How many times have I heard a prospective client say "We prefer the photos where people aren't looking at the camera and don't know you're there".
Wedding photography has changed over the years and I totally embrace this. No longer is it a series of staged, posed groups but rather a record of the day as it happens, naturally. I strongly believe that every wedding is different and experience has proven that. I treat my clients as I would want to be treated on my wedding day and I regularly work at some of Norfolk and East Anglia's top wedding venues who seem only too pleased to have me around. I don't boss people about, I'll take charge when it's needed but I don't really do serious. In a nutshell, I simply blend in with the day, let things progress naturally and let the story unfold as it should. Editorial and yet romantic.
We'll have a giggle along the way though, that's for sure...
You may think that wedding photography is just that, photography, but that's far from reality. On the day, I laugh and smile my way through, helping with the dress, adjusting buttonholes, running errands between the bridal prep and church when somebody's forgotten something, being children's entertainer, spending a few moments with Dad just before he gives his Daughter away, reassuring him and telling him that it's all gonna be ok. Whatever it takes to make your day even more amazing, oh and I'll take some cracking photos too!
No two clients have exactly the same thoughts, ideas, requirements and budgets, so although I can offer preset packages, they can all be totally changed and adapted to suit your needs. Using some of the finest manufacturers in the world, I can supply anything from personalised USB sticks full of your wedding images, up to the largest hand-made coffee table/storybook albums from top album manufacturers such as Graphistudio, based in Italy. Albums are designed and manufactured out of peak wedding season as this is when I'm shooting the weddings themselves. Wedding albums are bespoke and require my total attention, that way I can make sure they are nothing short of awesome.
Interested? Ok, no problem get in touch and tell me about your plans. We can then meet up for an informal consultation to discuss your ideas, you can view my sample albums and products. There is, of course, no hard sell tactics during the consultation but most clients book me there and then. I am generally booked anything from around 12-18 months in advance so I would advise you to get in contact as soon as possible.
To get an idea of costs, visit the Pricing page, but remember that I can tailor a wedding photography package to suit you, feel free to get in touch to discuss your ideas.
