this part of the day.
POSING LIKE A PRO
I wish I had a £1 for every time I’ve heard a bride or groom say ‘Im no good in front of a camera’. Just look at all the photographs on my website and Im sure they all said that. During your portrait session I will show you what I call the Posing Framework. This framework is 5 very quick poses and takes 20 seconds to learn. You will feel like a pro straight away. Once we have the basic poses in play I then create natural moments by telling jokes, or just asking questions. The key thing is to create natural photographs.
