Wedding Portrait Photography
I’ll take a little time to create some stylish and romantic photos that show how amazing you looked and how in love you are, with the amazing venue you’ve chosen as the backdrop. Swoon!
Room for romance
You might be nervous about this bit, most couples are, so we’ll find somewhere private for your portraits. No heckling Hattie’s or Harry’s allowed! That way, it’s also a great opportunity for you to spend some quality time together away from the hubbub of the party.
The style of your portraits will be personalised to suit you so whether you want just a few natural couple shots or more of a fashion style photo shoot, you’ve got it! It’s a joint effort with me suggesting some flattering poses and you bringing the love. They’re lightly directed but not so controlled that you can’t breathe or let your emotions show.
Taking 10-20 minutes while your guests find their seats for dinner often works well because it means you get to spend the maximum amount of time with your guests during your drinks reception. Your guests won’t miss you at this point and you’d just waiting around for them to sit down anyway.
Having a receiving line? We can take 10 minutes out from the drinks reception instead and if you fancy it, there’s always after dinner (if you’re getting married early enough in the day for it still to be light).
Fancy using a location other than your reception venue?
Cool beans. Whether it be your church or somewhere en route like a beach or barn of hay bales, let’s chat about it. If the logistics work, let’s do it!
Golden glow. Blue hue.
If it works with your wedding day timings, there are opportunities for portraits at golden hour, sunset and twilight too. With a little imagination and creativity we can turn that amazing light into a photo full of drama. We could do a romantic silhouette or we could create something fashion influenced with flash. #wallworthy
Less trad, more chill
How about a US style first look? It’s also a lovely moment for just the two of you before the craziness starts and everyone wants to chat. Let me capture your emotional reactions as you see each other for the first time on your wedding day, with no-one else around and then have your portrait session at the same time.
Or you could even consider a post-wedding shoot the day after – an excuse to extend the fun and get photos without the time pressure of your wedding day. This works especially well if you want to make use of several locations in the grounds of a big venue.
