Always the photographer and never the bride!
I have over 25 years experience in Wedding Photography, starting out as my father's wedding assistant at the age of twelve. Over the years my skills and love of wedding photography have developed and I now offer a friendly, professional, Shropshire based, wedding service of my own.
I have always loved weddings, and am particularly drawn to the more traditional style of photography, however, I also enjoy interspersing these traditional images with a more modern and relaxed reportage style. This is achieved by working in conjunction with a second photographer, Christopher Raw, who has a special affinity with the reportage style.
Friendliness is key in my approach to weddings. Many guests and often the bride and groom can find it difficult to relax in front of a camera, especially on such an important day. By getting to know the bride and groom before the wedding, and by being happy and relaxed myself on the big day, I find that I enjoy helping the bride, the groom and their guests to relax and enjoy the experience.
Pre-wedding meetings at the venue are always advisable, as inspiration for many shots come from the surroundings. On the wedding day I enjoy learning as many guests names as possible as this makes arranging group shots so much easier.
Together Chris and I are happy to cover all aspects of the day, from make-up, to the last waltz, as this helps to create a pictorial record of the day as a whole. We can provide albums and/or picture-books to suit your requirements. We also provide all images on CD and unlike many photographers we offer a joint copyright, which allows you to have copy prints produced at your leisure and at a cost to suit your budget.
Please feel free to contact me and tell me about your plans for the big day. we would love to be part of it!
