First and most importantly– I am not a traditional wedding photographer.
I’M A NINJA.
OK, I’m not an actual ninja. I’m an unobtrusive creative documentary wedding photographer with a love of light, moment and magic.
This means striving to be inconspicuous as possible, blending in with the background as you and your guests celebrate without worrying about the photography. My goal is to create authentic images that are stunning, meaningful and even (potentially) a bit silly without you ever knowing.
There is a reason my logo is a rather fantastical airship that looks like it flew straight out of a Terry Pratchett novel:
I WANT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS TO TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEY.
To bastardise a quote from my favourite author: I don’t sit down and plan a wedding out before I photograph it. There’s a phrase Pratchett used called “The Valley Full of Clouds.” He used it to describe writing a book but it fits perfectly with wedding photography. Shooting a wedding is like going on a journey across a valley…
“The valley is full of mist, but you can see the top of a tree here and the top of another tree over there. And with any luck you can see the other side of the valley. But you cannot see down into the mist. Nevertheless, you head for the first tree.”
When you come to me to shoot your wedding, I make sure you get something truly special. Not only do I try to ensure that every shot is real – candid, meaningful, and creatively framed – I ensure that they are processed and displayed to the finest possible standard.
Mostly, though, my job at the wedding is to be all but invisible. You and your guests can enjoy this momentous, once-in-a-lifetime event in a real, honest and joyful way, and still have the best moments saved forever.
So if you’re looking at a rigidly-organised shot list drawn up by a bored author writing for a mainstream bridal website, I’m probably not the right photographer for you. If you’re looking for epic creativity and “OMG!” moments captured with minimum fuss; let me show you my work!
