Our Approach to Photographing Weddings
“Passionate about photography. We don’t believe any other form of communication can capture a moment or tell a story quite so powerfully.”
Every wedding story is different because every couple is unique and your wedding is about you and your loved ones.
From dressing to dancing. We capture the special moments, drama and emotion of your day as they happen in a timeless and natural style. We combine spontaneous photos with a series of creatively directed dynamic portraits, creating a portfolio of beautiful images that will be treasured for generations to come.
Our Wedding Photography Style
We shoot natural and beautiful images with a hint of fine art. Working primarily with natural light our style creates timeless images, in both the shooting of the photographs and the post-production process.
We take great care in post-production and we individually edit every image that forms a part of the final collection. We want your photos to age well and not to look dated as styles and fashions change so our editing style is rather subtle, we don’t use trendy filters or instagram effects!
We take delight in creating timeless photos that capture the passion, emotion and fun of your special day. A laugh, a sneaky kiss, images of those closest to you sharing in your special moments and love. Formal family photos have their place too if you want them.
At times during the day we will direct you into shots and poses that we know, from experience, work and make you look fantastic. Many ‘natural looking’ images in bridal magazines and online have been painstakingly directed in order to achieve that casually natural look. A little bit of guidance from us, directing you to the best light or slightly changing the pose, will help you achieve a composed natural style for your photos.
Before the Wedding
It’s important that we meet with you before your wedding as we’ll be spending one of the most important days of your life with you!
We’ll discuss your specific ideas and chat about the plans for your day to ensure that it’s possible for us to take the photos that you want and equally that you feel comfortable with us, our style and our approach.
Establishing a good relationship with your wedding photographer can make a huge difference to the outcome of your wedding images. The more relaxed you feel with us, the more comfortable and at ease you’ll appear in the photographs.
On the Day
Ally will start with the Bride whilst AJ is with the Groom capturing the pre-wedding preparations. We then meet up at the ceremony and work together for the rest of the day.
Many wedding photographers work with a second photographer but we are a husband and wife team. We live together, we work together, we understand each other and we often know what the other is shooting before they’ve pressed the shutter! We have a natural understanding between us that is unique, one that you won’t get between a primary photographer and a second shooter they’ve simply hired for the day. We believe this enables us to work smarter and gives you a wider variety of images in your portfolio covering more of those personal, special moments for you to treasure.
We both shoot the day as it happens until the speeches and your first dance, after which we’ll leave you to party with your guests!
