MY WEDDING PERSPECTIVE - QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN SHOOTING WEDDINGS?
I’ve been shooting weddings professionally for the past 6 years now, started out by a request as the couple loved my style of photography. Today I am a full time wedding photographer hopefully with many years to come.
what is your photographic style?
I tend to look at weddings somewhat differently. I believe that your wedding day should be a celebration of unity, love, laughter and a myriad of emotions. My job is to capture all of this and more from a unique perspective. I insist that weddings should not be stressful and should not follow rules. I shoot weddings in the most relaxed way possible, follow the flow of the day, see how things unfold naturally and simply capture the essence of your special day. I capture the moment, I don’t like the ‘say cheese’ kind of photography. The only moment we stage photos are during the family and group photos, awkward photos and fake smiles are not my piece of cake.
Do you travel for wedding photography?
Sure thing, as you may see in my travel section travelling is one of my passions, keep logged on to view my destination wedding photography.
Do you shoot alone?
A second photographer is a trend that started back in 2014, let us be honest in 90% of the situations they are unnecessary. A lot of photographers offer second photographers by default because they use new talent photographers, people who want to learn. I pride myself in producing quality images and your wedding day is not the place for a new shooter to ‘practice’ their skills.
When will we RECEIVE our photos?
Delivery is crucial to me, my job does not end with your last piece of cake, I will be finalising your wedding photos in a style that remains beautiful not just today but also in 10, 20 years time. I do not outsource my editing to other companies I aim to give my final touch to my own work. My turn-around time is two weeks of your wedding day. All your wedding photos are delivered non watermarked, ready for print. I do not give my clients RAW files, RAW files are purely for editing purposes and for this reason I only have access to these files.
when is the best time to book a love story shoot?
Not all couples wish to get themselves photos before the big day, many feel uncomfortable and I understand them. For this reason I like to communicate with couples who choose to have a love story shoot, these shoots are done casually in places couple feels comfortable. Spring and autumn are the best seasons to capture these stories, booking may be done few weeks in advance.
DO you take a deposit?
Yes, I ask for a €300 deposit, this will secure your wedding day.
we want to know more, can we meet up?
If we are on the same wavelength I would like to meet up with you too, we may discuss your wedding photography and who knows... I might capture your story. Get in touch.
Looking for your wedding photographer can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be.
