"...Keeping it honest for easy going and light-hearted couples"
If you are the type of person that is stress free and relaxed, and are planning a Somerset wedding that is just that - I’m probably the right wedding photographer for you. My whole ethos, in life and my career, is to ensure that what happens gets documented. The good, the bad and the ugly. All the real-life moments. I have a light-hearted approach that likes to simply to put two fingers up to the Instagram culture of mass-marketed perfection.
On the other hand, I’m super passionate about my portrait work. So if you like beautiful images; appreciate good light in photographs; and are not planning on losing your shit if your hair is a bit wind swept - Keep reading.
"...on trend, but classic"
My work is classic. I'am not a preset warrior. I like to keep things as close to real-life colour as I can. I don't mess around making weddings shot in Somerset, look like they are taken in some far flung place on the edge of Europe. It's on trend enough, that it wont go out of trend! You won't be looking back in 20 years time thinking WOW! why the hell is there a weird hue in the sky or why do the trees look like it's winter - when I actually actually had a summer wedding?
The whole point for me, is to ensure that the images I give couples have longevity.. Not just image's that make an impact on instagram in 2022 and then by 2023 - look dated. It's not about me or the industry, its about YOU the couple, and making sure what happened is documented and actually looks authentic.
"...Unobtrusive, well kind of"
Typically throughout a wedding day, I won't get in your way, I will keep myself to myself. I like to chat to folks from time to time - I'm never going to ask you or your guests to do anything that makes you feel like you are acting. Apart from if people during family portraits look like rabbits in headlights.. I might try to mix it up then.
I mean, sure, if you want couple shots on your wedding day, i'm going to have to guide you in some way. Unless of course, you are actually a model, then you will know exactly what do do! But, 9 time out of 10, the couples that book me, are straight up normal folks who are not featuring on the front of magzines for a living. There maybe a few times I ask you to move to the natural light during bridal prep - if in the heat of the moment you choose to get your shoes on in a cupboard or corner of the room. But, a part from that, its your day, your life, your aspiration to have done things your way. It's a documentary approach. 95% of my wedding coverage being made up with natural documentary wedding photography or videography footage as the wedding day itself unfolds. So that's shots of you having giggles with your bridesmaid's on the wedding morning, ( i'm never going to ask you and your bridesmaids to fake laugh ) or shots of the father of bride seeing you for the first time in your dress. Plus all those sweet and funny little moments between.
The remaining 5%... is made up of stunning wedding portraits, beautiful cinematic wedding footage for wedding films or family group shots, plus those beautiful bridal photographs you will see on my website and social media pages.
