The wonderful thing about photographing over 200 weddings is being able to be part of so many special moments, seeing lots little ways couples come up with to make their day special and developing ways to capture them better. Here, my aim is to share those stories with you to give you an insight into how I work to get to know couples and capture moments they will tell stories about in the years to come.

Wedding image of the day – Bridal Prep

By |September 28th, 2019|Categories: Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

Being a wedding photographer, you tend to adopt different approaches throughout the day. Jolly and cheerful to arrange the group shots after the ceremony. When people are getting ready, I tend to keep quiet. Many people have a lot to think about. Then I get to capture quiet moments like this.

Wedding image of the day – The wedding dress

By |February 23rd, 2019|Categories: Reportage Wedding Photographer, Roffey Park Institute|Tags: |

I’ll normally take a lovely wedding dress picture just after the bride is ready for her big day.

However, sometimes, it’s all a bit to much or the morning is very hectic. It’s never a problem as there are always a few moments free after the wedding ceremony to capture the dress in all it’s glory, with your wedding venue as the backdrop.

Wedding image of the day – Embrace the weather

By |February 22nd, 2019|Categories: Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

Let’s say the word. “Rain”. Every couple dreads it. But if you book the right venue, you shouldn’t. A venue with plenty of space and character gives you a wonderful setting for your big day whatever the weather. If it does rain, well, it’s just part of your story of the day!

Wedding image of the day – Sing!

By |February 19th, 2019|Categories: Clock Barn, Tufton Warren, Whitchurch - Wedding Photographer, Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

I love it when there’s singing at a wedding. You always get a few members of the congregation who sing their hearts out and make up for the rest of us!

Wedding image of the day – The details

By |February 18th, 2019|Categories: Pamber Place Tadley Berkshire Wedding Photographer, Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

I always make a point of looking for the finer details throughout a wedding day.

Couples spend hours searching for the right decorations, all the way up to the dress itself. So when I see the bridal shoes in the box, waiting to be put on, I’ll spend a few moments finding a nice spot for a picture. On this occasion, the wedding veil was the perfect backdrop. Making sure the soles of the wedding shoes were clean of course.

Wedding image of the day – We’ve done it

By |February 17th, 2019|Categories: Clock Barn, Tufton Warren, Whitchurch - Wedding Photographer, Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

I love shots like this. The moment when you walk back down the aisle as a married couple. The smiles say it all. A wonderful moment.

Wedding image of the day – HMS Victory wedding

By |February 16th, 2019|Categories: HMS Victory Wedding Photographer, Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

It’s always fun to do the “Reservoir Dogs” shot with the groomsmen. But really cool when the wedding is on HMS Victory!

Wedding image of the day – Just the two of you

By |February 13th, 2019|Categories: Oakley Hall Hampshire - Wedding Photographer, Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

This is a wedding that I photographed at Oakley Hall.

It’s wonderful when the field at the end of the Oakley Hall estate is full of the year’s crop. A bot of pre-wedding planning and careful placement so as not to damage anything and it takes moments to capture this. A lovely spot for a picture of the bride and groom.

Wedding image of the day – Get a great angle

By |February 12th, 2019|Categories: Queens Hotel, Southsea, Portsmouth - Wedding Photographer, Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

From a photography perspective, weddings are super busy days! You don’t have a chance to think. I’ve photographed well over 200 weddings and I still like to arrive with my mini booklet of shots. Each one is especially designed for that wedding day.

So it was lovely to find a balcony at this church. This is a lovely angle to get on a wedding day and is a collaboration between me and my assistant (who took this shot). As it was planned for, we can quickly get to our positions to capture the images. It’s a great angle to capture that moment when the groom sees his bride for the first time.

You can see their wedding here.

Wedding image of the day – Images that last a lifetime

By |February 11th, 2019|Categories: Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

I’ve not really been big on the latest photography fads. I’ve always tried to develop my own timeless style. That way your wedding images last the test of time.

This image was created using my own black & white process that I created back in 2008. I think it looks as fresh as the day it was taken. I was lucky enough to meet up with Chloe and her husband Nick for a portrait shoot last year with their little boy. They also haven’t changed a bit!

Wedding image of the day – I now pronounce..

By |February 10th, 2019|Categories: Clock Barn, Tufton Warren, Whitchurch - Wedding Photographer, Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

Many moments throughout the day are a once-only event. Having photographed well over 200 weddings, I get to know when these moments are most likely to happen and get ready for them.

I just love this occasion at Clock Barn when the wedding couple are pronounce husband and wife and try to frame it with all the beams, lights, bunting and applause in the background….. and the joy on the bride’s face!

Wedding image of the day – Informal dress shot

By |February 9th, 2019|Categories: Esseborne Manor - Wedding Photographer, Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

What I love most about this image is it’s informality. It was a special request to keep images as natural as possible. The bride was just sitting there, talking to friends and family before she put her shoes on. I though it would make a lovely bridal shot. There’s something about seeing the toes that makes it look so natural and relaxed.

Wedding was shot at Essebourne Manor.

Wedding image of the day – Messing about

By |February 6th, 2019|Categories: Reportage Wedding Photographer, Templars Barn - Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

I love it when kids get up to mischief at a wedding. It keeps me on my toes to capture the moments. They can be anywhere and can get up to pretty much anything! This was a really fun day.

See their wedding here.

Wedding image of the day – Getting ready

By |February 5th, 2019|Categories: Norton Park - Wedding Photographer, Reportage Wedding Photographer|Tags: |

This wedding involved two of my favourite venues. The wedding reception was at Clock Barn with the bride getting ready at Norton Park. When the bride gets ready, it can be a quiet tense moment as the magnitude of the moment sets in. In this occasion, if Kate was nervous, she was hiding it very well. A lovely morning with friends!

And Real People Photography were there to capture that moment!

See their wedding here.
