My particular strength is creating strong, vibrant images that capture the spirit of your day. I am suited to adventure-loving couples who love the idea of having natural wedding photographs of real moments and real emotions, plus some creative photographs too.
I take pride in caring about every couple who choose me to photograph their wedding. I take pride in ensuring that their wedding day runs smoothly, and I take pride in ensuring their wedding daydreams are captured with my photography.
If this sounds like the kind of photographer you’re looking for, contact me today and see if I’m free for your wedding day.
Leah & Jake Tell Us About Their Wedding Day
Your journey starts with an initial consultation by Zoom or here at my studio near Sudbury in Suffolk. This allows me to fully introduce myself, find out more about your day and understand your photography requirements.
This is also a great time to have all of your questions answered, and I can also show you more of my work. The consultation can also help us to find out if we are the perfect fit for each other.
Once you’re ready to book me as your wedding photographer, I will send you a booking form to complete and a request for a £350 retainer. The date is then all yours.
In return, you will receive my Wedding Photography Guide, which provides you with lots of helpful tips to ensure a smooth experience for your wedding day.
A highly recommended addition is an engagement session. It’s the start of a great journey and you’ll also get used to being photographed by me.
As we get to know each other more I will create some amazing photographs of you both together.
You can choose a favourite location, your wedding venue or even a European city if you want to make things even more special for you.
The day arrives. I’ll be with you a couple of hours before your ceremony, or even earlier if you like, to start capturing your own unique wedding day story
I’ll capture it all – The laughter, the excitement, the make-up, the hairdressing, the Prosecco popping and the gift giving.
And of course there’s the details too; Your dress, your shoes, your jewellery, your purfume and much more!
If booking a second photographer, the boys will get the same treatment too!
At the house or the hotel we’ll capture both sides of your wedding story. The male grooming, fumbling with the ties, the fun, the beers, the possible chaos
Plus the quieter moments too. Tweaking of the speech, reactions to your card, time for reflection.
That special moment arrives – The bride and dad walking down the aisle, the reactions of the guests and that wonderful look from the groom
I’ll discretely capture the exchanging of vows, the rings going on your fingers, the readings and the moment the kisses his bride.
Then there’s the signing of the register, receiving the certificate and walking up the aisle together as one.
For your formal family photos, I will work on the list provided and give copies to your ushers to gather the groups and help speed things up.
With the formals out of the way, most of the photographs taken will be un-staged to capture your wedding day’s genuine moments and real emotions.
Away from your guests you can relax and enjoy your time together as the new Mr & Mrs. For many couples, this is their favourite part of the day.
Walking around your venue together, I’ll capture amazing photographs of you both in the most awesome locations
The photographs will be as natural and relaxed as the rest with a few semi-posed and creative photographs thrown in there too.
Some people may not enjoy giving them, but guests just love hearing them. Hearing the stories of how you got together and fell in love.
One of the best things about photographing speeches is capturing the way people react to them – The emotional mum, the excitable auntie or the look that you give when you may hear an embarrassing story
As the speeches come to a close, I’ll capture the toasts too.
After the cake-cutting complete and you’ve finished your first dance together, it’s time to party!
If you and your guests are still up dancing, then I’ll be around for a while to capture you all. No one gets left out…
The freestyler dancer, the surprisingly good guy dancer, the “This Is My Song” dancer, the crazy dancer, the Macarena dancer…
As the sun sets and day becomes night, the mood and atmosphere changes and everything just seems to feel far more intimate.
I absolutely love the night-time and the creative possibilities that it brings and if you’ve added extra coverage I guarantee you’re going to love it too.
Between the dancing, we’ll pop outside and capture some stunning, creative images of you both around the venue.
How do you feel when you see your own parent’s or grandparents album?Here’s an optional extra to preserve your own wedding day memories.
