It is always a difficult job to narrow down images from hundreds of weddings to a very few. A wedding portfolio gives you an idea of the images that I like to take and that you could expect from your wedding day. I chose below 40 images to illustrate my style. The order could have been totally different, I like them all for different reasons. I made a few notes below to share my thought process at the moment of taking the image and why I like these images. Enjoy and please contact me directly to discuss your wedding photography requirements.
“The throw of the bouquet is a tradition that some couples decide to follow. From a photographer’s perspective, I have fun capturing this moment even though I do not set it up or request that it happens. I love the joy and energy in the image above as well as the expressions.”
“Speeches can be very emotional with tears and laughter. I love capturing frames with emotion. The best man makes a great job here and I love his expression as well as the reaction from the other guests at the top table.”
“Including a night portrait when possible, is a good way to closing the story of the wedding day. This image also provides context of the wedding venue chosen by Sarah and Sean and of the gorgeous weather they had on the day.”
“An environmental image helps set the scene and describe the location of the drinks reception. This image was taken as guests were arriving at Leadenhall’s Market for the wedding reception. I included the Route Master as I knew it was important for the couple and it adds to the story”.
“Portraits are important during the wedding day. I like to do them quickly so that you can spend time with your guests. I tend to capture candid moments, but I liked this close up shot looking at the camera”.
“This is a favourite candid moment of mine. I saw this shot as I was inside capturing some of the other guests. I waited (and hoped) for the man on the right to move to the right so that I could have a story in each third.”
“I took advantage of the balcony area at Hedsor House to capture the moment the bride and groom leave the ceremony room as husband and wife. It laos help showcase the amazing venue chosen by the couple and provide a more unusual view point. “
“There was a vintage feel to this marquee wedding. I wanted to take a wide shot to include the couple and their guests in the background. When you look closely, you can see the reactions of the guests too..”
“Including the environment is essential to story telling images. The bride and groom got married at the Marriott County Hall and it was important for me to include an image showcasing the surroundings of the venue”.
“I had taken a portrait from the the other side from the beach and as I walked round and came up, the bride and groom were playing as they were waiting for me. I captured this lovely portrait showcasing the Brighton Pavilion”.
“Sometimes it rains at some weddings. Likely the weather turn out glorious a few minutes after this image was taken. Rain allows for some strong images in my opinion and I love this candid portrait. Whatever the weather or circumstances, I am alert in order to create emotive images, captured naturally”.
“A tender moment between the bride and her mum, during the groom’s speech”.“From the moment I arrived at the venue, I knew that I would use this lovely arch at the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn in London. A carefully placed flash behind the couple allowed me to create this simple yet powerful image”.
