REAL MOMENTS + PORTRAITS

As a documentary photographer I love nothing more than genuine, unposed emotions, expressions and moments along with gorgeous couple portraits. Real photographs and Real awesomeness.

On a wedding day I work very hard to capture both the real moments and awesome couple portraits with a good helping of fun. You may also like to read about how I take creative bride and groom portraits here.

MY APPROACH

There is a reason I use the motto FUN + NATURAL + CREATIVE = AWESOME. This is how I approach every wedding. I capture your entire day in a natural documentary style, allowing you and your guests to be yourselves with zero awkwardness or cheesy posing. Allowing your day to unfold in a very natural and relaxed manor.

REAL EMOTION AND AWESOMENESS

Throughout your day I will be looking for elements of fun such as people laughing, flying headfirst through giant Jenga bricks or jumping through the air, no matter the situation I love to document fun and laughter. I always incorporate elements of fun into your couple portraits also, so they reflect your personalities and let’s face it, no one wants stiff awkward portraits. The more fun the better I say!

Now for the glitz and glamour; The Creativity. As you will see throughout my website and the many countless awards I have won; I love to get creative with my photography. Reflections, silhouettes, complimentary colour balances and so much more including a good helping of off-camera flash techniques. Utilising a large wealth of knowledge including lighting skills allows me to look at a potential photograph in a very different way to everyone else. Adding my creativity to elements of Fun and natural unposed emotions and expressions create the perfect trifecta of awesomeness. Capturing these elements throughout your entire day really tells your whole story.

FUN + NATURAL + CREATIVE = AWESOME

IM A STEALTH NINJA

So how do I capture emotions, moments and expressions without guests being aware of me? First of all I love to chat with guests, family or whoever else may be there throughout the day, this really helps to put everyone at ease and create that part of the family feeling which in turn helps to create more relaxed and natural photographs. Secondly the cameras which I use are completely silent. I can be stood 2 inches from a guests ear photographing over their shoulder and they don’t even know I’m there. Having this ability really helps to capture moments you would otherwise lose by the subjects hearing the camera.

Having the ability to photograph silently is the difference between awesome moments and not getting the moment right. As soon as guests hear the camera they become aware of it and act different and tense up a lot of the time. Stealth mode as I like to call it allows me to capture everything that’s going on without any awareness.
