Let us start by saying that we LOVE what we do. Weddings are the most fantastic occasion. They are a wonderful family event that is just bursting with emotion and they are a joy to photograph. Each wedding is a hectic, exhilarating, whirlwind and amazing event, but the response we get from the couples we photograph are the greatest reward.
The challenge for the modern wedding photographer is no longer about just having pictures to put in an album. Today the challenge is to capture the essence of an occasion; to accurately and successfully document one of the most momentous celebrations in a couple's life. It is to provide a photographic record that not only immediately delights, but continues to delight for years to come.
Experience has shown us that trust is critical. Our style and approach is totally unobtrusive, not directing or dictating the day. Like a good waiter, who will fill your glass without you noticing, I aim to take my pictures by drawing as little attention to myself as possible. This is where experience and being prepared pay huge dividends. By understanding the structure of the ceremonies and by having researched the venues we are able to anticipate the shots in advance and can ensure that we are perfectly placed and ready to capture the moment.
Each image needs to be a beautiful composition in its own right but it must also record the essence of the moment. Many of the weddings we have documented are noisy, lively, bustling celebrations. They're filled with colour and life, warmth and joy and it's so vital to capture it all. I aim to capture for posterity the images that people remember; the glance to the side, the nervous smile, the natural beauty and those delicate finer touches that have been so long in the planning.
We are visual storytellers, We want everyone who looks at our photographs to enjoy them for what they are, but for each couple we want our photographs to spark even more wonderful memories.
