Your wedding day is months if not years in the planning, and once the day comes around you want to enjoy it without stress and worry about anything. Being the wedding photographer on your special day is a big responsibility and requires a great deal of trust from the bride and groom. After all, once the wedding has come and gone, and the tan from the honeymoon faded, the wedding photographs reflect the special moments of the day and the little details that are often forgotten as years pass by.
So if there is so much pressure, just who would want to be a wedding photographer?! The truth is, that with the responsibility comes great satisfaction and reward. Firstly, being allowed to be a part of a wedding day is a great honour, but to do our job well we are barely noticed on the day. We try to be in the right places at the right times and capture lots of photographs that tell a story, and reflect the joy and emotion of the day.
Ultimately we spend time getting to know the bride and groom well before we photograph the wedding, in order to find out exactly what they want from us, and to set expectations for them of how things run on the day. There isn’t time to be wasted on the wedding day itself, so preparation time is well spent to ensure that we capture all the photographs you want with minimal input at the time.
Whilst the formal family and group pictures are a norm and wanted by most couples, our style is far more natural, and often the best photographs are the ‘stolen’ moments captured when people do not realise a photograph is being taken.
We would love to talk to you about your wedding day and requirements, and can give you advice and wedding photography options without any obligation. Get in contact or have a look at our wedding photography packages.
