Photography styles differ greatly and this is the aspect that you should consider the most when choosing your photographer.
My photographic style can best be described as subtle, creative, natural and slightly retro / vintage. I won’t bring a whole load of lighting kit and I steer away from the ultra glossy look. I like details, quirks, interesting views / sightlines, quiet moments, scale, and creative portraits.
I’m a creative person in general and in a photography sense, I’m drawn to compositions and ideas that are inspired by my interests in film, graphics, etc – especially with the bridal and couple portraits. I like to look for the extraordinary, whether that’s in the composition itself, or the background.
You’ll get a good idea of my style from the Portfolio page on this website, but I’d be more than happy to discuss it in more detail with you if you have specific questions.
I try to work unobtrusively during all of the formal aspects, but for the informal times I’ll get a bit more involved in the action. I find this a better approach than standing on the sidelines and zooming in from afar. I’m friendly and personable, and always ready to talk to guests and put them at ease if I think they look or feel a little awkward in front of the camera.
I always try to use natural light where possible because I feel this gives a truer representation of the day. I also think it injects a bit more atmosphere into your photographs, too. However, I will use a flash if the weather / light requires it.
