When it comes to me and photography, there is only one word that sums it up, obsessed! I think, do, talk, research all things photography 24/7 and I don't have a friend or family member who hasn't being caught up in my enthusiasm and subsequently purchased a camera - normally in excess of their needs and budget.
However, I make no apologies because photography and more specifically - wedding photography is my passion, it's that simple! This is a bold statement and somewhat 'cheesy' if you ask me, but it is the truth for the simple reason that I love photographing people. So with this in mind, it's easy to see why I love wedding photography. Your wedding day is the perfect canvas for me to use my talent and years of experience as a wedding photographer to capture all of your beautiful memories that you've probably dreamt about for ages. A day that will carry your hopes and dreams, a day that will live long in your memory as a blur of joy and happiness, love and togetherness, a day that will incapsulate some of the most meaningful moments of your life. It is your one and only wedding day and I for one would love to capture those unique moments that will make up a lifetime of cherished memories for you and your love ones.
Unfortunately, many photographers see weddings as an ideal opportunity to make a fast buck with little or no experience. In this digital age, it's very easy to buy a digital camera, take a workshop, get some photoshop actions, download a website template, fill it with images of 'wedding models' from that wedding photography workshop and you are off and running. Isn't it great that it is so easy to be a wedding photographer now? In many respects it is, but due to the one off nature of a wedding, don't trust your priceless memories to an inexperienced photographer just because he has a few nice photos and is cheap. I guess what I'm trying to say is you get what you pay for and there is a very good reason why seasoned wedding photographers charge what why do. It's a case of, been there, done that, got the t-shirt and therefore your beautiful day will be captured by a true professional that knows through years of experience what to expect and the best way to capture it to tell the story of your perfect wedding day.
The opportunity to capture the love, beauty, drama and overwhelming emotion of one of the most special days in your life is the reason I became a professional wedding photographer. So, all of my bride and grooms can look forward to working with a photographer who is fun, yet professional and is gifted with the ability to make you feel at ease in front of the camera so as to capture the real you. Therefore, while you immerse yourself in the splendour of your wedding day, I will blend into the background and record each moment that makes your celebration so special.
