Creative Wedding Photography
I specialize mostly in wedding photography and my style leans more toward contemporary and creative but with a documentary approach when called for. I prefer to create moments by doing little setups then working and directing my couples. I make silly jokes to make my couples laugh at me or with me, the pictures come out looking so natural and the bonus is my couples enjoy the photoshoot.
To be as unobtrusive as possible
As creative as I am there are moments that really need to be untouched, truly much of a wedding day is like this. I’m ever mindful not only of my couple but guests as well. I try not to block any views or affect the wedding in any way if I can help it. For guests want to be the photographer no one could remember.
So many photographers are afraid to take charge especially when it comes to the family photos. When the time comes I do this well and without being bossy or rude, I continually banter with my group which gets great laughs and I get many compliments for this.
My approach to family pictures is first to capture the obvious, people in groups, portraits and all the usual kind of thing. Then I play, I get my subjects to mess around with each other, this relaxes everyone resulting in fun natural and incredible pictures!
An engagement shoot is a must, it is such a great way to get to know your photographer and also get great pictures of such a special time. Many of my couples use this opportunity to do a few fun pictures to be used in the save the date too!
Instead of a guest book!
I’ve had a few couples choose to have a portrait of themselves in a frame without glass. Guests sign directly on the portrait and the glass is put in later, this is one “guest book” that doesn’t end up in a drawer somewhere!
Going against the “norm”
Pictures don’t have to be boring, sure we do the must have pictures because they do have their place, after this its time to have a little fun and be creative, if this appeals to you then we will create magic together.
Corporate and event photography
I have a full compliment of portable lighting and portable backdrops. In most cases I’m able to shoot at your offices for most corporate work.
I’ve shot events from the very beginning, well over 10 years now so if you need an event photographer please contact me.
