If I had to define my style I would say that I am a lifestyle wedding photgrapher.

The Knot wedding planning site describes a lifstyle wedding photography as "Photojournalism redifined, it`s candid with some direction and styling with an approachable feel and relaxed result.

I shoot with 3 keywords in my mind, fun, romantic and emotional.

My take on it is that it should tell the story of your wedding day in pictures in colour and black and white. I love to immerse myself in the day and employ my well-developed people skills to bond with your wedding guests, very often I will find myself being treated as another guest. The brief bonds that are formed allow me to photograph the camera shy and wary, capturing authentic meaningful photographs.

I love looking at and capturing classic wedding photographs; Stunning bridal portraits, memorable group photographs and creative bride and groom photos. These type of photographs often need some organisation to make them happen but it does not need to be a painful experience for you or your guests. Pre -wedding meetings and careful shoot planning ensure that I am able to capture these photographs with the minimum of fuss.
