INVITE ME TO
I’M THE EXTRA GUEST YOU JUST HAVEN’T MET YET
Hiya! You’re on this page, which means you’re planning a wedding. Congratulations!
Choosing your wedding photographer is a huge decision. There are a lot of crazy talented people who can take awesome pictures. Jees, iphones can take such great photos these days that there are more ‘photographers’ than ever before. So how do you narrow it down and pick?
For me, the key is finding the right fit. Whoever you book to take your wedding photos, will be a huge part of your day. You’re inviting them to your wedding. You’d be inviting me to your wedding, and although I hope you’ll forget I’m there, the only way you’re going to do that is if you know me well enough to trust me with this super big day in your life. So I would recommend you start with reading a bit about me.
Telling the day just as it happened (but with a helping hand)
I often get told my wedding photography style is dark and moody. But honestly, it’s not meant to be! I keep my edit minimal and timeless, with natural skin tones and warm, earthy colours. I want to look at the photos and see the people you really are. Not unrecognisable Disney versions of you I’ve conjured up in post.
But when it comes to photos, little details make a big difference. Background clutter, chairs just slightly out of line, wonky veils, skewiff buttonholes…ahh! They drive me mad! And I’ll be damned if I’m going to let one person in sunglasses ruin a shot! So I’m not going to spend hours photoshopping things out or giving you a tropical tan. But I will take 30 seconds here and there to make things look their best in the moment.
But there’ll be some photos where you won’t even notice skin tones or a wonky veil. Where the smiles on your faces and the love in your eyes is all you’ll ever see. So I’ll never stop too long in one place, or ask you to endlessly pose for me. Because no carefully-crafted set up could ever compare to the beauty of a perfectly imperfect moment that happened all by itself.
A MINDFUL EXPERIENCE
grounded in love
You’ve found your person! The one person in the whole world who loves you no matter what. And that’s what your wedding day should be about, right? Not constantly pausing the fun and posing for photos. But focusing on each other, and celebrating your love in a way that’s right for you.
But I do ask just one small favour of you. For twenty minutes or so, let’s leave the party behind for a while and take some time out with just the three of us. You’ll never feel more loved than you do on your wedding day. And that one-in-a-million love deserves to be captured and celebrated in a space where you feel free to be yourselves.
My couple’s portraits are all about capturing your unique love language, whatever that may be. So if you want to kiss and cuddle, go for it. If you want to be silly and make jokes, go wild. If you want to hold hands, get deep and talk about your future, that’s cool too. I won’t ask you to do anything you wouldn’t naturally do. All I ask is that you be in the moment, and let your hearts be filled.
Things you should know…
Victory loves preparation
I treat every wedding like it’s my best friend’s wedding. And as your new best friend, I’ll do everything I can to make sure your day runs as smooth as a buttered otter.
I’ll help you with your timeline, so you don’t spend your day watching the clock or worrying you’re going to overrun. I’ll suggest videographers and local suppliers I’ve worked with before, so you know you can trust who you’ve chosen. I’ll even help you with styling advice and ideas if you’re feeling lost or need some inspiration.
I’ve been a wedding photographer for 5 years now, and I’ve been to a lot of weddings. So use me! I want to help!
Communication is key
From the moment you book me, my whole process is completely centred around giving you an easy, enjoyable experience.
I have a closed Facebook group where you can share ideas, tips and advice with other couples. We have several calls in the run up to iron out any issues you might have, and flag up any potential disasters waiting to happen! If you want to book yourself in for an engagement shoot to get to know each other properly and get comfy in front of the camera, I’d love to do that too. I even have an online wedding magazine with all the tips and advice you could ever need.
Basically I’ll be as involved with your planning as much or as little as you need me to. But as soon as you book me, I’ll always be happy to help.
Photoshop is a dirty word
I believe the beauty of my work comes in its authenticity. So I don’t do photoshop, and I won’t change anyone’s appearance. Your granny or your grandkids (or even future you!) won’t want to look at a photo that doesn’t actually look like you. So please stop using Instagram filters or Facetune before your wedding if you haven’t already!
And anyway, you’ve found your soulmate, and they love you for who and what you are. You are beautiful just as you are, and that’s the person I want to capture. The person your partner fell in love with.
All the moments
