Memories that last a lifetime
The first thing to remember, this is your big day no one else's. With that in mind
I work mainly as a Documentary Wedding Photographer, with minimal interruption to your day.
That doesn't mean there will not be any posing at all, quite the opposite it's about you and what you wish to take away as memories from the day. Below are some of the typical posed shots we will capture on the day, for the rest, I'll capture the day naturally as moments happen.
Pre-wedding shoot - this is included with all my packages and is quite often the first time we will meet in person. In a location of your choice, we can grab a brew and have a chat before heading out to take some photos. This is a great way of getting you used to the camera and what to expect on the big day. By the time you get to the all-important just married photos, you'll be all set!
The confetti shot - usually takes place just after leaving the ceremony. Depending on the venue there is a number of ways to stage this resulting in some beautiful photos. This usually includes a guest briefing on how to actually throw confetti. After all, it looks cute, but doesn't taste too nice if you get a mouthful!
The group photographs - In our industry, this is often also called 'herding cats' typically I will 'recruit' the Best Man or wedding party member with the loudest voice to help with some much-needed crowd control. I strive to accomplish these in the most efficient way possible so that you, and your guests can continue to enjoy the day.
The all-important just married photos - A great term coined by my photographic mentor and close friend. After the rush of the morning getting ready, the ceremony and your nearest and dearest congratulating you, this is the first real chance for you and your newlywed partner to actually have a moment together to take in the day so far. Similar to what we did during your Pre-Wedding shoot we will go to a location on route to the Reception venue or on the grounds of the venue if the day is hosted all at one location.
Cutting the cake - This comes around quicker than you would ever imagine on the day. Once the cake is in position, usually in the centre of the dance floor, once we have taken the photographs, I will then invite the guests up to take their own pictures before starting a count down to cut the cake.
The first dance - This is your moment, you do your thing and I'll capture the memories for you, no interruptions needed.
Now that doesn't sound all that bad, does it?
