WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY ?
As a creative and documentary wedding photographer based in the Midlands (Hinckley, Leicestershire) I have developed my personal style of wedding photography over the 12 years I have had the privilege of it being my full time profession. Relaxed, journalistic, documentary and alternative are many words used to describe my style of work, I have always called it photography with soul.
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO PHOTOGRAPHING A WEDDING ?
I always shoot honest and emotive images, ones that take you back to the feelings you had at that moment the shutter clicked. A wedding is a celebration and a huge party - this is what I want to document and shoot from the inside out. You can never feel the vibe if you are not surrounded by it. This does not mean I will be in the way, in fact its usually the opposite and you will wonder where I took certain shots from as i wasn't in view. Wedding photography is a delicate blend of knowing when to step into the action and shoot out and then knowing when to step back and shoot in - to me it's a 'gut instinct' after so many years loving what I do, so again to me it is photography with soul.
ETHOS WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT ?
Myself and Victoria have been working in the creative photography industry for over 25 years combined, thats a long time and well over 12,000 professional shoots. We still have the same passion and drive to improve and most importantly do our very best for our clients. This starts from the initial contact all the way through to after the wedding. Many of our clients have become close friends and I believe it is this close connection with our clients that brings out the very best in them and their images on their wedding day.
SO WHAT DOES DOCUMENTARY OR JOURNALISTIC PHOTOGRAPHY ACTUALLY MEAN ?
As the name suggests it is documenting the day and recording the events that actually happen, seeing the fun, the laughter and the real tears of joy. There are no set up fake shots that just don't reflect the day at all. However this does not mean that you are not able to have posed shots or more formal group shots. I photograph real weddings and work with every couple to blend as much, or as little of the posed images into the wedding coverage.
