My photography is relaxed and reportage in style. I love to combine colour images with black and white images within an album so by choosing me you will get a mixture of both. I do take the main shots usually requested, such as group shots**, posed shots and traditional shots but overall I favour the reportage image. So by choosing me as your photographer your photographs would predominantly be of little fleeting glances and special moments from your day. I love to get to know my clients before their big day and I enjoy meeting for a cuppa and a chat or a walk around the venue to get a feel for the place.

In an attempt to make it easier for you (and me) I like to have an idea in my head before the day, of what you want.
If I can help with anything I will and I will personally make sure you always have a drink of something bubbly throughout this part!
If you have a list of photographs for your groups, such as names for me to call please send that over.
I usually follow this…. if no list is provided…
1. MAIN GROUP SHOT (everyone at wedding) followed by,
Smaller groups, such as….
2. Bride & Brides mum
3. Bride & Brides Dad
4. Bride, Mum & Dad
5. Bride, Groom, Mum & Dad (of bride) and children (if couple have any)
6. Adding on any grandparents & siblings
7. Adding on Children & partners
8. Groom & Grooms Mum
9. Groom & Grooms Dad
10. Groom, mum & Dad
11. Groom, Bride, Mum & Dad (of groom) & children (if couple have any)
12. Adding on any grandparents & siblings
13. Partners & children
14. Bride & Grooms Families all together
15. Bride & Brides Maids or ‘all the ladies’
16. Groom & Best man or ‘all male friends’
17. Bride & Groom with bridesmaids, groomsmen and close friends
18. Confetti Shot
It’s the only ‘structured’ part of the day… and essential but I try to do it as quickly as possible so you don’t get bored.
Obviously this takes up to an hour depending on how many images you want and how quickly your guests come when called.
In the summer I usually take all groups before your wedding breakfast and then take you as a couple out into the grounds (in good weather) or quiet areas of the venue (in bad weather) for couple shots in natural light as we have more hours of natural light and on a good day, ‘golden hour’.
In the winter if you want group shots and then couple shots taken in daylight, asking your venue for a longer time between ceremony and Wedding Breakfast might be required for me to fit in groups and couple shots outside in natural light ie, 1 hour is not enough for 20 group shots AND couple shots and time to let you actually speak to your guests!
Let me know if there are any additions you’d like (or mention on the day when I’ve run through the list) or any you would like to leave out.
To try to keep this running as smoothly as possible I request the assistance of one or two of either the bridal party or a family members who know both sides of the family and who can assist with group shots and group together family/friends on your photo list, a call sheet can be compiled as long as I get all your group requests one month before your wedding.
