Creative Wedding Photography

LET’S GET FLASHY

I approach most of your day with a natural, documentary style. That’s not to say you cannot have a few non-posey natural portraits along the way. After all it would be a bit strange not to have photos together on your wedding day! I spend around just 20 mins with you for your, not hours away from everyone, but there’s always an option to explore creative wedding photography a little more if you want to.

I can spend another 5 minutes with my couples if they are up for something a little more creative, or if they want a signature shot in the place they’ve chosen to get wed whether it be inside the venue or outside. I usually spot a creative shot, get it all set up and then it’s 5 minutes for something a little spectacular to go with your set of photos – even if there’s a spot of rain.

These shots don’t involve cheesy poses; just a bit of a laugh together being yourselves and with the party in full swing it’s even more of a breeze as any inhibitions have long since gone.

Sometimes I just set the camera and flashes up in the same way and let the scene or you just play out in front of it. It’s not long before you forget the camera is there and you can the most wonderfully natural moments.

The other advantage with such a creative approach is that you can negate the lack of light. Particularly when the sun goes down early in the winter with the right skill set a whole new world of image making for your day can be had.
