How we do it...our style
Gorgeousness Guaranteed! We have a strong artistic style, developed from many years experience of photographing people professionally. It is influenced by our life experiences too, from our interests in everything from music, travel, the arts and nature. We hope that you find a connection with our style of photography, and that photography is important to you – we are not copycat photographers. We strive to produce something valuable, creative and unique for every client. If you appreciate great imagery then be prepared and excited to be part of that process. Let’s Work Together Your wedding is important. To you, to your family and friends and to ourselves. Julie and I shoot every wedding together, we blend in – often mistaken for just another family member or guest. We want to create a set of beautiful photos that tell the story of your wedding day. We have a distinct style that combines artistic portraiture with documentary style shooting that will capture intimate moments and tiny details. We would love to meet you, chat about your wedding day plans and get to know each other a little better. Start with sending a request on our contact form at the bottom of the page. Don’t Get Caught Up In The Jargon When you begin searching for the person you will trust to capture the memories of your wedding day, you will see labels such as; vintage, photojournalist, alternative and fine art to describe various styles of photography. In our experience, a good professional wedding photographer will adapt a selection of these styles. Your wedding day will be a wonderful journey through a range of emotions, events and settings and we will be there to capture gorgeous images throughout; adapting to the theme, colour palette and moods. Just as every wedding is different, every couple is different too, we aim to reflect your personalities in our coverage of your day. Choose a wedding photographer you connect with, meet with them and trust them to allow you to enjoy your wedding day – no labels or jargon required!
Be prepared…your preWedding Photoshoot
Yet more gorgeousness… An unusual, yet essential part of all our wedding packages is the complimentary preWedding photoshoot experience. This is FUN! Trust me. We usually meet at an outdoor location, a beach, an urban setting, a park, on a mountain, etc. We take some time getting to know one another whilst taking some relaxed, informal photos. This usually happens about a month before your wedding day and is an ideal time to chat about your final plans. It also puts everyone more at ease with the idea of being photographed – so the wedding day experience can be more enjoyable. Everyone loves their preWedding shoot and the photographs too! You will get the opportunity to choose your favourite image for us to print and mount, we then bring it along to your venue where you can ask your guests to sign it as a memento. Your favourites are included with your album package, but those of you on a digital package will have the opportunity to buy the collection.
How much will it cost?
What will it cost you for this level of gorgeousness?
