I absolutely love photographing weddings; pure and simple. Every special day is unique, and I get to share these most amazing days with such wonderful couples. I love to capture the emotion, the people who share the special day with bride and groom, the details, the seriousness of the vows, that 1st look as the groom sees the bride for the first time, and of course not forgetting the hilarity of most of the best man speeches!
My wedding photography style is a mix of reportage and gently posed images. I pride myself on creating stunning images; with a fun, friendly and relaxed attitude. One of the biggest compliments I receive is people telling me what a wonderful job I have done as I leave without them ever even seeing a photo of mine!
I am delighted to announce that last week, I gained my wedding photographer qualification with The Guild of photographers. Over a year ago I gained general qualification for my portrait work, but I am so pleased to now add the wedding qualification as well.
Becoming ‘Qualified’ with the Guild involves a very rigorous assessment process as not only is photographic talent assessed but customer service as well – probably the most demanding test of all! The award is granted only to photographers who can evidence that they deliver high quality images, products, and customer service. I am now one of only around 50 people in the UK to hold this title, which shows how good an achievement this award is!
To gain qualification I had to submit a total of 21 images from three different weddings. Each set of 7 images had to show my ability to capture the flow and feel of the day, whilst the overall selection had to be varied enough to demonstrate my ability and competency in wedding photography. I also submitted a written assignment on my approach and understanding of wedding photography.
I chose three different weddings that I have photographed in the last year. You may recognise several award-winning images from within the selection that follows as well!
I am available for a limited number of weddings in the UK each year. If you are interested in my being your photographer or would like any more information please do not hesitate to contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
